Q What exactly is Cannabis?

Cannabis is a drug used for both recreational and medicinal purposes. Cannabis is sourced from the flowers, buds and leaves of the cannabis plant. The primary ingredient in Cannabis is delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly referred to as THC. It is the aspect of the plant that delivers the high, as it’s often called. THC potency varies dramatically in cannabis products.

Q Is there a difference between cannabis, marijuana, weed or pot?

Different names for the same substance though cannabis is the preferred usage.

Q Are there different varieties of Cannabis?

Cannabis is derived from two different varieties of plant. The first, Cannabis Sativa, is a tall plant with thin leaves with a chemical known to produce an energetic, uplifting mood when consumed. Cannabis Indica is a shorter, denser plant known to have a mellow, calming effect on the user. Hybrids can feature characteristics of both the Sativa and Indica plants.

Q Is there a difference between THC and CBD?

Cannabis is derived from two different varieties of plant. The first, Cannabis Sativa, is a tall plant with thin leaves with a chemical known to produce an energetic, uplifting mood when consumed. Cannabis Indica is a shorter, denser plant known to have a mellow, calming effect on the user. Hybrids can feature characteristics of both the Sativa and Indica plants.

Both are chemical compounds but produce different effects. THC – short for Tetrahydrocannabinol – produces euphoria or the feeling of being high. CBD – short for Cannabidiol – has less psychoactive effects and has been found effective for pain control. Some studies suggest that when the percentage of CBD is higher than that of THC, the effects of THC are lessened.

Q Will more Cannabis products be available in years to come?

Additional products such as edibles and cannabis concentrates will be available later in 2019, once the Cannabis Act has been in force for one full year.

Q Can I grow Cannabis at home and if so how much?

As the law stands, each household will be allowed to cultivate up to 4 plants. Keep in mind, there may be restrictions imposed by your landlord if you’re a renter or by-laws brought down by your condo association. Be sure to check before you start cultivating cannabis.

Q What sort of Cannabis products do you sell?

Greentown only sells fresh, safe, quality products! You’ll find a variety of cannabis products including dried flower, milled flower, pre-rolls, capsules and oils. The dried and milled flower can be smoked or eaten with food. Pre-rolls (cannabis cigarettes) are rolled for your convenience and ready to smoke. Oils can be ingested or consumed in either food or drink. Capsules are taken orally. Commercially made edibles are not legal to sell right now, but you can certainly create edibles for your personal use.

Q Considerations when purchasing Cannabis

Cannabis today is not the same herb popular in the 1960s. A few decades back, the average THC level was closer to 3.5 per cent of the compound. Today, that level can be as high as 20 per cent or more. It’s important to get a sense of the level of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in the product you’re buying. THC is the primary psychoactive in the cannabis. The higher the THC, the stronger the psychoactive experience. Some products are higher in CBD (Cannabidiol) which, unlike THC, does not produce a psychoactive high. The higher the CBD, the less psychoactive the experience. Strains high in both THC and CBD will produce a milder experience.

There are a variety of choices available today, and if you’re unfamiliar with the options, the knowledgeable staff at Greentown will be happy to explain the choices available. And even if you’re familiar with the product, it might be time for a fun and fascinating refresher. Remember, Greentown sells only high quality, fresh, safe cannabis and cannabis products.

Q How do I know if I am purchasing quality cannabis?

The best and easiest way to determine the quality of a cannabis flower is through smell. Trust your nose. Fresh, quality products – the only type sold at Greentown – will have a strong fragrance. High-quality cannabis should be slightly sticky to the touch and should break easily without crumbling. Cannabis that’s too dry will fall apart easily.

Fresh cannabis flowers will be colourful with prominent reds, purples, blues and greens. If the cannabis is an unattractive brown/green, it is no longer fresh and should be avoided.

The best way to know that you’re getting a quality product is to patronize a quality retailer, such as Greentown Cannabis where fresh, safe, high-quality products are guaranteed.

Q CBD/THC Ratios

Finding the right CBD to THC ratio will help you to experience the greatest benefit from cannabis. So, whether you’re experienced with cannabis or trying it for the first time, a basic understanding of how CBD/THC ratios will help you achieve the results you desire.

The amount of THC and CBD contained within any form of cannabis depends upon the formulation whether that be a smokable flower, capsules or oil. The optimal ratio will vary depending upon an individual’s physiology, state-of-health and cannabis tolerance.

THC dominate options (0:1) will deliver a varying degree of psychoactivity which can be reduced by introducing CBD. A 1:3 ratio of CBD to THC results in moderate psychoactivity, increased relaxation, greater appetite along with claims of reduced inflammation.

A ratio of equal parts of CBD to THC (1:1) is considered most effective for relief of pain, lessening of anxiety, insomnia and nausea resulting from certain medical treatments. A 1:1 ratio is a good starting point for individuals who want to experience cannabis for the first time.

Higher CBD options offer little psychoactivity but may be beneficial for curbing anxiety, depression and reducing stress. For honest advice and more information on understanding CBD/THC ratios, speak with the friendly, knowledgeable staff at Greentown.
