Nowadays, there are so many different ways to ingest medical marijuana. Marijuana cookies and other edibles are great ways to ingest medical marijuana without having to actually smoke a joint. But, does eating marijuana cookies affect you differently than smoking it? The short answer is yes it does. Keep reading to learn why and how.
5 Ways Eating Marijuana Cookies Impacts You Differently Than Smoking Medical Cannabis
- Marijuana Cookies Are Typically Stronger Than Smoked Cannabis.
This because when you eat marijuana, the THC is metabolized by both the stomach and the liver, which leads to a more intense high.
- It Takes Longer To Feel The Effects Of Marijuana Cookies Than Smoking Weed.
When you inhale weed, the THC goes directly to the brain. It doesn’t need time to metabolize in your stomach and liver. So, the effects come on faster. Whereas, when you eat a marijuana cookie, it can take a good 30 minutes to two hours to kick in.
- The Effects Of Marijuana Cookies Last Longer Than Smoked Marijuana.
It may take you longer to feel the effects of your marijuana cookie than smoking a joint, but when you do finally feel those effects, they will last longer. In fact, you may feel the effects of your marijuana cookie for 6 to 10 hours. This is great for someone who needs medical cannabis for pain management.
- Marijuana Cookies Typically Deliver A Smaller Concentration Of Cannabinoids To The Bloodstream.
There are more than eight cannabinoids in marijuana, and the most commonly known are THC and CBD. Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds secreted by cannabis flowers. When you ingest a marijuana cookie, you’re only getting about 10% to 20% of the THC to your blood. But, when you inhale marijuana, you get between 50% and 60%.
- Marijuana Cookies Are Actually Healthier Than Smoking Medical Cannabis.
Sure cookies tend to have a lot of sugar in them, but they are actually healthier than smoking weed. While smoking medical cannabis can help a lot of medical conditions, at the end of the day, smoke is harmful to your lungs and has a lot of long-term health issues associated with it.
