Cannabis can be consumed orally by infusing food. You can purchase edibles in select doses at our DC dispensary or make your own infused food at home by adding our activated THC or CBD to a recipe of your choice. When having an edible, the effects will be delayed because cannabinoids first need to be digested and metabolized. This process takes between 1 - 2 hours and the effects are usually felt for 4 - 6 hours thereafter. It is important to start with a low dose when medicating with cannabis orally because the effect is sustained for a long time. Since everyone has a unique endocannabinoid system, the right dose for you may differ from the right dose for someone else. You can figure out the right dose for you by starting with low-dose edibles and progressing to higher-dose edibles if appropriate.
