What Are Edibles?
What Are Edibles?. Edibles are cannabis-based food products. They come in many different forms, from gummies to brownies, and contain either one or both of marijuana’s active ingredients: THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol).
With the legalization of marijuana, these are increasing in popularity. CBD-only edibleshave even been found to help treat ailments such as anxiety and chronic pain. As an added benefit, don’t pose risks to the respiratory system — unlike smoking marijuana.
