How To Find The Best Cannabis Products For You
At greenRush, we’re all about helping you find the best cannabis products to suit your needs. In this article, we take a look at 6 different types of cannabis products, what they do, and how they’re used.
Smoking cannabis flowers (or buds) is easily the most traditional way to use cannabis. The most popular ways to smoke cannabis flowers include using a pipe or rolling a cannabis cigarette (also called a joint), but some vaporizers can also be used to vape ground cannabis flowers.
Flowers are arguably the best entry point to start using cannabis products. Whether you smoke or vape them, cannabis flowers have a fast-onset, meaning you’ll feel the effects within a few minutes of your first inhale, and deliver much more subtle effects than edibles or concentrates, for example.
While there are a plethora of strains out there, we definitely recommend trying this Korova Mendo Breath 1/8th from Cannabis Express in San Francisco. It delivers strong physical effects that’ll leave you feeling relaxed and calm.
Edibles are well established as some of the best cannabis products on the market. Edible manufacturers usually start by infusing some kind of fat (typically oil or butter) with cannabis, then using the infused oil to make brownies, cookies, gummies, and more.
Edibles are much more potent than regular cannabis flowers and deliver long-lasting effects. They can be a little tricky to dose and also tend to have a slow onset, meaning it can take up to 45 minutes or more to feel the effect.
If you’re looking to take a step into the wide world of edibles, we highly recommend trying this KIVA Dark Chocolate Bar from Left Coast Collective. KIVA is a well-established edibles manufacturer, and these chocolate bars are delicious and easy to dose (each piece contains exactly 5mg of THC).
Vaporizers haven’t been around for as long as edibles and flowers, but they have quickly become some of the most popular cannabis products on the market.
Part of the reason vapes have become so popular in recent years is because of how discreet and convenient they are to smoke. There are a variety of vapes on the market, both for medical and recreational use and it’s easy to customize your cannabis experience with a vape.
If you’re looking to give vaping a try, we recommend this Dosist Relief Disposable Vape Pen from Marie's Deliverables. It contains both THC and CBD and is perfect if you're looking for relief from physical symptoms like pain.
The words "concentrates" or "dabs" refer to a group of cannabis products like hash, budder, wax, and shatter. These extracts contain high concentrations of cannabinoids and are typically consumed using special devices known as “dab rigs.”
Concentrates are very popular among experienced cannabis users. They deliver a strong euphoria that hits almost instantly and lasts for roughly 1-2 hours. New users usually won’t start with concentrates, as the rigs used to consume them are pricey and can be difficult to use.
If you’re interested in getting into the world of concentrates, we highly recommend trying this Raw Garden Orange’sicle Sauce from Compassionate Bay Delivery 831. It delivers a strong, uplifting euphoria and boasts a rich orange aroma.
Topicals, as the name suggests, are cannabis products designed to be applied topically to the skin. They are very popular among medical patients or users looking to experience the health benefits of cannabis without “getting high.”
Some popular varieties of cannabis topicals include balms, lotions, ointments, creams, and oils. They are great for spot treating symptoms of pain and inflammation, and can also help with skin conditions like itching, irritation, rashes, hot spots, and more.
If you’re wanting to test the power of topicals, we highly recommend trying Mary’s Elite CBD Compound from Essence in Henderson. Mary’s Nutritionals is a respected cannabis company and this ointment is great for treating sore muscles, aches, and other pains.
Tinctures have been around for centuries. In fact, cannabis tinctures were readily available in US pharmacies prior to prohibition and were one of the most popular pain relievers. Today, they are still relatively popular, especially among medical patients.
Tinctures are made by infusing alcohol with cannabis. They can be used orally using a dropper or mixed into food and drinks. They are very easy to dose and deliver fast relief when taken under the tongue. When swallowed, however, tinctures pass through the digestive system and can take longer to take effect.
To try tinctures for yourself, we recommend trying this Remedy Tincture from Jenny's in North Las Vegas. It's especially effective for offering fast relief from physical symptoms like pain and inflammation.
