As more countries and states start to make marijuana and cannabis legal, more people, especially teens and young adults, are becoming more curious about what’s available to them and how they can use the products. A lot of people are trying out vaping these days; they usually use CBD or THC oil. Keep in mind that THC oil and CBD oil affect the body in different ways; THC works like CBD by impacting the neurotransmitters in the brain, but THC is the main psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana, and it’s this substance that will make you feel high. Both THC and CBD are the main cannabinoids compounds found in cannabis. They are both found in hemp and marijuana, but THC is more common in marijuana than in the cannabis plant.
Smoking cannabis flowers to get THC is still the most popular way of consumption among most cannabis users. However, THC has provided a new way to enjoy cannabis without having to smoke.
What Is THC Oil?
THC oil is a newfound way to enjoy cannabis. THC oil is made using different extraction methods to pull out THC and other cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. The cannabinoids are suspended in a carrier oil such as hemp oil or MCT. At the end of the process, you get a fluid formula that can be used in different ways.
THC is the most psychoactive compound found in cannabis, and it is intoxicating. THC oil is more potent than regular cannabis flower, but it depends on how the oil is made and used. For instance, if you get a THC oil that has a higher milligram level, it is possible that a few drops or a few hits with a vaporizer will create a buzz. But with smoking cannabis, you’ll have to smoke a whole lot more to get the same effect because you would get less THC with every puff.
Knowing this, use caution when using THC oil, use only a small amount and monitor how it affects you and dose as needed. It is also important that you know the THC potency of the oil you want to use.
How To Smoke THC Oil
Most THC oils are formulated to be used with vape pens or vape carts. But there are some suitable for using dab rigs, especially those with thicker consistency such as RSO oil because they are easier to drip onto the heated nail in a controlled manner.
Dabbing versus vaping is an ever raging debate between experienced cannabis oil users. Vaping offers you convenience while using your oil; you can easily pick up a cartridge or prefilled pen and enjoy. On the other hand, dabbing with a rig offers you more control; you can drip the exact amount you want to use on your heated nails. Some people prefer dabbing because they claim that the effects are better.
How To Use A Vape Pen For THC Oil
These days most vape pens are used to smoke cannabis oil such as THC and CBD. They are also known as weed pens, and they are usually compatible with 510 threaded oil arts. To start smoking, remove the rubber seal located at the bottom of your oil cartridge and connect it to the battery. Ensure your vape pen is charged and turned on, especially if it’s the push-button option. Make sure you do not press the button until you start inhaling, or it will burn your lips. Start by taking a small puff, especially if you’re new to vaping. The effect might seem subtle at first, but it slowly becomes intense. If your vape pen comes with multiple voltage settings, start by using the lowest setting to avoid dry hits.
Ingesting THC Oil
THC oil can be ingested, but most people prefer to use sublingual dosing, which is placing drops of the oil under the tongue; it is preferred because the effects of the oil start to kick in 15 to 30 minutes after application which is a bit longer than with inhalation. However, if you simply swallow the oil like any cannabis edible, you won’t feel the full effects for 30 to 60 minutes.
Cooking With THC Oil
Using THC to make new combinations in the kitchen is always fun, but make sure you use the right dose. Consider the number of servings you want from a dish and use that to measure how much THC oil you’ll use in the recipe. For instance, if you are making a batch of brownies, you’ll most likely have ten servings from that batch, now consider the amount of THC you want in each brownie, such as 10mg of THC. With that in mind, you’ll need 100mg of THC for the full recipe.
THC oil can be an excellent alternative for enjoying cannabis if it’s used responsibly. Oils are more potent and discreet and come with diverse ways of usage. To ensure that you enjoy the use of any THC oil, make sure you buy one that fits your consumption method. For instance, if you intend to vape, make sure you get one that is designed for vaping and not one used as a tincture. Also, buy THC oils from high-quality manufacturers that provide you with the exact potency level on the bottle.
