Are you new to the world of edibles? Welcome! As fun as exploring the world of Cannabis-infused foods is, it can also be daunting to learn about every term, product, and possibility.
In this blog you’ll discover topics related to edibles — more specifically what they are, how you can consume them and how to keep a safe environment. Obsessed with it all, sharing our knowledge is our way of welcoming you into our brand, the products we offer and why we do it all.
Let’s dig in!
Edibles are the short term we use for Cannabis-infused edibles. These products contain cannabinoids that you consume to feel high, more relaxed, or even more focused.
Edibles contain either one or both of marijuana’s active ingredients: THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol).
Even though you can infuse virtually any food item with Cannabis, you’ll most commonly see sweets like gummies, chocolates, hard candy, brownies, space cakes, or cookies.
Is eating or drinking Cannabis better than smoking?
This is one of the most commonly asked questions about edibles, and the truth is that the jury is still out. Let us explain.
Even though there are no studies that prove that smoking Cannabis is harmful, there are certain concerns about the effects it can have on your lung health. In contrast, there aren’t proven associations between edibles and lung health or cancer risk.
Therefore, you may want to go with edible Cannabis as an alternative to smoking — even though long-term health implications of consuming edibles are still unknown.
Are edibles legal in the United States?
There are a lot of myths about the legality of edibles, but the answer is a lot simpler than you may think.
When Cannabis-based (or infused) products are under the 0.3% limit, they are in the same legal category as any other full spectrum CBD product and can be sold throughout the United States.
Are edibles safe?
The effects of edibles can vary from person to person depending on quantity consumed, however, there are no proven correlations between edibles and undesirable side effects.
Are edibles cheaper?
How much you pay for edibles will depend on the product, quantity and place of purchase. Much like any other food item you buy at the store, there are different price points. Generally speaking, the higher the concentration of THC, the more you’ll pay.
Whether you decide to buy edibles or smoke cannabis, we recommend doing your research and finding out how much you’ll get for your purchase. Sometimes a higher initial cost might end up being more cost-effective in the long run.
Are edibles Sativa or Indica?
You can buy edibles that are made with Sativa, Indica, or both. In general, edibles that are infused with Sativa are associated with an energetic, invigorating feeling, while Indica is believed to have a more relaxing effect.
Why try Cannabis-based edibles?
If you’re new to the world of Cannabis — and even if you aren’t — edibles are a great way to discover new flavors and food combinations that make you feel good.
When taking edibles, you’ll experience the effects of Cannabis for a longer time, making them more enjoyable for those who want to feel relaxed for a few hours.

Why try Cannabis-infused beverages?
Much like edibles, Cannabis-infused beverages have gained popularity as they mimic the feeling of sipping on alcohol … but without the headache and negative side effects.
Some beverages, like High Spirits, are built with nanotechnology that allows you to feel the effects of Cannabis much faster, making them the perfect addition to a hot Summer soiree.
Where can I buy edibles and beverages?
You can visit your local dispensary or simply purchase online! Remember that when buying online at TrojanHorseCannabis.com you’ll need to use AgeVerify to confirm you’re over the age of 21.
What should I know before I try an edible?
There’s not a lot of preparation involved before you consume an edible or crack open a can of a Cannabis-infused beverage. However, we do recommend starting slow and feeling the effects of Cannabis as they come.
Remember — everybody is different and you’ll want to know your limits before diving in.
