Cannabis is consumed in many forms

Smoking, the cannabis plant can be smoked in different forms so of which are:

Flower

Flower, typically consumed by means of smoking or vaporizing using rolling papers, wraps, pipes, or vaporizers. This is  the dried and cured flower of the female cannabis plant. This part of the plant contains the highest concentration of all the compounds it contains.

When consumed through the means of smoking or vaporizing the onset of the affects are

quicker when compared to an edible or sublingual.

Kief

Kief is a term used to describe the collection of the tips of the trichomes that
fall off when the flower is handled and ground. This collection is packed with
terpenes and cannabinoids, which makes kief very potent. It is usually
consumed through the same methods as flower and used to enhance the
desired effects.

Kief is also the raw material to produce hashish,

wax and other concentrates.

Hashish

Hashish or hash, is cannabis resin that is rich in the marijuana plant's psychoactive cannabinoid THC. The trichomes are compressed to make hash.Hash is typically smoked using a pipe, bong and at times added to a joint or blunt.

Edibles

For those that prefer not to smoke or are need a stronger effect to alleviate certain ailments may choose edibles as a form of ingestion. Edibles are typically made with oils, hash, or shatter and are infused foods such as brownies, cookies, beverages, and many others. This form of consumption may take 45 minutes to 2 hours before the effects are felt, but once felt the effects last anywhere between 4-8 hours. Edibles can also be infused with non-psychoactive oils such as CBD oil.

Vaporizing is another form of consumption that can be used to smoke not only the flower and its kief, but cannabis oil as well. It is the purest form of inhaling cannabis and easiest on the lungs.

Cannabis oil is extracted from the cannabis plant and contains the plants cannabinoids and terpenes. It is usually consumed through electronic vaporizers.

Concentrates such as, live resin, which is made by applying heat and compressing the flower between wax paper until the oils ooze out of the flower, Shatter, which is made mixing the flower with different elements to extract the oils and trichomes from the flower. Both of these form are highly concentrated and extremely potent typically reserved for seasoned smokers or patients looking for stronger effects.

Other forms of consumption include transdermal, which are great for immediate
relief of muscular pain and are absorbed through the skin and administered through
creams, patches, lotions and balms, sublingual, administered through tinctures and
oral strips are good for those who don’t enjoy smoking but still seek the therapeutic
and medical effects of the plant, and suppositories, typically used by women to
alleviate the effects of PMS and by detrimentally ill patients who cannot consume it

any other way.
