Europe and edible cannabis
In Europe, edible cannabis is becoming an increasingly popular way to consume marijuana, offering a discreet and tasty alternative to smoking or vaping. However, using edible marijuana requires a different approach than traditional methods of consumption. In this article, we’ll explore what you need to know about using edible marijuana, from how it works to dosage and potential side effects.
How does edible cannabis work?
Cannabis works by delivering cannabinoids such as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) to the body through the digestive system. When you consume an edible product, the liver metabolises the cannabinoids. Then it converts THC into a more potent form that can cross the blood-brain barrier. This leads to a more intense and lasting high than smoking or vaping. Dosing edible marijuana can be tricky because the effects can be unpredictable and vary from person to person. The effects of edible marijuana may take longer than other methods. This time depends on a variety of factors, including your metabolism, potency of the edible substance, and what somebody recently ate.
Europe’s market for edible cannabis
The European market for edible cannabis products is still in its early stages but is growing rapidly. This is due to the fact that more and more countries are legalising cannabis for medical or recreational use. In 2019, the European cannabis market was valued at €240 million, with edibles representing a small but growing segment of the market. However, the market should grow significantly in the coming years. Some estimates project a value of €3.2 billion by 2025. One of the main drivers of this growth is the growing demand for alternative methods of cannabis consumption. Smoking and vaping are still the most common methods of consumption. However, many people are turning to edibles as a more discreet and convenient way to consume marijuana. In addition, the medical marijuana market is also driving demand for edibles. Patients look for new ways to consume marijuana to relieve pain and other conditions. As more countries in Europe move towards legalisation, the market for edible cannabis products is likely to continue to grow, with new companies entering the market and established companies expanding their product lines.
As more countries in Europe legalise marijuana for medical or recreational use, the market for cannabis products, including edibles, is growing. Currently, there are several such production companies in Europe. Some of them are:
