The most delicious cannabis experience

Fun, flexible & flavorful

Cannabis-infused foods and beverages, aka edibles, have come a long way from the days of “magic” brownies. Today, you can find a range of delicious options with precise dosing and tailored effects for any occasion.

Edibles are reliable, doseable, and portable, and come in a variety of delicious formats to suit every taste, like artisanal chocolates, mints, and gummies. For new cannabis users, edibles can be a great way to get started and familiar with this plant and its effects.

Why choose edibles?


What to expect from edibles


Edibles produce a more sustained effect than other methods of consumption. This is because, when eaten, the cannabinoids (like THC + CBD) are metabolized and converted by the liver, which is not the case with smoking or vaping. The result is a whole-body effect that stays in the bloodstream for a longer period of time.

Always start small with 2.5MG THC or less and wait 2 hours for the full effects before consuming more. Kiva’s precisely-dosed products make it especially easy to find the dose that delivers your desired experience.

It will take 15 minutes - 2 hours to feel the effects from your edible. Your exact wait time depends on your metabolism, height, weight, prior cannabis experience, and how much food is already in your stomach.

Effects will last roughly 4-6 hours, though unusually high doses can last for more than 24 hours. Be mindful of your tolerance and increase your dose in small increments to avoid an overwhelming experience.

The low dose lowdown

Consuming cannabis in small, subtle doses is called microdosing. This approach empowers you to tailor your dose with remarkable precision and accuracy, instilling confidence in your edibles experience.

Microdoses help many users feel the mood-balancing benefits of cannabis with minimal psychoactive effects. This means less impact on your focus and energy levels, and more opportunities to integrate cannabis into your daily life.

Tips for enjoying edibles


Kiva Website Icons Set MECH Safety

Safety

Always avoid driving, operating heavy machinery, or other risky activities when under the influence of cannabis.

Kiva Website Icons Set MECH Protection

Sharing

Never give cannabis to someone without their knowledge (besides, why waste your edibles on someone who may not appreciate them?).

Kiva Website Icons Set MECH Storage

Storage

When storing, keep your edibles cool, safe and sealed. Always keep your edibles out of reach of children and pets.

Kiva Website Icons Set MECH Mixing

Mixing

Never combine alcohol with cannabis. Alcohol increases the concentration of THC in the blood and can result in nausea, dizziness, and anxiety.

Kiva Website Icons Set MECH Eating

Eating

The effects of edibles can be especially intense when consumed on an empty stomach. Avoid an overwhelming experience by having a non-infused meal or snack before your edible.

Kiva Website Icons Set MECH Overconsumption

Overconsumption

If you happen to over-ingest cannabis, keep hydrated and stay calm until the effects begin to dissipate, usually within six hours of consumption.
