Is Cannabis Edible?
While cannabis is pretty far from being one of your fruits and vegetables found on the food pyramid, the cannabis flower is edible. However, if you eat it raw, you will not quite experience the same effects as if it were cooked into something you will find at a local Las Vegas dispensary. In fact, cannabis is closer to an herb, like oregano than it is to a fruit or vegetable. This is due to a high concentration of terpenes that give it its flavor, much like herbs you use to cook.
There’s an important method to properly process cannabis buds into usable flower. Our favorite edibles Las Vegas offers, like the ones produced by OMG THC, get their kick from a process called decarboxylation. During the decarbing process, we expose raw cannabis containing tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) to various heats. The result? The well-known and much-beloved substance tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THCA will not get give you the same effects as you are used to until it is “decarbed.” Furthermore, depending on the exposure to different temperatures and cooking times, other chemicals may overpower the THC. In fact, they may overtake it completely. In other words, it’s important to keep an eye on your cannabis and know what you’re doing.
The Benefits of the Edibles Las Vegas Dispensaries Offer
Cannabis has many purported health benefits that even some state governments have admitted to or endorsed. This news is not new by any means because cannabis has been used for the treatment of various ailments for centuries. Millennia, in fact. Medical cannabis products can be legally prescribed by doctors in countries all around the world, including in the United States. Due to both scientific research and word of mouth, cannabis is widely used to treat conditions such as chronic pain, cancer-related symptoms, and anxiety.
THC is only one of over 100 unique components of cannabis, but it is solely responsible for the intoxicating effects of the plant. It is also the THC that causes the intoxicating effects of cannabis edibles. Researchers believe that THC is also responsible for the pain-relieving effects of cannabis as well. Other compounds in cannabis, such as CBD, are non-intoxicating. Some studies even show CBD may have anxiety-reducing or anti-inflammatory properties. (Jaseena Elikottil, 2009)
Edible cannabis products have been used for medical purposes as mainstream treatments for muscle spasms, to relieve nausea, and as sleep aids. In fact, I’ve used CBD myself almost exclusively to treat my spinal injuries for nearly 4 years now. And I was in an opiate pain management clinic for years before access to CBD mainstreamed. Additionally, I enjoy Experience Premium Cannabis’ Good Night CBN tincture when I’m looking to get a good night’s rest. There are even large pharmaceutical companies manufacturing edibles, such as Sativex, with is a mouth spray that contains THC and CBD.
Cautionary Advice for Using Edibles
Whenever you have something great, there are always going to be those people who are going to try to ruin it. Our edibles Las Vegas are some of the bests on the market, and as we have seen, they also offer great health benefits. However, whenever you are using edibles, you have to always follow one important rule.
The Rule: Start Slow
When cannabis is smoked, the THC will reach your brain and take effect within just a few short minutes. You pretty much know what you are in for within 10 minutes, and you can decide to have a few more puffs or decide that you are good and enjoy the high.
When you are eating products that contain THC, the psychoactive effects usually will take anywhere between 30 to 90 minutes to kick in. Also, the effects last a great deal longer than they do if you smoke. Edibles usually last around 4 to 6 hours depending on your metabolism and how much you ingested.
This creates an issue for people who are not experienced in how edibles will affect them. A lot of people, let’s call them “rookies,” will eat some edibles then figure that they were not enough, or too weak after 20 minutes or so, and eat more. Before these rookies know it, they are glued to the couch and are panicking because they can barely function. Anxiety, paranoia, and loss of motor function are common when someone eats too many edibles.
How to Enjoy Edibles Safely and Legally
Many of our customers love enjoying a nice gummy or one of our chocolate-covered treats after a long day’s work. They are a great way to relax and ease the stress of the day. Just like everything out there you can abuse edibles and use them in an unsafe manner.
Most edibles you will get at a dispensary, specifically our edibles Las Vegas licensed dispensaries. At least if you’re goal is to obtain them legally. Per Nevada law, they will contain 10mg of THC per serving so you will be able to control how much you are eating. If you dose appropriately, you will be able to reap the relaxing benefits that make our edibles so popular. On another note, if you’re a medical cannabis cardholder, you have access to purchase our 500mg medical edition chocolate bars.
Things to Keep in Mind about Cannabis Edibles Legality
Keep in mind that even if recreational marijuana use is legal in your State, it is still classified as a schedule 1 controlled substance by the federal government and illegal, due to its alleged “high potential for abuse” and “no currently accepted medical use.”
Scientists and researchers have disagreed with this classification repeatedly, especially those who have done the research into its medicinal benefits. Due to cannabis’s classification researchers are only allowed to use cannabis grown by the federal government. Of course, this makes legal research difficult. Some argue that the current legal status is outdated and “thwarts legitimate research”. However, exploring the potential of cannabis use in the medical field appears to be coming back in vogue. (The Health Effects of Cannabis and Cannabinoids: The Current State of Evidence and Recommendations for Research, 2017).
We hope we have provided you with some good information so that you can enjoy our premium, top-quality edibles safely and legally. If used correctly edibles can be an effective treatment for all kinds of ailments. They are also great to just help you relax after a long day.
