So you’ve had a hit of a joint, maybe a toke from a bong, but what about a dab or maybe some pot ice cream? There’s many methods of consuming cannabis that you may not have considered before. Now that marijuana has been legalized in two states, the commercial possibilities are open and there are more methods that ever to get high.
A dab, for the uninitiated, is a way to smoke hash (a concentrated form of marijuana) through heating a plate and then dropping the hash on top. Be warned: it can be very, very potent so make sure you only try it with an experienced “dabber”.
Vaporizers have gained popularity recently because of their health benefits vs smoking, as well as their efficiency. If used properly a vaporizer can cut the amount of marijuana you use in half compared to smoking joints or bongs. If you really want to save in the long run, an up-front investment for a more expensive unit, like a Volcano can pay dividends in the long-run.
I’m sure you’ve heard of pot brownies, but did you know you can make almost anything with weed butter? The Fader has a fantastic weed ice cream recipe that will blow your mind… Quite literally! If you’re not in the mood to make it yourself, and you happen to live in Colorado or Washington, companies like Weed World Candy are making it possible for you to drop by a pot shop and pick up some mind-altering candy.
A less common option is consuming marijuana in beverage form. Many people think that THC can’t be absorbed in to water but if binded with fat or sugar, options like tea, soda and alcohol become available and can be refreshing & delicious.
Now that you know your options don’t limit yourself to just smoking joints! The world is your oyster, go try some new methods of cannabis consumption and have an adventure.
