Consuming too much cannabis all at once can cause temporary adverse effects, known as cannabis poisoning. It's easier to get poisoned when you consume cannabis (eat or drink) than when you inhale cannabis (smoke or vape). The effects of food depend on the dose a person takes. The effects usually increase as the dose increases.
However, consuming too much cannabis through edible products is easy to do and can cause adverse effects, such as nausea and vomiting. When it comes to labeling, more must be done to ensure that consumers are better informed about how foods affect the body and that they know how to use them safely to avoid problems such as involuntary “euphorizers” or “euphorizers” that last longer than expected. Edibles are cannabis-infused foods or beverages that deliver cannabinoids such as THC and CBD to the body through the digestive system. Despite the potential promises of edible products for treating a variety of ailments, there are also dangers inherent to the use of food that pose challenges for users and policy makers.
Factors directly related to the oral route of food administration may contribute to this finding of a strong association between food use and excessive consumption.
