A — While each state has their own unique set of rules and regulations regarding how much cannabis a person may purchase, own, or carry on them within the state at any given time, carrying cannabis products across state lines (including between two states with legal cannabis) is still considered illegal.
A — Terpenes are a class of volatile, hydrocarbon molecules that are found throughout nature. In cannabis, terpenes are the primary factor for impacting the smell and flavor of a cannabis strain. Terpenes are also thought to play an important role in the “entourage effect”, meaning that the difference in terpene profiles found between strains may play a large part in creating the differences in effects felt between cannabis strains.
A — While THC and CBD are the primary cannabinoids that cannabis plants have been bred to produce, cannabis plants also tend to comprise a wide variety of other phytocannabinoids in smaller yet significant quantities (such as CBG, CBC, and CBN). Cannabis plants also contain a class of molecules called terpenes, that dictate the smell and flavor of the cannabis plant, but also have a good amount of evidence suggesting that terpenes also have a physiological effect as well. The entourage effect is in reference to the idea that the effects felt from a cannabis product are created by the combination of minor and major cannabinoids, terpenes, and other assorted compounds contained within the plant. Not only does this help explain the differences many users report feeling between cannabis strains, but also supports why many people feel that using products containing isolated cannabinoids do not gain the same benefits as they would from products containing a full spectrum of the chemical compounds found in cannabis.
A — While federal regulations prohibit us from making any health or medical claims about cannabis, many people currently purchase medical cannabis through legal state programs and claim to receive positive benefits from using cannabis products.
A — CBD, or cannabidiol, is a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis and hemp plants. This molecule does not have an intoxicating effect, but preliminary research suggests that this molecule has unique interactions with the endocannabinoid system, and may indicate potential benefits from its use.
A — THC, or Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol, is a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis plants, and is the molecule that is primarily responsible for creating the intoxicating effects felt by using cannabis products.
