One question I always get asked is “What are the best/healthiest ways to consume THC?”. Well here are some of the more commonly known ways of consuming weed.
One-Hitters are not so popular around here because I’ve only seen them a couple of times. These can come in many different styles, in my opinion the ones that look like a cigarette are the most popular. One-Hitters are not my style I don’t like getting ash in my mouth and they simply just don’t get me to the level that I want. I will say they are very stealthy for when your somewhere public and you want to take a quick hit.
Tea & Sodas
Teas can be made fairly easy by boiling water and pouring it over your leaves and stems and letting them soak for about half an hour. Adding oil, butter or alcohol is necessary for dissolving the THC. It is a nice way to relax and drink some tea for those cold winter months.
Edibles often made with butters or oils derived from the cannabis plant, often called cannabutter or cannabis infused oil, are simple and give you a different pleasant feeling. It is more of a deeper body feeling mostly used for body aches. The problem with edibles is that every edible has a different amount of THC as well as they taste amazing. People also tend to overdose on them. Edibles are like drinking alcohol; your body takes more time to digest the goodies so you really don’t feel it at first. It takes some time which causes a lot of people to eat more (like me). My experience with edibles was great at first until everything hit and my stomach couldn’t take it anymore. I will definitely be munching on these again now that I have a little bit of experience.
Tinctures & Tonics
I’ll be honest with you guys, I have never tried these. I’ve just never had the opportunity to try them. From what I understand you can put them in food or drinks or by placing some drops under your tongue. They work pretty much like edibles but are made differently. Tonics are usually used when you feel sick or nauseas.
Topicals are a great way to consume marijuana without any psychoactive effects. You use topical application infused with hemp by placing it directly on your skin. This will provide you comfort from muscle aches, swellings and joint pain.
Hash & Wax Bars
Hash is made by collecting the resin from flowers of a female marijuana plant. It can then be smoked, eaten or added to tea. Smoking hash is probably my top choice for consuming flowers. My favorite is to smoke hash with an eCig. It tends to hit you faster and usually a couple good hits will give you a really nice and relaxing feeling.
Blunts are one of the public’s favorite, everyone knows someone that can roll a nice fat and tight blunt. Blunts are great for solo smokers and for those that like to share with a group of friends because you can pack a lot of flower into a blunt and they burn for a long time. Some people don’t like them because of the flowers mixing with the tobacco but who cares, fat blunts are the shit.
Joints are typically smaller than blunts and are easier to roll, well at least from my point of view. I really don’t like sharing my joints as much as blunts because they burn faster. I also like the taste of a joint better but I am still a blunt man if I had to choose.
I personally love to smoke out of pipes. This is a great way to enjoy a session. Sadly, heavy smokers like me need to load them a couple of times to get where we want to be. Pipes are small and can be hidden fairly easily (most of them). Pipes are my favorite when its only me and another person smoking. Three is a crowd and you will need to keep loading it constantly.
Now this is where it’s at, best bongs are the way to get stoned period. I absolutely love smoking out of a bong. Either a homemade contraption or a 5 foot bong, I am ready for it. Smoking out of a bong for the first time will probably make you cough and tear up (happy tears or just noob tears). After the first hit you’ll realize that you’re in love and will even name your bong.
These seem to be a cross between a pipe and a bong. Very similar to pipes but there is water involved with no removable bowl. I’ve actually only seen a bubbler in action once and I wasn’t really impressed, thanks but I’ll stick to my pipe.
What can I say, one apple a day to keep the doctor away, am I right or what? Smoking out of an apple is not really convenient but it’s a nice experience. Try it at least once.
Not really a healthy choice to be smoking out of a can but who hasn’t? Sometimes you gotta do what you gatta to do. Smoking out of a can seems to be very popular for those times when nothing else is available.
This is the healthiest way of inhaling flowers. The taste and feeling is better. They are usually expensive and I honestly think I would switch to them but I am not ready to give up my other smoking methods. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy vaping.
Now you know the numerous ways to consume your flowers. I imagine a lot of you have made a homemade bong before or smoked out of some weird shit. Use our comments to submit a picture of your contraption.
