Weed 101

Weed 101

Feeling clueless about cannabis? In the dark about the green? Here’s some 101 level information for the newcomer to cannabis.

There are two main varietals of cannabis which determine the affect cannabis will have on the consumer. Sativas are known to give a “head high” and are popular for daytime use or social situations. Indicas are known to give a “body high” and are typically preferred for mental/physical relaxation. Simply stated, sativa leaning strains are great for daytime use and creative purposes, indica leaning strains will provide a relaxing high, great for pain relief or nighttime use. Very few strains are truly 100 indica or sativa at this time.
Hybrids of indicas and sativas blend the benefits of both classifications and can be either Indica-Dominant, Sativa-Dominant or a pure 50/50 hybrid.
As Wiz Khalifa says, “All Kush isn’t Kush.” Different strains have different effects, which is why you should experiment with various strains to see what you like the best.
Be the host with the most. If you’re treating, it’s polite to load the bowl.
Cannabis is sold in grams, usually in fractions of ounces.
In the words of Smokey in ‘Friday’: “Puff, puff, give.” Don’t be greedy with the green.
Popular forms of the consuming the herb include flower (smoking or vaporizing), edibles and concentrates.
It’s best to store your marijuana in a childproof, airtight container and out of the sun to keep it fresh.
There is no specific answer on how long weed will stay in your system – it affects everyone differently, and the length of time it stays in your system depends on usage and your lifestyle.
Most importantly, never ever consume cannabis and drive. Life is short enough already!

Until next time – In Cannabis Veritas!
