Q How does medical cannabis work?

Medical cannabis works through the endocannabinoid system, which regulates physical and mental processes in the body. The natural compounds found in cannabis called “cannabinoids” interact with the endocannabinoid system to help maintain a state of balance, or “homeostasis,” in the mind and body by influencing how cells communicate with each other. For example, cannabinoids interact with the regulation of appetite, immune system functions and pain management.

Q What are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are compounds that interact with receptors in the endocannabinoid system – which has an important role in regulatory functions throughout the human body. Cannabinoids produced by the body are called “endocannabinoids”, and those produced by plants like cannabis are called “phytocannabinoids”. Cannabinoids are the compounds in the cannabis plant responsible for physiological effects of cannabis. To date, more than 104 cannabinoids have been identified in the plant, of which THC and CBD are the most well-known.

Q What are THC and CBD?

THC and CBD are the two most well-known cannabinoids with higher concentration in the cannabis plant. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. CBD is a cannabinoid that has many potential medical benefits without the lethargic or potential euphoric effects of THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is the most famous cannabinoid. It is the cannabinoid responsible for potential euphoric effects from cannabis.

The following table summarizes the potential medical benefits of THC and CBD:

Q What is the difference between sativa, indica and hybrid strains?

Indica and sativa are terms used to describe different types of cannabis plants. Sativa plants have narrower leaves and taller structure, while indica plants have wider leaves and a shorter, bushier structure.

It is rare to find a strain that is 100% sativa or indica, as most strains are a combination of the two, so we refer to this broad category as a hybrid. A hybrid can be indica or sativa dominant depending on the genetics. Anecdotally, indica strains are most commonly associated with calming effects and pain relief, while sativas are usually associated with more uplifting effects.

The effect of a strain has more to do with the overall composition of its compounds, including cannabinoids, and how they respond with the user’s unique body. For this reason, clinicians tend to focus more on the compounds in the cannabis plant, such as THC and CBD, to control patient symptoms – and sativa or indica simply refer to the general appearance of the plant.

Q What are terpenes?

Terpenes are the aromatic oils that provide the distinctive smells of each cannabis strain. Terpenes may also have unique health benefits. For more information on terpenes, click here.

Q Is Hemp oil the same as CBD oil?

Hemp oil can contain CBD; however, it is processed and manufactured quite differently. Hemp oil is mainly industrial and has an increased chance of contamination because it does not have to abide by the strict regulations of Health Canada. Most hemp oil is manufactured from pushing the oil out of the seeds.

The yields are much smaller and require a larger material input to get a similar product. Hemp oils are mainly for topical use and not oral ingestion. Industrial hemp is often used to clean up toxic spills because it is a bio-accumulator, meaning it’s great at drawing toxins from the soil. This means you could be ingesting toxins leached from the earth where your industrial hemp-derived CBD was grown. Additionally, the carrier oil we use for our CBD oil is of a higher grade than that of low-cost hemp oils. Learn more about the difference between hemp and CBD oils here.
