Why Does It Take So Long to Feel Edibles? Is There Anything That Can Speed Up the Onset of Effects?

Marijuana edibles and a woman holding a clock

Dear Cheri,

I have a question. I did not grow up smoking weed but now I’m 58 years old and have arthritis and severe nerve damage in my body. My doctor recommended me getting a medical marijuana card which I did.  

I do not like smoking anything but I do follow you and have taken your online course on making edibles.   

My question is why does it take 4-5 hours for me to feel any effects from it?  I’ve even bought edibles at the dispensary and have the same issue, so I know it’s not an error in my cooking.   The other day I used some of my cannabis oil that I made and it took 4 hours for me to feel anything.  Could this be just how my body metabolizes food?
Get the answer and watch the video.
