It appears edibles are the latest crave. Edibles are food products that contain cannabis in baked good, candies, and beverages (Leonard, 2020). So many people want instant results and edibles can assist with a mild medical issue, like stress, or anxiety, but they are not for everyone. It is best practice to seek medical advice instead of self medicating.

It appears that people feel better about ingesting an edible instead of smoking cannabis or taking a pill. Keep in mind the packaging may not list all the ingredients in the product, except the amount of THC, which may or may not be accurate. Edibles do not affect everyone in the same way.

Edibles have not been evaluated for efficacy by the Food and Drug Administration, or been confirmed by research. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease, but to make you feel better.

Shops may have sprung up all over your town, but remember to do your research before you indulge. Edibles are not for everyone, and a simple life style change maybe all you need to get lasting health benefits.

Just keeping you informed.
