Traditionally, marijuana is consumed by smoking a roll but these days, medical marijuana is consumed in a variety of ways and the list of ways to do it keeps getting longer.

Now the question is, what’s the best way to consume pot? Before we get to the nitty-gritty, you need to ask yourself a few questions: do you prefer to consuming pot discreetly or do you prefer smoking it whenever you feel like it? Would you like to take your marijuana on the go or you’d rather prep the pot first prior to consuming it?

Medical marijuana comes in different forms. They come in dried, edible, or oil form. How you take your pot will depend on your lifestyle and preference. For instance, if you’re always on the go, then it’s quite impractical to prep the weed while traveling. On the other hand, if you stick to a little ritual before consuming medical marijuana, smoking it might not be the best choice for you. If you’re currently not a medical marijuana patient, you can check out to see if you qualify. Let’s take a look at the most popular ways of consuming medical marijuana:


Perhaps the most popular method of consuming pot, smoking weed is fast, easy and practical for recreational users. In addition, smoking is perfect for delivering instant relief. The active ingredients of pot are delivered from the lungs to the bloodstream much more quickly.

However, it’s not the best way to do it if you’re smoking weed for your health. Smoking weed does damage the lungs and cause respiratory inflammation. If you’d rather preserve the health benefits of weed, smoking isn’t ideal.


Vaping is similar to smoking but instead of burning the weed, its essence is turned into water vapor. A vaporizer is used to heat up the cannabis oil or “juice”. You push a button and inhale the water vapor through a mouthpiece, similar to smoking a joint. Because there’s no direct burning involved, you’re not inhaling marijuana smoke. In addition, the curative chemicals of pot is not destroyed by the heat, which means you’re maximizing the full health benefits of medical marijuana.

Finally, vaping is considered as one of the most effective smoking cessation tools. This is something to keep in mind if you’re trying to quit tobacco smoking.


This is no doubt the most delicious way of consuming medical marijuana, adding pot to your favorite sweet treats! Cannabis is plant-based, it can be incorporated to a variety of prepared dishes, and sweet treats safely. From pot brownies to mac n’ cheese, the possibilities are endless! You can also add pot to your granola bar recipe or spice up plain popcorn, it’s your choice.

Consuming edibles is not only healthier than say, smoking weed, the effects of weed’s active ingredients are longer lasting too. What’s more, edibles offer a more discreet way of consuming weed.


A tincture is a solution made from concentrated marijuana and alcohol. You can consume the marijuana tincture by adding a few drops to your food or drink. You can also take several drops under the tongue or apply directly on the skin. Just like edibles, medical marijuana tincture is also a discreet way of consuming pot. This method is best for sick kids who depend on medical marijuana for pain management.
