Cannabis Consumption Methods
Cannabis Consumption Methods - Smoking
One of the most well-known ways to consume cannabis is by smoking it. When you smoke cannabis, you light the flower and breathe in the smoke. Cannabis flower can be smoked in several ways.
Canabis Consumption Through Piping:
Pipes are one of the most common devices for smoking cannabis because they are lightweight, compact, and simple to use. To use a pipe, place the cannabis in the bowl-shaped area on one end (this is referred to as "packing a bowl") and light it. The smoke passes into the pipe's chamber and out the mouthpiece.
Canabis Consumption Through Water pipes:
Water pipes, including bongs, operate in the same way, except that the smoke is filtered by water stored in a chamber. The water cools the smoke, allowing for a more pleasant inhalation experience.
Canabis Consumption Through Joints:
If pipes are not your thing, consider using joints instead. Joints are made by wrapping cannabis into rolling papers, lighting one end, and inhaling from the other, much like a cannabis cigarette.
Canabis Consumption Through Blunts:
Blunts are like joints, but instead of rolling papers, they use cigar paper. A cigar is usually hollowed out and the tobacco replaced with cannabis, but blunt wraps are available. Blunts are often usually bigger than joints and contain more cannabis.
Cannabis Consumption Methods - Edibles
There are two ways to ingest cannabis orally:
Canabis Consumption Through Edibles:
Cannabinoids are absorbed through the digestive tract when you consume a cannabis-infused beverage, baked goods, or gummy. Edibles have a delayed onset of 20 minutes to three hours due to this. Edibles are one of the most direct methods of consumption available. Simply consume, chew, and wait for the results to take place.
Canabis Consumption Through Tinctures:
Tinctures are tinctures made from cannabis steeped in alcohol absorbed into the blood vessels under the tongue (sublingually). Put a few drops of the cannabis tincture under your tongue and leave it there for a few moments to allow the cannabis to absorb and then gulp down the remaining liquid. Any cannabinoids not ingested sublingually will be absorbed through the digestive tract. Because of the dual absorption sites, tinctures taken sublingually may have a fast onset of effects and a delayed onset, like an edible.
Cannabis Consumption Methods - Vaping
Vaping is another inhalation process that has grown in popularity because of recent technological advancements. Vaping is the process of heating cannabis flowers or concentrates to temperatures just below the point of combustion, The active compounds, such as cannabinoids and terpenes, are transformed into vapor, then inhaled. Many people agree that vaping is a better alternative to smoking because it does not produce the same amount of tar or carcinogens as smoking. Vaping cannabis can be done in a variety of ways.
Canabis Consumption Through Vaporizers:
Both concentrates and flowers can be used in vaporizers. Add the cannabis to a heating chamber, set the temperature, and inhale the vapor through the mouthpiece. Vaporizers are available in both tabletop and portable models, which require a firm surface to stand on.
Canabis Consumption Through Vape pens:
Vape pens are designed exclusively for oil or distillate vaping. They usually resemble cells, as the name suggests. A cartridge containing the cannabis oil or distillate, and a battery, which provides the heat, make up these devices. Ensure that you purchase vape pens from a reputable, legal dispensary, as illicit, off-label vapes have been connected to various health problems.
Canabis Consumption Through Dabbing:
Dabbing is a great method of vaporizing cannabis concentrates with a dab rig that involves heating a glass, ceramic, or titanium "nail" and adding the concentrate directly to the hot surface, which converts it to vapor for ingestion.
Cannabis Consumption Methods - Topicals
Topical is not precisely a consumption process, but it is a distribution method that deserves to be mentioned. Topical products allow you to absorb cannabinoids via your skin, where they may have localized pain or muscle soreness effects. You do not get any psychoactive effects from topical, unlike other types of ingestion.
