4 Ways to Enjoy the Benefits of Cannabis Without Smoking

The beauty of cannabis is that it is a deeply personal journey. From why you consume to what you consume, each step of the way is marked by a distinct choice that helps you create your own, personal retreat through plant medicine.

No matter your approach, the benefits of cannabis are undeniable. Whether you hold a medical card or simply indulge in the power of it recreationally, there are countless ways to enjoy cannabis products.

As popular as it is, not everyone likes to smoke, and those with compromised lung health may not even have the option. At The Retreat, an adult-use cannabis dispensary in New Jersey, we want you to have what you need to define well-being your way.

Here are four suggestions for a smoke-free cannabis experience:

Bake it.

Baking your cannabis into treats or purchasing edibles is a delicious way to experience the benefits of cannabis without smoking.

If you’re a culinary aficionado, you can infuse virtually anything that calls for butter or oil. Think classics like brownies and chocolate chip cookies, or get creative with it and go for an infused tiramisu or even baked pasta!

Cannabis oils or infused butter are the best options for you if you like to Iron Chef it out. However, dispensaries in New Jersey (like us!) have a wide selection of pre-made edibles that range from gummies and chocolate to other infused ingredients.

If you’re consuming your cannabis as an edible treat, start with a low dose and be patient. Because of the digestive process, edibles take much longer to settle in and can have a more potent effect.

Drink it.

The cannabis industry has evolved significantly in the past few years. As a consumer, this means you have exciting options to curate your retreat experience. One of those options includes cannabis beverages.

Infused beverages are catching attention because they are great for both existing and experience cannabis consumers as well as those who are new to the world. Brands like CANN and Levia have introduced fun flavors in the form of infused seltzers for you to enjoy, such as Blood Orange, Raspberry Lime, and more.

Not only do cannabis beverages allow for an elevated experience that you can share with others, but they also allow you to pace your high. This means you don’t have to play the edibles waiting game and still enjoy a smoke-free experience.

Drop it.

Cannabis tinctures are another great way to enjoy the benefits of cannabis without smoking. Catch a few drops of your cannabis tincture of choice under your tongue or in your drinks and experience a variety of flavors, potencies, and profiles to align with your preferences or personal needs.

Tinctures enter the bloodstream immediately, gifting you fast-acting effects and better dose control compared to other cannabis product options.

Top it.

Of course, you don’t have to consume cannabis to experience its wonderful benefits. Topicals are cannabis-infused lotions or balms that can be applied directly to the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation.

In other words, you can enjoy the therapeutic effects of cannabis without any of the psychoactive effects, which is great for athletes, people who operate machinery, and more.
