There are many ways to use marijuana other than smoking it.
Smoking cannabis is the most common and easy way, but many people have avoided smoking due to the smell. Many places that sell Marijuana offer another option known as edible marijuana or concentrates. Edibles take longer to take effect, but it’s worth the wait!
If you’re looking to learn about odorless ways to use cannabis without being detected, read on below to find out the 6 ways you can achieve this:
- Edibles: Cannabis in food form is the second most popular way to consume Marijuana. They take longer to kick in but are more potent and reliable than smoking. The edible products take about 30 minutes to feel their effects because THC needs to be processed by digestion before it can affect receptors in your brain, so patience will get you a stronger high than you would if you smoke it.
Edibles are made with butter or oil containing marijuana, chocolate or brownies that are baked with weed. It’s important when eating edibles to start with a small portion and gradually eat more as your tolerance increases, otherwise, you can get too high too quickly.
If you’re buying from a dispensary you’ll find edible products in the same way as smoking products, i.e., in jars, plastic bags or metal containers.
- Vaporizer: A vaporizer heats up marijuana just enough so that the active ingredients (THC) are released as a vapor without burning the leaves or buds like when they’re smoked. It’s a better way of intake and many people prefer to use it.
Vaporizers allow the user to control the amount of marijuana that vaporizes at any time, and with no smoke involved, it’s a much healthier option than smoking. Although, especially with edibles, you should take in small portions as your tolerance increases and become familiar with the effects before taking more.
This method also provides many health benefits that you won’t get when you smoke marijuana, it’s a lot cleaner, and there’s almost no smell. It is also available in many different types, e.g., there are vape pens that are refillable or rechargeable, as well as portable vaporizers.
- Tinctures: Tinctures are alcohol-based preparations that contain marijuana extracts and are sometimes known as hemp oil or hemp extract. Cannabis tinctures are made by soaking cannabis flowers in alcohol or glycerin for weeks at a time until all of the active ingredients are dissolved and can be extracted.
Through this method, the extraction process makes the THC more potent and concentrated which makes it more effective for medicinal or recreational use. For this reason, tinctures tend to be stronger than edibles, but you’ll find many products on the market that are both effective and tasty.
A little bit of cannabis can go a long way, especially when you consider that it’s possible to take large amounts of medicine with little effect. Tinctures are sold in bottles, containers or syringes that can be used by dipping one end in your mouth.
- Topicals: Topical marijuana products are topical lotions, salves, and balms that deliver localized relief without any psychotropic effects. They are becoming quite popular because using them doesn’t get you high.
The topical cannabinoids penetrate the skin and are used for pain relief, inflammation and to combat a variety of skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Many people prefer this method to avoid getting high because it’s more convenient than edibles or smoking. The medicinal benefits also last longer if you use them as a topical cream.
- Sprays: Cannabis sprays are exactly what they sound like: cannabis-infused sprays that you can spray right under your tongue or in your mouth to help the cannabinoids get absorbed into the bloodstream more quickly than eating or drinking it. Sprays are the easiest way to go if you’re doing anything covert, and they have a quicker onset than edibles.
Although sprays aren’t as potent as smoking marijuana, they are still a great option for getting high in a discreet way. Many people like sprays because it’s all in your hand and can be sprayed anywhere you want.
- Capsules: These cannabis capsules are crushed up cannabis flower, brownies, or a more concentrated form of marijuana. Cannabis capsules take about two hours to take effect but they’re faster than edibles and tinctures. Capsules are usually made of gelatin or vegetable cellulose that contains alcohol. The effects last longer than smoking but the time will vary depending on how much you take and whether you have eaten anything first.
The capsules can be swallowed, chewed like a pill, or inserted sublingually under your tongue to let the active ingredients dissolve and be absorbed through your mucous membranes. They are sold as small plastic containers (about the size of your pinky finger) and contain 5 to 50 milligrams of marijuana each.
Although not as popular, capsules are a good alternative to smoking, edibles, or tinctures because they give you relief quicker than other methods.
Whether you’re smoking, ingesting into your mouth or nose, using a vaporizer, or ingesting into your body in pill form- there are many options for how to consume cannabis. Knowing how smart it is to use these different methods is a great way to avoid detection at work or school and still enjoy the benefits of marijuana!
These odorless ways to smoke marijuana are convenient, discreet, and easy to use from wherever you are. Plan ahead and order a weed vape cartridge or a refillable vapor pen so you’re always ready when the urge strikes!
