FORMS

methods use
  • smoking

    • Rapid onset
    • Higher blood levels of cannabinoids
    • Shorter duration of pharmacodynamics effect

    • Heat source introduces harmful contaminants
  • oral

    • Slower onset of action

    • Longer duration of pharmacodynamics effects, proceeding on a time scale of hours, depending on metabolism
    • Absorption from an oral dose can be slow, variable and unreliable
    • Can be in pill form, swallowed as a liquid, or extracted into fat (butter or oils) and then ingested
    • When digested, active ingredients are metabolized in the liver before entering the blood stream, converting into a more psychoactive form, causing different effects

    • Vaporizers for flowers and for oils
  • beverages

    • Effects are similar to oral consumption
  • topicals

    • Cannabinoids are highly hydrophobic, making transport across the aqueous layer of the skin the rate-limiting step in the diffusion process
    • Popular choice for localized pain and inflammation
    • Applied externally as a topical ointment, Lotion, or poultice
    • Typically, doesn’t produce the psychoactive effects as THC does not enter the bloodstream
