Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 04 December 2020 in Canna Blog - Latest News

Cannabis is not all about smoke and fire, there are ways to make your next high smoke-free. Edibles come in many different flavors, shapes, and sizes and are a great, non-discreet way of consuming cannabis. But are they cost-effective? How much are edibles compared to other marijuana products?

A Guide to THC Edibles

Edibles are a widely available solution to engage with cannabis in a vapor-less form. Taste the wide-ranging culinary creations infused with cannabis and get a sense of the flavors you enjoy in everyday foods and snacks, that pair well with cannabinoids.

Types of Edibles

There are plenty of savory snacks to choose from, like: 

  • Cookies

  • Brownies

  • Tinctures

  • Dissolvable packets

  • Gummies

  • Hard candies

  • Chocolates

  • Teas

  • Sodas, and more.

How Much THC Are In Edibles?

Colorado State Regulations mandate that (recreational) edibles come packaged in no larger than 100 milligrams of THC doses with identifiable portions. The most common measurement is 10 mg in a bite. Most products will be portioned out or have a clear dosing schedule on the label. 

The exception is for tinctures and syrups which can run up to 1000 milligrams of THC in a bottle. These infused liquids will also have a measuring syringe so you can achieve the precise dosing you desire. Most single-serve drinks such as soda pops or lemonades are dosed at 10 milligrams of THC in a bottle.

What does it all mean though? What is the best bang for your buck?

The Most Cost-Effective Type of Edibles

Tinctures and syrups are the most potent and cost-effective way to ingest THC.

By volume, strength, and price, syrup, or tincture will be the strongest type of edible you can get! These are liquids infused with THC and CBD and have the highest concentrations. The flavors are pretty good and usually resemble a sweet concoction to help this medicine go down smoothly. The activation times range from 10 minutes to 30 minutes and the doses are measured by syringe or capful. 

You can find up to 1000 mg containers from between $45 to $70 dollars. A 100 mg syrup can be found for as low as $15!

Drinks contain the least THC with about 10 mg in a bottle but are convenient and great for lighter social flights. 

Typical Prices for Other Edibles

For the pan-baked experience, there is a plethora of brownies, cookies, bars, chocolates, and stroopwafels which are doled out in 100 mg containers are the tastiest and most versatile option. These baked goods go from $6 for a bar of single-serving chocolate to an average price of $22 for a full 100 mg package of multiple cookies or chocolates. These offerings have a sufficient amount of THC in the whole package to remind you of your aunt’s space cake, but ultimately you can decide how many bites until your preferred high. 

This article starts off with the lightest infusions and saves the heaviest hitters for last.

Your taste buds will dance when a Cannabis-Infused Cola splashes over your tongue. There are many flavors to choose from such as classic, orange kush, root beer, blue razz, and purple passion. These drinks are at the higher end of the scale as far as milligrams per dollar but are great for first-timers and social buzzes. These drinks cost around $8-$10. Drinks are usually portioned at 10 mg of THC content, which is the lower end of the spectrum. You can also find bagged teas infused with cannabis. There are also strictly CBD drinks with no psychoactive effect. Those are a little cheaper. Thursdays are a good day to quench your thirst and coupons range from 10% to 25% off. You can score some coupons from cannasaver.com at these links.

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.

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.

vape healthy way to consume marijuana

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

wax healthy way to consume marijuana

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.

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. 

smoking a joint

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.

most efficient way to get 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.

bud most efficient way to get high

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.
