FAQs About Marijuana Edibles

What are the effects of CBD-infused drinks?

Studies say that CBD may have several therapeutic benefits, including decreasing anxiety, minimizing inflammation, among others.

How long does it take for cannabis-infused edibles to kick in?

Typically, marijuana edibles take around 30 to 60 minutes to kick in. However, this could depend on many factors like the active ingredients of the product. Products with higher THC concentrations could take effect quicker.

Why do edibles seem to hit harder?

Edibles can hit so differently because they’re processed by your digestive system, not by your lungs. THC that is vaporized reaches the bloodstream through your lungs almost instantly, but it takes some time for an edible to be digested by the body.
