Complexity Of Cannabis Edibles Actually Allows Opportunities Along With A Bit Of Confusion For The Consumer
CBD’s popularity means more people are willing to try it. Vaping is a very popular method of taking CBD, but more and more people are turning to edibles since it is more discreet and comes in convenient packaging. Edibles are more lung-friendly than smoking and edibles can be a vehicle for a more sustained high. The potency, duration, and timing of an edible experience can’t always be counted on. They are notoriously variable in their effects.
Two edibles, both with the same quantity of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, the main intoxicating ingredient in cannabis), can feel very different to a consumer. One may have milquetoast results, while the other hits like a truck and lasts for hours.
It is very difficult to investigate exactly what is behind that variability, both on the product side and the consumer side. The federal government still lists cannabis as a Schedule I drug, a classification that severely restricts access to the plant and its compounds for research purposes. Despite extensive research on edibles, there are large knowledge gaps for which we need more studies to understand it better.
Due to the way CBD interacts with our body, vaping is a relatively quicker way of seeing its impact while eating it could take longer but with the latter, one might experience the effects for a longer period of time as well. The timing and potency of the effect still varies depending on various factors making it hard to pin down anything. There is also that our body will absorb differing amount of CBD and THC based on how and what we consume. Since CBD does not dissolve in water, CBD products are developed by using butter or oil to be more effective. We need proper regulations so that products are designed to the standards established, allowing users to understand the dosage and its impact much better.
