While the classic flower in a bowl or joint is a great way to consume cannabis, as marijuana becomes more and more popular, people are looking for easier ways to produce and consume marijuana. Each method has its own benefits, and it’s important to find the consumption method that fits your needs. That’s why in today’s blog post from Sticky Thumb, our San Francisco marijuana delivery company is sharing a few of the ways to consume marijuana. We offer a wide range of products, from flower to edibles, cartridges, and more. Continue reading to learn more, and if you’re ready to order weed delivery, browse our menu. 

Oral Delivery

Oral delivery of marijuana includes all types of cannabis that are consumed by the mouth. While most oral delivery methods move through the digestive tract before being absorbed into the bloodstream, that’s not always the case. For example, tinctures are taken through the mouth but are more like topicals in that they are absorbed in the bloodstream through the tongue. 

Tinctures

Tinctures are liquid cannabis and are a great option for people looking to control their cannabis dosage while also achieving fast-acting effects. It’s also a great choice for those who want to avoid the health risks associated with smoking. Most cannabis tinctures use alcohol as the solvent, but other fat-soluble liquids, such as vinegar or glycerol, can also be used. Tinctures are ingested by placing a few drops under the tongue, where it’s absorbed directly into the body rather than being digested.

Edibles

Eating or drinking marijuana has a much different effect than inhalation methods. Edibles are a very broad category of cannabis delivery and are essentially any food or drink that contains cannabis. Edibles take longer to affect you, as they must be processed through your digestive system first, and they tend to cause powerful, full-body highs. Marijuana-infused food and drinks can be made in a wide variety of ways, but they’re made from a primary ingredient of infused fat, like butter or olive oil. High-fat ingredients enable the extraction of cannabinoids, and as marijuana becomes more and more popular, so does the variety of edible products.

Capsules

Marijuana can also be ingested in pill form, and capsules can range from a single cannabinoid to full-spectrum or even strain-specific oil. There is a myriad of marijuana capsule options, and they are an easy and convenient method of ingesting marijuana. They also offer exact dosing information. They work the same way as edibles and are a great choice for those who want the effects of cannabis without the health risks associated with smoking. Capsules can include different ingredients, from ground decarboxylated flower to crystalline, distillate, and more. If you have any questions about cannabis capsules, contact our San Francisco weed delivery company.

Inhalation Delivery

When cannabis is inhaled, the gases first enter the lungs and then are absorbed into the bloodstream. The two main types of inhalation delivery are smoking and vaporization. Cannabis users have a wide range of devices and methods at their disposal, and each provides a different experience, as well as different grades of smoke inhaled.

Hand Pipes

Hand pipes are the most common smoking device, and many choose to use them for their convenience. They are portable and easy to use. More so, hand pipes are a great way to express personal style, as they come in countless forms, colors, and decorations. They operate by burning the cannabis, trapping it in the pipe, and then the user inhales the smoke.

Water Pipes

Water pipes come in a few different variations, including bongs and bubblers. Just like hand pipes, they can come in a wide range of colors and designs, but they’re a little more complicated in that they utilize water to cool and filter the smoke. There may be health benefits to using a water pipe as opposed to a hand pipe, but it’s unknown how much the water actually does to filter the smoke.

Rolling Papers

Rolling papers are simply paper rolled around marijuana. In general, they are used for smoking joints or blunts. One of the items on our marijuana delivery menu is pre-rolled joints, and they’re an easy and convenient way to consume cannabis. Blunts are cannabis rolled in cigar paper and contain nicotine as well as cannabis. 

Vaporizers

A vaporizer slowly heats the marijuana to a temperature that is high enough to extract the THC and other cannabinoids, but also low enough to prevent the potentially harmful toxins that are released through full combustion. Vaporizing marijuana is a good choice for more moderate to experienced cannabis users, as well as for those who are more health-conscious. They minimize the health risks associated with smoking, and also significantly reduce the odor of smoking weed. There is a wide range of vaping devices and models to choose from, and if you’re interested in this cannabis consumption method, you’re sure to find something that fits your needs.

Topicals

Topical cannabis products differ from other means of consuming marijuana in that they don’t provide the effect of “feeling high.” They’re a good option for consumers looking who want to keep a clear head but also get localized relief. Marijuana has been used in pain management for centuries, and many people use these creams because they’re great at relieving aches and pains without the potential side effects of medication.
