As we all know the most common way to use medical marijuana is by smoking it. You can roll marijuana in a paper or a blunt or you can inhale it through a pipe, bong, mango, apple and much more. Holding the smoke in your lungs doesn’t make the effect stronger. Start low, go slow and wait a an adequate amount of time between draws. While smoking medical marijuana can offer instant relief and is relatively easy to do which is why most patients will feel the effects immediately as the method is fast), smoke can be harmful to the lungs and is not a good option if you suffer from respiratory problems like asthma.
Vaping is the next common method and is more desirable than pure smoking as the detrimental effects of inhaling smoke is ruled out. Vaping marijuana is done by preheating the vaporizer, adding dried weed flower or extract, pressing the button and inhaling the vapor produced by the oil generated. Like with smoking medical cannabis, start small. Vaping removes tars, benzene and other harmful by-products, preventing them from entering the lungs.
Edibles which are a slower delivery method is to eat food or treats made with cannabis. These foods are known as edibles. Treats like candy, brownies, popcorn, butter, sodas, and other types of foods are medicated and delicious. Marijuana edibles provide long lasting relief. Also start small and slow with marijuana edibles. Remember to wait at least an hour before eating more weed edibles. This method is also great for those concerned about respiratory problems as it takes longer to feel its effect.
Tinctures or sublingual sprays containing cannabinoids mixed with alcohol, glycerin or coconut oil are applied by squirting or spraying the sublingual spray under tongue and it will be absorbed through tissues in the mouth. It doesn’t hurt the lungs and has a mild taste. Tincture is very popular and can only be obtained with a Florida medical marijuana card and doctors recommendation.
Patches that can be applied in a transdermal manner and can be attached to clean and dry skin. This method is ideal for those who can’t or don’t want to inhale smoke or vape.
Topical method is also a great way to use medical cannabis. Just rub it on the skin and away you go. If used correctly in a 1:1 ratio, it will cause no psychoactive effects. Great for those suffering from arthritic pains, muscle soreness, swelling, eczema, sunburns, joint pain or localized pain. You can find a 1:1 ratio medical marijuana product at MUVFL. They come in many different routes of administration.
A newer form of delivery is dabbing. Dabbing is a form of marijuana vaporization and is useful for urgent use, as it provides instant relief but causes extreme psychoactive effects. Dabbing is done by heating a marijuana concentrate to a high temperature and then inhaling through a dab or oil rig or vape.
