Guide to Marijuana Edibles

A Brief History of Edibles

For as long as people have been including cannabis in medical, spiritual, and recreational activities, it has been infused into food and drink. One of the more noteworthy and historic examples is the cannabis drink called bhang lassi (often known simply as “bhang”). Bhang has been an essential part of the Hindu religious festival known as Holi in India for thousands of years, where revelers openly drink and share the mixture of milk, sugar, spices, and cannabis.

In the U.S., because of laws prohibiting marijuana use and negative social attitudes toward cannabis, most production and consumption of edibles (as cannabis-infused foods and drinks are known) has taken place underground. But, the candies and cookies found at recreational stores and dispensaries today are a direct descendant of products that were sold in American stores in the 1800s. The American enterprise known as the Gunjah Wallah Company made a popular maple sugar hashish candy that they touted as a “most pleasurable and harmless stimulant guaranteed to be a complete mental and physical invigorator” (read more about the candy, and the fascinating history of marijuana, in Cannabis: A History). From the mid-1800’s through the turn of the century, this candy was sold over the counter in stores across the country, advertised openly in newspapers, and even featured in the Sears-Roebuck catalog.

Of course, prohibition came along, making the Gunja Wallah Company and all of its clientele very unhappy by proclaiming cannabis and products made from cannabis to be illegal. It was not until various states began to legalize medical marijuana in the late 1990’s that edible production formally resumed. Ever-increasing demand by medical marijuana patients for high-quality edibles led to a wide array of candies, sweets, drinks, lozenges, and other cannabis-infused alternatives to smoking. And now that several states have also legalized recreational marijuana and created regulatory agencies to ensure quality, there are more edibles available to cannabis users than ever.

Edibles have always been and will continue to be an extremely popular consumption option for marijuana users.

When a food or drink is cannabis-infused, it simply means that a cannabis product is used as an ingredient; however, using straight, raw pot in your recipes is not advisable. When raw marijuana is subjected to high temperatures, the psychoactive ingredient THC breaks down. But THC can be preserved and protected in cooking by combining your cannabis with butter or oils before it’s used in a recipe. Because THC is soluble in fat (meaning fat will absorb it), butter or oil is a perfect vehicle for getting marijuana into your favorite goodies:

  • Because it’s absorbed into the fat, you don’t lose THC effects during baking or heating
  • It’s easy to add cannabis to recipes using cannabutter or cannabis oil since most recipes call for butter or oil
  • Getting cannabis into the goodies with butter or oil helps mask the taste of cannabis in the edible

An Edibles Overview

Types of Edibles

The wide variety of edible products that contain cannabis fall into three uptake categories (i.e. how you take them and how they are absorbed).

Gastrointestinal Uptake (Eating Edibles)

When most people think of edibles, they envision something like the time-honored pot brownie that is absorbed into the system during digestion. Edibles like these – mostly foods and sweets – make up the gastrointestinal uptake category. Though it may take some time before their effects are felt, these edibles often produce a more intense and longer-lasting high.

Some edibles that are absorbed through gastrointestinal uptake are:

  • Brownies
  • Cookies
  • Candy bars
  • Snack mixes (trail mix)
  • Cakes
  • Capsules and pills
Oral Uptake

Other products on the edibles list are absorbed through saliva in your mouth and usually take the form of either hard candies you suck on, or drops or sprays that you place under your tongue.

These edibles take much less time than gastrointestinally-absorbed edibles to make their effects felt, but also wear off faster.

Some edibles that are absorbed through oral intake are:

  • Lozenges
  • Suckers/lollipops
  • Gum
  • Tinctures
  • Sprays
Hybrids

And then there are the edibles that defy categorization. Because they are absorbed both in your stomach and your mouth, they are considered to be hybrids.

Users may feel effects quickly from the THC absorbed in their saliva, and then feel the effects of absorption in the stomach long after the intiial high.

Hybrid edibles include:

  • Some chocolates, such as truffles
  • Sodas
  • Energy shots
  • Elixirs
  • Drink powders/drops/mixes
How Edibles Are Made

Many people choose to make their own edibles, experimenting with recipes and ingredients to find just the right tastes and effects. If you’re interested in making your own edibles, be sure to try some of our favorite recipes below.

But others prefer to simply buy their favorite cannabis-infused goodies from stores and dispensaries in states where medical and/or recreational marijuana is legal, primarily because they are:

  • Convenient
  • High quality (quality is controlled by regulatory bodies)
  • Proportioned appropriately (you know how much marijuana is in each serving)
  • Varied (there’s something for every taste bud)
  • Delicious!

So how are they produced?

  • Processors (the companies that make edibles) purchase marijuana from producers (growers).
    • Many of them buy the trim, or waste clippings, from producers’ harvests.
    • Don’t worry – trim still makes for a high-quality product.
  • They typically infuse the cannabis into foods and drinks via butter or oil (it doesn’t go directly into edibles in raw form).
  • After that, the process is not much different than the ones used to make your favorite grocery-store snack or soda with a commercial kitchen or industrial assembly line cranking out your favorite edible.
    • One major advantage to prepackaged edibles is that the cannabis is sure to be homogenized or spread evenly throughout the product. This means that all servings contain the exact same amount of THC (the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana).
  • Edibles are then packaged into single-serving portions (each usually contains about 10 mg of THC).
  • In states where recreational marijuana is legal, edibles may be sent for testing to ensure quality and quantity of THC per serving.
  • Once approved, edibles are sent to market where responsible cannabis users may purchase them

A few words of caution about the commercially processed edibles sold in stores and dispensaries:

  • Even on packages that explicitly state how much THC is in each serving, it is difficult to know how potent the edible is. You don’t know:
    • How potent the marijuana strain used is
    • The quality of the marijuana used
    • How that dosage will affect YOU individually
  • In states where only medical marijuana is legal, there may be little or no oversight of the production of edibles sold in dispensaries. That means:
    • No license is needed to produce them other than a commercial cooking license
    • No state-regulated testing for quality is conducted on the products
    • No assurances are given that products are free from allergens such as nuts (very important for people with peanut allergies!)

Above all, be cautious when consuming edibles, especially for the first time. Don’t hesitate to ask your store or dispensary for help. When you’re ready to try edibles, here are some edible best practices to help you consume responsibly.

Using Edibles

Edibles vs. Smoking

Why do cannabis users eat edibles in addition to, or instead of, smoking marijuana?

  • It’s an alternative to smoking.
    • Some people don’t like smoking, or find it to be too harsh on their lungs.
    • Edibles allow them to enjoy marijuana without smoking or inhaling.
  • It’s economical and efficient.
    • A little bit of weed goes a long way in preparing or cooking edibles
    • So eating just a small amount can be a more economical (and just as potent, if not more so) approach to achieving a high than buying bud.
  • It’s more discreet.
    • Edibles are portable, inconspicuous, and can be consumed anywhere.
    • This is particularly helpful in hotel rooms and other places where smoking is banned.
  • The high is different. When eating edibles, users find that:
    • The effects take longer to kick in than smoking – anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours
    • The high lasts longer than smoking – users can feel effects for as long as 4-8 hours
    • The high is stronger and more intense than smoking
    • This is why some medical patients prefer edibles for dealing with pain
Eating the Right Amount

So how much of a cookie, or how many gummies, should you eat?

The answer depends greatly on several factors, including:

  • How much cannabis was used in the product
  • How strong the cannabis is, or what strain it is
  • How evenly the cannabis was spread through the food
  • How cannabis usually affects the person ingesting it, and
  • What their tolerance is for cannabis

When consuming edibles purchased in stores or dispensaries, you should start with no more than a single serving. A single serving generally contains 5-10 mg of THC (as marked on the package) and each serving will be separately packaged or denoted in some way.

  • If you’re trying edibles for the first time, or if you are trying a new edible for the first time, eat half the recommended serving.
  • Wait an hour, or longer if this is your first time, before ingesting more
  • If you’re not feeling any effects, try eating a half-serving more

With homemade edibles, it is much more difficult to choose the right dosage and estimate potency.

  • Start by eating half of what you’d expect a single serving to be – so half of a brownie square, etc.
  • Wait an hour, or longer if this is your first time, before ingesting more
  • If you’re not feeling any effects, try eating a half-serving more

As we’ve mentioned, consuming marijuana edibles in any form impacts everyone differently. Learn more about how much to consume, and what to do if the edible you’ve ingested is too strong for you.

How to Make Edibles

Cannabis users of all kinds – recreational users and medical patients; new users and long-time enthusiasts – enjoy making their own edibles.

Making your own edibles can:

  • Be more cost-effective than buying them in a store or dispensary
  • Allow for experimentation with recipes
  • Allow users to create the right dosage with the right potency
  • Be a lot of fun

The basis of any edible recipe is a cannabis-infused baking ingredient, such as:

  • Butter
  • Milk
  • Cream
  • Cooking Oil
  • Flour

See our Marijuana Cooking Guide to learn more about making your own.

What kinds of edibles can you make on your own?

  • Treats – cookies, brownies, toffees, brittles, etc,
  • Hard candies
  • Gummies
  • Suckers and lollipops
  • Beverages – sodas, teas, alcoholic drinks, and more
