Flower, or bud, is the smokable, trichome-covered part of a female cannabis plant. Flower is the most popular form of cannabis due to its versatility.
Another way to buy flower is in pre-rolled joints or pre-rolls. It's a high-convenience product that saves the consumer having to grind, pack, and roll the joint on their own.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is an oil derived from the cannabis plant. Possible health benefits include reducing inflammation and pain.
Cannabis is a plant with psychoactive properties that produces dried flowers, fruiting tops or leaves of the cannabis sativa or indica plants or a mixture of the two called hybrids (CCSA). Cannabis can be refined to other forms such as oils, extracts or resins. Cannabis goes by many names including weed, marijuana, hash, pot, ganja, bud, etc. After alcohol, cannabis is the most widely used psychoactive substance in Canada.
THC is one of the chemical compounds in cannabis that is responsible for how your brain and body respond to cannabis. It’s the mind-altering chemical that provides the feeling of being “high” to the user. The concentration or strength of the cannabis is usually shown as a percentage of THC by weight (or volume in oil). Products high in THC are more likely to result in harm. Choose lower THC products to reduce your risks.
CBD is another chemical compound found in cannabis. It has no mind-altering effects and may, in fact, block or lower some of the effects of THC on the mind. Choose products with a higher CBD to THC ratio to reduce your risks.
Buying cannabis online can be confusing. You may think you are looking at a legal website selling legal products—however, many illegal online sites trick you with information such as health warnings and other legal symbols.
