There are many ways to consume cannabis. Every stoner has their own favorite method that they stick to. But is there any significant difference in them and the impact on the body and environment that they provide? Let us see what choices stoners have and what the benefits of each method are.
Smoking is the most common way of consuming cannabis. There is no doubt that for most of us, the first experience with weed included a joint or a pipe.
As it turns out, there are many ways to smoke cannabis, but none of them are completely harmless. The main problem with smoking is the damage to our lungs. The smoke contains carcinogens that are dangerous for our bodies. Whether you smoke pure joints or blunts with the addition of tobacco, the process will have negative consequences that mostly impact your lungs.
If you use marijuana as a medical remedy, you had better learn how else you can consume it without damaging your body even more. However, if your purpose is completely recreational, you may want to choose this way. Smoking weed provides you with an instant and arguably the most potent high you can get from the plant. This impact cannot even be compared to eating edibles.
Besides, using joints and pipes is the most convenient way to get stoned. Edibles are more difficult to prepare, and vaporizers are much more expensive.
Edibles are considered a light and easy version of marijuana consumption. Marijuana-infused food is getting more and more popular. Today, those people who do not like to inhale smoke and vapor have a good alternative. With edibles, you can receive the medical benefits of the plant and indulge in a treat at the same time.
Marijuana edibles companies are constantly popping up around the country. Today, anything you can imagine can be infused with cannabis. Apart from being extremely delicious, these products are very useful.
However, you should mind that the effects take longer to kick in than a joint. On the other hand, they also last longer. The high will come to you in about 30-50 minutes after you eat a product. The effects can last up to eight hours. You will find that the high provided by edibles somewhat differs from the high after smoking or vaporizing.
Edibles are more expensive than smoking, but the experience is worth your money.
Compared to smoking, vaporizing marijuana is a less harmful way of getting high. There are almost no harmful carcinogens in the cannabis vapor. Health benefits are the driving force behind the increasing popularity of vaporizers. Besides, by vaporizing, you do not harm the environment.
However, this way of consuming weed is rather expensive. A quality vaporizer will cost you a lot of money. And if you want the process to be beneficial as well as pleasant, you should pay attention to the quality of the accessory. The most important factor of the process is setting the right temperature, so your device has to be equipped with the necessary controllers.
Choosing the temperature is important because depending on it, cannabis will influence you in various ways. For example, low temperatures can provide you with the most flavorful vapor of your life. At the same time, high temperatures will produce not the vapor of flavor but the vapor of intensity. The effects will be almost instant. Anything that is above 370ºF will do. Just remember not to heat the herbs more than 450 degrees.
