Five Simple (But Important) Things to Remember About Cannabis

If you don’t know much about cannabis, here are the five simple (but still very important!) things you should know.

1. The difference between sativa and indica strains.

In a cannabis crash course, this will likely be one of the first lessons you’ll receive.

When you’re talking about different kinds of cannabis products, they’re usually divided into three categories that you’ve likely heard of before: sativa, indica, and hybrid.

A sativa is perfect for when you want to stay active, get creative, and be productive.

An indica is great for when you want to relax, chill out, and eventually go to sleep.

And a hybrid is just a combination of the two effects.

When you’re talking to your budtender about cannabis and ask about a particular hybrid strain, they will be able to tell you whether that strain is leaning toward being a little bit more sativa or indica dominant.

2. The difference between THC and CBD.

We all know how popular CBD has become just in the last year or so.

But what is it really? And why is it so popular?

CBD is a naturally occurring part of cannabis, much like THC, but they couldn’t be more different.

To put it simply, THC is the chemical that gets you high.

But CBD has an entirely different thing.

CBD carries powerful medicinal benefits without actually getting you high.

That’s why so many athletes, seniors, healing people and more love CBD so much. It’s all of the pain-relief without any of the “side effects” that you get with typical cannabis consumption.

3. That there’s more than one way to experience cannabis.

Long gone are the days that a joint is your only option.

There are cannabis products for people who don’t like smoke, who want to be discreet, who want to get high, who don’t want to get high, and so many more options.

Edibles, vape pens, and topicals have gained much popularity over the last couple of years, and there are even more cannabis methods that people are flocking to.

As soon as you step foot into a dispensary, you’ll quickly realize that there’s a little something for everyone.

4. There are countless medicinal benefits.

Many of us have experienced the pain-relieving and stress-relieving effects of cannabis, but did you know that there are many other conditions that cannabis has been approved to treat in many states around the country?

Some of those conditions include AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, glaucoma, migraines, seizures, and many more.

Even if you’re perfectly healthy, chances are, cannabis may be able to help your health in one way or another.

5. Anyone 21+ can purchase cannabis legally, safely, and easily right here in Sacramento.
