consumption methods

Each method has its advantages and may appeal to different preferences and lifestyles. We're here to help you choose something that suits you!

Inhalation methods

  • Smoking: Burning cannabis flower and inhaling the smoke. Smoking cannabis involves inhaling the smoke produced by burning dried cannabis flower. It is one of the most common and traditional methods of cannabis consumption, offering fast-acting effects.

  • Vaporizing: Heating cannabis flower or concentrates to produce vapor without combustion. Vaporizing cannabis involves heating cannabis flower or concentrates to a temperature that releases cannabinoids and terpenes in the form of vapor, without combustion. Vaporizing is considered a healthier alternative to smoking as it produces fewer harmful byproducts.

types

 

Joints

  • Joints, also known as marijuana cigarettes, are cannabis rolled in rolling papers. They are one of the most common and traditional methods of smoking cannabis. Joints offer a convenient and portable way to consume cannabis, and they can be rolled with various sizes and shapes of rolling papers.

Blunts

  • Blunts are similar to joints but are rolled with cigar wrappers or tobacco leaves instead of rolling papers. They are typically larger and offer a slower burn compared to joints. Blunts are popular among cannabis users who enjoy the combination of cannabis and tobacco flavors.

Pipes

  • Pipes are handheld devices used for smoking cannabis flower. They typically consist of a bowl where cannabis is placed, a mouthpiece, and a carburetor (or "carb") to control airflow. Pipes offer a simple and efficient method of smoking cannabis and come in various materials, shapes, and sizes.

Bongs

  • Bongs, also known as water pipes, are filtration devices used for smoking cannabis. They typically consist of a water chamber, a bowl where cannabis is placed, a downstem to direct smoke into the water, and a mouthpiece. Bongs filter and cool the smoke through the water, resulting in a smoother and more enjoyable smoking experience.

Hookahs

  • Hookahs are multi-stemmed water pipes used for smoking flavored tobacco or cannabis. They typically consist of a water chamber, one or more hoses with mouthpieces, and a bowl where flavored tobacco or cannabis is placed. Hookahs are popular in social settings and offer a communal smoking experience.

Chillum or One-Hitter

  • Chillums, also known as one-hitters, are small pipes designed for single hits of cannabis. They are typically straight tubes with a bowl at one end and a mouthpiece at the other. Chillums offer a discreet and portable method of smoking cannabis.

Dry Herb Vaporizers

  • Dry herb vaporizers are designed specifically for vaporizing cannabis flower. They typically feature a chamber where finely ground cannabis flower is loaded. The device heats the flower to a temperature that releases cannabinoids and terpenes in the form of vapor, without combusting the plant material. Dry herb vaporizers come in portable or desktop versions and offer a convenient and efficient method of consuming cannabis.

Vape Pens

  • Vape pens, also known as cartridge-based vaporizers, are compact and portable devices designed for vaporizing cannabis concentrates such as oil cartridges or distillates. They consist of a battery component and a cartridge containing cannabis oil. When activated, the battery heats the oil, producing vapor that is inhaled through the mouthpiece. Vape pens are discreet, easy to use, and offer precise dosing, making them popular among cannabis consumers.

Dab Rigs

  • Dab rigs, also known as oil rigs or concentrate rigs, are specialized glass water pipes used for vaporizing cannabis concentrates such as wax, shatter, or budder. They typically consist of a water chamber, a heating element (often a nail or banger), and a mouthpiece. The concentrate is placed on the heated surface, where it vaporizes upon contact, producing vapor that is inhaled through the mouthpiece. Dab rigs offer a potent and flavorful cannabis experience but require more equipment and technique compared to other vaporizing methods.

Desktop Vaporizers

  • Desktop vaporizers are larger, stationary devices designed for vaporizing cannabis flower or concentrates. They typically feature advanced heating systems, precise temperature control, and larger chambers for vaporizing larger quantities of cannabis. Desktop vaporizers offer superior vapor quality and efficiency compared to portable devices but are less convenient for on-the-go use.

Pod Systems

  • Pod systems are similar to vape pens but utilize pre-filled pods containing cannabis oil instead of cartridges. They offer a convenient and mess-free method of vaporizing cannabis concentrates, with disposable or refillable pod options available.

oral methods

  • Edibles: Consuming cannabis-infused food or beverages. Edibles are food or beverage products infused with cannabis extracts. They come in various forms, including gummies, chocolates, baked goods, and beverages. Edibles offer a discreet and long-lasting cannabis experience but may have a delayed onset of effects.

  • Tinctures: Dropping liquid cannabis extract under the tongue for sublingual absorption. Tinctures are liquid cannabis extracts made by soaking cannabis flower or concentrates in alcohol or glycerin. They offer a fast-acting and precise dosing method.

  • Capsules: Capsules contain measured amounts of cannabis oil or powdered cannabis flower encapsulated in gelatin or vegetable-based shells. They offer a convenient and discreet method of consuming cannabis, with precise dosing and no need for additional preparation. Cannabis capsules are typically swallowed whole and metabolized in the digestive system, providing long-lasting effects similar to other oral methods. Capsules are popular among medical cannabis users and individuals seeking precise dosing and controlled release of effects.

topical methods

  • Topicals are cannabis-infused creams, lotions, or balms applied directly onto the skin. They are absorbed through the skin to provide localized relief from pain, inflammation, or skin conditions without producing psychoactive effects.

sublingual methods

 

  • ​Sublingual sprays are liquid cannabis extracts administered by spraying under the tongue for sublingual absorption. They offer a discreet and convenient method of consumption, with fast-acting effects similar to tinctures.
