There are so many ways to consume marijuana, that it is rarely the same from one person to the next. The best way to figure out what is best for yourself is to determine what your goal is. Are you trying to get a light head change, or are you trying to get totally blasted, or somewhere in between? How you are trying to feel will largely determine the method you end up liking the most.The most common way that people consume the first time (or first time back) seems to be the joint. A three foot double perk is very intimidating, but a doobie seems like not as much of a big deal I suppose. The joint is highly versatile (you can smoke it anywhere that smell is not a factor) and it certainly gets you high. Plus, they are fun to smoke; who doesn’t like holding fire in their hand? The big downfall to the joint though, as I alluded to above, is the smell. Joints wreak, so smoking them anywhere and everywhere is not always possible. Plus you have to re-up on papers from time to time, which is not as awesome as having a piece that is re-usable.The pipe is a logical next step to this discussion, since it is probably the second most common form of consumption. A pipe is easy to carry around, cheap if you know the right places to purchase one, and are good for the ‘pass-around group’ settings. The bowls burn longer than in pieces that use water. The big problem I have with pipes is that they don’t get me high enough. If I smoke several bowls I get high, but there is only so much smoke that fills into the chamber of the pipe at any given time, so taking my finger off the carb doesn’t give as big of hits as a bong. However, I smoke all day everyday, so my end goal is probably different than others reading this article. If you don’t smoke like a broken chimney, a pipe is a great way to go.A bubbler is a great in-between for those that have been smoking off the pipe but are not ready for the bong. A bubbler is basically just a fancy pipe with water filtration capabilities. The last method of consumption I will talk about is good old fashioned edibles. A brownie, a cookie, cannabutter on a cracker, cannabis infused oil items, you name it, I LOVE it! When you consume marijuana by smoking it, it goes into your nervous system. The high is intense and comes on quick, but it dissipates faster than when it goes into your blood stream when you eat it. When you eat it, it takes a bit to kick in (45to60 minutes), but when it does, oh my…This can be a problem for some people. They eat two brownies and are totally wrecked, when the same people should have probably only had a buttered cracker. If you are smart, you will be careful.Cookies generally take 1/3 to 1/2 of a cup of cannabutter to make a batch. The red box classic Betty Crocker brownies generally take 2/3 of a cup of cannabutter. My friend’s recipe calls for 2 full cups of cannabutter for enough frosting for 12 cupcakes. Now that’s power!As I stated before, there really is no BEST way to consume marijuana for all consumers. There is only a best way for each individual consumer. Hopefully this article helped put some ideas into your head, and gave you an idea of what to try. I encourage everyone to try everything and see what’s best for them.
