We’re taking a look at some of the common types of Cannabis Edibles and exploring some of our favorites found at Ivy Hall.

Cannabis Edibles at Ivy Hall

“Cannabis edibles” are a form of THC that you can consume by way of eating. Cannabis edibles can have a variety of dosing options for the novice consumer, and more experienced. Cannabis edibles are known to take longer to kick in because the process of edible metabolization takes longer than the inhalation process. Once you swallow an edible, it travels through your small intestine and is absorbed by the liver, then enters the central blood circulation (let’s get high!) and that is when the party begins. Peak effects of THC can be felt 1-2 hours after eating.

Edibles are a discreet way to consume to avoid the smell of smoke, but may not kick in as soon as some would like. As of late, we have stocked our shelves with edible gummies that have a faster onset allowing one to anticipate THC activation much sooner.

Types of Cannabis Edibles

Types of Cannabis Edibles

Cannabis-Infused Gummies

One of the most recognizable cannabis edibles are gummy treats. Gummies have a wide range of doses which make them perfect for anyone!

Edible gummies are usually made with lecithin, gelatin, and/or pectin. So, if you are Vegan,have any food sensitivities or allergies, please do not hesitate to ask a budtender at any of our locations to verify the ingredients for you!

Cannabis-Infused Chocolates

Another delectable cannabis THC treat, comes in the form of chocolate, the best of both worlds! Cannabis-infused chocolates are just as vast as gummies when it comes to dosing and effects. Some brands of chocolate will come individually wrapped and others will come in a bar that you can break a piece off (ex. Kit Kat) for a bite of dosing perfection.

Cannabis-Infused Beverages

Cannabis-infused beverages have been on the rise as of late. These beverages offer low dose drinks from 2mg, 10mg, 25mg, all the way up to 100 milligrams! The beauty of it all is that you are in control and have the option to sip or mix, using the dosing instructions on the bottle.

Cannabis infused beverages will also kick in sooner because of how quickly they can be absorbed by the bloodstream. There are even CBD options that one can grab, for a relaxing vibe or sensation; equivalent to the final sips of wine at the end of a long day. THC-infused drinks offer an exceptional alternative to those looking to venture away from alcohol. You can still achieve a great buzz without the worry of a hangover in the morning!

Cannabis-Infused Tablets

Tablets serve as another discreet way of consuming THC. They are known to be more popular amongst medicinal users, however, for people who want to avoid sugar, tablets are an amazing alternative for that too.

For people who are just beginning to dabble with THC-infused tablets and want to start slow, the tablets come in a 2.5 milligrams microdose, so you have control over your dosing, go at your own pace, and decide what type of dose makes you feel the best.

Tablets also have different cannabinoid makeups. In conjunction with THC, there is also CBN, CBD, and CBG.

Latest Trends in Cannabis Edibles

Since cannabis’ recreational legalization, the efficiency of cannabis edibles has improved immensely.

THC-infused beverages and quick technology edibles, have soared in popularity due to their quick onset times. Their effects can be felt within 5-15 minutes, depending on the type of edible. What makes THC drinks so awesome and appealing is that they utilize nanotechnology which shrinks the THC molecule, allowing it to be more water-soluble.

Drink powders have recently popped on the scene allowing anyone to turn their favorite beverage into a cannabis cocktail. Drink powders are made of cannabis coconut oil, with the use of an emulsifier such as lecithin or soy, and a starch, such as tapioca or potato, the product can dissolve evenly into any liquid.

Live Rosin Infused Gummies are potent gummies that pack an extra punch with concentrate infusion. Live Rosin is formed by flash freezing the cannabis plant after it has been harvested. By using gentle heat and compression, you can produce live rosin hash oil and achieve the quality and origin of the strain. Cannabis compounds, like terpenes and flavonoids, are more preserved through this process, and ensures the high will be a fully maximized experience for the user.

WYLD Gummies

One of the most popular cannabis-infused gummies at all of our locations is the Wyld brand. Hailing from Oregon, the Wyld brand is a certified carbon neutral company. The Wyld gummies are made with real fruit ingredients and all natural flavors for an authentic, “true-to-fruit” flavor in every bite. Each Wyld gummies flavor comes as a 10 pack in a variety of doses and THC infused cannabinoid combinations. Wyld has mastered the art of variety by having something for every type of cannabis user and anyone can find a flavor and dose that suits their needs best.

CBD Flavors

For those looking for a CBD heavy product, the Strawberry Wyld flavor is the first one that checks that list. This 20mg CBD: 1 mg THC option is perfect for folks who are looking to relax without the intoxication of THC. Also, a great option for post-exercise or any kind of muscle inflammation. You can take it with another THC-heavy gummy to experiment with finding what kind of CBD:THC ratio works best for you, either recreationally or medicinally.

The Peach flavor starts to close the gap between the ratio of CBD to THC, where the ratio is 2:1 with 10mg of CBD and 5mg of THC per piece. A perfect option for those who want to start off at a small dose, not get too bogged down to do anything, and still go about their day.

Next, the Pomegranate flavor is a 1:1, an even balance of both cannabinoids with 10mg of CBD and THC in each piece. This creates a nice and balanced high. It is relaxing and bright. Offering an easygoing buzz, allowing you to wind down easily into whatever activity you chose to do.

Sativa Flavors

The Raspberry flavor and Sour Apple flavor are both 10mg each of THC, they help you get your day started the right way. The fresh fruit flavors add a nice bright twist to start the morning off right.

Hybrid Flavors

Wyld caters to those who want an “anytime” high or a “feel-good” high. The Huckleberry (aka Chuckleberry) was a mainstay in the early days of Wyld’s debut in Illinois; but over the last few months, the Tangerine flavor has increased in popularity too. Tangerine has a rich terpene profile consisting of limonene, linalool, alpha-pinene, and beta-pinene. A terpene profile such as this offers a bright, uplifting high, keeping the consumer calm and focused, what a wonderful combination!

While the Huckleberry has a deep, berry flavor, the Tangerine offers a tangy, citrus option. Regardless of which flavor you choose, the high will be as enjoyable as the bite.

Indica Flavors

The Sour Cherry flavor is crafted with botanical terpenes and real fruit. They allow you to unwind after a long day with its tart punch. It offers a tasty treat right before you take off into relaxation.

The Marionberry is a fruit that was crafted for the Pacific northwest, having this flavor on the Wyld line of edibles is indeed a nod to Wyld’s roots as a company founded in Oregon back in 2016. The Marionberry proves to be another favorite at our stores for its rich flavor and promise of a chill evening.

Sleep Aids

Wyld offers great options for those who need help falling asleep and staying asleep at night. The Elderberry flavor was the first gummy to help one prepare for sleep with a “restful and sleepy” effect, while simultaneously boosting the immune system. The new Boysenberry flavor has a cannabinoid profile consisting of CBD, THC, and CBN in tandem with the terpenes: linalool, myrcene, beta-caryophyllene, and terpineol. The makeup of this gummy offers the consumer an all-over body high, with a calming and relaxed mood. After having a Boysenberry gummy, one can enjoy a satisfying night’s sleep.

Different Cannabinoids

The marijuana plant is made up of a variety of compounds that work in harmony with THC to have amplified effects on the consumer. The harmonious nature of these cannabinoids is called the “Entourage Effect” where the non-psychoactive cannabinoids create a synergistic effect that amplifies the full benefits of the marijuana plant.

One unique flavor of the Wyld brand is the Pear flavor. The Pear flavor has 10mg of THC:10mg of CBG. CBG, or Cannabigerol, is the “mother of the cannabinoids”, and it is the strongest cannabinoid for shrinking cancer cells. It is also helpful for focus and is perfect for appetite, especially for people who have GI or stomach issues. The Pear option is perfect for those looking for a mentally, stimulating, and balanced high. It is one of the tastiest flavors of the Wyld brand and keeps our guests wanting more.

The Blood Orange flavor has a ratio of 10mg THC:10 mg CBC., or Cannabichromene. Cannabichromene is another non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is beneficial for pain and anxiety. It introduces an uplifting, creative high that one can go out with and chat the night away! It has an amazing botanical terpene profile consisting of limonene, valencene, beta-caryophyllene, alpha-pinene, and beta-pinene. This type of terpene profile is sure to create an overall great mood allowing anyone to take on the day with a smile as bright as the sun!

FAQs About Cannabis Edibles

Address common questions that people have about cannabis edibles, such as dosage, effects, how long they last, etc.

Should I eat food before I consume edibles?

Edibles are safe to consume on an empty stomach or full, however, the effects will be different. When you consume an edible on an empty stomach, the high will hit sooner and harder. When you do have food in your stomach, it will take longer for the high to kick in, but it will be a longer lasting buzz that can last several hours.

Should I eat 1 or 2 gummies?

A good rule of thumb for gummies is to start “low and slow”. You’ll want to start with one gummy and wait 45 minutes to an hour before consuming another. It’s a good rule of thumb to see how one feels first, so when you start to feel the effects of the edible, it will not be an overwhelming experience. It is important to be honest about your tolerance so you can dose according to what your body can handle.

How do THC drinks work?

THC beverages operate through nanoemulsion technology. Nanoemulsion helps reduce THC molecule in size so it can blend homogeneously with the liquid it is infusing. Along with this, the bioavailability of THC is strengthened allowing it to be directly delivered into the bloodstream. This short absorption process allows the effects of THC-infused beverages to be felt within 15-20 minutes and peaks after 45 minutes.
