There are so many different types of pot products out there that it can be hard to settle on just one but each of them offers a unique range of effects and benefits to suit certain needs and preferences. The flower is by far the most popular and widely sold, a sector of the market that’s now being cast to the side as marijuana edibles take front and center stage.

Weed edibles aren’t the ideal choice for everyone but for these five different types of consumers; they could be the perfect euphoric solution.

1. Seasoned consumers who want more from the experience

A handful of marijuana gummies might seem to lack a certain something for long-time users who’ve grown accustomed to smoking or vaping flower, but there is no denying that they can pack a far more powerful punch. Some weed edibles can contain hundreds of times more THC than what can be found in any joint or bowl, an enticing prospect for those who are looking for a slightly more intense range of effects.

The sensations will also stick around on full blast for several hours instead of mere minutes, which means that you won’t need to take marijuana edibles anywhere near as often as you’d typically smoke. That makes them perfect for long flights, family dinners, or evenings in while binge-watching your favourite tv series.

2. First-time users

Though weed edibles can be potent and wildly intense, they also come in smaller doses that are really easy to measure out for consistency. They can go as low as 5mg of THC which is less than 1/3 of what you’d find in an average flower roll, which is why they can sometimes be just as useful for beginners as they are for more seasoned consumers.

3. Those who can’t stand the smell of cannabis

Smoking cannabis is a smelly task, with a pungent aroma that is known to linger as it sticks to hair clothing and anything else that it touches. Some consumers love to revel in the natural scents of the plant, but most would prefer to avoid it at least in certain situations, like those that require a bit more discretion. Weed edibles might have a noticeable green taste, but if you use them, no one will be able to smell what you’ve done.

4. Heath nuts

Smoking is by far the most popular method of cannabis use, but that’s only because it’s the easiest. As our access to cannabis and knowledge surrounding the adverse effects of smoking improve, the way that we use it is expected to evolve, which could be a driving force that brings edibles to the forefront of the market. Even though it hasn’t been linked to cancer or any other terrifying long-term conditions, inhaling anything isn’t good for the lungs, and that can be avoided with edibles.

5. Medicinal users

A small bag of marijuana gummies might not look like your traditional medicine, but it’s a great way to take advantage of the benefits that the plant has to offer without imposing any further risk to your health. Edibles are healthier than smoking, and with effects that can last a whole day through, they also decrease the need for frequent dosing, making them the ultimate choice for many medicinal patients.
