Everyone knows what a syringe applicator is, but did you know that there are numerous ways to use it? At DC Alchemy, we wanted to share with you the most popular ways to use your applicator so you can find fun ways to vary up your intake of medical marijuana distillates/oil, and CBD.
But first, let’s start with the basics.
What is Dabbing
Another common term you’re probably familiar with is dabbing. And no, we’re not talking about the 2014 dancing/celebratory trend. Dabbing, in this sense, is different. Dabs are concentrated doses of cannabis that are made by extracting THC or CBD. They are, essentially, the sticky oils you use the syringe applicators for.
So dabbing is using those sticky oils and consuming them. When done safely with clean, tested, and legal products — like medical marijuana and CBD — there are several advantages to using the oils to help deal with chronic pain and nausea.
While dabbing isn’t the most popular method of consumption, it has pushed many technological advancements in extracting the oils and consuming them. Let’s look at common trends for consuming the oils, which require the syringe applicators.
Adding Oil to Joints
We won’t spend much time on this one since it is self explanatory and one of the more common ways of using applicators. You simply put small amounts of the distillate or oil onto your medical marjiana joint before you smoke it.
Vaping or smoking is the most effective way of taking in distillates and oils, though it is not the cleanest. We mean that literally — the oils tend to ruin the durability of the blunt and can lead to a soggy or sticky experience.
Adding Oils to Food
Baking medical marjiuana into food is not a new concept. In fact, it’s actually quite popular. The most recent trend is using CBD oil in recipes too!
There is an endless list of CBD infused food and drink that you can make at home, like cold brew, salad dressing, baked treats, and more. Here’s how:
Cold brew is brewed by soaking coffee beans in cold or room-temperature water for 12 hours or more to extract sugars, oils and caffeine. Cold brew is known for how strong it is and how you sometimes experience anxiety or jitters after drinking it. That’s where the CBD comes in. It eliminates the jitters by getting rid of the negative effects of over-caffeination.
If you enjoy drinking, CBD cocktails are for you! It is safe to mix with drinking, however it can lower your alcohol tolerance level, thus increasing the drink’s effect.
The CBD extracts can be mixed with spirits such as vodka and cognac, as well as beer and wine.
CBD Salad Dressings and Vinaigrettes
You can make mouth watering vinaigrettes and salad dressings with CBD oil infused in them. Try this delicious recipe that uses fresh strawberries, CBD hemp oil, and avocado oil.
Or, if strawberries aren’t your thing, you can try this zesty dressing with cherry tomatoes, red wine, and, for a kick, dijon mustard.
Baking CBD into Food
The culinary community has made great strides in adding CBD into delicious recipes. Take these cupcakes for example that use your favorite cake mix, whipped cream frosting, and pudding mix. A syringe applicator is a must for this method as it requires specific dosing to ensure the baked goods aren’t runny!
Unlike other cannabis edibles, CBD edibles do not produce a high effect and are weaker than other forms of consumption. However, if you have a sweet tooth, this is the most delicious method you’ll find.
Placing Oil Under Your Tongue
Another popular form of consumption is sublingual — placing a drop of the oil under your tongue. This guarantees max absorption without any of the fillers.
The word ‘sublingual’ refers to the large blood vessel found under your tongue. The oil crosses the thin membrane and enters your bloodstream. This method requires very little effort and can be completed in a couple of minutes. You don’t typically use a syringe applicator for these, but rather what is provided with your bottle of CBD.
This isn’t as effective as vaping, but it is so popular because it is so simple.
