Cannabis edibles are products that you can eat or place under your tongue. When delta 9 THC is consumed, it is absorbed in the body through the digestion process. The type of edible you consume will determine how quickly your body will absorb it and how quickly you can feel the effects.
Cannabis edibles like rice cereal treats or cookies will need to be swallowed to begin feeling the psychoactive effects of the THC. This process typically takes between one to two hours for the effects to be felt. Once the high begins, it will last for three to five hours for most users.
The other type of edibles are gummies or candies that partially dissolve in the mouth before being swallowed. This causes the delta 9 THC to be absorbed in the body quicker. The effects can be felt as quickly as 15 to 30 minutes with gummies or candies that partially dissolve in the mouth.

Delta 9 THC is considered more potent than delta 8 THC. This generally causes the effects of delta 9 THC to seem stronger and more intense. The effects of a delta 9 high depend on the dosage that you take. If you take more delta 9 THC than the recommended dosage, you could experience adverse effects.
Users who take delta 9 THC products may experience the following effects:
- Increased appetite
As we mentioned, these effects are typical for most users when they take the recommended dosage. Using more delta 9 THC than is recommended may cause you to have adverse reactions. These can include hallucinations, paranoia, panic, and feeling overwhelmed.
Taking a higher dosage of delta 9 than is recommended can result in a high lasting longer than five hours with the effects feeling more intense than normal, virtually ruining the experience you are trying to achieve. That’s why we always recommend taking only the recommended dosage of delta 9 THC at a time.

Delta 9 THC is detectable in the urine, blood, and hair. The method in which you will be drug tested and the frequency in which you use delta 9 THC products will determine if the delta 9 THC will be detected in your system.

If you take more than the recommended dosage, the results may last longer or become more intense, which can ruin the experience.
