Different Ways to Consume Cannabis

Smoking has been the most common way to consume cannabis throughout the years and as we mentioned in another post, there are multiple ways to do it. However, there are many other methods to consume it, and each one of them brings different experiences and highs, so no matter what are you looking for, you surely can find a method that works best for you. Let us share them with you.


Edibles were usually in the form of a sugary treat, which was intended to mask the taste of cannabis. Although this has changed in recent years, infusing cannabis with sweet treats remains popular. Edibles are known for being far more potent and psychoactive than cannabis smoked or vaped. This is due to the liver's digestion and processing of cannabis, which converts THC to the more potent 11-Hydroxy-THC.

  • Potent, lengthy effects.
  • High doses can last for 12 hours or more, sometimes even 24 hours.


Vaporization is a relatively new method of consuming cannabis. Vaporizers heat cannabis to a temperature just below combustion. Rather than inhaling smoke, the active ingredients can be inhaled as a vapor.

  • Immediate effects
  • Some claim that "vaping" gives them a better high.
  • When compared to smoking, vaporizers produce less of a cannabis odor.


Dabs are a concentrated form of cannabis made from THC and other cannabinoids extracted from plants. Dab rigs are similar to bongs, but they're made for consuming cannabis extracts. To prevent potency loss, they are typically smaller and more mechanically complex than bongs. Dab rigs also necessarily require the use of a torch to heat a metal plate.

  • Can provide a pure, high-dose, and clean product


Cannabis tinctures are alcohol or oil-based extracts that can be taken sublingually or added to a wide range of cannabis recipes. They have a slower uptake than smoking but significantly faster than edibles, as well as a longer duration of effect than smoking. Sublingual administration offers the best of both worlds in many ways.

Sublingual cannabis therapies are popular among those looking for a quick but long-lasting dose of cannabinoids because they are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. They're ideal for people who want to try consuming cannabis without the smoke.

  • Fast-acting, powerful, and easy to carry
  • Faster high than typical edibles
  • Perhaps one of the most efficient ways to consume cannabis.


Many properties of cannabis can be applied to the body through cannabis-infused topicals. It is not necessary to smoke, eat, or vaporize. A relaxing scent will make you feel like your skin is on vacation.
