Hello! The good news is that you have many options in administering cannabis other than smoking, such as sublingual tinctures or sprays, topical cannabis, edible cannabis, cannabis beverages, transdermal patches, and vaporizing cannabis, among others. If you are looking for the next best option with similar effects as smoking, I would recommend vaporizing cannabis. You can purchase a cannabis vaporizer and use the cannabis flower in the machine, heat the cannabis to a level that is just under the point of smoke or combustion, and inhale the vapor which will be medicated with cannabis. It takes 5-10 minutes to feel the effects from vapor and typically lasts 3-4 hours. If you are already used to smoking, I believe this is the next best option. Best of luck!
