Mikhail Kogan, medical director of the Center for Integrative Medicine at George Washington University, wants you to put marijuana up your butt.
In Canada’s National Post, Kogan said, “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.”
In addition to being more effective, rectal absorption is better for your health. Smoking marijuana is bad for your lungs, just like smoking tobacco.
So if you’re going to use weed, try a smokeless option, like edibles or your butt. Though the latter option might make the whole “passing the joint” ritual a little awkward for some of us.
