What Is A Medical Marijuana Edible?
Is is when you mix food products with THC and or CBD. It effects you differently than smoking and vaping as it give you more of a body high tan a traditional head high. It also takes a lot longer for you to feel something as the on set of action could be up to 2 hours where smoking and vaping is 30-60 seconds. You also have to account for bio availability and how your liver might metabolize the edible. Bioavailability measures the capacity of the body to put THC to use. For an edible to work, it has to first pass through the body’s primary detox organ, the liver.
It is important to pay attention to how much THC is in an edible as well as how long the potential “high’ will last. Since it’s absorbed through the digestive system it could take even longer to process through so you may want to allow an additional 2 hours on top of the 2 hours on set of action.
Therefore, if you have taken an edible and do not feel the effects right away, wait it out first, and then determine if you would like to take a larger dose. How much you’ve eaten, your metabolism and more can influence how long it will take before you feel the health benefits of the marijuana edible.
