That stated, everybody is totally different, and even the same body can really feel a different effect underneath identical circumstances a day later. For the reason that more nuanced effects of cannabis merchandise come from the flower used to make them, I can't tell you whether or not a brownie will make you sleep better than, say, a cannabis soda. But I can supply some steering—with the assistance of a chemistry audit from Zoe Sigman, education coordinator at Farma—when navigating the Oregon edibles market to seek out what works best for you.

Caramels EXAMPLE PRODUCT: Nelson & Co. Organics Carefree Caramels.

The heavy whipping cream, brown sugar and real butter make for a soften-in-your-mouth consistency that doesn't style like cannabis extract.
