There are countless scientific findings proving the incredible medical benefits of consuming cannabis. People have used it for ages, and it has shown amazing results in treating both mental and physical issues.

But some countries still lead a war with cannabis, preventing their people from freely using what has been proven to help. However, people always find a way to get their hands on the magical plants that have life-changing abilities! Amsterdam for example, even though it has not completely legalized it, it tolerates it, and today is the home of over 200 coffee shops, such as Coffeeshop Relax, where you can drink a nice cup of coffee and relax while enjoying some of your most preferred choices of cannabis products.

Whether you use it for dealing with chronic pain, severe anxiety, muscle relaxation, cancer treatment side effects, arthritis, epilepsy, or maybe if you use it for some mental relaxation, better sleep or better concentration and creativity, you should be well informed about the safest way to use it as well as the dosage needed in order to achieve a certain effect!

Here somewhere, the question "How many ways of consumption are out there?", Simply pops up by itself!

When it comes to cannabis consumption, it's good to know that there are three basic delivery methods: inhalation, oral, and topical under which there are various techniques.

  • The first ones are the inhalation delivery methods: In these cases, the gas enters the lungs and then gets absorbed into the bloodstream.

There are mainly two types of inhalation methods, and these are smoking and vaporization. There are also various devices for these methods, such as hand pipes, water pipes, rolling papers, hookahs, and homemade one-time-use devices.

When it comes to vaping cannabis, it is helpful to know that vaporizers are used to steadily heat the herbs to a temperature high enough to extract THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids, and vaporizing minimizes the health risks associated with smoking.

  • Second, on the list of cannabis delivery methods comes the oral delivery method. In this case, the name itself means that the cannabis is consumed by mouth. These techniques include tinctures, digestible oils, and infused food / drinks.
  • Last but not least, the topical delivery method utilizes full cannabis extract. The process includes thick oil that has been decarboxylated and used to activate cannabinoids. Once activated, however, they can be absorbed through the skin.

It is important to point out that the effects of topical delivery are different from the other methods as they do not provide cerebral stimulation, which makes this consumption method the best choice for consumers who need clear head and pain relief.
