Everything you wanted to know but were too scared (or stoned) to ask!

Cannabis refers to a group of flowering plants in the Cannabaceae family. This group includes three plants with psychoactive properties known as Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis.

Cannabis contains components called cannabinoids, which are chemical compounds secreted by the cannabis flower. These cannabinoids mimic compounds naturally found in human bodies called endocannabinoids. When cannabis is consumed, cannabinoids bind to different receptors throughout the human body and create a range of effects, benefits and relief. Cannabinoids must be activated by decarboxylation or heating, which can occur through smoking, vaping or cooking cannabis.

While there are over 60 known types of cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, many more are thought to exist. The stars of the show are THC (Δ9–tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol), both of which are most commonly known and found in the cannabis plant.

THCA:(Δ9–tetrahydrocannabinol) One of the only cannabinoids that can get you high. THC binds with CB-1 receptors to create the psychoactive effects we know as feeling “high,” such as euphoria, laughter, hunger, and sleep.

CBDA: (cannabidiol) The cannabinoid that’s captivated the curious to the connoisseur. CBD tends to bind with CB-2 receptors and does not produce intoxicating effects but can have physiological effects like increasing relaxation, relieving stress and improving appetite.

Cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) is decarboxylated into cannabigerol (CBG) and can also be turned into THC and CBD. In this way, CBG is the chemical precursor for many cannabinoids. CBG is non-intoxicating and similar to CBD in many ways.

Cannabinol (CBN) is non-intoxicating and found in high amounts in older cannabis. When THC ages, CBN is created.

Terpenes give different cannabis strains their distinct aroma and flavor. The unique terpene profile of a strain helps differentiate between the effects of strains.

Trichomes are the microscopic outgrowths on the cannabis flower that contain most of the terpenes and cannabinoids.

Flower

Grind it, roll it, smoke it. Find the flower for you.

Flower is dried and cured buds from a female cannabis plant that has been dried over 7-10 days and left to cure for up to several weeks.

Flower is normally smoked in a joint, blunt, pipe or bong with the use of a grinder to break down the flower so smoke can evenly pass through and a heating element such as a butane lighter. Flower can also be vaporized and inhaled for a much smoother and less harsh experience than traditional smoking.

While there are many different ways to consume, the simplest and most well-known way to consume cannabis flower is by packing and smoking a bowl. You will need a grinder, bowl or pipe, lighter, and flower of your choice.

1. Grind the flower until it is evenly broken down but not too finely ground. 

2. Pack the ground-up flower into the bowl or pipe. Tip: Pack lightly at the bottom and denser towards the top for airflow without clogging.

3. Use a lighter to burn the flower and inhale. When using a pipe, cover the carb with your thumb while inhaling, let go to clear the smoke from the pipe. 

There are many different ways to roll a joint. You can opt for a pre-formed cone that can easily be packed with cannabis, or roll your own by hand.

To roll your own by hand, you will need a pack of joint papers, a slender object with a small flat end (like a pen), and a lighter. A grinder and joint tips (or crutches) are optional but helpful.

1. Decide how much flower to intake. Most people start with 1/4 or 1/2 of a gram for a small single joint.

2. Grind the flower until it is evenly broken down but not too finely ground. Tip: If it is too finely ground, the flower can fall through the tip when inhaling and end up in your mouth.

3. (Optional) Make a filter. Many joint papers come with cardboard-like material ready to be folded, however, a tip can be made from many different materials like glass, cardboard, or ceramic. Once your tip is ready, place it on the right or left edge of the joint paper with the glue side up and facing you.

4. Pack the ground-up flower into the paper. Pinch your fingers together and slowly roll them back and forth to shape the cannabis into a cone shape. Tip: Pack slightly lighter at the bottom and denser towards the top for airflow without clogging.

5. Tuck the unglued side of the paper between the crutch and glued side, roll it up. Tack the glued side of the paper down at the crutch using a small bit of moisture, then make your way down the seam tucking and sealing until you reach the tip. 

5. Finish off by lightly packing down the flower with a slender flat object (like the end of a pen) through the open end. Twist or fold any excess paper to seal it off.

6. Light the folded or twisted end with a lighter, inhale, and enjoy!

While strain types are typically associated with effects, the terms "indica" and "sativa" actually originated from the botanical definitions of different species of cannabis plants. Today, the terms "indica", "sativa" and "hybrid" are used to organize strains by effects.

Sativa: Associated with uplifting, energetic and focused effects. Typically experienced as more of a cerebral high. Best enjoyed in the daytime.

Indica: Associated with relaxed, euphoric and sleep-inducing effects. Typically experienced as a full-body high. Best enjoyed in the evening.

Hybrid: Cross-bred strains from both indica and sativa plants. Associated with  both indica and sativa effects.  


Edibles

Satisfy your sweet tooth with edibles that come in all shapes & sizes!

Edibles are cannabis-infused food and beverages.

Dosing cannabis edibles is an experience unique to each user, everyone's metabolism is different. That means it might take some experimentation to find the perfect dose.

We suggest starting small with no more than 5mg of any cannabinoid. Wait at least two hours to feel the full effects before consuming more. If you have not achieved the desired effect after 2 hours, take another 5mg dose and wait 2 additional hours for full effects. Tip: Record your edible intake on your phone or in a notebook so you can easily track what worked for you and what didn't.  

Examples of common edibles are cookies, gummies, chocolates, honey and sparkling beverages.

The short answer is anywhere between 30 minutes to 6 hours. The peak of an edible high usually lasts between 1-3 hours. The long answer? Intensity and duration of a high will vary depending on body chemistry, consumption method, personal tolerance and dose. 

When consuming cannabis edibles, your body metabolizes THC through the liver and bloodstream so the onset of effects can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours.

Both smoking and cooking cannabis activates the cannabinoids responsible for getting you high. However, when edibles are metabolized, your body turns THCA into 11-hydroxy-THC, while smoking creates Delta-9 THC. 11-hydroxy-THC is known to induce a heavier, more sedative high compared to Delta-9 THC, which is why some people find edibles to be a more intense, physical experience.

While smoking cannabis has immediate effects, consuming edibles requires anywhere between 30 minutes to 3 hours to feel the onset of effects. 

Tinctures

Drink it, drop it, top it with tinctures and THC.

Tinctures are cannabis extracts that can be consumed topically, sublingually, or added to a beverage. Alcohol, coconut oil, MCT oil, and olive oil are often used as a solvent to extract cannabinoids from the rest of the plant to create a tincture. Tinctures are considered a form of edible but most can also be used topically.

Tinctures can be taken under the tongue, or sublingually, using a dropper to dose. They can also be added to foods and drinks such as mocktails, smoothies, coffee, salad dressings, or soup. Alcohol-based tinctures are not recommended for use under the tongue but are best for mixing into food or beverages as they are generally water-soluble. Oil-based tinctures are best used sublingually or mixed into oil-based foods and drinks.

Most tinctures come with a dropper that makes measuring out the dosage very simple. Start with the lowest dose, drop under the tongue, hold for 1-3 minutes, and swallow. When taking a tincture sublingually, the effects will onset within 15-20 minutes. When mixing tinctures into food or beverages, the onset of effects will take between 1 and 3 hours due to the digestion process.

Tinctures are faster acting than most edibles. The onset of effects can be almost immediate, kicking in within 15-30 minutes and lasting anywhere from 4-8 hours.

Oil, Concentrates & Extracts

Experience cannabis as concentrates and consume the way you want to.

Concentrate is an umbrella term used to describe any product created by processing cannabis flowers into a condensed form. This includes concentrates made with and without solvents. An extract is the result of a solvent being used to remove the cannabinoid and terpene-rich trichome heads from cannabis plant biomass (plant material) and concentrating them together into a mass.  

Types of Concentrates:

Bubble, Cold Water, Full Melt Hash: Created without solvents by mechanically separating different grades of pure trichomes from the plant material in an ice bath with mesh bags and forming the resulting material into mass.

Kief: Trichomes and plant material that are used to create hash and rosin. Kief is what accumulates in the bottom of your grinder.

Rosin: Created without solvents by drawing out resin from the flower with high pressure and usually low heat.

Shatter: Butane is used as a solvent to extract THC from the flower resulting in a glass-like appearance and hard candy consistency.

Sugar: Also created using butane as a solvent to create a concentrate that has a sticky and crumbly consistency.

Budder: Butane is used as a solvent to create a consistency between shatter and wax. Budder’s softer consistency makes it easier to use although it generally has fewer cannabinoids and terpenes.

Live Resin: Made similarly to sugar and shatter with butane or other solvents, the word "live" specifies that the plant material used for this concentrate was fresh frozen right after harvest. This preserves far more cannabinoids and terpenes than a normal extraction with cured plant material does. Live resin tends to be more potent and flavorful since more cannabinoids and terpenes are preserved in the process. 

RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) or FECO (Full Extract Cannabis Oil): Alcohol is used as a solvent to extract a full spectrum of cannabinoids from the flower to create a dark, plant-rich oil that is very versatile.

Distillate: Made using a process called CO2 Critical Extraction that uses CO2 as a solvent to turn pure biomass into a highly concentrated oil that is used most often in cartridges and edibles because of its high viscosity and low flavor profile.

Cannabis concentrates are mainly extracted in two different ways.

1. Solventless: This method uses high temperatures and pressure or ice water and a series of mesh bags to mechanically separate trichomes from the plant material without the use of solvents.

2. Solvent-based: This method utilizes Co2 or Hydrocarbons like butane to chemically separate cannabinoids from the plant material.

Once extracted, the product can be processed into other forms and concentrated further. These extracts contain many of the same compounds as the original flower but in different proportions.

Just as there are many different forms of cannabis concentrates, there are just as many ways to enjoy them! Dabbing is the most common method, which involves heating a cannabis concentrate to the point of vaporization. You can use a dab rig or vape pen to do so. Concentrates can be added to joints, blunts, or bowls as well to increase the potency of your flower. Many concentrates can be eaten, as well. RSO/FECO, distillate, hash, and live resin are all used by edible companies to create a variety of products.
