As a growing number of states are becoming more open to marijuana consumption, more users are given the option to use cannabis to address the symptoms of their diseases. Smoking is one of the more popular ways of using the herb, especially for first-timers, but this method carries a negative stigma. The act has been tied with negative health impacts for so long that it turns away people who want to live a healthier lifestyle.
But smoking is only one of the many ways of using the herb; the tips and buds of marijuana, after all, are not the only useful parts of the plant. The entire plant itself can be used to produce concentrates like oils and butters which, in turn, are used as ingredients in various cannabis-infused products. In fact, many cannabis consumers use edibles and marijuana-infused recipes to manage their health issues. Ingesting cannabis, apparently, allows the user to maximize the benefits of the herb without experiencing drawbacks to one’s health.
But how exactly do edibles affect the body?
Ingested marijuana is processed by the body differently compared to marijuana that is smoked or applied topically. Smoking is one of the most common ways of using marijuana, and it is typically done using joints or blunts or with the help of implements like bongs or pipes. The smoke produced by burned marijuana is inhaled and taken into the lungs. Then, the cannabinoids from the plant travel through the blood stream and are absorbed by the brain. This entire reaction happens in only a few minutes, so the effects of smoking marijuana can be felt almost immediately.
Topically applied marijuana products, which usually come in the form of creams, oils, and patches, are absorbed directly through the skin. The cannabinoids in these products bind to the endocannabinoid receptors near the skin, bringing about localized benefits like focused and faster pain relief. Human skin has a low absorption rate, so marijuana products often need to be applied liberally to the area before effects can be felt.
Edibles, on the other hand, go through a rather circuitous route before one can feel their effects. First, the edible has to reach the stomach and get metabolized by the liver, a process that takes considerably more time compared to simply smoking marijuana. Once it reaches the liver, the THC component is broken down into a smaller compound called 11-hydroxy-THC, which is more bioavailable or more easily absorbed by the human body. This process results to a different kind of reaction compared to what a user can expect from smoked or topical marijuana products.
