As a result, many products contain much more THC than what is labeled and people who consume them may be left unprepared by their strength and their long-lasting effects. 4.Edibles are food products that contain cannabis. They can help relieve pain and anxiety, prevent seizures, and help control weight, although more research is needed. Consuming too much can cause adverse effects, including panic attacks.
The effects of food depend on the dose a person takes. The effects usually increase as the dose increases. However, consuming too much cannabis through edible products is easy to do and can cause adverse effects, such as nausea and vomiting. Overdosing is another risk when it comes to edible cannabis products.
In addition, the symptoms of an overdose of edible products can often be more severe than the symptoms of an overdose from smoking cannabis. However, edible products present their own risks, including increasing the risk of accidental ingestion or overdose. The effects of foods may not show up until 3 hours after ingestion, and there is a risk of overdose if people do not carefully limit the amount they consume. The popularity of marijuana edibles has increased recently with the legalization of marijuana in many United States.
However, many people who consume these foods do so without fully understanding the risks involved. Like any other drug, marijuana edibles can cause short- and long-term side effects. They also carry the risk of overdose if someone takes them too much or if they are more potent than expected. Long-term cannabis use can also affect mental health.
While research is still under development, studies suggest that it is associated with an increased risk of developing psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia. It can trigger or worsen the psychotic symptoms of schizophrenia, such as hallucinations, paranoia, and psychosis. Scientists believe that this can occur in people with a genetic mutation that makes them more susceptible to the effects of cannabis.
