Marijuana Candies

With the public becoming more aware of medical marijuana, it is not at all surprising to see just how the cannabis industry is thriving. Together with more accepting and lenient state laws, it cannot be denied that the cannabis industry has taken the world by storm. Aside from consuming marijuana in the traditional way, there are now more interesting and exciting methods of ingesting this plant.

In the industry, there are various CBD edibles designed to cater to a variety of individuals. Aside from the usual brownies, cookies, and drinks, perhaps one of the most in-demand cannabis edibles produced is called ‘marijuana candy.’ These come in the form of gummies, chocolates, and even suckers!

What is marijuana candy?

For those still navigating the field of cannabis, marijuana candy is a type of food item which has been infused with cannabidiol (CBD).

What is the ideal starting point when ingesting these food products?

According to the Marijuana Policy Project, the typical starting dosage for these edibles is 5 milligrams for new consumers, an amount that should be easily ingested, and 10 milligrams for users who have a low tolerance for these products. As these food products are infused with a certain concentration of marijuana oils, consumers should be mindful that overconsumption is possible.

To help you find your way in this industry, below are some guidelines you should bear in mind:

Do Research on CBD Oil

Know that consuming cannabis through these food items is radically different from smoking it or taking it in other forms. For one, it can give you a much higher hit compared to smoking. Edibles tend to hit the user at around the 90-minute mark, giving the individual a high for around three to four hours. By conducting thorough research, in advance, you will know what you’re in for and what to expect. Not to mention, you’ll know what dosage to start with and where you can purchase these marijuana candies.

Start Small Dosage of CBD or THC

If you are still unsure about edibles and what it can do for your body, be sure to start with a smaller dosage. If you have done your research, you’ll know that it is highly advisable to work out your dosage but, it’s always advisable, to start with a small dosage.

For example, consider consuming products that only have 5 to 10 milligrams of THC. Medicated gummy bears or candies tend to be packaged in bags which have a serving of between 10 and 25 pieces. These serving indications will give you a good idea of what you should consume and how long the effects can be expected to last. If you are not the average smoker or not an experienced user, you may want to start off with one piece.

Just remember to keep the package away from other similar-looking food items in your house. This way, you can avoid children and pets from accidentally snacking on your marijuana candy.

Be Patient

The waiting period can be the most frustrating part, but in just a short while, you can experience the benefits of these medicated candies. Unlike smoking marijuana, the ‘high’ that comes from consuming edibles can take a little longer. In fact, once ingested it could take anywhere from 90 minutes to two hours to take effect.  Just be patient.

Relax and Enjoy the Cannabis Experience

Once you start feeling the effects of the marijuana, be sure to relax and enjoy your experience in a safe space, together with friends and other like-minded individuals you can trust.

Now that you know a lot more about marijuana candy, it might just open your eyes to new beginnings. Aside from experiencing the medicinal and therapeutic properties, you will certainly enjoy eating these goodies too.
