The main argument against cannabis edibles is that the active ingredient, THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol affects the brain chemistry to the point that it can lead to addiction. However, this isn’t fully true. Just like most drugs, marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamines have physical as well as psychological side effects. For example, smoking cannabis can cause you to lose your sense of balance, be very restless and can cause dizziness, nausea and even insomnia. However, when compared with the effects of alcohol and tobacco, these side effects are minor, if there at all. The main issue is that smoking the plant material will affect your lungs and blood vessels.
A psychoactive Effect From A cannabis Edible.
So how long will a cannabis edibles be able to affect your body? In answer to the question above, it depends on the amount of THC you ingested. If you ate only a small amount, the effects will probably start to wear off within two hours. Even in cases where people have eaten an excessive amount, the psychoactive effects can still be felt within two hours. Two hours after ingestion is considered the quickest time frame because it allows the body to slowly metabolize the plant material.
The only reason that many people who consume cannabis edibles are not experiencing withdrawal symptoms is because they consume smaller amounts over a longer period of time. This means that if one individual consumes ten servings, the effects will gradually fade away over time. As an added precaution, if you’re suffering from anxiety or other emotional issues, you should consult a professional before consuming any kind of edibles, especially if you combine them with alcohol or another substance.
