Cooking with Medical Marijuana: What are Edibles?

An edible is a product (either home made or produced commercially) that contains cannabis or cannabis extract as an active ingredient.

They are snacks, foods, or beverages which contain many of the beneficial compounds of medical cannabis, including CBD and THC, as well as other active compounds. Consuming edibles are an excellent alternative for patients who cannot ingest via smoke, vapor, etc.

Edible cannabis products come in many forms, including:

● Cookies
● Brownies and other baked goods
● Chocolates
● Hard or chewy candies
● Sodas
● Coffee and teas
● Alcoholic beverages
● Sauces or dressings
● Energy drinks

See Also from MMTCFL:

“The oral delivery method includes anything that can be eaten or otherwise administered via the mouth. While cannabis edibles have risen in popularity (and creativity) in recent years, the oral delivery method encompasses more than edibles alone. 

Today the options within this category are nearly endless—everything from cannabinoid-infused drinks to THC-rich capsules is available. In other words, there’s sure to be something that works for everybody. “

Materials from the Webinar

“Cytokines are signaling proteins that ultimately recruit inflammation to happen. Cytokines will trigger specific immune cells to release inflammation or actually even reduce inflammation, given the right circumstances. […] CBD actually modulates the cytokine production.”
