There’s a lot of talk about edibles vs. flower lately and people seem genuinely curious about the differences in effects. Is one better than the other? What are the pros and cons of each? In this blog post, we’ll explore the differences between the two so you can make an informed decision about which type of cannabis consumption is right for you.
When it comes to getting high, there are a few different ways to do it. You can smoke flower, vape concentrate, or eat/drink an edible. But what’s the difference between them? How do they all make you feel? And which one is best for you?
How Do Edibles Work?
Part of the reason edibles hit so differently is because they’re processed by your digestive system instead of your lungs. Vaporized THC can reach the bloodstream through your lungs almost instantly, but it takes a while to digest an edible. After the edible breaks down in your stomach for a little bit, the cannabinoids are processed by the organs in your digestive system. It’s at this point that you start to feel the effects of edibles.
How Does Inhaling Flower Work?
Smoking marijuana is one of the most common ways to use it because you can feel its effects much quicker than when eating an edible. After smoking a joint, THC enters your bloodstream and passes from there into tissues throughout your body including brain cells which will make you high quickly!
If you are looking for a quicker, more intense high, smoking is the way to go. However, if you want a longer-lasting and more subdued effect, eating an edible may be the better option for you.
