So, grab a seat, jot down some notes, and let's dive into the fascinating world of cannabis edibles!
What are Edibles?
Edibles are consumable food or drink items, like brownies, candy, gummies, sodas, teas, etc., infused with cannabis extracts or concentrates containing THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and/or CBD (cannabidiol). In Canada, legal edibles have a maximum amount of 10mg of THC or CBD per package. They are an increasingly popular alternative to smoking cannabis and provide users with a discreet and convenient method of consumption.
How Do Edibles Get Me High?
When inhaling THC, it enters your bloodstream directly from your lungs. However, edibles take a different and slightly more complex route, which is why it may take longer for their effects to be felt. Here's a quick breakdown of the process:
- The edible is ingested and broken down by stomach acids and enzymes.
- The THC is absorbed by the lining of your stomach and taken to your liver.
- In the liver, THC is transformed into 11-Hydroxy-THC, a more potent compound that can cross the blood-brain barrier more easily than inhaled THC.
Do Edibles Get Me Higher Than Smoking Cannabis?
It depends on the product's potency and your overall cannabis tolerance. Due to the digestive process and 11-Hydroxy-THC's potency, the effects of edibles may appear stronger and last longer than those of smoking cannabis. As a result, it's crucial to start with a lower dosage and gradually increase it based on your personal experience and comfort level.
Smoking vs. Edibles: What's the Difference?
The main differences between smoking and edible consumption of cannabis lie in their methods of consumption, onset times, and duration of effects. Smoking or vaping cannabis offers instant effects that typically last for a couple of hours, whereas edibles deliver a slower onset (usually 30-90 minutes) resulting in a longer-lasting high (4-8 hours).
