FAQ Cannabionid Edibles

While smoking cannabis allows cannabinoids to be rapidly inhaled into the lungs and introduced into the bloodstream (with effects peaking in about ten minutes), edibles are digested. This means their effects might not peak until two to three hours after consumption, lasting around six hours. The type of food or drink can also influence the timing and potency of the edible’s effects.

These are cannabis-infused drinks. While “edible” can refer to both food and drink, cannabis-infused beverages are often specifically labeled as liquid edibles or drinkables.

Potent edibles can lead to heightened sensory perception, relaxation, sleepiness, dizziness and euphoria. These effects vary based on the individual and the edible.

Hemp foods are made from non-psychoactive cannabis products. They do not induce the typical effects associated with THC and are consumed for their nutritional benefits rather than any potential psychoactive effects.
