One Hitters And Beyond: Discreet Ways To Use Medical Marijuana

Updated on April 25, 2021

Medicinal marijuana is believed to cure some diseases and relieve pain. The questions surrounding the subject of Cannabis being used as a medical prescription have been around for ages. While more research is needed to establish the medicinal benefits of Marijuana, several people already experience its benefits. There are also patients who were recommended by their healthcare provider to continue using Marijuana for medical reasons.  

However, due to the stigma that is still surrounding Marijuana and its usage, many people feel the need to use it more discreetly.  

Discreet Ways To Use Marijuana 

There are several methods to use or smoke Marijuana discreetly. These methods are helpful for people who spend most of their time outside their home and would not want to cause alarm or attention from people nearby. Such methods include the following: 

  1. OneHitters 

One-hitters are designed for micro dosages of Cannabis. From traditional to modern pipes like the DART, one-hitters have evolved to enhance the smoking experience.  

The main feature of a one-hitter is the slender pipes that maximize smoke intake. These pipes have been used in smoking tobacco which doesn’t attract as much controversy as weed. Hence, smoking with these pipes would make it look like you’re smoking tobacco. The slender pipes and compact packing on the bowl mean that very little smoke is let out to the environment.  

By reducing the amount of smoke, one-hitters are perfect if you want to smoke in public discretely. The micro-dosing also means that you’ll be carrying just enough of what you need to get through the day.  

  1. Edibles  

With edibles, you don’t need any special equipment to smoke. This is the perfect option for those who are not used to smoking but are in need to take Marijuana for medicinal purposes.

Edibles are produced in form of cookies, brownies, or gummies. They contain either cannabidiol (CBD) or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). These are the two active ingredients used in medical marijuana. The good thing about edibles is that they can be carried anywhere—even when you’re traveling. The disadvantage, however, is that the effects usually take a long time to kick in.  

  1. Vapes 

Vapes are another discreet way to smoke Marijuana. This is because most vapes have non-cannabis scents. The scents are different depending on a person’s preference. When you’re using a vape, people will hardly notice because the smell could be neutral or sweet. 

Although vaping produces a lot of smoke, the equipment comes in portable sizes. Therefore, it is still a great option for those who want to take a hit in public. Unlike edibles, vaping lets you experience the benefits of Marijuana more quickly. 

  1. Syrup  

There are several medicinal cannabis strains that can easily dissolve in water, coffee, or other beverages. All you need is to find the right amount of THC for medication. You can then take it discreetly among people without them realizing it.  

A THC syrup is made by adding cannabis concentrate to vegetable glycerin. Sweeteners such as sugar and flavors could be added depending on preference. Using syrup has gained popularity because they produce effects faster than edibles. Since it’s rare for someone to link syrups with cannabis, this method is more discreet than smoking.  

  1. Transdermal Patches  

These patches use the scientific principle of diffusion to get marijuana into your bloodstream. These patches are infused with a certain amount of CBD or THC, and you can place it as a band-aid on any part of your body. 

The drug will then flow from the patch to your body at a prolonged rate. The effect of this is slow, and people will hardly realize that they’re getting a kick. Transdermal patches are quick and easy to use. It can be carried and used anytime and anywhere. It’s perfect for users who frequently travel from one place to another, and of course, it does not attract much attention! 


Even though the use of Marijuana is already accepted in many parts of the world, many people are still not accustomed to seeing people openly smoking or consuming marijuana in public. It can still attract unwanted attention and judgment—especially among the older generation. 

However, science and medical researchers are not deterred by social stigma. As time goes by, more people have also recognized the medicinal benefits of Marijuana. But if you’re using cannabis for medical reasons, you should be careful with the amount of CBD or THC used in the dose. Choose a method that works best for you depending on the hit’s strength and the dosage and frequency of use. Most of all, make sure to consult your doctor first.
