When taking capsules, edibles, or tinctures orally, the cannabinoids are metabolized in the stomach like a food or beverage. The cannabinoids enter the blood¬stream directly and immediately travel to the brain, where they bind to cannabinoid receptor cells. When ingested, THC becomes 11-hydroxy-tetrahydrocan¬nabinol, a cannabinoid that is five to ten times more psychoactive than THC itself. However, CBD, can be ingested without any concern for psychoactive effects. Overall, ingesting CBD is one of the best ways to absorb CBD for its strong anti-inflammatory properties. This method has similar mind and body effects to inhaling cannabis through smoking or vaporization. Effects are usually felt within 15 to 45 minutes and last two to three hours.
