When people think of consuming cannabis, the first thing that comes to their mind is smoking it, but did you know that there are many other ways you can enjoy cannabis without actually having to smoke it?
Here are 6 ways to enjoy cannabis without having to smoke it:
A popular way to consume cannabis is to infuse cannabis with food and beverages. This can include anything from baked goods such as brownies and cookies, candies such as lollipops and gummy bears to teas and wines. The effects of most edibles take a while to kick in and can pack quite a big punch so be careful!
Vaporizing, or vaping, has become very popular over the years as it is a much healthier alternative to smoking. Unlike smoking, vaporizers heats the THC oil to just the right temperature which releases the THC and CBD without all the other wanted substances released when smoking. Vaping is also virtually odorless and reduces the amount of weed you have to use to get high.
Not everyone who uses cannabis uses it for the purpose of getting high. Other persons want the anti-inflammatory benefits of cannabis without its psychoactive effects. To do so, cannabis-infused topicals such as creams, lotions, and balms are used to reduce localized pain, soreness, and inflammation.
Tinctures are another way to enjoy cannabis without having to smoke it. These are liquid alcohol or oil-based cannabis extract that is placed underneath the tongue for fast-acting results. This is very discreet and is typically used by persons who use marijuana for medical purposes.
Ingestible cannabis-infused oils can come in a capsule form or in a bottle. This oil can be swallowed as in or added to food and drinks. These come in a variety of concentrations and can be quite potent so be mindful of dosage!
Like tinctures, cannabis-infused sprays that are applied to the tongue. These sprays come in a variety of flavors and potency and are also very discreet. They can be used for both recreational and medical purposes, especially for persons like asthmatics who are unable to comfortably inhale smoke.
There are many other ways you can enjoy cannabis without smoking it. Though this is just a small list, hopefully at least one of these methods appeal to you.
