Cannabis for beginners (cannabis 101)

Cannabis: A tall plant with a stiff upright stem, divided serrated leaves, and glandular hairs. It is used to produce hemp fiber and as a psychotropic drug in extract, ingestible, or smokable.

People use cannabis for health and wellness, to boost creativity, relax, inspire, socialize, energize and improve focus. It’s an affordable and natural way to maintain balance between your body’s essential functions like eating, sleeping, and healing.

Cannabinoids are chemicals found in cannabis. The most notable cannabinoid is the phytocannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. Cannabidiol (CBD) is another major constituent of the plant. THC is the cannabinoid that is primarily referred to, this compound is responsible for the “high” or “stone”

Marijuana: A dried preparation of leaves and female flowers of the hemp plant. Used as a psychotropic, recreational and medical drug.

Kinds of Cannabis: Cannabis plants come in two main classifications.; Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica. The first thing a new user will pick up is which of the two they prefer…

INDICA :produce marijuana strains that give you a deep body high, often making you sleepy or “couch-locked”. Indica strains tend to have broad leaflets that often overlap. These strain types are perfect for a restful evening.

SATIVA :produce marijuana strains that give you a creative and uplifting “mind high”. Sativa strains have more narrow, spaced leaflets. These strain types are best suited during the day. HYBRID : of the two plants create strains that combine benefits of both classifications and are directly influenced by the individual genetics of the plant. The resulting amount of choice is incredible. Hybrid strains   fall into the following categories:

Indica Dominant- Excellent for taking the edge off, and a more body focused stone.

Even- Strains that have an equal between a cerebral and body relaxing high.

Sativa Dominant- Energetic strains that boost focus and creativity without putting you to sleep.
