Your Field Guide to Enjoying Cannabis Edibles

You have more options than ever before to explore the world of cannabis edibles! Learn how edibles can enhance your mood if you understand what works best for your experience.

The Basics: Cannabis Edibles 101

  • Dosing

    It's always best to start small. Enjoy a 2.5 or 5mg THC gummy, mint or chocolate, and wait 2 hours before consuming another. Our low-dose products allow you to fine-tune your desired experience.

  • Onset

    It will take between 15 minutes and two hours to feel the full effect of your edible. There are a handful of factors that determine onset time, like metabolism, body type, cannabis tolerance, and how recently you've eaten.

  • Duration

    Effects tend to last between four and six hours, but everyone’s experience is unique. Consuming edibles in small increments is a good way to steer clear of taking it too far.

Why Should You Try Cannabis Edibles?

Happy Lungs

One of the most common reasons cannabis consumers enjoy edibles is because they don’t have a negative impact on your lungs.

Easy Dosing

Controlling your dosage with edibles is simple because you know exactly how much THC you’re getting. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content is printed on each package.

Discrete & Odor-Free

You can carry edibles in a purse or your pocket without any telltale cannabis odors. For those who don't want to draw any attention to themselves, edibles are a great option.

Flavorful & Delicious

Edibles come in so many forms and types. The key is finding one that fits your preferences for dosage and taste. You won't sacrifice flavor with High Road.
