By Space Coast Daily // May 3, 2021
It is estimated that in the united states alone, there are 100 million people to smoke weed regularly. Weed smokers come from all walks of life; rich, poor, and everything in between.
Regardless of their background, they all have something in common: they want to know how to consume marijuana efficiently and effectively without wasting money on ineffective methods.
With technology becoming so advanced, there are now so many different methods and ways to consume marijuana, and choosing just one can be very overwhelming. Some methods of consumption take a bit of practice, while others are super simple and easy, such as bongs for example.
Choosing the right one for you is all down to personal preference, as well as which stores are accessible to you. Many retailers have moved online, like Grass City, and sell a wide variety of products. There are more ways to consume marijuana than ever before and if you are new to marijuana or would just like a different way to consume it, here are a few things you can try.
Dry herb vaporizers
Many people these days are starting to understand more and more the danger that comes along with inhaling smoke and smoking marijuana, and just how much of a risk it is for their lungs. If you are looking for a similar way to consume your marijuana but want to take out some of the risks that come with smoking, you could try using a dry herb vaporizer.
A dry herb vaporizer is exactly what it sounds like. It vaporizes the compound of the marijuana itself into an inhalable vapor. This works by putting the finely ground weed into the chamber of the vape, and then through extreme temperature and heated plates, the compounds within the herb vaporize. Just like smoking, the effects can be felt relatively quickly, within a few minutes and they last a decent amount of time.
If you are not really one who enjoys inhaling your marijuana there are so many other options out there for you. One of the most popular ways to consume marijuana these days is through edibles. Essentially, edibles are food that contains a concentrate of the marijuana plant that either comes in the form of oil or butter that is incorporated into the food when cooking.
The most common types of edibles are small baked goods such as brownies and cupcakes but now businesses seem to be branching out more and more and have started developing other forms of edibles such as candies, drinks, and even full-on meals for people to enjoy. The possibilities are endless and there is bound to be something for everyone to enjoy.
More on the medicinal side of the marijuana industry, topicals have also become increasingly popular in the last few years, especially for those who are no desire to consume cannabis products. Topical marijuana products come in the form of gels and creams that can be applied to the skin or areas that are experiencing pain and inflammation. These products are a great way to directly target the pain and quickly and efficiently get to the source of the problem.
Yet another method mainly used in the medicinal world of marijuana, is tinctures. These are essentially the fasted way to get the most effective relief from the medicinal side of marijuana. Tinctures are highly concentrated oils or liquids that can be placed under the tongue where they can be absorbed into the bloodstream as fast as possible.
Tinctures also have an incredibly strong effect and are a great way to have much more controlled doses of marijuana, especially if you are using it for medicinal purposes.
One of the newer items on the market is Dab Rigs. These beautiful, glass, works of art are another way to consume marijuana through the inhalation of vapor. Unlike the dry herb vaporizer which just uses extreme heat and the herb itself, dab rigs make use of a concentrate that comes in the form of a wax or oil that is heated through combustion and then inhaled as vapor. This is another way to feel the effects much faster and you can also control your dosage to ensure you are not having too much.
Dab rigs are much newer technology and a great place to start if you are looking to get into the world of marijuana concentrates or looking for something a bit classier than smoking a joint.
