There are many types of marijuana products, and if you are a newbie, it can be overwhelming to decide what works for you. You need to find a marijuana product that delivers the desired effects and benefits to offer a good weed use experience. This post guides you on the different types of marijuana products and how to use them.
The flower is the smokable buds of marijuana which you will find in many marijuana dispensaries. The cannabis bud or flower is cultivated, harvested, dried, and cured properly before it finally gets to the shelves of a marijuana dispensary. The flower is the most popular type of marijuana product. You can roll it in a blunt and smoke or smoke it out of a pipe. If you are uninitiated, it is advisable to smoke one puff, wait for some minutes, smoke another one, and so forth while giving your body the time to adjust because the effects kick in very fast. Marijuana buds are the most affordable option, are easy to find, and the high effect kicks in immediately.
Cannabis concentrates are made by removing the plant material and other impurities from the cannabis plant to remain with only the plant’s desirable components, such as terpenes and cannabinoids. As such, concentrates have high levels of terpenes and cannabinoids than the flower. If you like inhaling smoke, you can vaporize concentrates with a specific device meant to heat the product to release cannabinoid-filled flavors, which are more potent and pleasant. Therefore, you don’t need to worry about inhaling combusted buds. Concentrates produce very strong cannabis effects faster, so you need only a small amount of the product.
Cannabis edibles are foods or drinks infused with cannabis flowers or concentrates. They offer a good and discrete way to ingest cannabis without the distinct smell and raw test of cannabis. Cannabis edibles come in many forms, including cakes, candies, chocolate bars, lozenges, gummies, mint, cooking oil, beverages, etc. Marijuana edibles are very easy to purchase in a dispensary nearby as long you are of the legal age-21years. As the name suggests, you only have to eat them. Since they are absorbed into the digestive system, cannabis edibles offer a delayed-release but extended effect of cannabis. As such, it is easy to overdo with edibles. Check the amount of THC levels per serving and only ingest the right amount. You should wait for two hours before taking another dose as edibles’ effects have delayed onset times.
Tinctures refer to extracted solutions of cannabis meant to be ingested orally via a dropper. You administer the drops of the solution under your tongue. The cannabis is absorbed into the body through the blood vessels under the tongue. If not, it makes its way to the digestive tract to be absorbed like edibles. Tinctures allow for discreetness, quicker absorption but should be taken with caution as they can have delayed effects.
Topicals are cannabis-infused skin products such as oils, lotions, creams, balms, and salves satta designed to be applied directly onto the skin surface. Topicals have a localized effect of cannabis to the area applied without a high. They target specific ailments of tissues and muscles. They are suitable for aches, muscle pains, scars, recent surgeries and have a limited effect on the mind.
Your choice of cannabis product depends on factors such as the desired effect and budget.
