We’ll be blunt: You’re not going to hear us complaining about our job. At least not when it involves testing the incredible (and dangerously tempting) edibles that hit the shelves seemingly every day here in Lake Forest Park. From classic brown sugar to tangy apple to the unbeatable combo of sea salt and chocolate, there’s a bumper crop of cannabis caramels in stock right now.
As with all edibles, a few words of caution:
- When you consume a cannabis edible, the THC is processed through your liver as opposed to your lungs. Because of this, the high you experience may be more intense and long-lasting compared with smoking or vaping cannabis products.
- In addition, the onset time—the delay between consuming the cannabis edible and feeling its effects—can be quite long, up to two hours. Be sure to wait at least two hours before consuming another, or risk being a good deal higher than you want to be for far longer than you want to be.
- These cannabis caramels are designed to be appealing, but not everyone can differentiate between cannabis edibles and regular candies. If you’re around children or anyone else who shouldn’t be consuming cannabis, be very sure to store them safely out of reach.
- Finally, we find that storing these cannabis caramels in the refrigerator can help extend their shelf life, as will wrapping them in a light-resistant container, whether it be the original packaging or aluminum foil. Note: This isn’t the best solution for fresh flower; for tips on that subject please read our article on keeping your flower fresh.
