Edibles refer to food products infused with cannabis-derived compounds such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). These consumables are an alternative to smoking or vaporizing cannabis and are used both for medical and recreational purposes. Unlike inhaled cannabis, edibles pass through the digestive system and are metabolized by the liver, which converts THC into a more potent compound that has a longer-lasting and more intense effect on the brain. This process can lead to a delayed onset of effects, typically ranging from 30 minutes to several hours, which can vary based on individual metabolism, the amount consumed, and the presence of other ingested substances. Edibles come in various forms, including baked goods, candies, gummies, chocolates, beverages, and more. The diversity and discreet nature of edibles have contributed to their popularity. However, due to the delayed onset of effects, there is a risk of overconsumption, which underscores the importance of educating consumers about proper dosing. The regulation of edibles varies by jurisdiction, with some regions having strict guidelines on dosage, packaging, and labeling to ensure consumer safety and prevent accidental ingestion, particularly by children. Academic research on edibles has focused on their pharmacokinetics, therapeutic potential, public health implications, and regulatory challenges.
