Some people use cannabis food to ease stress, while others eat it to improve symptoms of a medical condition. Either way, cannabis food is a “thing” and its only getting more popular in states that are legalizing recreational cannabis use.
What is Cannabis Food?
Cannabis food, also known as cannabis edible, cannabis cuisine, cannabis infused food is a food product (either produced commercial or homemade) that contains cannabis extract as an active ingredient. Edibles are a way to consume cannabis.
According to WikiPedia, “THC-dominant edibles are consumed for recreational and medical purposes. Some edibles contain a negligible amount of THC and are instead dominant in other cannabinoids, most commonly cannabidiol (CBD).”
Can you Eat Cannabis?
Yes, you can eat cannabis. People have been consuming cannabis-infused foods and drinks throughout history, as far back as 1000 B.C. Eating cannabis-infused products can induce euphoria and relieve stress, similar to alcohol. Cannabis chefs make their own cannabis food by infusing it with THC oil or butter.
According to FoodandWine, “Edibles often contain 5 to 10 milligrams of THC, but if you’re new to cannabis, start by microdosing with 1 or 2 milligrams and work up from there. Unlike inhaled marijuana, it can take over an hour to feel an edible’s effects—and the high lasts much longer.”
Cannabis Food Pairing
Cannabis food pairing means that inhaled marijuana such as joints will be matched up with food courses throughout the meal.
Health Benefits of Cannabis Food
According to Healthline.com, eating cannabis food has many health benefits and is often used to treat conditions such as:
- Chronic pain
- Cancer-related symptoms
Edible cannabis such as pills, oils, tinctures, and gummies are often used to treat pain, poor appetite, and weight loss in people who have cancer.
