Smoking and ingesting cannabis produce vastly different effects.
When marijuana is smoked, THC, CBD and other beneficial plant compounds are released. These compounds are inhaled and absorbed into the bloodstream through the airways, leading to an immediate onset of effects.
Ingesting cannabis has an onset time of anywhere from 30-90 minutes (and sometimes longer). Digesting cannabinoids means they must be broken down in the stomach, to then be processed through the liver. When THC goes through this process, known as the first-pass effect, it is converted to 11-hydroxy-THC - a compound 5x's more psychoactive than inhaling a vape. The effects of marijuana edibles are primarily heavy, body effects.
Vaping cannabis is the act of heating the oil, whole flower or concentrate to the point that the desired cannabinoids and terpenes are released in vapor format. The vapors are then inhaled for immediate onset of effects.
Dabbing is the term used to describe consuming marijuana concentrates. Dabs are consumed using a dab rig, similar to a water pipe with special pieces to withstand high heats, or e-rigs or dab pens. Dabs are potent forms of cannabis and considered a macrodose of the cannabinoids. Because dabs are typically 5 times more potent than vaping a cannabis vape or smoking flower, dabs are not recommended for beginners.
