In the middle of the 19th century in New York, the Gunja Wallah Company released “Hasheesh Candy” based on natural condensed fruit syrups, sugar, and hemp tincture. For 40 years, the candy had been advertised as “the sweetest stimulant” and gained huge popularity with the public. Hemp-based sweets are still being prepared in some parts of the world. Are they considered harmful or not? Let’s find out!
Hemp Sweets: What Are the Benefits?
Hemp sweets are not very difficult to make. In addition, they do not carry health risks like smoking, and they have stronger and longer-lasting effects. In modern conditions, many different desserts and hemp drinks can be made, which opens up new horizons for experimentation.
It is good to have sugar free Delta-9 gummies for two reasons:
- They are great when you’re really ready to go to bed. If it’s been a busy day, or you need to make sure you get a good night’s sleep before the big day, having cannabis gummies on your bedside table can be incredibly helpful.
- Incorporating gummies into your nightly routine can help you find a sleep rhythm that your body can enter, thereby creating a sleeping habit. Getting the right sleep habit is a great way to avoid sleep disturbances.
You can start by using gummies to sleep on the weekend. Especially if you practice social distancing and don’t walk a lot, this is a relaxing way to spend the weekend. Once you’ve done that, you can start experimenting with gummies during your work or school week. Just make sure you set an alarm and take cannabis gummies right after dinner. This will give you time to relax, calm down, and not oversleep the next morning.
THC Gummies: pros and cons
If you want to immediately relieve pain or restless thoughts before bed, consider including THC in your gummies. While not all Sativa-based gummies will get you ready for bed, they are often the best way to start your day. Beware of gummies made with energy strains, which can not only keep you awake but also enhance your anxiety, making it even more difficult to achieve the desired result.
First-time consumers of these sweets should start by experimenting with products containing 1 to 2.5 mg of THC to make sure they know how they feel after such gummies. If you then want to increase your THC dose, start experimenting with products containing 2.5 to 15 mg of THC.
Smoking or eating: what is the difference between using cannabis?
Most often, edible canna sweets are used for medical purposes. Manufacturers of medicinal cannabis products offer a huge selection of all kinds of sweets from jelly candies to tea, coffee, and even muffins containing cannabinoids. What is the difference between consuming cannabis in edible form and classic smoking?
When smoke is inhaled, cannabinoids enter the bloodstream almost instantly, passing through the alveoli. In the digestive tract, the process is slower, but the effect does not hit the head but comes gradually. Both options are good in their own way. For a quick achievement of the high effect, it is worth smoking, for medical purposes it is better to use “snacks”.
From a medicinal point of view, smoking is always more harmful than eating marijuana. This will definitely not harm your lungs. On the other hand, if you prepare food yourself, there is a risk of exceeding the dosage, as the amount of cannabis to eat is several times higher. Subjectively, hemp dishes can cause more euphoria, but smoking brings a relaxing effect.
What options to choose is entirely up to you. In the end, no one forbids you to try both options and alternate them.
Since ancient times, hemp has been used in cooking as a powerful appetite enhancer, a source of vegetable oil, and as a medication. It was noticed a long time ago that fragrant hemp seeds are very tasty with certain processing, and that adding them to sweets improves their taste. Feel free to check it yourself!
