What are terpenes?
Terpenes are fragrant oils that give cannabis its aromatic diversity. They’re what give Blueberry its signature berry smell, Sour Diesel its funky fuel flavor, and Lavender its sweet floral aroma. These oils are secreted in the flower’s sticky resin glands, the same ones that produce THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids. Terpenes are by no means unique to cannabis; they can be found in many other herbs, fruits, and plants as well. Like cannabinoids, terpenes bind to receptors in the brain and give rise to various effects.
INDICA or SATIVA?
Indica strains are known for being physically sedating, perfect for relaxing with a movie or as a nightcap before bed. Sativas typically provide more invigorating, uplifting cerebral effects that pair well with physical activity, social gatherings, and creative projects. Hybrids tend to fall somewhere in between the indica-sativa spectrum, depending on the traits they inherit from their parent strains. Now, this is a generalization of what the classification of indica, sativa, and hybrid stands for. Marijuana affects everyone differently, but for the majority of people all these definitions stand true to their meaning.
What is CBD?
CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, the cannabinoid second only to THC when it comes to average volume. Recently, research has shown CBD to have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety properties without the psychoactive effects (the “high” or “stoned” feeling) that THC provides. While high THC strains often tout levels of over 20%, generally, CBD levels of over 4% are considered to be high.
It was initially thought that cannabidiol’s main function was to counter the psychoactive effects of THC, but more evidence seems to show that medically, CBD packs quite a punch on its own. It looks to be especially promising for conditions that are difficult to treat such as Crohn’s disease, PTSD, and multiple sclerosis.
What are concentrates?
“Concentrate” is becoming an ambiguous word in the cannabis industry. To be blunt, concentrates refer to the extraction of the cannabis flower, which in turn becomes a type of hash oil or other form of hash. Hash over the years has become more complex and therefore hash is not what it once was. In the beginning, bubble hash was the common thing to see around, and it still is very much in demand. What most patients look for are hash oils (for vape pens) or shatters/sugars/waxes. The best way to use concentrates is to have a vaporizer pen or dab rig (a bong which is specifically designed for consuming concentrates).
