Most Efficient Way to Get High

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 28 January 2021 in Canna Blog

You’re at your favorite dispensary with all the different options in front of you when you start thinking, which of these products are the most efficient way to get you high? 

With vast amounts of flower, concentrates, edibles, and other marijuana goodies, it might be a good idea to at least consider efficiency when selecting what you take home to consume.

Most Efficient Ways to Get High

Whether it be the amount of money you have to spend, considering your overall health, or the best high involved; we are going to look at the most efficient way to get you high.

Bong

The beautiful, classic bong. How we love thee. Bongs are often beautiful and could even be pieces of art. The bong is ever so trusty when getting you high and getting you high really fast. Bongs produce THC-rich smoke which helps the efficiency of your high. 

With water pulling gross toxins from entering your body, it cools the smoke in your lungs allowing for bigger hits. Use a smaller bowl when using a bong to get maximum efficiency when smoking your weed. Cannasaver helps to find the tastiest of the buds.

concentrates most efficient way to get high

Concentrates

Concentrates such as wax, shatter, and live resin were made for a modern stoner wanting smoking efficiency. Cannabis concentrates often hit between 60-80% in THC potency and can even sometimes hit higher numbers. The higher potency maintains a stronger high. 

With an onset time of 1-3 minutes, the effects can last a few hours. Concentrates maintain the terpenes from the marijuana plant thus adding to the overall cannabinoids being absorbed and natural taste involved. It also helps that concentrates are cheaper by weight for the amount of THC contained.

However, proceed with some caution as concentrates will raise THC tolerance big time. They are not recommended for first-time users due to their strength in potency. They also require tools to use such as a rig, torch, dabber tool, etc. 

Concentrates are definitely fun for veteran smokers. Check out Cannasaver for killer deals on concentrates.

edibles most efficient way to get high

Edibles

From brownies to drinks, edibles offer a strong, unusually unique marijuana experience. 

Edibles are the longest-lasting, incredibly efficient way to indulge in cannabis. Though they have an onset time between 30-90 minutes (depending on your metabolism), these tasty treats can last anywhere from 6-8 hours. Compared to smoking/dabbing lasting between 1-3 hours.  Infused drinks are known to hit much faster between 20-30 minutes. 

It does not take much of an edible to get a desired high. The edible is digested with THC forming into a different byproduct in the liver making a chemical 2.5x stronger than regular THC. 

With this, comes a bit of caution. Start with low doses and be patient. Overeating edibles can cause a bad time, especially in those new to cannabis. If the edible doesn’t kick in within 30-90 minutes, then take more. Not before.

In the end, edibles are also a health-conscious way to get high, protecting your lungs from toxins and carcinogens found in smoke. Check out Cannasaver for deals on edibles.

grinders most efficient way to get high

Grinders

The grinder is a stoner’s very best friend. 

Throwing whole nugs or hand-broken nugs into a pipe often won’t burn very well thus being very inefficient. Instead, use a grinder! This will eliminate uneven burning on your poor ol' Mary Jane.

By grinding your cannabis, you are increasing the surface area of your stash. The increased surface area allows for more bowls gained out of your stash with the added benefit of burning your buds very evenly. Also, you will more thoroughly enjoy the terpenes in your favorite weed by breaking through to the freshness within your cannabis. Which in turn intensifies your high. 

By the end, you have an efficient cannabis tool with the added bonus of the wonderful trichomes (kief) accumulating at the bottom of your grinder, a great rainy day treat.

One-Hitters

One-hitters are discreet, powerful, and effective. One-hitters are small in size only allowing for one hit at a time before needing to reload. This helps to space out your smoking sessions. This will help maintain a low tolerance. 

Tolerance is the key to smoking weed efficiently. 

With a lower tolerance, you will be able to smoke the least amount of bud getting the most out of your high. For $10 or under, these devices are a cheap investment for minimizing your tolerance needs and providing years of savings.

vaporizers most efficient way to get high

Vaporizers

Vaporizers are known as the most efficient way to smoke marijuana. They are easy to use and extremely discreet. They are one of the healthiest ways to consume due to producing no tar byproducts. 

While vaping, keep your temperatures low, allowing for maximum efficiency. Using a trusted battery for your cartridge will add to the benefit of vaping. Vaporizers also reduce the amount of odor being emitted while maintaining flavor. Companies like PAX and GreenDot have cartridges that you would swear were actual bud hits. 

In terms of the best herb vaporizer, the volcano reigns supreme. Though initially expensive, it will help you get the most out of smoking your weed. You can even "reburn" or reuse vaped weed a couple of times, adding to its efficiency.

Switch Up Strains

You might be thinking, will switching strains be an efficient way to get you high? 

Hell yeah, it will!

Your brain gets too familiar when you're constantly smoking the same strain. You can stick to either Sativas or Indicas but play around with different strains within those categories. 

If you smoke Grand Daddy Purp all the time, try smoking Bubba Kush or Blueberry instead. And so on. Playing around with strains will keep your brain guessing in a good way.

With these options in mind, hopefully, you can find the most efficient way to get high that pertains to you. Each person is going to be different when it comes to efficiency but with these products in mind, it will be much easier for you to narrow down the perfect option for you.

Vape Pen vs Flower High

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 01 February 2021 in Canna Blog

As someone who’s worked at a dispensary, I know there are two items that newbies and connoisseurs alike typically flock towards upon entering – vape cartridges and flower.

Flower is absolutely timeless, most likely being the first way you ever indulged on marijuana goodness. However, as legalization has spread, vape cartridges have become ever more popular as time passes. 

Whether you are a first-time flyer or an experienced THC warrior, you’ve become curious as to what is the big thing about vaping and what could possibly be the difference between smoking a vape pen vs flower? 

Let’s get this bout started, the match of the new cannabis millennia, vape pen vs flower high.

Difference Between Smoking a Vape Pen vs Flower 

Though marijuana strains and flower options increase in potency every day, vaping has risen high above the clouds, providing a swifter kick of a high than regular ol’ flower. 

Vaporization works by heating THC to a temperature between 250-400 degrees Fahrenheit which creates vapor. This process optimizes your cannabinoid intake by making just enough heat to create a high concentration cannabinoid vapor. 

This contrasts with smoking flower due to flower needing to combust in order to burn THC. Smoking flower produces carcinogenic chemicals as a byproduct of combustion. This can lead to coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and other lung-related issues. 

Vape cartridges offer an alternative to combustion.

A Note About Vaping As “Healthier”

In terms of whether flower or cartridges are worse on your body, flower, unfortunately, wins for now. 

Though vaping is “healthier”, edibles are the only true way to consume marijuana without resulting in any long term bodily damage.

Even though vaping may be considered better for you, whether it be weed, tobacco, or any other smoking substance, inhaling smoke of any kind is bad for your lung health.

The Good & Ugly of Smoking Flower

We all love cannabis, which typically starts with the smoking of classic marijuana flower. 

Flower provides intense effects that occur by combustion releasing every cannabinoid from the bud in your pipe to your lungs. This produces the strong euphoric or sedative feeling we associate with getting high. 

Much cheaper than vape pens in terms of initial investment of items needed to smoke from. With papers and various cheap glass out there, smoking is really no problem. 

The bad and ugly with our precious flower comes in the method needed to activate the glorious THC: Combustion. 

Flower provides less overall control of cannabinoids with them being activated all at once instead of overtime through this process. As stated previously, combustion causes complications in our bodies we should avoid.

Vape Pens: The New Kid with Unknown Intentions

Studies have shown that vaping is the most efficient delivery of THC into the body. Dosage for dosage, flower can’t compare to vaping. 

With such high concentrations of THC, cartridges hit the bloodstream faster than flower. The concentration of THC hits with a high often described as a “cleaner” high. Not leaving you feeling as heavy as flower can. 

Vapes tend to pronounce flavors more, putting terpenes and other cannabinoids into cartridges for full marijuana effect and tastiness. 

Do note: there is a bit of a learning curve to vaping: adjusting settings, general maintenance, and learning about proper temperatures. 

If you are not inclined to learn about a new device, it may be best to stay away. With flower, you just have to load a bowl.

Let it also be known that studies on vaping and its long term effects are fairly new. Long term effects associated with vaping in any way is yet unknown. Black market/ street dealers don’t always sell up to par cartridges. These cartridges are often known as the vapes that killed people containing vitamin E. 

Just stick to legal companies – companies such as PAX or GreenDot (Labs), who are respectable and responsible brands with high-quality products.

Vaping requires no lighting of a bowl, no use of a grinder. Simply beautiful.

When it comes to smoking, everyone has their choice. It seems like when we truly look at vape pen vs flower high, vaping is the way of the future. Vaping has many things that let it shine and renovate the way cannabis evolves.

THC Syringe

Posted by CANNASaver on Wednesday, 29 September 2021 in Canna Blog

I’m sure at some point or another you’ve been in a dispensary and saw a syringe-looking device. Or maybe you haven’t and we sound like junkies over here, but trust me, this is 100% THC goodness.

So what is a THC syringe and what exactly is it used for? Let’s take a look at why you may want to try one.

What Is a THC Syringe?

THC syringes are plastic (needleless) syringes filled with full-spectrum cannabis oil. 

Cannabis oil (RSO) is made from concentrated marijuana into a paste-like substance that is taken sublingually and is incredibly strong. 

Full-spectrum refers to the vast amount of cannabinoids found in cannabis oil. The oil in the syringe is usually extremely dark/thick.

The plastic syringe is used to dispense cannabis oil and allows the ability to dispense cannabis oil to precise amounts exactly the amount you want. 

Syringes are also an easy way to keep the cannabis oil fresh while maintaining ease of dosing.

How Is Cannabis Oil Made?

Cannabis oil is a marijuana extract made utilizing a solvent to extract cannabinoids. The oil has lots of THC with a fine assortment of other cannabinoids. The most common solvent is grain alcohol.

Marijuana flower material is placed in a large container with alcohol added after. 

The mixture is stirred and crushed over and over into the alcohol until the liquid is nice and green. 

Like, Hulk green.

After a little time, alcohol is drained from the remaining plant mixture. 

That mixture will then be heated in a container and the residual alcohol will evaporate.

Why Use A THC Syringe?

Those needing cannabis oil typically need it in precise doses. 

The syringes allow for exact dose measurements marked on the syringe itself. 

This ensures that no cannabis oil is wasted during usage.

Syringes are especially useful for those with impaired motor functions (seizures, tremors, etc.). Syringes can be used to squirt medicine directly into the mouth without any oil spilling.

Syringes are typically used for oral consumption but they can also be used to measure cannabis oils used in edibles. 

The Benefits Of THC Syringes

Cannabis oil is perfect for those that require a full spectrum of cannabinoids at bigger doses throughout the day. It should be noted by patients that cannabis helps you get the full spectrum of cannabinoids that were in the plant matter used to create the oil. 

Concentrates like distillate (also found in syringes) are normally bought for their THC/THCA potency. Cannabis oil is bought for its THC containing plant matter and other cannabinoids. THC, THCA, and CBD are cannabinoids those who use syringes typically are looking for. Distillate only has THC/THCA.

How To Use A THC Syringe

THC syringes can be used in different ways to help an individual’s needs. 

When using a THC syringe be sure to read the instructions. Each dose depends on the person involved. Typically, doses should be about the size of half a grain of rice and should be administered once every eight hours (morning, noon, and night).

I hope I don’t have to say this but I probably do, don’t be a badass! 

My brother, both a major stoner and dealing with major pain from awful brain cancer, couldn’t handle feeling the potent high the oil produced. 

Start low and build to it.

The cannabis oil also has a robust and bitter taste that might not be too enjoyable for some. 

I always suggest taking it with a tasty munchie treat which is high in fats. 

Foods such as peanut butter or yogurt mask its bitter taste and increase THC absorption throughout your body. 

Other Uses For THC Syringes

No worries to those not seeking medical relief. 

THC syringes add an extra kick to your buds

Just a little cannabis oil from the syringe onto the buds can reduce the amount of flower you go through.  

This mostly applies to distillate syringes. Some creative other uses for THC syringes.

Adding Cannabis Oil To Joints 

You simply put small amounts of the distillate onto your marijuana while rolling a joint before smoking it. 

Just know that adding distillate to joints can ruin the durability and can lead to a sticky situation. 

Don’t put too much.

Distillate Syringe For Dabbing

Distillate syringes can be ideal for dabbing because you can easily dispense a drop of distillate right onto your dab tool. Some syringes come with a metal tip. This can allow you to also directly dab your syringe to a banger/nail. 

Easy dabbing.

So maybe it’s about time you give THC syringes a chance. 

There are so many benefits of THC syringes. 

They come in different sizes and can give accurate doses for those who need them.
