Types and Forms of Marijuana Products
Marijuana products come in different types and forms, such as Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid strains, as well as flower, concentrates, edibles, tinctures, and topicals. Each type and form can produce different effects and benefits, so it’s important to understand them before consuming. It’s also important to consider individual tolerance and potential side effects.
Cannabis flower is the dried, cured bud of the cannabis plant, and is the most commonly consumed form of marijuana. The flower contains cannabinoids such as THC and CBD, which can produce a variety of effects, such as relaxation, euphoria, and pain relief. Cannabis flower can be consumed through smoking, vaporizing, or by making edibles and concentrates. It’s essential to know the strain, potency, and dosage before consuming, and to purchase from a reputable source to ensure quality and safety.
Pre-rolled joints are packaged and sold in marijuana dispensaries—it’s a joint that someone else has rolled for you. Pre-rolls have become the preferred term, but many cannabis consumers still refer to them as “joint.”
Although you can roll your own joints at manually home, most dispensaries use a machine, ensuring a more consistent fill. Pre-rolls are crafted using thin paper, often rice, wood pulp or hemp, and include a paper filter tip.
Smoking isn’t for everyone. For those who require long-lasting effects, we supply a variety of edibles, ranging from marijuana gummies to hard candies, baked goods to beverages. To suit all user needs and preferences, marijuana edibles are available in a wide variety of THC, high-THC and THC/CBD formulations.
Concentrates are just that – concentrated forms of THC and/or CBD, typically consumed with the use of a vaporizer. Solvent-free concentrates use a solvent, typically ethanol, BHO or CO2, to extract the beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes, becoming solvent-free when the solvent is removed in a purging process. Solventless concentrates are produced without the use of solvents by using heat and pressure to extract the desired components. The resulting extracts are manipulated to form Shatter, Crumble, THCA Diamonds, Rosin and more.
Cannabis Vape Products
Vaping is an effective alternative to combusting marijuana flower. Marijuana oils are heated to the point of vaporization, with the exhaled vapor often emitting little to no tell-tale cannabis scent. Like flower, vaping offers immediate onset of effects, with cartridges available in a variety of indica, sativa and hybrid options.
Marijuana topicals are ideal for localized pain relief. Due to the fat solubility of cannabinoids, the THC and/or CBD of marijuana lotions, gels, creams and balms dissipate in the upper layers of the skin. This option is ideal for customers who need the analgesic effects of cannabis in a localized area, as the THC is incapable of reaching the bloodstream.
