We’re turning our spotlight on a popular topic: the advantages of consuming Delta-9 THC in the form of edibles, like our Delta-9 gummies and our brand-new Drink Mix. We’ll also discuss the potential disadvantages when compared to the traditional method of smoking in flower form.
The cannabis industry has evolved considerably, branching out from the familiar smoking methods into a diverse range of edibles and drinkables. This transformation has opened a world of opportunities for consumers looking to experience the potential benefits of Delta-9 THC in a more controlled, enjoyable, and health-conscious manner.
Delta-9 THC Overview
Before diving into the specifics, let’s brush up on what Delta-9 THC is. Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, or Delta-9 THC, is the main psychoactive compound found in cannabis. It’s the component that produces the ‘high’ that recreational users seek, but it also carries an array of potential therapeutic benefits, including pain relief, appetite stimulation, and relief from symptoms of conditions like anxiety and insomnia.
Advantages of Edibles and Drink Mixes Over Smoking
1. It’s a healthier alternative.
Smoking cannabis can potentially harm your lungs over time due to the combustion of plant material. In contrast, Delta-9 THC gummies and drink mixes, like our premium products, offer a lung-friendly alternative, free from the toxins associated with smoking.
2. You can control the dosage.
One of the significant advantages of our Delta-9 gummies and drink mixes is that they provide an accurately measured dose of THC. This allows you to control your intake and predict the effects more reliably, a challenge when smoking flower.
3. The effects are different than smoking.
The way Delta-9 THC is metabolized when ingested versus smoked means you’ll experience a more prolonged and often more intense effect. When consumed in the form of an edible or drink mix, THC is converted in the liver to 11-hydroxy-THC, a potent form of the compound, providing a different kind of ‘high.’
4. It has additional, functional ingredients.
Our Delta-9 Drink Mixes go the extra mile by including functional mushrooms like Reishi and Cordyceps, which may help with cardiovascular health, blood sugar regulation, stress reduction, immune health, and inflammation.
5. It’s more discreet.
Finally, edibles and drink mixes are discreet, portable, and convenient. There’s no need for paraphernalia or a designated smoking area. You can simply enjoy a gummy or a drink mix anytime, anywhere.
It’s important to also note a few potential disadvantages of edibles and drink mixes compared to smoking flower, even though we believe the pros significantly outweigh the cons.
1. The onset time can be long.
Because edibles must be digested and metabolized in the liver, the effects are not felt as quickly as when smoking. It may take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to begin feeling the effects.
2. Your body’s absorption differs from person to person.
Factors like your metabolism, what else is in your stomach, and the strength of the edible or drink mix can lead to variable absorption, meaning the effects can differ from person to person and from occasion to occasion.
If you’re considering diving into the world of Delta-9 THC, consider the clear advantages of edibles and Delta-9 THC drink mixes, such as those offered by Simple Garden CBD. With the added benefits of functional mushrooms and the precise, lung-friendly dosage of our products, you’re sure to find a delightful and potentially beneficial experience waiting for you.
