Cannabis Capsules, that has a nice ring to it right? We know most Cannabis enthusiasts prefer to enjoy our beloved plant by combustion; but what are the benefits of Cannabis Capsules, what are they made up of and how do those that do exist differentiate from one another?
Similar to capsules or soft gels that most of us are familiar with like Advil or Tylenol, the appeal to Cannabis Capsules is the fact that they are easy to consume discreetly and manage dosage because each capsule contains a specific amount of THC or CBD.
According to WeedMaps, “Immediate-release capsules work identically to edibles. They enter the body through the mouth and are absorbed through the stomach. The absorbed compounds are then metabolized in the liver. This is where THC is metabolized into a compound called 11-hydroxy-THC, which has a longer half-life and can have more of a sedative effect than THC alone.” Timed-release capsules on the other hand, follow the identical path of digestion, but the delivery of their contents can be delayed or drawn out over a period of time depending upon the capsule shell’s ingredients.”
Whether it be predominately THC or CBD capsules, the choice is yours. If you choose to consume THC dominant capsules you can expect an intoxicating effect. Alternatively should you choose CBD dominant capsules you will receive “medicinal and therapeutic benefits”.
Lucky for you, we carry both THC & CBD dominant capsules from ABX (Absolut Extracts), Care By Design and Papa & Barkley at all of our LA Cannabis Co locations!
