Effects of edibles

Why are the effects of edibles so different to smoking?

If you’ve ever experienced the effects of edibles, you’ve probably had 11-hydroxy-THC in your system. This powerful cannabinoid is likely responsible for many of the medicinal and psychoactive effects in cannabis edibles — but it isn’t actually in cannabis or even part of your cannabis edible. Interestingly, this chemical is created in your own body when one of cannabis’ main ingredients, THC, is metabolized.
