What Are Cannabis Edibles?

Cannabis edibles refer to foods and beverages (and sometimes more novel items like pills) that are infused with cannabis. These products are designed to be consumed orally. Because of their consumption method, edibles take a bit longer to yield effects. They’re typically the most popular product at every Boulder dispensary, though, because of their no-fuss approach and the simple fact that they don’t require any special equipment to use.

What to Know About Cannabis Edibles

Cannabidiol (CBD) edibles are a convenient alternative to smoking or vaping cannabis. Before you get started, there are a few things you should know about enjoying cannabis edibles:

Before consuming any form of edible cannabis, scrutinize the label. If you’re trying edibles for the first time, start with 2.5 milligrams of THC and wait until you experience the effects (which could take two or more hours) before increasing your dosage. It’s also wise to educate yourself on the effects that THC and CBD can have on the brain and body.

Make room in your agenda because the effects of edibles can last for a while. They may remain for up to 12 hours, while the aftereffects can linger for up to 24 hours.

Take your time and relax to get the most out of the product. The “high” won’t set in for a while–think 30 minutes to two hours–and then it will likely peak about four hours after ingestion. In contrast, the effects of smoking or vaping cannabis typically begin to take hold within a few minutes and reach their peak within 30 minutes.

Select a sweet or savory cannabis-infused food that you’ll actually enjoy eating. Choose tasty treats to enhance your adventure. You can find almost any snack food imaginable in short order, from cookies to chocolate bars to potato chips.

Examples of Different Types of Cannabis Edibles

  • Beverages: Seltzers, shots, and water enhancers
  • Baked Goods: Brownies, cookies, and cakes
  • Hard Candy: Mints, lozenges, and lollipops
  • Savory Snacks: Chips, crackers, and jerky
  • Gummies: Gummy bears, drops, and chews,
  • Gourmet Candy: Chocolate bars and caramels
  • Pills: No chewing necessary


What Is the Typical Potency of an Edible?

  • THC edibles ranging from 1 to 2.5 mg are considered a microdose
  • THC treats containing 3 to 5 mg have a low potency
  • THC edibles containing 10 to 15 mg have a moderate potency
  • THC edibles containing 20 to 30 mg have a high potency
  • THC edibles containing 50 to 100 mg have a very high potency

Do Edibles Affect Your Digestive Tract?

While cannabis edibles may cause digestive discomfort, the possibility of developing liver damage or other acute organ failure is incredibly low. If you’re having digestive or intestinal troubles after consuming edibles, it could be due to the treat’s high sugar content or a poor infusion procedure.

Are Edibles Legal in the United States?

Yes, edibles made from cannabis and hemp that have been Clean Green CertifiedTM are legal in some U.S. states.
