Beginners Guide to Using Cannabis

Flower: smoking weed 101

Dried and cured marijuana, is broken down into a grounded state and can be consumed in a numerous amount of forms. One of the most popular and easy ways is with a pipe; a small amount of medical marijuana is placed into the bowl and then lit. While inhaling and exhaling smoke, THC is then passed through the body and its medical properties should activate in the next 5 to 10 minutes.

Concentrates: How to Take a Dab

A popular method of concentrate consumption is called dabbing. Small amounts of concentrate placed on a heated surface produce vapor and the hot vapor is inhaled and exhaled into the body, which activates the medical properties of the product. Concentrates can be found in many forms with wax and shatter being the most universally known.

Cannabis Edibles 101

Edibles come in many different varieties including brownies, candy, cookies, drinks, mints, and chocolate bars. Cannabis enters the bloodstream when consumed orally, only after being broken down and digested into the body. Consuming infused products is always a safer alternative to smoking medical cannabis and simply needs to be taken in the proper dosage instructed on the product.


Topicals are cannabis products made for external use, Topicals usually consist of lotions, lip balms, salves, bath salts, or essential oils. These products are infused with cannabis for medical properties to be simply applied to the body. This is very beneficial for patients who do not wish to smoke or eat medical cannabis.
