Smoking Cannabis is “so last year”. Smokeless Cannabis Remedies and Edibles are something most patients seek out. If you’ve ever been to a dispensary, you’ve probably seen a whole variety of gummies, hard candies, cookies, brownies and more. How do you choose what to get and how strong?

With ALL Cannabis products, you want to “start low and go slow”. Eating the “whole enchilada” is NEVER a good idea unless you know for sure that there are just a couple milligrams of medicine in the product. If you didn’t process the Cannabis and make the edible you can’t know what’s really in it, so … don’t eat the whole thing at once.

Cannabis edibles are very tricky in that they react differently under different circumstances. What you eat and when you eat it, in regards to other foods, totally affects the “high” or lack of high one experiences. Some people get rather upset because they don’t “feel anything” (didn’t get high) yet others get upset when they do. There is much at play here, but the one thing you can control the most is what you eat and when you eat it. If you don’t want to get high, avoid food containing fat and eat your meat and potato meal, take your Cannabis with your meal and you should be fine.

If you are hoping to get “elevated” eat your edible SLOWLY first of all – let it run around in your mouth! If you eat it with something fatty, it kicks the liver into metabolizing the fat and the Cannabis, and elevated you are. It can take from 15 minutes to 2 hours to feel an edible, so time and patience is a must!

Another huge consideration is how well the Cannabis was decarboxylated, or was it too decarboxylated? If the THC is not activated, you don’t get high. Time and temperature are what it takes. Eat it fresh in your salad, smoothie, or tea without too much blending and you will be fine. Just like any fresh food, it tastes better when you wash it before you eat it. Call and schedule your appointment! Please remember, do not medicate and drive or operate machinery.
