Know Your Cannabis

—Marijuana is not a scientific term - it was slang created to demonize users during the Prohibition of the 30’s.  “Cannabis” is the correct term for flower with these characteristics:  psychoactive effects, higher levels of THC, and can produce CBD and minor cannabinoids.

—Hemp is not a scientific term either.  This word for Cannabis is now applied by the government for mostly industrially-produced cannabis that has:  minimal to no psychoactive effects, THC levels at/below 0.3%, and higher levels of CBD & minor cannabinoids.

Both marijuana and hemp are the same plant…cannabis.

Both marijuana and hemp produce cannabinoids and terpenes.

Primary compounds called cannabinoids produce physical and mental effects, are flavorless/odorless.  Cannabinoids include THC, CBD, CBG, THCV, CBN, and CBC.  Secondary compounds called terpenes determine smell, taste and nuanced effects.  Terpenes include myrcene, pinene, linalool, limonene, eucalyptol, and B-caryophyllene.
