Whether you’re a seasoned expert or new to the cannabis universe, there’s always something to learn – especially if you want to save money while enjoying cannabis at home. In this DIY guide, our team at Joyology Lowell shares valuable insights and practical tips about incorporating cannabis into your everyday routine.
Understanding the Basics
Before diving into the DIY realm, it’s essential to understand the basics of cannabis, its different strains, effects, and dosages. For beginners, it’s crucial to start with low doses and gradually increase while continually monitoring effects.

DIY Edibles at Home
Edibles are a popular method of cannabis consumption, and luckily, they can be easily made at home. All you need is your preferred strain of cannabis, some butter, and your favorite recipe. The key to perfecting edibles is mastering the process of decarboxylation which involves, baking the cannabis to activate the THC or CBD. Note that it’s essential to get the dosage right to prevent an overwhelming experience.
DIY Cannabis Topicals
Did you know you can also create your own cannabis-infused lotions, balms, or salves at home? These products can offer a unique way of experiencing the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without any psychoactive effects. Start by infusing cannabis with a carrier oil such as coconut or olive oil. Once your cannabis-infused oil is prepared, it can be used as a base to create a variety of topicals.
Growing Your Own Cannabis
If you have a green thumb and want to take your DIY to an entirely new level, consider growing your own cannabis. However, keep in mind the legality issues related to cultivating cannabis at home as laws vary by state. In Michigan, for instance, recreational users are permitted to grow up to 12 plants. Ensure you have quality seeds, a good lighting setup, and patience.
The world of DIY cannabis can seem intimidating at first, but with practice, you can find a real sense of accomplishment and enjoy the benefits of customizing cannabis to fit your desired experience perfectly. Remember, the team at Joyology Lowell is always here to help should you need it.
