How to Smoke Weed: 3 Ways to Consume Cannabis

As far as cannabis consumption goes, the delivery method is as important as the type of flower you consume. Most stoners only use one or two ways to take in their preferred marijuana strain. Some don’t even know about the other fascinating methods that are out there.  

In fact, new ways keep cropping up every day. How you consume cannabis determines the nature of the mental and physical benefits you stand to gain since each method delivers a unique experience. 

In this article, we’ll look at the different ways to partake in the “holy herb.” Let the experimentation begin.

Weed Consumption Methods

There is a host of ways to consume marijuana. All these delivery methods are classified into three categories:

  • Inhalation 
  • Oral
  • Topical

Thanks to this classification system, marijuana consumers can have an easy time finding their ideal method. 

Inhalation (Smoking)

This is the most traditional and time-tested method of consuming cannabis. Given that cannabinoids go into your body via your lungs this way, they’re absorbed directly into your bloodstream. Once the THC enters your circulatory system, it’s only a matter of seconds before it reaches your brain.

The good thing about smoking weed is that it affords you better control and monitoring of the amount of marijuana you consume. So, you’re less likely to overindulge and get too stoned. 

Here are the various smoking options.


Lighting up a joint is arguably the most common and widely used method of smoking cannabis. You only need three things to make a joint: rolling papers, a bud, and filters.

Your choice of paper will influence your smoking experience. Rolling papers are engineered to afford you a smooth, uniform burn. There are ever-increasing innovations in papers, from designs like terpene-infused papers to see-through rolling papers derived from plant cellulose. Simply roll cannabis buds in your preferred paper, then spark it up and enjoy your smoke.



Blunts are comparable to joints in several ways. However, blunts are rolled in cigar paper derived from the tobacco plant and filled with marijuana. Moreover, they are typically thicker and accommodate more cannabis, making them a more potent option than the smaller, thinner joint. Blunt users usually prefer the mixed effects of nicotine and weed.


These are water pipes used with marijuana flowers. Water is used to cool the smoke right before it enters your lungs. As such, the smoke is smoother to inhale. Plus, the water serves as a filter, eliminating a number of the carcinogens present in smoke. Many experienced smokers prefer bongs to consume marijuana because of the abovementioned benefits coupled with the fact that they deliver quick, intense highs. 


Smoking weed through a bowl is one of the most convenient consumption methods. Bowls are small hand pipes that bear a resemblance to tobacco pipes. They come in different designs and materials, including glass, wood, metal, silicone, and ceramic. Users can consume smaller amounts and don’t need to use rolling papers as they would with a joint. You can make do-it-yourself bowls from available products, like bananas or even apples if you’re creative enough.


Crossing an ordinary glass pipe and a water pipe produces a bubbler. They are smaller compared to bongs but somewhat bigger than the average bowl. They use water to give a clean smoke that is less harsh when you inhale it. Owing to their small size, they make an excellent alternative for those who love bongs but only want smaller doses. Plus, they are an excellent travel option. Their overall user-friendliness makes them a suitable choice for both novice and veteran smokers. 


Pre-rolls, also called pre-rolled joints, are ground-up marijuana flowers rolled in a wrap or rolling paper along with a filter. Imagine pre-rolls the way you see a cigarette, but replace the filled tobacco with cannabis. You don’t have to do the tough job of rolling it because it’s already done. All you do is buy it from the dispensary and light it up. Many users prefer pre-rolls, as they are discreet compared to bongs, dabs, or bowls.


Dabs are concentrated forms of marijuana created via the extraction of cannabinoids like THC from the weed plant. They are extracted using solvents like CO2, butane, or ethanol. Dabs are also called butane hash oil (BHO), wax, shatter, or budder. 

Dabbing requires specific equipment, including a dab rig. The wax concentrate is placed on the rig and then heated while the consumer inhales the smoke. When done correctly, the inhaled product can be clean and pure and deliver an intense high. New cannabis users love dabs, and this has seen the introduction of new dabbing products, like concentrate pens and weed extract cartridges.



Vaping weed can be a healthier option than smoking because it heats the marijuana instead of burning it. A typical vaping device consists of a mouthpiece, chamber, and a heating system, powered by a compatible battery. The oil or distillate made of concentrated quantities of cannabinoids and terpenes is put in the chamber of the vape cartridge. It is then heated to a temperature that converts the active compounds into vapor. 

Most vaping devices heat weed products at relatively low temperatures, which activates many of the cannabinoids and terpenes present in each flower. They usually come with precise temperature controls so that users can select a temperature suited to the type of cannabinoid or terpene used. As such, you can effectively decarb or activate your weed with only negligible amounts being burned off. The three primary types of vaporizers are portable vaporizers, tabletop vaporizers, and vape pens.


Not an enthusiast of inhalants? No worries. You have alternative methods to consume your cannabis, including oral consumption. When weed is consumed orally, note that:

  • The resulting effects from the cannabinoids will take longer to show
  • The effects will be stronger

On average, marijuana users who opt for the oral consumption method will feel the effects after half an hour. At times, the effects may pop up more than an hour later and last longer, depending on the consumer. Plus, you will experience more substantial effects because during the digestion of the marijuana, the cannabinoids go through a chemical transformation that strengthens them.

Below are the different oral consumption methods.


Edibles include any food item infused with cannabis. Classic examples are:

  • Cannabis ice cream
  • Weed cookies
  • Candies
  • Snacks

It may take almost two hours before you start feeling high from an edible, but that high will be intense and long-lasting.  

No matter the type of edible, its recipe calls for marijuana to undergo decarboxylation at some point. Decarboxylation is a process that involves applying low heat to cannabis for a prolonged period to stimulate its compounds, such as CBD and THC. You can directly mix a small amount of activated cannabis into your favorite food for an immediate edible experience



Cannabis tinctures are sold in small dropper bottles and can be taken sublingually, added into different weed recipes, or swallowed for an edible effect. Administering them under your tongue allows the cannabinoids to be absorbed into your bloodstream quickly. Plus, the duration of effects is more prolonged than with smoking. 

Since they quickly enter the bloodstream when consumed sublingually, cannabis tinctures are suitable for users seeking quick but lasting effects of cannabinoids. Rates vary based on the individual and type of tincture, but the effects generally hit their peak at two or three hours. 

Medicinal users will benefit from the use of tinctures because they can easily measure and regulate the dosage through dropper vials. They are also suitable for non-smokers, those who want low doses, and those who don’t want the more potent high of edibles. Tinctures are discreet. Sublingual administration in public does not attract snooping eyes, like puffing a joint would.


THC sprays are often either oil or alcohol based. They are mainly administered orally by spraying a few spritzes under the tongue, and then you can enjoy a fast-acting hit of cannabinoids. 

They come in varying ratios of CBD and THC and different flavors so that users can use them for medical or wellness purposes. They are well suited to all types of marijuana users, whether novice or experienced, because they come in a range of strengths. If you’re asthmatic and unable to inhale smoke, THC sprays can be your go-to weed consumption method. Typically, a few spritzes are all you need to get to a nice high place. 


As with any prescription drug, cannabis can be administered in the form of a pill or capsule. Weed capsules are many users’ preferred way of consuming marijuana because of the following reasons:

  • They deliver a predictable dose of cannabinoids, so they are regarded as safer than smoking.
  • They are discreet since they don’t smell or release smoke.
  • They can treat different illnesses when mixed with other ingredients, like B12 vitamins or melatonin for insomnia.
  • The THC in them produces long-lasting psychoactive effects.

Dissolvable Strips

You’ve probably seen or used a breath strip, right? Weed strips borrow the same concept but are infused with CBD or THC. These are small squares of edible paper that effortlessly dissolve when they mix with your saliva. That makes your cannabis consumption as discreet as can be. 


While drinks mixed with cannabis are nothing new, they are not the most popular way to ingest cannabis. It’s not a straightforward process, but you can make weed tea, weed beer, or even cannabis coffee right in the comfort of your home. All you need is decarboxylation, and then you can combine the decarbed concentrate with your choice of drink. 

Cannabis drinks vary. Some are entirely non-psychotropic or have milder high effects, thanks to a blend of CBD and THC strains. Others contain higher THC content and combine caffeine with THC to deliver a more potent high. If you prefer a chilled-out morning, consider CBD coffee for a relaxed feeling. 



Don’t fancy inhaling or ingesting your weed? Well, consider topicals. These are lotions infused with marijuana for relief from chronic pain, muscle spasms, and soreness. They employ the medicinal attributes of CBD to transform the way you feel. Some of the main types of topicals include:


You can apply CBD topical creams directly on your skin to target an area affected by pain. Since CBD does not produce the intoxicating effects that THC does, you will not feel high when you rub the cream on your skin. All you can expect is localized pain relief.

In fact, many athletes are turning to CBD creams as an alternative to OTC pain relievers because they can alleviate muscle aches without the possible side effects of medication. Apart from athletes, topical creams are also ideal for sufferers of paranoia, anxiety, pain, PTSD, and other serious conditions. 


Transdermal cannabis patches have made a late entry into the marijuana world. They’re the same as band-aids but infused with CBD, THC, or both. They’re not designed to get you high but to alleviate pain caused by a host of conditions. The patch is usually applied to a venous section of your body, like your wrist, arm, or ankle. Next, your body heat triggers the patch, which in turn releases a consistent stream of CBD into the bloodstream, delivering a discreet, steady relief.

The Bottom Line

At this point, you’re well aware of the different ways to consume cannabis. So, if you don’t love smoking, you can still get your dose of CBD or THC. Whether you’re using cannabis for purely medicinal purposes or want something to increase your focus, there’s a delivery method to suit your situation. Now, the onus is on you to figure out what suits you best.

6 Awesome Vegan Cannabis Edibles to Make at Home

6. Cannamilk

Vegan cannamilk is also referred to as cannabis-infused non-dairy milk. It is one of the best ways to infuse pot into baked products. The most important point is to use at least three grams of fat for every serving. This is because THC and CBD are fat-soluble and ingesting cannabis this way ensures your body gets the cannabinoids more readily. To make cannamilk, here is what you need:


  • Cannabis – About 9 grams
  • Soy milk or a non-dairy alternative – 1 cup


  1. At the start of every cannamilk making process, you have to do some decarboxylation to activate the THC. To do this, break up the cannabis into small bits the size of rice grains and bake it for 45 minutes at 225 degrees. 
  2. Then, add the milk and dec-carbed cannabis to a saucepan over medium heat. 
  3. Let the mixture simmer for about an hour as you stir occasionally, ensuring it does not boil. This is because temperatures above 250 degrees might degrade the THC in your weed.
  4. Next, use a cheesecloth or strainer to sieve out the plant material.
  5. Pour the ready cannamilk into a jar or glass bottle and refrigerate it. Or you can start preparing one of the cannabis edibles mentioned above, if you have the munchies.

How To Make the Best Cannabis-Infused Drinks

Cannabis Edibles are now among the most sought-after cannabis products for users. However, using Edibles is often inconvenient as they can take a while to kick in and the effects take even longer to wear off. Luckily, Cannabis Beverages are a great alternative and you can even learn how to make the best cannabis-infused drinks at home.

Cannabis-infused drinks work a lot like Edibles. You consume them orally, as you would any other drink, and after around 30 minutes you’ll feel the effects of cannabis. They work faster than Edibles and the effects don’t last as long, making them arguably much more convenient- as well as delicious and refreshing. So how do you make them? Here are some of the best cannabis-infused drinks you can make right now.

How To Make Cannabis-Infused Milk

If you want to make some of the best cannabis-infused drinks, then it’s worth making cannabis milk first. Not only can you drink cannabis milk by itself, but you can also infuse it into all kinds of other drinks, including hot drinks, milkshakes, smoothies, and more. It’s also quite simple to make compared to other cannabis-infused condiments, just make sure you use full-fat milk.


  • 500ml of full-fat milk
  • 2 grams of cannabis buds

Step 1: Start by boiling plenty of water in a saucepan and placing a steel bowl inside to create a double boiler.

Step 2: Next, add your milk and cannabis to the steel bowl. You’ll want to use around 0.5-1 gram of cannabis for every 250ml of milk you use, although you can use more or less depending on how potent you want it to be. Break the cannabis into buds before adding it.

Step 3: Allow the milk to boil (this usually takes around 15 minutes) then lower the temperature and leave it to simmer for 2-3 hours while stirring occasionally. It’s important not to let your cannabis buds boil for long as this will reduce their potency.

Step 4: After leaving your milk to boil for 2-3 hours, slowly strain it into a sealable jar or container through a cheesecloth. This separates the milk from the leftover cannabis. You can then place your container in the fridge and use your potent cannabis milk when you need it.

How To Make Cannabis-Infused Coffee

How To Make Cannabis-Infused Coffee

Want to start your morning with a kick of caffeine and the soothing effects of cannabis? You can do so by making cannabis-infused coffee. You might want to make cannabis coffee by adding a small dose of cannabis-infused milk to a regular cup of coffee, but this method is arguably even simpler.


  • 3 cups of water
  • Coffee granules
  • Milk
  • Cannabis Tincture

Step 1: Start by brewing a cup of coffee as you normally would. One of the simplest ways to do so is to boil 3 cups of water, add coffee granules, and stir, but you can also make it using a coffee machine or any other method you want.

Step 2: Add your milk and any other additions you want to your coffee. Now, simply allow your coffee to cool down slightly before adding Cannabis Tincture.

Step 3: Add your desired dose of Cannabis Tincture Oil to your cup of coffee and stir thoroughly. THC Tinctures will add the effects of cannabis to your coffee, but you can also use CBD Tincture if you want to avoid these effects. A dose of around 15 mg of Tincture is good for most users.

Step 4: Tinctures are designed to mix into other liquids with ease, so after stirring, your potent cannabis coffee is ready. You can also use this method to make cannabis-infused tea or hot chocolate.

How To Make Cannabis-Infused Lemonade

While Cannabis Milk is great for smoothies and milkshakes and Cannabis Coffee or Tea is perfect for waking up in the morning, cannabis-infused lemonade is arguably the most refreshing cannabis beverage you can make. This will help soothe your body and relax your mind while also providing a refreshing summer drink.


  • 2 cups of lemon juice
  • 5 cups of cold water
  • 200 grams of sugar
  • Cannabis Tincture
  • A few ice cubes

Step 1: First, juice your lemons into a bowl or container. You can do this by hand or use an electric juicer to make the process simpler. Around 6-8 lemons should give you around 2 cups or 500ml of lemon juice.

Step 2: Mix your lemon juice with the sugar and water in a pitcher and stir thoroughly until the sugar dissolves. You should use around 5 cups of water and 200 grams of sugar for 2 cups of lemon juice, although you might want to experiment with different proportions.

Step 3: You can now add a few drops of Cannabis Tincture to your lemonade and stir thoroughly. You might want to add this to a single cup of lemonade rather than to the whole pitcher to make controlling your dosage easier.

You can also make cannabis syrup by boiling decarboxylated cannabis buds with sugar and water. This can then be added to your lemonade mixture for a potent cannabis-infused lemonade. However, this method is more time-consuming than simply using THC or CBD Tincture.

How To Make Cannabis-Infused Lemonade

How do Cannabis Drinks Compare to Traditional Edibles?

Cannabis Edibles have become one of the most popular choices for users looking to get the effects of cannabis. These cannabis-infused food products give users an easy and enjoyable way to medicate, although they can also take a long time to kick in and can be overwhelming for beginner users. Luckily, there’s another great alternative in Cannabis Drinks.

Much like Edibles, Cannabis Drinks allow you to get the effects of cannabis via oral consumption. All you have to do is to swig on a cannabis-infused drink and wait for the potent effects of cannabis to kick in. However, there are some key differences between these two product types and the kind of experience they’ll give you. So how do Cannabis Drinks compare to traditional Edibles? Here’s what you need to know.

Cannabis Drinks Can Get You High Faster Than Edibles

Many users prefer using Cannabis Edibles to other options such as smoking or vaping weed as they’re easier to use and offer a more enjoyable experience. However, the main drawback of using Cannabis Edibles is that it can take up to 2 hours before you even feel their effects. As such, they’re far from ideal for those who want potent, fast-acting effects.

Cannabis Drinks largely solve this problem. When you eat cannabis-infused food products, your body must first process the food and digest it before the cannabinoids make their way into your system. This process is much quicker when you use Cannabis Drinks as liquids are metabolized faster.

That doesn’t mean that you’ll feel the effects of Cannabis Drinks instantly, but you won’t have to wait as long as you would with Edibles. The effects of Cannabis Drinks often kick in about 30 minutes after consumption, and some types of cannabis-infused beverages might even kick in faster.

The Effects Of Cannabis Drinks Wear Off Faster

The Effects Of Cannabis Drinks Wear Off Faster

Since your body processes liquid products faster than solid food products, Cannabis Drinks are great for users who want to get high quicker. However, while they’ll give you the effects of cannabis quicker than Edibles, it’s also worth noting that the effects of Cannabis Drinks usually don’t last as long.

Cannabis Edibles are known for inducing a particularly long-lasting high. Generally, the effects of Edibles can last for anywhere from 4-12 hours. This makes them a good choice for users who want powerful and long-lasting effects, but it isn’t always ideal.

Although some users may enjoy being high for so long, others prefer a shorter-lasting high. Cannabis Drinks are ideal for this. Although they’ll still give you strong effects, the effects generally don’t last as long as Edibles. This makes them great for users who want a more manageable high.

It’s Easier To Control Your Dosage With Cannabis Drinks

Cannabis Edibles are known for producing much stronger effects than you’d get from smoking or vaping weed. This is because, when THC is consumed orally, your body converts it into 11-hydroxy-THC, a stronger form of the chemical. As such, even a 10mg dosage of Edibles can give you a powerful high.

Although this is beneficial for users who want strong effects, it can also make it hard to control your dosage. Since Edibles take so long to kick in, many users end up eating more than they should. What’s more, sometimes a single cannabis gummy or chocolate is enough to get you extremely high, and many users make the mistake of eating more.

In contrast, it’s easier to control your dosage when you use Cannabis Drinks. A large Cannabis Beverage can be infused with just a small amount of THC, allowing you to drink plenty without worrying about getting too high. Plus, since the effects kick in quicker and wear off faster, you can decide whether you need to increase your dosage without having to wait for hours.

There Are Many Types Of Cannabis Drinks

Cannabis Edibles come in various forms. For instance, you can find cannabis-infused gummies, chocolate bars, and all kinds of baked goods like cookies and brownies. Similarly, you can also choose between many different types of Cannabis Drinks depending on what suits you the best.

Those who want a cool and refreshing Cannabis Drink can try cannabis-infused fruit juices or smoothies. Not only are these delicious, but they’re cool, refreshing, and the terpenes in fruits can even enhance the effects of cannabinoids.

Some users prefer cannabis-infused hot drinks. For instance, Cannabis Tea is a particularly popular type of cannabis-infused beverage that’s potent and easy to make. You could even try Cannabis Coffee or THC-infused Hot Chocolate.

One of the biggest problems with making Cannabis Edibles is that the process is tricky and time-consuming.

In contrast, Cannabis Drinks are much easier to make.

There are numerous ways to make Cannabis Drinks, but it’s generally much easier than cooking Cannabis Edibles. For instance, you can make Cannabis Tea by brewing decarbed cannabis buds in hot water before adding tea, but there’s also an even easier method.

Using Cannabis Tincture is the easiest way to make all kinds of Cannabis Drinks. Simply measure your dosage and mix it into your juice, smoothie, coffee, cocktail, or any other beverage you want. You can buy Cannabis Tinctures and other cannabis products from a cannabis delivery service.
