How Are Medical Cannabis Products Used?
Smoking is the fastest method of consumption. The effects are felt almost immediately, so this method may be the most popular for it’s ability to control dosage.
Vaporizing is a good alternative to smoking. The cannabis heats at a lower temperature allowing the active ingredients to evaporate into a vapor which may lower your exposure to any byproducts released in smoking.
Edibles are slower to kick in, and usually deliver a heavier effect. For chronic pain and sleep issues, edibles are very effective and popular. Caution must be taken to watch your recommended dosage carefully! Find tips for ensuring proper dosage and edible safety here
