Inhaling vs. Ingesting CBD

The cannabis flower has a strong history of medicinal use, dating back thousands of years. CBD is a safe, non-addictive substance that boasts many health benefits. Niota prerolls are made with CBD flower instead of recreational or medicinal marijuana that contains high levels of THC and leads to a “high” feeling. 

Niota hemp pre-rolls are inhaled through smoke, much like a cigarette, but without many of the health hazards. Smoking hemp flower offers the same benefits of other CBD tinctures such as edibles, capsules and vapors, but absorbs in the body much quicker. 

So what is the difference between inhaling CBD and ingesting it through oils, tinctures or edibles? The difference mostly lies in the time it takes to feel the effects of the plant and how long the effects last.  

When inhaling CBD through smoking or vaping, users will experience the calming effects much faster. This is because the cannabis compounds travel directly to your lungs and straight to your bloodstream. You will feel the effects of smoking or vaping CBD within seconds or a few minutes of inhaling.  

Ingesting CBD, however, takes a bit longer. The cannabis compounds first travel to your stomach, making their way to be processed by the liver, and finally to the bloodstream. The effects of ingesting CBD can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. The calming, peaceful effects of inhaling CBD can last up to 6 hours, while the effects of ingesting CBD can last twice as long.  

So, which way is better? The short answer is, it is truly a personal preference. Ingesting CBD may be a healthier alternative, but many users benefit from the experience of smoking CBD prerolls. As long as you are mindful of your dosage, you can customize your experience and find what works best for you.
