It’s a complex plant,
so let’s start with the basics…
We say “she,” because the cannabis we consume comes exclusively from the buds of female flowers. (Sorry, guys.)
Cannabis flower “buds” are covered in resinous trichomes, which hold the plants’ medicinal compounds and aromas—a.k.a, the good stuff that makes us feel stuff!
Cannabis plants come in infinite varieties, but they all fall into three main subspecies…
Leaf shape is just one of the many ways to identify each.
We don’t call Ruderalis cannabis; we call it “Hemp.”
Hemp plants are naturally very low in THC. Sativa and Indica plants contain varying amounts of THC, and this is the type of cannabis that we're focused on here.
…they each contain different compounds, in varying amounts.
There are also dozens of different terpenes!
are what give cannabis its intense aromas and flavors. Terpenes play a huge role in how your mind and body experience cannabis!
For example: A flower that's dominant in the terpene called Linalool will produce a much different effect than one that’s high in Limonene.
Many people enjoy flower as is, cured (dried) in its natural state. To feel its effects, you must “activate” the cannabinoids by applying heat. This is why people smoke cannabis; eating it raw won’t do the trick.
Yet inhalation isn’t the only way to enjoy the flower. It can be processed and concentrated into a variety of different products. Thanks to modern technology, it can be vaped, dissolved under the tongue, swallowed in a capsule, enjoyed in a food or beverage… and the list goes on!
How it’s consumed will alter your experience, so choose wisely. Not sure what to choose? No worries! That’s why we’re here.
No matter what component of cannabis you explore, there are choices to make.
And, not to complicate things further, but… cannabis isn’t one-size-fits-all.
What works for one person might not work for you. That’s why we take a personalized approach to pairing people and products. It’s about finding just the right product to help you meet your unique cannabis goals.
