As edibles have a meteoric rise in popularity in light of increased legalization, these predosed, delicious treats are a great way to give the gift of getting high without any of the hassle. Not all edibles are created equal, so here are a few of our favorites for your edible-loving loved ones.
What are Edibles?
Edibles are any food or drink infused with cannabinoids like THC, CBD, and more. Cannabis is lipid soluble, so it's usually infused into a fat like butter, oil, or alcohol to be made into a tincture. These infusions can then be used to create anything from a small treat to a full meal.
Taking edibles is a more potent form of cannabis than smoking bud because the THC is metabolized by our digestive systems and livers instead of going straight from the lungs to the bloodstream, making it last much longer in the body.
Why are They So Popular?
Edibles have become much more popular in recent years because they have opened the world of cannabis to those who would rather eat or drink their THC than smoke it. This allows older people, people who suffer from asthma issues, runners, and those who don't like to light up to partake. It also lasts longer in the body, as mentioned previously, making edibles an excellent choice for any adventure that lies ahead of you.
