It is always interesting to think about how our ancestors were able to discover the things we take for granted today. What was the thought process of the first human to take cow’s milk? How did people know which plants were poisonous and which ones were fine? How did they know which ones were poisonous yet still safe to consume? These are some great mysteries that we should be thankful that we know by default now.
Cannabis is one such plant that our ancestors knew very well that was beneficial for us. It was not until the colonists started making cannabis into the devil’s lettuce through propaganda. Now, we know that this schism of misinformation regarding cannabis brought many misdeeds. With the scientific approach, we are able to understand the many benefits our ancestors discovered through empirical use. Here is how you can enjoy cannabis responsibly today with useful tips.
Alternatives to smoking
Smoking is the most harmful way of consuming cannabis and other products. Healthier alternatives include Delta 8 edibles, CBD oils, or skin patches. Smoking is the most effective way of getting the active substances kicking in regarding speed of action. However, you also inhale a lot of nasty substances that come from burning the plant. Edibles are much safer than smoking and the mechanism of action suits a lot of people.
When you ingest an edible with active cannabidiols, your body absorbs it at a constant rate. When you smoke something, you get a peak from it in your bloodstream and it goes away. Ingesting an edible will prolong the effects in a much safer manner with no unwanted chemicals. CBD oils are also a great way of enjoying cannabis if you want to infuse something with CBD on the go. Skin patches are pretty similar to edibles except you just experience the effects without anything else.
Talking to a professional
Everyone is unique and thus has their own unique way of enjoying cannabis products. Some people prefer products with more delta 8 while others prefer delta 9 or just CBD. This is because each and every one of us has a unique body with a unique set of cannabinoid receptors spread through our bodies. In order to get the most out of these compounds, you should speak to your doctor who can help you choose wisely.
You may have some unique restrictions which make a certain method of consumption more desirable. You will need to experiment a bit to find the best method of consumption for yourself, but not alone. You should always talk to someone, at least someone close to you, before you take something new. Keep a detailed track of everything you are feeling and you will find what suits your unique body the best.
The right dosage
With every active compound, even water, and oxygen, you need to hit the right dosage. If you take too much water, you could die, there are known cases of water overdose. In the same way, you need to know what is the optimal dosage of cannabis products for you.
It is always better to start with smaller dosages and test the higher dosages later. It is better to experience a lack of effects rather than a hyper-reaction to cannabis. You will not die if you expose yourself too much, but the sensations will not be pleasant.
Take a few days off
Sometimes, you need to feel what it’s like without something in order to appreciate it fully. This means taking some days off cannabis products so you can enjoy them more later. Cannabis products are not addictive, but they can still cause a serious craving. It is important to enjoy these products in moderation if you want their full benefits. Unless you are using them for medicinal purposes, you should always take a few days off cannabis products.
It is very important to utilize these tips and get the most out of this wonderful plant. Everything beautiful in this world requires you to handle it with caution and knowledge. True beauty in this world does not fall from the sky, it requires you to be tedious and work for it. Cannabis is not a miracle plant and it does not work like magic.
However, it is a splendid plant that can help you out with many things if you use it correctly. A knife can be used to make a delicious meal and make someone happy along the way. However, it can also be used for stabbing and hurting others, it is up to us to use it properly. The same can be said for cannabis, except the side effects are not the same but you still want to be responsible.
