Like many folks new to recreational cannabis, you might find yourself across the counter from a bright-eyed budtender trying haplessly to share with you their vast knowledge of the hundreds of diverse THC and CBD products available. It can be a lot of information to take in, especially in one visit.
The marijuana industry has grown and evolved since the statewide introduction of recreational shops. Gaining a solid understanding of the types of marijuana products recently introduced to the buying public can help you achieve more than just a comfortable high, it can expand your horizons and introduce you to whole new levels of intoxication (in a good way).
Concentrates — Wax, shatter and oil are all concentrated forms of marijuana. They can be consumed with special glass water pipes, with electronic vape pens or used in small amounts to supplement joints and bowls. Concentrates pack a punch, and are typically more intoxicating than flowers. When experimenting with concentrates, start slow until you find the product, strain and delivery method that works best for you.
Edibles — We’ve come a long way since the weed brownies of our collective youth. Today edibles can be found in the form of gummy candies, luscious chocolate truffles, beverages, cooking oils and more. Similar to concentrates, most edibles are baked with a concentrated weed oil or butter, so it’s crucial to start slow and give your consumed edibles time to activate (which can sometimes take up to a couple hours).
Tinctures and Lotions — CBD is the therapeutic component of marijuana and can be found in holistic tinctures and lotions. These products come in both oral and topical varieties and can provide relief for a litany of ailments.
