Many people turn to edible products when deciding how to use medical marijuana. Options used to be limited to brownies or cookies, but now there are myriad ways to ingest weed, including gummies, peanut butter cups, chocolate bars and even ice cream and lollipops. The advantages are that edibles taste great, you can precisely manage your dose, and the relief they provide typically lasts a long time. The downside is that it can take a long time for the effects to kick in — anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours. You’ll also need to make sure to keep your edibles away from children and pets.
