An increasing number of weed users are turning to edibles to consume cannabis. Their safeness and ability to produce strong, long-lasting effects when correctly dosed has attracted many to edibles and products like it.
But how does it compare to other consumption methods like smoking in terms of potency? A person’s experience with edibles and the effects that they get out of them will ultimately depend on their approach and usage.
How THC Interacts with Your Body
Your body contains many cannabinoid receptors. The two primary receptors that interact with weed are CB1 and CB2. When cannabis is consumed, THC enters your body and eventually binds with the CB1 receptors. This connection is what allows you to feel high.
How Smoking Weed Gets You High
Out of all ways to consume weed, smoking can produce effects faster than many other methods. Smoking weed gives THC direct, unimpeded access to your bloodstream. Once in your body, THC can quickly find and bind with your CB1 receptors, leading to results almost immediately.
How Edibles Get You High
In comparison to smoking weed, edibles take longer to come into effect. Edibles don’t directly enter your bloodstream and must first pass through your digestive system. The amount of time this takes can vary, depending on factors like metabolism speed and what you ate before consuming your edible.
Once an edible kicks in, you’ll begin to feel a steady stream of effects that continues to escalate over the coming hours as your body processes the THC. These effects will usually last between 4 to 12 hours until wearing off.
Patience (and Dosage) Is a Virtue
Many edible experiences have turned disastrous because of a lack of patience or understanding of how long the process can take. Don’t expect immediate results when consuming edibles.
Eating multiple edibles in quick succession will cause a reaction that won’t be fun to deal with. Ensure an enjoyable edible experience with small doses between long breaks. Your patience will be rewarded when the effects of the edible eventually kick in.
