What Are Cannabis Edibles?

We’ve evolved beyond the pot brownies of old. Modern edibles are much different, and much improved.

Produced by infusing a product with cannabis oil or cannabis butter, edibles can range from baked goods and chocolate bars to drinks and capsules. Thanks to legalization, the quality and variety of cannabis-infused edible products continues to improve and grow. All edible products in our dispensaries are tested at independent, third-party laboratories for potency, microbial contaminants, and homogeneity.

A Tasty Way to Consume THC

Despite how delicious edible products can be, it’s important to remember that these are medicated products. The effects of edibles may take up to two hours to be felt, and the resulting high can last for up to 6 hours or more. Consumers typically report a more intense high and stronger body effects compared to inhaled cannabis products.

How to Consume Edibles

The number one rule of edibles: always take it slow. Edibles can take up to two hours before their effects are felt. The standard edible dose is 10 milligrams (mg). For beginners, an initial 5mg dose is advised. Edibles are required by Colorado law to be divided up into 10mg doses in order to facilitate safe and responsible consumption. Be sure to carefully read the packaging to understand the doses contained within the product before you start consuming.

Edibles represent a form of higher saturation consumption. Do not operate any machinery or motor vehicles for the remainder of the day after consuming an edible. It is illegal to drive after consuming marijuana, and offenders can be cited with a DUI.

Packaging & Storing Edibles

The packaging for edibles and the edibles, themselves, are required by law to include the universal symbol denoting cannabis, which is a diamond inscribed with “THC!”

It’s important that you store your edibles in a secure place out of the reach of children. Store it right: locked up, out of sight, and out of reach.
