Cannabis oils and edibles

What are cannabis oils and edibles?

Cannabis edibles are food products that are made with either cannabis or cannabis oils. They are used as an alternative to other ways cannabis is consumed such as smoking or vaping.

Is it safe to consume?

There is a significant chance that non-combustible cannabis (e.g. oils, edibles, drinkables) may be safer for your lungs than smoking it. However, due to the delayed effects, the potential risk for greater impairment is higher. It is important to understand how each non-combustible may affect your body and mind.
