The top 5 misconceptions about cannabis edibles


Cannabis edibles are new to many consumers, and there are lots of misconceptions about them. Let’s take a look at 5 of the most common consumer misconceptions when it comes to cannabis edibles.

They take too long to kick in

This is one of the most common misconceptions about cannabis edibles. Many people believe that because edibles are ingested, they take much longer to take effect than smoking or vaporizing cannabis. However, this is not always the case. In general, edibles will take effect within 30 minutes to 2 hours after being consumed. However, this can vary depending on a person’s metabolism and other factors, so it’s best to give yourself plenty of time to feel the effects when you’re experimenting with a new dose or cannabinoid.

They’re too strong

If you’re considering edibles as a method of cannabis consumption, it’s important to know that they don’t always pack the same punch as smoking or vaping. The strength of an edible will vary depending on factors like its THC content and how quickly your body can process it. Make sure to do your research about the cannabinoids you’re ingesting, and keep track of how they make you feel.

They’re not safe

Cannabis edibles are often seen as being unsafe, especially for children and pets. Eating cannabis can be as safe as any other food item. Regulated companies like Fritz’s make edibles from high-quality ingredients under strict standards. Intended for adult consumption only, these goodies undergo careful testing to ensure they’re clean and in compliance with regulations – making them an ideal choice for those who wish to enjoy the benefits of cannabis! And by keeping them in their original, child-proof packages, you ensure that any kids and pets who come into contact with them stay safe too.

You’ll get way too high

Many people believe that consuming cannabis edibles will result in an extremely high level of intoxication. But this isn’t usually the case, especially when consumers are eating regulated edibles that are limited to 10 mg of THC per package. The effects of cannabis edibles vary depending on a number of factors, including the amount of THC in the product and how well it is metabolized by the body. In general, the effects of an edible will peak after 2-3 hours and then gradually decline over the next few hours.

They’re unhealthy

Cannabis edibles are often seen as being unhealthy due to their high calorie and fat content. However, this is not always the case. Cannabis edibles can be made with healthy ingredients such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. It can difficult for cannabis companies to get these kinds of products to market because of Health Canada’s strict regulations around allowable products, but consumers can always make their own healthy edibles at home.
