Some aren’t aware that there is this immense difference in the ways any of us are able to consume cannabis.
Whether you vaporize, smoke, or go with edibles, there’s plenty of options out there for you.
Vaping is currently very popular as it creates no smoke, so it’s considered a relatively “safe” way to consume your cannabis. The thing about smoking or vaping is that inhaled cannabis has the THC going directly to the brain. Compared to going through the metabolic process, the effects will come and go much faster than edibles would. When it comes to dosing, smoking or vaping is the easiest way. You will be able to pace yourself, as the effects that you feel have a rapid onset. If you choose to go with edibles however, you will ingest the cannabis through the liver and the stomach instead. In turn, THC – the active ingredient in cannabis – becomes 11-hydroxy-THC. This identifiable metabolite is unquestionably effective in crossing the blood-brain barrier. That means the “high” retrieved by edibles is much more extensive, lasting for hours and creating a more relaxing sensation. Many claim that using high doses will create nearly this psychedelic-tier of “highness” where many people would panic and become discouraged from future attempts. That’s why it’s best to start small and work your way up. Your body will slowly adapt, and build a tolerance in time for cannabis. Over time, the body will truly grow to appreciate the benefits and perks of using cannabis.
