It was the best of highs, it was the worst of highs. If you’ve ever done edibles, you know what we’re talking about. It’s a tale as old as the herb itself. A group of friends decides to make and consume edibles but feel nothing after a couple of hours. So they eat more edibles and become too high. As Joe Rogan said, “You’re not going to die. You’re going to think that you’re going to die, but everybody lives.”
Smoking cannabis has become more popular than edibles due to the ease of use, immediate effects, and the ability to measure the proper dosage of cannabis. After all, nothing compares to that smooth hit from your favorite glass pipe.
However, some people prefer to consume edibles or mix their consumption up depending on the occasion. When the mood for edibles strikes, there are so many more options than classic brownies. Here are a few options for people interested in supplementing their smoking habit by occasionally consuming cannabis in a different way.
Smoking Weed vs. Consuming Edibles
Patience is a virtue, as anyone who consumes edibles is painfully aware. Edibles can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours for you to feel the effects, but do yourself a favor and don’t rush the process. Remember, when you consume edibles, the THC takes a little longer to go through your digestive tract. However, it’s very much worth the wait. A high from edibles lasts longer than the high from smoking cannabis, with an average dose lingering from six to eight hours. No wonder some people prefer to consume their cannabis rather than smoke.
That said, if you’re more interested in experiencing a “head high,” smoking is the way to go. When you smoke cannabis, the THC goes straight into your bloodstream, then your brain. And boom, you’re high. Most people feel the effects within minutes, and you can expect your high to last anywhere from three to four hours. If smoking is the right option for you, we recommend using a high-quality glass smoking pipe both for your health and a better smoking experience overall.
1. Cannabis Coffee
About 64% of Americans drink coffee every morning, so why not make your cup of joe even better by trying cannabis coffee? Cannabis and coffee go quite well together, combining two of the world’s most commonly used psychotropics: THC and caffeine. The caffeine increases your alertness, while the THC can offset some of the negative effects of caffeine consumption. Simply put, cannabis and coffee are the dynamic duo that can turn anyone into a morning person.
2. THC Gummies
Your favorite childhood snack just got an adult-friendly upgrade! Try THC gummies for a sweet treat that you can easily consume throughout the day. THC gummies are ideal for anyone in need of pain management or relief from cancer-related symptoms. Even if you’re not struggling with chronic physical pain, the psychoactive effects of THC can boost your creativity, expand your mind, or simply help you relax.
3. Grilled Cheese
Don’t you love a gooey grilled cheese with a side of tomato soup? Take your grilled cheese to the next level with a bit of cannabutter. This recipe is perfect for a cozy night or a long day after work when you don’t feel like cooking. In small doses, cannabis consumption through edibles can help you manage stress or physical pain without the distracting psychoactivity that can come from smoking.
