Cannabis drinks and cannabis edibles are a great solution for consumers who need to discretely partake of marijuana. However, these types of cannabis products require some considerations. One of the most important aspects to examine before purchasing and using these products are their potencies and activation times.
Cannabis drinks are available in a variety of forms, including beer, wine, soda, tea, coffee, kombucha, and water. The THC and CBC concentrations of the drinks vary based on the manufacturer and product. Consumers absorb the active chemicals both sublingually and via digestion, with the effects manifesting in around 15 minutes.
Cannabis edibles are also available in multiple forms, though cannabis edibles are often sweet snacks such as cookies, gummies, cereal bars, chocolate bars, truffles, macaroons, and suckers. Consumers absorb the active chemicals by digesting the edible. The effects of edibles are slow to activate, with the gap between consumption and the effect ranging from thirty minutes to two hours. However, the effects of edibles last much longer, with “highs” lasting from three to six hours. Edibles typically have high THC concentrations, so consumers should consider having a CBC-concentrated product available to counteract unwanted side effects from cannabis edibles.
