Weed Wise: Non-Smokables to Keep Those Lungs Healthy
Let’s face it: Even in the best of times, it’s a good idea to give your lungs a break from time to time. And though we hate to say it, it’s doubly true in the midst of the COVID-19 / coronavirus pandemic. You don’t want to give a respiratory virus any excuse to settle into tired and harshed-out lungs.
Fortunately, there are tons of ways to get high without smoking, from flavorful extracts to potent tinctures to all kinds of yummy edibles. So next time you come by the dispensary—we’re offering easy curbside pickup to help maintain those important social-distancing regulations—why don’t you try something new? You just may be blown away by all the ways to get high without smoking!
Get High Without Smoking: Tinctures
Like extracts, these infusions offer a potent dose of cannabis in a discreet, easy-to-use format. Suspended in either neutral alcohol or a glycerine base, tinctures can either be added to your favorite foods or drinks, or just dropped under the tongue for a faster action (typically 15 to 45 minutes). They’re great for making fun cannabis-infused cocktails, fruit smoothies, desserts, or literally any other kind of food you can imagine! Here are a couple of our current favorites.
Stay Lifted Tincture, Yummi Karma
A unique and fun confection, this tincture combines a lot of things we love: Potent THC, guarana and green tea for a natural uplift, a splash of bright orange cream for flavor, and vitamin B-12 for a metabolic boost. It’s a great way to gently supercharge your day with creativity and inspiration.
THC Rich Tincture, Proof
Formulated for strong psychoactivity, this tincture delivers the goods with a soft, smooth and delicious intake. You should feel a well-balanced, euphoric high underscored with a relaxing body buzz. If you can’t tell, we’re big fans!
Get High Without Smoking: Edibles
These cannabis-infused treats probably don’t need any introduction. From gummies to mints to coffees to cookies and more, one thing is clear: The only limit to what you can infuse with cannabis is your imagination! As with extracts, the effects typically take up to 2 hours to come on. Here are some of our favorites.
Brown Butter Sage Marshmallow, Mellows
Combining the nutty toastiness of brown butter with a surprising touch of sage, these marshmallows are a unique and unforgettable treat. Crafted for flavor over potency, they deliver a very manageable 5mg of THC extracted from Red Congolese hash. They’re so good that the only real problem is restricting yourself to just one (or possibly two!).
Red Velvet Cookies, Dr. Norms
Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside, these vibrant red treats deliver a healthy 10mg of THC per cookie. The white chocolate chips don’t hurt, either! Another winner from one of our favorite “elevated” bakeshops.
Get High Without Smoking: Extracts
These flavorful and potent cannabis concentrates are similar to those you’d find in a vape pen. But they’re just as good—or better—when they’re swallowed! They take longer to come on (be forewarned, sometimes it’s as long as 2 hours) but because the extracts are metabolized through the stomach and liver, the effect is more powerful and longer lasting, sometimes up to six hours! Pro tip: Put a drop under your tongue for a faster high. Here’s one of our favorites.
Mango Brulee, Sessions Supply Co.
This powerful indica-dominant hybrid is great for relaxing the heck out. And the creamy and sweet mango flavor lingers on, and on, and on….
