Smoking medical marijuana is a great way to relieve pain and other symptoms associated with various medical conditions. However, before you start smoking, there are a few things you will need to have on hand. In this post, we will discuss the different items you will need to make your smoking experience more enjoyable.
1. Get Yourself A Grinder
The first item you will need is a grinder, or as some people call it, a weed cruncher. It is very important that you invest in a great grinder before you start taking medical marijuana. Grinders are typically made out of wood, metal, or plastic. They come with two pieces which you place your medical marijuana in and then twist it around to break your weed down. This will help you get a better high since the smaller pieces of weed burn more quickly and evenly than large pieces. A grinder not only breaks down your weed into smaller pieces, but also ensures that the weed doesn’t get stuck in your pipe or bong.
2. Find The Right Pipe Or Bong
The next thing you will need is a pipe or bong. You can choose to use either one and both will work for smoking your weed. Pipes are smaller than bongs, and they usually carry more flavor, which some people prefer. They are both affordable and easily available in the majority of head shops. You will want to use a pipe or bong that can hold at least one-fifth of an ounce for the best results. The type of pipe or bong you use will play a role in determining how smooth your smoking experience is going to be. Your choice of either a glass pipe or bong will depend on how much you want to spend and where you intend to smoke. For example, a glass water pipe may be the best option if you want to enjoy your weed in a group setting. On the other hand, a smaller glass pipe will allow you to have more privacy when smoking. Glass is also much easier to clean than other materials.
3. Get Rolling Papers
If smoking from a bong, or pipe is not your preference, you can always roll your own joints. An important item to have when you start smoking your medical marijuana is rolling papers. These papers are made from a thin type of wood pulp, and they are then rolled into a cone shape. Rolling papers are typically used to make cigarettes, but they can also be used to roll weed in for smoking purposes. You might find that it is difficult to roll your weed in the beginning, but once you get used to it, you will be able to do it without any problems. Rolling papers are very cheap and can be found in most head shops or convenience stores.
4. Get Yourself Vape Pens
If you are looking for a way to ease yourself into smoking medical marijuana, then vape pens may be the way to go. There are disposable and reusable vape pens. Before you start smoking your weed, you will want to put it in an e-liquid cartridge. The cartridge will screw into the bottom of the vape pen. Once you turn on your vape pen, it will heat up the e-liquid, which will in turn make the weed release its aromas. You can then take a puff from your vape pen. Many people who want to smoke weed on the go, prefer using vape pens over joints.
5. You’ll Need A Medical Marijuana Card
In order to legally purchase medical marijuana, you will need a valid medical marijuana card. In most states, the application process is very simple, and it won’t take you long to get your card. The application is typically free, but some states charge a nominal fee for the processing of the application. A valid medical marijuana card will allow you to purchase medical marijuana at your local dispensary.
6. Visit Your Local Dispensary
When you have your medical marijuana card, this is when the fun begins. You will get to visit dispensaries and choose from a variety of medical marijuana options. Dispensaries have a wide range of products to choose from, with some dispensaries even carrying edibles.
Now that you know what you will need before smoking medical marijuana, it is time to get started. Make sure you have all of the necessary items, and then visit your local dispensary for some good old-fashioned shopping. Be sure to ask the staff at the dispensary for advice on which products are best suited for your needs.
