Frequently Asked Marijuana Questions
Marijuana, also known as cannabis, weed, and pot, is a psychoactive drug that is derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. It is known to produce a variety of effects on the user, including relaxation, euphoria, and altered perception of time and space. Marijuana can be smoked, vaporized, ingested, or applied topically. In some areas, it is legal for medical or recreational use.
Cannabis flower is the dried and cured bud of a female cannabis plant. It is the most common form of cannabis and is typically smoked, vaporized, or incorporated into food and drinks. Cannabis flower can contain varying amounts of the psychoactive compound THC, as well as other compounds like CBD, CBG, and terpenes.
Cannabis flower typically contains 10-30% THC, depending on the strain and growing conditions. However, some strains can have higher THC levels, up to 30-35%. Always read the label and test a small amount first. Increase over time.
Cannabis concentrates are products that are made from extracting the psychoactive compounds from cannabis plants. Concentrates can come in the form of oils, waxes, and other forms of extracts. They typically contain higher levels of THC and other compounds than cannabis flower and can be consumed via vaping, smoking, or ingestion.
Cannabis concentrates can have varying levels of THC, depending on the extraction method used. Generally, cannabis concentrates can have a THC content ranging from 40-90%, with some extracts containing up to 99% THC. Always read the label and test a small amount first. Increase over time.
Cannabis or marijuana vaping is the act of inhaling vaporized cannabis oil through a device such as a vape pen or box mod. Vaping cannabis oil can provide a more potent and immediate effect than smoking flower because the THC is already activated and more quickly absorbed by the lungs.
Vaping cannabis is relatively simple. First, you need to choose and purchase a vape device. Then, fill the device with cannabis oil or pre-filled cartridges and adjust the settings as needed. Once the device is ready, press the button to activate the device and start inhaling the vapor. The most common types of vape devices for cannabis are vape pens and box mods. Vape pens are smaller and more compact, while box mods provide more power and control over the vaping experience. Both types of devices typically use refillable tanks or pre-filled cartridges.
The amount of THC in edibles can vary widely depending on the product. Generally, edibles can contain anywhere from 5-100mg of THC per serving. However, it is important to check the label to make sure you know exactly how much THC is in each serving. Always read the label and test a small amount first. Increase over time.
