Picture this: You’ve just come home from a long day at work. You are ready to settle in for the evening. You have your dinner, your favourite chair is all set up, and you have some of your favourite cannabis strain ready to use. But it is then that you realize you don’t have a pipe or another way to smoke it. Instead of letting this ruin your evening plans, you can make your own! DIY pipes are actually quite common, and you can use many things that you likely already have lying around the house to make them. Your evening is saved as you gather up your supplies. You won’t need to make another trip out or forgo using your cannabis. Instead, you can enjoy your evening exactly as you had planned to. Though making a homemade pipe is easier than you may think it is, knowing how to get started can be a challenge. We’ll break down the different types of pipes out there and show you how you can make a pipe at home. The Types of Pipes on the Market Today There are many types of pipes, but they will all fall under one of two categories: dry pipes or wet pipes. The two offer unique experiences, and which type of cannabis pipe you prefer is up to you. You can make both kinds of pipes in your home. First, let’s look at dry pipes. These are pretty basic pipes. They are made up of a bowl and a neck. To use them, you simply pack your bowl with cannabis, cover it with a carb cap (optional), light it, and enjoy. Using this type of pipe will be similar to a joint in that you’ll be inhaling the unfiltered smoke from the weed. A water pipe is a little different. Though it too will have a bowl, this bowl will connect to a downstem. The design and the presence of water will filter out the smoke before you inhale it, creating a cleaner hit. Bongs and bubblers fall into the water pipe category. In addition to pipes being either dry or water type, there are also different types of pipes, named based on their design and the elements that make them. Let’s look at some of the most popular pipes you can buy right now, including: Hand pipes. These are the most common pipe used to smoke cannabis. They are easy to use and sit in the palm of your hand. They are made up of a bowl, which you pack your cannabis in, and a stem, which you use to inhale the smoke. The bowl will have a hole in the bottom that helps the smoke travel through the stem. There is also a larger hole on the side to allow you to regulate the airflow in the pipe (this hole is called a carb). You may also see this type of pipe referred to as a “spoon.” One-hitters. These are popular pipes for people on the go or who maybe don’t use a pipe all that often. They are typically quite small (ranging from five to ten centimetres) and are shaped like a tube with a mouthpiece on the end. There will be an opening at the other end for you to place your cannabis flow. Because of their smaller size, they cannot hold a lot of cannabis, usually only enough for users to take one hit, hence their name. Steamrollers. These pipes are an excellent combination between hand pipes and one-hitters. They are similar in shape to one-hitters but have the carb and large bowl that hand pipes offer. There is an open area at the front of this type of pipe that allows for more airflow than you’d get with a hand pipe. In addition to there being different types of pipes when it comes to function and design, pipes can also be made out of different materials (including materials you can find at home). If you are purchasing a pipe from an online retailer, you can expect to find mostly glass pipes. But other common pipe materials include wood and metal. The pipe designs can also range from small and simple to large and intricate. Many people enjoy finding pipes that are designed off of specific characters or stories. Finding the right pipe is a great way to express yourself while enjoying your cannabis. How to Use a Pipe Before we share ways you can make your own pipe at home, let’s look at how to use a pipe. The process will be similar, no matter if your pipe is store-bought or a DIY cannabis pipe. Use a cannabis grinder to break up your chosen cannabis flower. You can also use your hands, but a grinder will create more even-sized pieces. Pack your ground cannabis into the bowl of your pipe. However, you want to be sure you don’t overpack it, as this will make it harder to smoke and restrict the airflow through your piece. Place your pipe in the palm of your hand with a finger over the carb (unless you are using a one-hitter; then skip this step, as there is no carb). Put your lighter close to the surface of your bowl and make a spark (keep that finger on the carb) while inhaling. This will ignite your cannabis. Remove the lighter from your cannabis once it starts to cherry. As you inhale through the mouthpiece, cover and uncover the carb (except on one-hitters) using a tapping motion. This will keep everything burning. Exhale the smoke. Repeat until you’ve smoked all the cannabis in your pipe or until you’ve reached your desired effects. How to Make a Cannabis Pipe at Home Now that you know how to use a pipe and more about them in general, let’s look at how you can make your own at home. In this age of DIY, it only makes sense that more people are starting to use what they have on hand to smoke their favourite cannabis products. Below, we’ll show you how to make a pipe using products and objects you can find at home. But don’t be afraid to get creative and try some other methods as you grow more comfortable. 1. An Apple Pipe This option is one of the most popular ways to make a homemade pipe. To do this, you will need: An apple (any type is acceptable, but make sure there are no rotten spots) A kitchen skewer A small paring knife Aluminum foil A safety pin A cannabis grinder Cannabis of your choice Here’s how you make it: First, you’ll need to make your bowl by using a small paring knife to cut a depression out of the top of the apple. Grab your skewer and use it to make a hole from the side of the apple to the middle. Next, you will need to connect this hole to the bowl. Again using your skewer, poke a hole through the bowl to connect it to the hole in the side. Test to make sure air can flow between the two holes by blowing through your newly created hole. If any apple chunks appear at the exit hole, remove them. Line your bowl with aluminum foil, then poke small holes into the foil with a safety pin. This layer of foil protects your material from any moisture that would come from the apple. Use a cannabis grinder to grind up your weed, then place it in the bowl you created using the foil. Use a lighter to light your buds as you inhale through the hole in the side. Some people have a mouthpiece they may put in the side of the bowl, but you don’t have to use one if you don’t have one. 2. A Pen Pipe You can also use a pen to make a pipe quickly. You will want to be sure the pen you use has a metal tip, as plastic ones will melt. Here’s what you will need: A pen A lighter Tape Cannabis of your choice Here’s how you make it: Dismantle your pen and remove the ink chamber. Place the metal tip of the pen back on the pen, but put it on backwards with the tip facing into the pen. Grind your cannabis using a cannabis grinder, then fill the metal tip (which will now act as your bowl) with cannabis. If desired, you can tape the tip of the pen for additional support. Light the cannabis and inhale from the other end of the pen. This DIY pipe method is simple yet effective. As we mentioned, be sure you use a sturdy pen with metal ends, or your bowl (and the ends of your homemade pipe) will melt. 3. A Water Bottle Bong For those who prefer a wet pipe like a bong, this is a great option for you. Here’s what you will need to make it: A plastic water bottle (empty) An empty pitcher Scissors Aluminum foil A safety pin or thumbtack A cannabis grinder Cannabis of your choice Note: When choosing a bottle and a pitcher, keep in mind that the bottle will need to fit inside the pitcher. Here’s how you make it: Grab your scissors and cut the bottom of the water bottle off. You will need the bottle to sit flat in the pitcher, so try to cut a straight line across the water bottle. Rip a square of aluminum foil off your roll and use it to create a bowl at the top of your water bottle (over the area you would typically drink from). To create your bowl, gently push the foil into the drinking hole and wrap more foil around the sides. Use a safety pin or thumbtack to poke holes in the bottom of the aluminum foil bowl. Fill your pitcher with enough water to cover 2/3 of the height of the water bottle. When placed in the pitcher, the top of the water bottle should extend about 3.8 centimetres above the water level in the pitcher. Slowly place the bottle in the pitcher, with the open bottom of the bottle end going in first. Grind your cannabis, then place it in your foil bowl. Use your lighter to light your cannabis. As it burns, slowly and carefully lift your bottle up in the water. This will allow smoke to enter the bottle. Note: Do not lift the bottle high enough to remove it from the water completely. Remove the foil bowl as it comes up to the surface of the water. Use the top of the bottle to inhale the smoke. After you inhale, you can push the bottle back down into the water, which will force smoke into your mouth. As you push the bottle back down, water will begin to rise in it. Be sure you stop before it gets high enough that you end up inhaling the water. Though this process may seem a little more complicated, it is a fun way to make a bong at home once you get the hang of it. Final Thoughts There are many types of cannabis pipes on the market. From dry pipes like one-hitters to water pipes like bongs, you can find one that gives you the experience you desire. Plus, they come in many designs that allow you to express yourself while enjoying cannabis. But sometimes, you may find yourself without your pipe or with a pipe that is cracked or broken. Luckily, there are many ways you can make a cannabis pipe at home. Though we’ve shared three common methods, the possibilities are endless. You can experiment with ways to create a DIY pipe as you grow more comfortable with the methods we’ve suggested. You can also find more suggestions on DIY cannabis pipe-making online or by connecting with fellow cannabis users.
You clean your car. You clean your home. You even wash your clothes by regularly doing laundry. One thing you should clean, but likely aren’t? Your cannabis glass. Whether you use cannabis daily or just on occasion, if you use a glass device to smoke it, such as a bong, it’s essential that you take care of it, just as you would any of your other property. But, the vast majority of cannabis enthusiasts don’t clean their glass as often as they should—if they clean it at all. Think about it. When your cannabis buds arrive from your online dispensary, you likely inspect them to ensure they are high quality and don’t have mould growing. It would help if you showed this same attention to detail when it comes to your cannabis glass. So, are you cleaning your pipes regularly? If not, keep reading to learn why cleaning your glass is essential and three ways you can quickly (and painlessly) clean your glass. Types of Glass That Needs Cleaning First, remember that the instructions we provide below are specifically for cleaning glass cannabis accessories. This includes things such as: Bongs Pipes Dab rigs If you use a vape pen or even have a tray you use to roll joints, those should be cleaned regularly. However, the method you decide to use to clean them will be different from the methods we discuss below. The Importance of Cleaning Your Glass There are many reasons you should keep your glass clean in addition to just keeping it looking nice (though that is an excellent benefit of regular cleaning). Not only is it a matter of appearance, but it’s also a matter of health and efficiency. You should be sure to clean your glass regularly because: It helps keep them working well. Grime buildup can plug up certain types of glass, which makes it challenging to use and can severely impact your experience. Dirty glass can stink. This is especially true if you use a water-based glass like a bong. Stagnant water can start to stink, leaving you with a stinky bong and a smell that can eventually begin to spread throughout your home. Mould and bacteria can grow. Sitting water, even droplets from you inhaling or exhaling in a mouthpiece, can become breeding grounds for bacteria, mould, and even fungi. You’ll inevitably inhale these as you use your glass, which can irritate your lungs and is not healthy for you. The reasons to keep your glass clean are endless. It’s a part of taking care of your belongings, in this case, your cannabis glass hardware. 3 Ways to Clean Your Glass There are many ways to clean your glass. The method you choose will depend on different factors, including: How dirty your glass is What products you have on hand The type of products you are comfortable using It is important to note that the first step for every method we discuss should be taking apart your glass. This allows each piece to get a good clean. When taken apart, be careful while cleaning, so the parts don’t clank together and chip or crack. 1. The Alcohol Method Perhaps considered the simplest way to clean your glass, you will likely have everything you need to do this already on hand—no need to go out and buy additional supplies. For this cleaning method, you will need: Hot water Coarse salt (the larger the grain, the better) Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol A resealable plastic bag (like a Ziploc) Once you have your equipment, it’s time to start cleaning your cannabis glass. Run your glass pieces under warm water to remove any loose particles or debris. Place your glass in your resealable bag. Pour your rubbing alcohol into the bag. There should be enough to submerge your glass. Add one tablespoon of coarse salt to the bag. The salt will act as an abrasive and scrub your glass to remove stuck-on particles, which is why coarse salt or salt that is large is recommended. Seal your bag. Carefully shake the bag and the contents within it. If you are doing more than one piece at a time, be sure they don’t bump together and crack or break. Continue to shake the bag for about one to two minutes, allowing enough time for the salt to work. Rinse your glass with hot water to remove all alcohol and salt. Either dry your glass using a cloth or let it sit and air dry. You’ll want to be sure your glass is fully dry before you use it again. 2. The Boiling Method If you have gunk stuck on your glass, this is an excellent method to try. It can work well on its own, or you may want to try this method to loosen debris and buildup stuck on before trying either method one or three. You won’t need much to complete this method, but it does take some time and some baking equipment. You will need: Hot water A pot large enough to submerge your glass Oven mitts A timer A cotton swab Let’s get started. Gently tap your bong over a trash can to remove any loose buds or other debris. Then rinse it with warm water. (Do not use cold water as this can damage your glass when you move to the next step). Fill a pot with water and bring it to a boil. There should be enough water in your pot to fully submerge your glass and to have a few inches of water between it and the top. Carefully place your glass in the boiling water. Be sure you don’t just drop it, as that can crack or break it. Tip: Consider using tongs to place your glass in the water. Allow the glass to soak in the water for about 30 minutes, but keep an eye on it. The water will evaporate as time passes; make sure your pipe stays submerged. Remove the pot from heat and carefully drain the water. (Be sure to pour the water out away from you). Use your oven mitt to remove the glass from the pot. Rinse the pieces with warm to hot water. (Using cold water could cause your glass to crack or break). Use a cotton swab to remove any remaining residue. A pipe cleaner would also work. Let your glass air dry, or use a towel to wipe the pieces down after cleaning. 3. The Denture Method Denture tablets have a lot of uses, in addition to their intended applications. Not only can they keep dentures clean and free of bacteria, but you can also use them to clean your glass. You will need: A container large enough to hold your glass Denture tablets A timer Let’s get started: Place your glass in your container. Fill the container with hot water, and it should cover your glass entirely. Drop in two or three denture tablets. The water will start to fizz. The bubbles from the fizz will act similarly to salt in method one, Let your glass soak in the water with the denture tablets for about 30 minutes. Remove your glass and rinse all pieces with warm water. Allow your pieces to air dry, or dry them with a cloth. How Often Should I Clean My Bong? Now that you know three simple yet effective ways to clean your glass, you may be wondering how often you’ll need to do it, or rather, how often you should clean it. In a perfect world, many people say you would clean your bong or pipe after each use, immediately after you finish using it. This would prevent debris from having the chance to get stuck to it and ensures no bacteria even has the opportunity to grow and develop. But, daily cleaning may not be something everyone can commit to or has time to do. After smoking, cleaning can be the last thing on your mind and the last thing you want to focus on. In that case, experts recommend cleaning your bong or pipe at least once a week. Put aside time once a week to clean all your glass, just as you would set aside time to meal prep each week. If you use a water-based glass product, like a bong, be sure to dump out the water every time you finish using it, even if you don’t clean the entire piece. When it seems like cleaning is a big hassle, remember all the benefits regularly cleaning your glass has to offer; mainly, protecting yourself from inhaling harmful particulates, bacteria, and mould. That itself makes the extra work worth it. Don’t Want to Clean Your Glass? Other Cannabis Products to Try If cleaning your glass isn’t something you want to commit to regularly doing, you may want to consider using other cannabis products that don’t require this step instead. There are thousands of cannabis products on the market today. Long gone are the days where cannabis users can only smoke or use a bong. There are seemingly endless ways to consume cannabis products, meeting the differing needs of all cannabis users. If maintaining your glass isn’t something you are up for, consider these popular cannabis products instead: Cannabis edibles. These can include everything from chocolate and gummy candies infused with cannabis to baked goods like brownies and cookies. They are easy to make and require no clean-up after. Just be sure to allow them about 30 minutes to take effect after you eat them. THC or CBD capsules. Did you know you can take THC and CBD in capsule form? This cannabis consumption method allows users a quick and discreet way to consume cannabis on the go. It also allows users to easily manage their dose, as each pill contains a set amount of cannabis. Disposable vape pens. Also called one-hitters, these vape pens come pre-loaded, pre-charged, and ready for you to use. Once you’ve finished the product inside, dispose of them—no need to scrub or soak them to remove particles. Cannabis oil. This particular cannabis product can be taken sublingually (or applied under the tongue), but cooking with cannabis oil has become more popular lately. These oils come in different flavours or unflavoured varieties. The different choices allow people to choose which one best meets their needs and preferences. Cannabis drinks. Though some people choose to make their beverages that have been infused with cannabis products, you can also buy them. Popular cannabis drink options include coffee and even cannabis tea. There are many other cannabis products out there that require little maintenance on your part. If you are having trouble choosing the right one for you, you can ask your retailer for advice. They will be happy to help you find the perfect cannabis product for you. Final Thoughts Whether you are using a bong, dab rig, or a pipe, keeping your glass clean is an essential but often neglected part of using them. Though keeping your glass clean has many benefits, most users don’t clean their glass enough if they take the time to clean it at all. Regularly cleaning your class helps prevent mould, bacteria, and fungi from growing in your glass. If these do develop, you’ll end up inhaling them; something that is not good for your lungs or your health. Regular cleaning also keeps your glass in good working order and prevents cross-contamination of different products. You spent a lot on your glass; keep it in good working order by keeping it clean. There are many ways to clean your glass. Though we’ve discussed three here, there are others out there that utilize different products to keep your glass clean. Find the one that works best for you and make it a part of your smoking routine.
The marijuana industry continues to grow throughout Canada, the United States, and various countries overseas. Attitudes and laws toward the drug are constantly changing for the better and reports estimate that the industry will be worth $73.6 Billion by 2027. As such, it’s worth looking into some of the top marijuana stocks on the NASDAQ. Investing in marijuana companies is a good idea as many have the potential to grow exponentially as the industry becomes less restrictive. And while many stocks have been hit hard by COVID-19, this makes it a good time to buy low and sell high later. Here are some of the top marijuana stocks on the NASDAQ that you should consider adding to your portfolio. Village Farms International (NASDAQ: VFF) One of the top marijuana stocks on the NASDAQ right now is Village Farms International. Interestingly, Village Farms International started as a global producer of greenhouse-grown vegetables. However, in 2017, the company diversified its efforts and began growing cannabis, resulting in a huge surge in its stock at the time and much success since then. Although the company suffered a decline in stock during Q1 2020, this can largely be attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the stock has started to bounce back since March, and now is a great time to buy as it’s likely to grow more as things go back to normal. Village Farms International also has plenty of potential for growth. In 2019, the company vowed to produce 150,000 kg of cannabis a year using 2.2 million square feet of greenhouses dedicated specifically to cannabis growing. What’s more, the company has also been working on an expansion into the hemp industry. With the widespread popularity of CBD products, this looks like a good pick. GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH) Another marijuana stock that you should be keeping your eye on right now is GW Pharmaceuticals. GW Pharmaceuticals isn’t a cannabis cultivator or retailer, but rather a pharmaceutical company that develops plant-derived medications. Their cannabinoid-based medication, Sativex, has become extremely popular as an alternative to medical marijuana. There are many good reasons to invest in this UK-based company. Their product, Sativex, is a cannabinoid-infused oral spray that has become a popular treatment for muscle spasticity. Sativex made waves when it became the first legal cannabis-based product in the United Kingdom. Since then, it’s been approved in over 25 countries. The ability to appeal to global markets where marijuana is still illegal makes GW Pharmaceuticals stock incredibly attractive. GW Pharmaceuticals is now also working on a CBD-based product designed to treat epilepsy. Despite the trials and tribulations of 2020, GW Pharmaceuticals stock has been growing fast the past few months and looks likely to grow even further in the future. This could be a great long-term investment for any marijuana investor. Amyris Inc. (NASDAQ: AMRS) Amyris Inc. is another unique investment for marijuana investors. While not inherently a marijuana company, Amyris Inc. is a producer of products in the health and wellness, beauty, and flavor and fragrance sectors. However, the company is now working on CBD-infused products that have the potential for huge success. The CBD industry is closely related to the marijuana industry as CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. While CBD doesn’t get you high, it’s become an extremely popular alternative for users who want to benefit from the cannabinoids in marijuana without getting high. Amyris. Inc’s ability to create high-quality CBD topicals is a move that has a huge appeal for consumers. Despite the effects of COVID-19 on the economy, Amyris. Inc. had a surprisingly strong first quarter in 2020 with revenue growth of 103%. Amyris president and CEO John Melo also stated that COVID-19 would have a limited impact on the company. This looks like a strong stock that could grow substantially over the next few years, so consider it for your portfolio. Tilray (NASDAQ: TLRY) Another one of the most interesting marijuana stocks you can invest in right now is Tilray. Tilray is a pharmaceutical and cannabis company based out of Canada that has had major success worldwide. Interestingly, Tilray was the first cannabis company to have an IPO on the NASDAQ and the first medical cannabis producer to become GMP certified in the US. Tilray focuses on making some of the best cannabinoid-based products for medical purposes. As well as having major success in the United States and Canada, Tilray also has subsidiaries in various places around the world including Australia, New Zealand, Portugal, Germany, and Latin America. The company produces all kinds of medical cannabis products, including cannabis flower, oil drops, and extracts. It also produces a range of hemp-based CBD products, expanding its customer reach even further. Despite the value of Tilray stock dropping recently, the company reported revenue growth of 126% in the first quarter of 2020. Now is the perfect time to add this valuable stock to your portfolio. Cronos Group (NASDAQ: CRON) Cronos Group is a major international cannabis company with an impressive portfolio of brands. Some of its brands include Peace Naturals, COVE, Spinach, and Lord Jones. Its brands cover a wide range of products and services. Not only do they produce medical marijuana and CBD products, but they also have a global wellness platform and produce related products such as vaporizers. This stock has been one of the hottest marijuana stocks for a very long time. It’s one of the biggest marijuana stocks by market cap and even received a massive $1.8 billion investment from Altria Group- a major international producer of cigarettes and tobacco products. Since then, Cronos Group has had some major success with its stock reaching its peak in 2019. Much like with many other marijuana companies, 2020 has been rough on Cronos Group and its stock. However, with plenty of funding and resources to stay afloat, Cronos Group shouldn’t be hit too hard and can easily bounce back in the future. If you’re looking for a potentially risky long-term investment, then Cronos Group is a good pick for your portfolio. Cara Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: CARA) Marijuana-related biotech company stocks are particularly popular at the moment. Many of these companies have the potential to grow significantly, especially as they can appeal to markets where marijuana is still illegal yet cannabinoid-infused medications have the potential to be approved. Cara Therapeutics is another one of these companies making waves in the cannabis industry. Cara Therapeutics is a pharmaceutical company that focuses on developing innovative treatments for chronic pain and pruritus- the medical term for severe itching. While their main focus is on the opioid-based CR845, they’ve also been working on a new cannabis-based treatment that could see it become even more successful. While opioids come with many potential side effects, cannabinoid-based medications are much safer with no fatal risks. Cara Therapeutics is currently working on a cannabinoid-receptor agonist- CR701. While research is still in the early stages, it’s become a popular stock for marijuana investors. It may be risky to invest in Cara Therapeutics while its cannabinoid-based medication is still in the preclinical-stage, but this is still a stock that’s worth considering for marijuana investors. OrganiGram Holdings (NASDAQ: OGI) OrganiGram Holdings is a major cannabis company and by far one of the best marijuana stocks you can find on the NASDAQ. OrganiGram produces a range of cannabis strains and products for both medical and recreational users. And, while their stock value has dropped significantly over the past year, there are many reasons why this might be one of the best marijuana stock investments right now. Many marijuana companies have been hit by the COVID crisis, but there’s still the potential to bounce back as things return to normal. OrganiGram Holdings shows much promise as it focuses on cost-efficiency with some of the lowest cultivation costs in the cannabis industry. OrganiGram currently produces cannabis from a major growth facility and has received many positive reviews on its products. As well as producing a range of popular cannabis strains, OrganiGram Holdings also develops alternative products such as marijuana-infused edibles, vapes, and powders which all help the company to expand its range. Although the company hasn’t performed particularly well this year, its low stock price right now makes it a very attractive long-term investment. Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARNA) Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is another one of the top marijuana stocks on the NASDAQ, especially if you’re interested in investing in a cannabis-related biopharmaceutical company rather than cannabis retailers or growers. Arena Pharmaceuticals operates out of San Diego, California, and produces a wide range of medical products, including an upcoming cannabinoid-based drug. The company is currently working on APD371 or “Olorinab”, an agonist of cannabinoid receptors with the potential to treat Crohn’s disease. The drug is designed to help patients relieve symptoms such as gastrointestinal pain but does not make them high or produce. So far, the drug has performed well in clinical trials. While many marijuana stocks have performed poorly throughout 2019, Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. stock is at its highest point in years. What’s more, the stock has the opportunity to grow even more, especially with the huge demand for cannabinoid-based treatments even in countries where cannabis is still illegal. This is a stock that you should consider investing in sooner rather than later. Greenlane Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: GNLN) Marijuana growers, retailers, and pharmaceutical companies aren’t the only types of businesses that are important to the industry. Many cannabis users also need devices and accessories such as bongs, vaporizers, rolling papers, pipes, grinders, and more. Greenlane Holdings is one of the top marijuana companies offering these. Greenlane Holdings has a wide range of brands offering all kinds of cannabis-related products, with some of the most prominent being Marley Naturals, Vibes, and Groove. They also act as distributors for major brands like JUUL, PAX, Raw, Bic, and more. The products they produce and distribute will always be in demand for cannabis users and their strong portfolio makes them a force to be reckoned with. The company had much success last year, especially with the widespread sales of vaporizers and e-cigarettes including the popular JUUL device. Greenlane originally conducted an IPO on the NASDAQ a little over a year ago and, although the stock has dropped, it’s starting to bounce back, and now could be a good time to invest. New Age Beverages Corp. (NASDAQ: NBEV) While not inherently a marijuana stock, New Age Beverages Corp. poses another interesting opportunity for enthusiastic marijuana investors. New Age Beverages is a company that develops a range of health drinks including green tea, kombucha, and many other drinks. However, the company recently became of interest to marijuana investors when it brought out a line of CBD-infused drinks. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has become a popular alternative to cannabis for many users, especially since it’s legal in states where marijuana isn’t. Many consumers now actively seek out CBD products such as CBD Oils, Edibles, and Drinks, hence why New Age Beverages Corp is an attractive stock for marijuana investors. The company saw a surge in its stock after announcing its line of CBD drinks and, although the launch has been delayed due to regulatory uncertainties, the stock will likely experience another surge if clearance is given by the FDA. What’s more, New Age Beverages Corp. also has other lines of health drinks to fall back on- especially with the recent health concerns brought about by coronavirus. As such, this is a great stock to add to your portfolio. Conclusion If you’re interested in investing in marijuana stocks, these are some of the best stocks to look into right now. Whether you’re interested in growers, retailers, biotech companies, or ancillary businesses, there are many good options. However, keep in mind there are always risks to investing and you should do thorough research before you invest your money. Investing in marijuana companies right now is a good idea since the industry is set to grow. Marijuana is now more accepted than ever- especially in Canada where you can now buy weed in stores and online. If you’re simply interested in buying marijuana, you can find all of the products you need at WCCannabis.

Cannabis users nowadays are spoilt for choice with so many different products on the market. Those who choose to smoke weed have hundreds of strains to choose from, but those who want something stronger often turn to cannabis concentrates. While some popular examples of concentrates include Shatter, Wax, and Hash, Cannabis Oil Distillate is one of the purest and most potent kinds of concentrates you can get. All concentrates are made using extraction processes to extract the contents of the trichomes from weed. However, while most extract the cannabinoids, terpenoids, flavonoids, and other compounds from the chosen strain, cannabis distillates are ultra-refined so you’re left with pure THC. You can also get CBD Distillates if you want medical perks without getting high. Distillates can be used in all kinds of ways. You can smoke them in a joint or bowl, vape them, dab them, or even add them to other products. Many cannabis-infused products, such as Tinctures and Edibles, are made using distillates. No matter how you choose to use them, distillates will give you some of the most potent effects. So what is Cannabis Oil Distillate, how is it made, how should you use it, and what should you expect? Here’s everything you should know. What Is Cannabis Oil Distillate? Simply put, Cannabis Oil Distillate is one of the strongest and purest types of cannabis concentrates available today. Also known simply as distillates, these are hard-hitting cannabis extracts that go through a complex refinement process to strip away all extra compounds until you’re left with pure THC. Distillates come in the form of an amber oil. They’re usually sold in syringes, making it easy to dispense the amount of distillate you want to use for any given purpose. Unlike regular Cannabis Oils or Tinctures, Distillates are much purer and give you an incredibly high concentration of THC with even a small amount. While strains of weed usually contain around 15-25% THC and cannabis concentrates usually give you higher THC levels of around 60-90%, Distillates are even stronger. These products can often reach up to 99% pure THC. This is thanks to an intricate distillation process that takes away everything except pure THC. THC Distillates are ideal for users who want a powerful product that can give them strong psychoactive effects even with a tiny amount. They can also be great for giving you strong medical relief for a range of symptoms. However, THC Distillates aren’t your only option. Users who want to avoid psychoactive effects often use CBD Distillates. These are made using the same extraction process, only the process is used to extract CBD rather than THC. How Is Cannabis Oil Distillate Made? There are many types of cannabis concentrates out there and each is made using a different extraction process. For example, Hash is made by extracting the dried trichomes or kief from cannabis buds before compressing it into a solid block. Rosin is made by applying heat and pressure to cannabis until you’re left with a powerful liquid extract. While many of these extraction processes are fairly straightforward, making Cannabis Oil Distillate requires more work. First, the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids are extracted from the cannabis buds using solvents- a process used for various other cannabis extracts. However, after these are extracted, the product undergoes further refinement. A process known as winterization is used to remove fats, lipids, and other unwanted compounds. This involves using ethanol to purge unwanted compounds. Decarboxylation is then used to activate the cannabinoids in the extract. The temperature of the extract is raised, resulting in the flavonoids and terpenes being boiled away. The steam is then passed through a water-cooled tube to extract the terpenes and flavonoids. This process is then repeated with a higher temperature to extract the desired cannabinoids. These components are then combined to give you a powerful honey-like extract that’s extra high in THC. Of course, this process can also be used to extract CBD- it just requires a different temperature as these cannabinoids have different boiling points. Whichever way, the process of making Cannabis Oil Distillate is complicated and should be left to the professionals. Fortunately, it’s now easy to buy Distillates online. How To Use Cannabis Oil Distillate One of the main benefits of using Cannabis Oil Distillates is that they’re highly versatile. Whether you prefer smoking, vaping, or even want a more convenient approach, there are various ways you can use distillate and it only takes a very small amount to produce powerful effects. Here are some of the ways you can use THC or CBD Distillates. Sublingually - If you’re looking for an easy, convenient, and discreet way to use Cannabis Oil Distillate, then try taking it sublingually. All you need to do is to place a small amount under your tongue, hold it there for a minute or two, and the distillate will be swiftly absorbed into your system. You might want to allow around 20 minutes or so for the effects to kick in, but this is a highly effective way to use distillates. Vaping - Vaping is one of the most popular and best ways to use Cannabis Distillates. If you have a compatible device, you can load some of your chosen distillate into the tank of your Vaporizer before heating it to produce smooth, potent marijuana vapor. The effects will hit you instantly and you won’t need too many hits for a hard-hitting high. Adding to a Joint - If you enjoy smoking weed and want to add an extra kick, you can add some Cannabis Distillate to your joint. Simply mix some of your chosen distillate into your weed and you’ll benefit from its powerful effects. Since it’s so strong, you’ll usually only need a few puffs to get high. Adding to a Bowl - Another way to enjoy distillates is to add some to the bowl of your Bong or Pipe. You’ll need to pack the bowl with weed first- trying to burn THC or CBD Distillate by itself will result in it sticking to your bowl. However, if you add some on top of your weed, you’ll get smooth hits that are packed with plenty of THC. Dabbing - If you want the most potent effects possible from your distillates, then you’ll want to try dabbing. This involves using a Dab Rig- a device similar to a Bong that features a dab nail instead of a bowl. You heat the dab nail using a butane torch, apply a small amount of distillate to the nail, and take a hit from the mouthpiece. Dab hits are incredibly strong and even experienced users will only need one for a powerful high. Infusing into Other Products - Distillates are highly versatile so you can also infuse them into other products. For instance, you might want to apply a dose of THC Distillate into some empty capsules so you can take it in pill form. Plus, distillates are already decarboxylated, so you can easily add them to foods or drinks for powerful marijuana edibles. What To Expect From THC Distillate If you enjoy the psychoactive effects of marijuana but want them in an even stronger form, then THC Distillates are perfect for you. Even a small amount can give you a range of strong mental and physical effects whether you smoke it, vape it, or infuse it into other products such as foods, drinks, or capsules. You can expect an uplifting head high when you use THC Distillate. You’ll experience a strong sense of euphoria, heightened senses, and will likely find yourself in a happy and giggly state. Every activity will seem more fun and interesting and you might find yourself becoming more social and talkative, although it can be hard to remain mentally focused as the physical effects become stronger. THC Distillate will give you a strong body high that’s perfect for counteracting all kinds of physical tension. You’ll be soothed of any aches and strains in your body and soon find yourself in a completely relaxed state. You might find yourself feeling lazy and locked to the couch, and it can also help you get to sleep easily. Not only are these effects good for recreational purposes, but they can also be helpful for medical users. If you need something to counteract severe pain, chronic stress, depression, headaches, migraines, insomnia, or various other ailments, THC Distillate can help. Keep in mind that THC Distillate is available in various strains and each one is different. If you’re looking for a relaxing, body-focused high then indica strains are usually the best choice whereas sativa strains deliver a more uplifting, head-focused high. The kind of high you’ll get can also depend on how much you use. What To Expect From CBD Distillate While THC Distillate can be useful for users who want a hard-hitting high, users who want to avoid overwhelming psychoactive effects can use CBD Distillate instead. CBD Distillate gives you pure cannabidiol- a non-psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis that’s often used by medical users. CBD Distillate won’t give you a psychoactive high and the effects are much more subtle than THC Distillate. With that said, CBD Distillate can still be highly useful. Cannabidiol interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system and users often find that it produces a subtle calming effect. Research shows that CBD is often used for issues such as pain, inflammation, insomnia, seizures, headaches, migraines, and more. Many users take CBD daily just as you would a multivitamin or other daily supplement. Others take a single high dose to counteract certain ailments. Another advantage of using CBD Distillate is that it’s much safer than THC Distillate. While THC can have serious side effects in high doses, CBD is very safe to use. There’s no risk of overdosing on CBD and, while you may experience minor side effects, these are generally limited to fatigue, diarrhea, and changes in mood or appetite. Where To Buy Cannabis Oil Distillates If you want to try the effects for yourself, you can buy Cannabis Distillates online from WCCannabis. These products come in small syringes and you only need to apply a small amount to a joint, bowl, vaporizer, or dab rig for powerful effects. Various strains are available and each one offers something slightly different. For instance, you might want to try the intensely relaxing and sedating effects of Gorilla Glue #4 or the uplifting and energizing effects of Strawberry Cough. You can even try out a range of strains using our THC Distillate Mix and Match 5 offer, giving you five distillate cartridges for $137.50. If you want to try more, you can also use our THC Distillate Mix and Match 10 offer to get ten distillate cartridges for $250. Alternatives To Cannabis Oil Distillates While Cannabis Oil Distillates are a good option for various purposes, some users might want something different. Fortunately, there are plenty of other concentrates and cannabis-infused products worth trying. Here are some of the best alternatives. Hash - Hash is one of the most popular types of cannabis concentrates, offering strong effects that aren’t too overwhelming. It can easily be crumbled up and added to a joint, bowl, or vaporizer for a great high. Shatter - Shatter is another top-notch cannabis concentrate known for its glass-like form. You can add it to a joint or bowl, vape it, or dab it for extra-strong effects. While Shatter isn’t quite as potent as Distillate, it’s still one of the best concentrates out there. Oils - Regular Cannabis Tincture Oils are great for convenience. You can measure your desired dose with the dropper, apply the oil under your tongue, and the effects will come on swiftly. You can also add a dose to all kinds of foods or drinks. Edibles - Cannabis Edibles are marijuana-infused food products that provide powerful psychoactive effects. They take 30-90 minutes to kick in, but the effects can last for anywhere from 4-12 hours. If you use THC Edibles, make sure you start with a low dose of 10mg THC or less. Conclusion Cannabis Oil Distillate is a pure and potent type of cannabis concentrate. By undergoing a complex extraction and purification process, distillates can reach THC levels of up to 99%, giving you some of the most powerful effects. You can smoke, vape, or dab cannabis distillates or even infuse them into other products. If you want to try them for yourself, you can find a range of distillates and other cannabis products online at WCCannabis.
If you want the most powerful effects out of your Marijuana Concentrates, you’ll want to try dabbing. Dabbing is a method of consumption used for concentrates or “dabs” that involves the use of a Dab Rig. A Dab Rig is like a Bong but features a dab nail, usually made of Quartz or titanium, that can withstand high heat. While you usually heat the nail using a torch, you might want to learn how to dab without a torch. Using a butane torch is the usual method for heating your dab nail or banger. However, it can be costly to constantly refill your torch and you might want to try other methods out. Luckily, there are a few effective ways to enjoy your favorite dabs without using a torch. You might want to heat your dab nail using different approaches or simply use a different method of consumption. Here’s how to dab without a torch. 1. Use An E-Nail One of the best ways to dab without a torch is to use an e-nail. E-nails are electronic devices that are specifically designed to heat your dabs so you can take a powerful hit from your dab nail. However, instead of having to use a butane torch and wait for your banger to reach the right temperature, e-nails make the whole process smooth and easy. There are many different e-nails on the market, but they usually come with a box that you can plug into a power outlet and a metal coil that you can use to heat a Quartz, titanium, or ceramic nail. After attaching the e-nail to your Dab Rig, you can heat your dab nail extremely fast and enjoy some of the most satisfying dab hits. Not only is this one of the best alternatives to using a torch, but it’s arguably an even better approach. As well as saving you some hassle, many e-nails allow you to set your desired temperature so you can get the perfect hits. A high-quality e-nail can cost quite a lot, but it’s worth it for the quality dab hits it’ll give you. 2. Use The Stove Another way to heat your dab nail without using a torch is to simply use a stove. This works best with stoves that produce a flame and it isn’t the safest way to heat your dab nail. However, when you’re in a cinch and you have no other way to dab, this can be a helpful method. Using the stove to heat your dab nail is fairly simple. Simply hold the dab nail over the heat of the stove with some tongs until it’s hot enough to vaporize your dabs. You can then reapply it to your Dab Rig, apply your dab, and take a hit from the mouthpiece. It’s important to use tongs for this so you don’t end up burning yourself. Although this method can come in handy, it’s not recommended. Trying to heat your nail, reapply it, and apply your dab can be a hassle, especially if you’re already high. Plus, if you get too close to the stove or accidentally touch yourself with the hot dab nail, you may end up hurting yourself. 3. Use A Vaporizer Instead If you’re looking for a way to enjoy high-quality concentrates but don’t have a way to heat your dab nail, keep in mind that there are other options. For instance, one of the best ways to enjoy dabs is to use a Vaporizer. It’s safer, easier, and you can still get amazing dab hits without as much effort. Vaporizers come in many forms. While some are designed for use with Vape Oils or weed, you can also find many devices that are compatible with cannabis concentrates. Some require you to place your chosen product in a chamber before turning the device on and taking a smooth hit. You can also use Dab Pens. These are portable vaporizers that feature a nail you can heat before removing and attaching to a small dab of your chosen product. You can then reapply the dab and enjoy the hit it gives you. Using a Vaporizer is much more convenient than using a Dab Rig and the hits aren’t quite as overpowering, making it a preferred method for many users. 4. Add Dabs To Your Bowl One of the easiest ways to enjoy dabs without using a Dab Rig is to simply add your chosen product to the bowl of your Bong or Pipe. This method is incredibly easy and, while it might not be as powerful as vaping or dabbing, you can still get some sensational hits. There is a catch to using this method. Although you can add dabs to your bowl, you’ll need to mix it with weed. If you try to burn a dab of Shatter, Wax, Live Resin, or another similar concentrate without any dry herbs, it’ll melt and become stuck to your bowl without giving you a good hit. Fortunately, mixing it with weed is easy. Place some ground weed in your bowl and place your dabs on top. You won’t need to use too much- mixing the effects of dabs with the effects of weed can be strong enough already. 5. Add Dabs To A Joint Another easy method for enjoying dabs without using a Dab Rig is to add them to a joint. As long as you mix them with weed, you can end up with an extra-strong joint that’s infused with the effects of both weed and your chosen cannabis concentrates. Start rolling a joint as you usually would but, after adding your ground weed and spreading it across your rolling paper evenly, try adding some pieces of Hash or a line of Shatter. You can then finish rolling the joint as you usually would and enjoy the results. Some concentrates work better than others for this method but, whichever way, you can end up with a satisfying joint with powerful effects. If you want a simple way to test out the effects of cannabis concentrates, this is a good way to do so. Conclusion If you’re looking to enjoy the effects of dabs, using a torch isn’t your only option. If you have a Dab Rig, you can also use an E-Nail or even use the stove to heat your dab nail. You can also try out other methods such as Vaping or adding concentrates to a joint or bowl. If you want to buy high-quality concentrates for dabbing, you can find them online at WCCannabis.
If you’re looking to get high and experience the powerful psychoactive effects of THC, then you’ll most likely want to smoke marijuana, vape it, or even use potent marijuana edibles. However, when you purely want to get the physically therapeutic perks of marijuana such as pain relief without getting high, you’ll want to try a marijuana-infused topical. Marijuana topicals are among the many options consumers now have today when it comes to cannabis products. These come in the form of creams, balms, lotions, and other products that you can apply directly to your skin for localized relief. While you can simply buy marijuana topicals, you can also make them at home. Here’s how to make a marijuana-infused topical for pain relief and what to expect. DIY Recipe: Marijuana Salve for Pain Relief There are many types of topical products you can make if you’re looking for a way to apply cannabinoids directly to the skin. However, one of the easiest and most practical products you can make at home is Marijuana Salve. This process is fairly easy and can be carried out using Cannabis Oil along with some organic beeswax and cocoa butter. Here’s how to make it. Ingredients: 8 teaspoons of Cannabis Oil 2 teaspoons of Organic Beeswax 2 teaspoons of Organic Cocoa Butter Step 1: Start by placing a double-boiler over medium heat. If you don’t have a regular double-boiler, you can make one by filling a saucepan with water and placing a glass cooking bowl on top. Step 2: Once your double-boiler begins to warm up, add your cocoa butter and beeswax. Allow these ingredients to melt and stir to combine the two. You can then add your Cannabis Oil. You can experiment with different dosages but 8 teaspoons will generally work well. Mix your Cannabis Oil with the other ingredients thoroughly. Step 3: After combining your ingredients, you’ll need to transfer your marijuana-infused salve into a suitable container. It’s best to use a sealable glass container. You can use a spoon or a pipette to gently fill your container (or multiple containers) with your salve. You can then leave the containers to cool. Step 4: Once the salve has cooled, you can seal your containers and store them in a cool, dry place. They’re now ready to use. When you want to use some, simply apply a small amount to your body wherever you want to get the benefits of the cannabinoids. Can You Add CBD To Your Marijuana Topical? While most people think of THC when they think of marijuana, you can also make CBD Topicals if you prefer. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that’s known for its analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. As such, it can make for a great addition to all kinds of topical products. If you want to make CBD Salve rather than THC Salve, simply use CBD Oil when you create the recipe above. The rest of the process is the same and you can make as much CBD Salve as you want for your purposes. Alternatively, you might even want to mix both THC and CBD for a super-powered cannabis topical. There are various ways to do this. You might want to add an even dose of both THC Oil and CBD Oil. You could also add THC Oil along with a dose of CBD Isolate- a highly potent form of cannabidiol. Whether you use THC, CBD, or both, marijuana topicals will not get you high. Topicals can be applied and absorbed into the skin without reaching the bloodstream. While you can still reap the benefits of cannabinoids for your skin, you won’t experience any psychoactive effects. What To Expect From Marijuana-Infused Topicals Marijuana topicals are different from other marijuana products. While most THC-infused products are known for delivering strong psychoactive effects, marijuana topicals don’t get you high and you might not feel much at all when you use them. With that said, they can still be useful. Topicals are used for applying cannabinoids directly to the body. This is ideal for users who want to apply THC or CBD to a specific area. For instance, they might want to target a sore joint or soothe strains and aches in their back. Topicals can penetrate the skin without reaching the bloodstream, meaning they won’t reach the brain and can’t get you high. The lone exception to this is THC Patches. These can give you a slow-acting dose of THC that’s absorbed through the skin into your veins and ultimately your brain. However, most Marijuana Topicals, such as Creams, Salves, and Balms, are purely used to relieve pain, inflammation, and skin problems. Where To Buy Marijuana Topicals As easy and as fun as it is to make Marijuana Topicals at home, many users won’t want to go through the effort of buying the ingredients and cooking up a batch of Cannabis Salve. Fortunately, it’s easy enough to buy high-quality Marijuana Topicals online. You can buy Topicals online from WCCannabis. THC and CBD Topicals are available in many forms, including Balms, Bath Bombs, Lip Balms, Creams, and even Lubricant. All of these can work well for users who want to apply cannabinoids to their body via the skin. Various other cannabis products are also available. For instance, you can buy Cannabis Oils to either apply under the tongue or make other cannabis-infused products. If you’re looking to experience the psychoactive effects of marijuana, you may prefer Edibles or Concentrates instead. There’s also a wide variety of Cannabis Strains if you want to keep it simple. Conclusion Marijuana topicals are a great option for users who aren’t looking to get high but want to apply the relieving properties of THC and CBD directly to the skin. This DIY recipe will give you a soothing Marijuana Salve, and you can even customize it with different concentrations and flavorings. Of course, if you don’t want to go through the effort of making it yourself, you can always simply buy readymade topicals. You can find a range of THC and CBD Topicals along with various other cannabis products all available for countrywide delivery from WCCannabis.
Using marijuana is ideal for anyone who wants to experience the euphoric, rewarding effects of THC or even get the benefits of the various cannabinoids and terpenes cannabis contains. When most people think of using marijuana, they probably think of smoking a joint or hitting a bong, but there are various ways to consume marijuana and it’s worth trying multiple out. Some methods of marijuana consumption offer extra convenience, some make it easier to get a specific dose, and some are just plain fun. Each method has pros and cons and each makes sense for certain situations, so it helps to grab a few different products for different purposes. Here’s a guide to some of the best ways to consume marijuana and when you should use them. Smoking Although there are now tons of unique and convenient ways to consume marijuana, smoking weed is still incredibly popular. There are many ways to do it and it’s easy to customize your smoking experience based on the products you use and how you choose to smoke them. One of the good things about smoking is the variety you have. You can choose to smoke indica strains, sativa strains, or hybrid strains, and each strain offers slightly different effects. You can even mix strains to enhance the experience. You’ll need some smoking accessories such as rolling papers and a lighter if you want to roll a joint. However, you can also smoke by using a Pipe or Bong for added convenience. Smoking is an easy way to consume marijuana by yourself or with friends, although some users might not enjoy breathing in burning chemicals every time they use weed. Vaping Vaping is one of the best alternatives to smoking. Instead of burning your weed, you simply heat it to such a high point that it releases thick, flavorful, THC-packed vapor that you can then inhale to get the same effects you would from smoking. The difference is that vaping weed gives stronger effects than smoking it. What’s more, it’s less harsh on your lungs and many users find it to be a safer and more positive experience. Plus, just like with smoking, you can choose from various strains if you vape weed. Vaping weed isn’t your only option, either. If you have a Vape Pen that’s compatible with cannabis concentrates, you can vape high-potency extracts such as Shatter, Crumble, and Live Resin. Alternatively, some devices are compatible with a range of THC Vape Juices and Cartridges which provide a smooth and flavorful vaping experience. Edibles If you’re looking for something more hard-hitting and longer-lasting than smoking or vaping marijuana, you might want to try Marijuana Edibles. These are tasty snacks and treats that have been infused with the cannabinoids in cannabis. However, not only are they enjoyable to use, but they also give you a different kind of high. Consuming marijuana edibles leads to the THC being converted to a stronger chemical- 11-hydroxy-THC. Although you’ll have to wait 30-90 minutes for the effects to kick in, they’re incredibly strong and can last for anywhere from 4-12 hours. Because they’re so strong, you don’t need a high dose to get seriously high. A dose of 10mg THC is enough for most users, although experienced users may want to go a little higher. Fortunately, there are many convenient edibles such as Gummies and Chocolates that are split into small serving sizes, making it easy to get an appropriate dose. Tinctures/Oils Another one of the best ways to consume marijuana is with convenient Cannabis Tinctures and Oils. These liquid cannabis products are beneficial for numerous reasons. On top of being highly convenient to use, they also make it easy to get the dose of THC you need, and there are multiple ways to use them. The quickest and easiest way to use Cannabis Tinctures or Oils is to measure the dose you want with the dropper and drop it under your tongue. Hold the oil for at least 30-90 seconds to absorb the cannabinoids into your system before swallowing the rest. The cannabinoids will take effect on your system within around 20 minutes. Alternatively, you can drop some Tincture into a drink or even sprinkle it on top of foods. This is an easy way to make some makeshift marijuana edibles. Many people enjoy using Tinctures as they offer a convenient and discreet way to get a quick dose of THC. Capsules While many people use Tinctures for convenience, Capsules are arguably an even more convenient way to get a quick dose of cannabis. These products are simply Capsules that have been made with Cannabis Oil or Isolates, making it easy to get a fixed dose of THC whenever you need it. Capsules are split into small doses so you can get the dose you need whenever you want. For instance, if you’re looking to take 10mg of THC, all you have to do is to swallow a 10mg THC Capsule, drink some water, and wait for the effects to kick in. If you want 20mg THC, simply take two or even use 20mg THC Capsules. Various types and dosages of Cannabis Capsules are available. Although they aren’t necessarily the most enjoyable way to consume cannabis, they make it incredibly straightforward to get a specific dose, making them a good option for many people. Topicals As far as marijuana products go, Topicals are particularly interesting. These products won’t get you high, but they can still be helpful for many situations where you want to apply a dose of cannabinoids to a specific part of the body. Topicals come in many forms, such as Creams, Balms, Lotions, and Bath Products. In most cases, you simply apply Topicals directly to the area of your body where you want the effects of cannabinoids. While they don’t offer psychoactive effects, Cannabis Topicals can be useful for soothing pain and inflammation or even helping with skin problems. Because of this, they’re popular for medical cannabis users. Conclusion With so many convenient and effective ways to consume marijuana, there’s truly something to suit everyone. Whether you want the enjoyable experience of vaping, the convenience of capsules, or even the intense effects of edibles, it’s worth trying a few of these methods out. All of these products are easy to find online from WCCannabis.

Here’s a guide on cooking with cannabis along with some delicious marijuana recipes to try. What You Need To Know About Cooking With Cannabis Before you start cooking with cannabis, there are a few important details you’ll need to know. It helps to know a little about the process of how marijuana edibles are made and how they work, especially as you’ll end up with ineffective edibles if you do it wrong. You should also know what to expect when you eat marijuana edibles. Making marijuana edibles involves decarboxylating your weed before infusing it into a condiment such as butter, oil, or another fat-based ingredient. Decarboxylation is the process of heating your weed to activate the THC without burning it. Without decarboxylation, your edibles won’t give you the effects of THC. Decarboxylated weed is cooked into condiments such as oil or butter because THC binds to fats. Once you combine your weed with one of these fat-based ingredients, you can then use the resulting product in all kinds of recipes. While there are many ways to go about this, cannabis butter is generally the best option as it works well with a variety of baked goods, meals, and can even be added to drinks. The effects of marijuana edibles are significantly different from other methods of consumption. Your body takes a while to digest the THC and convert it to 11-hydroxy-THC. As such, you’ll usually have to wait around 30-90 minutes to feel the effects of edibles. When the effects kick in, you’ll experience an intense psychoactive high for anywhere from 4-12 hours. How To Decarboxylate Cannabis Decarboxylating your cannabis is an important preliminary step for making marijuana edibles. Decarboxylation involves heating cannabis without burning it to activate the THC before using it for cooking. Without decarboxylation, your edibles won’t be psychoactive, so this is a very important step. You can use any cannabis strain you like and the edibles you make will be infused with the effects of your chosen strain. Don’t worry about grinding your cannabis before decarboxylating it- it’s better to split it up into buds so you can heat and decarboxylate them evenly without burning them. Preheat your oven to 245°F and cover a baking tray with parchment paper. Spread your buds of cannabis across the baking tray evenly and place the tray in the oven for 40 minutes. This process will activate the THC in your buds without burning them. Every 10 minutes or so, you might want to shake your baking tray so the buds are heated evenly. After 40 minutes, you can take your baking tray out of the oven and leave it on the side to cool. Once your buds have cooled, you can now grind them before infusing them into cannabis condiments and using them for edibles. 1. Recipe For Cannabis Butter Before you can make marijuana edibles, you’ll need to infuse the THC from your decarboxylated cannabis into some kind of fat-based ingredient. While you can make cannabis oil, syrup, or even milk, cannabis butter is one of the most practical cannabis-infused ingredients you can make. Here’s how to make it. Ingredients: 7-10 grams of decarboxylated cannabis 1 cup of butter 1 cup of water Step 1: Melt your butter by adding it along with water to a saucepan on medium heat. It’s best to use one cup of butter and one cup of water for every 7-10 grams of weed you plan to use. Once your butter melts, stir it thoroughly into the water. Step 2: Put your saucepan on low heat (around 160ºF - 180ºF) before adding your cannabis. Grind your decarboxylated weed if you haven’t done so already and add it to your melted butter. Stir your weed into the butter and allow the mixture to simmer without boiling for 2-3 hours. Step 3: After letting it simmer for a few hours, strain the mixture into a clean glass jar or container using a cheesecloth or strainer. Once the butter has been filtered through and separated from the weed, you can seal the jar and place it in the fridge for it to harden. Step 4: Once your cannabis butter has hardened, stick a knife through the middle, and drain any excess water. Your cannabis butter is now ready to use in all kinds of delicious marijuana recipes. 2. Recipe For Cannabis Brownies One of the best cannabis recipes you can make is cannabis brownies. Not only are they quick and easy to make, but you’ll end up with some delicious chocolate brownies that are infused with the effects of marijuana. Here’s how to make cannabis brownies. Ingredients: ½ cup of cannabis butter ½ cup of flour 2 eggs ½ teaspoon of salt 1 cup of sugar 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract ½ cup of cocoa powder ¼ teaspoon of baking powder Step 1: Before you start making your cannabis brownie batter, preheat your oven to 350ºF and grease a brownie tray in preparation for later. Combine your flour, salt, cocoa powder, and baking powder in a bowl and mix well. Step 2: Melt your cannabis butter on low heat until it becomes liquefied. Take another bowl and mix your melted cannabis butter with your sugar and vanilla extract. After mixing these ingredients, add your mixed dried ingredients from step 1 and mix all ingredients thoroughly. Step 3: After blending your ingredients, add your flour and slowly whisk your eggs into the mixture one by one. You should end up with a thick, chocolatey brownie batter that’s ready for baking. Step 4: Pour your cannabis brownie batter into your baking tray and place it in the oven for 30 minutes. You’ll know when it’s ready when it starts to separate from the sides and you can poke it with a knife without the ingredients being runny. Cut the finished brownie into small squares so your dosage isn’t too strong. 3. Recipe For Cannabis Fettuccine Alfredo While baked goods and candies are usually the most popular types of marijuana edibles, you can also make whole cannabis-infused meals if you want something more filling. If you love pasta and want to infuse it with the effects of marijuana, try out this amazing cannabis fettuccine alfredo recipe. Ingredients: 1 cup of cannabis butter 3 cups of fettuccine pasta ¾ cup of grated parmesan ¾ pint of heavy cream 1 teaspoon of garlic salt Step 1: Fill a large pot with water and a pinch of salt and boil it. Once your water is boiling, add around 3 cups of fettuccine pasta and boil it for around 8-10 minutes while stirring occasionally. You’ll know your fettuccine is ready when it’s soft enough to poke with a fork. Step 2: While you’re boiling your fettuccine, place a saucepan on medium heat and melt your cannabis butter along with your heavy cream. Blend these ingredients thoroughly and add your garlic salt, along with any other seasonings you’d like to add. Step 3: Drain your fettuccine pasta and add it to your alfredo sauce. Reduce the saucepan to low heat and stir your ingredients together until the pasta is thoroughly coated with the sauce. You now have a delicious batch of cannabis-infused fettuccine alfredo that’s ready to serve. This recipe should give you around 6 servings, so don’t eat too much at once and keep the rest in the fridge. 4. Recipe For Cannabis Muffins Another one of the most delicious ways to enjoy the effects of cannabis is with cannabis muffins. These baked treats can be customized with all kinds of fillings and flavorings, but this recipe will give you tasty banana chocolate chip muffins infused with THC. Here’s how to make them. Ingredients: ¼ cup of cannabis butter ¼ cup of regular butter 1 ½ cups of flour ½ cup of sugar 2 tablespoons of brown sugar 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder ¼ teaspoon of salt 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract ¼ cup of milk 3 small bananas 1 large egg 1 cup of chocolate chips Step 1: Start by preheating your oven to 350ºF and preparing a baking tray with muffin cups. You can either use 12 muffin cups/molds or use a muffin tray. Take a small bowl and combine your flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Step 2: Take a large bowl and mash your bananas with a large spoon or masher. Melt your cannabis butter and regular butter in a saucepan on low heat and add them to the mashed bananas along with your egg and milk. Mix ingredients thoroughly until they’re fully blended. Step 3: Combine your mixed ingredients from step 1 to your larger bowl. Add your chocolate chips and stir them into the mixture. Your cannabis muffin mixture is now ready to bake. Add the mixture to your muffin cups or muffin tray to create 12 muffins. Step 4: Put your muffin tray in the oven and bake for 25 minutes. You’ll know your muffins are ready when you can insert and remove a toothpick without it being covered in cake crumbs. Place the tray on the side to cool and your delicious chocolate banana chip cannabis muffins will be ready to eat. 5. Recipe For Cannabis Cosmo While there are many ways to make delicious marijuana-infused foods, some users might prefer a refreshing cannabis beverage. Mixing cannabis and alcohol can be a great pairing, as long as you don’t overdo it with either ingredient. Here’s a recipe for a tasty and refreshing Cannabis Cosmo. Ingredients: 10mg of Cannabis Oil 1 ½ ounces of vodka ½ ounce of Triple Sec ½ ounce of lime juice 1 ounce of cranberry juice Orange peel Step 1: Take a cocktail shaker and combine your vodka, lime juice, cranberry juice, and Triple Sec. Shake thoroughly to combine these ingredients before adding your Cannabis Oil. Step 2: You can now open your shaker and add your desired dose of Cannabis Oil or Tincture. If you’re using THC Oil, it’s best to stick to a dose of around 10mg for manageable psychoactive effects. You can also use CBD Oil if you want a non-psychoactive cannabis drink. Step 3: Add some ice to the shaker and shake your ingredients thoroughly once again until they’re well blended. Step 4: Once your cocktail is well-mixed and cool, open the shaker and strain the mixture into a cocktail glass. Add an orange peel for garnish and your refreshing Cannabis Cosmo is now ready to drink. Conclusion Cooking with cannabis is a lot of fun for anyone who enjoys the effects of marijuana. Not only do these edible creations taste amazing, but they’ll also give you powerful effects that can last for many hours. Plus whether you prefer sweet treats, delicious meals, or refreshing drinks, there’s something for everyone to try. Of course, you don’t have to go through the effort of cooking a batch of cannabis butter and making edibles whenever you want to try them. You can also simply buy edibles online along with a range of other high-quality cannabis products at WCCannabis.
While many users enjoy the experience of smoking cannabis, some don’t enjoy the smell. Weed can be highly pungent and, what’s more, the smell can quickly stick to your clothing and linger for a while. Whether you’re trying to be more discreet or just aren’t a fan of the smell sticking around, it helps to know how to reduce the smell when smoking cannabis. Some of these methods will help you hide the smell of weed from your room or your house, which can be particularly helpful if you’re trying to use it on the down-low. Other approaches tackle how to stop your hair and clothing smelling like weed. There are even some methods that can help you avoid the smell altogether. Here’s a guide on how to reduce the smell when smoking cannabis. Smoke Somewhere Well-Ventilated When it comes to smoking weed indoors, it’s easy for the smell to quickly take over the entire room. Some strains are more pungent than others but, whichever way, if you’re smoking a joint or hitting a Bong inside, you can expect the smell to linger for a while. It’s best to smoke where it’s well-ventilated. Make sure you crack open a few windows to let the smell out. Although it’ll still take a while for the scent to completely dissipate, the ventilation can help get rid of the smell after. You might also find it helpful to turn a fan on- this will help get the weed smoke out of the room faster. A dehumidifier can also help- this will reduce the level of moisture in your room as well as helping get rid of strong scents quicker. Whichever way, make sure you’re smoking somewhere where it’s well-ventilated. Smoke Outdoors Instead While there are ways to reduce the smell of weed when you smoke indoors, it’s always better to smoke outdoors if you’re trying to avoid the lingering scent of cannabis. You won’t have to worry about ventilation when you smoke outside as you’re already out in the open air where smells will swiftly dissipate. There are still various restrictions on where you can and can’t smoke. Some provinces allow you to smoke in places where tobacco smoking is permitted. However, smoking in public outdoor spaces will likely be even more restricted during the quarantine. However, you can still smoke in private outdoor spaces such as your garden or balcony. Check your provincial laws and make sure you don’t break any rules. As long as you’re following the law, smoking outdoors is a great idea. You won’t have to worry about your house being overtaken by the smell of weed and, although your clothes might still end up smelling of weed, being outside in the air will help reduce this happening as well. Mask The Smell Unfortunately, you can’t completely remove the smell of weed while you’re smoking. Not only can the smell last in the air for a while when you smoke indoors, but you’re also likely to end up with the faint scent of cannabis on your hair and clothing. Fortunately, you can mask the smell. There are various approaches you can take to mask the scent of weed. If you’re worried about your room smelling of weed, try burning some incense, spraying some Febreeze, or even spraying a little perfume or cologne around your room. Although your room may still smell, at least it won’t be the smell of weed. If you’re worried about the smell of weed on your hair or clothing, you can also use perfume, cologne, or deodorant. Smoking outside or at least going outside for a walk can also help remove scents quicker. If all else fails, a quick shower and changing your clothes can help get rid of the lingering cannabis smell. Try Vaping Instead Of Smoking Smoking weed often leaves behind a strong smell as smoke can linger for a while. However, there are other options to consider. One of the best alternatives to smoking weed is Vaping or Vaporizing. Using a Vape Pen gives you a similar experience to smoking a joint but with many added benefits. One of the main benefits of Vaping is that it involves heating your weed without producing any smoke. Not only does this make it safer and healthier, but less smoke means the smell won’t be as strong after you’ve finished inhaling and exhaling. Vaping can even give you stronger hits, so it’s a win-win. Vaping weed isn’t your only option, either. Some Vape Pens are designed for use with cannabis concentrates such as Shatter, Budder, and Wax. You can also use Vape Juices. These are often infused with fruity or candy-like scents so you can avoid the lingering smell of cannabis. Use Smokeless Methods Of Consumption Along with Vaping, there are many alternative methods of marijuana consumption that don’t involve smoking. These methods don’t even involve inhaling anything, so you’ll leave behind even less smell than you would from vaping cannabis or THC Vape Oils. Edibles are a decent option if you want to avoid the smell of weed. These are food products that have been infused with cannabis, so when you eat them, you get the effects of THC. You won’t end up with the smell of weed lingering, although you might get the pleasant scent of cookies or chocolates. Cannabis Oils are a great option for convenience and ease-of-use. Simply apply your desired dose of oil under your tongue, hold it there for 30-90 seconds, and swallow the rest. This is one of the best options for users who want a smokeless method of consumption that won’t leave behind any scents. Other options are also available, such as Cannabis Topicals and even CBD Products. However, it’s important to note that these products won’t get you high and are merely used for therapeutic purposes. Conclusion There are many ways to reduce the smell when smoking cannabis. You can smoke in a well-ventilated area or even smoke outdoors to get rid of the smell quicker. You can also mask the smell with other scents. Alternatively, you can avoid the scent of weed altogether with alternative methods of consumption. Whichever way, you can find all the cannabis products you need at WCCannabis.
Marijuana is a fascinating substance that can cause a range of interesting effects when consumed. When you smoke or vape marijuana, you’ll experience a euphoric mind state and relaxing body effects thanks to a chemical known as THC. However, if you try to consume marijuana without heating it, you won’t feel any of these effects whatsoever. This is why you should know why and how to decarb your weed. Decarboxylation is a process that simply involves exposing dried Cannabis Flower to heat for enough time to activate the THC. Initially, raw cannabis is full of THCA- a non-psychoactive form of the chemical. To experience the psychoactive effects of marijuana, decarboxylation is essential and without it, you won’t feel the same kind of effects. When you smoke or vape marijuana, decarboxylation happens naturally due to the weed being heated. However, there are many situations where you might need to decarb your weed in other ways- especially if you plan to make marijuana edibles or other marijuana-infused products. Here’s a guide on why and how to decarb your weed. What Is Marijuana Decarboxylation If you want to experience the psychoactive effects of marijuana, then decarboxylation is necessary. Decarboxylation is a chemical process that involves converting the non-psychoactive THCA into the psychoactive form of the chemical- THC. For this to happen, weed must be exposed to a certain level of heat. Many users won’t ever need to worry about decarboxylation. When you smoke cannabis, the THCA is naturally converted to THC when the weed burns. Vaping cannabis gives you even more control over the temperature your weed is exposed to, allowing you to bring out more of the terpenes or cannabinoids depending on the kind of high you want. However, if you plan to make certain cannabis-infused products, you’ll need to know how to decarb your weed. For example, decarboxylation is necessary for users who want to make homemade marijuana edibles. It’s also important to decarboxylate your weed if you want to make products such as marijuana oils. The good news is that decarbing your weed is easy and you don’t need any specialist knowledge or equipment. While there are a few different ways you can decarb your weed, it generally doesn’t take anything more than an oven, a tray, and your choice of marijuana. How To Decarb Your Weed In The Oven Decarboxylating your weed in the oven is simple enough for anyone to carry out at home and only takes a few basic pieces of equipment. Before you start, make sure you have a baking tray, some parchment paper, and some of your favorite marijuana to decarboxylate. The products you make with your decarboxylated weed will be infused with the effects of the strain you use. As such, you can pick based on the kind of high you’re looking for. If you enjoy relaxing, body-focused effects, then you can choose from a wide range of indica strains. If you prefer stimulating, mind-focused effects, then sativa strains are a better choice. Hybrid strains give you a mix of both. Start by preheating your oven to 240°F. This temperature is enough to decarboxylate your weed without burning or ruining it. Cover a baking tray with parchment paper and place your buds of weed across the tray. You don’t need to grind your weed before decarboxylation, but it helps to break it into small nugs. Place the baking tray in the oven and let it sit for around 40 minutes. You might want to shake the tray every 10 minutes or so to ensure that your buds of weed are heated evenly. By the end of this process, your buds should start to turn golden brown. Take the tray out of the oven and let it sit on the side to cool. You can then store it in a glass container or use it for edibles and other marijuana-infused products. How To Decarb Your Weed In The Microwave The best way to decarboxylate your weed is in the oven, especially as you have control over the temperature and can easily activate the THC in your buds without charring them. However, if you don’t want to wait 40 minutes for your weed to decarboxylate, decarbing your weed in the microwave is also an option. Start by grinding your weed into small pieces and putting it in a microwaveable bowl. Cover the bowl and microwave it on high heat for 90 seconds. After 90 seconds, take the bowl out and smell the weed to ensure it hasn’t been charred. It’s best to repeat this process at least 3 times. By the end of it, your weed should be pungent without being burned. Checking your weed between each heating cycle is important as you need to ensure it’s been decarboxylated but hasn’t been burned. Unlike decarboxylating your weed in the oven, your weed won’t turn golden brown so this step is especially important for checking whether your weed is ready. This method can be tricky, especially as some microwaves produce more heat than others. If you’re worried about accidentally burning your weed, you might want to use a low heat and repeat the process of heating your weed and smelling it more than three times. Once your weed is ready, simply place it on the side and allow it to cool. How To Decarb Kief/Hash Alternatively, you can also decarboxylate Kief and Hash. These are cannabis concentrates that contain much higher levels of THC than weed. After decarboxylation, Kief and Hash can also be used in cannabis condiments such as marijuana butter or oil, as well as other marijuana-infused products. The process of decarbing Kief or Hash is similar to decarboxylating weed, although there are some slight differences. Preheat your oven to 245°F and put your Kief or Hash in an oven-safe glass dish. Take a large sheet of aluminum foil, fold it over to make it thicker, and cover your dish with the foil. Place your dish in the oven and allow it to heat for 30-40 minutes. This should activate the THC in your Kief or Hash. You might want to leave it for another 10 minutes or so if you want to activate more CBD. Once you’re ready, take the dish out of the oven and leave it on the side to cool with the foil still on top. Once it has cooled, you can store it or use it for marijuana butter, oil, or other products. How To Make Marijuana Butter With Decarbed Weed One of the most common uses of decarboxylated weed is making marijuana. After the THC in weed has been activated, it can be bound to fats in butter, oil, and other condiments which can then be used to make tasty marijuana edibles. Marijuana butter is great for making edibles such as brownies, cookies, cakes, and other baked goods. Here’s how to make it. Ingredients: 7-10 grams of decarboxylated weed 1 cup of butter 1 cup of water Step 1: Add a cup of water and a cup of butter to a saucepan on medium heat and wait for the butter to melt. In the meantime, grind your decarboxylated weed in preparation for adding it. Once the butter melts, stir it thoroughly and lower the heat to around 160ºF-180ºF. Step 2: Once your butter has melted, add your ground decarboxylated weed and stir it into the mixture. You can now leave it to simmer for 2-3 hours. Make sure you keep the pan at a low heat so your weed butter simmers without boiling. This will cause the THC to bind with the butter without burning your weed. Step 3: After simmering for a few hours, your potent marijuana butter will be ready. For this step, you’ll need to strain the mixture into a container to separate the liquid from any excess weed. Place a cheesecloth over a clean glass jar and strain the liquid thoroughly. Step 4: Seal your container of marijuana butter and place it in the fridge to harden. Once it has hardened, stick a knife through the middle and drain any excess water. Your marijuana butter can now be used in all kinds of delicious marijuana recipes. How To Make Cannabis Oil With Decarbed Weed You can also use your decarboxylated weed to make cannabis oil. Much like cannabis butter, cannabis oil can be used in various marijuana recipes. It’s especially useful for edibles like cannabis gummies but it can also be added to chocolate, baked goods, or even mixed into drinks. Here’s how to make it. Ingredients: 14 grams of decarboxylated weed 2-3 cups of coconut oil 1 cup of water Step 1: To start, you’ll need a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can make one simply using a large saucepan and a heatproof bowl on top. Add some water to the bottom of your double boiler and apply low heat. Put your coconut oil in the top of your double boiler. Let the oil simmer without reaching a boil. Step 2: Once the oil is simmering, lower the heat, and add your ground and decarboxylated weed to the top of your double boiler. Mix your weed thoroughly with the oil and let it simmer for 2-3 hours without boiling. Stir your weed and oil occasionally and if it begins to boil, lower the heat. Step 3: After your cannabis oil has simmered for a few hours, it’s ready to strain. Take a clean glass container and place a cheesecloth over the top. Strain your mixture through until the oil has been separated from any excess weed. You might want to squeeze the weed to strain as much oil as possible. After straining, seal your container and place it in the fridge or a cool, dry place. Using Your Marijuana Butter/Oil Once you’ve made marijuana butter or cannabis oil with your decarboxylated weed, you can use it in all kinds of ways. These cannabis condiments are often used for creating tasty marijuana edibles, but you can also use them for making other cannabis-infused products. One of the best ways to use marijuana butter is to make baked goods infused with THC. You can make all kinds of recipes such as brownies, cookies, and cakes. Just substitute some regular butter for marijuana butter. Marijuana butter can also be applied on top of meals and snacks if you want an easy way to get high. Cannabis oil can also be added to all kinds of recipes and is even more useful than marijuana butter in some cases. Cannabis oil is often used for creating cannabis gummies and hard candies. It can also be easily added to meals, especially if you mix it with liquid foods such as sauces or dressings. You can also add marijuana butter or oil to drinks if you want a refreshing cannabis-infused beverage. For instance, you could melt a small dose of marijuana butter into your tea or coffee. You can blend cannabis oil into juices, smoothies, and shakes. You can even make cannabis-infused cocktails if you’re feeling creative. Keep in mind that marijuana butter and cannabis oil can be quite potent and it’s often hard to tell how hard the effects will hit you, especially as every strain is different. It’s best to start by using a small amount to gauge how strong the effects are and how your body reacts to them. You should also consider that orally-consumed THC takes 30-90 minutes to kick in, but the effects can last for 4-12 hours. Conclusion Marijuana decarboxylation is important as, without it, you won’t get the psychoactive effects of marijuana. Heat is required to activate THC- the main psychoactive component in marijuana that gives you euphoric and physically-relaxing effects. Fortunately, decarboxylating your weed is easy and there are many ways to use decarbed weed. Decarbed weed is great for using in cannabis-infused condiments such as butter or oil. With these, you can make amazing marijuana edibles. Of course, if you want to skip the process, you can also simply buy edibles online along with various strains of weed and other marijuana products at WCCannabis.
Weed is now legally available to consumers throughout the country. However, smoking isn’t the only way to enjoy the effects. While some users stick to the good old fashioned methods of smoking a joint or hitting a Bong, there are now tons of different ways to get high without smoking weed. Although smoking is a quick and easy way to get high, some users prefer alternative options for various reasons. For instance, you might want to use a smokeless method of consumption to avoid any harsh effects on your lungs. What’s more, many of these methods offer extra ease-of-use and convenience and some will even give you a stronger high. So which should you use? Here are 5 ways to get high without smoking weed that you should consider. 1. Vaping If you want a similar experience to smoking weed but without the drawbacks, then vaping is the perfect method for you. Instead of rolling a joint, all you have to do is add some ground weed to a Vape Pen, turn the power on, and enjoy the thick, flavorful vapor that your device produces. Just like smoking, you can inhale the vapor and feel the effects instantly. The difference between vaping and smoking is that it produces enough heat to release vapor without burning your weed. As such, you won’t inhale any burning chemicals or toxins and instead get pure, smooth, THC-packed vapor. Many users feel that vaping weed is a healthier experience and studies also suggest that vaping cannabis gives you stronger effects. While some Vape Pens are designed for use with dry herbs such as weed, there are other options. Some Vaporizers are also compatible with cannabis concentrates or dabs such as Shatter, Wax, and Live Resin. You can also get pens designed for use with Cannabis Vape Oils. These are available in a wide range of delicious flavors to improve your vaping experience. 2. Edibles If you want the strongest effects possible without having to inhale anything, then marijuana edibles are one of the best options for you. These are foods that have been enhanced with the effects of marijuana- usually by infusing marijuana into butter, oil, or other condiments before using it to create potent THC-infused snacks. The effects of edibles are quite different from smoking. When you smoke weed, you’ll generally feel the effects of THC within minutes and the effects will taper off within 2-3 hours. Edibles can take 30-90 minutes to get you high as your body needs to digest the THC and convert it into the stronger 11-hydroxy-THC. Once the effects hit you, you’ll experience an intense high that can last for 4-12 hours. You can buy Edibles online and there are various kinds available. THC Gummies are a great choice of beginners, especially as they’re split into small servings of THC so they don’t get you too high. You can also try chocolates and baked goods such as cookies, cakes, and brownies. All of these provide an enjoyable way to get a potent and long-lasting high. 3. Beverages In the same vein as edibles, you can also use cannabis-infused beverages. These are drinks that are infused with the effects of THC. Much like edibles, the effects will take a while to kick in but can last for many hours. If you want a refreshing way to enjoy the effects of THC without eating anything, beverages are a great choice. Cannabis beverages can come in various forms. THC-infused tea is particularly popular, and you can even buy mixes such as MOTA Yoni Relax Tea and MOTA Iced Tea. Other hot drinks are also popular, such as cannabis-infused coffee or even Canna Cocoa. These are great for inducing relaxing effects in the evening. You can even make cannabis beverages yourself. All it takes is adding a small dose of Cannabis Oil to your juice, smoothie, or even to cocktails. THC Oil will give you powerful psychoactive effects even with a small dose, but you can also use CBD oil if you’re trying to avoid getting high. 4. Oils Cannabis Oils are one of the most convenient and practical cannabis-infused products you can buy today. These are liquid products that are packed with cannabinoids, making it easy to absorb them into your body and get the effects. You can use them anywhere at any time and you even have multiple ways to consume them. The most common method of using Cannabis Oil is to apply it underneath your tongue. You can measure your dose using the dropper and hold it under your tongue for around 30-90 seconds. The cannabinoids will swiftly be absorbed into your body and you’ll generally start to experience effects within around 20-30 minutes. Alternatively, you can also add Cannabis Oils to your food or drink. Although you shouldn’t heat it, you can easily mix it with other liquids or simply sprinkle some on top of your food. While THC Oil offers a convenient way to get high, CBD Oils are also incredibly popular for medical users. 5. Capsules Last but not least, Capsules are a great way to get the effects of marijuana when you don’t want to put any effort in. These products are incredibly simple- all you have to do is swallow a capsule, wash it down with some water, and wait for your body to digest the cannabinoids so you can experience the effects. THC Capsules each contain a small dose of THC, making it easy to get high without going overboard. If you feel like you need a higher dose, you can take more than one. However, in most cases, one is enough to get the effects you need. Other options are also available. Users looking for non-psychoactive effects can use CBD Capsules and you can even get 1:1 Capsules if you’re looking to consume both THC and CBD at the same time. Whichever way, Capsules make it quick and easy to get an effective dose of cannabinoids. Conclusion If you want to get high without smoking, you have plenty of options available. Vaping is a great alternative to smoking that gets you high just as fast whereas Edibles and Beverages will give you an even stronger and longer-lasting high. Oils and Capsules are also effective and make the whole process of getting high even more convenient. It’s worth trying out a range of cannabis products, especially as some make more sense for certain situations than others. No matter how you prefer to get high, you can find all of these products and more at WCCannabis.
