Weed can be consumed in many forms. (Note: 100% bioavailability is intravenous delivery and the standard by which bioavailability is defined and compared). This process produces vapor instead of smoke. The CBD is taken in through the alveoli in the lungs like smoking. Edibles and Capsules Infusing weed into butter or cooking oil or any other edible fat or sugar alcohol produces edible hemp in the form of food or capsules. Each way of consumption has its advantages and downsides and therefore the effects could also be instant or take hours. These pathways are commonly mentioned as routes of administration. The diagram below breaks down what's called the pharmacokinetics of THC – pharmacokinetics is that the science concerned with the movement of medication within the body. We see below that the “form” during which THC is run determines how it moves and works medicinally inside the body. 

Below could be a simplified breakdown of the important factors when considering each kind of intake: 

Biovail ability – the fraction of the administered dose that reaches systemic circulation; the upper the amount, the larger fraction of the dose that reaches circulation.       

accuracy of dose – the degree to which one can quantify the number of medication in each dose 

time to onset – the number of your time before the medicinal or pharmacological effects are felt 

duration of effect – the length of your time the medicinal or pharmacological express themselves 

quality and consistency of effect – the degree to which one can depend upon a repeatable experience 

In most cases, the intended goal is to try and do the smallest amount of harm to the patient while maximizing the medical efficacy of every dose.
