How Do Edibles Work?

People have made cannabis edibles for decades. Now, the world is interested to learn more about them, and see what kinds of delicious cannabis-infused creations are being made – like our ice cold artisan cannabis coffee and tea drinks, for example!

Edible cannabis products are popular among patients with gastrointestinal issues, people who want to medicate but would prefer not to smoke, and now, new consumers who want to be discreet about their consumption. But exactly how do edibles work within the body to create their long-lasting effects?

Some easy science education can help you feel confident about edibles in no time.

The Blood-Brain Barrier

Just as marijuana smoke works its magic after it enters the bloodstream, edibles must find a way to cross the “blood-brain barrier.”

When eaten or drank, THC actually starts to metabolize right in your mouth! The sublingual blood vessels are located under the tongue, and can absorb many nutrients directly. The rest of the THC passes through the GI tract, and eventually the liver, where it’s dispersed throughout the bloodstream and to the brain.

A Different High

The euphoric high and body sensations produced by cannabis edibles can actually feel much more powerful than the effects you get from smoking.

Usually it’s quite relaxing, and can help patients go to sleep with ease. However, with an edible, it’s quite possible to dose too high on the THC and feel uncomfortable. Hence the importance of starting out very small and working your way up, especially if you’re a beginner to using cannabis!

We include a dosage indicator on our standard-size bottles, to ensure anyone can use what they’re comfortable with.


So, are you ready to try an edible that will blow your mind?

Therapy Tonics & Provisions iced cannabis beverages are dosed from 25mg all the way up to 120mg THC, making them a great choice for everyone looking to experience something new. Each one is made with real coffee or tea, as well as all-natural traditional ingredients and flavors.

By in Group Therapy Comments Off on Our Vanilla Caramel Cannabis Coffee

Our Vanilla Caramel Cannabis Coffee

Seven years in the making, our flagship product laid the foundation for all those that followed. This drink has a long history with us, a history that dates back to before Therapy even existed. The original formula finds its roots with another company, one that Therapy’s founders owned 60% of. That original sophmoric formulation, created by another, was never shared with the majority owners of that company (that would be us), even when great opportunities to move forward were presented. At that point, the third party basically took the money and ran, leaving us shit out of luck.

So after several years of feeling sorry for ourselves, and trying in vain to recover our investment, we basically got called out by my wife. “You are a Biochemist… You worked with a coffee roaster for 8 years… you owned a cafe that specialized in artisan coffee… stop complaining and figure it out yourself!” That was a eureka moment for us, and we spent the next several months working on a new formula. That formula, born in my kitchen,  went through aproximately 17 iterations, followed by dozens of production and quality-related improvements.

Now, we are happy to say that we have created the best tasting MMJ drinks available today, manufactured in our state-of-the-art production facility. Our Vanilla Caramel Cannabis Coffee remains the trailblazer and we have built all of our other flavors on the lessons we learned the hard way  – going all the way back to my home kitchen. Even now, over 7 years later, we are still refining the process, looking for ever better sources for our ingredients, and constantly improving our techniques.

Cannabis and Arthritis

Jeremy Kossen, writing for Leafly.com wrote this insightful article on Marijuana as it relates to Arthritis. After years of abusing my body in the world of extreme sports, I am starting to feel the long-term effects of the cumulative damage I have done to my body (i.e calcification and arthritis in certain joints has been the result of said abuse). Obviously, the idea of using Marijuana instead of Opioids for curtailing the symptoms associated with pain and inflammation has been one of the driving forces here at Therapy. Research seems to support the notion that Marijuana, unlike Opioids actually may stop the auto-immune response while activating the anti-inflammatory response. I read this to mean that, rather then simply masking the pain, Marijuana is actually addressing th source of it. As it relates to arthritis, I’ll let Jeremy tell the story…
