With cannabis legalization sweeping the continent, we’ve seen a lot of exciting changes come to the industry. One of those changes involves the development of an elaborate edibles market. Gone are the days of stale brownies – now there are a host of delicious options. But with so many products for sale, how do you find the best edibles?
Here are a few tips to help you find the perfect edibles for you.
Resources for Finding the Best Edibles
There are a variety of resources available when it comes to finding the best edibles:
The first step to finding the best of just about anything involves searching online.
Keep in mind that at this point, most cannabis products tend to have fairly localized markets, so search for products close to you. The easiest way to do this is by Googling “best edibles in INSERT LOCATION”. If you live in a state where cannabis is legal, some journalist or blogger has almost certainly compiled the info you’re looking for.
Ask a budtender
Sometimes the easiest way to find a great product is to ask. I especially like asking my dispensary budtenders for recommendations. They always have the latest dope on new products, and they know exactly what to ask to find those that offer the effect I’m looking for.
Sometimes finding the “best” is a matter of experimenting and finding what’s right for you. Try a variety of products using different cannabis quantities and different cannabis strains.
Make your own
Perhaps the best edible will be the one you produce yourself. Sometimes it’s as easy as adding cannabis oil or cannabis infused butter to your favorite dish, although the weedy flavor is too strong for some recipes. There are some great cannabis cookbooks on the market that will help you create something delicious and effective.
The main thing to keep in mind when it comes to edibles involves knowing your limit. Eating cannabis tends to deliver a much stronger effect than smoking it, and it is not uncommon for people to overindulge and find themselves having a less than pleasant time. Or they don’t realize that edibles can sometimes take hours to kick in, so they eat and eat thinking nothing is happening, then “KAZAM!” It hits them all at once and they find themselves overwhelmed.
So ask around the find a great product, experiment to find those you prefer, make your own, and always be mindful of your limits – that’s all there is to it. In no time at all, you’ll be munching your way to pure relaxation, and usually a great body high.
