The most common, and recommended uses are through smoking, vaporizing and dabbing, topical and ingestion.
Using pipes, bongs and joints is the most effective (expedited) way to consume cannabis with the most efficient dosage control.
Vaporizing allows patients to inhale the active ingredients as a vapor instead of smoke. A vaporizer is a device that slightly heats up cannabis at a lower temperature and helps to release the active components of cannabis.
Dab is a small amount of a concentrated cannabis extract made by obtaining cannabinoids and THC resulting sticky oils known as shatter, hashish oil BHO ( butane hash oil ). Dabs contain up to 90% THC, which is much more than the typical cannabis flower.
Cannabis infused topical is another alternative route. Topical such as lotions, balms, salves, sprays and massage oils are applied directly onto your skin. Topical are absorbed through the skin and may help with pain relief, soreness, and inflammatory.
Ingesting cannabis is an alternative method. It takes longer to feel the effects when eaten, and may take longer to learn how to control your dosage. However, when you do feel the effects, they may be stronger than those felt by smoking. Commonly known as “edibles”. Edibles come in several forms-sweets, drinks, tinctures and cooking oil.
