Dried cannabis flowers are the most popular way to consume cannabis due to its versatility and fast-acting effects. Our cannabis flowers will be available in a variety of different strains for treating specific medical conditions, achieving a desired mood or effect.
What’s in different cannabis strains? Enough to make a big difference to your marijuana experience. Here’s what you can expect from the major strains, depending on the ratio and concentrations.
Sativa is one of the two primary strains of cannabis. This is a THC dominant strain, although Sativa strains can contain other cannabinoids. Sativa strains tend to be more uplifting and cerebral in their effects.
CBD is found in higher quantity in Indica strains. Indicas often contain a mixture of the two primary cannabinoids, THC and CBD. These strains tend to have more full-body effects and are more relaxing.
A hybrid strain is a cross between Indica and Sativa which is created by breeding the two strains. Hybrid strains can be customized for specific needs and the cannabinoid content can be tailored and customized quite closely.
THC is the principle psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that will give you the feeling of being “high” or euphoria. Depending on your reaction, taking THC in high doses can make you feel intoxicated, give you anxiety or disorientation. The levels of THC in our cannabis flowers, oils, and edibles vary depending on the strain of cannabis plant.
CBD is a favourite among those looking for cannabis with low side-effects. Cannabis CBD is commonly used for medicinal purpose. Cannabidiol is the primary non-psychoactive component in medicinal cannabis. It is a serotonin receptor agonist and has been shown to enhance the adenosine receptor signaling by preventing the receptor from being inactive. CBD heavy cannabis strains are commonly prescribed to treat pain and inflammation.
Cannabis contains many other cannabinoids aside from THC and CBD. These compounds are still being studied and the evidence for their individual effects is still limited. It is thought that many are essential metabolites of the primary cannabinoids.
A precursor for the primary cannabinoids, cannabigerolic acid is present in cannabis to varying degrees, depending on the strain. A non-psychoactive cannabinoid, Cannabigerol has been found to present antimicrobial effects and has been shown to inhibit the proliferation of cancer cells as well as keratinocytes.
∆8 -THC is contained in cannabis is miniscule amounts. It is not as psychoactive as the primary cannabinoid THC. It can be an effective appetite stimulant, even at low doses.
Terpenes or terpenoids are compounds that give the cannabis plant its aroma and physiological effects. There are over 100 different terpenes in cannabis. Different cannabis strains have distinct terpenes and help make each strain identifiable via smell.
There are various terpenes profiles and the consensus is that certain ones deliver consistent feelings and effects. Musky terpenes may give you a relaxing effect, citrus smelling cannabis can give you an uplifting mood and pine-like terpenes may give you mental alertness or increase memory.
Some of the main terpenes in cannabis are:
Inhale once or twice in 15-minute intervals to comfortably find the right dosage without over medicating. Once you’re comfortable with your dosage, increase it as you see fit.
Vapourizing is good for managing dosage and fast relief because the desired effects of the cannabis strain are felt almost immediately.
