If you only associate cannabis with smoking, it’s time to branch out! There are plenty of ways to get high or medicate with cannabis. Thanks to legal cannabis and well-stocked dispensaries, it’s never been easier to explore and experiment with different products and consumption methods. Here are the most popular ways to get high and what you need to know about them.
Most Common Ways To Get High: Smoking & Vaping Bud
Smoking and vaping are the consumption methods that most people associate with cannabis. And thanks to modern cultivation methods, cannabis flower is better than ever before, making smoking and vaping dried cannabis even more enjoyable. But there are many more consumption methods that shouldn’t be overlooked.
Innovative Cannabis: Dabbing & Vape Cartridges
The emergence of cannabis concentrates has brought with it even more methods of consuming cannabis. For instance, vape cartridges are pre-filled with concentrated oil and can be quickly screwed into a 510 thread vape battery to begin producing vapor within seconds. Vape cartridges are perfect for on-the-go consumption as they are very easy to carry and store, while also being more discreet than conventional smoking or vaping devices.
Dabbing – the process of vaping small ‘dabs’ of concentrates – has also emerged as a quick and convenient way to enjoy concentrated cannabis. Whether you’re dabbing with a dab rig or a wax pen, you can expect thick flavorful clouds of hard-hitting cannabis vapor! Concentrates like our Grape Animals Shatter, Blackberry Pie badder, and Frosted Melon badder are a delight for both the mind and the taste buds.
Discreet Ways To Get High: Ingesting Edibles & Using Tincture
There are also more discreet and health-conscious ways to get high that will allow you to avoid smoke or vapor altogether.
Ingesting cannabis edibles is a great way to enjoy a strong buzz without exposing your lungs to smoke. Edibles can sometimes take over an hour to really kick in, but they can also last for 6–8 hours. This makes them an excellent option for those looking for a long-lasting high and for those looking for long-lasting medical relief. Whether you’re looking for chocolatey baked goods or mouth-watering candies, you can find them on our shelves any day of the week!
Sublingual cannabis tinctures are another smoke-less option that is preferred by many medical patients. When liquid cannabis extract is placed under the tongue, it is absorbed by membranes and transported into the bloodstream from where it can quickly produce effects. Although it can take up to an hour for these effects to peak, many people start feeling them within minutes. Tinctures also give you more precise control over exactly how much of each cannabinoid you wish to consume, making them a great option for medical cannabis patients.
Cannabis Therapy: Applying Topicals
Topicals won’t get you high, but they still deserve a mention for their impressive therapeutic potential.
Cannabis topicals are creams, salves, and lotions that have been infused with cannabis extract. Topicals are absorbed into the skin to produce localized effects, but never enter the bloodstream to produce systemic ones. Topicals reach deep inside of muscles and joints to provide localized relief in the spot they are applied. Additionally, topical cannabis has shown potential in everything from cancer to acne and psoriasis. Easy to carry, convenient to use, and effective, it’s no mystery why so many people suffering from localized pain and inflammation have turned to cannabis topicals.
