Why don’t edibles affect some people?
Well, let’s talk about the actual edible for a second. Modern era cannabis edibles are more than just “special brownies.” Nowadays, just about anything can be made into an edible. Edibles can be a great source of medicine for patients who prefer not to inhale smoke and they can be a fun experience for recreational users.
In general, an edible will provide its users with a long-lasting, strong high… but not always. Believe it or not, some people may not feel any effects from an edible and not because they didn’t take enough, it’s actually more than that. Some people’s bodies just simply aren’t compatible with edibles.
How does the body process edibles?
The body processes edibles differently than any other method of cannabis consumption. When you smoke or vape cannabis, you inhale it directly into your lungs. When the cannabinoids enter the lungs, they absorb into the bloodstream and then travel to the brain. This is why when you smoke or vape cannabis, you feel the effects within minutes.
For edibles, on the other hand, it will take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours before you start feeling the effects. After consuming an edible and you still feel no effects around the 3 hour mark, then either the edible was a dud, or, maybe, your body just doesn’t react to them.
Finding an effective dosage
Finding the dose that’s right for you requires a bit of experimentation. Some people need more to feel their desired effects and others need less; you will not know the perfect dose until you try.
Another aspect to consider is that everyone has their own tolerance level. Each person has a specific amount they can take before they will feel the effects of the edible.
How your metabolism affects your high
Metabolism involves more than just your body figure and how lucky you got in the gene pool. It also determines the rate at which your body breaks down food, minerals, chemicals, and, yes, cannabis.
When a person ingests an edible, a majority of the active ingredient breaks down in the liver, which filters out foreign/toxic substances from the blood, before it gets a chance to travel to the brain and cause any psychoactive effect. Luckily, enough active ingredient still makes it to the brain to induce the effects of being high.
A person with a very strong metabolism can break down the cannabis in the liver to the extent that it is too diluted by the time it reaches the brain to create any sort of psychoactive effect. This means no matter how strong your edible is, it might not work.
It just may not be suitable for you
Edibles are like any other drug in that they may or may not work well with your body chemistry. For some individuals, edibles do not work at all to get them high. If this is the case for you then you may feel like you are missing out. But, not to worry, there’s always something new in the works every year, there’s plenty out there to experiment with!
If you believe you may be one of the people that isn’t affected by edibles, try taking cannabis via sublingual absorption. If you allow the active ingredient to absorb underneath your tongue, the cannabinoids enter the mucus membranes and glands of your mouth, penetrating the bloodstream directly while bypassing the liver and its metabolic functions.
