Edibles for Sale in Massachusetts
Edible cannabis products, also known as edibles, are food products containing cannabinoids that are consumed orally. Edibles are made with cannabinoids added to offer an alternative method of cannabis consumption. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds in cannabis that affect the body and mind. The cannabinoid THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) produces the high sensation when added to edibles. The cannabinoid CBD (cannabidiol) does not cause intoxication like THC, but it is considered a therapeutic. Because of the way the cannabis is ingested, edibles take longer to take effect and the effects can last up to three times longer than smoking cannabis. Edibles include candies, baked goods, beverages and condiments.
