This is news?  It would be like “Trying different liqueurs produces different intoxication”.  Duh!  Edibles are absorbed slowly and have a much longer effect, and a different high.  It can take as long as 3 hours after ingestion, to produce the maximum effect, though 1-2 hours is more usual.  And, it can be frightening.  You eat it, get a nice buzz going, but you keep getting higher and higher.  OMG, when is it going to stop?  Did I eat too much? And anxiety and paranoia can develop.

When ingesting, it is wisest to GO SLOWLY.  Try a minimum dose (10mg THC) and let it play out.  You can try more the next evening, but go easy at first.  When used for a sleep disorder or pain, I have heard large people suggest 30mg to sleep the night through or to reduce pain.  Obviously, it is going to last 6-8 hours, or more, so evening time of ingestion is best when no driving is involved.  No one wants a DUI or to endanger themselves or others.
