Tips To Use Cannabis The Right Way: Part 2

As we promised last week, here is part 2 on Tips To Use Cannabis The Right Way. Below is the continuation of the tips and some safety tips on the use of cannabis. Enjoy the post and your cannabis too.

  1. Capsules

Capsules are high in cannabinoids such as THC and are generally used for medicinal purposes only. Since they are capsules, they are meant to be used orally. You can purchase capsules online, but many people make them. In order to make cannabis capsules, you need to be a fan of DIY because it’s not a simple process. That said, capsules are a practical way to medicate if you have a chronic condition and aren’t always at home to make tea, smoke, or use cannabis in other ways. The effects of capsules onset 30 to 90 minutes after you take them and they last for six to eight hours.

  1. Juicing

A little-known way you can use cannabis is through juicing. Juicing has become very popular lately because it delivers a plethora of nutrients to one’s body and someone thought of an idea to do the same with cannabis. Benefits of fresh cannabis use include analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects, antibacterial properties, antipsychotic, antiepileptic, and antiemetic roles similar to those that one obtains from indoor marijuana seeds. In order to make a juice, you need to select fruits and vegetables (anything you want), cut cannabis plant flower directly from the pot, combine all ingredients and the juice is ready for consumption. The onset and effects are similar to those of edibles and capsules.

  1. Suppositories

Most cannabis-related products are inhaled, used orally or topically, but did you know you can use marijuana rectally? What makes cannabis suppositories so beneficial is that they deliver up to 80% of the plant’s medicinal effects. This is a staggering number compared to 35% you get orally and 15% obtained through smoking. Cannabis administered rectally has a greater bioavailability. Effects of cannabis suppositories are felt in about 10-15 minutes and they can last up to eight hours.

  1. Vaporizing

Vaporizing is a common method of using marijuana as it allows people to choose the temperature in which they want to cook their marijuana. As a result, you get to obtain the maximum from specific components of the herb while avoiding toxins. Vaporizers can vaporize either concentrated cannabis wax, oil, or dry herbs. You need to be careful when choosing vaporizers. Read reviews to get the best device to match your needs the same way you’d read marijuana seeds review to get the most potent seeds to experience desired effects. The onset of cannabis effects begins after one to three minutes with this method and it lasts for one to three hours.

  1. Patches

Yes, there are marijuana patches as well. These are evenly dosed cannabis-infused products resembling nicotine patches. They are used mainly for medical purposes; it’s not that common for people to use cannabis patches recreationally. The effects occur five to 10 minutes after you apply a patch and they last for eight to 12 hours.

  1. Cooking

With a little bit of creativity, you can use cannabis oil and seeds to cook. Before you try experimenting, it’s useful to look for recipes online so you get some experience first. Cooking with cannabis is easier than you think, but there are some rules to consider. For instance, you need to calculate a dosage based on the THC percentage or CBD in dried flower. You can use any cbd oil or butter you want. Another important thing to consider is temperature. If you want to activate terpenes then you need a temperature between 160°F and 190°F, while infusing THC requires higher temperatures like 300°F.

Safety measures to take prior to marijuana use
