However, does eating Delta 8 and CBD effect you differently than smoking it? The short answer is yes it does and here’s why and how.  

5 Ways Eating Delta 8 and CBDs Impacts You Differently Than Smoking

  1. Edibles Are Typically Stronger Than Loose Smoked Hemp.
    Why? Because when you eat Delta 8 and CBDs, the THC gets metabolized by both the stomach and the liver, which intensifies the calming and healing properties.
  2. It Takes Longer To Feel The Effects Of Edibles.
    When you inhale Delta 8 hemp, whether by vape or by smoking, you’re delivering the THC directly to the brain. It doesn’t have to metabolize in your stomach and liver, so, the effects are more immediate. Whereas, when you eat an edible, it can take up to two hours for you to fully feel the effects. 
  3. The Effects Of Edibles Last Longer Than Smoked Delta 8 Hemp. 
    When you eat edibles, it might take longer to feel the effects, but when you finally, they tend to last longer. Oftentimes you will feel the effects for 6 to 10 hours, or more. This is ideal for someone who is using Delta 8 for pain or symptom management.

As your body digests the edible, it will slowly continue to release all of the THC into your bloodstream. This is a good thing, because you’re less likely to feel high, and more likely to feel relief. However, when you inhale Delta 8, you get between 50% and 60% of the THC in your bloodstream at a time.
  5. Edibles Are Actually Healthier Than Smoking.
    While smoking Delta 8 Hemp helps numerous of medical conditions, at the end of the day, eating Delta 8 and CBD edibles has less of an impact on your lungs.
