Around 30 years ago or so, the term edible was only known as the term used for whether a food was good to eat to not cause food poisoning. The term edible has since transformed to refer to food that has weed in it which works just as much.
In formal weed-speak, however, this refers to any food or beverage infused with a combination of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). A few years ago, this meant brownies with premium cannabis and the occasional cookie.
Today, there are as much cannabis-infused food creations as there as there are magic mushroom strains in British Columbia. But it doesn’t stop with all these wonderful varieties and flavors, here are among the best reasons you should try eating edibles:
- Edibles will not get you high
…unless you want it, too. It’s one, if not the key reason, for people not wanting to try edibles.
The secret lies in the preparation. As long as you do not expose the primary psychoactive chemical in cannabis that is THC to heat and leave it unaged and raw, you can’t produce THC. What you have in your hands is THCA, which isn’t psychoactive at all.
So, weed-infused mac ‘n cheese, soups, stews, and baking goods shouldn’t get you high so long as you prepare it this way.
- Cannabis leaves are nutritious
You read that right. In particular, cannabis leaves are excellent sources of fiber and certain vitamins and minerals. They are still plants, after all, and green and leafy at that. They are also rich in antioxidants which are good for your skin and protects you from stress and free radicals as well as everyday environmental damage.
- Consuming edibles is healthier than smoking
You only need to type out smoking in your search bar to know just how many harmful risks you’re getting with the stick of death. Cooking, however, doesn’t, so you skip the zero carcinogens that are harmful to your lungs and take in the good stuff.
- Edibles can help with nausea
If you are prone to nausea and vomiting when you get sick or due to an operation or, if you’re nearing your period, then you may want to try eating edibles to curb them. This is due to the ‘manipulation of the endocannabinoid system’ according to one study from the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada.
