When it comes to cannabis consumption, there are many different methods to choose from. Each has advantages and disadvantages, so which is the best for you? In this blog post, we’ll explore the most common methods of cannabis consumption and their associated pros and cons. By the end, you should have a better idea of which method is most effective for you. Happy reading!
It is safe to assume that almost everyone has heard of or at least seen bongs. Bongs are one of the most iconic cannabis consumption methods and have been used for many years, dating back to 1100 BCE. However, are they effective cannabis consumption methods?
As it turns out, bongs are one of the most effective consumption methods. The primary reason is that they provide a clean hit due to the water that acts as filtration and cooling. This device is accessible everywhere, and you can find bongs for sale in almost all reputable online shops and physical dispensaries. More importantly, they also provide a stronger hit since you can pack the bowl and consume it much faster than other methods.
The next consumption method on this list is also one of the most iconic and has been around for a long time, specifically since 1850 in Mexico; at least the earliest recorded smoking. Joints are cannabis rolled in smoking paper and are often referred to as cannabis cigarettes.
Are they an effective way to consume cannabis? The answer is mainly to use them; they are very easy and cheap since you only need weed and rolling paper. However, you are using combustion to heat the cannabis, which creates harmful toxins and carcinogens. More importantly, combustion burns many cannabinoids, so they aren’t activated, and since you can’t consume as much as the bong, you aren’t getting as much THC.
Edibles are a wildly popular choice for many people, especially in 2022. Edibles are beverages or food items that have been infused with cannabis. It could be anything from cookies to cakes, lollipops, bread, pizza, and more. Edibles are very popular because they are a very effective way of consuming cannabis.
Since the edibles are being infused with THC, there is no real limit to the amount, which means that in a single gummy, you could find more THC than in 3 bowls of a bong. More importantly, edibles can last up to 8 hours, meaning you don’t have to smoke another joint or vape more weed. However, edibles won’t be the first choice for someone who only wants to feel a mild high for an hour or two.
Dry Herb Vaporizers
Next on this list is another consumption method that has increased in popularity over the last few years: dry herb vaporizers. Dry herb vaporizers are devices used to vaporize cannabis instead of using a combustion method, meaning that no smoke is created. Dry herb vaporizers are popular because they are a lot healthier than other methods of consumption.
In terms of effectiveness, dry herb vaporizers are one of the most effective ways to consume them. This is because you can select a temperature that will determine the number of cannabinoids activated, meaning you can choose how high you get. More importantly, dry herb vaporizers are very discreet and allow you to consume them on the go.
Finally, the last method of consumption on this list is the dab rig, which is slowly becoming one of the most popular ways to consume cannabis. Dab rigs take a lot of inspiration from the bong, which is apparent when you look at it since it looks very similar to a bong. Moreover, dab rigs also require water, like a bong, and have a type of bowl called a nail.
However, are dab rigs an effective way to consume cannabis? Yes, they are. They are relatively easy to use and allow the user to consume a lot of THC without needing to consume a lot of cannabis, unlike a bong. Unfortunately, they aren’t very portable unless you get an electric dab rig, which is slightly pricier.
Finally, please be sure to follow local laws when using or to consume cannabis products.
