The popularity of edibles has increased tenfold in recent years. Marijuana is increasingly being accepted by mainstream society, legalizing it for medical purposes and recreational use on a state-by-state basis.
Marijuana legalization has led to new trends such as marijuana-infused edibles and THC gummies – small doses of THC mixed up into sugar packets that are popular among people who need quick relief from pain or anxiety without smoking raw or making do with other options like eating raw cannabis (i.e., brownies).
In the infographic below, we’ll distinguish between two types of edibles marijuana – gummies (THC gummies) and cannabis (THC infused edibles).
Gummies are like sweets that contain a high amount of THC compared to other edibles. You can easily spot them in any adult-themed store. THC-infused candies come in different shapes and forms, like gummy bears and other sweet treats made of gelatin and sugar. Most of these products have up to 100 mg of THC per package, with each piece containing 10mg, thus offering different concentrations for users who want more or less THC per bite.
In contrast, cannabis edibles are food products infused with THC. Marijuana-infused butter or oil is used to make various kinds of homemade goodies such as brownies, cookies, and cakes.
However, there are also professionally produced products available on the market that offer different THC levels in each item. Ounce for ounce, most cannabis edibles have more than one serving per ounce. The high can last up to four hours, and the sedative effects may ultimately take up to eight hours to wear out. Users can easily control their dosage by eating only a tiny portion of edibles containing different concentrations of THC or by eating smaller amounts of homemade treats containing higher potency marijuana butter or oils.
THC gummies are the most popular choice among marijuana users. While smoking is the fastest way to feel the effects of weed, delta 8 thc gummies give a similar feeling with or without smoking, making them a good alternative for patients who don’t want to light up their buds. Gummies are easy to use because you can swallow or chew one and wait for it to kick in. Some edibles dissolve faster than others, so it’s always best to check the label for recommended amounts and consumption times. The effects of THC gummies can last anywhere from 3-6 hours.
In conclusion, there’s a vast variety of cannabis edibles available for sale. Each one is designed to suit different needs and tastes, offering various THC levels in each edible so they can be used as directed by consumers.
