I have experimented with all different cannabis consumption methods.
I’ve been shopping at the local dispensary since they first opened their doors several years ago. They offer weekly specials that provide affordability and an opportunity to sample new products. Each type of consumption method provides unique benefits. Tinctures are great for beginners because there is no expertise or extra gear required. The tiny bottle fits into a pocket and is wonderfully portable. It includes a handy dropper that allows for very precise dosing. All it takes is a couple of drops placed under the tongue. The sublingual absorption of cannabinoids results in quick onset of effects. Plus, no smoke or odors are created. When stored properly, tinctures have an extra long shelf-life. Edibles are also easy. They are available in a wide selection of options. There are gummies in all sorts of flavors and potency levels. There are lots of baked goods, beverages, chocolates, hard candies, popcorn and even cooking oils. I need to be more cautious about dosage because edibles create a more intense and long-lasting high. The effects also take a while to be fully realized. However, the package provides a very clear understanding of the percentage of various cannabinoids. I can easily cut a chocolate bar or a peanut butter cup in half to lower the amount of THC I’m consuming. The consumption method is especially convenient and discreet. I am also a fan of cannabis vapes. When I was first getting started, vapes provided an easy way to smoke. They are available in disposable pens that require nothing more than a push of a button. I can purchase my favorite strains in everything from high THC levels to full spectrum CBD. Because vapes avoid combustion, the cannabinoids and terpenes are preserved for an added boost of flavor. I like that vapes are discreet.
