For some people, walking into a legal cannabis shop and going up to the counter is an intimidating experience. If you are one of these people, buying cannabis online is perfect for you.
Lately, online dispensaries in Canada have increased in number, and due to competition, they are offering more selection, better products, excellent service, and reasonable prices. However, since you can access just about any product you are looking for, choosing the right dispensary can be kind of a difficult task.
Cannabis Basics Everyone Should Know
What is Cannabis?
Cannabis (marijuana) is a psychoactive drug deriving from the Cannabis Sativa plant. Cannabis consumers separate marijuana strains into three categories: Indica, Sativa, and hybrid. Now, you may wonder what the difference between these cannabis types is. Majority cannabis consumers say that Indica strains are physically sedating, perfect for relaxing. Sativas provide energetic, uplifting cerebral effects that pair well with physical activity and creative projects. And hybrids are thought to fall somewhere in between, offering a balance of the effects of both.
However, this division is made based on what the majority of consumers experience. If you look at the chemical components like terpenes and cannabinoids – there aren’t apparent patterns to explain why one type is sedating and the other uplifting.
The cannabis plant contains a vast number of compounds (at least 113 identified) called cannabinoids. Most famous among them are the mind-altering chemical Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). THC is the most widely-known cannabinoid and is found in high concentrations in most marijuana strains. This compound causes the famous “high” feeling. CBD is non-psychoactive and balances the effects of THC. Some medical marijuana users prefer CBD to treat their symptoms because of the minimized feelings of euphoria in strains offering higher CBD content.
