The edible form of cannabis is typically used for relaxation.  However, if too much is eaten, the user can experience a sudden onset of the “high” including dizziness, significant lethargy, and somnolence. While the relaxation component is useful for some medical conditions, the onset takes 1-2 hrs compared to smoking which takes effect in minutes.
