The cannabis plant has been incredibly useful throughout history, with various cultures recognizing and harnessing its healing and transformative properties. At Magic Mann, we’re proud to share our knowledge of cannabis and how it can benefit you in different ways.
Different Ways to Use Cannabis
There are five main methods of using cannabis: inhalation, ingestion, sublingual application, topical application, and transdermal patches. Some less common methods include suppositories, intra-nasal use, eye drops, and inhalers.
The most popular way to use cannabis is by inhaling it. You can consume the dried flower by rolling it into a joint, packing it into a bowl, or using a vaping device.
Another method is ingesting cannabis. The dried flower is processed into edibles like chocolates, cookies, or gummies. Once you chew and swallow them, the effects kick in through the digestive system.
For sublingual application, the dried flower is turned into dissolvable products such as tinctures or hard candies. By either drinking or keeping the product in your mouth, cannabinoids are absorbed through the salivary glands into the body’s endocannabinoid system.
Cannabis can also be used topically. It is processed into products like salves or lotions that can be applied directly to the skin, providing targeted relief to specific areas of the body.
Transdermal patches are a convenient way to use cannabis. These patches slowly release cannabinoids into the skin over time, offering long-lasting effects.
What dose should I start with?
At Magic Mann, we’re here to guide and educate you on choosing the best method for your needs. While THC and CBD are the most well-known cannabinoids in cannabis, there are actually 113 different cannabinoids that have been identified. Learn more about some lesser-known cannabinoids here.
We prioritize understanding the effects of cannabinoids and terpenes, rather than focusing on traditional “types” or “groupings” of cannabis. However, it’s still important for you to know what terms like Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid mean:
- Indica: Known for its relaxing effects and a body high.
- Sativa: Provides an uplifting and cerebral high, often associated with increased mental stimulation.
- Hybrid: Offers a variety of effects depending on the specific combination of cultivars.
