Even though coming into the marijuana world as a beginner user can seem intimidating, it doesn’t have to be. Everyone decides at some point or another it is time for them to start experimenting with cannabis, whether it be for the recreational THC psychoactive effects, or for the medicinal benefits of using CBD oil.
By figuring out what you want to gain from your cannabis experience, you can determine what is the best and safest way for you to ingest this product. Suppose you want to experience only medicinal benefits. In that case, you may find that topical creams and ointments are best to relieve joint pain, ease chronic illnesses, reduce joint inflammation, and help with sore spots.
If you realize that you are beginning to ingest cannabis so you can gain the ‘high’ feeling and explore the psychoactive effects of cannabis, then using other ingestion methods can be the best option for you. With a wide array of accessories and methods, such as joints, bongs, bowls, blunts, and vaporizers, you can decide which apparatus is safest and easiest for beginners.
Before you can begin to find the best ingestion methods, keep in mind that you should start with a low potency strain. The higher potency a strain, the stronger the effects – which can be too intense for your first cannabis experience. A low potency strain contains low-to-moderate amounts of THC, the quality that provides the high feeling.
Many low potency cannabis trains also contain high concentrations of CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that provides physical benefits and relief for a variety of ailments.
Once you have chosen a low potency strain, you can decide which of these three ingestion methods are safest for you to use.
Vape carts and pens are safe, easy to use, and portable. With only a few moving parts, this apparatus is simple to set up and use for first-time cannabis consumers. The only parts needed for a vape pen to be used is the pen itself, concentrate, or vape cart. Most kits also come with a USB charger, so the pen can be charged for multiple reuses.
A vaporizer is a health-conscious way to continue smoking cannabis without having smoke in your lungs. In addition, it can be discreetly used in public spaces due to the portable and small shape of the pen.
For those who want to try and quit smoking, vaping can be a safer alternative to kicking the nicotine habit. Many studies have been published stating the health benefits of vaping when compared to smoking cigarettes, claiming vaporizers are ‘at least 95% less harmful’ than ingesting the toxic chemicals found in tobacco.
Furthermore, those who want to vape in public don’t have to worry about noxious and strong odors. You won’t have your car, house, or clothes smelling of smoke when you go out in public, ensuring you can remain discreet and low-key if vaping around other people.
Lastly, vaping using vape pens and vape carts give you complete control regarding your intended nicotine or cannabis dosage. With cartridges available in a variety of strengths and concentrate levels, you can choose whether you want a potent or low-potency product.
For those who want only a small amount and don’t enjoy taking multiple puffs of a blunt, dabbing can be a good alternative to blunts, joints, or vaporizers. Dabbing provides a clean high, delivering a high THC content without added cannabis products. If you are careful with how much you use, dabbing can provide intense, clean, and long-lasting hits that are good for new users who want to enjoy the psychoactive benefits of THC.
Pipes are among some of the most common methods for smoking weed. With either hand bowls or water bowls, this method is one of the easiest and simplest methods to ingesting cannabis. The bowl is made of ceramic and high-quality materials, while the flower is placed in the small ‘bowl’ section of the pipe. Users have to light the bowl and ingest the smoke, getting the desired effect.
You can decide how much or how little you want based on how long you inhale the smoke. For those who want to monitor their cannabis intake, this is an easy method to use with friends.
If you are a newbie to the cannabis world, everything can seem intimidating. With many methods like bongs, bowls, dab rigs, vape carts, vape pens, and joints, you may be unsure where to start. However, as a beginner, there are certain methods that are safest and easiest for you to use properly without any risks.
We recommend trying vape pens with compatible vape carts for health-conscious users who want a portable choice, whereas pipes are a safe and easy-to-use method for use with friends or family.
