What you need to know about edibles
We love edibles. Most people are familiar with space cake but there are more (and better) ways to consume cannabis. For instance, at Coffeeshop De Kade we offer an Oreo brownie, red velvet cake and organically oatmeal and banana bread. So, what do you need to know before you order one of our delicious snacks?
It takes time to kick in
Smoke is absorbed by your lungs and that’s why your high kicks in almost immediately. When you eat it, your body has to digest it. This means it can take up to one or two hours before you begin to feel your high.
It works longer
The effect of edibles is a little different from when you smoke cannabis. Smoking makes you high for about three hours. But with edibles, your high can take up to eight to ten hours! Some people even experience an even longer high.
Take it slow
Your first time doing edibles can be overwhelming. Our advice is to take it slow. Start with a quarter of your edible and wait for one or two hours. Have something to drink and relax. You can always take some more. And make sure you take enough time to enjoy your high!
