You’ve probably had times when you wanted to smoke, but it was best not to draw attention to yourself. Maybe out in public in a park or at a social gathering. These are great moments to enjoy marijuana edibles. They’re effective, and you can enjoy your buzz without alerting anyone around you.
Now, you may have a friend who told you about the time he ate way too many edibles and was high for a day and a half. Don’t worry.
Edibles are perfectly safe - and by exercising just a little bit of common sense, can be a wonderful way to partake.
Here are five reasons why you should consider edibles.
No Assembly Required
There’s nothing to the process other than eating them. You don’t have to fiddle with any equipment or remember tricky smoking techniques. You don’t need a vaporizer or a pipe. You don’t even need a lighter. You just need to eat and enjoy.
Dosage Is Carefully Measured
You don’t have to worry about how hard you pull or how big of a hit you take. Dosage for edibles is strictly measured, and the THC content is clearly labeled in milligrams on the package. You’ll always know exactly how much you are consuming.
If you don’t know the exact amount you need for a good buzz, ease into it. You can always add, but you can’t take away. Just go slow and give it some time. Since you are digesting instead of inhaling, it takes a little bit longer for your body to capture the buzz. Don’t force it.
Smell That? No, You Don’t.
One of the biggest problems with smoking marijuana is the smell. It is very recognizable, it can be extremely powerful, and it has a tendency to hang around long after you’ve finished smoking. If that’s a problem for your particular social situation, edibles are here to rescue you. You’ll never have to worry about the smoke or smell again. The people around you will never know.
Keep It on the DL
No matter how casual you try to be when smoking marijuana in public, you always feel like the people around you know. Your one-hitter painted like a cigarette isn’t fooling anyone. People don’t stand in a circle and pass a cigarette around. Now that cigarette smoking is forbidden or discouraged in more and more places, you don’t have to worry about sticking out or attracting attention. Edibles can be enjoyed anywhere, and it looks no different than someone grabbing any other snack out of their backpack.
Your Throat and Lungs Will Thank You
The best part about edibles is that they are 100 percent smoke-free. That means you can get a nice buzz without shredding your throat. No more feeling like you smoked a pack of Lucky’s. No coughing or hacking, and certainly no sore throat the next morning. Enjoy your buzz and wake up feeling refreshed.
