A strain (breed) is developed over generations of inbreeding. A hybrid is the product of cross breeding two different parental lineages (different breeds).
Indicas tend to be sedating and relaxing with full-body effects. Sativas tend to be uplifting and creative with cerebrally-focused effects.
Terpenes are the molecules that make up the unique aromas, or terpene profiles, of each strain or hybrid. Terpenes are concentrated in the resins of the flowers, and on the plant tissue of the flowers. Isolated terpenes can act as natural medicines on their own. Some produce lethargy and calming affects, while some are used as anti-inflammatories. In addition, terpenes have synergistic relationships with cannabinoids to produce different medicinal effects. How someone reacts to a strain or hybrid is based on both terpene and cannabinoid profiles.
Cannabinoids are macromolecules in the cannabis plant tissues and resins that we use for medicine. When isolated, some cannabinoids (like THC) will naturally increase heart rate and produce psychoactivity. Others like CBD produce no psychoactivity and have anti-inflammatory properties. There are more than 100 known cannabinoids occurring inside the plant and are referred to as phytocannabinoids. The cannabinoids produced naturally in the human body are endocannabinoids.
Trichomes are a glistening body of resin containing the psychoactive and medicinal properties. There are 5 types of trichomes. We see one with our naked eye (stalked capitate trichomes).
Concentrates are extracted resins from cannabis flower. Concentrates can be up to 10x more potent than flower.
Live resin is a cannabis concentrate made from living plants. This technique preserves the overall aroma and flavor profile of the
Rosin is a cannabis concentrate produced with absolutely no solvents (water, CO2, butane, alcohol, etc.), but made with heat
Virgin Rosin is made with a pneumatic press, not human hands (inconsistent). This technique produces a consistent medicine.
RSO is a extremely potent cannabis extract made for oral/transdermal application. It is made from the resins from the trimmings. RSO is used to treat cancer/chemo symptoms. Rick Simpson, the man that popularized this method, is cancer free and has been in remission for years.
There are many ways to use concentrates, but dabbing/smoking, vaporizing, or adding to bowl/joint are the most popular. Our activated RSO oil is for oral consumption.
Tincture is a bottled, essence or spirit of the cannabis flowers. Tinctures are used to minimize stress, pain, anxiety, and ease menstrual cycle.
We make our tincture with pure MCT oil, decarboxylated (activated) flowers, and beta-caryophyllene (noted as a natural promoter of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, deflects human pathogens). Very helpful in easing menstruation symptoms, i.e. cramps.
For the first time smoker, tincture is the best method for building tolerance as you have more control than smoking. there are less symptoms associated with tinctures if taken on a decided regimen. As your tolerance to the tincture increases, you may be ready for heavier consumption of similar cannabinoids if you so choose. It is recommended to move from tincture, to flower, to concentrate. If medical cannabis edibles are desired instead of tincture, be sure to adopt a decided regimen, as overdosing with medical cannabis edibles is common. If you are a consistent heavy smoker, and you still experience anxiety, you are on the wrong medical cannabis.
Compared to long chain fatty acids (LCFA) found in most oils, medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) are tasteless and odorless fats found in coconut and palm oil. The body quickly absorbs and breaks down MCTs into clean energy. MCT oils are purported to increase metabolism, help with weight management, increase physical endurance, reported improvements with dementia and Alzheimer’s, and an increase in cognition. Our MCTs are sourced from coconut oil only.
