  • How long will the effects of weed brownies last?

    Cannabis edibles like these pot brownies are ingested the same way as all food. The thing about this method of ingestion is that the effects can take up to 2 hours to occur, as the cannabinoids like THC are not absorbed into the bloodstream until after the edible is in the stomach as only then is the lining exposed to the elements.

    Once 2 two hours have passed, it is safe to assume that the current effects will be the most you should expect, which is what makes it the perfect time to assess the situation and decide whether or not you might want more. Once the effects kick in, they can last for up to 12 whole hours, so it’s a good idea to avoid activities like driving as you might be impaired for quite a while.
