Daring & Delightful: "Highs" and Lows of Ingesting vs. Smoking THC

You know what they say, "Different strains for different brains," or in this case, different strokes for different smokes, am I right? So you've decided to take a dive into the wonderful world of THC, but you're not quite sure which way will take you on that magical, mind-blowing journey. Fear not, my fellow Canna-enthusiasts, for today, we'll be comparing our two most beloved ways to consume THC — ingesting and smoking — and determining which one is "higher" for your liking.

First, let's kick it off with the traditional way of consuming THC, which is smoking it. Lighting up a joint or hitting that bong unleashes the sweet euphoria that many users know and love. The "high" from smoking THC starts pretty quickly, and in just a few minutes, you'll feel that familiar relaxation and focus setting in. The peak, on the other hand, usually occurs after about 30 minutes, and this beautiful, blissful journey can last up to several hours, depending on factors like the strain, your tolerance, and how much you consumed. One could say that smoking THC is like the rollercoaster ride: fast, thrilling, and shortly-lived.

Now, let's dish the dirt on an alternative way of consuming THC — ingesting it. Sure, brownies and gummy bears might seem like an odd choice to get that delightful buzz, but ingesting THC, in all honesty, is as wonderful and enigmatic as a first love. Unlike smoking, the "high" from ingesting THC can take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours to appear, as it needs to be broken down and absorbed by your body. But baby, once it hits... you're in for an unforgettable experience.

To put it frankly, there’s an unrivaled intensity to this particular high. When ingested, THC is converted into 11-hydroxy-THC by our liver, which is notably more potent and has a longer stay in our bodies. So while you may be waiting a bit longer for liftoff, you're packing a powerful punch and getting ready for a celestial adventure! Strap in, my darlings, because ingesting THC is like the rocket ship to outer space: it's a slow and steady climb to an exhilarating, long-lasting voyage.

No two highs are the same, my sweet canna-inspired friends! You might be in for an uplifting, creative burst, or prepare to sink into the mellow tranquility of the couch. It's essential to know that each body, batch and bite will have different outcomes. So here's our recommendation: experiment like a mad scientist, indulge safely, and find the right balance and method that will take you on a perfect cloud nine trip through the THC heavens.

Ingesting or smoking THC — what's your choice of poison, lovely stoners? While it's impossible to determine a clear winner between the two, we must confess: there's a unique charm in each of these methods that promises to keep us forever spellbound by the wonders of THC. Stay high on life (and THC), and enjoy the enticing, enchanting experience of discovering your own sweet spot. Happy puffin' and munchin', darlings!
