How Edibles Are Made
Marijuana edibles are any food substances that are infused with marijuana. This can be a pizza, a brownie, a cake, or even a beverage such as a tea or soda. Many edibles are made using a weed butter sort of substance, in which the strain is broken down and placed in an oven until is lightly toasted. This is then put in a blender to be broken down. After that, you take butter and water and bring them to a boil, adding the marijuana once it is there. Once it thickens, you have your weed butter and you can use it a variety of different dishes. At Budderweeds, we use solventless, triple distilled CO2 cannabis oil to make our edibles.
Effects of Edibles
Eating marijuana edibles has similar effects to smoking weed, but they are not exactly the same and the turnaround time is vastly different. When you smoke, you can feel the effects almost immediately, but that is not the case with edibles. Edibles usually take about 60 to 90 minutes to take full effect. Once they kick in, however, you are in for quite a ride. The effects are often far more intense, and they last for 4 to 12 hours depending on the dosage. You may be more talkative, perceptive, and relaxed. Some people say it is closer to a psychedelic experience than just smoking weed, while others report that it’s just a longer-lasting, more intense high. It will be different from person to person, but as long as you don’t overdo it, you are bound to have some positive effects and enjoy a nice high.
