What you should know about cannabis

You probably must have heard about marijuana at least once in your lifetime.  However you might not know exactly what this is. Simply put, cannabis refers to a group of plants with psychoactive properties. Cannabis is also sometimes referred to as weed or pot.

Marijuana contains over 100 active ingredients. Of these many active ingredients, two of them are the most abundant. These two active ingredients are Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) & Cannabidiol (CBD). THC and CBD account for up to 40% of the plant’s extract.

Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)

THC is the main active ingredient gotten from cannabis extracts. It is the main psychoactive component of marijuana products. In fact, it is the component that causes “high”, associated with cannabis use.

Cannabidiol (CBD)

CBD is the second most abundant active ingredient found in cannabis extracts. CBD actually helps with several medical conditions including insomnia, pain, and anxiety.

cannabis plant types

Same as many other plants, weed strains could either be of pure or hybrid varieties. In reality, most strains are of the hybrid type, hence the words: sativa-dominant & indica-dominant.

These sativa-dominant & indica-dominant strains, are commonly referred to as sativa and indica respectively. They are hybrid strains, having a higher content of their respective components – their names obviously say it all.

Another less commonly mentioned strain is the ruderalis. This is a low THC strain, often used by marijuana breeders to create hybrid strains.
