Edibles Guide Part 6. Types of Edibles
Let’s take a look at the three main types of edibles and their actions.
In the previous sections, we learned that the speed and strength are impacted by various factors, including the type of edible. Let’s take a look at the three main ones and their effects.
What Are Different Types of Edibles?
The main difference between edibles in addition to their method of consumption is how THC is absorbed into your bloodstream.
1. Gastrointestinal Intake
Though it may take some time before the effects are felt, these edibles often produce a more intense and longer-lasting high.
It may take up to 2 hours in order for the product to get into the stomach, dissolve there and begin its action, taking up to 2 hours of waiting, but the action itself can last up to 8 hours.
Some example of this type are:
2. Oral Intake
These edibles take much less time than gastrointestinally-absorbed ones, but they also wear off faster. The effects can be felt in under 30 minutes, since THC is initially absorbed through the receptors in the oral cavity. This type acts faster but lasts just 2-3 hours.
Examples of these edibles include:
Users may feel effects quickly from the THC absorbed in their saliva, and then feel the effects of absorption in the stomach long after the initial high. The initial effects may come around in just 30 minutes with the overall high lasting about 4 hours.
Hybrid edibles include:
Some chocolates (truffles)
We hope that this series has been of help and now, when you come to a dispensary you will be able to quickly decide on what you want today and what suits you the best among the huge variety of cannabis edibles.
