From stress and anxiety relief to reduced inflammation and chronic pain, the benefits of cannabis are easy to see. As a matter of fact, recent studies have proven there are legitimate medical uses for marijuana and cannabis-infused products. Of course, using cannabis in any form or fashion for the first time can be nerve-wracking for some people. Fortunately, help is available if you are ready to benefit from cannabis. Here are a few options to consider when you are trying cannabis for the first time.
When you first think of edibles, you probably picture "weed brownies." While these are definitely an option to consider, an overwhelming number of edible products that contain cannabis are also readily available. Brownies, cakes, cookies, and even candy edibles that contain different levels of cannabis are good options to consider for your first time.
Each type of edible will also be available in different dosages. For first-time users, it may be best to try an edible with a lower dose. Then, you can see how you react and feel after consuming the edible. If necessary, you can choose an even lower dose or a higher dose if you need more of the cannabis effect.
If you want to experience cannabis without the worry of consuming an entire edible, try a tincture for the first time. Basically, a tincture consists of the cannabis extract that is pulled out of a bottle and placed directly under the tongue. Although you will experience the effects faster than an extract, the small droplet ensures you are only taking in a small dose, which can be difficult to measure when consuming edibles.
Fortunately, tinctures are also available in a few different flavors, so you can experience the benefits of cannabis while enjoying the taste under your tongue.
Vape pens are another great way to try cannabis for the first time. Also known as e-cigarettes, vape pens create a vapor by heating up cannabis oil from a cartridge that is installed. To heat up the oil, you press the button on the vape pen and then inhale to experience the cannabis effects.
A few benefits of using vape pens with cannabis oil are that they allow you easy consumption in measured doses suited to your needs and that they do not create smoke or an odor that would linger in your home, vehicle, or another environment.
