Our edibles are created by professionals in a commercial kitchen with a lot of love and attention to food safety and cannabis quality. Cannabis edibles affect every person differently. It is import to effectively titrate ones dosage to ensure safe and responsible use. Cannabis edibles are said to have a more deep and lasting body effect on a patient. Because it is ingested the effects can take longer than other forms of consumption. Cannabis edibles are non-toxic, but can make a person feel quite overwhelmed and sedated if overdone.
Are edibles safe?
Yes. Cannabis edibles, when made in a sterile and clean environment by trained professionals, are some of the most effective and safest medicines on the planet. They provide a high level of medicinal effects with little dangers of toxic overdose or death. Food-based cannabis medicines are also powerful and must be used responsibly with caution. Too much ingestion of cannabinoids can result in extreme effects that can make a person very uncomfortable, so please use with caution in a safe and familiar environment until understanding intake and dosage.

Understanding Compassion Packaging and Labeling
The Compassion edibles look in packaging and labeling are representative of the compounding pharmacy labeling that one might find in traditional medical markets. The goal is to provide a clean and sterile look with robust information and clear warnings. Our packaging is not meant to look colorful and attractive to those who are not medical cannabis patients. It is meant to look like a medicine, and is packaged in opaque packaging to avoid possible confusion and misuse.
All products have a product label telling what the product is, the ingredients, net weight, dry cannabis weight, and clear prominent warnings that the product contains cannabis. They also have a medicinal facts panel that informs them of safe use principles and product dosage recommendations and directions. A third product information sticker will contain the information for dating and batch number for that specific product. This labeling system is helpful to inform patients, promote safe use, and track products.
