About to smoke, eat, vape, drink, or absorb cannabis for the first time and not sure what to expect?

 

No matter how old you are, cannabis is a fantastic aid that will help make life and the aging process much simpler for both men and women.

 

Seniors are part of the fastest-growing demographic of cannabis consumers. The growing population of older cannabis users finds great relief in the natural benefits offered by cannabis, whether they choose CBD products or those with THC. It makes sense, as cannabis is a wonderful natural solution for many ailments that afflict the elderly.

 

According to a recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, seniors use marijuana mainly for treating medical conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, depression, and pain. “Surprisingly, we found that nearly three-fifths of cannabis users reported using cannabis for the first time as older adults. These individuals were a unique group compared to those who used cannabis in the past.”

 

“New users were more likely to use cannabis for medical reasons than for recreation. The route of cannabis use also differed with new users more likely to use it topically as a lotion rather than by smoking or ingesting as edibles. Also, they were more likely to inform their doctor about their cannabis use, which reflects that cannabis use is no longer as stigmatized as it was previously,” they added.

 

Aside from that, cannabis use can also help you age gracefully. It can also be part of a holistic wellness regimen that will keep inflammation and disease at bay, or at least slow it down the way it works with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

 

Whether you choose to get high or not, use it as medicine or for recreation, there are some things that you should keep in mind when using cannabis for the first time:

1. Research Your Preferred Consumption Method

There are so many ways you can consume cannabis these days. From smoking to vaping, edibles and more, the choices are endless. Just be sure to stay away from extremely potent cannabis such as concentrates, which should be reserved for young. Seasoned stoners would be fine but is by no means suitable for seniors.

2. Start Slow

Seniors generally have more sensitive bodies, which means that consuming anything with THC or CBD may hit faster and quicker compared to younger consumers. Always start small and go slow during your first few sessions no matter what way you choose to consume. It can be extremely uncomfortable to be higher than expected for a senior who has never consumed cannabis before. So  start with small doses.

3. Prepare Your Environment

When consuming cannabis for the first time, it’s important to set the right environment for your safety.

 

It’s always recommended to do so at home or in the company of a friend or family member, perhaps one that may be knowledgeable or has had experience with cannabis. Heck, this is a good time to give your grandkids a call and ask them if they’re up to trying it with you.

 

Additionally, be sure that you don’t have to drive or operate machinery. It should be in a relaxed time and space when there’s nothing else on your to-do list for the day. Even better if you’re about to go to bed.

4. Drink Water & Hydrate

While cannabis isn’t as dehydrating as alcohol, it can leave you feeling parched. Be sure to have water and sip consistently throughout your session. Water is a good tool for keeping you grounded in case you get too high if you consume THC, and it can help keep the anxiety at bay.

5. Have Some CBD or Peppercorns Nearby

In the event that you do get too high from THC, have some CBD on hand. Anxiety and paranoia can be common among first-time users especially seniors who are already prone to this. CBD soft gels, sublinguals, or edibles would be the perfect antidote to this. It has been known to relieve the paranoia effectively, and it can also come in handy in calming you down if the THC gives you palpitations. Here are 11 tips to help you come down from a potent high.

6. Keep Snacks Handy

Many seniors consume cannabis to enjoy the increase in appetite. Loss of appetite is common among the elderly, but you do need food for nutrition as well as for healing. When consuming cannabis, especially if it is Delta 8 THC, anticipate the increase in appetite by preparing healthy snacks that you can munch on during your session.

7. Talk To Your Doctor

Last but not least, check with your doctor if it’s safe for you to consume cannabis. Your physician should know about all the medications you are taking, and if there may be any potential interactions that can lead to some side effects.

 

CBD as well as THC are known to have interactions with certain medications and may cause their efficiency to wane over time. These include blood thinners, pain medications, anticonvulsants, anti-anxiety medications, sedatives, and others. In some cases, starting cannabis consumption can even replace medications, but this is something that you should discuss with your doctor.

 

It’s also wonderful to have a physician who is knowledgeable about cannabis. These days, many doctors still don’t know much about its use even for seniors, so looking around for one who does is worth the effort. You’ll be able to get accurate medical advice about the best way to use cannabis for your specific needs.

Summary

No matter how old you are, cannabis is a fantastic aid that will help make life and the aging process much simpler for both men and women. Whether your doctor has prescribed it for medical reasons or you simply want to explore the wonders that you have read about (or that your grandkids have been telling you about!). Preparation is key for an unforgettable time instead of one that will leave you feeling like you hadn’t in the first place.

How is Rosin made?

Rosin can be made from either cannabis flower or hash, which is the collected kief (trichomes) of the Cannabis plant. If you have a grinder with a kief catch, you are probably already familiar! Rosin made from cannabis nugs tends to be slightly more difficult to enjoy, as plant matter almost always impacts the rosin. This does not impede the rosin’s potency but can cause an unpleasant flavor or smell for the user.

Once the cannabis source material is chosen, heat and pressure are applied. Most rosin for sale in dispensaries is created in a custom industrial press, though some users choose to make their own rosin at home with a hair straightener.

The applied heat and pressure to the cannabis material force out the cannabinoids and terpenes, similar to how canola or olives are pressed for oil. The end result is a cannabis concentrate with THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids as well as terpenes. The temperature and pressure applied correlate to the type of rosin produced. Rosin can be made into shatter, budder, taffy, and wax consistencies.
