Shopping at the dispensary has allowed me to discover current cannabis options.
I like experimenting with alternatives and have found that consuming edibles is completely weird from smoking dried flower.
I always pay close attention to the levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) in the products I choose. The effects of each are particularly diverse. THC is the primary psychoactive ingredient in cannabis and responsible for the high sensations. Whether I smoke a joint or ingest a gummy, I can get that feeling of euphoria. There are a wide array of edibles that offer plenty of THC potency, including capsules, oils, tinctures, baked goods, beverages and candies. I love those occasions that include a balanced amount of CBD, because it elevates the therapeutic benefits. When I smoke or vape, the effects set in within minutes. This is due to the cannabinoids directly entering the bloodstream and lungs as I inhale. With edibles, the stomach first breaks down the food. Then the THC and CBD travels through the digestive system before finally reaching the bloodstream. Lt can take an hour before experiencing any effects, and edible dosage can be a problem for some people. Body chemistry, weight and metabolism rate impacts the intensity of effects. Two people can eat the same amount of an edible and react differently. When the effects aren’t felt instantly, people are tempted to eat more. I’ve learned that when I try a current type or strain of edible, I start with the lowest proposed dose. I then wait numerous hours before even considering consuming more.
