Cannabis Consumption Tips
There are so many ways to use and enjoy cannabis. Pretty much everyone is familiar with the tried and true method of smoking, but there’s so much more to explore. You can try edibles, you can use topicals, you can vape, you can go with a tincture, or you can even dab. No matter what method you choose, follow the mantra – start low, go slow – to see how it affects you. First-time users may not feel very high. Don’t get frustrated. This is normal. Go slow and try again later or on another day. Read on to learn more about your options.
Vaping is a discrete and easy way to consume marijuana with minimal setup. Purchase a vaporizer cartridge loaded with THC oil and a battery attachment. Now you can enjoy mary jane anytime! Vape strains come and go in small batches.
A dab usually refers to a dose of concentrate that is heated on a hot surface and then inhaled through a glass rig or electronic dab pen. Make sure there is water on hand, and somewhere you can lay down if you get the spins. Dabs hit hard, so you should start with one and see how you feel. Just like with flower, we recommend starting with lower percentage concentrates and working your way up.
Edibles infused with marijuana are slow acting products, which means that it can take up to two hours to feel its effects. Edibles can take the form of liquids, baked goods, candies, or tinctures. Start slowly with a single 5mg serving of edible to see how it affects you. You can always take another serving at a later time if you don’t feel the effects. However, consider when you’ve last eaten, etc. before upping your dosage.
Topicals are non-psychoactive balms, salves, and oils that users apply directly to the body instead of consuming. They can act as a muscle relaxant and as an antiseptic ointment, so they’re great for aches, pains and massages.
