5 Creative Ways to Ingest Marijuana

Despite media portrayal, there are many ways to ingest marijuana besides smoking. In 2022, you can eat, drink, and even put marijuana on your skin. If you’re looking to shake up your classic smoking routine, here are five creative ways to enjoy your marijuana:

 

1. Foods

Edibles are one of the most popular methods of ingesting marijuana. Edibles take a long-winded metabolic journey through your digestive system, so they take some time to hit, but the resulting effects are more intense and last longer than smoking.

2. Lotions

Did you know that we have cannabinoid receptors in our skin? While traditional lotions sometimes contain irritating chemicals, marijuana-infused lotions have gentle, calming, and therapeutic benefits. Although they absorb into your skin, these lotions also never make it into your bloodstream, so you don’t experience any head high.

3. Suppositories

At Mile High Dispensary, we aren’t here to judge how you choose to ingest your marijuana, we’re just happy to share our love of cannabis with others. Suppositories quickly absorb into your bloodstream and bypass the long wait times associated with liver digestion. People often use these to target menstrual cramps, lower back pain, and abdominal discomfort.

4. Beverages

Yes, you can even drink marijuana! Just like edibles, marijuana-infused beverages are an easy way to ingest your marijuana. Casually sipping on one of these beverages throughout the day gives you full control of your dosage, and it tastes delicious!

5. Dabs

When you’re looking for a truly powerful punch, dabs are your go-to method. A dab is a marijuana extract in the form of oil that is highly concentrated with THC. Using a dab rig or a dab pen, the heated oil can be inhaled into the lungs where it provides almost immediate effects.

If you’re looking to try one of these methods, check out our full list of accessories to get started.
