The forms of consumption of cannabis are varied and range from smoking joints, blunts, and pipes to inhaling water pipes, bongs, and vaporizers to drinking tea and eating cookies, space cakes, and yoghurt. Top delta-8 gummies are available online and are better than other forms but the most common form of consumption is smoking joints also called oven, hashish cigarettes or bags, which is colloquially referred to as “smoking pot”.
The crumbled hashish or marijuana is usually mixed with tobacco and rolled into a cigarette. When smoking or inhaling cannabis, the effects can be felt after just a few minutes, as the THC goes straight from the lungs into the blood. The duration of action is between 1-4 hours. Processing cannabis into teas and edibles is less common. There is a particularly high risk of an overdose here, as it is difficult to estimate the right amount when preparing.
The effect of oral consumption only sets in after 30 minutes to two hours, but the intoxication can last between 4-14 hours. The imprecisely stated duration of action is because it is more difficult to estimate/dose the amount. It is also related to whether and how much was eaten/drank beforehand.
Whether someone has consumed cannabis can be proven for different lengths of time depending on the frequency. In any case, the degradation of THC takes longer than its effects. Acute cannabis use and possible intoxication are detected using a blood test within 6 to 12 hours after consumption. If consumption was several days or weeks ago, cannabis can still be detected retrospectively with a urine test for up to 3 months, since residues accumulate in the fatty tissue and the liver and these are only slowly broken down. With the help of hair analysis, detection is even possible up to 6 months after consumption.
