FAQs About Cannabis
Sourced from the flowers, buds or leaves of the cannabis plant, cannabis is a drug used by many people for both recreational and medicinal purposes.
There is no difference! Marijuana, weed and reefer are just a few examples of the many terms for cannabis.
Cannabis comes from two main plants, Sativa and Indica.
- Sativa is a tall plant with thin leaves that produces a chemical that creates an uplifting, energized mood.
- Indica grows shorter and denser, and is known to produce a more calming effect.
- Hybrids can have characteristics of both sativa and indica plants, depending on how they were combined.
Different cannabis strains are distinguished by different combinations of terpenes in the plant. Terpenes are molecules found in the oils of the Cannabis plant. There are more than 20,000 terpenes in existence and at least 100 produced by the cannabis plant. Consider terpenes a connoisseur’s approach to cannabis.
Terpenes may play a role in the effect of cannabis. For instance, myrcene, the most common terpene found in commercial cannabis may be associated with calming and relaxation.
Because cannabis contains tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), there could be health risks associated with using cannabis usage. Some of these effects include having difficulty thinking and problem-solving, having problems with memory, learning and maintaining attention and demonstrating impaired coordination.
Smoke from cannabis contains many of the same toxins, irritants, and carcinogens as tobacco smoke. Smoking cannabis can lead to a greater risk of bronchitis, cough, and phlegm production. Whereas, Cannabis edibles take longer to digest, as a result they take longer to produce an effect, and people may consume more to feel the effects faster. This may lead to people consuming high doses and could result in negative effects like anxiety, paranoia and, in rare cases, an extreme psychotic reaction (e.g. delusions, hallucinations, talking incoherently, and agitation).

Like any other drug, cannabis’s effects on a person depends on a number of factors, including the person’s previous experience with the drug or other drugs, biology, gender, how the drug is taken, and how strong the drug is.
THC and CBD are both chemical compounds, but they have different effects. Short for tetrahydrocannabinol, THC is what provides the feeling of being “high”, while CBD has less psychoactive effects. In fact, when the percentage of CBD (or cannabidiol) is higher than that of THC, some research shows it may block the effects of THC.
Yes, this is’s somewhat true. Back in the day, tropical-grown sativas were known for clear-headed, buzzy highs, and mountainous, cold weather-borne indicas were known for heavy, sedative effects.
But hybridization of cannabis now makes this harder to define. For example, OG Kush, one of the most popular strains, is a hybrid. There are dozens of OG Kush brands that might now be advertised as an indica, a hybrid, or sativa-dominant. Consumers are now paying more attention to the terpenes that is in the product, to get a better idea of what it’ll do.
Milled flower is cannabis bud that has ground into a coarse powder-like state. This can be used in the same way as dried flower. Excellent for using in joints.
Dabbing is for high-tolerance users. Dabbing refers to heating a very small amount of very concentrated cannabis – often called wax, budder, rosin, honey oil or shatter. Effects are usually felt immediately.
