Florida is among the big states to have allowed the use of cannabis for medical use. While recreational use still remains illegal, medical cannabis has helped thousands of people, who needed marijuana for various health issues. If you are in Florida and need medical cannabis, there are some amazing state-licensed dispensaries that sell all kinds of products. From buds and concentrates, to edibles, you can order what works for you. Many dispensaries even offer online cannabis delivery in Florida, for which you must have your medical marijuana card and a valid ID.
In this post, we are discussing more on edibles about things that patients need to know.
Laws related to cannabis edibles in Florida
The cannabis plant has a bunch of cannabinoids, which are chemical compounds, of which only one -THC – is psychoactive. Most cannabis users are interested in two compounds – CBD and THC. When it comes to edibles, the state laws mention that the amount of THC shouldn’t be more than 10 mg for a single serving. In case of multi-serving edibles, the dosage of THC is restricted to 200 mg. If you are new to edibles, we wouldn’t recommend a dosage more than 5 mg initially, because edibles work in a very different way on the body.
Benefits of cannabis edibles
Note that cannabis is illegal for consumption in a public, but with edibles, you can choose to be discreet, although we don’t encourage or mean to ask patients to break the laws. Edibles are useful because the effects last much longer, but also take longer to set in. It is not like smoking cannabis, where you can feel the high immediately. Effects of edibles can take as long as 90 minutes to set in, depending on the THC content. Also, with cannabis edibles, you can be precise with your dosage in the truest sense. Note that edibles are not recommended for pets and young children.
Other things to know
If you have mood disorders, depression, chronic pain, or anything related to inflammation, cannabis edibles may help your condition. Start with a low dose and see how it works for you. Some people enjoy edibles more than smoking, and you can find products like gummies, candies, brownies, and baked products to choose from.
Ordering cannabis edibles from a licensed dispensary in Florida is easy. Just share your recommendation from physician and have your card handy. Your cannabis supplies will be home often within the same day.
