Cannabis-infused edibles are a tasty way to consume THC on Cape Cod, whether you’re at the beach, seeing an art gallery, or just at home edibles can serve as a fun alternative to smoking, vaping, and using tinctures. They’ are a great option if you’re new to cannabis or don’t like the traditional taste and smell of marijuana. At Hennep in Provincetown, our edibles are a big step up from your college roommate’s homemade “special” brownies. All the cannabis edibles we carry at our recreational dispensary undergo strict testing to ensure quality and accurate potency.
To make treats, cannabis is typically infused into a fat-soluble medium like butter or oil. Before infusion, the cannabis must be “decarboxylated” to activate the compounds and prepare them for absorption in the body. This process is also referred to as cannabis “activation,” and it occurs using low-temperature heat. Once activated, the canna-butter or canna-oil infusion is then added as a measured ingredient to treats like:
Cannabis edibles are consumed by mouth and processed (metabolized) in your stomach and liver. In comparison, smoked or vaped cannabis enters your lungs and is absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Inhaling means you feel the effects faster, but they’re shorter-lived.
The effects of edibles often take longer to feel. This is because the cannabis compounds must travel with the digested food through the metabolic process. Once it arrives in the bloodstream, the impact is more potent and lasts longer.
It’s important to be aware of how much you’ve ingested. Don’t make the mistake of taking more too soon. When you consume more too soon, you may feel greater effects than you anticipated.
The knowledgeable budtenders at our Provincetown dispensary are more than happy to make suggestions on how to use edibles.
“Potency” describes the strength of the edible. It’s calculated by measuring how many milligrams of THC or CBD are present. In some situations, other relevant cannabinoids may also be listed.
Some cannabis edibles we sell can contain up to 5mg of THC, while others may have as little as 1mg. It’s important to read the product label to ensure you’re getting the right amount of THC for you.
It’s also important to understand the serving size of each treat. You might buy a full size chocolate bar, but the appropriate amount to eat may only be one or two pieces. Keep your tolerance level in mind.
Cannabis edibles contain the same beneficial properties as other methods of intake, such as:
Here are some specific reasons you may choose an edible over another product like a pre-roll:
Everyone eats and drinks, but not everyone smokes or vapes. Cannabis edibles are a familiar method of intake that can make the experience of enjoying cannabis more comfortable.
Cannabis edibles have no annoying smell and you don’t need any equipment or accessories to enjoy them. Many can even fit in your pocket or purse.
Because of stringent testing protocol, cannabis edibles are accurately dosed so you know exactly what you’re getting. This way you have more control over your experience.
Though cannabis edibles could take longer to “kick in,” the effects typically last longer than other methods of consumption.
Not everyone wants or is able to inhale cannabis. Edibles are a friendly alternative.
