Marijuana Different compounds in marijuana have different actions in the human body. The effects of marijuana also vary depending on how marijuana compounds enter the body: When taken by mouth , such as in baked goods, the THC is absorbed poorly and can take hours to be absorbed.
When marijuana is smoked or vaporized inhaled , THC enters the bloodstream and goes to the brain quickly. The second psychoactive compound is produced in small amounts, and so has less effect. The effects of inhaled marijuana fade faster than marijuana taken by mouth. How can marijuana affect symptoms of cancer?
