Well, howdy there folks! Out here on the rolling plains and rugged mountains of Montana, we ranchers are known to live life a bit on the simpler side. We value the grit in our hands, the calluses on our feet, and the land beneath us. We’re known for our beef, wheat, barley, and now, well, would you believe it? We like a little homegrown as well. So, this cowboy’s here to talk to y’all about a thing or two on marijuana edibles, and how they’re bringing a new kind of gold rush to Big Sky Country.
First, a quick shout-out to our state laws. Ever since Montana saw the light and legalized marijuana for both medicinal and recreational use, we’ve seen quite a ripple in our humble lifestyle. Ranching folks have grown and harvested this ‘green gold’ right here in our backyards for years. So now, not only are we topnotch cattle-raisers and crop-growers, but we’re also among the finest marijuana cultivators in the nation.
That said, let’s lasso us some knowledge about marijuana edibles. Simply put, these are food or drink products made with marijuana or marijuana oils. Y’all might’ve heard of ’em in various forms like brownies, cookies, gummies, chocolates, and even drinks. But there’s a bit more to this rodeo than just snackin’.
You see, edibles aren’t just your regular marijuana in a tastier package. No, sir. They offer a different kind of ride. When you smoke or vape marijuana, the effects kick in faster, usually within minutes. But when you consume an edible, it takes a bit longer, often anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours. This is because edibles are absorbed through the digestive system before reaching your bloodstream. So, be patient, folks, and don’t overdo it thinking you ain’t feeling nothin’.
The intensity and duration of the effect also tend to be different with edibles. Generally, they offer a more potent and longer-lasting effect. So remember, like us Montanans say, “start low and go slow.” That way, y’all can enjoy the ride without getting bucked off.
One of the beauties of marijuana edibles is that they offer an alternative for folks who don’t care for smoking or vaping. You get all the benefits of marijuana, without the coughin’ or the smoke. Plus, edibles come in all sorts of delicious flavors and types. You can find everything from sweet candies and cookies to savory snacks and drinks infused with our Montana-grown marijuana.
Now, how about where to find these tasty treats? There’s a fair share of dispensaries right here in Montana that carry a wide range of edibles. You can walk into any one of ’em and find products. But as we all know, not everyone’s mom knows how to make a good biscut.
