With most users the effects start two hours after consumption, with a secondary wave of effects after 4 hours from consumption, due to the digestion process of THC. and it also has psychoactive effects. Disadvantages: a feeling of "high" can be less predictable when there is no prior experience in cannabis consumption. The feeling lasts much longer than any other method of cannabis consumption. There are variables such as height, weight, metabolism rate and stomach contents which affects each person differently. The effects can only be felt about 60 to 120 minutes after consumption, and the delay often causes patients to take a second dose, mistakenly thinking the previous dose had no effect. It's ill-advised to take an overdose. The effects lasts somewhere between 4 and 10 hours, which can prolong sleep and prevent the patient from waking up at time for work... so our advice is never to take a second dose before the first one had it's full effect. It's also possible to consume cannabis in ready-made pills. We're referring to cannabis which was heat-processed (decarboxylation) and the main advantage is that the dosages are accurate. This is perfectly suitable for patients who would like to consume cannabis the same way they consume other pill-medication.
