Lots of folks are ecstatic about weed edibles! Edibles are perfect for medical users who are green to cannabis and who want to experience the plant’s therapeutic relief without having to deal with the harshness of inhaling smoke. Edibles can also provide an intense, recreational euphoric high, even for seasoned stoners who smoke daily and who are looking for a more potent THC treat. So it’s understandable why cannaseurs bought 5.8 million infused weed edibles and concentrate products in 2014.
Cannabis and food consumption have always complimented one another like peanut butter and jelly because the endogenous cannabinoid receptors in our brains, which are stimulated by the consumption of marijuana, are responsible for regulating our ability to taste various foods by stimulating our sense of smell. Smoking as well as eating weed edibles simply enhances this natural mechanism in the brain which of course is why people get the munchies when they get high. The fact that cannabis stimulates the appetites of individuals suffering from an array of afflictions as diverse as AIDS, chemo treatments for cancers, epilepsy, MS, ALS, Alzheimer’s, anxiety disorders and inflammation is believed by many to have originally inspired medical doctors to reconsider the science underlying drug prohibition, in turn creating a new demand for the edible marijuana market.
