TKO Edibles is a medical cannabis edibles brand that focuses on potency, consistency, taste, and patient satisfaction! We are known for our essential baked goods: TKO Edibles Dark Chocolate Bar, TKO Edibles Brownie, TKO Edibles Peanut Butter Cookie, TKO Edibles Snickerdoodle Cookie, TKO Edibles Chocolate Chip Cookie, and TKO Edibles Milk Chocolate Bar.
TKO Products is one of the oldest and most recognized cannabis brands in California. Our vision is to use our passion for quality, potency, and flavor to deliver the very best edibles, concentrates, vaporizers and cannabis-infused products on the market.
Being established in 2011, initially, ‘TKO Edibles’ was created for dispensaries that we personally managed when the clinics were forced to close we began soliciting our baked goods to other clinics.
TKO now includes a dedicated team to maintain, produce, and grow our business even further.
What we discovered as clinic managers, edible consumers, and finally as producers of edibles, is that there is a need for consistently potent products with a good price point. One of the biggest complaints from clinic owners is that edible products were ‘inconsistent in potency’ and unreliable when it came to deliveries by the vendors.
With the new rules for the legal cannabis market changing the maximum THC content allowed in edibles to 100mg, TKO is still formulating products for our former customers who have higher THC tolerance levels. Our baked goods, brownies, and cookies, will be the same size as before and come with a template to portion the product to the THC size that’s right for you. If you can handle 100mg, you will need to eat only one TKO cookie, instead of 10 of the competition’s cookies. Calories matter!
Our classic brownie is an award winner. At the 2014 Kush Cup, it won 1st place for Best Edible.
Unlike smoking cannabis, eating it will make your high last an exceptionally long time. When THC is ingested orally, it passes through the liver before moving on to the bloodstream. In the liver, it is metabolized to 11-OH-THC. This may be one explanation for the fact that the psychoactive effects of edibles are stronger and longer lasting than smoking.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR EDIBLES TO KICK IN?
At a very basic level, everyone’s body is different. That’s why it’s difficult to state definitively how THC is going to impact a given consumer. While five milligrams of THC might be enough to glue one person to a couch, 100 milligrams might be the dose of rocket fuel needed to get another person out of bed. And while one person might feel the effects of an edible 30 minutes after eating it, someone else might start feeling high two hours after consuming.
One of the most common mistakes novice cannabis consumers make when dabbling with edibles is not giving your body enough time to metabolize the laced treat before assessing whether you should eat more. It’s hard to know sometimes because it can take anywhere between five minutes to two hours for an edible to kick in. The onset depends on a few factors: what type of edible you’re consuming, your metabolism, how much you’ve eaten that day, and your surroundings.
The best advice is to err on the conservative side: start small and wait two hours. Or “start low and go slow,” to use a canna-cliche. Depending on how much you’ve eaten that day — and how soon after eating you consume an edible — will determine how quickly you feel high. So if you’ve eaten a big lunch with lots of carbs, it might take closer to two hours to feel the effects of an edible, regardless of how many milligrams it contains. If you decide to pop an edible first thing in the morning, it’s likely you’ll feel it closer to the 30-minute mark. If you eat an edible after eating a solid salad, you’ll likely feel the magic around the 45 to 60-minute mark.
POTENTIAL HEALTH BENEFITS OF TAKING TKO EDIBLES
TKO has many medicinal benefits and has been used to treat various ailments throughout history. Edible marijuana products are often used to treat conditions, such as chronic pain, cancer-related symptoms, and anxiety. THC is one of over 100 active compounds — known as cannabinoids — in marijuana. THC is the compound responsible for the psychoactive properties of marijuana products, including edibles, that may induce feelings of euphoria and relaxation
Additionally, these products may significantly reduce pain and muscle spasms, relieve nausea and vomiting, enhance sleep quality, and improve depression and anxiety.
In fact, pharmaceutical companies manufacture oral preparations of marijuana-derived treatments, such as Sativex, which is an oral spray prescribed to treat pain and muscle spasticity.
DOWNSIDES OF TKO EDIBLES
The main issue with edible marijuana products is that it can be very difficult to determine an appropriate dosage. Concentrations of THC vary widely depending on different factors, such as where the product was made and the users tolerance to edible weed.
The combination of the highly variable THC concentration and the long latency period of edible marijuana products makes them very easy to unintentionally overconsume, which can lead to unwanted symptoms, such as paranoia and impaired motor ability.
As earlier mentioned, ingesting THC instead of smoking it often takes at least two hours to fully kick in, but the intensity of your high will in part have to do with how large of a dose you ate, as well as what your tolerance is.
Those who overdo it tend to feel their marijuana high on another level, with most of the regular effects of smoking ramped up to a ten.
Aside from the increased confusion, loss of coordination, and paranoia you may feel, you can gain an intense headache and even start hearing things. Chronic marijuana users even can experience symptoms of psychosis. If you are experiencing a new onset of psychosis symptoms, you should consider this an emergency and go to the nearest ER or call 911.
