The healing properties of cannabis have been known for quite some time. References to cannabis, and its therapeutic use, date back ancient China, where it was used as a medicine to bring balance to the body, and also as an anesthetic. Cannabis was even introduced into the U.S. Pharmacopoeia in 1854.
The consumption of edibles is a discreet and simple way to get your dose of cannabis. A little goes a long way with these tasty treats, and for those who cannot tolerate smoke for whatever reason- allergies, asthma, etc.- edibles let you still experiment into the world of ganja, without some of the negative side effects that can arise from long-term smoking. Even though cannabis is known to be incredibly medicinal, it is a common fact that the act of smoking anything can be detrimental over long periods of time.
An extract or concentrate is any oil that concentrates the chemical compounds of the cannabis plant, like THC and CBD. Cannabis oil extracts refer to concentrates that retain transparency throughout the extraction process. The results are highly potent cannabis products of varying consistencies commonly used for dabbing or vaping.
Cannabis Flower refers to the smokable section of the cannabis plant, also known as nuggets, nugs, or bud. In the common parlance of combusting cannabis, users grind Flower before smoking, packing, or decarbing it as ground cannabis burns more evenly and can be much more easily manipulated, be it in a bowl or measured in a cup and poured onto a baking sheet.
Pre-rolls have become a staple on dispensary counters. They have taken the prep work out of rolling a joint and offer a convenient way to spark up when you’re on the go. The pre-roll is a great way to taste test a strain without having to buy a large quantity of buds. If you haven’t yet perfected the art of rolling your own joint, the pre-roll is the simple solution.
Cannabis tinctures, also known as green or golden dragon, are alcohol-based cannabis extracts – essentially, infused alcohol. In fact, tinctures were the main form of cannabis medicine until the United States enacted cannabis prohibition. With a name like “green dragon,” you might think cannabis tinctures are not for the faint of heart, but they’re actually a great entry point for both recreational and medical users looking to ease into smokeless consumption methods.
Topicals are cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation. Because they’re non-intoxicating, topicals are often chosen by patients who want the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the cerebral euphoria associated with other delivery methods. Other transdermal innovations are fast arriving in the cannabis market, including long-lasting patches and tingly lubricants for patients and recreational consumers alike.
When it comes to ease of use, portability, and functionality, one cannabis product stands tall above the rest. You may know them as pre-loaded cannabis oil vape cartridges, hash oil vape pens, or even disposable wax pens. These relatively new and exciting devices have permeated the cannabis concentrate market over the last several years, quickly becoming the go-to concentrate-based product for both the novice and accustomed cannabis fans.
