A Beginner's Guide to Various Ways to Consume Cannabis

It’s 2023, and the world is finally starting to accept cannabis more and more as a part of healthy living.

The cannabis industry is booming, and there are so many different ways to consume cannabis from edibles to vapes to tinctures.

In this blog, we’ll be exploring the various ways you can consume cannabis. Whether you are a cannabis-curious beginner or a cannabis-familiar veteran, this article will help you find the perfect way to consume cannabis.


One of the most common ways to consume cannabis is by smoking it. People smoke cannabis in various ways, from rolling a joint to using a pipe, bong, or vaporizer. Smoking is quick, with the effects kicking in almost immediately. However, smoking can be harsh on the lungs and cause respiratory problems for some users.


Edibles are a fun way to consume cannabis that allows you to consume it without smoking. Edibles come in a wide range of forms, such as gummies, chocolates, brownies, and even drinks. Eating edibles takes longer for the effects to kick in, and the high lasts longer compared to smoking. Eating too many edibles at once can result in an intense experience, so always start with a low dose.


Tinctures are made by infusing the cannabis plant into alcohol or oil. They come in a small bottle with a dropper, and a few drops can be added to food or drinks or used sublingually. Tinctures are a discreet way to consume cannabis without smoking and have a quicker onset time compared to edibles.


Topicals are cannabis-infused products used externally, such as creams, lotions, and balms. They are mainly used for pain relief, inflammation, and relaxation. Topicals do not produce any psychoactive effects, so they are a good option for those who want to experience the benefits of cannabis without the high.


Vaping involves heating cannabis oil using a vape pen or a vaporizer. Vaping is considered to be a healthier alternative to smoking as it produces fewer harmful toxins. Vaping produces a quicker onset of effects compared to edibles, and the high is similar to smoking cannabis. However, vaping can be addictive, and users need to be careful of the quality of the vaping product.

There are various ways to consume cannabis, and each method has its pros and cons.

Whether you prefer smoking, eating, or using cannabis in topical form, there is an option that suits your needs. Cannabis is no longer a taboo subject and has many health benefits that are worth exploring. It’s essential to start with a low dose when trying any new form of cannabis, and always purchase from a reputable source.
