How to Make Edibles Kick In Faster

July 19, 2017

​Many people enjoy consuming edibles, but they may not like having to wait up to two hours to feel the effects. If you want to ensure your edibles kick in faster, follow these tips:

Look for Fast-Acting Edibles

Due to high consumer demand, some manufacturers have started to produce edibles that are designed to kick in much faster than traditional edibles. These companies are using innovative techniques to alter the composition of edibles and ensure that marijuana hits your bloodstream as quickly as possible. Talk to the budtenders at the Denver dispensary you visit to find out if these products are in stock. Learn how fast-acting edibles are getting people high at lightning speeds.

Empty Stomach

If you want edibles to kick in faster, consume them on an empty stomach so they can enter your bloodstream quickly. However, this is never advised for people who have not consumed edibles before. If you are new to consuming edibles, then eat a full meal before your first time to ensure you do not experience an intense, uncomfortable high.

Buy Drinks

Consider drinking your cannabis instead of eating it if you want the high to kick in faster. Liquids pass through your digestive tract much faster than solid foods, so they should hit your bloodstream quicker, too. There are countless different marijuana-infused beverages on the market, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one that sounds appealing to you at a local dispensary.

Increased Metabolism

If you have a fast metabolism, your body will digest the edible faster and you will experience the effects of a high more quickly. Therefore, it may be a good idea for frequent edible consumers to speed up their metabolisms so they have a more enjoyable experience with edibles. However, this is not a quick fix. Increasing your metabolism involves committing to living a healthy lifestyle. It’s possible to slowly speed up your metabolism over time by working out on a regular basis, eating healthy, and getting enough sleep every night.

Drink Caffeine

Research has shown that caffeine can give your metabolism a boost, so drinking a caffeinated beverage as you consume an edible could be enough to temporarily increase your metabolism. Drink a glass of green tea or a cup of coffee as you enjoy your next edible to see if it helps speed up the digestion process so you can feel the high effect faster.

Consider Alternatives

If you’re unhappy with the amount of time it takes for an edible to kick in, you may want to consider exploring other options the next time you visit a dispensary. For instance, tinctures are cannabis extracts that will quickly hit your system if placed underneath your tongue. This is a great alternative for people who don’t want to wait for edibles but don’t want to smoke cannabis either.
