While smoking flower or vaping provides almost immediate onset of effects, edibles can take minutes to fully set in yet offer greater intensity of effects
The dispensary categorizes the peculiar strains of cannabis as indicas, sativas or hybrids. The general rule is that indicas are more of a body-high. They give relaxing, mellowing plus soothing effects plus are proposed for eveningtime use! Some people friend “couch-lock” with indicas. Indica strains tend to offer higher percentages of CBD however without necessarily sacrificing THC levels. Sativas are considered to offer a cerebral high. They create energizing, inspiring effects plus are proposed more for afternoontime consumption. Most sativa strains give higher THC potency plus lower CBD levels, and hybrids can be just about anything. There are more plus more hybrid strains showing up on the shelves of the dispensary all the time, growers are cross-breeding plants to supply sky-high THC levels or to target particular therapeutic effects. Hybrids can be sativa-dominant or indica-dominant plus give any combination of relaxing to energizing sensations. After some long discussions about the more than 2 categories with a budtender at the dispensary, I realized I should be paying more attention to cannabinoids plus terpenes. The terms sativa plus indica actually refer to the origin of the cannabis plant. It has more to do with the grow temperature, shape of the leaves plus height of the plant than the effects it delivers, however fortunately, cannabis products are particularly well labeled plus the staff at the dispensary is super comprehensionable. I’ve now been exploring THC percentages, CBD percentages, flavonoids plus a variety of consumption methods. While smoking flower or vaping provides almost immediate onset of effects, edibles can take minutes to fully set in yet offer greater intensity of effects. Concentrates are always more potent plus topicals cause no high at all.
