Consuming cannabis can be done in a number of ways, with smoking and inhaling being the well-known option. However, not everyone likes to smoke. Smoking cannabis can bring an unpleasant burning to the throat, coughing from a harsh inhale, or the aftertaste of the smoke. For those who prefer an alternative method, stay tuned as we list 6 different ways to consume cannabis without smoking!
Cannabis does not require a torched lighter to still reap the benefits. In fact, its chemical compounds vaporize at a much lower, less harmful temperature. The vapor is easier on the lungs than inhaling smoke from a pipe.
Edibles are cannabis infused food or drinks, allowing you to eat the THC rather than smoking. The diversity of marijuana edibles are quickly expanding, allowing you to infuse anything that calls for butter or oil, such as cookies, brownies, bread, and much more! The key to ingesting edibles is to be aware of your dosing. It’s important to start with caution with a low dose and being patient, as edibles take longer to kick in.
Ingestible oils are cannabis concentrates that can be taken orally. They often are packaged in capsule or plastic applicators, either of which could be consumed or sprinkled to any food or drinks. Similar to edibles, the effects can take awhile to kick in so be mindful of dosing!
For those unfamiliar, tinctures are infused liquids that extract the cannabis compounds using an alcohol soak. Simply place a couple drops of the infused liquid under the tongue, and the tincture will immediately enter the bloodstream.
Topicals are cannabis infused balms or lotions that can be directly applied to the skin, offering a relief of pain, soreness, or inflammation. Topicals are known to treat the symptoms without leaving the psychoactive effects, leaving you with a clear mind and zero “high” feeling.
Similar to vaporizing, dabbing is a method in which cannabis concentrates are placed on a heated water pipe attachment and inhaled for intensely potent effects. Dabbing is a popular method of experiencing a potent high without inhaling harsh smoke. This method is suggested for experienced smokers, as the high concentrates may come as a shock to a first-time cannabis smoker.
