Although there are more infused foods more available than ever, it’s important to note that eating (or drinking!) an edible is different from smoking a joint or taking a hit from a bong. While a big enough inhale can certainly cause a strong psychoactive effect, edible cannabis is significantly more potent (you can even overdose on edibles).
Cannabis edibles are processed differently when the herb is ingested rather than inhaled. When inhaled, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is quickly absorbed by the lungs and into the bloodstream. THC is the compound that causes the famous cannabis “high.”
From there, the fat-soluble molecule quickly travels to fatty areas like the brain where it works its psychoactive magic.
When cannabis is eaten, however, something different happens. The food good partially broken down by the upper digestive system before it makes its way to the small intestine. In the small intestine, tiny THC molecules are absorbed through the intestinal walls and transported to the liver.
Much to the surprise of many, the liver converts THC into a stronger, more psychoactive compound called 11-Hydroxy-THC. 11-Hydroxy-THC is thought to be more bioavailable and has a stronger psychoactive effect than plain ol’ THC.
Further, because the food good must first travel through the digestive system, the cannabis product is released more slowly over time. Simply summarized, eating an edible gives you a stronger, slower high that lasts significantly longer than smoking.
G Pen Elite II Review – All You Need To Know
Power the Elite II on by pressing down the device’s power button, which is an “o” symbol. Hold down on it for four seconds to turn it on and hold down on it for two seconds to power off.
To access the settings on the device, power it on and then click the power button five times quickly. You can then use the (+) or (-) buttons to highlight settings. For example, one of the settings you can change is the temperature to read in Fahrenheit and Celsius. After highlighting what you need in the menu, click the power button again to enter.
You can also access and adjust things like the session timer, convection boost, haptic feedback and the brightness of the screen through the settings menu on the device.
To start heating your ground material, press the power button twice. The temperature should reflect that it is getting warmer on the display. Once it is at the temperature it was set for, the Elite II will vibrate twice and this will be the notification that it is ready for you to use.
