Dried medical cannabis may be consumed in a variety of ways. The most common methods include smoking, vaporizing, and oral consumption as oil or elixir.
Medical cannabis can be smoked in a cigarette form or in a device such as a pipe. Typically, physicians never recommend this method of consumption, as research has indicated that there are significantly higher risks of cancer and respiratory disease associated with smoking cannabis, as opposed to consuming it via alternative methods (Canadian Cancer Society).
Another common method of cannabis consumption is vaporization. As opposed to using an open flame, vaporizers use an internal element to heat the cannabis to a temperature which is hot enough to vaporize the active ingredients from the oily trichomes of the female flower (the phytocannabinoids and terpenoids), without reaching a temperature hot enough to induce combustion the plant material. This releases the medicinal ingredients of the cannabis plant, making them available for inhalation, without generating the undesirable by-products of smoke.
Oral consumption (ingestion) is another popular method of consuming medical cannabis, and the one by far favoured by the majority of medical practitioners. To experience maximum medicinal benefits, the cannabis should be decarboxylated prior to ingestion. Decarboxylation is accomplished through the application of heat. The effects of this method of consumption tend to provide deeper, physical sensations throughout the body. Since the cannabis must first be absorbed through the digestive system, it does take longer for the medicinal effects to be felt.

Domestic Travel: You can legally travel with your medical cannabis within Canada. However, you must keep it in the original Starseed Medicinal Inc. packaging in which it was ordered and keep your Starseed medical card on you always. If you are travelling within Canada via air, please ensure to check with the airline you are travelling with, to see if they have any requirements for travelling with medical cannabis.
International Travel: Medical cannabis cannot be brought over any international border, even if it has been obtained legally and is accompanied by all relevant paperwork. It is only legal to travel with your authorized cannabis within Canada (domestically); outside of Canada, it is illegal.
