Cannabis edibles are a wonderful solution for those who don't want to (or can't for health reasons) experience any of the negative side effects that may come with smoking and vaping. But edibles are classically known as desserts like brownies and cookies. What if you're on a gluten-free, sugar-free, or vegan diet? Are there edibles that fit your dietary lifestyle? Yes, yes, there are... But first, here is a quick rundown on recreational edible consumption in Colorado.

Edible Consumption

If you're new to recreational edibles, you're about to discover a whole new world. In Colorado, the law requires a single dose of edibles to be 10mg of THC or less. We recommend starting with a low dose of 5mg or less, waiting for it to kick in, then decide if you want to take more. Why? Edibles affect everyone in a different way, and they can last much longer than smoking or vaping. Remember, you can always take more, but you can't take less.

How long do edibles take to kick in, and how long do they last?

It can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to feel the effects of an edible. Since THC is fat-soluble, taking an edible alongside a food product that is high in fats may result in a quicker, more potent, and full-ranged effect.

Scientists have foundfactors like diet, metabolism, and weightcan affect the length of time people feel high after ingesting cannabis. But generally, the experience can last between four and six hours.

How does an edible high feel?

Unlike smoking or vaping, edibles are a different kind of high. The experience is typically a relaxing body-buzz paired with a cerebral head high, and depending on your metabolism, edibles may or may not make you sleepy.
