Are you new to the world of marijuana and cannabis and want to know what products are available for you to consume your marijuana with? Are you tired of smoking a regular old joint and want to try something different but don’t know what’s out there?
Since the gradual legalization of recreational marijuana use is slowly making its way around the world, there is a lot more demand in the industry and they now have the desire to constantly innovate. The marijuana industry has come out with some incredible technology that can aid users in their marijuana consumption and allow for them to try out different ways of consuming.
The stigma around cannabis is slowly disappearing and this means that more and more people are becoming interested in trying it. If you are one of these people, and are having a hard time choosing a way to consume your marijuana, here are a few different ways.
Consume Through Dabs
One of the most innovative additions to the cannabis market has been dab rigs. The idea behind it is similar to that of bongs which have been around for a long time, instead, they rather avoid any combustion and make use of a concentrate in the form of a wax or oil instead of the dry herb. This means that there is no smoke involved. Bongs are a type of water pipe. They come in all shapes and sizes, but they’re typically made from glass-like materials like borosilicate or Pyrex. Some people prefer using bongs because the smoke is cooled by water before it reaches their lungs. This makes smoking less harsh on your throat and lungs than inhaling dry smoke directly from a joint, blunt, or bowl would be. Molino Glass offers a wide variety of glass bongs, and you can pick the one that matches your personal preferences if you like this way of consuming marijuana.
Dabs and Bongs
Dab rigs still allow you to inhale vapor like a bong, but they let you use a concentrate which allows you to choose the strength and adjust it to your liking. A dab rig is made up of a body piece that houses a water chamber, and a mount piece, as well as a nail which is what is heated for the concentrate to be placed on. You will also need a lighter, and some kind of dabber to make your experience a bit easier. This is a great option for those who still want the same effects as inhaling the product, but don’t want any of the harmful risks that come along with smoking.
Consume Through Capsules
Marijuana has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries, and today this idea is still going strong. Marijuana has many healing properties and is known to help treat the symptoms of a variety of conditions.
Oftentimes, those who make use of marijuana for medicinal purposes would rather stay away from smoking or vaping it and take it in a more controlled way. One of the best ways to do this is through capsules. This has a similar effect to that of edible. They will take a bit longer to kick in, but they will have a much stronger effect.
It is great for medicinal purposes because of how easy it is to control the dosage, and the fact that a capsule feels more medicinal than smoking a joint ever would.
Edibles have been around for years and years, but when you offer people an edible, most of the time they will be expecting a baked good such as a cookie or brownie. In recent years, edible marketing within the industry has grown incredibly and now expands across a variety of different food groups.
When looking at the range of edibles you will find everything from candies and gummies, to baked goods, to drinks, even fully-cooked meals with cannabis butter or oil. One of the biggest perks of edibles is that you will have a much stronger high, however, it is easy to have too much because the effects will take much longer to kick in.
And Through Drops
Another common method of consumption for those who use it medicinally is through tinctures. This is because there is no social element behind it and it is a great way to control your dosage.
Another reason why tinctures are relatively popular is that it is the most direct way into your bloodstream, meaning this method is the fastest. Essentially, tinctures are liquid concentrated drops that are placed under the tongue and absorbed directly into the blood stream. When making use of tinctures, you will feel a similar effect to that of smoking or vaping, however, you will just feel it much sooner.
