Everybody who’s anybody knows that to hide drugs, the most sure fire way to not get caught is to put your stash where the sun don’t shine. For years, folks have been “cheeking” or “boofing” their weed to evade the law. However, now, one doctor is saying that folks who smoke bud should take it rectally (in the butt) for the best and safest effects it has to offer.
As cannabis is increasingly legalized/decriminalized across the world, the plant is being analyzed (no pun intended) and scrutinized like never before. One big find/quest is for ganja users to find safer means to indulge than smoking. Medical director of the Center for Integrative Medicine at George Washington University in Washington, DC, Mikhail Kogan told the Huffington Post, “We have so many other products now, so many modes of delivery, that smoking in my opinion is very archaic and has very little clinical applicability.”
Nevertheless, Kogan thinks butt-plugging weed is a better way to get it done:
It’s difficult to absorb enough of the drug through the lungs, and gastric acids interfere when someone eats it, he said, adding that it’s more effective to take the drug by other means, such as under the tongue.
“Rectally is actually a lot more preferred because of the volume of absorption. You can put a lot more and it gets absorbed a lot better, but not everybody is open to this way of administration,” Kogan said.
Kogan ended his summation with,” Having said that, I think that probably the majority of people still smoke because it’s the most available method.” He probably right.
