Marijuana-infused foods and drinks have been consumed for centuries, dating as far back as 1000 B.C. Traditionally used as medicine in ancient China and India, marijuana was introduced into Western medicine in the earth 19th century. Edible options were prescribed to patients to treat various conditions, from digestive disorders to pain to anxiety. Today, edible marijuana products have a wide variety of uses in the medical community, and are becoming a popular choice for patients who request a natural treatment.
Both the THC and CBD compounds from the marijuana plant work together to create therapeutic and medically effective results. THC is responsible for causing feelings of relaxation and euphoria, whereas CBD has been proven to have pain- and anxiety-reducing properties.
Edible marijuana options are vast – gummies, candies, chocolates, capsules, teas, and other drinks are just a few examples. Due to the wide array of compounds that a marijuana plant contains, consuming infused products offers a different type of effect. Inhaling marijuana smoke causes cannabinoids to be absorbed into the bloodstream, producing an immediate effect. However, when you ingest marijuana, the gastrointestinal system is processing the compounds. When the THC gets processed in your liver, the effects may take longer, but they can be stronger, which is necessary in some cases.
What Are The Other Benefits Of Ingesting Marijuana-Infused Products?
Not as harsh on the lungs – When you inhale marijuana smoke, you are inadvertently inhaling other toxins that can cause damage to the lungs. People with weak lungs or medical conditions that affect their lungs can experience the benefits of marijuana without having to inhale it by consuming edibles.
More of a “body high” – The effects experienced after consuming marijuana-infused products cause more sedative and relaxing feelings. The body is so relaxed that pain and discomfort is alleviated.
Effects last longer – Though edibles take longer to produce a reaction, the effects also last longer – usually 3 to 7 hours. The effect is also more intense, eliminating the need to consume another dose.
