Does Smoking Weed Have Side Effects? Do Edibles Have Side Effects?

Most marijuana side effects are caused by THC. So, any cannabis product that contains THC may cause these side effects. 

However, different weed ingestion methods have different pharmacokinetics, meaning that different ingestion methods can produce distinct effects and side effects, and even objective measures like levels of THC in the blood.

When you eat an edible, you digest it. As a result, the THC goes through first-pass metabolism in your liver, where it is converted into a more potent compound: 11-OH-THC. This metabolite has greater and longer-lasting psychoactive effects, which may cause you to experience greater or longer lasting side effects. 

In short, different ingestion methods may produce different side effects, but any product with THC has the potential to cause adverse side effects for some individuals. You should choose the ingestion method that is best suited for your wellness goals.

Does CBD Have Side Effects?

While the side effects of CBD are much milder than marijuana side effects, there are still some potential side effects to watch out for. Some people have reported experiencing gastrointestinal distress, dry mouth, reduced appetite, drowsiness, and fatigue after using CBD.
