Ingesting medical cannabis for the first time can be difficult and confusing. CannaConnect works to alleviate their patients’ worries regarding medical cannabis. We offer educational resources surrounding the safe and effective consumption of medical cannabis, including information about methods of consumption.

The Vaporizer
Vaporizers use a combustion process that rids cannabis of toxins. By vaporizing rather than burning, the resultant vapour may lessen the impact of first and second hand smoke. Vaporizing allows medical cannabis to be consumed efficiently and non-toxically by those in need.
The vaporizer heats combustible material such as tobacco or cannabis to a temperature of 130° to 230° C, subsequently allowing vapour to materialize while remaining below the combustion threshold. A study from the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) states that produced vapours consist of 95% THC. In comparison, smoked medical cannabis contains 111 other toxins and non-cannabinoid ingredients, which make up 88% of the smoke content. Experts believe the respiratory hazards often associated with smoking marijuana are caused by toxins from combustion (rather than the cannabinoids in the merchandise cannabis itself).
Some vaporizers employ a bag to capture the vapour. This limits the spread of second hand smoke by preventing its dispersal into the air. Whether for patients or for those around them, vaporizing is a healthier and safer method of ingesting medical cannabis.
CannaConnect’s partner, Aviary Vape Co., provides vaporizers at industry-best pricing. They provide four different vaporizer models for each patient’s needs. Aviary ensures that orders are completed and shipped within the same day. The vaporizers are readily available to Canadian patients and are also offered to U.S. customers from warehouses in Buffalo and Chicago.
Orally consumed cannabis products, commonly known as edibles, were officially legalized for medicinal cannabis patients on June 11th, 2015, by the Supreme Court of Canada. Because edibles require no smoke inhalation, they are an appealing option for many patients. Currently, 16-26% of patients consume edibles, and experts expect that figure to continue rising.
Edibles are a good option for people who suffer from pain, nausea, or lack of appetite. There are several types of edibles available for Canada-wide shipping, including Oreos, brownies, muffins, flavoured popcorn and chocolate bars.
Edibles are created through a chemical process called decarboxylation (a natural reaction when heating cannabis), which changes the THCA in raw cannabis into THC. The heat from baking edibles initiates decarboxylation and releases the THC. Typically, a serving of any edible contains 10mg of THC.
