The Different Types of Marijuana Edibles You Will Find at Green Collar Cannabis.
There are many types of cannabis edibles but they can be mainly divided into three separate categories.
Edibles that can be consumed through gastrointestinal uptake (eating and digested via the stomach), those that can be digested orally through saliva and hybrid edibles that can be digested through a combination of the stomach and saliva.
The most popular type of edibles are those that are consumed through the stomach; this includes cookies, brownies, snacks, pill capsules, and many other different food products. Cannabis food products that are consumed through the stomach take longer to affect the body (sometimes it takes over two hours), but the upside is that it has a longer lasting effect (up to 8 hours of pain relief or buzz).
The edibles that are consumed orally can affect a cannabis user almost instantly but they tend to wear off faster (within 2 to 3 hours). Edibles that you keep in your mouths such as lozenges, tinctures, and suckers are included in this section.
Items such as chocolate bars and cannabis-infused drinks are in the hybrid category because they are meant to be absorbed both in the stomach and mouth.
Since most marijuana edibles are cooked with heat, many of the inactive cannabinoids such as CHDA and THCA, are converted to CBD, THC, and CBN. This process, known as decarboxylation, works to produce an ideal situation for many disorders including autoimmune disorders, chronic pain, nervous system disorder, nausea, and insomnia.

There are many different types of marijuana drinks including, Sodas, Coffee, Tea, and Juices. Cannabis Drinks are refreshing, healthy and offer a more discreet way of consuming cannabis. Ezra Pryor of the American Chemical Society’s Cannabis Chemistry Subdivision states that drinking THC is just as effective as those found in other traditional types of edibles. It all has to do with the chemistry of how cannabinoids are manipulated in order to combine it with liquid. The cannabinoids are banded together more effectively to infuse with the liquid you get a nice dose with every drink.
Marijuana Edibles are one of the most popular products at Green Collar Cannabis, including Caramel Apple by Phat Panda, Milk Chocolate Bars by Evergreen Herbal and Truffles Apple Crisp by Green Labs. As we said before, consuming marijuana edibles takes more time for the user to feel the effects because it has to be processed by the stomach. The beneficial part of edibles is that it releases the THC in waves so the high can last up to 8 hours. Care should be taken when consuming cannabis edibles because a lot of consumers underestimate the potency. Also since the dosage can affect people with different body weights those on the slimmer side should watch their intake carefully.
Tinctures are one of the most underused ways of enjoying marijuana. Weed tinctures are very versatile because of their stealth nature and the cannabis high hits you faster than a cannabis food product. It only takes a few drops under the tongue and you will start to feel the effects in minutes.
Tinctures are a great way to consume marijuana because unlike edibles you feel the effects quickly. And on top of that, you don’t have to worry about finding a place to smoke. The effects of tinctures will vary according to what type of plant it was made from. Also besides tinctures that are high in THC there also those that are high in CBD and CBN. Here at Green Collar Cannabis, we carry a variety of different types of tincture’s including Awake Spray Tincture by Ethos Extracts, Indica Spray Tincture, and Beauty Sleep Water Tincture.
