What happens in your body after consuming weed:
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the chemical that is responsible for most of the mental and physical effect on the body. It reaches the brain cells in 10 minutes after the dope and reaches hippocampus, the part that is responsible for creating new memories. It induces hallucinations, changes the thoughts from reality and results in delusions.
When an individual smokes weed, THC makes a quick race from lungs to blood stream. The blood carries the buzz chemical to the brain and the other parts of the body. When it starts absorbing the chemicals the individual feels high after 30 min to 45 min along with other effects.
Taking weed for long term might affect the brain development. As the individual starts using weed as teenagers, it begins to reduce the thinking capability, memory and learning skill functions. Literally, it breaks the connection between the reality and necessary functions permanently.
