5 Types of Cannabis Edibles for You to Enjoy

If you’re someone who not only enjoys food but also loves cannabis, but you haven’t had an edible, you’re missing out on the opportunity of combining the best of both worlds. Or maybe you’re new to the scene and you would love a guide on how to get started and what’s out there.

Well, look no further!

At From The Earth, our cannabis dispensary shop features a huge variety of amazing, edible products, and here’s how we suggest you get started. Not all edibles are created the same, and just like they vary in flavors and categories, they also fall into one of two classifications: Indica and Sativa.

 

Know the Difference

When purchasing edibles, it’s important to know which strain you’re buying from, as they bring about two different types of highs. Sativa strains are usually infused into edibles that are supposed to be refreshing and energizing, giving you the perfect boost for outdoor activities or giving you a lift of inspiration needed to complete a task.

If you’re after a more sedating high, geared toward creating a calming, relaxing environment, you’ll want to purchase something from the Indica strain. Consuming edibles from this category will help you sleep better and help you unwind. 

 

Varying Effects

Consuming edibles create a completely different high than smoking and vaporizing. If you’re trying them for the first time, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First of all, smoking and vaporizing cannabis creates an almost instantaneous high. However, this is not the case with edibles. Due to the edible having to move through the digestive tract, any effects will take 30 minutes to two hours to start to kick in. While it takes longer to process, it also lasts longer and is a more potent high. Time and intensity will vary depending on the dose, when you ate your last meal, tolerance level, and body chemistry. 

If you’re new to edibles or have never used a particular product before, it is best to start with too little to avoid overconsumption. While you can’t overdose from cannabis, you can consume too much and make yourself uncomfortably high. 

 

1. Gummies

If you enjoyed fruity candies as a kid, then gummies are the perfect choice for you! There are many products out there that feature delicious flavors like wild berry, pineapple punch, and sour watermelon. Typically, gummies are infused with all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and fatty acids found in hemp plants. 

One of our favorite Sativa products from Kiva Confections is their pineapple habanero gummy. Made with a touch of heat, this selection is great for a summer energy boost! 

For a relaxing Indica choice, grab a pack of Kanha’s strawberry gummies. This delicious treat is sure to leave you feeling calm and collected.

2. Chocolate 

Who doesn’t love chocolate or baked goods, like brownies? Virtually any food that contains butter, oil, milk, or even sugar or flour, can be turned into an edible. To satisfy your sweet tooth and to get the added benefit of a quality high, check out these next few products.

Grab a timeless classic in the form of a milk chocolate bar from Nug. Skip the ‘weedy’ flavor and enjoy the smooth, creamy caramel taste of this delicious bar. Broken up into squares to help aid with dosing, this treat is sure to be your next favorite.

Dark chocolate fans, don’t worry! There’s something for you, too. Papa & Barkley creates a delectable sea salt bar that is soy-free, vegan-friendly, and is designed with wellness in mind, aiding in relieving occasional pain and helping you feel relaxed. 

If you can’t make a trip to your local cannabis dispensary, no worries! Remember, we offer same-day delivery as well as curbside pickup

 

3. Mints

Get a taste of something refreshing by trying cannabis mints! Mints are usually very subtle, easy to carry, and can provide a relatively quick high. If you like to enjoy edibles low-key or without drawing a lot of attention, then you should definitely pick up a package of mints.  

Kiva offers several flavors of their Petra mints, including their spicy Saigon Cinnamon, juicy pineapple, or tart cherry. Whichever one you choose, we know you’re getting a great flavor that you can enjoy on the go while refreshing your breath. 

 

4. Tinctures

Tinctures are very versatile, as they can be ingested in a number of ways. Enjoy a tincture by adding a few drops sublingually, directly under the tongue. Or, brew your favorite tea and add a little to enhance your beverage. Either way you go, you’re bound to experience a quality high.

For those seeking a medium to high psychoactive reaction, we suggest checking out the 1:30 Releaf Tincture. This product is designed to help with acute pains, aches, sleep, and overall relaxation. Paired with a mug of chamomile tea, this will be sure to give you a quality night’s rest. 

 

5. Drinks

Other than teas, cannabis-infused drinks are certainly out there! It’s summertime, and we need something delicious and refreshing to beat the heat such as lemonades, juices, and yes, even hard seltzers. These are a great choice if you want something to quench your thirst and bring you a lasting high. We can’t always smoke wherever we are, but odds are good we can enjoy a beverage.

‘Krush’ dehydration with this mango drink from Headset. Roll up to the party with something fun to share, like these original lemon seltzers from Pabst Blue Ribbon. For a potent drink option, grab a bottle of Uncle Arnie’s iced tea lemonade – but drink wisely, as these effects will be felt within 15-30 minutes! 

 

Remember!

Getting high and experiencing cannabis isn’t just one-size-fits-all anymore. It’s okay if you’re not big into smoking or vaping, or if you’re simply looking to branch out. Stop by your local cannabis dispensary to see what they have in store or to ask questions and get more information on various products. After all, our friendly staff is here to help! Just make sure you kick off your summer safely when enjoying a new edible product, and you’re sure to have a high time. 

Why It’s Important to Know the Difference Between CBD and THC

Two tinctures one says THC the other says CBD, with cannabis leaf sitting next to them on table

Two tinctures one says THC the other says CBD, with cannabis leaf sitting next to them on tableSince its widespread legalization, the rapidly growing industry of hemp and other cannabis products has raised continuous questions among consumers who plan on visiting a cannabis dispensary. As the market grows and expands, it is important to become educated, as there is still some confusion on the difference between cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) products, what they do, how they are used, how they are legally different, and what potential benefits they may have. 

CBD and THC are two natural compounds found in plants of the Cannabis genus. CBD can be extracted from hemp or cannabis, both of which come from the Cannabis sativa plant. In order to be recognized as federally legal, hemp must contain 0.3% of THC or less. CBD is non-intoxicating. It works naturally with our bodies by binding to receptors in our endocannabinoid system. Popular CBD products are sold in the forms of topicals, gummies, oils, extracts, flowers, and more. 

Gummies, such as the pomegranate gummies manufactured by From the Earth, are easy, chewable gummy tablets and can be used to provide relief for anxiety, depression, and pain.

Other products, such as the ReLeaf Balm, are a topical balm that can be applied to sore or overworked muscles and is great for providing relief from inflammation and stiffness.

The main psychoactive compound in cannabis is THC, which is responsible for producing the ‘high’ sensation when you consume cannabis. Our bodies absorb THC & CBD whether it is smoke, eaten, or applied as a topical to our skin. Cannabis legalization has opened the door to a growing list of products including oils, edibles, tinctures, capsules, topicals, drinks, and more.

At From the Earth, you can buy a variety of THC products Nighttime Tablets are a sleep aid that can help provide a good night’s rest without the groggy, hangover feeling that some over-the-counter meds can cause. 

While THC and CBD, have a few things in common, they also have some staunch differences and knowing those are essential to being a responsible consumer. 

 

CBD vs. THC: The Chemical Makeup

Though CBD and THC differ in many ways, at their core, they have the same chemical structure: 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms, and 2 oxygen atoms.  slightly adjusting how these atoms are arranged has varying effects on the body. 

Our bodies naturally produce endocannabinoids, which are molecules that help our internal functions run smoothly. Our endocannabinoid system is the bridge between body and mind, it’s what keeps our bodies in homeostasis. CBD and THC have very similar chemical makeups to our naturally occurring endocannabinoids, allowing them to interact with our cannabinoid receptors. When this interaction occurs, it triggers the release of neurotransmitters in the brain. Neurotransmitters are the chemicals responsible for sending messages between cells, and also have an effect on pain reception, immune function, sleep, stress, and more. 

 

CBD vs. THC: Psychoactive Factors

Even though they share a similar chemical structure, both CBD and THC have very different psychoactive effects. CBD is classified as psychoactive, meaning  CBD is proven to help with issues like anxiety, depression, and seizures but it doesn’t produce the same ‘high’ experience that THC does.

In order to produce a high, the THC consumed will bind the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain. However, CBD forms a very weak bond, if one ever forms at all, to these receptors. Without THC, unwanted psychoactive effects such as sedation or euphoria won’t happen. So in other words, without this bond, there is no high. 

 

CBD vs. THC: Legal Issues 

As the current situation in the United States stands, the legality of cannabis-related products is constantly changing and shifting.  36 states, 4 territories, and the District of Columbia have legalized cannabis at varying degrees for adult and medicinal use. The 2018 farm bill legalized hemp-derived CBD, this means it cannot contain more than .3% THC. Although this bill does legalize hemp-derived CBD, any CBD that was derived from a cannabis plant is still deemed illegal under federal law. 

Before purchasing any CBD products, it is important to educate yourself on your state’s laws. Should you possess cannabis-related products when they’re illegal, you could face criminal or legal repercussions. 

Currently, 33 states and the District of Columbia have ruled medical cannabis with high levels of THC legal when prescribed by a licensed physician. Some states have taken it a step further and passed laws legalizing the recreational use of cannabis.

CBD vs.THC: Potential Benefits

Due in part to their similar chemical makeup, CBD and THC share similar medical benefits as well. Some of the various health conditions CBD helps with are listed below.

 

  • Seizures
  • Inflammation
  • Pain
  • Psychosis or mental disorders 
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Nausea
  • Migraine
  • Depression
  • Anxiety 

In turn, THC helps with the following conditions:

  • Pain
  • Muscle Spasticity 
  • Glaucoma 
  • Insomnia
  • Low appetite
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety 

As indicated by their lists, they help aid with many overlapping medical conditions. However, CBD doesn’t have the aftereffect of getting high.

 

CBD vs THC: Side Effects

The consumption of any sort of chemical has a side effect. THC and CBD are no different in this regard. However, what exactly these effects entail do vary between the two. CBD is well tolerated, even when used in high dosages. 

Potential side effects of THC:

  • increased heart rate
  • coordination problems
  • dry mouth
  • red eyes
  • slower reaction times
  • Impaired thinking or concentration
  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia 

CBD side effects may include:

  • appetite changes
  • fatigue
  • weight loss
  • dizziness
  • Diarrhea

These side-effects are a direct result of the compound’s psychoactive properties. And while neither compound is fatal, excessive use of THC may have a connection to long-term psychiatric effects, especially in teens who consume the product in high amounts. 

 

Conclusion

Overall, THC and CBD infused products have designated medical benefits and are considered safe to use. But as with any drug, over-the-counter, or prescription, your medical history, and current medications should be taken into consideration prior to use. This is an important factor to ensure that you are using cannabis-based products as safely and effectively as possible. Before use, consult your doctor or physician to make sure you are using the correct and legal products.
