Visiting an online weed shop full of bud, edibles, oils, lotions, and capsules can be overwhelming for those unfamiliar with weeds.
Where do you actually start?
The following is a summary of the general effects of different weed consumption methods and product types.
Vaporization and Smoking
Inhalation methods provide the most immediate relief, but the effects are not as persistent as the methods that can be taken.
Edibles, Tinctures, Capsules
Ingestible methods take longer to take effect but are long-lasting.
Both inhaled and absorbable cannabis should be administered with caution, but special care should be taken as edible cannabis has a strong effect and can last for several hours when taken in large amounts.
CBD and THC affect anxiety differently. So, keep that in mind when choosing a product and always choose a CBD and THC level product that suits you.
Here’s an overview of what you need to know about weed products commonly used to combat anxiety.
Dry buds that can be smoked or vaporized. Find the strain you like and inhale it for immediate relief. The inhalation method works much faster than the absorption method.
Pre Filled Oil Vape-
Vape pens preloaded with cannabis oil, so you don’t have to worry about installing them. Take a small puff and gradually increase it as needed. The effect works quickly, but if you are new to cannabis, wait a few minutes and try the next hit to make sure the dose is correct.
liquid extract that is applied and absorbed under the tongue. It is usually faster than other absorbable methods, but lasts longer than inhaled cannabis. It has the advantages of accurate dosing and a clean, smokeless experience. CBD oil is a particularly popular option for relieving anxiety.
Foods and drinks infused with cannabis oil. Edible cannabis products can take up to two hours to be fully effective and then feel for several hours. If you are using cannabis for anxiety, consider taking very small doses to get started. “Microdose” (that is, too few doses to produce a euphoric effect) helped consumers who wanted to clear their heads and eliminate their fears.
