Consumption Methods & Effects of Cannabis

  • Deciding a consumption method – Cannabis offers versatility. You can smoke flower, vape, enjoy an edible, place a few drops of a tincture on your tongue and try all sorts of methods. If you aren’t sure which of the many ways is right for you, don’t hesitate to ask for explanations from our well-informed staff.
  • Your goals – The type of consumption method and strain should cater to the experience you’re seeking. The recommended treatments for insomnia, chronic pain, anxiety, or relaxation are all very different. By sharing information, you can help us personalize your decisions.
  • Level of high – Dosage, consumption method, product type and cannabinoids produce unique effects. Your tolerance, metabolism, and lots of factors influence your experience and the psychoactive effects. Maybe you’re interested in the non-intoxicating properties of high CBD levels. Or would you prefer to mellow out with a higher concentration of THC?
  • Onset and longevity of effects – Smoking flower or dabbing results in the almost immediate onset of effects while edibles require the cannabinoids to be absorbed through the digestive tract, slowing everything down. However, eating cannabis delivers greater intensity and longer-lasting effects. Be aware of the attributes of strains, terpene combinations, and consumption methods, always start slow and never exceed recommended dosages.
