Edibles are elevated, fam. We don’t have to choke down a dank, leafy brownie to feel that body buzz and super psychoactive state. You can feed your head with cannabis infused food from soup to your after dinner mint. We’re here to explore sophisticated edibles.
Eating marijuana produces different effects than smoking or vaping it. These effects aren’t radically different, however. They generally feel more intense and even a little hallucinogenic. This is because your body accesses and transforms the cannabis into a different compound.
Smoking cannabis results in a compound called delta-9 THC while eating it results in delta-11 THC. Therefore, some people chow down on cannabis to get lifted in that special way.
Others want to receive the medical benefits or cognitive effects of cannabis without the dangers of combustion. Eating pot infused food isolates you from any negative smoking effects.
Finally, some growers use their trimmings to create THC infused food and this salvages product that would otherwise go to waste.
Eating cannabis edibles also creates a slower uptake that lasts longer. For this reason, it’s useful to people using cannabis for chronic pain.
There are a few notable examples of the changing face of cannabis edibles.

Higgins isn’t the only experimental cannabis candy maker. Cannabakers and confectioners are making everything from THC cake pops to artisan truffles.
