What are THC Edibles?

THC edibles are food products infused with marijuana. They come in many different forms, including gummies, chocolate bars, brownies, and even cannabis-infused drinks. THC is one of marijuana’s active ingredients, and it is responsible for giving a euphoric or high effect. 

Although some edible cannabis products might look like everyday food items, they are not food and are not intended to provide any nutritional value. Instead, they are an alternative method of cannabis consumption to smoking or vaping.

What is The Proper Dosage When Having THC Edibles?

The famous sentence “Start slow, go slow” is no joke. But what does this sentence even mean? Weed in Canada is sold from private or online dispensaries in individual packages with a maximum total dose of 500mg per piece. For most users, especially the new ones, 500mg of THC can be a lot. If you are new to THC edibles, you might want to start with 1 to 3 mg. This is a good starting dose where you can test how your body and mind feel and eventually see if you need more. 

If you are wondering where to find the exact amount of THC each of our products has, you can find it in the product description. Weed edibles usually take longer to kick in (Typically within two hours) than smoking a joint, a classic mistake is thinking that nothing is happening, and that’s when an incredible experience can turn into a frustrating situation. Patience is vital, and once again, if you decide to try weed edibles for the first time, you may want to wait until the next session before upping your dosage. 

The THC amount on edible depends on what kind of experience you’re looking for. The 10-mg dose is ideal for someone with a lot of time and not much responsibility, while 2.0 to 2.5 mg is perfect for those looking to have a great time.

What Are The Most Common Effects When Having THC Weed Edibles?

In this article, we’ve mentioned that THC edibles give you a high or euphoric feeling. However, there are more effects you could have when having weed edibles. In addition, you should consider that the effects on an edible might vary depending on the edible and the person’s age, gender, metabolism, and food intake. 

Some people with a faster metabolism have reported feeling the effects quicker, as the body digests and processes the edible faster. In addition, eating an edible on an empty stomach may also lead to faster acting effects. However, every person reacts differently, and the effects may take longer to manifest in some people.

What does it feel like to be high on THC edibles? It’s one of the main questions from people who have never tried marijuana. While the most common effects of marijuana are relaxation, euphoria, and sleepiness, it can also lead to paranoia, nausea, insomnia, etc. But no worries, if you ever start experiencing a “bad trip,” we recommend you increase your dosage in small increments to understand your tolerance level. 

Each person will have a unique experience with THC edibles. While some people experience engaging in deep and thoughtful conversations, others feel a heightened urge to paint, write, play music, or just watch movies. Here’s a great guide on our top 5 movies to watch while high on edibles.

How to Store THC Edibles So They Last

Most people don’t think about the importance of storing THC edibles properly until the edibles have melted and lost their flavour. The essential thing here is that there are many ways you can store your weed edibles, and we’ll show you how:

Airtight Containers

Use parchment paper to wrap small quantities of edibles, then seal these individually wrapped pieces in a Ziploc bag.

Glass Jars

Glass jars are very effective depending on what users intend to store. For sticky edibles, wrap them in parchment paper before storing them.


Many edibles can be kept in the freezer for several months without losing their quality or flavour. Once you take them out of the freezer, it’s recommended that you defrost them slowly, given that temperature changes can impact the taste.

If your edibles ever melt, don’t worry; there’s always a way to save them. Here’s a guide on what to do if your edibles melt.
