Can You Eat Weed? All You Need to Know About Marijuana Edibles
Can You Eat Weed?
Edible products have not been shown to negatively affect lung health or cancer risk. Therefore, if you’re concerned about the possible health risks associated with smoking cannabis, you may want to use edible cannabis products as an alternative. However, because most cannabis research focuses on smoking cannabis, the long-term health implications of consuming edibles are still unknown. Nonetheless, ingesting cannabis is potentially safer than smoking it. You can check this website https://ministryofhemp.com/blog/best-thc-gummies/ and find the complete Marijuana Edibles guide.
Edibles are not the same as smoked cannabis.
At first sight edibles may seem like they have the same effects as smoking cannabis. They actually have different nutritional properties and less of the psychoactive substances that make cannabis a mind-altering drug. In the end, the difference is not big enough to recommend that people start using edibles to treat their symptoms. While we have tested them for health benefits and safety, we don’t recommend that anyone starts using them as a way to treat their symptoms. Even though edibles contain fewer psychoactive substances, they still contain the same amount of THC and CBD. And as mentioned before, the body is less able to metabolize THC than CBD. Because of this, it can lead to a spike in blood THC levels.
This has been shown by another study. After consuming a few grams of marijuana-based product, participants ingested a low-dose that mimics the effect of a small amount of cannabis. Half of the participants ingested a low-dose of cannabis orally. This had the same effect as smoking a small amount of cannabis, as they began to experience effects within 15 minutes and that drug had no effect on how the body processes and metabolizes cannabis. However, some people experience severe side effects that last for up to 48 hours after consuming large amounts of edibles. This issue is not exclusive to cannabis. You may want to consult your doctor if you are contemplating using edibles for the first time and develop symptoms related to high blood levels of THC or CBD. Some people have reported side effects including anxiety, confusion, and unusual feelings of discomfort or agitation. It is important to note that not everyone experiencing side effects from edibles experience problems for a period of up to 48 hours.
When swallowing cannabis, the pressure in your stomach pushes food into your esophagus, and this can result in being sick to your stomach. These symptoms are not uncommon and the best advice is to wait at least 24 hours to see if your symptoms become worse. Your doctor can give you advice on how to cope with nausea, including how to avoid overeating to avoid nausea. It may also be advisable to stop smoking cannabis if you experience nausea for some reason, and/or if you experience any other symptoms like low blood pressure or dizziness. Depending on your health insurance, most health insurance plans cover chronic conditions that require regular prescriptions.
