HOW TO CONSUME
Cannabis flower is one of the most familiar products on the market and the most versatile. Cannabis flower can be smoked or vaporized, or used to make concentrates and other infused products.
Edibles, which come in the forms of baked goods, beverages, and more, are a popular way to consume cannabis for those who don't wish to smoke flower or vaporize concentrates.
