There are several ways to consume medical cannabis. Your chosen method can affect the intensity and duration of the effects of your medication.
Combustion refers to a few different options, such as a pipe, water bong or rolled cannabis joint. It is generally not recommended as smoking can contribute to COPD and produces undesirable compounds that can be irritating to the lungs. Some things to consider related to combustion:
A vaporizer is a device that heats dried medical cannabis without causing combustion, producing a vapor rich in cannabinoids that can be inhaled directly. There are several different models of vaporizers, and you can explore your options to see which one works best for you. Some points on vaporization:
Our cannabis oil is made by infusing THC and CBD extracts into a carrier sunflower oil, offering patients a simple, easy-to-administer method of consumption. Although prepared edible products are not currently permitted for legal sale in Canada, OrganiOils can be used in the preparation of cannabis-enriched foods, added to liquids or placed directly under the tongue. Oils offer an inhalation-free, discreet alternative to combustion or vaporization, though the effects differ from combustion or vaporization.
When consuming cannabis oil (especially for new patients), titration is key. It's a process of gradually increasing a dose until the desired results are achieved. The key concept behind titration: start low and go slow. Because the effects of ingestion often take longer to onset than the effects of vaporization or combustion, patients are cautioned exercise patience to gauge the effects of the first dose before taking additional doses. Consuming too much can result in some discomfort, and should be avoided.
How to effectively achieve your titration point:
Some things to keep in mind:
While effects of smoking or vaporizing medical cannabis occur within minutes, the effects of oral ingestion have a slower onset and longer duration.
Consult the chart below as a suggested titration schedule. Please consult with your physician to develop a treatment plan optimal for your condition.
