Medibles: the man, the myth, the legend. Edibles have become one of the world’s favorite ways to consume cannabis and hemp-derived cannabinoids, but what exactly does it mean?
Read on to learn the ins and outs of marijuana edibles. But before we move on, make sure to check out our line of top-shelf edibles:
- Medibles refers to marijuana edibles.
- Medibles tend to be more potent than other forms of consuming cannabinoids.
- Medibles come in many cannabinoids.
- Delta Munchies has some great medible options.
What Are Medibles?
Medibles is just us in the cannabis community coming up with quirky slang – we’ve been doing it for decades, why stop now? Stoner, ganja, roaches, blazed, couch-locked, the list goes on.
Medibles just mean marijuana plus edibles. As in marijuana edibles. Hence, medibles.
Marijuana edibles, or medibles, come in an infinite variety. Gummies, drinks, chips, brownies, ice cream, beef jerky, lollipops: the only limit to edibles is the creator’s imagination.
In fact, there are even a few restaurants and cafés scattered across the country that have entire medible menus packed with different cannabinoids.
What Do Medibles Mean?
Medibles means exactly what it sounds like, but with a little twist. It’s thought that the term might have been made up to resonate with the medicinal user crowd, but that’s not the word’s true meaning.
Medibles means any ingestable food item that contains marijuana or hemp-derived cannabinoids. It doesn’t even necessarily have to be high-inducing: foods infused with CBD and other non-psychoactive cannabinoids also make the list.
Benefits of Cannabis
Before we walk into the magical land of cannabis edibles, let’s give a little overview of what cannabis actually is.
Cannabis is a plant family that has long been thought to be just marijuana, but not all marijuana is cannabis, and not all cannabis is marijuana.
Within the cannabis family, you’ve got marijuana and hemp. Two sisters with different attributes but each beautiful in their own right. While marijuana remains federally illegal, hemp and its derived compounds were made legal across the country in the 2018 Farm Bill Act.
So what benefits does cannabis have? It all depends on the cannabinoid (there are more than 100 out there, so strap in), the terpenes, the strain, its use, and the dosage.
Still, these are some potential benefits that might be attributed to cannabis in some cases:
- Calm the mind and body
- Provide relief from physical pain
- Promote reduced inflammation
- Promote better sleep
- Fight stress
Benefits of Cannabis Edibles
While there are many ways to consume cannabis, edibles are many people’s favorite way. You can smoke, drink, eat, dab, or vape it, but ingesting it is a great option for those who are looking for longer and more potent effects.
Unlike smoking or vaping cannabis, edibles don’t metabolize through the lungs. Instead, the liver takes over that job and the cannabinoids are processed into the bloodstream through there. Because of this, it interacts much more strongly with your endocannabinoid system, hence the intense trip.
Why do some people choose medibles over more traditional ways of ingesting cannabis?
- The correct dosage can give a longer and more potent experience, although it’s important to start off with a lower dose until you find what’s right for you
- Delicious flavors
- No impact on your lungs or respiratory system
- Intense relaxation
- Might help manage health symptoms like pain and inflammation
Choosing Your Cannabinoid
Choosing the right cannabinoid for you is the first step to finding relief, relaxation, and fun in every experience. So how do you do it?
First, think about what you want to get out of cannabis. Are you looking for the recreational, getting-super-high, potent side of it? Or the intensity to manage symptoms and knock out of real life for a bit? Delta 9 THC, the original gangster and most well-known of the cannabinoids, might be a good option.
If you like the effects of regular THC but find it to be a bit overwhelming, delta 8 THC is another psychoactive cannabinoid that’ll get you high, but not nearly as intense as delta 9. This one is great for those prone to cannabis-induced anxiety or paranoia.
For those who want something stronger than delta 8 but not quite reaching the highs of delta 9, there’s HHC. About three-quarters as strong as regular THC, this cannabinoid can have intense effects that rival delta 9, but might not have such prevalent uncomfortable side effects.
If you want to avoid the psychoactive element altogether, CBD is the way to go. This is the most famous non-psychoactive cannabinoid, often used for its potential benefits when it comes to therapeutic and health-related symptom management. It won’t get you high, but it has plenty of possible uses.
