The Different Forms of Cannabis in 2017
First, let’s look at the major components found in cannabis. The natural compounds in the plant that create the reaction your body feels once it has entered your system.
THC – Most people know that THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical compound in cannabis responsible for a euphoric high. For a long time, this element is what put the stoned feeling into stones. It’s 2017 now and there are so many more cannabis choices than ever before thanks to strain science. Yes, sometimes that stoned feeling is still a thing but THC also is a great organic way to feel: elation, relaxation, sedation, pain relief, energy, and hunger.

Flower – The marijuana plant itself is distinguished as ‘flower’ within the industry, but yes these are the buds, nuggets, herb, etc., that you’re used to being in a baggie or Ball jar. The most important thing to realize is that there are three main players in the flower category and they all have different uses:
Indica – AKA ‘The Doctor’, tend to have a strong sweet or sour odor to the buds (ex. Kush, OG Kush) providing a very relaxing and strong body high that is helpful in treating general anxiety, body pain, and sleeping disorders.
Suggestions: Granddaddy Purp, Northern Lights, Bubba Kush, and Grape Ape
Sativa – AKA ‘Party Partner’, are strains that usually have a more outdoorsy fragrance that provides an uplifting, energetic, and “cerebral” high that is best suited for daytime smoking.
Suggestions: Sour Diesel, Green Crack, Lemon Haze, and Maui Wowie (Yes, the same one from Half Baked)
Hybrid – AKA ‘Smooth Sailor’, finds itself smack dab (pun intended) in the middle of both indica and sativa in different variations because Sativa and Indica buds have very different benefits and effects.
Suggestions: White Widow, OG Kush, Pineapple Express (the flower and the movie), and Girl Scout Cookies
Tinctures – Primarily dosed via an eyedropper type of aparati, these are dense liquidy cannabis extracts that known as an easy, highly effective option for accurate, instantaneous relief
No matter what form it comes in, or how you consume it, there are an exponential amount of benefits to cannabis. The most important thing to do is learn before you burn. Talk to your dispensary (or trusted dealer) and get advisement on which product works best for what results. Don’t jump right in either, gradually ease into something you’re trying for the first time, because when you’re just trying to rid yourself of a headache and take a quick catnip nap but you medicate a tad too much and end up melting into your couch for 5 hours might intrude on your plans for the day. As with anything you put into your body, enjoy responsibly, or lock all your doors, shut all the curtains on and find your favorite Phish album and a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos.
