How does your body process edibles?
Ingesting this type of substance instead of snorting it, will cause your body to work with the digestive system and its reaction is a little slower than with inhalation, making the bloodstream absorb all the cannabinoids directed directly to the brain.
There is no fixed time of how long its effects last, but it is known that, when ingesting a gummy, for example, it can take approximately 30 min to give a reaction, from there, its stimulation could last from two to eight hours depending on its dose.
The reason why edibles have a greater effect is that once it is in your digestive system, THC is broken down in the liver and transformed into a metabolite called 11-hydroxy-THC, which is much more potent.
What are the effects of the edible?
Each dose is different depending on the country where you are, so you should carefully read the labels of each package.
It ranges between 1 and 5 milligrams. The most recommended if you are a beginner in the world of edibles is to start with a single milligram and wait up to two hours to eat more. It will help calm anxiety problems, pain relief, stress, and help improve your creativity.
2. Mild dose
Increase to a mild dose if you feel the micro-dosage is too light for you, ranging from 5 to 15 milligrams, your reactions may cause much more pain relief, tiredness or extreme euphoria.
3. Moderate Dose

This dose comprises between 50 and 100 milligrams, mostly used by doctors to their patients for great sedative effects, it is less recommended because of its unpleasant side effects.
How long do these edibles stay in your system?
There is no exact time to know the duration in each person’s system, since everything will depend on certain factors, such as body mass, age and hydration, and of course, the level of regularity with which the edibles are ingested.
This is the most common way to test for THC, as all of its metabolites remain in the urine of a beginner for about three days and up to 30 days in the urine of a frequent user.
The substance can remain within the hair for 6 to 12 months, although taking a hair follicle test is not very reliable, as it will only look for 90 days worth of growth.
It is used when a person has recently consumed the substances, i.e. THC is detected between 12 and 24 hours since last use.
Blood can be used to detect the presence of THC, up to two weeks after its last use. Of course, it will also depend on the regularity with which it is consumed.
To Sum Up
