FLOWER 101

Cannabis plants can be male, female, or both. The female plants produce the resin secreting flowers that are trimmed down to the buds that are seen, smoked, and consumed. 


Cannabis strains are generally divided into three categories: Indica, Sativa, Hybrid.


Indica: Indica strains are known for their calming, relaxing, and ‘couch-lock’ effects on consumers. Effects are best suited for the end of the day, or for an experienced user. “Indica = In da couch”


Sativa: Sativa strains are known for their effects on the mind and emotion; catering to the creative and artistic side of consumers. These strains tend to be stimulating, uplifting, and energizing. Because of their effects, sativa strains are best suited for daytime use. “Sativa = Activa”


Hybrid: Hybrids are a cross-pollination between Indica and Sativa strains. One strain typically dominates the effects felt by the user, however hybrids can yield the best of both worlds. (1)


If you are new to consuming cannabis it is recommended to do so in a familiar and comfortable environment. Do not drive or operate machinery while experiencing psychoactive effects from ingesting or inhaling cannabis. Alcohol should not be consumed with cannabis, as the effects of cannabis and alcohol can be dramatically increased and may result in nausea or other uncomfortable effects. You should not consume cannabis products if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. (2)

TINCTURES 101

Compared to other intake methods, cannabis oils (or tinctures) provide consumers with more accurate portions and longer lasting effects. Cannabis oils can be administered directly under the tongue from a dropper, or incorporated into various recipes and beverages. 


Go slow, start low. It will likely take 45-90 minutes before effects are felt. Effects of ingested cannabis may take up to two hours before they peak. 


Cannabis oils and extracts are fat soluble, so take it with a small snack to promote absorption; an empty stomach may minimize the effects although effects vary on an individual basis. 


It is important that consumers only purchase recreational grade lab-tested oil sold by AGLC licensed retail cannabis stores, the official AGLC website, or directly from Federally Licensed Cannabis Producers if you are a medical patient. This keeps producers accountable for quality and purity.

CAPSULES 101

Cannabis capsules are designed for ingestion and are a convenient and discrete alternative to inhalation. It is important to go slow, start low when trying capsules for the first time as it can take between one-three hours (or longer) to begin feeling any sort of effect. Effects typically last much longer than inhaling cannabis (four-eight hours, or more).

WHAT IS THC & CBD

The most important chemicals in cannabis are the cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are the chemicals that give the cannabis plant its medical and recreational properties. Cannabinoids like Tetrahydocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD) are responsible for the way the brain and body respond to cannabis, including the high and intoxication. 


THC:
• Strongly psychoactive (induces euphoric high)

• Can cause anxiety and paranoia in some individuals


The potency (concentration or strength) of THC in cannabis is often shown as a percentage of THC by weight (or by volume of an oil). THC potency in dried cannabis has increased from an average of 3% in the 1980’s to around 15% today. Some strains can have an average as high as 30% THC. (1)


Cannabis that contains very low amounts of THC in its flowers and leaves (less than 0.3%) is classified as hemp. (1)


CBD

• Non-psychoactive (does not induce a euphoric high)

• Counteracts psycho-activity of THC


Unlike THC, CBD does not produce a high or intoxication. There is some evidence that CBD may block or lower some of the effects of THC on the mind. This may occur when the amount of CBD in cannabis is the same or higher than the amount of THC. CBD is also being studied for its possible therapeutic uses. (1)


If you are new to consuming cannabis it is recommended to do so in a familiar and comfortable environment. Do not drive or operate machinery while experiencing psychoactive effects from ingesting or inhaling cannabis. Alcohol should not be consumed with cannabis, as the effects of cannabis and alcohol can be dramatically increased and may result in nausea or other uncomfortable effects. You should not consume cannabis products if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. (2)
