Do You Know How Marijuana is Consumed

Marijuana, or cannabis, is now legally permitted for recreational use in 11 states of the USA. Many more states have downgraded possession of the substance to a non-criminal offence, and only in a few states is there a hardline stance remaining for cannabis use. In fact, in some states – California for example – it is even permitted to grow up to six plants at one time in your own home. This change has been a long time coming but it is welcome, as many of us who enjoy cannabis can now do so legally.

This article talks about how marijuana is consumed, and there are four main methods: it can be inhaled, ingested, taken as a sublingual tincture or via topicals, which are applied to the skin. All have their adherents, but there is little doubt the most efficient method is to inhale the cannabis. Now, traditionally, this is done by smoking a joint, and that’s all very well except smoking tobacco products is banned in just about all public places these days. What’s the option? The herb vaporizer is your answer, but first let’s have a look at the other methods.

Why Inhalation is the Best Method for Cannabis

If you choose to take marijuana as an edible, you’ll likely do so by eating a gummy, a type of sweet that includes a dose of cannabis. This is a popular method as it is convenient. The problem is that it takes some time for the cannabis to get through the system and into the bloodstream, and it is quite a weak hit.

Taking it sublingually – under the tongue – as a tincture is a better method as it will get into the system more quickly and you’ll feel the effects. Taking it as a topical on the skin is highly recommended for skin conditions – cannabis is believed to help with some such as eczema – but is not going to give you a hit. 

So that leaves you with inhalation. There’s no denying that inhaling cannabis is the way to go, and that the dry herb vaporizer is the tool of choice, and there are many reasons why. The first is that thanks to the rapid expansion and development of the marijuana market in the USA there are many suppliers and brands to choose from, and a strong online retail sector backs this up. Therefore, it’s a buyers’ market for you, and you can shop around for the best deal. Another reason is that using a vaporizer is the most efficient method, so what are they and how to they work?

Using a Dry Herb Vaporizer

A dry herb vaporizer is one of many forms of vaping device. It will feature a compartment into which the dry herb – cannabis flower – is placed where it will be heated by a coil that is powered by a small but powerful battery. The coil heats the marijuana to the temperature at which it atomizes into vapor, which you inhale through the mouthpiece. That’s all there is to it, and it is the safest and most convenient method of ingesting cannabis. 

There is still a lot of debate about what is the healthiest way to enjoy cannabis but there are many pointers towards vaping as the way forward. You’ll find a good choice of suppliers in the form of online retailers who can offer you some excellent choices of vape products including dry herb vaporizers, and you’ll find the vaping and cannabis communities to be very helpful if you’re new to the scene!
