When it comes to cannabis I am a fan, i care about all forms of the marijuana plant, and a topical is a really good pick if you have sore muscles or concerns with chronic pain.
It is applied directly to the skin & creates a cooling effect, think of it as a more powerful icy hot or heating pad.
I care about smoking a cannabis flower because the process of rolling a joint is just so soothing to me. I save a little currency not needing to buy pre-rolls at the store too! Cannabis oil is when I want to be a little lazy! You just vape it & can have instant weed relief. It heats the oil to where the awful parts of the cannabis plant are no longer getting into your lungs either. It is a safer & cleaner approach. You have to care about edibles though, for me I care about their diversity. You don’t even need to stick with the respected pot brownie approach. There are other CBD & THC infused baked goods. You can get pies, cookies & cakes. There are THC gummies & CBD capsules that are easier to bring on the go. There are mouth sprays, gums, mints & tough candies. I am a fan number one of the cannabutters & cannabis cooking oils though. It is just so easy & fun to splash cannabis in a dish that I am making. I can melt the butter & make a creamy sauce with it. I also can use cannabis oil when I am frying meat, vegetables or making homemade burgers. It is so easy to introduce a little weed & it always makes the dish taste better.
