On first glance, you’ll feel that there’s no difference between smoking marijuana and eating it in the form of edibles. The chemical is the same, so the effects of it will be the same too right? :)
Well, not really. There have been many stories of seasoned marijuana smokers going overboard with edibles and experiencing disorientation, hallucination etc, as these set of California cops right here.
So what are edibles, how do you make them and is their high really different from smoking marijuana?
What Are Edibles?
The term edibles refer to any food or drink that contains cannabis in a form that can be ingested, rather than being smoked or vaporized. They’re essentially a popular, less detectable alternative to smoking marijuana. Edibles look similar to common baked goods and also include marijuana-laced candies and beverages. Edibles are commonly made with marijuana leaves or higher potency cannabis extracts. Some examples of readily consumed forms of edibles include cookies, candies, chocolate bars, or brownies.
Eating edibles has its own set of highs. Contrary to common belief, instead of causing a stomach ache, edibles can actually help your belly! Research has shown that cannabinoid receptors in your gastrointestinal tract play a key role in managing abdominal pain, cramping, and nausea. By slowing down the muscle spasms and contractions in the gastrointestinal tract, eating edibles can offer a great sense of relief to people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s disease.
How To Make Edibles?
Simply eating or drinking raw cannabis won’t get you high. For you to get high, you’ll have to make it go through the process of cannabis conversion. The process kills off a carbon molecule and allows the human cannabinoid receptors to react with the pleasure-producing molecules once the cannabis is digested.
To begin the process, expose the cannabis to either a heat, fat, or alcohol source so it will affect once it is eaten. Also, make sure you ground up the cannabis into flour or infuse it with oil or butter. This is done to make sure that the cannibis gets properly mixed and can give you a potent high.
