My uncle loved the expression, “there’s more than 1 way to skin a cat,” despite the fact that I altered it to “frying an egg” when I taught it to my own teenagers.
In my mind, it’s the perfect analogy for situations where you are given multiple chances to accomplish a task and neither chance is necessarily better than another.
You can scramble your egg, fry it sunny side up or over-easy, however at the end of the afternoon it’s a pan-fried egg. This analogy works well for cannabis consumption, especially since there are half a dozen odd administration methods, and then among those there are various ways you can go about consuming the medicine in the plantâ€¦ Some people like to consume cannabis entirely, whether it’s by a capsule, syringe of oil, edible, drink, or tincture. My liver is seriously inefficient at processing THC orally, so I stick with cannabis inhalation instead. I don’t smoke cannabis flower buds anymore; I use a cannabis vaporizer instead. More often than not I’m consuming a butane hash oil cannabis concentrate with my “dabbing” equipment. “Dabbing” is the process of consuming a cannabis concentrate through inhalation. Sometimes a person will heat their dabbing unit hot enough for total combustion, while others will tend to vaporize their concentrates instead. I have what is called an “electronic nail” and it’s basically a quartz bowl that is heated around the bottom and sides with a titanium coil. The temperature is controlled digitally with a controller unit that plugs into the wall. The bowl is put into a 90 degree bong, completing the “dabbing rig.”
