Smoking Medical Cannabis– What to Know

Medical marijuana continues to grow in popularity as more states make moves to legalize it both medically and recreationally. Minnesota is one of the more recent states to legalize medical marijuana.

There are many delivery methods where cannabis is concerned, but the most popular by far is smoking. In this blog, we will tell you everything you need to know about smoking cannabis including its pros and cons.

Cons of Smoking Marijuana

Smoking your medical marijuana produces some harmful chemicals including tar and other carcinogens. Burned marijuana flower also gives off a strong smell that is hard to ignore.

People who smoke flower tend to burn through their stash quicker than those who vape or use other methods because once you burn it, it’s gone. With vaping, for example, you have a whole cartridge and you can take small hits to conserve your wax.

With smoking, there is also not much of a difference with the taste between different strains. With vaping, however, the flavors are more obvious. Most flower looks and smells almost identical to most people.

Pros of Smoking Marijuana

When you smoke marijuana, the effects can normally be felt within minutes or sometimes even seconds. Smoking tends to produce mild to intense effects. When you burn your flower, the cannabinoids are released immediately, which is why the effects work so quickly.

There is not much of an investment required if you decide you want to smoke your medical marijuana. Smoking is also pretty low maintenance. The only thing you really need to worry about is cleaning your pipe, bong, or bowl every so often.

Cultivation is not currently legal in the State of Minnesota, but eventually it will be! Growing your own flower is an amazing way to save money on your medicine. Once cultivation is legalized in Minnesota, make sure to purchase some plants and try your hand at growing your own!
