Top 5 Objections to Edibles and Why They're BS
Earlier this month, a Toronto cop pled guilty to tampering with evidence after consuming a few too many seized edibles last year. Essentially, the cop ate too much, freaked out and did some pretty stupid things. When the “crime” was committed last year, it sparked a nation-wide conversation about edibles, how safe they are, and if people actually wanted them.
From where we’re sitting, the answer is a resounding “yes!”
Consumed correctly, edibles are the most enjoyable, safest and most efficient way to enjoy cannabis. There’s no combustion or inhalation which means no lung damage. And in case you didn't know, you lose a large percentage of THC to the smoke you don’t inhale when you do a J.
But all that doesn’t stop the squares out there from poo-pooing edibles. So let’s set the record straight on a few of their objections.
The high from edibles lasts too long
That’s only true if you consume too much THC. And unfortunately, most of what’s available in Canada today is WAYYYY overdosed. 10–20 mg/g of THC is the perfect amount to have fun tonight and be functional tomorrow.
Edibles make you gain weight
Again, that depends on what you eat and how much of it. We’d never claim our cookies are low in fat, but we can say that you’d only need to eat one to have fun. And if you can’t make room in your diet for one cookie, then you have bigger problems.
Edibles taste like eating weed
Hard to argue that point based on what’s available. But it doesn't have to be that way. We, for example, developed a proprietary process that removes the taste and smell of weed without compromising effect. Infused or not, Munchy Brothers cookies are the best tasting cookies you’ll ever have.
Edibles make people freak the fuck out
That goes back to dosage, and it’s just like anything other mind-altering substance. Two or three glasses of wine will put a smile on your face. Two or three bottles will put you face down in the middle of your dinner party.
Edibles are for stoners
Actually, quite the opposite. Edibles are for people who want to be discreet about their cannabis intake. No one has to know what you’re eating.
