Cannabis has an immense fan following not only in the US but all around the globe because of its therapeutic nature. There are several ways to use cannabis but today; we will just focus on the main differences between inhalation and ingestion, that is, between smoking and eating cannabis.

Time And Bodily Reaction

First, inhaling THC via a joint produces rapid effects, between 30 seconds and 10 minutes, the brain and nervous system are directly affected by smoke. Doesn’t matter if it is a pre-rolled joint pack or a freshly prepared.

On the other hand, the reaction time is longer for space-foods. An ingested mouthful first passes through the stomach. The breakdown of foods with THC leads to the formation of the molecule called 11 –OH –THC. This molecule has the particularity of being able to move in the blood to the brain. It can bypass the blood-brain barrier of the brain, which in particular prevents toxins from accessing the brain. 11-OH-THC first enters the bloodstream before affecting the nervous system, 30 minutes to 2 hours after ingestion. This is why it is not advisable to take several portions of edibles before feeling the effects of the first.

Quantity And Variety Of The Product Is Important

A joint, depending on the consumer, requires between 0.1 g and 1 gram of cannabis. The tweed, pre-rolled joints contain at least 0.5g. That gives you a great hit. The convenience of a joint can be appealing as long as the quality is there. According to the manufacturing methods, the quality of the ingredients used, the CBD cannabis can be of more or less good quality.

If the strains of cannabis Sativa, Indica or hybrid play an essential role during inhalation, this is not the case for eating.

The effects of cannabis on the body depend on the variety used. Indica is considered a weed that promotes relaxation, while Sativa is exciting. This difference between the types disappears in the creation of CBD infused food. Indeed, mixing with oil or butter affects the terpenes. Terpenes are its molecular agents that make each weed have its peculiarity and its unique smell. Not all is lost, but it is impossible to know what is lost in the mixture. In addition, weed also loses substance when mixing the ingredients and cooking.

The Effects

Cannabis lovers know pretty well what effects they feel with the consumption of a joint. The results may differ for people depending upon the material - but still predictable.

On the other hand, CBD edibles can cause all types of effects, without it being possible to really predict the impacts after consumption. From laughter to amnesia, to euphoria or excitement, home cooking produces variable results. Even the high-tech industries specializing in the CBD-food trade cannot easily determine which dosage causes what effects.

The United States is also struggling to find a way to regulate these cannabis foods after having noted an explosion in hospitalizations due to these foods. But, it is healthier for those with an illness that prevents them from inhaling cannabis, or tobacco by combustion.

How Much Time It Takes To Digest

After 4 to 5 hours of effects, cannabis is digested, but some people feel effects for more than 24 hours. Gourmands can experience a big blow of the bar. Inhaling cannabis usually causes little fatigue after 2 to 4 hours.

To Wrap Up...

The two methods of consumption, whether for medical patients or recreational users in countries where it is authorized, are not harmless. However, it’s better to test with a small quantity to find the right consumption method adaptive to your health. It is the only way to decide whether you should go for the pre-roll joint box or the CBD infused cookies or candies.
