Do you hate the smell of cannabis smoke? How about the stigma that often comes with that scent? Maybe you’re concerned about some of the harms associated with smoking?
If the above considerations weigh heavily on your mind, then perhaps you may want to explore a different way to consume cannabis than the typical fashion (i.e. smoking).
Internal cannabis delivery methods processed by the liver, such as tinctures and edibles, are a popular choice for those who seek to achieve the benefits of cannabis without the drawbacks of smoking. When you consume cannabinoids such as THC, it is converted by the liver into delta-hydroxy THC which is five times stronger than THC alone. This is why cannabis edibles can pack a real punch.
Edibles can be hard candies, gummies, brownies, or any other type of food infused with cannabis. Tinctures can be applied directly under the tongue to achieve a more rapid effect. In either instance, you won’t feel the effects of edibles until it is metabolized by your body, so if you’ve eaten before consuming edibles or have a slower metabolism in general, the effects can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours to be perceived.
Tinctures, specifically Ruby Mary tinctures like Raw and Decarb are made with two ingredients, CBD and MCT oil. This allows for a more rapid absorption and metabolization, especially if you consume them on an empty stomach. By holding the tinctures under your tongue, the cannabinoids can be absorbed by the blood vessels in your mouth for an even faster uptake. Like we mentioned previously, the how long it takes to activate depends on your personal metabolism, so some experimentation is necessary.
What Are The Benefits of Internal Cannabis Delivery?
Internal cannabis delivery methods are beneficial because they don’t have the harmful effects of smoking, such as an elevated risk of cancer from particulates found in combustion methods of consumption.
They’re also relatively discrete, since there’s no smell like there would be with vaping or smoking.
Overall, internal cannabis products provide a way for you to get the most benefits with the least amount of drawbacks.
What Are The Drawbacks of Internal Cannabis Delivery?
That said, internal cannabis delivery methods do have some drawbacks. The first is that it can take a while for edibles to kick in, which may cause someone to consume more than they normally would because they don’t feel the effects right away.
Internal cannabis delivery methods offer consumers a way to receive the health benefits of cannabis and/or enjoy recreational use. The benefits and drawbacks can be measured to determine if this method is right for you.
No matter what the reason is for choosing this delivery method, it remains a popular way to consume cannabis with many people. We hope that it might be right for you, as well!
