How to Consume Cannabis

How to consume

Lucky for you, cannabis products have come a long way. Choose the best method for your needs and lifestyle—they’re all good.

Cannabis Vape/Vaporizer

Vaporizers are convenient pen-shaped devices that are more discreet than traditional options, like a joint. They are odorless, portable, and require virtually no heating time. Vaporizers are often filled with oil cartridges, and vaporize the cannabis instead of combusting it, releasing the active compounds without unhealthy contaminants that you’d find in smoke. Regardless of your experience level, the effects are felt almost immediately, making this the most efficient way for your body to process cannabis.

Cannabis Edibles

There’s more than brownies here—edibles are a delicious way to consume cannabis without smoking or gadgets. They’re easy to measure out and dose on your own, and they’re as discreet as your afternoon snack. Unlike smoking, the THC takes a while to reach your bloodstream because it has to be digested by the stomach first. The effects are stronger and longer-lasting—but they also take longer to realize, which means you should start with the lowest dosage possible if it’s your first time.

Cannabis Prerolls

Prerolls are traditional joints—except the work of rolling is already done for you. These pre-rolled joints make great gifts, party favors, or stash-and-dash smokes for yourself. They’re great for beginners who may not know how to roll, and convenient for experienced consumers who want something quick and quality-controlled. Pre-rolls are available in most strains and and come in a variety of quantities and sizes.

Cannabis Topicals

Topicals are balms, lotions, creams, sprays, patches, and bath products used solely for external application—usually on the skin. Topicals are mostly non-psychoactive, meaning they will not get you high. However, some transdermal patches deliver THC through your skin and will get you high. Most topicals have high amounts of CBD for pain relief (great for athletes, people recovering from surgery or suffering from chronic pain, etc).

Cannabis Tinctures

Tinctures are essentially concentrated cannabis that have been infused with a number of different oils(olive oil, coconut oil, etc.). Whether you don’t want to smoke or you’re looking for a low-calorie alternative to edibles, tinctures are a potent and simple way to get started—if you follow directions and build up incrementally. Drop them under your tongue for a fast-acting and long-lasting effect.

Cannabis Extracts and Concentrates

Concentrates are highly potent cannabis extracts. They come in a variety of forms, including wax, shatter, hash, BHO, crumble and resin. We generally don’t recommend products in this category to beginners, as they are very strong and often require specialized equipment, like a dab rig, to use.
