Cannabis is becoming more and more mainstream considering the favourable responses to its legalization. Because of this, many people are starting to get interested in trying out this highly beneficial plant. Whether you are a veteran or a newbie, you might be looking for ways to make the experience more fun. Here are three things you can do to increase the enjoyment:
Explore Your Choices
With the recent development in the cannabis industry, it is the best time to check out new and even old options, especially if you are a beginner. From various strains to different cannabis-infused products, you are in for a treat. If you are into smoking the substance, keep in mind that some strains can give you a ‘body’ or a ‘cerebral’ high, so ask your local budtender which strain best fits what you desire.
Aside from smoking it, you can also consume other cannabis products. When it comes to cigarettes, vaping is an alternative to smoking. The same is true in consuming marijuana. You can get vaporizers that can apply the right amount of heat to your dried bud, oil or cannabis e-juice. This way, you can blend in with the vaping crowd and not worry about getting odd looks.
Your choices also include cannabis gummies which can give you a fun and delicious experience.
Experiment with Cannabinoids
The cannabis plant is rich in compounds that give it its unique and wonderful characteristics. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a highly medical cannabinoid used to treat various debilitating conditions, while tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is psychoactive, yet still medically beneficial. If you are looking for a ‘cerebral’ high, go for a product with high CBD. For a ‘body’ high that gives you a sedative effect, find one with high THC levels.
It is beneficial to know that taking CBD and THC together is not a bad thing. In fact, scientists found that consuming a product with a 1:1 CBD and THC ratio can enhance the effect of both cannabinoids.
Mix with Your Food
If you are a gastronome and a cannabis enthusiast, you can combine these two for a more delightful experience. A notable thing about this plant is you can infuse it in a wide variety of recipes. From savoury food to baked goods, you are sure to find one that can satisfy your palate. Incorporating this herb is easy if you take the time to follow proper bud preparation techniques.
Some Tips and Reminders
If you are set to enjoy your cannabis product, make sure to keep these in mind:
- Take it Easy – You do not want to overconsume, especially on your first few intakes. In terms of quantity, try to assess how the product is affecting you. Is it giving you the effect you desire with a small amount? If so, then make that your benchmark and gradually increase your dosage over time.
- Decarboxylate Your Bud – For the chefs out there, properly decarboxylate your buds before mixing it into your recipe. This process helps activate the cannabinoids making their effects more potent. You can easily do this by baking your buds at 220F or 105C heat.
Nothing beats making the most out of any experience. With these helpful tips, you can certainly make your cannabis intake more fun while maximising the benefits the plant has to offer.
