The processing of Medical Cannabis in your body varies depending on the method of consumption. There are two primary ways to consume medical cannabis: inhalation and ingestion. Inhalation involves smoking or vaping the cannabis flower, while ingestion includes consuming edibles, capsules, oils, or tinctures.
When you vape medical cannabis, the active cannabinoids, THC and CBD, are vaporized and enter your lungs. From there, they directly enter your bloodstream, leading to a quick onset of THC’s effects.
On the other hand, when you ingest medical cannabis products, they go through metabolism in the liver before entering the bloodstream. As a result, the effects are usually not felt until 30-60 minutes after consumption.
