Sugar High

Sugar High

If you enjoy cannabis, or went to college, odds are you've tried a pot brownie. For decades stoners have loved infusing baked goods with their herb to create delicious desserts that also get you high. The brownie has effectively made it to the forefront of mainstream culture for edibles. So many films and television shows feature iconic scenes where characters have eaten a pot brownie or cookies and amusing antics ensue. But there's one aspect of the pot brownie that people often overlook.

Before the cannabis effects kick in, you need to digest that brownie. This can be delayed by several hours if you have a full stomach already or just digest slowly or when taken on an empty stomach the effects are felt sooner similar to medication or alcohol. If you eat your brownie with a large glass of milk to wash it down with it helps boost potency. This can also vary with each experience, causing a certain level of unpredictability. It's difficult to make plans for the night if you have no idea when the brownie will kick in. Imagine having a few drinks then waiting several hours for the alcohol to take effect. 

Since edibles became 100% legal, edible manufacturers like Zoots, Botanica Seattle, and The Goodship Co. have come forth with delicious, gourmet quality baked goods and chocolates in addition to brownies, that get you stoned. In addition, many of these manufacturers have also diversified their edible lines to include fruit-flavored lozenges, sodas, mints, and even dried fruit that go way beyond our expectations. These products contain just as much THC as other edibles on the legal market, and because they're not heavy baked goods, they'll usually hit you way faster.

If you aren’t up to eating or drinking an edible, one incredible edible innovation are sublingual oral sprays. A few sprays under the tongue sends the active ingredients directly to the bloodstream, which can start to effect you within minutes! Mirth Provisions, makers of the popular Legal Sodas, recently launch Drift. A minty, sublingual spray that brings a calming and clear-headed relaxation in a fraction of the time other edibles take.

Here at Green-Theory we have an array of delicious cannabis-infused brownies, cookies, and chocolates. But if you're looking for something a little different, we encourage you to explore our edibles menu further. We have so many options you've probably never even thought of. Like a gel that sends THC through your skin! But that's a discussion for another day...
