If you’re a Florida patient with a Florida medical card, you can find a massive range of cannabis strains from dispensaries in the state. However, while smoking Cannabis Flower is one of the most popular choices, there are also many other ways to consume cannabis that you might prefer. After all, many of these methods are more convenient, as well as healthier.

Florida dispensaries now provide various types of cannabis products, so whether you prefer the convenience of using Cannabis Tinctures, the enjoyability of using Cannabis Edibles, or the experience of vaping cannabis, there are many great options. So what are the best ways to consume cannabis? Here are some of the most popular options.

Smoking Cannabis

Although some users have issues with smoking cannabis, it’s still one of the most popular and effective methods of cannabis consumption. When you smoke cannabis, you get the effects of THC within seconds and they can last for many hours. If you want them to last longer, you just have to take another draw.

One of the good things about smoking cannabis is that you have plenty of cannabis strains to choose from. Patients can choose based on the kind of effects they want for their symptoms, and each strain also has a unique taste, with some being more enjoyable than others.

There are also multiple ways you can smoke cannabis. Some patients may prefer to use a Pipe or Bong to inhale their favorite strains of Cannabis Flower. However, you can also roll a joint for quick and convenient smoking. Most dispensaries even offer pre-rolled joints for maximum convenience.

Vaping Cannabis

Vaping is one of the best ways to consume cannabis for many reasons. Vaping involves using a device known as a Vaporizer to heat your cannabis without burning it. As a result, you get smooth, inhalable vapor that’s much easier on your lungs than cannabis smoke while still giving you the same benefits.

Since it helps you avoid taking in burning chemicals and toxins, many users consider vaping cannabis to be a safer alternative to smoking. Plus, according to a study comparing the effects of vaping cannabis to smoking cannabis, vaping cannabis gives you stronger effects. As such, you can get the medical benefits you need without having to inhale too much.

Another one of the biggest benefits of vaping is that there are many ways you can vape cannabis. A Dry Herb Vape Pen can be used to vape all of your favorite cannabis strains. However, you can also use a Concentrate Vape Pen to vape high-THC extracts like Shatter or Wax or an Oil Vape Pen for vaping THC Vape Cartridges and Oils.

Cannabis Tinctures

Using Cannabis Tinctures is one of the most popular methods of consuming cannabis today, especially for medical marijuana patients who want to avoid inhaling anything. Using these liquid cannabis products is as simple as applying some under your tongue, although they’re also versatile enough to be used in other ways.

Many users enjoy using Cannabis Tinctures as they make it convenient to get a specific dose of THC. You can measure your desired dosage using the dropper provided, apply the tincture under your tongue, hold it there for around a minute or two, and the cannabinoids will be absorbed into your system. It can take around 20 minutes for them to take effect, but it’s still a highly convenient method of consumption.

Alternatively, you can also add a dose of Cannabis Tincture to your food for homemade cannabis edibles or even mix it into your coffee, juice, or another beverage. Various THC Tinctures are available for users who want to get the potent effects of THC, but users who want to avoid psychoactive effects can also use CBD Tinctures.

Cannabis Edibles

Recently, Cannabis Edibles became legal for medical marijuana patients in Florida. This is great news for medical marijuana users as Cannabis Edibles offer one of the best ways to consume cannabis. Using them is as simple as eating a tasty marijuana-infused treat, but the effects are much stronger than other methods of consumption and last for much longer.

When you eat a Cannabis Edible, it can take around 30-90 minutes for the effects to kick in. This is because your body must digest the edible and convert the THC to 11-hydroxy-THC, a more potent form of the chemical. Once the effects kick in, they can last for anywhere from 4-12 hours. It’s usually best to take a dose of 10mg or less so it isn’t too overwhelming.

Many medical users enjoy using Cannabis Edibles as they can provide relief for their symptoms for many hours. Plus, eating some Cannabis Gummies or Chocolates is a lot more fun than taking Capsules or Tinctures. Although the long-lasting effects can be overwhelming for some, you can make the effects milder by micro-dosing or using CBD Edibles.

Cannabis Topicals

One of the most interesting methods of consuming cannabis is using Cannabis Topicals. These are topical products such as creams, lotions, balms, and bath products that have been infused with cannabinoids. They offer a unique and novel method of applying cannabinoids to your body, although they work quite differently from other methods of consumption.

While most THC-infused products will give you psychoactive effects, Cannabis Topicals allow you to absorb THC without getting high. This is because topically-applied THC isn’t absorbed into your bloodstream (except for THC Patches). However, they can still be beneficial as the cannabinoids absorbed interact with cannabinoid receptors under the skin.

Cannabis Topicals are usually used to target a specific area of the body. For instance, a patient with a sore leg might rub some THC-infused cream around the area for relief. Some topicals are also designed to help with skin problems, such as acne and skin inflammation. Topicals come in many forms and while most are applied directly to the body, you can also use products such as Cannabis Bath Bombs.

The Takeaway

These are some of the best ways to consume cannabis, but there are other options you should also consider. Some patients may prefer to use Cannabis Capsules, Transdermal Patches, or even Suppositories. Luckily, dispensaries have a product to suit every patient.

Before you can use any of these products, you’ll need to make sure you have your Florida medical marijuana card.
