How long does CBD gummies keep you medicated?
When you consume cannabis via smoking or vaping, the cannabinoids enter the lungs immediately and travel through the circulation to the brain before spreading to the rest of the body. On the other hand, THC found in edibles enters the body through the digestive system and first undergoes liver metabolization before moving on to other parts of the body.
In the liver, THC is converted into 11-hydroxy-THC, a more potent version of the chemical. The effects of this chemical continue for six to eight hours and require between 30 and 90 minutes to become active. Additionally, this type of THC is better at penetrating the blood-brain barrier, providing a stronger and more sedative effect than other forms.
