In brief: Probably

The degree of harm has not been quantified or compared but it is always harmful to smoke.
There will still be cognitive impairment and unpredictable consequences on one's emotional stae when using cannabis in any form.

In brief: Unclear

Both orally ingested and smoking cannabis results in your body taking in all sorts of various chemicals, not just thc.
Oral cannabis is psychoactive, and is likely less predictable in terms of the effects, compared to smoking. As cannabis is illegal, i cannot recommend it's use in any form. Be careful.

In brief: Oral cannabis

You are not going to get a high when you eat cannabis as vegetable.
Passage through the gut and to the liver will breakdown cannabinoidand any quantity reaching the braib is minimally insignificant to produce euphoria. Animals eat cannabis leaves without doing a break dance!
