Frequently Asked Questions
In what ways can cannabis be consumed?
It can be smoked using papers, bongs, pipes, dab rigs, and vaporizers. Inhalation is a considerably more rapid and efficient delivery method than ingestion as the cannabinoids, terpenes and other compounds pass readily across the lining of the lungs directly into the bloodstream. However, cannabis when combusted creates potentially harmful chemicals known as reactive oxygen species that may irritate the mouth, throat, and lungs over time.
It can be vaporized using portable, handheld vape pens. Vaporization is based on the principle of evaporation; the temperature at which cannabinoids and terpenes evaporate is lower than the temperature at which plant material burns. It is safer and more efficient than smoking as the vapor consists of up to 95% cannabinoids and terpenes (the good stuff).
It can be ingested using edibles and tinctures. May be the safest and healthiest method of consumption as it is smoke-free. When eaten, the onset of effects are felt much later but last much longer than the aforementioned methods, and may create a different quality of high. This is because the cannabinoids pass through the digestive system before entering the bloodstream. A tincture is a concentrated extract of cannabis in liquid alcohol or glycerin that is taken by mouth as a drop or beneath the tongue.
It can be applied topically using lotions, sprays, and creams, even bathing products. This method is an additional smoke-free, healthy way of using cannabis as the cannabinoids are absorbed through the skin. Similar to edibles, the effects are prolonged.

Is it illegal for me to buy from you?
Nope. So long as you’re 18 years or older, anyone is welcome at the Cannabis Jar. Currently, the only legal methods to obtain medical marijuana is through the ACMPR program by growing your own, having a designated grower do it for you, or by purchasing from a Licensed Producer. The Cannabis Jar doesn’t sell cannabis yet, only smoking wares. However, as recreational cannabis will be legalized by July 1, 2018, the Cannabis Jar is working towards securing a license from the Manitoba government enabling its establishment to dispense cannabis.
