Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between Sativa, Indica & Hybrid?
There are three basic categories of Cannabis which are known as Sativa, Indica & Hybrid.
Sativa – During the growth cycle Sativa tends to be a taller and slower growing plant. They often smell sweet, sour, pungent and/or fruity. The effects of Sativa are generally/mostly cerebral, often providing a feeling of optimism, energy and well-being.
Indica – During the growth cycle Indica plants tend to be short-to-moderate in height and bushy in structure. They often smell piney, skunky, gaseous and earthy. The effects of indica are often described as creating a pleasant body buzz which is great for relaxation, stress relief, and a sense of calm and serenity.
Hybrid – When a Sativa plant is cross-bred with an Indica plant the result is a hybrid cannabis plant – often containing both the Sativa and Indica properties/effects. This is the widest category of cannabis, with nearly an infinite number of hybrid choices available.
What are the different consumption methods?
Inhalation is the fastest method of delivery to the consumer. Most consumers prefer using marijuana this way. When a consumer inhales marijuana, the majority of cannabinoids enter the body through the lungs where they are passed along directly into the consumer’s blood stream. The effect is almost instantaneous. For some people who use marijuana medicinally, this makes inhalation is very effective–similar to the use of an inhaler for an asthma attack.
Marijuana can also be ingested orally. This can be in the form of edibles, tinctures, capsules or oils. The onset for oral ingestion is slower and the effects are stronger and last longer than with inhalation. People who consume marijuana orally usually report feeling the effects within thirty minutes to one hour or longer, with peak effects around the two hour mark and total duration of effects ranging as long as six hours.
A final way to consume marijuana is through topical applications. These come in the form of lotions, salves, bath salts and oils that are applied to the skin. The skin has a relatively complex absorption process that is based on a chemical’s ability to dissolve in H20. The cannabinoids penetrate the skin and work to reduce pain and inflammation. This method is very popular with older consumers because it works well on localized pain (like from arthritis) and is non-psychoactive.
