Joint vs. Edible. Which should you use?
Written by Redacción Mota Radio on 5 April, 2021
When it comes to choosing a method to get “high” with your Mary Jane the options you can choose many, from vaporizers, joints, bongs, concentrates, edibles, tinctures, and stop counting.
Each of these forms of consumption that we mentioned offers you a different experience, but which one to choose? Well, in this post we will focus on talking about joints and edibles so that you can choose one of them.
Which absorbs THC faster?
When you smoke your joint, the body absorbs the inhaled marijuana through the lungs and the THC reaches your brain almost instantly, so it is not strange that you start to feel high in a few minutes, contrary to edibles.
When you ingest your cannabis food your body absorbs it through your digestive system, which can take quite a long time, so you will have noticed that the effect takes much longer to manifest, between approximately 30 minutes to 2 hours.
If you feel like making some delicious cannabis brownies or ice cream with marijuana, keep in mind to start with small doses and wait for the effects, you don’t want to experience a bad trip.
How long does each effect last?
When it comes to duration of effect, edibles come out on top. With this form of consumption the effects take a while to be felt but when they kick in you can fly off into space for several hours. Unlike when you smoke your Mary Jane, the effects tend to wear off much faster.
Which is more potent?
This is perhaps the question that interests you the most, which of the two forms of consumption hits harder? Well, many users claim that edibles provide a much more potent and intense effect compared to smoking.
