Cannabis 101 (aka: Marijuana, Weed, Pot, Herb, Grass, Ganja)
Cannabis is an annual flowering plant in the Cannabis genus. Humans have harvested it throughout time for industrial fiber, oil, recreation, spiritual pursuits, and as medicine. Cannabis is categorized into two types for consumption: Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica. These plants contain cannabinoids, which are the active ingredients in cannabis. The most commonly known cannabinoids are THC, CBD, and CBN.
THC is is the principal cannabinoid of the cannabis plant and produces majority of the psychoactive effects associated with marijuana.
CBD – (Cannabidiol)
CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, thought to be primarily responsible for body pain relief.
CBN – (Cannabinol)
CBN is a psychoactive cannabinoid occurring after the degradation of THC, generally resulting in drowsiness.

What are the California state laws regarding cannabis?
The sale of cannabis in California is strictly regulated and it’s important for everyone to Know the Law. While it is legal for anyone 21 and over to purchase cannabis from a licensed recreational marijuana business, it is illegal to:
- Give marijuana to minors
- Sell marijuana unless you are a licensed business
- Drive under the influence of marijuana
- Consume marijuana in public
- Take marijuana out of the state
It is also legal to purchase cannabis for California residents 18 years or older who have obtained a doctor’s recommendation.
What is the difference between Sativa and Indica?
Traditionally, Cannabis Sativa is used during the daytime due to its high THC levels and its cerebral, uplifting effects. Sativa use commonly results in appetite stimulation, creativity enhancement, and an uplifted mood.
Cannabis Indica is often used at night, as its effects tend to be more sedative, relaxing, and aiding in body pain and anxiety relief. These reactions are attributed to higher ratios of CBD: THC.
Cannabis Hybrids are crossbreeds of sativa and indica strains that display characteristics of both plants. Hybrid plants are usually sativa or indica dominant and are genetically bred according to the desired traits.
What are the various forms of cannabis?
Cannabis is a flowering plant. The flower can be smoked or vaporized. It can also be extracted into a concentrated form. To produce concentrated forms of cannabis, a solvent or solvent-less extraction method is used, resulting in oil, hash, or wax. These products can be smoked, vaporized, or infused into food and topical products.
For more information read the Cannabis Concentrates Guide.
How is cannabis used?
Smoking/Vaporizing: The flower of cannabis can be ground and smoked out of a pipe, water pipe, or rolled into a joint. The flower can also be used with a vaporizer, heating the marijuana to a temperature lower than its combustion level yet high enough to activate the cannabinoids; this is a good option for users who do not want to inhale smoke. The onset of the effects of smoking and vaporizing cannabis is immediate.
Edibles: Concentrated forms of cannabis can be infused into food products. Once eaten, the active ingredients metabolize in the body through the gastrointestinal system. There are dairy-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, nut-free, and gmo-free edibles available. When using this form of cannabis, the onset of the effects is typically delayed and lasts longer in the body. Edibles can have varying effects on each person. It is necessary to find a milligram dosage that works best for you. It is recommended to start off with a smaller dose and increase as your tolerance permits.
Tinctures: Glycerine-based or alcohol extracted. Commonly used orally, and placed under the tongue (sublingually) or mixed with tea and ingested.
Topicals: The topical use of cannabis can provide anti-inflammatory benefits when applied locally. It is also used to relieve arthritis, as well as joint and muscle pain. This form of use does not induce psychoactive effects.
How do I determine the proper dosage?
Concentrated forms of cannabis are measured into milligrams (mg). For people with a low tolerance, a recommended starting dose is 5-10mg.
