Are you curious about the different cannabis consumption methods available to you and which is the most effective? Do you want to know which consumption method will be best suited to your lifestyle?

There are many different ways to consume cannabis. If you use the plant for medicinal purposes, then there are even more options for consumption. While smoking is still a popular method of ingestion, it has become less common in recent years due to the health risks associated with inhaling smoke. This hasn’t stopped online stores such as DankStop from becoming successful by selling traditional devices like bongs, and recently, have introduced a wide range of chillums. Vaporizing is becoming increasingly popular as well, as an alternative since it doesn’t produce any unwanted byproducts or tar-like residue that can accumulate in your lungs over time. 

Other methods include edibles and tinctures which are gaining traction among medical users who may not want to partake in traditional methods of smoking but still need relief from symptoms like chronic pain or nausea. If you would like to know what the various consumption methods are, here are a few. 


For those who are in the market for medicinal consumption methods for cannabis, tinctures are your best bet. Cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries. It is used commonly to help treat pain and inflammation, as well as other things just treating such as the symptoms and side effects of epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and even helping ease the symptoms of cancer.

If you are looking for fast-acting relief or fast-acting medicinal function from cannabis, then this kind of consumption method is the best form. It is a concentrated drop of cannabis that you placed under your tongue. This is the fastest method for cannabis to enter your bloodstream and circulate throughout your body.

You will feel the effects within literally a couple of minutes, and they will last for a good few hours. This is especially good for those who suffer from chronic pain and need instant relief.

Dab Rigs  

Our next consumption method is dab rigs. These pipes are very similar to that of bongs but instead of using the dried flower and combustion to create smoke that is inhaled, you would use a cannabis concentrate and a heated nail which is part of the dab rig to create vapor that is inhaled.

This vapor goes through a channel we shall ask for it to cool down before it goes to your lungs. It is a great alternative to smoking as it greatly reduces the risk of damage to your lungs, and you do not inhale any harmful carcinogens.

Just like when smoking cannabis, you will feel the effects when using a dab rig within a few minutes or up to 20 minutes and these effects will last a few hours.

Dry Herb Vaporizers 

Dry herb vaporizers or one of the newer additions to the cannabis world but they are by far one of the best editions. Many people know vaporizers to be small and convenient, but also to use a cannabis concentrate or liquid. Dry herb vaporizers differ from these vaporizers because instead of a concentrate they use the dry plant material.

This is a great product for those who enjoy smoking cannabis but want a healthier alternative and want to protect their lungs. There is no compassion involved in this, but rather a heated chamber that allows for the plant matter to release the compounds within a vapor that can then be inhaled.

The effects of this will kick in similarly to smoking and will last for a good few hours before you need another hit.


Last but not least we have edibles. This method of consumption has been around for years and years, but many people will just associate it with baked goods such as cookies and brownies. However, these days edibles are far more than just brownies.

Whether you’re in the mood for a sweet treat or a savory snack, a drink, a coffee, or even a meal, there are so many different kinds of edibles that have been infused with cannabis concentrates for you to try. Some will just contain CBD while others will focus on THC, and some just have a combination of both. There is something for everyone.

A big difference that edibles have to offer is that the duration of the high that you will feel will be far longer than you would with smoking. It is important to note that these effects will also take a lot longer to kick in and they will also be a lot more potent.
