How To Choose Edibles
If you’re new to edibles, you may be wondering how to find the right ones for you. There are a few things that you can do to help choose the best type of edibles. First, be sure to visit your local licensed dispensary. Products sold in shops are lab-tested for their cannabinoid content, terpenes, and safety. When purchasing from a dispensary, you can feel confident knowing you’re buying a safe product.
As you scan the edibles menu or browse the dispensary’s selection, consider your personal tastes. Are you more of a chocolate person, or do you like gummies? Maybe you like the sweet, fruity flavors of hard candies. Read the labels of each product that catches your eye. Take a look at the THC and CBD content and the potency of each serving. Some are high THC, while others are high in CBD and contain little to no THC.
