As the legality of marijuana production and consumption continues to expand, so too do the methods by which cannabis enthusiasts partake. Joints, bongs, spliffs, blunts, thai sticks, vaporizers, dabbing—they’re all becoming more and more popular as new consumers enter the market. But all these methods require that you ingest the wacky weed by burning it and inhaling the smoke. What if you don’t want to smoke? What if you can’t smoke for various medical reasons? Are you left “not high” and dry? Thankfully, the answer is no. There is another option: edibles. Aka weed candy.
We’re all familiar with the “special brownie”, but cannabis-infused edibles come in so many more varieties: cookies, drinks, pills, snacks, spreads, and even candies. It’s this latter form—cannabis candy—on which will be focusing in this article.
Weed Candy: A Great Alternative To Smoking
As already mentioned, marijuana candy is a great alternative for those who can’t smoke, or don’t want to smoke. Those on supplemental oxygen can still get the benefits of marijuana without the risk of explosion and death. Similarly, patients suffering from eating disorder, digestive disorders, and nausea due to chemotherapy can find relief from their symptoms by directly ingesting the low doses of cannabidiol (CBD) found in cannabis candy.
Another great reason people choose to consume their cannabis via candy is because it’s more discreet. No smoke. No smell. No coughing. No open flame. You can get your fix wherever you are, whenever you want.
Another interesting effect of getting your THC via candy—and one that many people prefer—is that the effects last for quite a bit longer compared to smoking. This is because the candy, and the weed it contains, must first be digested. Smoking/inhaling, on the other hand, is a much faster process because the smoke moves directly through your lungs into your bloodstream without the need for intermediary steps.
