Smoking vs Edibles—Which is Right for You?
When it comes to using marijuana, two of the most popular methods that people consider are smoking and consuming edibles. We offer both through our cannabis delivery service, but it’s important to know the differences between the two when you’re placing your marijuana delivery order. Whether you’re considering switching to a new method of consumption or you’re new to the world of cannabis altogether, there are key differences between smoking and edibles that you should be familiar with.
Start Low & Slow with Edibles
Anyone who’s tried both methods of marijuana consumption can tell you that edibles are an incredibly different experience to smoking. Since the THC is absorbed through the digestive tract rather than entering the bloodstream through the lungs, it takes longer to feel the effects of edibles. Many first-time users make the mistake of consuming additional doses after 20-30 minutes because they don’t feel anything. However, it can take up to an hour to begin feeling the effects of edibles. Make sure that you start with low doses of 5-10mg THC and wait one to two hours before consuming another dose.
How They Affect Your High
- The high from edibles can last up to 6 hours or more due to the delayed process of absorbing and metabolizing the THC.
- Smoking weed will give you immediate effects, but the high will also dissipate much more quickly.
- Smoking results in a lesser chance of over-consuming since you can feel effects in real time.
- Professionally manufactured edibles will have better dosing control than homemade products.
- Edibles help users get the high or wellness benefits they’re seeking without the long-term health concerns associated with smoking.
Which Should You Try?
The vast majority of marijuana users are seeking a specific experience when consuming cannabis, whether that’s heightening creativity or aiding sleep. It’s generally understood that sativas will energize you and indicas will sedate you. However, most scientists agree that there is no drastic difference between indica and sativa. Instead, use each strain’s cannabinoids and terpene structure to best predict the effects it will have on you. Your high can also be affected by factors such as biological tolerance and method of consumption.
