You can vaporize cannabis or smoke it the traditional way, ingest cannabis by taking pills or tinctures or buy eating it in food. If you're looking for the healing benefits without the high try topicals or pure CBD. 

Vaporizing

  • Gentle

    Less harsh on the throat and lungs

  • Adjust the temperature

    Set it to low for less THC or higher for more

  • One time cost

    Vaporizers can be pricey but they can last for years

Vaporizing is the Weed Mama preferred method

Vaporizing is the process of heating the cannabis to a point that releases the cannabinoids into a vapor that you inhale. This method is less harsh on your throat and lungs and allows you to adjust the temperature so you can get less THC if needed.  Visit our page on vaporizing to learn more and for a buying guide.

Smoking

  • Inexpensive

    The most accessible and cost effective way to inhale cannabis

  • Plenty of accessories

    You can use a bong, pipe or buy pre-rolls

  • Easy

    You can buy pre-rolls that are ready to go

Smoking it the old fashioned way

Smoking cannabis is one of the most accessible methods, you can even buy pre-rolled joints. You can use a variety of accessories to cool down the smoke such as bongs filled with ice water. The downside of smoking is it can be harsh on the lungs and throat and it smells strong, therefore not as discreet as other methods.

Ingest

  • Long lasting

    Good if you need your dose to last several hours

  • Healthiest method

    None of the side effects that coming with inhaling such as couging

  • Discreet

    Best method if your building doesn’t allow smoking or vaping

Eat it in food or take it in pills or tinctures

Ingesting cannabis is the healthiest and most discreet method. Edibles are not legal for sale however you can make your own and cannabis oils are legal to purchase. You can add oils to food, smoothies or liquids or put it in a capsule to swallow. Ingesting cannabis lasts much longer than inhaling it, this is a good thing if you're using it therapeutically, however it's important to be aware that it can last in your system for several hours and it can take up to 2 hours for you to feel the effects.

Weed Mama tip

Start low, with any method start with the lowest dose and adjust as needed. It's better to feel nothing at first than do too much and have a bad experience.
