Do you love cannabis? If you answered yes, then this article is for you. If you love cannabis as much as I do, that means you could sit around smoking it, eating it, slathering yourself in it, and talking about it all day. Not everybody that loves cannabis, though, knows a lot about it. Some people love the stuff and are relatively new to the culture and still have lots of questions. A common question newcomers have about cannabis is what can you do with it besides smoke it. This is a question that comes with all kinds of answers. As I mentioned, besides smoking, you can eat it and rub it on you. But that’s not all. Let’s take a look at what you can do with cannabis besides smoke it.
Besides Smoking, You Can Eat Cannabis
Besides smoking cannabis, you guessed it; you can eat it. You can eat it raw as in picking fresh leaves or buds and making a salad if you wish. You’ll find that you won’t get a buzz doing this as fresh cannabis has THCA and is also rich in THCV. If you know how to infuse cannabis into your favorite recipes, you can also eat it in the form of one of many different edible treats such as brownies, cookies, chocolates, hard candy, gummies, or just about any other food.
You Can Also Drink Cannabis
We know that you can smoke cannabis, and we know that you can eat it, but did you know you can drink it too? I’m not talking about the old drink a shot where you shotgun a hit into a small glass with ice in the bottom and then slam it back like it’s a frosty beverage. I’m talking about actually drinking cannabis in the form of cannabis-infused coffee, fruit juice, tea, soda, or other beverages. Cannabis can be infused into just about any variety of liquid out there. This means not only can you smoke it and eat it, but you can drink it too.
You Can Even Apply Cannabis on Your Skin
Now we know you can smoke it, eat it, and drink it, but did you know that you can rub it all over you? That’s right, you can slather yourself in it, and it can be good for you too. Using cannabis topicals won’t necessarily let you achieve the euphoria that many people are looking for, but it could help you achieve a much more desired effect. The desired effect like relief from arthritis or skin conditions that cause discomfort. Applying cannabis to your skin is also a great way to protect your skin, help heal wounds and eczema, and even reduce swelling and inflammation in targeted areas.

You Can Grow Cannabis
Quite possibly, one of the best things you can do with cannabis besides smoking it, eating it, drinking it, and rubbing it all over you, is to grow it. Growing cannabis is rewarding in many different ways. Raising a cannabis plant from seed to maturity is done in a relatively short amount of time, averaging around four months or less. When you grow your own cannabis, you not only experience the fulfillment that comes from watching a plant grow through the different cycles to achieve maturity, but you get to reap the fruits of your labor in the end, being rewarded with sweet cannabis.
You Can Make Medicine With Cannabis
Besides smoking it, eating it, drinking it, and rubbing yourself down with it, and growing it, you can use it to make many different types of medicine. You can learn about decarboxylating cannabis at home and infusing it with MCT oil or making tinctures using PGA aka pure grain alcohol. These tinctures and activated oils can be added to a wide variety of different products ranging from capsules, lotions, soaps, and creams all the way to your favorite foods to be used however you choose.
Ways To Use Cannabis You Might Not Have Thought About
Last but not least, a way you can utilize the plant that so many of us love is by making art with it. Cannabis leaves can make for great art pieces. The stems and stalks produce fiber that can be used to make all kinds of things. I even took a small cannabis plant and pulled everything off of it, letting the stem structure dry up. Once it was dried, I wrapped crystals all around it, and some led copper wire to make an illuminated cannabis stem crystal tree. Consuming cannabis helps with creativity too!
Now you’re equipped with a little more knowledge about ways to use the plant that so many people love. The question now is, what will you do with it?
