The Complete Guide To Buying Cannabis Edibles At DTPG

Cannabis edibles like candies, cookies, tinctures, beverages, and chocolates may provide slightly different effects from smoking or vaping. Getting the proper dosage for your needs can be tricky. Our budtenders at DTPG have been serving California’s best products since 2006 and can help you find your ideal product and dose. There are several reasons why people choose cannabis edibles that we’ll outline with recommendations from our dispensary in this handy guide.

Why Choose Edibles Instead Of Vaping Or Smoking?

Eating or drinking cannabis-infused products may result in more potent, longer-lasting effects than toking. There are several reasons this could be the case:

  1. Originally, researchers believed there was a direct correlation between how long an individual vaped and their final psychoactive dose (or “cannabinoid profile.”) It now appears that how you ingest cannabis also influences potency!
  2. Eating or drinking cannabis may delay the buzz because the THC has to go through your digestive tract and into your bloodstream before it can click into THC receptors in the body and brain. 
  3. The human body is comprised of many systems that interact with one another; for example, the brain and digestive system influence each other because they both communicate through food intake. So, when you consume a pot cookie instead of inhaling smoke, signals are received more clearly, potentially elevating the length and strength of the edible high.
  4. Edibles at DTPG may provide different kinds of effects than inhaling cannabis. Some people experience very different results when eating or drinking cannabis products than when they smoke or vape. Effects also depend on the strain used in each edible.
  5. Edibles infused with live resin may provide more of a full-spectrum effect than those made with distillates.

Edibles And Potential Health Benefits

Cannabis edibles are incredible for people who want an intense experience with their cannabis. Edible products typically contain higher concentrations of CBD, which is why they’re more likely to provide more medical benefits than recreational flower strains and concentrates in some cases.

Cannabis edibles are more popular than ever before due to specific benefits, including extended, more balanced highs, measurable doses, and enhanced health and medical benefits. At DTPG, we carry medical-grade marijuana products and recreational cannabis in various edible options like cookies, brownies, candy, and more.

With edibles, you can control your dose more easily than with products like flower or concentrates. Micro-dosing is ideal for people who don’t want an overwhelming effect from their weed. This means taking small amounts of THC in edible form so that your overall effects might remain mild or even unnoticeable.

Microdosing

Microdosing with edibles might provide mild effects that help reduce anxiety and improve the perception of good mental health.

Many people consume small amounts of edibles in public settings to potentially reduce their stress levels. Athletes might microdose throughout the day for pain management and avoid smoking flower for the sake of their lungs.

Cannabis edibles may provide a wide array of effects, including enhanced pain relief, improved mood, and stress relief. They can also help you feel more creative and focused while enhancing your sense of well-being and gratitude.

Finding Your Best Dose

There are no one-size-fits-all recommendations for edible product dosage. The best way to know if your body will respond well to a particular dose is by trying it out and seeing how that makes you feel. There is less risk of adverse side effects when using cannabis edibles from DTPG, as all our products are carefully measured to ensure consistent and accurate dosing.

All edibles at DTPG are labeled with the exact amount of THC each product contains. The best way to find your perfect balance is by starting with a low dose. Like nano gummy candies for example, which only have 2.5 mg per piece. We recommend eating one and waiting 1 ½ hour before consuming more.
