Common Ways to Consume Cannabis

Whether you are new to the world of cannabis and wondering what’s out there or you are an avid smoker looking for something new to try, you’re in the right place. Cannabis comes in many forms and can be consumed in many different ways as well. Exploring the different options that are out there can be exciting and even lead you to a better experience with cannabis. 

Find out what the common ways are to consume cannabis and what the benefits are for each, right here at Strains Dispensary.

Bong with cannabis

Vaping 

Vaping cannabis consists of using a vape pen which heats up the cannabis to a controlled temperature. Once it reaches peak temperature the cannabis vaporizes, allowing you to breathe it in and inhale. Vaping is beneficial because it keeps the actual smoke out of your lungs, it’s discreet, and it’s easy to do.

Edibles 

Edibles are available in the form of candy, cookies, snacks, drinks, and so much more. They tend to be more potent and the effects take longer to kick in so it’s important to make sure you are controlling the dosage. Edibles are very discreet, have longer lasting effects, and come in many varieties. 

Smoking Cannabis Flower

When you smoke cannabis flower you have many options to choose from such as smoking from a bong, blunt, joint, or bowl. All of these methods involve grinding up the flower, lighting it, and smoking it. Smoking cannabis flower makes it easier to find the right dose and control your experience. Smoking also works quickly and it only takes a few hours for the effects to wear off. 

Topicals 

Cannabis topicals are a great resource for those looking for pain relief without the intoxicating effects that cannabis can have if consumed orally or by inhalation. Topicals come in the form of balms, lotions, salves, and more that you can apply directly over joints and muscles. The application is fast and easy and there are various THC and CBD formulas available.
