EATING MARIJUANA

So, maybe you’re new to the World of Marijuana. Maybe you haven’t heard that when eaten, your body is able to make use of Marijuana’s amazing medicinal qualities.

Humans discovered the physical and mental effects of smoking and eating Marijuana centuries ago. Today, most edible food items are “medicated” by using “infused” butter or oil, and these products are commonly knowns as “medibles” or “edibles”.

Medibles – the common term for THC and/or CBD infused food products – come in an amazingly wide variety of forms – from the traditional brownie or chocolate chip cookie, to energy drinks and smoothies, candy, coffee – even cheddar asiago crackers and frozen pizza.

Medible(s) = marijuana + edible(s). THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBDs (Cannabidiol) are found in medibles either by themselves or in combination – all depending on the specific strain of marijuana used, and what the outcome is that you are looking to achieve. Medibles are a fantastic way to deliver the medicinal properties of marijuana, and it is believed that ingesting is far superior to smoking. Medibles can be made at home, and they are easily purchased at most legal marijuana dispensaries.

Since marijuana can now be identified as specific strains, as an Indica, Sativa, or hybrid, and also lab tested for the level of THC and CBD that the specific strain produces, today’s medibles can easily be measured for their potency and effect. Common strains include White Widow, Grand Daddy Purple, OG Kush, Northern Lights, and so on.

If you are thinking about partaking in marijuana medibles for the first time, be sure to not overdo it – some people have reported that eating marijuana was too intense for them, while others claim little to no effect from eating cannabis.

Featuring recipes submitted by fans of the facebook fanpage, The Marijuana Cookbook will overview exactly what the ingredients are and how to use medible recipes to help you medicate – whether it’s breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a late-night snack.
