From therapeutic properties to active ingredients and consumption methods, learn everything you need to know to comfortably begin using cannabis.
Cannabis And Symptom Management
The use of cannabis dates back thousands of years—with its medicinal properties long understood by ancient civilizations.
Cannabis may provide benefits across a wide variety of conditions.
Active Ingredients of Cannabis
Cannabis contains many active ingredients, most notably cannabinoids and terpenes. When these components interact with the body, (the endocannabinoid system or ECS), their effects are unleashed.
It’s All About the Experience
Cannabis can be enjoyed in a number of different ways—each with its own effect. We’re here to help you choose the method best suited for your needs.
Inhaling cannabis is the most conventional method of ingestion. Smoking is a quick and effective method of ingestion, with peak effects being felt within 10 – 15 minutes. Vaporizing is an efficient and increasingly popular way of heating the flower to just below combustion temperatures, reducing combustion by-products.
Edibles come in many forms, from ingredients you cook with to prepared products you eat and drink. Ingestion typically results in a slower onset. The effects can also be longer lasting, anywhere from 3 – 8 hours for some people.
Absorbed through the skin, creams and oils react locally and have quick release times.
Wet, Dry Or Delicious
