What are THC edibles? 

The term THC edibles refer to any foods, candies, baked goods, or drinks that contain cannabis in some form that can be ingested, rather than smoked or vaporized. Edibles are usually baked products like cookies or confectionaries like sweets and chocolates. 

To begin the cannabis conversion process in preparation for making effective edibles, one has to expose their cannabis to either a heat, fat, or alcohol source so it will affect once it is eaten.  

To be added to edibles, cannabis must also be in a form that is usable for baking or cooking.  

What are the dangers of THC edibles

So with that bit of background in mind, let us now look at the dangers that are involved with the use of THC edibles. 

Cannabis induced psychosis 

This is an induced type of insanity from overuse of the edibles that often results in hallucinations.  

Affects the cardiovascular system 

Cannabis can cause an increase in heart rate and blood pressure and there is a higher risk of a heart attack following the use of cannabis. 

Impaired brain development and poor mental health 

This is a potential long-term effect of cannabis consumption beginning at a young age. Older adults, the other at-risk group, may experience increased cognitive impairment, risk of falls, heart arrhythmia, and various drug interactions.  

The risk of abuse of edibles or their said overuse by especially the youth and the old people is crucial in cases of pre-existing conditions such as heart diseases or even mental conditions as an excessive amount can even confuse. 

Unknown Potency 

It is very difficult to ascertain the THC amount in many edibles. Further, there is no proper law or legislation to guide the same process and so, more often than not the amount of THC indicated to be in the edible is seldom true. 

In this regard, for those consumers of marijuana that are not used to certain levels of THC, the amounts in the edibles may give the user a high that they did not expect and increased chances of negative effects.  

Delayed onset and a high potential for overdose 

 Edibles take a longer time to onset as compared to smoking and the onset of the edibles is usually after a couple of hours. 

The delay of the drug-taking effect often leads to the user consuming excessive amounts of THC resulting in a marijuana overdose.  

In Conclusion 

For users of THC edibles, it is to seek all the relevant information on the onset of the drug and its usage to avoid cases of overdose and for controlled use of edibles.
