There are four main varieties of the cannabis plant that are used for both recreational and medicinal purposes:
- Cannabis sativa
- Cannabis indica
- Cannabis ruderalis
- Hybrids (typically produced using Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica varieties)
Methods for consuming cannabis include inhalation (smoking, vaping), ingestion and topical application; inhalation usually produces quicker effects while ingestion results in stronger effects that may take longer to surface.
Warning: If ingesting cannabis, be aware that because it takes longer to enter the bloodstream, it takes longer for the effects to surface. This can lead to the consumption of more cannabis than intended, which can result in a much stronger intoxication than intended.
CBD and THC are two naturally-occurring chemical compounds, referred to as cannabinoids, found in the cannabis plant.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the cannabinoid most associated with the psychoactive and intoxicating effects of cannabis.
Unlike THC, Cannabidiol (CBD) does not produce any psychoactive effects. This quality makes CBD an appealing option for those who are looking for relief from pain and other symptoms.
The effects of cannabis vary depending on several factors. Some common effects of cannabis can include pain relief, reduced anxiety, increased creativity and an increased appetite.
