How to Get High without Smoking Weed from Denver Weed Shops


May 1, 2020

When you think of getting high, you likely immediately think of lighting up a joint, blunt, bong, or pipe. And you’d be right. Those are certainly the most common and most popular methods of enjoying cannabis. But with COVID-19 spreading rampantly across the country, many people are starting to worry about smoking increasing their risk of more severe complications. While the jury is still out on the effects smoking cannabis has on lung health as it relates to the coronavirus, it never hurts to be cautious. If you’re worried about smoking, but still want to enjoy your high from different dispensaries in Denver, don’t panic. Try one of these great alternatives. 

Mix Up Your Own Edibles
If you’ve already got some great flower in your home, don’t let it get stale. Instead, use it to create your own delicious edibles. There are tons of recipes out there ranging from sweet to savory and most are relatively simple to make. Our favorite recipes start with a simple cannabis flour that you can make yourself right at home. Use the flour to make your favorite baked goods from scratch. You’ll impress your friends and get to enjoy the delicious scents coming from the kitchen while you’re baking.

Get Into Cannabis Candies
When summer is in full swing and the temps start to rise, you might not want to fire up the oven. That doesn’t mean you can’t get high without smoking, though. Instead of baking your own treats, pick up some delicious cannabis-infused hard candies from your favorite dispensary. These candies pack a serious punch and will get you pleasantly high without forcing you to light up. Best of all, you control the dose completely. Micro-dose with a single candy or eat the suggested dosage amount for a long-lasting high that’s sure to relax you.

Crack Open a Can of Cannabis Soda
If you struggle to deal with cotton mouth after enjoying a large bowl, you know that staying hydrated is key. Why not kill two birds with one stone by cracking open a cold cannabis-infused beverage? There are hundreds of options out there with flavors ranging from traditional cola to tropical fruity concoctions that your childhood taste buds only dreamed of finding. Most are meant to be single-serve cans meaning you’ll get the full dose of cannabis after you finish the entire beverage. This gives you a chance to slake your thirst while letting your high build a bit more slowly. It’s ideal for newer users and those who don’t enjoy the feeling of being super high shortly after smoking. 

There Are Options
Just because you don’t want to smoke doesn’t mean you can’t get high and enjoy the experience at the same time. Think outside the box and try a new edible, drinkable, or tincture for yourself. You might just find a new standby to get you through when your normal stash of flower runs out. Stop by one of our convenient locations today and check out our full range of edibles.
