There are many ways to consume cannabis today. The old school joint is still a popular choice. Then there is vaping. Next is the world of edibles. There are so many products that fall into the category of consumable cannabis. Join us as we give you a brief overview of each one.
The all iconic joint. Everyone has seen one if not in person then on TV. The joint is the flagship choice of cannabis smokers from the early days until now. Legal dispensaries will even sell pre-rolled joints, in some states.
The less talked about ‘bowl’ is still used today. Those pretty glass pipes that you see at the head shop. You know the ones that are for ‘tobacco use only’. Yeah, those are the one we’re talking about.
Next, is the blunt. Blunts are cannabis wrapped in tobacco leaf. This is similar to the mixing of tobacco and cannabis into a spliff that is smoked mostly in Europe.
The most common way to vape cannabis today is with one of the many different cartridges. You screw them onto any 510 tread battery. Hit the button and rip away. They don’t smell as bad the traditional joint. Hand help vapes are so common now as well that know one in public will look at you sideways for taking your medicine.
The more traditional form of vaping cannabis is with a table top vape of some sort. There are ‘whip vape’ and ‘bag vape.’ The whip vape is normally a box with a heating element and a hose with a mouth piece. The bag vape you might have seen in a movie. A bag is put on the vape a fan is run that blows the cannabis vapor into the special bag. When the bag is full its removed and you can vape your heart out.
There are many many different kinds of edibles. The most thought of edible is the ‘pot brownie’. While wonderful and nostalgic it was only the starting point. Today we are blessed to have more than just brownies. There are tinctures. Tinctures are concentrated liquid form of cannabis. That can be easily ingested or mixed in with any beverage. There are capsules or cannabis pills. The most important thing to remember about cannabis edibles is they have a onset time. Wait at least 90 minutes after consuming a edible to take another. You don’t know how many people have said “It’s not working. Im going to take another.” Then within five to ten minutes the first dose kicks in and they are floored. Now waiting for the second dose to hit. The moral of the story is to know your limits.
Honestly, if you can imagine it you can put cannabis in it. There is even a High Times cannabis cookbook.
Get creative and add your medicine to what ever you see fit.
