Metabolism of THC: April 30 Infographic

There is a big difference between edibles and smoking cannabis. This great infographic shows the differences and some of the reasons the effects are very different on you head, body, and the duration is significantly longer when ingested. A new person to cannabis should start with small amounts, whether smoked, vaped, or ingested. It may take a few doses to determine where you land on the metabolism scale, so be patient.
