These days, the perception towards cannabis or marijuana have changed since many States and other Countries have legalized it; it has now become widely accepted with a less negative association, and many viewed it now for its medicinal and recreational purpose.
One of the usual ways of consuming it is by lighting it up like cigarettes, others vaporized it while some are eating it by mixing it to some foods to make it edible for healthier options.
To those who want to try cannabis but doesn’t want to smoke, digesting it as cannabis edibles can be an option, but taking it this way often regret some especially those who tried it for the very first time.
For cannabis to produce its effect, its components have to be burned for about 800Celsius. With that amount of heat, cannabinoids will be burned and converted to delta-9-THC, which is the component that brought users to a euphoric state or high feeling.
What stated above is the usual way of consuming it. User burned it, inhale the smoke straight to their lungs, then it travels to their bloodstream and finally to their brain, resulting for quick effectiveness that occurs within just a few minutes and normally lasts for two to three hours.
Does it have a different effect when eating it?
After consuming cannabis edibles, the consumer doesn’t feel its effect instantly compare to when it is inhaled. Although most packages of it indicated its duration until its effect, most are ending up consuming more since it is fun to eat and others do in an attempt to chase the high quickly.
Taking cannabis edibles has different effects due to the process of preparing it and the way your body metabolizes it. Typically, the effect’s onset takes place slowly.
Metabolization process usually takes one to two hours to complete. The digestion process converts cannabis edibles in your body to delta-9-THC and a higher potent type which is called 11-oh-THC, these will then travel to your bloodstream until it reaches your brain.
This resulted in a stronger high experience due to the presence of both said components, not only that, but the effect is also reported to last longer since the supply is slowly and continuously flowing into the bloodstream.
Cannabis edibles can be a great way to skip the toxic chemicals that smoking provides, but one must keep in mind the downside of it. it is hard to be out of your mind for such a long period of time, so when consuming cannabis through eating, remember to take less and have patience while chasing the high.
