The industry of marijuana has changed drastically over the past few years. More countries have opened their doors to the legal use of medicinal and recreational marijuana. There are now more options regarding the strains and forms that you can consume. When choosing which strain and what type to consume, you can use trial and error until you find the one that will provide you with the benefits that you need. But to help you further narrow down your choices from edibles, pre rolls or other forms and types, here are some of the characteristics that must be on your list.
Marijuana has a wide range of scents that you can choose from, and these scents will contribute to your smoking experience. There are intense aromas, and there are also fruity and earthy scents. In order to have the best smoking experience, choose the aroma that suits you best.
Different strains have different tastes. You will subject your palate to a lasting taste, so it is wise to choose to opt for something that will not overwhelm your taste buds. Nugs each have their own distinct flavor, and most times, their aroma matches their taste, but some have different aromas and flavors. If the taste is a very important aspect of your marijuana consumption, ask your dispensary about the strains that they could recommend based on your taste preference.
You are most likely using cannabis to get high. Even if you are using it for its medicinal benefits, it can still give you a high, unless you consume the leaves fresh, raw and un-aged. Each strain of marijuana has its own levels of high. The higher the THC content, the higher the effect will be. If you are a beginner, you can ask for recommendations from your dispensary on how much you can smoke or take in the beginning, and what type of strain can give you the high that you are after. You choose to be “relaxed-high” or “energetic high”. There is a specific strain for each kind of high.
Cannabis has different forms that you can enjoy. The most common type is the blunt or joint, where you roll the leaves into a rolling paper and light to smoke. Vape pens are enjoying much popularity these days. Edibles are those foods infused with marijuana. You can also add marijuana oils to various beverages like soda, tea, elixirs and even energy drinks. Sprays and tinctures have the fastest effect on the user. You spray it or use it under your tongue to get an immediate high. Tinctures are in the solution of alcohol.
In using marijuana, you have to gauge your capacity to receive it in your system. Starting with small amounts is always the wisest thing to do, and gradually increasing your intake to satisfy your tolerance will teach you how not to abuse the plant. Keep in mind that huge amounts of marijuana can have adverse effects on you, so be wary of how much you ingest.
