Why take AstroMind Edibles? AstroMind Edibles was created for the seasoned and experienced cannabis user. Many consume THC infused edibles as a stronger and more cost-effective delivery method over smoking. Many medical users say that THC infused edibles provide greater pain and anxiety relief than smoking. It also has longer-lasting highs as well, so those with excessive chronic pain may especially prefer THC edibles over smoking.
What makes edibles so much stronger? Let us break it down for you. When you ingest cannabis, the liver begins to metabolize the THC, turning it into a metabolite called 11-hydroxy-THC. This metabolite is much more potent and has a longer half-life, which makes it more intense overall and stays in your system much longer. This causes the high to last a lot longer. Going through the digestive system takes a lot longer, but when they do kick in, oh boy do they make their presence felt. Most people who have taken edibles will know this too well: they take some but do not feel anything for over an hour and so they take more. Then it hits you all at once, causing them to “green out”. For this reason, we recommend AstroMind Edibles for experienced users.
With smoking, effects are felt almost instantly. This is because the THC travels directly to your brain through the alveoli in your lungs. Alveoli are the tiny balloon shaped air sacs whose function is to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide molecules to and from the bloodstream. Therefore smoking hits you instantly.
Which is better? It really comes down to preference. For those who prefer edibles, they like that it is discreet and convenient. There is no grinding up weed or the lingering smell of smoke. The effects are more potent, last longer and it is much easier on the lungs.
