It takes an average of 1.5 hours before you notice the effect of marijuana in your food, but with a few simple tricks, it can be faster. Read this article and give your cannabis edible experience a speed boost.
You can consume cannabis as a tincture, to bypass the lengthy process of digestion. A few drops taken under the tongue can do wonders. Tinctures work fast. Another advantage of tinctures is the ease of managing the correct dosage. On the other hand, the effects will not last as long as other methods of consumption.
Before edibles enter the bloodstream, they must make their way through the stomach, intestines, and liver. Tinctures ensure that cannabinoids enter the bloodstream immediately. In this case, there is no long waiting period for the effect to strike.
The effects of tinctures kick in quicker, but the high also decreases much earlier. This is because edibles (that have a base of fat) release their cannabinoids more slowly.
Just like a traditional edible such as a brownie, a cannabis drink must go through all stages of the digestive system. Since it is liquid, the journey goes much faster. And if we may mention another great advantage of weed drinks... you can consume them very discreetly, so they are great for on-the-go.
Whether you brew a cannabis drink yourself or buy it ready-made, weed goes very well with coffee, tea, juice, and soft drinks. Whatever your preference, there is always a way to think of how to enrich it with cannabis.
Speed up your metabolic system
To allow edibles to be absorbed faster by the body, you can try to speed up your metabolism temporarily. This plays a significant role in the speed with which you digest food, and therefore also edibles. There are a few things that you can do every day to boost your metabolic rate. Eating protein-rich foods, exercising, and drinking lots of water are all good for an optimal metabolic system.
But there are still a few other things you can try. Coffee and green tea, for example, appear to support the process. These drinks naturally accelerate metabolism because of their chemical composition.
