Education & Information On How To Safely Consume Cannabis

‘Marijuana’ – also called weed, herb, grass, pot, ganja, etc. – is dried flower made from the buds and leaves of the cannabis plant. It can be smoked, rolled, or infused into foods, drinks, and topicals. The main psychoactive chemical in cannabis is THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. The plant also contains other compounds called cannabinoids that produce an array of beneficial effects. Treat this section as a new user guide for legal cannabis.

There are several different types of cannabis: Sativa, Indica, and Hybrids. Each have various effects and attributes. Sativas are associated with more uplifting and focused effects, while Indicas are associated with relaxing and calming effects.

Marijuana Consumption Methods

Inhalation

By far the most popular methods of consumption are joints and blunts: flower that is ground up and rolled in a joint paper or tobacco paper. Pick up a pre-roll from us for a convenient, ready to go package, or grab some papers and roll your own.

• Peak effect: 15-30 minutes
• Duration: 2-4 hours

Oral

Edibles (cannabis-infused food and drinks) are metabolized by your liver, and therefore have a delayed but longer lasting effect. Start with only 1 to 5mg per serving and wait 30 minutes before consuming more. A common mistake is eating too much before starting to feel the effects.

 

• Peak effect: 2-4 Hours
• Duration: 5-10 hours

Topical

Topicals are applied to your skin and processed through your bloodstream. They usually yield a milder high and can provide relief to sore or tight areas.

 

• Peak effect: 2-4 Hours
• Duration: 3-6 hours

Sublingual

Sublinguals such as tinctures are administered under the tongue and held for some time before swallowing. They get absorbed into the bloodstream for faster acting relief. This method works quicker than edibles but slower than joints, blunts, or bongs.

 

• Peak effect: 30 min.
• Duration: 3-8 hours

Bong or Pipe

A popular method of consuming cannabis is to use a water pipe or piece that is made from glass, ceramics, or plastic. A bong (or bubbler) is a pipe which usually has a water chamber for smoke filtration. Learn more about bongs here: https://thehighco.co.za/bong-101-guide/

 

• Peak effect: 10-30 minutes
• Duration: 2-4 hours

Dabbing

Smoking vaporized concentrate by heating up a nail and inhaling the vapors produced is called ‘dabbing’. It is generally advised to start with a very small amount, because the effects of dabbing are stronger and more acute than the effects of smoking flower. Check out the Concentrates page to learn more.

 

• Peak effect: 1-10 min.
• Duration: 3-6 hours
