Over the last couple of years, the marijuana industry has changed drastically and now offers a variety of products that can be consumed in different ways. This means that users can find a method that works best for them and their situation.
Marijuana Consumption Choices Include:
Smoking – The most common method of marijuana use is smoking the dried flower. Whether packed into a pipe or bong or rolled into paper, inhaling THC can offer instant relief. However, smoking is not a good option for people that may suffer from asthma or other lung-related issues.
A relatively new method of smoking is referred to as “dabbing.” Cannabis concentrate is heated to a high temperature and then inhaled, providing almost instant effect. This method is great for urgent use, but it is common for dabbing to cause extreme psychoactive effects.
Vaping – Vaping has become as common as smoking flower in the last several years. One method includes adding dry flowers to a preheated vaporizer and inhaling the smoke. Disposable vape cartridges are also available, and do not require any work besides pressing a button! Generally, flavoring is added to marijuana concentrate to add to the experience. Vaping is less harsh than smoking flower but provides the same instantaneous effects.
Edibles – Marijuana edibles are available in a ton of formats – candy, baked goods, popcorn, drinks, and more! Ingesting an edible has a much slower effect time, as your stomach needs to absorb the THC. However, the effects generally last longer than smoking. Because marijuana can be included in so many foods, there are literally hundreds of options to choose from!
Tinctures & Sprays – Tinctures are when cannabinoids are mixed with alcohol, glycerin, or coconut oil and are dropped or sprayed in the mouth. The liquid should be applied under the tongue, as it will absorb through the tissues in the mouth very quickly. Offering a mild taste and timely effects, tinctures are a great option for people who can not or do not want to inhale marijuana.
Topicals – Available in patches or cream, topical application of marijuana is ideal for people who don’t want to inhale smoke or experience psychoactive effects. Topicals are a great solution for users suffering from arthritis, muscle or joint pain, swelling, or localized pain.
