Crafting the Best Cannabis Edibles: How Do Edibles Work?
Let’s start at the beginning: With the cannabinoids, a family of natural compounds including THC and CBD. As you likely know, THC is the cannabinoid responsible for the cannabis plant’s distinctive psychoactivity. While smoked or vaped cannabinoids are processed fairly quickly by the lungs, when we consume cannabis edibles they’re processed by the stomach and the liver instead.
This means that the effects come on slower—in most cases after one to two hours—and are typically more powerful compared with smoked or vaped cannabis. And it’s one reason our delicious P&B Kitchen Watermelon Chili and other gummies contain 5mg of THC per serving. For most of us, that’s enough to impart comfortable psychoactivity without being overwhelming.
The same goes for many of our chocolates, including our smooth and uplifting P&B Kitchen Salted Almond Dark Chocolate Bar. Made with Fair Trade CertifiedTM chocolate and fresh-pressed, solventless rosin, it’s designed for whole-body wellness wrapped up in a blissful and well-balanced feeling.
How long do edibles stay in your system? Because each of us is a little different—and because our metabolisms are influenced by factors such as age, prior cannabis experience, and recent food intake—there’s no one simple answer. But research suggests that you may feel the effects for up to six hours or longer, so plan accordingly (including refraining from driving or other potentially harmful activities).
Best Cannabis Edibles for Sleep: Introducing CBN
Can cannabis help us get a better night’s rest? Some researchers believe the cannabinoid CBN works in tandem with THC and CBD to help ease us into sleep. So when we were formulating our CBN Sleep Releaf Pomegranate Dark Chocolate, we asked a group of over 90 participants to report their own experience with CBN for sleep.
On average, they reported falling asleep 20 minutes faster than without it. What’s more, many participants reported that they awakened the next morning feeling refreshed and with little or no side effects such as grogginess. If you’re craving a decadent and sleepier bedtime ritual, we’d love for you to give our Sleep Releaf Chocolate a try.

Whichever of our tasty edibles you choose, one thing stays the same: Because we don’t think there’s any reason to interact with potentially harmful chemicals, we make our solventless edibles using cannabinoids extracted by gentle heat, pressure, and pure filtered water. The result? A scrumptious sensory experience designed to help you feel better, laugh harder, and enjoy more.
