Marijuana Edibles– What to Know

There are many different delivery methods and forms of cannabis including smoking, vaping, tinctures, and creams. One delivery method that has been gaining popularity in recent years is cannabis in edible forms.

You may have heard of edibles, but most people think of chocolate, gummies, or cookies when they think of edibles. Edibles can actually be anything from vegetables to meat to tea. Basically, you can add THC oil to anything to make it a cannabis-infused!

Although marijuana edibles are not yet legal in the State of Kentucky, it is inevitable that the program will expand to add new delivery methods soon. Here is everything you need to know about cannabis edibles:

The High

Cannabis edibles are famous for their mind-altering effects, because they last much longer than other forms of cannabis. When cannabis is consumed, its effects can last anywhere from 4-8 hours or more.

Cannabis edibles also take much longer to kick in than other forms. The effects of smoking cannabis, for example, are known to kick in almost instantaneously, whereas edibles can take hours to kick in.

It is important to be aware of this, because many people think “I don’t feel anything, I need to take more,” when they really just need to wait a bit longer. You should wait two hours before taking any more edibles to ensure you are feeling the full effects from your medicine.


There are some things you should do to prepare for taking an edible. Because it can take a while to feel their effects and because the effects last so long, you should clear your schedule for the day.

Make sure you have no obligations, especially obligations that involve driving or operating machinery. It is also a good idea to eat about an hour before you consume an edible. Keep in mind the fact that what and how much you eat will affect how long the edible will take to kick in.
