Three Important Things to Know About Consuming Edibles
Consuming edibles can bring a different image to mind than smoking, and maybe you’re a little bit more uncertain about how they’ll affect you. Consuming cannabis in an edible rather than smoking will change your experience, but there’s a science behind it that can be broken down to minimize your uncertainty. If you’re looking for a marijuana delivery service to start trying out edible cannabis products, Lucky Farms cannabis delivery is an ideal, safe way to do so.
1. What happens in your body when you take an edible?
Things travel through your lungs much faster than through your digestive system, which is why many report staying high much longer after consuming edibles than after they smoke weed. Like smoking, you can start to feel the effects within a few minutes – but with edibles, the THC levels take hours to drop off and won’t fully exit your system until your digestive tract eliminates them. Because the marijuana is passing through the digestive system before it hits your bloodstream, factors like your metabolic rate and how long it’s been since you’ve eaten can impact the way the edible you’ve taken affects you as well.
2. How long do edibles stay in your system?
Everyone processes cannabis a little differently, but generally speaking, the high from taking an edible will last an average of six to eight hours. The THC, however, will stick around much longer – it’s a fat-soluble substance, which means it can still be in your system for over 36 hours. If you’re used to smoking, this is a crucial distinction to note, as the THC from a joint will generally only last around three days. If you’re looking for a high that will leave minimal evidence behind (particularly on an upcoming drug test), you’re better off with another method of consuming cannabis.
3. Are edibles safe?
The short answer is “yes” – if you use them correctly. Many people get tripped up because they equate taking an edible to smoking a blunt when the two couldn’t be more different. If you’re just starting, start small and figure out your limits before you start increasing your dosage. Note that the high from an edible can take a while to kick in, so if you don’t feel it within a few minutes, do not take another one. Overconsumption is a significant way people go wrong with edibles; take your time, and you’re much more likely to have a pleasant, enjoyable high.
Most importantly, choose edibles from a place that clearly lists THC content, so you know exactly what you’re getting.
