Flying With Cannabis

flying with cannabis

Flying With Cannabis In Canada

Cannabis is legal in Canada like alcohol and tobacco, with its own restrictions and legalities. Flying with cannabis may seem odd given its been illegal for so many years, but with weed being legal in Canada, you can fly with it just like you can alcohol and tobacco.

Can I Fly In-Between Provinces With Weed?

Yes, you can! Just remember you’re flying in between provinces and within Canada. If your flight is beyond domestic, then it is illegal to transport cannabis and products containing cannabis (including CBD).

If I Have a Medical Marijuana License In Canada, Can I Fly With Weed Anywhere?

No, you can not. Even if you have a small amount or are fully authorized to use cannabis medically, you cannot fly anywhere beyond the Canadian border. If you are entering Canada and you have cannabis with you, it is mandatory to declare it to the Canada Border Services Agency. What happens if you don’t? You may be prosecuted.

How Old Do I Need To Be To Purchase Weed?

You need to be the legal age in your specific province, or the province you’re visiting in. Follow the link here to learn about what the age of majority is in your province.

How Much Weed Can I Fly With?

When travelling between provinces in Canada and you meet the age of majority in whichever province you’re visiting, you may possess up to 30 grams of dried cannabis. In a visual aspect, that equals about two hearty handfuls. Seems like quite a bit right?

Flying With Cannabis Oils

Don’t forget that even though weed is legal in Canada, and you’re able to fly with 30 grams, cannabis oil follows the same regulations with liquids. Keep it under 100ml (3.4oz) and put it in a clear resealable plastic bag that doesn’t exceed 1 litre in volume.

Flying with Weed Vaporizers

Every airline has its regulations that must be followed when it comes to batteries. For example, Air Canada specifically permits personal electronic devices with lithium-ion batteries (100 Wh – 160 Wh) in carry-on baggage only.

Remember, it’s 30 grams whether you’re on the ground or up in the air.

Check where you can smoke in your province because it varies based on provincial law. For example, Ontario and British Columbia are more lenient with cannabis regulations and allow the public to smoke in many open public spaces, whereas Saskatchewan and New Brunswick only allow it in private residences.

Should I Travel With Weed?

In summary, it is permitted to travel within Canadian provinces with 30 grams of weed, but if your plane is going anywhere beyond the Canadian border, it is illegal, and you might be prosecuted. Read the rules and stay safe. Remember that approximately two handfuls are the maximum allowed per person when travelling with weed.

Are Butane Hash Oil Products Bad?

Are BHO Products Harmful

Are Butane Weed Products Bad?

Canada Wide Weed is one of the select few Vancouver Online Dispensary’s to not sell or promote the use of butane hash oil products because of their harmful properties. How do butane products harm you? Canada Wide Weed will dive into it for you explaining the true facts to educate our customers on cannabis products extracted using butane.

What are Butane Hash Oil products?

BHO, short for butane hash oil is a form of cannabis concentrate extracted by using butane. The butane heat and pressure extracts its cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis flower.

What types of products use butane?

There are 7 main products that are extracted using butane:

  1. Shatter
  2. Pull and snap
  3. Crumble
  4. Budder
  5. Wax
  6. Sap
  7. Oil

Why is BHO extraction risky? How do BHO products harm my health?

BHO extraction is risky and should only be completed by professionals because of the flammable gas used in the process. The “gas takes liquid form in the tube during the extraction process, and then quickly evaporates when the heat is applied to the mixture. After it evaporates, heavier-than-oxygen butane quickly ‘falls on the floor’ This is why making BHO indoors is extremely dangerous” (The Growth Op).

Are Butane Hash Oil Products High in THC?

BHO products are extremely high in THC as it is a concentrate. Majority of THC molecules are in the oil making it more potent than the dried herb itself.

Can Butane Hash Oil Products Cause Cancer?

Since this product in new in recent years, scientists are still testing the severity of cancer-causing agents in the butane cannabis products. However, it must be noted that BHO products/butane products have classified carcinogens in them from the butane extraction process. When the BHO product user heats up the BHO product, it begins releasing carcinogens immediately, which you then inhale.

If the BHO product is manufactured properly, there should be less than 1% of butane left in the product once it is ready for sale. There are many varying opinions, but our opinion at Canada Wide Weed is that BHO products are harmful to the body and shouldn’t be used as the main inhalation of cannabis.

The Truth About Butane Hash Oil Products

The medical movement and activists for the healing properties of marijuana had revolutionized the industry and made it more advanced in development than ever before. What is our concern? That the focus is veering away from the medical properties and the companies who manufacture BHO products with cost-effectiveness as a priority may not be producing the best product for your health and that is our concern. Medical cannabis and ensuring you have the correct strain that works for you is our priority. Canada Wide Weed values natural healing and educating out customers on natural holistic healing. With holistic health as a priority, butane cannot be in our line of products.

Why do we only carry Cannatek Dab Pen co2 cartridges?

Cannatek

Cannatek co2 Dab Pen cart are the best quality.

Since 2016, Canadawideweed.com has only carried Cannatek Dab Pens.  We tried Flyte.  We tried Alair.  We tried every competitor we could get our hands on.  At CWW we are simply dedicated to only carrying the best quality products.  One thing we have never carried is any kind of butane product.  That is an automatic no for us and in fact the Canadian government has made butane extractions illegal.  We also don’t like distillate extractions because we like to have full spectrum extractions.

What does Full Spectrum oil mean?

Full spectrum oil means that the only thing that is removed during the extraction process is the green plant material.  This is a way of concentrating the cannabis while maintaining the chemical compounds and flavour profiles of the plant.  The chemical compounds are known as cannabinoids.  These are the popular THC and CBD that many of you reading this are familiar with.  Did you know that there is actually 113 different cannabinoids in the cannabis plant? CBG and CBN are just now becoming known for extraction as well as THC-A.  The point of this information is that co2 extraction preserves all these cannabinoids.  The percentages of these compounds work in natural harmony to create the overall medical effect of the plant.  This is commonly referred to as the entourage effect in the cannabis world.  The other part of the plant that is retained in the co2 extraction process is the terpenes.  Many of you have likely seen that companies are listing the terpenes that are present in various cannabis flowers.  Terpenes are what give the cannabis flowers their aroma and flavour.  They too are also important for the medicinal properties of various strains.

Difference between CO2 and Distillate Extracts

CO2

CO2 is used as a non-toxic solvent for extracting cannabinoids. With enough pressure CO2 will maintain a liquid state. During CO2 extraction the liquid CO2 dissolves and separates the cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis plant matter.  This process creates a concentrated cannabinoid oil. Any remaining CO2 in the cannabis oil quickly evaporates creating a waxy, solvent free cannabis concentrate. When it is made properly it is a light amber coloured oil, as you can see with Cannatek oil.  Most information online will state that CO2 oil will range in potency from 50% – 70% THC.  Cannatek’s propriety extraction methods and high quality AAAA cannabis flowers ensure that the potency is at minimum 70% THC.  Often they have vape carts available with 75% – 79% THC.  Occasionally they will find a strain that is so potent that it tests at 80%+.   The highest percentage they ever extracted was some years ago, when a Lindsey Kush strain brought back a 95% THC test.

DISTILLATE

Distillate extractions were primarily done to extract a higher % of THC.  The distillation process is used to separate components of plant by knowing their various boiling points.  This is a common practice when making alcohol in which toxic methanol is removed and you are left with concentrated ethanol.  Cannabis distillate can be made in a fairly crude manner, simply by heating the cannabinoids to their boiling point.  The cannabinoid vapour condenses and then is collected in a new container while leaving behind the chlorophyll and other plant materials. Cannabis distillate usually ends up with a purer THC content of 80% t0 90%, but other cannabinoids and terpenes are burned off in the process as well. Often times, people try to “reintroduce” terpenes back into their distillate.  This is essentially like adding food colouring or using artificial or even natural flavours.  It’s never the same as the whole food.

No Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin

Cannatek CO2 Dab Pen Carts are pure oil.  The beauty of the CO2 extraction process is that it separates the waxes and plant material in the oil well enough that it is viscous enough to be vaped.  Other oil rely on Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG) to thin the oil.  This makes the oil viscous enough to be vaped properly.  Many of the health problems and even deaths that you hear from vaping come from the “cutting” agents that are being used in low quality cartridges.  These include nicotine as well as cannabis cartridges.  It is very important that the end user understands that Cannatek is a medicinal formula and is made for that use in mind.   All Cannatek oil is lab tested and certified by MB Labs, a Health Canada certified lab for cannabis.  Other brands claim they are lab tested, but are done by clandestine labs that are not Health Canada certified.

Convenient and classy.

Smoking can be a serious problem for many people.  Cannabis is now legal but that still doesn’t make it socially acceptable to light up a joint just anywhere.  Most Strata based apartments and condos have rules about smoking inside.  When we do deliveries their are constantly messages posted in lobbies about cannabis smoke no a days.  The smell permeates through hallways, lingers on clothes and can honestly be pretty offensive to the non smoker.  This is pretty similar to tobacco, people that don’t smoke it can be quite sensitive to it.  Vape pen carts are the perfect solution to these problems.  The vapour dissipates into the air within seconds and leaves no lingering smell. The vapour doesn’t attach to your clothes.  You don’t get THC crystals or sticky oils stuck to your hands from breaking up and rolling weed.  The shake and crumbs from your failed doobie experiments don’t get lodged into your carpet.  Their is no ash to contend with.  No need to carry around a lighter or constantly be searching for the one that your buddy stole from you for the 1,000th time. Once you try vaping it will open up a whole new world of cannabis consumption for you.

Lots of premium strains to try!

Cannatek has cannabis oil extractions from premium quad A quality strains.  These strains include Indica, Sativa, Hybrid and High CBD strains.  Whatever kind of effect you look for when choosing cannabis flower can be found in their cartridges.  You will be amazed at how much the flavour tastes like your favourite cannabis flowers.  In fact, it often tastes much better and cleaner than smoking.  Cannatek always has a great selection of strains to choose from.  You can find the absolute best selection of Cannatek products at Canadawideweed.com
