1) Edibles: Edibles are a popular alternative to smoking cannabis. Edibles are food products infused with cannabis extract. They can come in various forms, such as brownies, gummies, chocolates, and more. Edibles provide a longer-lasting and more intense high than smoking, but they take longer to take effect, typically 30 minutes to an hour after consumption.
2) Vaporizers: Vaporizers heat cannabis without burning it, releasing a vapor that can be inhaled. Vaporizers can come in different types, such as tabletop vaporizers or portable vaporizer pens. Vaporizing cannabis is considered to be healthier than smoking because it does not produce the same harmful byproducts that result from combustion.
3) Tinctures: Tinctures are cannabis extracts that are mixed with a liquid, typically alcohol or glycerin. They are often used sublingually, meaning they are placed under the tongue, allowing for a quick onset of effects. Tinctures can also be added to food or drinks.
4) Topicals: Topicals are cannabis-infused products that are applied directly to the skin. They can come in the form of lotions, balms, or oils. Topicals are often used for localized pain relief and can provide a relaxing sensation without producing a psychoactive effect.
5) Dabbing: Dabbing involves heating a concentrated form of cannabis, such as wax or shatter, and inhaling the vapor. Dabbing can be more potent than smoking cannabis flower and can produce a more intense high. However, dabbing requires special equipment and can be more expensive than other consumption methods.
