Ingesting cannabis oil from an oral dosing syringe or packaged in softgels ensures accurate dosing. It is not recommended to add cannabis oil to baked goods or other food (e.g., yoghurt), as dosing precision is lost.
Vapourizing is a way to inhale the bioactive components of medical cannabis without burning the plant material. Cannabis is heated to a temperature that volatilizes, without combusting, the cannabinoids and other plant constituents, substantially reducing toxic by-products. It reduces
the harms associated with smoking, is a more efficient way of extracting chemically active constituents, and reduces the loss of cannabinoids in sidestream smoke, which leads to substantial cost saving over smoking.
Despite smoking being the most common means of consuming cannabis, this is not a recommended method. Smoking plant substances is associated with serious adverse health effects. Smoking releases toxins and carcinogens, including ammonia, carbon monoxide, tar, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
