When do edibles kick in, anyways? 10 minutes? 20 minutes? 1 hour?
The thing is, it really depends on the person. For some people, it can take up to two hours to feel the full effects of an edible.
First-time users should definitely start with a low dose (we’re talking 5-10mg) and work their way up from there. This is why Baked has become one of the most trusted brands in the Thailand edibles space.

How to Make Edibles Work Faster
Wondering how to make edibles work faster? You’ve come to the right place!
Increasing the speed at which edibles work can be helpful for a variety of reasons. Maybe you’re in pain and you need relief fast, or maybe you’re just impatient (we’ve all been there).
Here are a few tips on how to make edibles work faster:
1. Eat a high-fat meal before consuming your edibles.
Fat will help to increase the bioavailability of THC, meaning that more of it will be absorbed into your system. This means that you’ll feel the effects of your edibles more quickly.
2. Grind your cannabis finely before adding it to your recipe.
The smaller the pieces of cannabis, the more surface area there is for the THC to be absorbed into the edible. This will also help to increase the bioavailability of THC and make your edibles work faster.
3. Use a water-soluble cannabinoid like CBD isolate.
CBD isolate is a pure, isolated form of CBD that dissolves easily in water. This makes it ideal for use in edibles, as it will be absorbed more quickly by your body.
4. Store your edibles in a cool, dark place.
This will help to preserve the THC content of your edibles and make them last longer.
5. Consume your edibles on an empty stomach.
If you have food in your stomach, it will take longer for the edibles to be absorbed and for you to feel their effects.
Keep in mind that these tips may not work for everyone, as every person’s body is different. Start with a low dose and see how your body reacts before increasing the number of edibles you consume.
How Long Do Edibles Last?
So, what can you expect when edibles kick in? How long do they last?
The effects of edibles can last anywhere from 2 to 10 hours, depending on the person. The thing to keep in mind is that edibles tend to peak around 3-4 hours after consumption, so it’s best to start with a low dose and see how you feel.
If you’re new to edibles, it’s best to wait at least 2 hours before consuming more. This will help you to gauge how your body is reacting and prevent you from consuming too much.
Risks & Side Effects of Edibles
Now that we’ve answered the question “when do edibles kick in?”, let’s talk about the effects of edibles.

1. Increased heart rate
2. Dry mouth
3. Red eyes
4. Sleepiness or fatigue
5. Paranoia or anxiety

Other Ways to Consume Cannabis
If you’re interested in trying other ways to consume cannabis, here are a few options to consider:
Smoking is the most popular way to consume cannabis, as it’s quick and easy. However, smoking can be harmful to your lungs, so it’s not the best option if you’re looking for a healthier alternative.
Vaping is a great alternative to smoking because it’s less harmful to your lungs. Vaping also allows you to control the dosage of cannabis you consume, so it’s a good option if you’re new to cannabis or trying to titrate your dose.
3. Topical application
Topical cannabis products are applied directly to the skin and can be used to treat a variety of conditions like pain, inflammation, and skin conditions.
Cannabis suppositories are inserted into the rectum or vagina and can be used to treat a variety of conditions like pain, inflammation, and cramps.
Tinctures are cannabis extracts that are taken orally using a dropper. Those who take tinctures can control the dosage of cannabis they consume, making it a good option for those new to cannabis or trying to titrate their dose.
