Beginner’s Guide to THC Edibles – Eating THCHere is something to think about. When you eat THC edibles there is a delay in feeling the effects. This is because your body processes the THC in a different way than when you smoke. When you smoke a joint you get an instant hit as the smoke races through your lungs to hit your brain in seconds. Consuming THC edibles means THC slowly absorbs into your bloodstream for your liver to process. The liver transforms the THC into a potent substance called 11-hydroxy-THC. Reports from users say they experienced a heightened high that lasts longer than when you smoke it. Smoking cannabis gives you instant gratification. Consuming a THC edible means it will take up to 1.5 hours to feel the effects. These can last for between 4 to 12 hours depending on how much you ate. An average THC dose of between 10 to 25 mg is enough to give you the blissful high that you seek. But, everyone is different, so it affects people in different ways.
