Edibles: if you’ve tried them, you know what you’re getting into. If you haven’t, you’re probably curious about what to expect. Will it be great? Or will you find yourself curled up in a corner singing lullabies to yourself and fighting a panic attack?

Luckily, the latter only happens if you are unprepared or have a THC dosage way too high for your tolerance. Don’t worry; we’ve got your back and will tell you everything you need to know about taking edibles and some tips and tricks to make it the best trip ever.

At Delta Munchies, we’re committed to making your edible experiences fun, safe, enjoyable, and above all, unforgettable. Read on to discover the ins and outs of cannabis edibles.

Before we moe on, check out our selection of amazing edibles:


Key Takeaways

  • Edibles hit much harder than smoking or vaping, however they take longer to kick in.
  • Edibles offer an easy way to consume cannabis without being noticed.
  • As long as you store them properly, edibles will last a few months.


How to Enjoy Edibles

Edibles kick in a heck of a lot more than other ways of consuming cannabis. When it comes to making an edible experience enjoyable, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First off: dosage. 

While homemade brownies with THC butter have been made for decades (and led to many interesting experiences), it’s hard to know exactly how many milligrams of THC are in them. 

Although not impossible, it’s usually a guessing game and a whole lot of math, which can end in a disappointing or overwhelming trip. 

Rest assured: it’s impossible to fatally overdose from eating too many edibles. Although it can lead to confusion, anxiety, paranoia, nausea, and a bad time, you never need to worry about waking up at the pearly gates of heaven.

Delta Munchies makes it easier for you to know what you’re getting yourself into: all of our products are dosed, so you’ll know exactly how much THC you’re putting in your body. 

If you’ve never tried edibles before, the widely accepted dosage for a first-timer is between 5 to 10mg. 

Seasoned stoners might go for much higher doses and usually know their tolerance. Whatever the case, it’s always best to stick to the lower end of the recommended dosage to prevent a bad trip.

Second: remember it’s a waiting game

You might want to wait for up to two hours for the effects to set in, and if you feel like you could go for more, go right ahead. Remember: you can always take more, but you can’t un-take if you’ve taken too much.

You’ll also want to check the shelf life of your edibles so you’re not taking them past the expiration date. If you’ve made your own, make sure you don’t take them if they go bad.

Another tip is to make sure you have a free agenda so you don’t have to show up to a baby shower, class, meeting, work, or any other responsibility under the influence of edibles. 

It’s hard to say how long the high lasts because it depends on each individual, so the best time to take edibles is on a day free from commitments. 


Best Places to Get High

it’s super important for you to be in an environment with people where you feel safe, calm, and relaxed. 

Whether that’s at home with a movie or in the wilderness, admiring flowers is up to you, just make sure you feel at ease with what is surrounding you.

Here are some ideas for your next (or first) edible escapade.

Right at Home

If it’s your first time, this is the ideal spot unless you’re up for an adventure. Home is where you feel grounded and safe and don’t need to worry about anything else. Pro tip: first-timers might want to have a seasoned trip sitter over.

Invite over your bestie or a small gathering of your favorite stoners to chill out in the backyard or the porch, make plans to cook a meal together, play some tunes, or simply plop down on the couch to watch movies or have deep conversations.

At the Beach

If you live near a beach or are visiting one, there’s no better place to pop an edible. The sound of the waves, the sand in between your toes, the sun on your cheeks, the salty breeze: all of these feelings will be felt times a million after taking an edible. 

An Aquarium

Aquariums are impressive sober; just imagine seeing all those colorful fishies and endless blue corridors completely stoned. 

This might even be a great date idea for you and your weed-loving partner. You’ll be mesmerized by the sights, colors, and nature found in a specially-curated space to enjoy the vastness of what lies beneath ocean waves.

A Music Festival

Weed and music have gone hand in hand for decades. If you have a cool concert or festival coming up, popping a gummy or two might have you feeling the beat deep in your soul, dancing like nobody’s watching, and feeling utterly euphoric. 

In the Woods

Avid hikers and nature lovers might get a lot out of having edibles and going on a little excursion. Whether you’re a rock collector, tree admirer, sightseer, mushroom hunter, or just a fan of the great outdoors, consider taking edibles on your next hike or camping trip.

Amusement Parks

Although not for the faint of heart, having some edibles, riding rollercoasters, and munching down on funnel cake is a dream for adrenaline-junkie stoners. While being in crowded places while high as a kite isn’t for everyone, it can be a unique experience for those who like to people-watch and channel their inner child.


Best Stoner Foods

It goes without saying that munchies are part of the equation when it comes to getting stoned. Here are some of the best snacks and meals to enjoy after the effects of the edible set in and munchies come to the surface.


Who doesn’t love pizza?

Cookie Dough

You either love it or hate it, unless you’re high. Then you always enjoy cookie dough.


Nutella makes everything better.


If you’re a fan of salty munchies, you can’t go wrong with this classic.


A classic. Make sure to have milk around for that cottonmouth.


Don’t rush when drinking it to avoid brain freeze.


A little taste of Asia that will blend masterfully with your high.


Spicy food and cannabis can be truly an amazing combination.


Guaranteed, you’ll end up licking your fingers.


Bet you’ll down the whole bag.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

You’ll want to have some milk around for these too.

Ice Cream

Another classic.


Best Edibles to Try

Not to toot our own horn, but our edibles are a great option for both beginners and cannaseurs. Because most of them (with exceptions, of course) are made of delta 8 and not delta 9, the high is more clearheaded and mild, but still a trip worth going on. 

Delta 8 is a milder form of delta 9 THC, which makes it a fantastic option for beginners and first-timers, as well as those who don’t want to commit to the intensity of regular THC.

If you want to go for true and tried, intense delta 9 THC, we’ve got stuff for you too. 

Going from lowest to highest dose products, here are some of our recommendations if you’re in need of an edible adventure. 

Watermelon Runtz Delta 8 Gummies

Our 25mg Delta 8 Watermelon Runtz Gummies are a terrific place to start off your edible journey. Start off with a single or half dose, turn on that patience switch and enjoy the slow, but sure, sensations.

Delta 8 Sour Bites

Available in 10mg to 30mg doses, our Delta 8 Sour Bites are a step up from Watermelon Runtz, but still, a good option if you’re a beginner.

From: $14.99

You’ll get 15 sugar-coated sweet and sour gummies in an assortment of flavors, so we can assure you’ll find one that you like. 

Delta 8 Gummy Bears

So you’re one of those “aesthetic” people, we see you and we hear you. Our Delta 8 Gummy Bears are similar to our other gummies, but these have that classical gummy bear look that somehow makes them taste better. Maybe it’s the nostalgia?

Out of stock

Enjoy your choice of 10mg to 30mg per gummy of mild to potent delta 8 and enjoy the ride.

Delta 8 Peach Rings

You thought we were done with gummy types? Think again.

If you’re into the sweetness and fruitiness of peaches, check out our Delta 8 Peach Rings.

All of our delta 8 products are made with the most potent and high-quality ingredients, so we can almost promise you that you’ll enjoy the experience you get out of these delicious delights with a happy ending.

Blue Razz HHC Gummies

HHC is another cannabinoid that can be enjoyed. It’s said to be somewhere between delta 8 to delta 9.

If you’ve only tried delta 8 and want to go a bit further without committing to the most powerful of the psychoactive, we recommend our Blue Razz HHC Gummies.

Each gummy has 25mg of HHC and is packed with blueberry and raspberry flavors you’ll love to chew on.

Full Spectrum Delta 9 Strawberry Shortcake Gummies

Although the dosage of our 10mg Full Spectrum Delta 9 Strawberry Shortcake Gummies is lower than some of our delta 8 products, these pack a punch because they contained tried and true delta 9 THC.

Out of stock

If it’s your first time, take half a gummy to start with and see where that takes you before indulging in any more, although we get that you’d want to: the sweet, citrusy, and cakey flavor is to die for.

Plus, these gummies are infused with a cocktail of cannabinoids to give you an entourage effect: CBN, CBG, CBD, CBCa, CBGa, CBDa, THCV, THCva, delta 8, and THCa.

Green Apple Delta 8 Sour Belt

These are not for the faint of heart. We recommend seasoned users try our Delta 8 Green Apple Sour Belt, which packs a hefty 300mg per belt. 

Even if you have a high tolerance, we suggest trying 1/10th of a belt to start off with. Because of the high dosage, even the most advanced stoner might want to start off slow when it comes to these babies.
