The (M)edible Experience

“Medible” is the term given to medicine that is edible – meaning it’s a food that has been infused with cannabis. Unlike the brownies of yesterday, today’s medibles have undergone strict laboratory testing for potency levels and residual pesticides.  All products require labeling that provides the consumer with information about the product including laboratory information and results.

One of the most important steps you must take before eating an edible is reading all the potency information on the label so you know how strong the product is.  Each product has the amount of THC shown in milligrams (mg) and corresponding serving sizes.  Most of the time you will also see the amount of CBD found in the product as well.  As a general rule, you should always start slow so you know how the product affects you.

Every person is different and different substances can affect us in different ways.  It is suggested to start with no more than a 5mg dose of THC during an 8 hour period.  It is not fun to overdo it so it is better to start slow and slowly progress until you find a dose that is suitable for you.

Medibles provide a very discreet way to medicate.  The options available are endless and you can pretty much infuse anything you can imagine.  You can purchase our dry flower to infuse your own food at home or you get something amazing that is ready to go and without any of the hard work.  At Cannabend, we offer a large selection of edibles including baked goods, candies and beverages from sparkling tonics and ginger beer to coffee and lemonades.  Our selection and variety is quite large so we invite you to come in and explore.

Here are a few more tips to keep when eating medibles:

1. It is extremely important to remember to never operate a vehicle or machinery while under the influence.

2. Stay hydrated.

3. Be disciplined and don’t eat more than what you are supposed to.  Be prepared with extra food around the house in case you cannot fight your cravings.  Put away the medibles and munch on regular food.

4. Start slow!!! 5mg THC is a safe place to start.

5. Relax. Surround yourself with positive people or be alone but be positive. It should be a great experience and never rush! Take it slow. It is a slow process but very worth it!

Please note that these are just suggestions.  Please consume responsibly!
