    I always thought edibles were glad a big waste, but I finally tried to make cannabutter medicine.

    So much better than smoking it!

    My question: does taking medicine with a meal make it last longer in your system? I've noticed this first time with meal is's considerably longer, but 8 hours???? Anyone know why the meal makes the difference.

    Hello :)

    I don't think it really makes a difference to be honest, your body is absorbing the fat which has all the activated THC in it. It might be possible to add it to a food that would metabolise slower, I'm not really sure..I assume that it would make the high last longer, but it would also lower the peak you get.

    Nothing wrong with experimenting...sounds like a good excuse if you ask me xD !

    Eat edibles with a fatty meal. The thc will bind with the fats and your body will absorb it better thru your system.

    It is the act of ingesting it that makes it last longer. When consuming THC, your body metabolizes the delta9 into delta11 and that is the difference in buzz and length of buzz.

    Edibles need to go thru your liver to get into your bloodstream... this makes delta 11 thc... a much longer acting cannabinoid..

    How does the delta 11 thc make it to the liver if not through the blood stream?

    Couldn't wait for an answer so looked it up

    drug-metabolizing enzymes are present in your GI tract. As you are sitting there digesting that cannabis brownie, these enzymes are busy creating 11-OH-THC.
    The second factor is that all blood flow from your GI tract goes to the liver first before entering the general circulation (a phenomenon called first pass metabolism). This is one more chance for 11-OH-THC to be created in high quantities.
