The Best Types of Edibles
Sunday, Jun 3, 2018

To an outsider, it might be easy to assume that weed edibles are pretty much limited to pot brownies and cookies. But the reality is way more complex. In fact, edibles represent an entirely unique and massive galaxy within the universe of cannabis. Brownies and cookies might be the classics, but there are actually tons and tons of different types of edibles out there. Each different type of edible has its own different characteristics and uses. Here are the best types of weed edibles.

Covering the Basics: What Is An Edible?

Before we get into specific types of edibles, let’s define what we’re talking about more generally. For the sake of this article, we’re defining an edible as any form of cannabis that is absorbed through gastrointestinal uptake, oral uptake, or a combination of the two.

These methods of absorption are different from what happens when you smoke or vape. When you smoke or vape weed, the cannabinoids are absorbed into your body through your lungs.

But when you consume an edible, the cannabinoids find their way into your bloodstream either through your mouth and tongue or through your gastrointestinal system. This means that the different types of edibles actually include drinks, lozenges, tinctures, solid foods, and other substances.
