These are two of the naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis plant. CBD is Cannabidiol and THC is Tetrahydrocannabinol.
2. What is the difference between CBD and THC?
THC is the psychoactive part of the plant, which makes you feel good. CBD does not have psychoactive effects and often gets utilized for pain management.
3. Does the strain of cannabis I choose matter?
Understanding the strain of cannabis will give you a better idea of the effects it can have. Indica strains provide a calming effect, while Sativa strains produce an energizing effect. You will also come across a Hybrid, which is a cross between the two strains.
4. What are Terpenes?
Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in many plants. Cannabis has a high concentration of them, which creates the different aromas smelt in the flowers.

6. What is an edible?
An edible is a form of cannabis that you can eat. They can come in various forms, such as cookies or gummies, and contain either THC, CBD, or both. A cannabis edible high can last significantly longer than a smoked high from cannabis. It’s important to remember to start low and go slow when consuming edibles, as everyone’s bodies are different.
