Cannabis can be utilized in multiple ways to support well-being. Your choice may be influenced by personal tastes, the desired outcome, and individual health requirements. Here’s a breakdown of common methods for consuming cannabis for wellness:


  1. Smoking: Rolling dried cannabis flowers into joints or using pipes or bongs. This approach yields rapid effects but could harm the lungs.
  2. Vaporization: Heating cannabis to release active compounds without burning it, creating an inhalable vapor. Seen as a likely safer smoking alternative.

Oral Consumption:

  1. Edibles: Foods and drinks infused with cannabis like cookies, brownies, and gummies provide a subtle, long-lasting effect. Start small, as potency can differ.
  2. Capsules: Softgels filled with precise amounts of cannabis oil or extract make for easy, controlled intake.


  1. Tinctures: Cannabis extracts in alcohol or oil are administered under the tongue. A quicker alternative to edibles with controlled dosing.

Topical Application: Ointments, lotions, and oils infused with cannabis are applied to the skin, mainly for localized relief without psychoactive effects.

Suppositories: Used rectally or vaginally, these offer absorption through the mucous membranes and are often utilized for pain or gastrointestinal issues.

Begin with minimal doses, and incrementally adjust based on your response. Various factors, including strain and tolerance, affect duration and intensity.

When considering using cannabis for wellness, it’s wise to consult with healthcare providers or cannabis experts to ensure proper method, dosage, and monitoring for potential medication or health condition interactions.
