How do I use medical cannabis and does it have to be smoked?

Emerald offers two types of medical cannabis, dried cannabis and cannabis oils. Dried cannabis can be consumed by smoking or vaporizing (vaping). Vaping uses an external heating element to achieve an ideal temperature that is hot enough to release the active ingredients without generating any smoke. Emerald’s cannabis oils are ingested orally either directly or after being added as an ingredient to a food item. Orally consuming cannabis results in a more delayed onset time, with the effects often being stronger and longer-lasting.
