Can't Smoke Your Medical Marijuana? Options For The Non-Smoker

by For Content

Medical and medicinal marijuana is often sold in very small batches so that the person using it does not get arrested "for carrying." Even with a drug card for medicinal marijuana, restrictions have to be followed, and that includes how the marijuana is ingested. If you are a non-smoker, then you may have a very big conundrum because most medicinal forms of this drug have to be smoked. However, there are a few options available to you that can help you get the medicine you need without becoming a smoker.

CBD Pens

With all of the controversy surrounding cigarettes and smoking, vaping has become a very popular way to "smoke" in public and not affect everyone else's breathable air. As such, CBD pens, or cannabis vaping pens, have been developed for medicinal use. Cannabis vaping pens are the perfect solution for anyone who does not smoke but is prescribed medical marijuana. The cannabis oil is carefully drawn and measured into prescribed portions that fit into a vaping pen. Your "medicine" is delivered in much the same way as an inhaler or nebulizer would deliver it.

Pre-made Cannabis Chocolate

If you visit Denver, Colorado, where medical marijuana is now legal, there are cannabis shops there that sell small chocolate bars made with cannabis oil. The bars are about one inch by three inches by a couple millimeters, and you only need a sixth to a half of a bar for medicinal purposes. These bars are limited to a few per customer to restrict excess use and abuse, but the effects are the same as vaping or smoking the pods. The taste is similar to mixing thyme and oregano and then dipping the leaves of these herbs in chocolate. It does leave a slightly unpleasant aftertaste, but it is another option to smoking the marijuana or vaping the oil.

Cannabis Oil Brownies

"Magic" brownies, so named for their "magical" properties of relieving pain and providing an elevated mood from the cannabis oil in them, are also sold in many cannabis shops. The taste is better than the chocolate bars by comparison, since the cannabis oil is masked by all of the ingredients in the brownie. Some people report a reduced effect in the medicinal values, but that may just be a perception on their part or it may be because the oil is baked in rather than poured in and stirred prior to pouring it into a pan. Still, if you cannot smoke your prescribed cannabis, eating it in the form of a gooey chocolate brownie is not a bad alternative.
