Ways cannabis is used

Cannabis can be used in many different ways. To keep you safe we recommend you take medicinal cannabis in an oil form or in capsules filled with cannabis oil.

We do not recommend using cannabis in these ways:

  • Smoking
    • Joints or spliffs (cannabis rolled in cigarette paper)
  • Pipes and bongs
  • Blunts (partially or entirely hollowed out cigar wrappers filled with cannabis)
  • Drinking or eating (edibles for sale are not legal at this time):
    • Teas
    • Sodas
    • Baked goods
  • Vaporizing/vaping (breathing in dried cannabis or liquid cannabis vapours through a vaporizer or vaping device)
  • Dabbing (breathing in very hot vapours from heating cannabis)
