If you’re one that prefers to enjoy the highs and lows of cannabis in a discreet way, then edibles are perfect for you. Edibles offer a different way to appreciate all that cannabis can offer through ingestion rather than the traditional way of smoking. One major difference between edibles and smoking is it takes longer for the THC to be absorbed into the bloodstream, around 20 to 30 minutes, but its effects last longer, more than the usual two to three hours when it’s smoked. A helpful tip for people taking in edibles is to pay attention to the dosage. Around 10 to 20 milligrams is recommended for newbies even if you’re used to smoking cannabis. Many users often take smaller dosages of 3 or 5 milligrams in order to achieve a milder effect.
