The right type of weed product depends on a variety of factors. There are a lot of different types of weed products on the market. The options can be overwhelming. The following the different types of cannabis products.
They are cannabis-infused foods and drinks, as the name suggests they are supposed to be eaten. They can be made either from flowers or concentrates. Edibles are available in every form such as baked goods, chocolate bars, gummies, cooking oils, beverages, and mints. Most people prefer edibles because they are a better way of consuming weed without inhalation. They are a great choice for users who don’t smoke or vape.
Consuming edible doesn’t require tools all you have to do is put it in your mouth, chew and swallow. Edibles are supposed to be manufactured with precise dosage this is to prevent consuming high doses. When you buy edibles from a dispensary you know how much THC or CBD there is in a product. It becomes easier to control the amount you consume.
When you remove excess plant materials and other impurities from the cannabis plant leaving you with cannabinoids and terpenes you get concentrates. Concentrates have higher cannabis terpenes and cannabinoids than cannabis flowers because all other impurities are removed. There are a variety of ways to consume concentrates such as sprinkling kief on a bowl of cannabis flowers to increase potency.
Another way is to use a portable vaporizer and consume concentrates through vaping. The concentrates are so potent therefore less is required to feel the effect. They also have a very rapid onset, so the effect is felt quickly. You need a proper setup to safely consume concentrates like a portable vaporizer or a dab rig.
Tinctures are created by steeping cannabis in alcohol. They are commonly consumed sublingually. The body absorbs the cannabis compounds under the tongue through the blood vessels. Any compounds that are not absorbed through the blood vessels go through the the digestive tract same way as edibles.
Tinctures usually have a rapid onset as fast as 15 minutes but can also have delay effects. They have precise dosages which make it easier to control your experience. Tinctures can be mixed with food or drinks to have a more delayed effect. They are usually expensive compared to other cannabis products.
