Edibles are an ever-expanding category of cannabis-infused food and drinks. The iconic pot brownie is a classic example, but today you can also find mints, chocolates, sodas, and more. Because your digestive system processes edibles differently than your lungs process smoke or vapor, the effects kick in much later (sometimes up to two hours after consuming) and can last for several hours depending on the amount consumed. As the saying goes, "start low and go slow." New cannabis consumers should begin with a 5mg dose of THC and wait at least two hours before taking more.
