It can be quite daunting to not know where to start, especially if you have no information. Use this list in order to help you understand how to use edibles.
How Do Edibles Interact With Your ECS System?
When you eat edibles, your body releases certain chemicals that interact with the Endocannabinoid system. It is a system in your brain and body that helps regulate mood, memory, pain, and sleep.
Cannabis or THC-rich foods like chocolate, the cannabinoids get absorbed into your body and this interaction helps in pain relief and appetite stimulation. They bind themselves to the endocannabinoid receptors that are responsible for all these functions in the body. This is why edibles are popularly used for providing relief from ailments such as anxiety, depression, pain, lack of appetite, and even menstrual cramps.
How Long Do Edibles Last?
Edibles are a type of food that can be consumed orally and can be found in the form of gummies, candies, drinks, and many more things. They are usually not digested like other foods and take about 8 hours to properly go through your digestive system. This means that edibles can last for quite a long time. These are also more intense than smoking a joint or smoking cannabis in a bong. There are two extracts that are used for making edibles. One is THC and one is THCP. THCP is found in the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the Cannabis Sativa plant. Even THCP gummies are quite long-lasting, with only one piece giving you a 4-6 hour effect.
When you consume edibles, it is important to follow the instructions on how long they last. The effects of edibles last for a couple of hours depending on the type of edibles consumed. Make sure that you eat only a small piece at a time so that you can see how it affects your body.
