5 Smoke-free ways to consume cannabis

alternatives to smoking cannabis

Imagine a life paradox someone might be experiencing right now: an undying love for cannabis and great hatred for smoking.

However surprising it may sound, it is not that uncommon. Many people claim to enjoy the effects of weed, thus, like consumption, while at the same time hate smoking. If you think that is a bit odd, remember back in time.

Remember your first bland or a cigarette? You probably had zero ideas of how to inhale correctly or how long to keep the smoke inside your lounges. Your throat, or maybe even your tongue, were burning like hell. I bet you were coughing pretty hard. And lastly, you suddenly felt an urgent need to eat something sweet. No matter the diet you were on. Right. We’ve all been there.

Depending on your later encounters and relationship with cannabis, you might have overcome the unpleasant I-don’t-know-what-to-do beginner stage. If you are lucky enough to be a part of this group, chances are you enjoy smoking weed a lot right now. Good for you.

However, if you get discouraged after a couple of unsuccessful smoking attempts, you are probably not one of the most excellent smokers. That is fine. That doesn’t matter that much. The crucial question here is different. Are there any other forms of consuming cannabis than smoking it, or is my relationship with marijuana over once and forever?

Undoubtedly, it is hard to resist the rewarding high weed has to offer. The good news is you don’t have to.


Who doesn’t like eating? How about eating and getting high at the same time? Killing two birds with one stone is always an excellent option.

Edibles are cannabis-infused foods and drinks. If you consider yourself a Masterchef, that’s something for you, anything that calls for butter and oil should be of your particular interest here. Start with basic things such as pot brownies and bring your weed cooking game to another level. Use professionals’ help if you need to.

Don’t worry about the medical test results after cannabis consumption. If you need to be clean as a whistle, you can always go to buyfakeurine.com. They will support you with a fake urine cup, a cover you were just looking for.

One thing that is for sure when preparing foods, including marijuana. Start with a smaller dosage, and once you get the hang of it, gradually build it up. Also, be patient and let your digestive system work. It might take a moment, but the psychoactive effects are going to be intense.


These are THC or CBD extracted, infused liquids that should be applied directly under your tongue. They come in many different strengths, flavors, and cannabinoid types inside. Don’t hesitate to try them all but, at the same time, act reasonably.

Tinctures enter your bloodstream immediately. That means you will feel the effects of marijuana kicking in much faster than in any other form of consumption. It would be best if you were very careful with the dosage.

Remember, if you feel your high isn’t enough, you can always add some more a little later. It doesn’t work the other way around, though.

Be sure you know the incredibly important differences between edibles and sublingual tinctures.


Dabbing is a practice of inhaling small quantities of concentrated and vaporized cannabis. A method suggested for veterans rather than novices.

You drop marijuana concentrate on a heated surface, such as a nail, inhale deeply through a dab rig to feel the high. One of the reasons behind this method’s popularity is that the concentrates are highly refined. This means they are going to be free of plant material.


Transdermal patches deliver the THC, CBN, or CBD directly to the bloodstream. Despite the process being quite slow, they are very effective. Moreover, they are super discreet, long-lasting, and easy to use. Experienced users recommend it for people who are new to the cannabis band.


Least but not the last: the topicals. This form of cannabis usage, contrasting with others, will not give you high. However, it will help you go through the healing process.

Topicals are cannabis-infused balms, lotions, and creams. The active THC can work miracles when it comes to pain relief, inflammation, soreness, and skin irritation. All you have to do is put it on your skin. There are no psychoactive side effects, so no need to worry. You can rub your skin gently with a topical after the morning shower and still go to work, without worrying about potential high kicking in, right in the middle of a business meeting. 

Learn about how topicals work!

Now that you have educated yourself on all the options available go and try them out. Smoking-free methods can be fun, and who knows, you may end up liking them more eventually.
