All of the relief that comes from your body’s natural endocannabinoid system needs to do is to keep delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in your body.
If you don’t let the delta 8 stay in your system, it can be challenging to get the desired result. Many people are not aware of this, and they find themselves wanting more and more, which only leads to more trouble. The good news is that you have a significant amount of control over when you smoke pot. Some weed smokers might wait 24 hours after they last smoked before they indulge again, while others have just one big session and then never light up again for several months or years.
It is essential to understand the truth about THC and how it works in your body. You need to know when and why you should take an extended break from marijuana.
THC or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol is one of many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD or cannabidiol is another cannabinoid researched for its medical properties. Delta-9 THC is the primary psychoactive component found in most forms of marijuana. The “high” that many people experience results from delta-9 THC working with your brain’s endocannabinoid production.
When you smoke marijuana, delta-9 THC is absorbed into your lungs and eventually transferred to the bloodstream. It is then quickly dispersed throughout your body into fatty organs such as the brain, heart, bones, and other fat sources. It can even be found in breast milk as well as blood cells and sperm cells. You need to note that every cell has a cannabinoid receptor that allows delta-9 THC to interact with various body parts.
This is why you feel high. Delta-9 THC can change how these various receptors work in these cells. It works by binding to those cannabinoid receptors, and it changes the way the cells behave by creating such effects as a burst of energy or even making one sleepy.
Some people might feel paranoid, anxious, or even overly aggressive if they are not taking in enough delta-9 THC for their body to respond as it wants to. The amount of marijuana needed for a person to achieve that desired effect varies depending on several factors, including size, metabolism, age, and tolerance level. The good news is that you can control how much delta-9 THC stays in your body by taking breaks from smoking pot.
If you smoke weed for 12 hours straight, you will only be able to get about six percent of delta-9 THC absorbed into your system. Each time you smoke marijuana for 12 hours directly, the amount of delta-9 THC absorbed will gradually come down so that six percent is reached in the end. This means that you will have to smoke at least three days’ worth of marijuana in a row before getting all twelve hours absorbed. With other more potent forms of marijuana, such as Mary Jane concentrate or Black India that can be smoked in one sitting without waiting, it is possible to achieve much higher levels of opiate receptors in your body and still not feel the need to get high again.
