Why Consume Cannabis Edibles?
There’s something special about edibles.
Of course, you can smoke, vape, or take CBD oils or capsules – all great choices to help your wellness in all sorts of ways.
When you eat a weed edible it takes longer for your body to absorb, but when it finally does? You’ll feel a big difference compared to other ways of consumption.
By eating cannabis-infused meals or snacks, it needs to pass through your liver.
The liver processes everything, breaks things down, balances, and creates nutrients as well as metabolizes cannabis into smaller forms that the rest of the body can use!
Think of it like a high-end, super quality filter for your body.
Smoking or vaping pot goes straight to the brain, but eating an edible forces your liver to metabolize everything much, much quicker.
So while it may take a little longer to feel the effects of an edible, the experience is deeper and possibly more relaxing than other ways of enjoying marijuana.
The Importance of Decarboxylation
For almost all weed edibles, you need to decarboxylate your bud.
Basically, this means you need to cook it at a specific temperature.
By decarbing, it will make your weed more potent in an edible. Otherwise, you won’t feel very much of an effect at all.
We have a great how-to video below:
