Common Ways of Marijuana Consumption

There are many ways to enjoy the effects of cannabis on your mind, body and soul.

The most common, and recommended uses are through smoking, vaporizing and dabbing, topical and ingestion.

Smoking

Using pipes, bongs and joints is the most effective (expedited) way to consume cannabis with the most efficient dosage control.

Vaporizing

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.

Dabbing

Dab is a small amount of a concentrated cannabis extract such as shatter, wax, BHO (butane hash oil)., live resin and so on which is consumed using a dab rig or e-nail, through heating and inhaling. Concentrates contain up to 90% THC, which is much more than the typical cannabis flower.

Topical

Cannabis infused topical is another alternative route. Topical such as lotions, balms, salves, sprays and massage oils are applied directly onto your skin. Topicals are absorbed through the skin.

Ingestion 

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 - lozenges or gummies, drinks, tinctures, and even cooking oil.
