Want to get a quicker hit from your cannabis edibles?
Let’s be honest.
Who doesn’t get a bit frustrated with the time delay between consuming cannabis edibles and the effects kick in?
That delay can be anything between thirty minutes and two hours. Now that’s a bit boring.
So, what’s the problem?
Ultimately, you have to wait for your stomach to digest and break down the cannabis in your edible.
Only once the cannabis has made its way through your digestive tract, and then your liver, can it enter your bloodstream.
However, there are a few little tips and tricks that can help to speed up the effect of consuming cannabis edibles.
First off, make sure you have an empty stomach, so the cannabis is not competing against other food.
We only recommend this for experienced users though as the kick can be quite a handful.
You could take your cannabis as a tincture.
This is a liquid applied with a dropper under your tongue.
This is both a more controllable means of getting a high, and the cannabis will enter your bloodstream much faster as it bypasses your stomach.
The drawback when comparing a tincture to, say, a cannabis brownie, is that the high and after-effects are much shorter in duration.
Drinks infused with cannabis are great, especially if you want to be discrete with your cannabis consumption.
While cannabis-infused drinks still have to go through your stomach, because it is a liquid the cannabis will be digested much faster and enter your bloodstream more quickly as a result.
You can also work on improving your metabolism, either by exercising more, eating more protein, or drinking a lot of water.
You can also kill two birds with one stone by infusing your coffee or tea with cannabis as both caffeine and tannin are known to increase your metabolism.
The general rule to bear in mind though, and this can often defeat the main object of the exercise, is that the quicker the effects of cannabis edibles kick in, the quicker the effect wears off.
A well-made cannabis brownie may take two hours for the effects to become noticeable, but those effects can last for up to ten hours.
