What is Cannabis?

Cannabis (A.K.A. marijuana, weed, pot, bud, etc) is a psychoactive drug, which means it alters brain function. The cannabis plant can be used for recreation or medical purposes. Cannabis is made up of many compounds, including:


  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
    • Tetrahydrocannabinol is the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis and one of at least 113 total cannabinoids identified on the plant.
  • Cannabinol (CBD)
    • Non-psychoactive compound that is used to impart a feeling of relaxation & calm.

What are the varieties of the cannabis plants?

Although THC and CBD concentrations are important to defining plant characteristics, strains are generally broken up into three groups; Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid.


  • Indica strains are believed to be physically relaxing, perfect to enjoy before bed. They’ve been reported to help consumers relax, reduce pain, spasms, inflammation, and anxiety, and provide more of a “body high.”


  • Sativa strains are more invigorating, uplifting effect that go great with social activities and creative projects. These have more of a “head high.”


  • Hybrid strains are the most common strains found in the U.S., and fall somewhere in the middle of Sativas and Indicas in terms of their effects.

  • Cannabis products are not recommended for women that are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding.
