When taking cannabis flowers, it is important to remember that the active ingredients are released when heated. This can be done in the following ways:
Patients use a vaporizer to heat cannabis flowers to over 185 °C and inhale the active ingredients. THC and CBD extract from cannabis can be vaporized or taken orally.
If the cannabis flowers are prepared as a tea, it should be noted that the tea is boiled over a low heat for about 30 minutes. And because of the strong lipophilic properties of the active ingredients, tea should be drunk with some fat, such as milk or butter.
Start and duration of action
The effect of cannabinoids by vaporization/inhalation begins in just a few minutes, and the effect can last up to four hours. When taken orally, onset of efficacy occurs after 30-90 minutes and can last up to eight hours, depending on factors such as the type of food consumed at the same time and individual gastrointestinal transit time, among others.
