Methods of Consumption

Topicals

Cannabis topicals include oils, lotions, balms, and salves infused with active cannabinoids. They are applied directly to your skin and, although some topicals may contain THC, the effects are typically non-psychoactive as the dermal skin layer absorbs most, if not all the compounds before any reach the bloodstream.

Benefits:

  • Localized effect
  • Non-psychoactive

Transdermals

Transdermals are products that penetrate all of the epidermal layers of skin to enter the bloodstream and provide both a regional and full-body effect. Transdermals are absorbed through the skin or mucosal membranes. As the layers of skin absorb medication from transdermal patches, creams or gels, the cannabinoids enter the bloodstream after fully passing through the dermal layer as opposed to standard  topicals which tend to be regional only.

Benefits:

  • Localized + systemic effect
  • Low to no psychoactivity

Edibles

Cannabis-infused edibles are a discreet and convenient way to feel the full-body psychoactive and therapeutic effects of cannabis. Edibles historically were made by infused butter or oil with cannabis and then adding it various types of foods types. The increased popularity of this method of consumption spurred a creative explosion, not only in the types of products (including a variety of tasty brownies, drinks, cookies, powders, and candies) but also the different methods of preparing the compounds.

Benefits:

  • Strong, extended effect
  • Discrete – no smoking required
