You might be wondering what is the best cannabis consumption method for a beginner. Because cannabis provides unique effects for the individual, the answer is different for each person. You might prefer the old-school benefits of smoking flower, the convenience of vaping, or clear and precision dosing of tinctures, edibles, or capsules. Beverages offer a lower-dose option that is wonderfully simple, discreet, and portable.

Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system (ECS)? It is found nearly everywhere in the human body. The ECS is made up of receptors that regulate nervous, cardiovascular, and immune system functions. This biological system works to balance key bodily functions, such as sleep, memory, mood, pain, temperature, and more, working to achieve homeostasis. The body’s receptors respond to the active chemical compounds of cannabis.
Cannabis stimulates CB1 and CB2 receptors and can affect the functions of the ECS. There are over 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, and each one interacts with those receptors in unique ways to cause different effects on the mind and body. THC and CBD are the most well-known cannabinoids, but over 100 have been identified. While similar in structure and therapeutic value, THC causes psychoactive effects and CBD does not.
