Is There a Best Way To Consume Cannabis?

What’s the best way to consume cannabis?

The other day I wrote an article about smoking cannabis versus vaping cannabis – which one is better? While most people agreed that vaping does have less of a toll on the body, there were some people who claimed that the article was “bullshit”.

Now, I won’t dive into the details about why vaping is a healthier alternative to smoking, but today I want to focus on the best ways to consume cannabis.

Before I continue however, note that any way you choose to consume cannabis is the “best way”. There are no set of rules that dictate that cannabis should be consumed in one particular way – this despite that certain lawmakers in Colorado wants to introduce a universal cannabis dispensing device.


There are different ways to consume cannabis – the real question we should ask is, “which is the right way for YOU!”


The Different Ways You Can Consume Cannabis

First, let’s quickly take a look at the most common ways of consuming cannabis.


Smoking it– The first most common method of consuming cannabis is smoking it. You can smoke it in a pipe, bong, joint, blunt or even an apple. The heat releases the THC into the smoke, you inhale it and get high. The problem with smoking weed however is that you burn off a lot of beneficial compounds, terpenes and so forth. You do get a concentrated dose of THC, but you’re not getting the full effect of the plant.
