Medical vs Retail Cannabis Edibles
Cannabis edibles are a great way for many people to enjoy the benefits that cannabis has to offer. For those who don't partake in the smoking or vaping lifestyle consuming cannabis edibles can be essential for them to receive valuable Phytocannabinoids. Cannabis edibles are available on both the retail/recreational and medical sides of the cannabis market.
The average retail cannabis dispensary offers 100 mg cannabis edibles to the public 21 and up with a valid state-issued ID. Medical dispensaries however, are a little bit different. In Colorado, for example, you can get a chocolate bar called FUBAR that is 420 mg of THC. You can also get gummy like candies called Pucks that come in 250mg containers with 10 pieces, each with 25 mg of THC.
Pucks come in fruit flavors like cherry, watermelon, strawberry, and assorted. They are a little bit different than other edibles as they use a method in making them called Nano-extraction. A 25 mg Puck may hit you much faster than what you would expect. A new consumer might feel a little too relaxed and end up taking a nap consuming one of these whereas a seasoned consumer will want to eat all 10.
Always be vigilant and careful when consuming cannabis edibles. The best advice is to try them when you have some downtime, so you will know how they affect you. Enjoy your cannabis edibles and always remember to keep them out of the reach of children and pets.
