The sun is shining, the days are longer, and we’re finally starting to feel like the weather is a bit more on our side! It’s a great time for all things new, including new adventures, new clothes (hello summer wardrobe, even if it’s a teensy bit too early!), and a new outlook on life. Whether you’re feeling to the urge to move into this new season in small or big ways, what better place to start than with cannabis? Too often we get stuck in ruts where we just keep taking the familiar path, but what if the next time you came in your tried something out of the box? Here are a few of the most popular ways to consume cannabis. Have you tried them all?
Puff Puff Pass
Yes, for many of us, smoking is what started it all. Whether it was joints, bongs, pipes, bubblers, or a Volcano, smoking is often many people’s first plunge into cannabis. However, for those who came to cannabis later, you may have skipped that step. Maybe you went right to vaping, or maybe edibles seemed friendlier, but whatever the reason, if you’ve given smoking a pass, you might want to rethink your decision. Smoking is a great social activity and doesn’t have to be intimidating. Talk to a budtender about what kind of setup might be easiest for you, and then you can dive into a discussion about the best strain for the occasion.
A Dab Will Do Ya
If you’re on cannabis Instagram, then you’ve no doubt seen a lot of dabbing. A favorite pastime of influencers and medical patients alike, dabbing is one of the cleanest ways to consume a concentrated amount of cannabinoids. To get started you’ll need a dab rig, which is typically either glass or electric. Make sure you to double check with your budtender that you have all the right equipment. For instance, if you choose a glass rig, you’ll also need a torch to heat the glass to the proper temperature. Dabs are hard-hitting, so start small with a tiny dab of concentrate and wait to see how you feel before doing any more.
Live the Vape Life
If dabbing sounds too complicated, and you want to be able to take discreet puffs on the go (never while driving, please), vaping is a great way to consume concentrates in a simple and unobtrusive way. All you need is a battery and an oil cartridge. Ask one of our friendly budtenders for their current favorite cartridge brand. Cart strains come and go, so you might find more luck picking a brand that you like and trying what they have to offer rather than focusing on a particular strain.
Years ago, did you eat a pot brownie that you’re still trying to shake off? Never fear, edibles have come a long way since the baked goods of yore. Edibles tend to kick in slower and last longer than any other type of consumption, so if you’re looking to extend your high, edibles are the right place for you. Ask your budtender for their favorite brand. Edibles can sneak up on you quickly, so start slowly with a single 5mg serving before going back for more.
Slap Some CBD (or THC) on It
Ready to get your relaxation on? Topicals are a great way to ease into your post-workout routine. Got a sore knee or a pulled muscle? Slap a topical on it and see what happens. Topicals are typically not as intoxicating as other forms of cannabis and come in a variety of different CBD to THC ratios. Ask one of our budtenders which one you might get the most out of and discover what a topical can do for you.
