There are numerous ways to medicate with marijuana: vaping, dabbing, smoking and ingesting. Today I want to focus on the method of ingesting and the most popular way is by consuming edibles. The overall effects from edibles can vary from person to person and can result in a more intense, longer-lasting high than smoking. After consumption, it generally takes anywhere from 45-120 minutes for one to start feeling the effects. The Higher Path takes pride in its edible selection as we have a variety to choose from: hard candy, cookies, brownies, gummies, drinks, etc. As you continue reading this article you will learn more about the Top 5 edibles we carry.

How open are you about your cannabis use? Now that 29 states have legalized cannabis either medicinally or recreationally, this formerly taboo topic is finally starting to become normal—however, many patients still shy away from addressing it with their family. If you’re considering having “the (cannabis) talk” with your family this holiday season, here are a few things to keep in mind:

For many people, part of the appeal of marijuana is its rumored aphrodisiac-like qualities. THC has been proven to elevate mood and arousal, as well as physically stimulating sexual activity, however, not all users have such a positive reaction. Despite the fact that this substance has the ability to enhance pleasure and reduce inhibitions, much in the way that alcohol does, it may also have some undesired effects on a person’s libido.

Also, because sex is more than just a physiological process, drugs may impact your psychological and social experience of sex in unpredictable ways.

In a state that has come to be known as the herald of medicinal marijuana, it may come as a surprise just how illegal cannabis still is in other parts of our country. This story is one among thousands that illustrates that stark contrast between state laws. The fact that someone could still face decades of prison time in the United States for using cannabis to treat a fatal disease is absolutely unfathomable to most who live on the east or west coast of the U.S. However, for those that dwell in the middle of our continent, marijuana prohibition is still in full swing. Taking some of the “heart” out of our “heart-land”.
