Medicinal cannabis can be taken in different ways and is available in a range of THC:CBD ratios. The most common forms are oils or capsules to be taken orally, or dried plant material for inhalation (used with a vaporiser). These different forms act on the body at different speeds – for example, inhaled THC/CBD is active much faster than THC/CBD taken orally.


In some countries it is illegal for any patient being treated with medicinal cannabis containing THC to drive while undergoing treatment. The legislation varies in different countries regarding driving and having any detectable cannabidiol and cannabinoids. Selecting the most suitable cannabinoid product should be discussed with your treating physician.
