What you Need to Know About Cannabis and Sleep

There are a lot of rumors that go around about using cannabis for different reasons.One question that I get a lot on here refers to the problems associated with using cannabis for sleep. Sleeping is one of the most important things that we can do for both our physical and mental well being, but many Americans report having trouble sleeping many nights of the week. It is true that chronic insomnia is a huge problem in the United States, and it can be caused by a variety of factors and conditions. Some people have trouble falling asleep due to certain mental health problems or lifestyle choices, while others deal with chronic disease and pain that can make it hard to sleep due to the discomfort. Either way, it is really important to get some sleep at night and many people are struggling to do that. However, what about using cannabis for sleep?

After all, a lot of sleeping medications can be dangerous and addictive after using them long-term, and things like melatonin only work once in a blue moon. What if there was a more natural drug that people could use to help them fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer? Well, cannabis may be the solution. However, I know that there are a lot of myths about cannabis and sleep, and that is why I am writing this article today. Did you know that marijuana is becoming more and more popular in the United States with each passing year? And sleep is one of the reasons that people choose to use marijuana. So, before you make assumptions and listen to rumors about medical marijuana for sleeping, make sure that you read the rest of this article to learn everything that you need to know about marijuana for sleep.

The first myth about using cannabis for sleep is that THC is the only thing that can contribute to being able to sleep better. If you have ever read one of my other articles about using marijuana for sleep, then you probably remember me recommending different strains for sleeping – many of these strains probably have high THC content. However, it is important to keep in mind that THC is not the end all be all when it comes to using cannabis to cure insomnia. IN fact, some research suggests that cannabidiol (CBD) is super important for being able to get quality sleep and hit your REM cycle or whatever. CBD is different from THC because it does not give you that head high that you may associate with using weed. Instead, CBD offers a lot of health benefits for your brain and your body that are really beneficial in the long term.

Another myth that I have seen going around about using cannabis for sleep is that there are no risks attached to it. The problem with this myth is that it is not necessarily true. While cannabis is a natural drug that does not have a lot of harmful side effects, there are always risks when it comes to using drugs, cannabis included. One thing to keep in mind is that cannabis comes with certain drawbacks. If you are consuming high amounts of THC before going to bed each night, you may experience something like a sleep hangover, which can cause you to stay awake longer into the night and feel very tired in the morning. I actually have a very hard time falling asleep and staying asleep after using cannabis, but it also depends on the strain that I am using too.

You Can Make CBD Topicals At Home

Is buying your CBD getting a bit too pricey? No worries, we understand. CBD and other cannabis related products can charge a pretty penny, especially if you are relying on these substances to get through the day without chronic pain or anxiety. If you are unfamiliar with what CBD topicals are, let me go ahead and tell you about them. There are many health benefits associated with CBD topicals.

While some people use creams and salves to help with chronic pain management, others use CBD topicals to help with wound care or surgery recovery and healing. Either way, there is no doubt in my mind (nor in scientific studies and clinical trials) that CBD has great health benefits and is great for many individuals who rely on its healing properties. So what kind of stuff can you make at home? Honestly, it depends on what you’re in the mood for. You can make everything from lip balm, lotions, ointments, soaps, shampoos, to oils and lubricants.

The creativity is all up to you, my friend. Interestingly, some people even use CBD in the form of toothpaste or mouthwash. If you’re looking for different recipes for making your own CBD topicals, I unfortunately do not have any for you today.

However, I do know of several places where you can go to get them. Pinterest is a great place to start and has more recipes than you can count. I go there to find all sorts of recipes or instructions on how to make CBD topicals and other products. You can also add in other ingredients to your topicals to really make them special and unique to you, like green tea extract, matcha, charcoal, raw organic herbs and spices, and other types of concentrates.

In some states, medical marijuana patients are allowed to grow cannabis in their own home. If that’s the case for you, then you have a great opportunity to make your own CBD or hemp products at home. Natural plant extracts help with localized pain relief and can even enhance your mood and reduce stress. Some people like to use aromatherapy in this way. Honestly, the possibilities with cannabis are endless. So if you have some time at home because of the pandemic and want to try your hand at making CBD or THC topicals, what can you start making? Well, like I said, you can really try anything. It is worth noting that hemp is more affordable to buy than cannabis, and you can use the seeded flower to crush and make your own topicals at home.

One of the main types of CBD topicals involve skin care, which is a huge industry in the beauty world. There are numerous benefits to using CBD products for your skincare routine, and cannabidiols have powerful antioxidant properties that can help you combat dry skin, wrinkles, and other forms of aging or dying skin. There is even evidence of cannabidiol helping skin conditions like acne or hives, since it is a strong anti-inflammatory. CBD topicals can help reduce the redness, swelling, and itching associated with most skin conditions or problems. This makes skincare one of the most popular uses for CBD topicals.

Another very popular CBD product to make at home is soap. Whether you want to make bar soap, shampoo, conditioner, or bath bombs, CBD topicals have your back. These types of products soothe dry, cracked, and irritated skin in ways that other topicals simply cannot. I hope that this article was helpful for you and that you can try your hand at making CBD topicals for yourself at home this winter!

Why Weed is Important When Working From Home

We are now almost done with our second year of dealing with the COVID19 pandemic. Where has that left our citizens of the United States? For some, stress and fatigue are becoming the new normal. It’s no secret that the effects of COVID19 have created higher levels of anxiety and depression in our country for a variety of reasons.

Between the economic insecurity, health crisis, loss, working from home, and being isolated from the rest of the world, it’s no wonder why people are struggling just to get through the day on a regular basis. Professionals who are working from home are feeling the effects of depression or anxiety even harder in some cases. Obviously, everyone is different – some people actually prefer working from home and are glad to avoid the daily commute that used to be so familiar. However, before the pandemic, most people did not feel the need to self-medicate with cannabis during work hours.

Interestingly, this fact may be changing due to the nature of the pandemic and many people working from home. In fact, as many as 41% of the workforce in the United States is working from home, which can lead to strong feelings of isolation and depression. With that being said, using cannabis while working may become a bit more normal in the future. How many times have you been at work and thought, “dang, I wish I could just smoke some marijuana right now”? It is crazy to think that this may become a reality for some of us in the near future. In fact, I am high right now while I’m writing this article (for legal reasons this is a joke). 

How does working at home affect us? There are actually recent studies being done to determine the effects that some of us face while working from home. Like I said earlier, some people are better equipped to work remotely than others, so it really depends on the person. However, studies show that 30% of people who worked from home said that they felt disconnected from their supervisors and managers, while 25% said they felt less connected to their coworkers and peers. 56% of people who responded said that the pandemic had strained their relationships with their coworkers and peers as well.

The problem with working from home is that anxiety levels are often increasing in adults in the United States. In fact, the results of a mental health survey done recently stated that more than 42% of people reported symptoms of anxiety or depression. When compared to the previous year, that is an increase of over 11%. As many of you know, cannabis can be an effective medical treatment for those of us who struggle with anxiety or stress levels that are beyond what we can handle. For some people, using cannabis while working from home seems like the only way to get through the day. 

Some companies in much more progessive states have considered using marijuana use as a new job perk. In states where recreational marijuana is legalized, this may become an option to professionals working from home in the near future. So what would this look like? Well, it is important to note that businesses are not giving away cannabis to their employees or encouraging them to smoke marijauna. Instead, it is seen more as a way to accept the fact that so many people are using marijaua anyways, companies might as well offer some guidelines to abide by for using cannabis while working. Employers also would not encourage types of marijauana consumption that has significantly worse health risks for its employees, like smoking or vaping marijuana.

What’s the Deal With Psychedelic Cannabis?

Medical marijuana has continued to become more acceptable across the United States as a form of treatment for individuals struggling with various conditions, including chronic pain and other physical or mental ailments. However, many of the strains of cannabis that are available for legal purchase are non psychedelic. What does this mean?

Well, psychedelic cannabis refers to the way that marijuana can make you feel ‘high’ in a more traditional sense. It is true that different types of marijuana strains have very different effects, which is actually a super good thing. Some strains are perfect for dealing with chronic pain, while others are more apt for addressing anxiety or depression. The important thing to keep in mind is that not all strains are good at all times. Some can do more harm than good if not taken carefully or in the wrong environment.

After all, these are drugs we are talking about here people! Anyways, I wanted to spend some time today to talk about the effects of psychedelic cannabis and give you some more information about what makes it that way. Whether you are seeking to get your hands on some more psychedelic strains of cannabis, or avoid them, you are in the right place!

So for those who don’t  know what makes a cannabis strain psychedelic, I am going to inform you right now. All cannabis (usually) makes you high. However, the experience that you can feel depends greatly on the type of cannabis plant that was consumed. For example, sativa cannabis is a type of plant that can bring feelings of energy, happiness, alertness, and even creativity. Other strains like indica make you tired, ease pain, and address personal stress or anxiety.

Either way, there is a type of cannabis that is best suited for different uses and different individuals. So what are some of the effects of common cannabis strains that would be considered more psychedelic? Well, as we have talked about before, it can be hard to determine just how someone will react to cannabis, as each person is unique in their brain function and bodily responses. However, we can provide you with some of the common effects that psychedelic cannabis users experience regularly when consuming these strains. These things can depend on age, weight, tolerance levels, and a lot of other factors. 

One of the most common reported symptoms of psychedelic cannabis is a shift in the time-space continuum. What does this mean? Basically, there is an altered sense of time and expense that you may experience when taking cannabis. Time may feel more frozen, or perhaps you feel like things have completely stopped. In my opinion, this is probably the most sought-after effect of psychedelic cannabis.

Who doesn’t want to feel like a time traveler for a little bit? Another effect of cannabis is reduced motor function, where your body just doesn’t seem to be moving in the way that you would like to. If you have regularly consumed marijuana in your lifetime, there is a high chance that you have experienced this effect of cannabis.

However, it is true that there can be some unwelcome effects from consuming psychedelic cannabis, specifically dealing with a very dry mouth or nausea. This is what we in the business would call a bad time.

No one wants to feel like they need to drink out of the five great lakes, or make an emergency trip to the toilet. Some psychedelic strains of cannabis can be notorious for causing these above symptoms. The last thing that I want to say is that you should always be careful when consuming psychedelic cannabis or any other drug.

Why Cannabis is a Great Alternative to Opioids 

The modern day United States is currently facing a crisis. No, I’m talking about the national debt crisis or the social security crisis (but we should be, right?). Instead, I am talking about the opioid addiction crisis that many Americans are grappling with on a daily basis. In fact, it is written that, in 2020, drug overdose deaths in the United States hit a record high of more than 96,000. Honestly, a number that large is extremely hard to process.

Not only is it something that money people see from a day to day basis, but opioid related deaths are almost always preventable. Not to mention, the rate at which people are overdosing continues to climb in this country. So what can be done about it? To start, many people are rallying around the idea of looser laws around medical and recreational marijuana.

It is becoming more and more evident that opioid medications are not working for a lot of people, especially in long term use. There is a high potential for addiction and mental health collapse, as well as many physical side effects that these opiates can create. There is also an inherent risk of overdose for people who are really struggling. Opioids have been getting a lot of heat in the media, but I still don’t think that it’s enough. Of those 96,000 deaths related to opioid overdose in 2020, how many could have been prevented if medical marijuana was used as a substitute? I firmly believe that it would have been a lot more.

This fact is backed by scientific evidence; medical marijuana is more effective for pain relief. Over time, opioids can become less effective at dealing with people’s pain. However, there are several things that we know about how cannabis can deal with pain. Because chronic pain can come from more than one location in the body, it is true that marijuana could be more effective than regular pain medications and opioids.

Not to mention, there are way less adverse side effects when consuming cannabis in any form, especially when compared to recent opioid related death numbers. When comparing cannabis to other forms of pain medication, cannabis is more effective at targeting various nerves throughout the whole body. Because the body can feel chronic pain in more than one location, it makes sense that cannabinoids are naturally better at keeping nerves from firing off pain messages to report to the brain. 

Some doctors and other medical professionals are suggesting that cannabis could disrupt the pharmaceutical industry. This doesn’t sound like such a bad thing to me. Big pharmaceutical companies have been taking advantage of regular people for far too long, and a lot of these companies have existed by going under the radar in their unethical practices. Do we really need opioids to control chronic pain and other conditions? Is it possible that cannabis could be a substitute for these medications? Possibly. We are beginning to see more into the effects of marijuana as a medical treatment now that it is becoming legalized all over the United States.

Cannabis becoming a frontline drug for battling pain instead of opioids could potentially save lives and prevent crippling addictions from taking place. I am personally on board with destroying the opioid industry, especially given all the information we have that suggest how terrible opioids can be to the human body and mind. Cannabis can even work in tandem with different drugs, which could offer a better solution for dealing with pain than getting addicted to other drugs like opiates. 

Cannabis and Your Senses 

Cannabis is something that helps you perceive just how much of the world is right there around where you are.  It can definitely be something that changes the way that you feel, and it can make even just enjoy foods on a whole different levels. 

For those who are interested in cannabis, they may learn something new when you activate the senses. Here, we’ll go over how, and what cannabis can do to make them better than ever. 

Why the Senses Matter  

Senses basically let us experience the world around us in different ways. Our brain is already pretty complex, and we build a whole bunch of different areas around us, and our senses provide a bunch of tasks that are there. It’s something that offers us a chance to protect our body, gets us food, and it also is used to reproduce. 

Humans offer five senses, and they are there for us to use. Our brain sits in fluid within our cranium, and the organs relay to systems to behave and also react in proper manners. Every single one of the sensory organs that are ther also works with other organs too, and it’s something that we’ll use to get different receptors, reacting to different stimuli. 

How cannabis can affect the senses 

It affects them a wide variety of different ways. For taste for example, cannabis makes food taste even better, offering new senses and flavors to absolute amazing levels, and it can be something that creates the munchies in many, especially when they’re high. Cannabis, however, does have a direct effect on the taste receptors, and it’s also something that doesn’t have impact on the way things taste either. 

As for touch, touch plays a big part in this.  It is something that does still need a bit of research, but it’s something that is present.  Right now, there’s only a few studies here and there and some participants did say that the herb did make their touch sensitivity increase. 

Some people when they smoke mention that their hearing is a bit heightened, which can happen. the plant does let listeners pick up minute details, and everything is much more significant and vibrant too. However, some people may find that THC does dampen the music effects on certain brain regions, which is where the entourage effect comes in with CBD. CBD also can help increase the dopamine, and with music, it can be good. 

Sight is another area. Some mention that it helps with night vision, and there were some findings that showed that it can improve the sensitivity and contrast, three-dimensional vision and eye focus. Then there is smell. You may notice that your smell does change, especially with high amounts of this. It can sometimes also reduce the olfactory senses as well, especially if it’s immediately after having a dosage. 

Some people they may experience all of this, some of it at all. Cannabis is great for those who want to appreciate the way that food tastes, and also reduces the olfactory and visuals in some people as well. Some people also may notice that CBD weed does impact the way we appreciate music. However, this is something that’s still getting a lot of updates, since it’s still much too early about the cannabis effects on the body and the like. It’s something that  even though we’re still learning about it, there is a lot to take in, and we may learn that there are certain things we enjoy much more that we’ve had some weed, and it can change our perspective too. 

Why Do People Use Medical Marijuana?

If you are new to the world of medical marijuana, then you may feel a little bit overwhelmed when confronting the sheer amount of knowledge and complications that one must understand when working in this industry. The number of products available combined with the intricacies of state policies in the United States can make the whole thing very complicated. However, today we are going to be talking about why people use medical marijuana. The first thing that might come to your mind when I mention using medical cannabis is treating chronic pain. Now, this is definitely one of the most common uses for using medical marijuana. Chronic pain can be described as any form of pain that lasts for three months or more.

It can happen from day to day or a few times a week. Chronic pain is a huge problem for a lot of people in the United States, so much so that it is commonly listed on all sorts of different medical marijuana programs across the nation. However, there are many other qualifying conditions for using medical marijuana, and some of them you may not have heard of before. Today we are going to be talking about other types of uses for medical marijuana besides chronic pain, and hopefully we can begin to see more states in the United States accept other forms of pain and disease for using medical marijuana. So make sure to keep reading!

Other than chronic pain, medical marijuana is also commonml;y used to treat things like PTSD, cancer, and anxiety. PTSD is one of the first forms of mental health illness that was treated by using marijuana, and PTSD dates back to the start of mankind. PTSD stands for post-traumatic stress disorder, and it is a disorder that occurs in patients that have undergone some severe traumatic event.

Though the concept of PTSD is not completely understood, we do know that people that suffer from PTSD are unable to successfully process these traumatic events in a way that significantly impacts their mental health and wellbeing. This form of mental health disorder is commonly found among United States veterans who have fought in a war and seen some terrible things. Interestingly, PTSD is the most-stated reason to use medical marijuana in the state of Connecticut, perhaps because this is the state with the highest population of veterans. Anxiety is also a very common disorder among the American public, especially generalized anxiety and social anxiety. Many Americans use medical marijuna to treat these conditions, as it can help in de stressing and also relaxing. Cancer patients have also begun to use medical cannabis to treat pain and nausea related to chemotherapy, which is a type of cancer treatment that can be very hard on the body. Basically, medical marijuana belongs in healthcare as an alternative to over the counter medications as well as prescription medications.

When it comes to using medical marijuana, the important thing to keep in mind is that the laws differ from state to state. Some states only allow patients to use cannabis under very strict guidelines that do not allow certains strains and certain types of products. Other states are much more lenient about what they will allow, and a very select few states will let any adult over the age of 21 use marijuana for recreational purposes. If you are dealing with a chronic health condition, whether mental or physical, it could be worth talking to your doctor about applying for your own medical marijuana card or something like that. I hope that this was helpful!

Why Is Iowa Trying to Talk About Cannabis With the FDA

If you have any bit of information about the state of medical marijuana programs in the United States today, then you are probably well aware of the great disparity of medical marijuana quality from state to state. In more simple terms, some states have great medical marijuana programs, while other states’ programs are abysmal. Some states have taken the time and effort to make their medical marijuana programs very easy for patients to qualify – they have added all sorts of health conditions, both mental and physical, that can be used to apply for and obtain a medical marijuana card.

They have also made it easier for cannabis cultivators, manufacturers, licensers, and growers to actually sell and provide the cannabis to the medical marijuana patients across the state through various dispensaries. Then you have other states that have fought tooth and nail against the legalization of cannabis for a variety of reasons. A lot of it comes down to the traditional stigma that more conservative states hold against cannabis, even though they are completely ignoring all of the great health benefits that can come from using cannabis. Today we are going to be talking about the state of Iowa. I know – super exciting topic right? Well, Iowa has been one of those states that has been super cautious when it comes to legalizing medical marijuana. However, eventually this state gave way to coming up with a medical marijuana program that can help people with certain conditions. Now the state faces an entirely new question concerning the legalization of adult-use cannabis. There are currently 18 states in our country that have legalized adult use of cannabis, which basically allows anyone over the age of 21 to legally purchase and consume cannabis without a medical marijuana card. At the end of 2021, the state of Iowa received word from the FDA that consented to the legalization of adult use. What does this mean? Well it could mean that we will see adults able to use marijuana in the state of Iowa this year.

Many of the states that have been slow to legalize medical marijuana have medical programs that are very restrictive in nature, meaning that there are not a lot of health conditions that qualify for using a medical card. Compared to a lot of other conservative states, however, Iowa’s medical program is quite substantial. Among the list of qualifying conditions you can find chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s disease, AIDS and HIV, Parkinson’s disease, Ulcerative colitis, PTSD, seizures, and many more. In order to actually obtain a medical marijiuana card in Iowa, patients must have been diagnosed with one of the conditions on their state’s medical program. The good news for many patients in Iowa is that there is no longer a low-THC cap on cannabis products in the state.

While the types of cannabis products in Iowa are somewhat limited, including capsules, tinctures, creams, lotions, and now vape cartridges, at least there is no longer a low cap on marijuana that needs to be high in THC to actually treat certain medical conditions.  Among other things, it is important to keep in mind just how much people are relying on the THC in their cannabis to treat their pain or anxiety symptoms. If you have ever known someone with chronic pain, then you know that the pain can show up and be very severe in almost an instant. It is super important for medical marijuana patients in the state of Iowa to have better access to cannabis that can actually work quickly and effectively.

Understanding Craft Cannabis

The legalization of cannabis has been a very long debate spanning several decades. However, in the last decade, several authorities have legalized the use of this drug for different purposes. A drug that was once shunned by many is currently being used by people for therapeutic, recreational, and medicinal reasons. With the legalization of cannabis in various parts of the world, vendors and producers have come up with creative ways to make the drug accessible to customers, one of which is craft cannabis. 

To perfect craft cannabis, breeders and growers have been developing new techniques to help them perfect new strains of cannabis featuring enhanced attributes. This article is designed to help weed lovers understand more about craft cannabis. 

What you Need to Know About Craft Cannabis

Craft cannabis is usually a small-scale operation similar to that of craft beer and other craft products. These operations are usually kept on a smaller scale to ensure quality. Aside from maintaining quality, these weed growers are also focused on maintaining natural and organic practices while reducing their impact on the environment. 

To perfect their strain, craft cannabis growers start from the seed, developing high-quality varieties by harvesting only the good from the original strain. They then follow a delicate curing process that involves a slow and steady process of drying to enhance potency. Despite craft cannabis being centered on the flower, the concept behind it extends to edibles, consumables, smokeable, and concentrates. 

The History of Craft Cannabis

Most people may not be aware of the concept behind craft weed. However, this practice has been with us for several generations. The concept of craft cannabis can be traced to Guadalest in Spain. During those ties, farmers employed eco-friendly methods to nurture and grow their crops. For example, farmers used natural pest control methods to deal with pests. To protect their animals from wild animals and trespassers, the farmers surrounded their crops with bells attached to strings. These bells would then ring in case an intruder tries to access the farm. It’s the farmers from Guadalest who are credited with the production of the critical strain, the very first craft cannabis variants. 

The farming methods used by these farmers would then extend to other borders reaching California. Craft cannabis growers in California are believed to produce some of the best quality strains. This is mainly because of the freedom and space to grow quality weed under specific guidelines. 

Pros and Cons of Craft Cannabis

Despite the intricate processes followed to develop craft cannabis, there are pros and cons that growers need to weigh before trying it out. 

Pros of Craft Cannabis

Quality control– most growers manage small operations that give them greater control in terms of production and quality control. 

Preservation of trichomes– a small operation means the grower trims the buds by hand. This way, they can preserve the trichomes containing cannabinoids and terpenes. 

Supports small businesses– enables you to run a small weed business. 

Sustainable practices- craft cannabis growers don’t need tons of water or electricity to nurture their crops. This makes the practice sustainable and environmentally friendly. 

Cons of Craft Cannabis

Complicated and expensive process– finding the right strain takes a while needing the grower to invest some cash.

Higher price point– due to the delicate process used to make craft cannabis, the growers tend to increase the charges on their produce. 

Lack of regulation– there are little to no regulations on craft cannabis; as a result, breeders and growers are forced to pay a lot of money to enter the market. 

Will Craft Cannabis be as popular as Craft Beer?

Most consumers tend to move towards products that guarantee top quality. In the case of craft beer, the product attracted many people because of its local production and unique taste. Like beer lovers, herb lovers also enjoy products of high quality. Despite the high prices charged by craft cannabis growers, customers are increasingly opting for this strain over regular weed. To answer the question, yes, craft cannabis will eventually become popular. All it needs is time. 

What‌ ‌You‌ ‌Need‌ ‌to‌ ‌Know‌ ‌About‌ ‌Edibles‌ ‌

One of the greatest parts about using medical marijuana is that you are not tied to one method of consuming it. When most people think of using cannabis, their mind probably wonders about the idea of smokable marijuana that has become so common and popular. However, this is not the extent of what you can do with cannabis today.

In fact, with medical marijuana being more accessible in the United States than it ever has been before, there has never been such a wide variety of products available to recreational consumers and medical patients alike. If you are someone who is wanting to learn more about the marijuana industry in the United States but are not quite sure where to start, my suggestion to you would be edibles. Edibles have been a known cannabis product for quite some time, but the newer edibles that one might fight on a dispensary shelf today look much different than your stereotypical ‘pot brownie’ and other old-fashioned edibles.

THC and CBD-infused edibles have become very safe, affordable, and diverse in our modern cannabis market. Today I am writing this article as a beginner’s guide to cannabis edibles so that you can know everything you need to in order to get started yourself. I hope that you find this article helpful and inspiring. Make sure to keep reading to figure out what you need to know about all things related to weed and marijuana edibles. 

One of the reasons that people have come to love edibles so much is because of their portability and their discreteness. You can throw a bag of THC gummies in your backpack or purse and pop one in your mouth without anyone ever noticing. That is much different than having to go to the bathroom to light up a joint and smoke weed. However, some people are concerned that, when they open up a bag of edibles in a public setting, they might cause the whole room to smell like weed. While I completely understand someone having this fear, it is important to note that this would probably not happen. Most of the edibles like gummies, lozenges, gums do not have a strong cannabis scent. If you get into the super high quality edibles, you can find some that do not smell great but also don’t even taste like weed. Some lower quality edibles products may have a weed type taste to them, but hey, you get what you pay for I suppose. One thing to keep in mind is that, depending on the type of cannabis edible you use, you may have some weed smell on your breath that others can detect. In order to prevent this, make sure you have mints or gum to follow up with cannabis infused gummy with.

Another common question that people wonder about using edibles is the time it takes to feel it’s effects, and how long it lasts. If you are used to smoking cannabis, then you may be a bit disappointed the first time you try edibles. Smokable cannabis often catives right away, within the first few minutes of smoking it. However, edibles can take much longer to actually kick in. Like anything else dealing with marijuana strains and products, the effects differ depending on the type of edible you take. In most cases, it will take an average of 30 to 45 minutes before you actually feel the effect of the edible. If you are wanting to speed up this process, one thing that you can do is eat some fatty foods about 5 to 10 minutes after consuming a THC-infused edible, since some experts are saying that this helps in absorbing the chemicals more quickly.
