Consumption


When consuming cannabis, one of the most important factors is the delivery method.

Gaining the mental and physical benefits of cannabis is largely dependent upon how it’s consumed, with each method providing a unique experience and host of effects.

TOPICAL

PATCHES, SALVES, LOTIONS & OILS

Topical effects differ from other methods in that they don’t provide the cerebral stimulation that users describe as “being high.” Because of this, topicals are appropriate for consumers needing a clear head and localized relief (for example, muscle aches or soreness).

ORAL INGESTION

CAPSULES & EDIBLES

Eating or drinking cannabis provides significantly different effects from other delivery methods that immediately enter the bloodstream. Orally ingested products have longer onsets and tend to cause powerful full-body, psychoactive effects.


CANNABIS USE CAN CONTRIBUTE TO SHORT-TERM AND LONG-TERM ADVERSE EFFECTS SUCH AS IMPAIRED MEMORY, IMPAIRED MOTOR ABILITY, ALTERED JUDGEMENT AND PARANOIA. REGULAR INHALATION MAY BE ASSOCIATED WITH INFLAMMATION OF THE LARGE AIRWAYS, INCREASED AIRWAY RESISTANCE AND LUNG HYPERINFLATION. THERE IS ALSO AN INCREASED RISK OF CHRONIC PSYCHOSIS DISORDERS (INCLUDING SCHIZOPHRENIA) IN PERSONS WITH A PREDISPOSITION TO SUCH DISORDERS.
