We’re always talking about the many things consumers should know or learn, but today we’re going to focus on having the most fun with cannabis. So, if you’re looking for some new ideas to try, this is an excellent place to start.

1. Rolling

Rolling is a skill that is perfected with time and patience, but if you’ve never tried it, then you won’t have an appreciation for the craft. Plus, it never hurts to know how. Sure, we’ve got access to all kinds of pre-rolls these days, still, if you ever find yourself in a pinch, knowing how could be the difference between an elevated sesh and complete disappointment.

2. Mixing

Pure cannabis is a beautiful thing that should be cherished, but most don’t realize how many benefits can come from stretching that stash with a heart helping oh herbs, tobacco, or cannabis concentrates. Though powerful, moon rockets and similarly mixed joints can truly enhance a cannabis experience in a way that words simply cannot describe.

3. Dabbing

Knowing how to roll can make for fun activities and experiments. However, dabbing can take the whole experience to new heights by offering a powerful kick through a wide range of cannabis concentrates you might not otherwise test. It tastes and smells amazing, and the effects come on just as fast as smoking, so if you haven't tried it, now is a good time to climb this mountain.

4. Hotboxing

Hotboxing can be difficult to do if you’ve got lung troubles with regular smoking, but if you’re looking to push your limits to the max, there’s no better way to find them than by filling a room full of smoke. The science behind this experiment is sketchy. Still, those who’ve tried it say there’s no other way to guarantee a complete body buzz that tingles from head to toe.

5. Vaping

Vaping is once again becoming popular now that we’re past the mysterious health crisis that impacted thousands of cannabis consumers, believed to be caused by certain additives that are no longer allowed in vape products, and those concerns can be voided entirely by skipping the watered-down solutions for pure vaping power of a volcano or concentrate pen. It goes down smoother than smoking, with all of the same benefits plus a boost in potency, so if you’re up for the challenge, it could be an eye-opening journey.

6. Making cannabis concentrates

Final Bell

Most of us pay a small fortune for the luxury that is cannabis concentrates, but did you know it’s really easy to make at least some of them at home? Take hash, for example, which can be made with nothing more than a bit of kief, a few drops of water, and a small sheet of aluminum foil combined with pressure. It’s a fun experience and one you can learn from.

7. Cannabinoid drinks

Smoking is fantastic – it hits hard, does the job instantly, and tastes great. However, there are other more amazing ways to consume cannabis like through drinks. Since the cannabinoids are absorbed in a different way, the effects tend to be more potent and longer-lasting, which is quite the trip if you’ve never had the chance to try it.

8. Topicals

Everyone, including those who prefer to toke, may benefit from introducing cannabinoid topicals to their daily routines because it can help with all kinds of things, from inflammation to dry skin and pain. Target problem areas and get all of the benefits without the high. You’ll have to see the results for yourself to really believe it, and it’s a worthwhile experience.

9. Edibles

Smoking is still the most popular method of consumption, but some say that’s because alternative options like edibles are so incredibly powerful, and they’re not entirely wrong. Of course, for the first time, it’s best to stick with low-dose options. Still, with intense effects that can last upwards of several hours, a night of relaxation could be made complete with a nibble on the right edible.

10. Smoke tricks

If you’re not a toker, then this one might not be for you, but if you are, it’s a fun way to pass the time, and if you’re successful, it can make for some fun party conversation and great pictures. They take skill, practice, and then precise execution, and since so few can do them, you can stand out in a crowd after mastering them.
