Observed every year in June, National Safety Month focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death in the workplace, while driving, and in our homes and communities. Spearheaded by the National Safety Council (NSC) and thousands of organizations throughout the country, they are committed to spreading awareness after various safety topics, such as emergency preparedness and wellness.
At The Station, we would like to get into the spirit of safety by helping people determine the healthiest way to consume cannabis. From smoking to vaporizing, users now have more options than ever before. However, we are all different, so what works for someone may not work for another.
The following are some of the healthiest and safest ways you can consume Cannabis:
- Patches and transdermals – Similar to those used for nicotine, patches are evenly dosed cannabis-infused products. Keep in mind, they are often used for medicinal purposes, providing long-lasting relief (approximately eight to 12 hours) for people who want to continue going to work or school while receiving treatment.
- Tinctures – Tinctures are a liquid concentration of cannabis that is consumed by allowing it to dissolve on your tongue and absorb into the bloodstream without being first digested. They can come in the form of drops, breath strips, suckers, and gums. People who cannot smoke or want a measured dose typically use tinctures. The high can take effect in one to three minutes, lasting one to three hours.
- Vaporizers – Similar to smoking, vaporizing involves heating the cannabis instead of burning it. Therefore, vaporization is a healthier alternative because it eliminates potential damage to the lungs and throat associated with exposure to heat and burned organic matter. Although there is no scientific evidence proving that vaporizing is healthier than smoking, it is considered less harmful.
- Smoking – Smoking is considered the most popular way to consume cannabis, enabling users to feel the effects immediately and only for a short period of time. This is the ideal method for those who do not want to be high for very long and do want fast relief for acute issues. Cannabis can be smoked in the form of a bowl, joint, blunt, bong, or pipe.
Now that we have provided you with the safest ways to consume marijuana, it is up to you to determine which works best for you.
