Best Cannabis Edibles
Let's get real here: you smoke joints, you get high. You like it but sometimes that good feeling either doesn't last long or it's the same old same old. Well did you ever know that eating pot will get you just as high, if not better than smoking up? For reals. Eating marijuana can give you a longer lasting high than smoking it. Eating THC gives a more psychedelic effect than smoking it. The pharmacokinetics of marijuana is absorbed by the body differently in both the cases. Also eating pot is a healthier alternative to smoking. Smoke is harmful to lung health.

Smoke from marijuana combustion has been shown to contain many of the same toxins, irritants and carcinogens as tobacco smoke does. For consuming edibles, you can skip the smelly and harmful lung compromising smoke while enjoying a much greater high! These are some of the many delectable treats out there that will sure to make any pothead both happy and fulfill any of their munchie cravings.
How to Break the Stoner Stereotype
So, what is ‘the stoner stereotype’ exactly? Lazy, lethargic, always late, has uncontrollable munchies, can’t be relied on and so forth. You get it, Harold and Kumar types. The issue is that many important people in your life who you might not want to think of you as a stoner (such as business owners, investors, potential partners, clientele or even your parents) might judge you according to these labels. You don’t want that, trust me! I’m not saying all of them think badly about weed or weed smokers, but for those who do, we need to help change their perceptions. Steve Jobs, Carl Sagan, Bill Gates, Michael Phelps, the list goes on, are all recognized as successful individuals who use/d marijuana recreationally without any 'real' problems – apart from a few run-ins with the law. The stigma attached to pot smoking needs to change, and that’s why I’m here. I’m here to tell you exactly why that stigma is, well, just a stigma and nothing more than that. Hopefully after reading this, it will help you break the stoner stereotype and not just be smart about it, but act it too!
