CONSUMING CANNABIS: DIFFERENT METHODS AND PRODUCT TYPES
Cannabis has so many medical and recreational effects on the human body and the three basic methods of delivering the active components of this wonderful plant to the different systems are inhaling, ingestion, or topical application.
Many medical marijuana users in Florida have noticed that the effects of cannabis on the mental and physical systems vary with regards to the delivery method employed. Some are definitely more effective than others and this is an essential consideration often neglected by a good number of individuals.
When cannabis flower is smoked, the cannabinoids’ chemical structure is altered by the heat and psychoactive THC is created. Even though a good amount of THC will get into your bloodstream, a good portion remains in the mouth connecting with the mouth’s cannabinoid receptors and also in the smoke-exposed tissues. There is a wide range of available devices for cannabis smoking including, rolling papers, hand pipes, hookahs, water pipes and even home-made equipment.
Even with these devices, those who require higher doses of cannabis, maybe for health purposes, will face difficulties attaining the required dose via smoking. It is much more advisable to ingest cannabis when it is recommended from a doctor for therapeutic purposes.
You’re doctor will need to write your recommendation for smokable flower or add it to an existing.
You do not necessarily need to ignite your cannabis in order to be able to enjoy its effects. The chemical compounds found in cannabis are vaporized at gentle and less harmful temperatures and many people prefer the taste of vaporized cannabis to that of smoking cannabis. The vapor from inhalers and vapes don’t cause as much harm as smoking presents to the lungs. This is another method through which cannabis can be inhaled.
ORAL INGESTING METHODS
The first method of ingesting cannabis is by infusing it into drinks and food. Marijuana edibles have expanded so rapidly that anything can be infused with cannabis. Edibles in Florida are limited, however you can infuse your meals at home but you have to be very cautious with the doses. It is advisable that when you want to take cannabis through this method, you should begin with a low dose and exercise a lot of patience. This is because, with edibles, the digestive process slows down the time in which the drug kicks in and its psychoactive effects can be very intense.
These are basically all cannabis concentrates which are consumed orally. They mostly come in the form of plastic applicators or capsules which can either be consumed directly or added to drinks or food. You also have to be careful with the dose as they take time to kick in as well and can be very intense.
These are infused liquids which extract the cannabis compounds via the use of an alcohol soak. Tinctures are applied under the tongue directly, ensuring that they enter the bloodstream immediately as opposed to other edibles. This causes the effects to be felt a lot quicker and it is easier to control the dose. They come in a variety of cannabinoid profiles, potencies, and flavors taking care of your medical needs and specific desires.
Cannabis can also be ingested via the use of capsules. THC, which is the strongest medicinal cannabis compound can be prescribed by licensed physicians. In order to reap the optimal medicinal benefits of cannabis, getting rid of all the unwanted side effects, all the natural compounds found in cannabis should be taken together. This can be done by taking cannabis capsules.
Suppositories are small, cylindrical dosages of medicines which are either administered by rectal or vaginal insertion. They come in the form of shea or cocoa butter which act like carriers of the medical cannabis. After inserting the suppositories, they melt, allowing the medicine to flow into your system. This method of ingestion is very effective in the treatment of pain for a lot of medical conditions.
This refers to other delivery methods involving the administration of the complete cannabis extract with activated cannabinoids through decarboxylation. Usually, in the form of a thick oil, absorption of the activated cannabinoids is possible through the skin without any cerebral stimulation. The element of no ‘’high’’ feeling with the topical delivery method of cannabis makes it perfect for people looking for localized relief and a clear head as well.
Even though it’s more difficult to dose cannabis when using the ingestion methods, they are preferable to inhaling as they are a healthy substitute to smoking which has long-term negative health effects on our bodies. When using the edible methods, specifically edibles, you can consume cannabis in whatever you choose be it a muffin, candy, pizza, tea, quinoa salad or even in the form of cannabis butter.
