Vaping cannabis is considered a healthier alternative to smoking it. That is why vaporizers have become very popular in recent years. During smoking cannabis, the combustion takes place at high temperatures. This leads to the release of potentially harmful chemicals and smoke that can damage your lungs.
On the other hand, in vaping, cannabis is heated far more gently. This way only beneficial cannabinoids (like CBD and THC) escape and the harmful chemicals are left behind.
Dabbing is another healthier alternative to smoking cannabis. Similar to vaping, dabbing also produces vapor instead of smoke. But this method is used only to smoke cannabis concentrates.
Concentrates are extremely potent and can even contain up to 90 percent THC. This makes them a great choice for people with chronic health issues. However, you should be familiar with your tolerance level before using them. Various types of Concentrates include resin, wax, budder, and shatter.
You must be familiar with the old “pot cookies.” Well, cannabis edibles are a lot more than just these pot cookies. Edibles provide you a versatile and tasty way to enjoy your cannabis as you can even experiment with different recipes. There are a lot of options when it comes to cannabis-infused treats.
Edibles are very potent but take a little while to kick in, about 1 to 2 hours, sometimes even more. This leads to people making the mistake of consuming more than they can handle. They very quickly regret it. So, while edibles are fun, you should consume them carefully.
Another great option for you to use cannabis without smoking it is using cannabis topicals. Cannabis topicals are basically cannabis-infused creams, oils, ointments, salves, and balms. If you are looking to use cannabis for recreational purposes, cannabis topicals are not for you. Cannabis topicals are applied directly on the surface of your skin and do not cause any kind of “high” associated with cannabis.
