Know The Compounds

THC

Tetrahydrocannabinol

Most psychoactive compound that provides pain relief, may reduce aggression, can stimulate appetite, and reduce nausea.

Causes a “high” leading to an altered perception of time and space. It also can create feelings of happiness or fatique.

CBD

Cannabidiol

Non-psychoactive compound offering relief for a wide range of symptoms including pain, anxiety, inflammation, seizures, MS, PTSD and more.

CBN

Cannabinol

Pronounced sedative properties aiding in pain relief and insomnia, with little to no psychoactive effects.

CBC

Cannabichromene

Has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and very promising antibiotic properties.

Terpenes

Over 100 different terpenes have been identified in the cannabis plant. They give cannabis varieties their smell and taste with distinctive flavors like citrus, berry, mint, and pine. Terpenes also help account for the unique effects induced by each cannabis strain by modifying how much THC passes through the blood-brain barrier.

Ways to Smoke

Joint | Pipe | Water Bong | Vape Pen

To avoid inhaling smoke, a vaporizer “vape pen” can be used. These devices contain a battery-powered heating element that vaporizes concentrated cannabis oils, waxes or dry herbs. It pulls the active ingredients (including compounds like THC and CBD) from the marijuana and collects the vapor in a storage unit. That vapor is then inhaled until the desired effect is reached.
