There are different forms of cannabis and different ways to consume it. Depending on your goals you might want to try different forms and methods. Let’s go over some of the most popular cannabis forms.

Most Common Cannabis Forms

Smoking cannabis is one of the most popular and accessible ways to consume cannabis

Smoking – Smoking cannabis is one of the most popular and accessible ways to consume cannabis. It is also one of the quickest ways to feel the effects of cannabis, as the smoke enters your bloodstream almost immediately. There is a wide variety of smoking methods, including rolling papers, pipes, bongs, and more.

Vaping – Vaping is an increasingly popular way to consume cannabis. It involves using a device to heat up cannabis, which then produces a vapor that can be inhaled. Vaping is one of the cleanest forms of cannabis consumption and is generally considered less harmful than smoking.

Edibles – Edibles are foods that have been infused with cannabis. They are often used as an alternative to smoking or vaping, as they provide a longer-lasting high. They are also easy to make and can be consumed discreetly.

Tinctures – Tinctures are cannabis extracts made by soaking the plant in an alcohol-based solution. The tincture can then be consumed directly or mixed into food or drinks. Tinctures allow users to feel the effects of cannabis quickly and can be easily dosed and adjusted.

Topicals – Topicals are cannabis-infused products that are applied directly to the skin. They offer localized relief from inflammation and other conditions without producing a “high” like other forms of cannabis consumption.

Capsules – Capsules are pre-filled capsules containing cannabis extract. They are convenient and easy to take, allowing users to accurately dose their cannabis consumption.

The Drawbacks of Each Form of Cannabis

The most common forms of cannabis come with their own drawbacks that can’t be ignored. Smoking is associated with a number of health risks, including the inhalation of toxic chemicals like carbon monoxide and tar, and the production of carcinogens. Ingesting cannabis, on the other hand, can cause an uncomfortable feeling in the stomach and can take longer to take effect. Vaping can also lead to lung irritation if used improperly.

It’s important to consider these drawbacks when deciding what form of cannabis is right for you. 

For those with respiratory conditions, vaping may not be the best option, while those with digestive issues may want to avoid edibles. Finding the right form for your lifestyle and needs is key to getting the most out of your cannabis experience.
