Learn about cannabis

What is Cannabis?

Cannabis is the term commonly used for the plant or flower of the Cannabaceae family. It’s been consumed by humans for longer than we’ve written stuff down.

Sativa and Indica

There are two main types of cannabis for human use: Sativa and Indica. Each has a different shape, size, leaf and effect. Crossed with each other, they make hybrids. Indica is generally considered to provide a calming and relaxing effect. Sativa can have more energizing, uplifting and cerebral effects.

Hybrids

And those hybrids? Somewhere between the two, with a dominant effect from one of the two parent plants.

THC and CBD

The active compounds in cannabis are cannabinoids. Cannabis has more than 100 of them, of which THC and CBD are the most common.

Odour

Ever noticed the distinct smell of cannabis? You can thank terpenes for that. They’re volatile aromatic compounds in the essential oil of plants, including cannabis.

Trichomes

Terpenes and cannabinoids like THC and CBD are both contained in trichomes, tiny and sticky hairs on the cannabis flower.

High flying with medical marijuana

Flying within Canada with cannabis should be pretty straight forward -- but then again, nothing to do with airport travel ever is. Here’s a quick tutorial by Tim Clayton, HEXO’s Business Development Manager for Eastern Canada.

Respect the personal carry amount. That means 30g of dried cannabis or its equivalent in other forms, such as oils.

You must be of legal age in the province you visit. The legal age to purchase and consume cannabis is 19, everywhere except for Alberta and Quebec, where it’s 18.

Educate yourself about public consumption in the province you visit. Each province is different – some allow consumption in public parks, on sidewalks or outdoor public places, others do not.  And the airport? Definitely a no-go.

Do not travel outside of Canada with cannabis. “It may be legal where you are going, but it’s illegal to take cannabis outside of Canada,” Tim notes.

Change your baggage before leaving Canada. “If you have travelled with medical marijuana in your luggage before, use different luggage or clean it well before travelling to the US or overseas,” Tim notes. “Faint traces can still be picked up by a canine agent.”
