Healthiest Ways to Consume Marijuana

Posted by CANNASaver on Tuesday, 19 January 2021 in Canna Blog

While marijuana isn’t necessarily unhealthy, smoking it may not be the healthiest way to consume. That’s why we’ve put together the healthiest ways to consume marijuana.

Why Search for the Healthiest Ways to Consume Marijuana?

There are many reasons to consume healthy products and to prepare them in a healthy manner.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have stated that heart disease is the leading cause of American adult deaths. According to the American Heart Association, half the American population has some form of cardiac disease.

Many approaches to healthy eating including the DASH diet recommend eating a two-thousand-calorie-a-day diet that focuses on 

  • Fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains

  • Fat-free or low-fat dairy products

  • Fish, poultry, beans, nuts, and vegetable oils

  • Limiting saturated fats including full-fat dairy products, and tropical oils such as coconut, palm kernel, and palm oils

  • Limiting fatty meats

  • Eliminating sugar-sweetened beverages and sweet snack foods

The National Cancer Institute recommends eating foods raw or lightly cooked. They caution against fried and battered foods. The institute also urges people to eat foods high in antioxidants and free radicals.

Why Choose Marijuana?

A 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health learned that one in five adolescents under 25 years old used marijuana. VeryWellMind.com outlines reasons youth and adults choose marijuana. Some use it to relieve anxiety or mood disorders.

Research has also found other therapeutic uses of cannabis. These include:

  • Alleviating nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy.

  • The reduction of chronic pain symptoms.

  • Short-term use of cannabinoids appears to improve multiple sclerosis-related spasticities.

  • The use of cannabinoids is being examined as a treatment for such conditions as epilepsy and schizophrenia.

What are the Healthiest Ways to Consume Marijuana?

If you are worried about the effects of smoking or you don’t like the lingering taste or smell of marijuana, there are healthy alternatives.

Try Vaping

Vaping or vaporizing the flower isn’t the same as smoking. You’re actually heating the cannabis, not burning it. This significantly lowers smoking-related health hazards. Vaping allows the user to cook the bud at a chosen temperature. This allows various combinations of terpenes and cannabinoids without burning your throat or lungs.

Lower temperature settings release sweeter, lighter effects. Vaping also allows the combustion of oils and waxes from the plant.

Eat Edibles

Cannabis-infused foods are an increasingly popular way to ingest marijuana. If you are new to making edibles, try these dark chocolate hemp protein balls from the Minimalistbaker.com

If you are reluctant to create your own edibles, sample the increasing number of prepared varieties. Available in regular and gluten-free edibles from our trusted sources, you will discover an ever-widening selection of sugar-free, vegan, and kosher edibles.

If you want to skip the production stage, you can buy dried flower products

Whether you’re just getting started on baking edibles or you want to expand your methods of preparing munchies, sources like Sol Cannabis provide step-by-step directions

Create Cannabutter

You can get creative in the kitchen by creating cannabutter. You’ll find there are easy ways to make your own cannabutter. Emily Kyle offers this easy cannabutter recipe using your own dried product or with pre-dried cannabis.

Many cannabis chefs swear by this method of achieving a cannabis-rich infused butter as a base for baking. Using cannabutter to make edibles opens new product opportunities like those outlined in the recipes of MyEdiblesChef.com.

Experiment with Extracts and Oils

Oils and extracts preserve the medicinal goodness of marijuana. Those with allergies usually tolerate oils. These products are the fastest and easiest ways to enjoy the healthy benefits of marijuana. They are often consumed sublingually by placing the oil under the tongue. The substance then seeps into the bloodstream. Oils may also be injected.

Serve in Beverages

Cannabis oil may be added to the beverage of choice. Alcohol as a liquid is not recommended.

Try a cannabis smoothie. Place ice, fruit, and a little cannabis oil in your blender cup. Emulsify and enjoy.

A good way to enjoy cannabis oil in your coffee is to prepare a weekly supply of cream or milk. Add cannabis oil and puree. This works equally well with almond, hazelnut, or coconut milk. You can also stir in a dollop of cannabutter.

Create a relaxing cup of cannabis tea. Steep dry buds in boiling water just as you’d prepare tea using the leaves of your favorite brand. Using a tea strainer or a tea infuser ensures your brew will be leaf-free.

Blended non-alcoholic cocktails also accommodate cannabis oil for a tasty, healthy beverage.

Add cannabis oil to the juice of your choice by adding a drop or two to your juicer.

Experiment with Topicals

These weed-infused creams, balms, lotions, or salves provide pain relief for aching joints or muscles. They also help with skin conditions.

Chronic pain sufferers have experienced improved quality of life.

Topicals allow the cannabinoids to interact with targeted areas. The topical is absorbed by the skin. 

Topicals work best when the user directs them to a specific spot rather than as full-body consumption like edibles.

Topicals are the least invasive method of cannabis use. They don’t need to be inhaled, injected, eaten, or imbibed to feel their effects.

When selecting the most effective topical, Healthline.com suggests you pay attention to

  • The company’s reputation

  • The manufacturing process

  • The topical ingredients

  • What buyers say about the product

Explore Dabs using Wax, Shatter, etc.

Dabs, crumble, shatter, wax, and budder are all highly concentrated forms of cannabis. They differ in the way they are cooked.

Many users love the transparent sheen of shatter. Budder and crumble are both wax variations.

Dabbing involves using super-potent concentrated cannabis made from hash oil. Thus, there is little waste. First, a nail made of titanium or ceramic is heated. Then, shatter, crumble, or wax is placed on the heated nail. As it vaporizes, the user inhales it through a bong or a dab device. Dabbing is more like vaping because the user inhales the vapor, not smoke.

Consider marijuana smoking with a bowl, a joint, a blunt, a spliff, a bong, or a pipe.

Experienced smokers can control the degree of inhaling, the duration of smoking, and the effects they wish to achieve. 

A joint is a traditional way to consume marijuana. It involves rolling cannabis in thin rolling paper. Bigger than a joint, a blunt contains cannabis inside a cigar wrap. Made of tobacco, the wrap adds to the high.

Like a joint, a spliff is a mix of tobacco and cannabis. A bong is more efficient. Joints blunts and spliffs keep burning between hits. With a bong, smoking material burns only during the two or three hits you take. Bongs get you higher with the same amount of weed and do so with less smoke inhalation.

Bongs are harder to clean and less portable than pipes. But, bongs filter out the bad while retaining all the benefits of cannabis. Bongs burn cooler than pipes but you can experience water burns.

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.
