You’ve heard a lot about the health and wellness benefits of cannabis. Even your doctor is on board, yet you haven’t taken that next step. After all, what would your neighbors think if your house smelled like a Bob Marley concert? Maybe you’re concerned about your boss or co-workers or want to be able to get relief from your symptoms while out in public. Whatever the reason may be, you’ll be happy to know that it’s possible to use medical cannabis discretely. Below are a few ways to do just that.
- Use a cannabis tincture — A tincture is an alcohol-based extract of cannabis which allows for discrete consumption. A common way to use a cannabis tincture is to take the dose sublingually (under the tongue). Generally speaking, you’ll spread the tincture around the inside of your mouth with your tongue, hold it for about 30 seconds, and then spit it out.
- Use a topical cannabis product — Did you know you can also apply cannabis topically? Cannabis topicals come in several forms such as lotion, balms, and salves. Consumption is a simple matter of applying the product to your skin and rubbing it in. The cannabis is absorbed through your skin. This method allows for liberal application of the product as the skin has a low absorption rate of cannabinoids. It is commonly used to treat pain and inflammation locally. Topical cannabis does not produce a high, making it a great choice for any number of situations.
- Use cannabis oil — Cannabis oil can be used to create edibles or placed into capsules and taken just like you would take any other type of pill. Many people mix the appropriate amount of cannabis oil with regular oil or butter and then use it to bake goodies. Of course, you’ll want to use care to keep your edibles securely away from others, especially children, who may unintentionally ingest your goodies.
It’s no longer necessary to light up in order to enjoy the health and wellness benefits of cannabis.
