Illicit Gardens makes a variety of fruit-forward, cannabinoid-rich weed gummy options.

With the legalization of recreational cannabis in Missouri and other states nationwide, many people are turning to the convenience of edibles when seeking out how to fit cannabis into their lifestyle. Lots of folks who don’t want to smoke or vape but do desire the benefits of cannabinoids love the discretion and long-lasting effects of different types of THC edibles.

However, with all the types of weed gummies and other edibles on the market, it can be overwhelming to decide which edibles are right for you. Confused about which edibles to opt for? Keep reading! In this blog post we’ll discuss the different types of edibles and their effects, and help narrow down which types of gummies or other edibles might be right for you.

Types of Edibles and Their Effects

There are so many different types of THC edibles available in Missouri. Most edibles are infused with a THC distillate which gives them their powerful effects. While a wide range of dosages are available on the market, a typical dose of THC found in edibles is 10 mg / piece. High-dose edibles may contain 20 mg or more of THC per piece.

Some edibles contain other cannabinoids along with THC, like CBD, CBN, or others. Taking other cannabinoids along with THC may help tamper the psychoactive effects of THC, enabling you to enjoy its potential effects while maintaining your energy and focus. Other cannabinoids may have other benefits as well, such as potential anti-anxiety or anti-insomnia effects. Taking more than one type of cannabinoid helps provide the “entourage effect.” Cannabinoids work best as a team!

What are all the different types of edibles?

There is a huge variety! Lozenges or hard candies allow you to enjoy quicker effects since the THC can be absorbed sublingually, bypassing your digestive system. Other edibles that do need to be digested before effects are felt include cookies, crackers, chocolates, beverages, and more!

Nevertheless, the most popular type of edible continues to be weed gummies. When it comes to marijuana gummies, types include a wide variety of flavors, potential effects, and cannabinoid ratios. Gummies are quick and discreet to eat, and very easy to cut in halves or fourths if you want to microdose. Read on to learn more about cannabis-infused gummies!

Gummies FAQ

Still have questions about cannabis gummies? Check out our answers to these frequently asked questions:

Is a 10 mg edible too much for a beginner?

It depends what effects you are looking for, but if you have not taken weed gummies before, 10 mg will probably be quite a potent dose for you. If you are just starting out with edibles and would like to experiment with how THC affects you, starting with a dose of 5 mg or less is probably a good idea. It is very easy to cut a 10 mg gummy in half or fourths in order to do this.

Additionally, trying THC gummies that also contain CBD is a good way to minimize the psychoactive effects of THC while enjoying the potential benefits of both.

You can cut a 10 mg weed gummy into halves or fourths if you prefer a smaller dose.

What is a good mg for weed gummies?

As mentioned above, 10 mg of THC per piece is the most common gummy dosage, though the amount of THC varies greatly by gummy brand and type. The best dosage for you depends upon your desired effects.

While beginners should take less than 10 mg, experienced cannabis users or medical patients might prefer a stronger dose. If this is the case for you, Illicit’s High Frequency Gummies which contain 20 mg of THC per gummy may be a good option.
