Inhaling Cannabis products is the fastest method to get cannabinoids into your body. There are different ways to inhale Cannabis. You can smoke flower, use a vaporizer, or smoke CBD concentrates with a special rig or concentrate vape pen. Concentrates are basically just CBD (or another compound such as THC) in its purest, and most potent form. They come in forms such as shatter, crumble, wax, or oil. They usually come in a CBD isolate form, or a full spectrum form containing 0.3% THC.
They can also contain terpenes of a particular strain to give off its aromatic properties. They contain a lot more CBD than flower or other vaping products, and they tend to be very cost-effective. For people suffering from severe pain, anxiety, panic attacks, etc. who need quick relief of their symptoms, CBD concentrates can be an easy solution. Since they are so potent, e.g.: Extract Labs shatter is 1000mg per gram, and so fast-acting, they can relieve pain or anxiety much faster than taking an edible, and they will also last longer smoking flower.
In addition to the potency, concentrates also offer an extra level of discretion that
flower or other vaping products cannot offer. Using concentrates in a vape pen allow for patients to take CBD doses throughout the day to relieve pain without the smell of marijuana. It also minimizes risk associated with carrying Cannabis products, especially flower, since it looks and smells just like marijuana.
Depending on the level of pain or condition a patient is experiencing, a very high dose of CBD
may be needed. For example, patients suffering from certain cancers, seizures, extreme anxiety, MDD, Crohn’s disease, or opiate withdrawals may not respond to lower doses of CBD. Depending on personal preference, smoking concentrates will allow patients to feel quick pain relief, aid in nausea relief, and promote relaxation and sleep, all without spending a large amount of money.
