420 with CNW — How to Select, Buy Marijuana Edibles Like an Expert

November 4, 2020 03:25:43

If you have no experience with edibles, you can be easily overwhelmed if you have to purchase some. In the United States, all types of dosages and types of edibles are available, and a bad purchase may lead to bad highs. Despite this, some marijuana users enjoy edibles so much that they choose edibles over all other cannabis consumption methods. Some people assert that edibles are healthier than smoking and vaping with regard to the lungs, plus they produce stronger results. Edibles may also induce a stronger response in the mind or body as well as potentially provide more pain relief.

Still, one can be easily intimidated by edibles. Here are a few basics that a new user should know to help make informed purchasing decisions.

Extracts vs. Cannabutter

You can infuse your food using marijuana in various ways, mainly with extracts and cannabutter. When oil or butter is infused with cannabis, cannabutter is produced. This mixture can then be used to make chocolates, brownies, and more. Cannabutter encompasses the limitations and benefits of the cannabis flower, which provides the consumer with the complete spectrum of cannabinoids. This means edibles made using cannabutter have CBD, THC and more, which results in unpredictable effects.

In contrast, edibles made using extracts are more targeted. Edible makers can isolate CBD or THC in a lab, and add them to edibles later. This allows these manufacturers to make products that are more consistent and reliable. For individuals who have a specific effect in mind, edibles made with extracts are a good option.

To buy or to make?

If you’re new to edibles, then your best option would be to purchase edibles. However, if you would prefer to make your own edibles, it’s vital that you find a recipe that suits you and stick to it. It is important to note that the entire process will take some time, and that your marijuana  harvest must be decarboxylated.

You should also keep in mind that because you’ll be consuming marijuana through your stomach, there may be a delayed response. Therefore, it’s important to be patient and pace yourself. Avoid consuming more edibles because you aren’t feeling the high yet. It takes a while, but it will come.


Additionally, the taste depends on the edible. Edibles made with extracts usually taste less like weed as compared to those prepared with cannabutter. To make sure what you get is what you prefer, you can ask your budtender to explain in detail the contents of your edible.

One interesting company worthy of giving some attention to is The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (NASDAQ: WTER) (CSE: WTER). The company was initially set up to produce the best-tasting enhanced water, and WTER has now branched out into making broad and full-spectrum, hemp-infused products.
