Cannabis edibles bc are a great way to ingest your THC. They come in a variety of forms like gummies, chocolates, or baked goods. These products contain high amounts of THC so they will give you a strong effect very quickly.

Edibles are the most popular edible bc products in Canada, with a large percentage of consumption among adults and teenagers. However, there is evidence that these products may increase the risk of unintentional pediatric poisonings in children. To investigate this, researchers looked at hospitalizations for cannabis poisoning in children ages zero to nine in Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia (exposed provinces) and Quebec. They analyzed data from 3 policy periods: prelegalization; legalization of dried flower, seeds, and oils only (period 1); and legalization with commercial edibles in some provinces and prohibited in others (period 2). They found that after the introduction of edibles, hospitalizations for cannabis poisoning increased 2.6-fold in Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia, while the rate only rose slightly in Quebec.

Health Canada is cracking down on some cannabis producers that erroneously classify their lozenges and chewable extracts as edibles rather than extracts. This allows them to sell packages that contain far more than the 10 milligrams of THC limit governing packaged edibles.

The federal agency has asked at least five companies, including New Brunswick licensed producer Organigram Holdings and Alberta-based Aurora Cannabis, to stop selling their ingestible extract products that exceed the THC limits. The regulator said the companies must review their packaging, instructions for use, and promotional materials to determine whether the products meet the definition of an edible.
