With the spread of legal cannabis consumption in many states, it’s more important than ever to know how to consume marijuana in a safe way.
Unfortunately, many people will do anything to get high without understanding the potential risks of the methods they choose.
Luckily, there are several safe ways to get high using cannabis, which we’ve outlined in this blog.
1. Smoking with a Bowl, Bong, or Joint
The most popular way to consume marijuana is to smoke it. You can do this using a bowl, bong, bubbler, joint papers, and many other ways, too.
This is a safe way to get high and has been done for as long as people have used cannabis.
When you smoke weed, you will start to feel high within a few seconds. This allows you to carefully monitor how high you’re getting, which is great for people who are new to smoking.
2. Taking Edibles
Edibles are food items that contain THC and they work differently than smoking weed.
When you take an edible, it’ll take time to digest so you won’t feel the effects for 45 minutes to an hour and a half. If this is your first time taking an edible, it’s important to start with a low dose so you don’t get too high.
Also, don’t take more edibles if you don’t feel the effects, sometimes it can take a couple of hours to kick in and you don’t want to end up sky-high after taking four strong edibles.
3. Taking Dabs
Dabs have become increasingly popular for people who enjoy using cannabis. Dabbing involves burning a concentrated substance like wax, shatter, or budder on a hot nail and inhaling.
Dabs are a lot more concentrated in THC, therefor they get people a lot more high a lot faster. This is great for people who are experienced smokers and have a high tolerance, but it might be too much for people who don’t have as much experience with smoking weed.
4. Gummies or Candies
Gummies or candies can be purchased from dispensaries and are safe, on-the-go options for people who need cannabis throughout the day.
Candies will have Cannabis Labels that say the amount of THC in each candy, so read them carefully before taking one.
Is Vaping Cannabis Oil Safe?
The jury is still out on whether vaping cannabis is safe. There have been recent reports of people dying in connection to high levels of vaping, but it’s not clear what exactly the cause was.
For the time being, it’s best to limit or completely avoid vaping THC oils until more studies are conducted on the potential dangers of vaping THC.
Use These Safe Ways to Get High
You can consume cannabis in a lot of different ways, but make sure you use these safe ways to get high to limit any risks. Always buy cannabis from reliable dispensaries and be sure to ask the budtenders questions about strains and potency so you know what you’re buying.
