Frequently Asked Questions

Cannabis, is a psychoactive drug derived from the Cannabis plant. It contains various compounds, including THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol), which interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, producing a range of effects including relaxation, euphoria, altered perception, and increased appetite.

Cannabis can be used in various ways, including smoking, vaporizing, eating (edibles), and applying topically. Smoking and vaporizing involve inhaling the active compounds through the lungs, while edibles involve consuming marijuana-infused foods or beverages, and topical applications involve applying cannabis-based products directly onto the skin.

The threshold for what constitutes “too high” of a THC percentage can vary depending on individual tolerance levels and desired effects. However, in general, strains with THC levels exceeding 20-25% are considered high potency and may produce stronger psychoactive effects, potentially leading to increased risk of adverse reactions, especially for novice users.

The peak time for THC effects typically occurs within minutes to an hour after consumption, depending on the method of ingestion. When smoking or vaporizing marijuana, the effects are felt almost immediately and peak within 30 minutes to an hour. With edibles, the onset of effects is slower (usually within 30 minutes to 2 hours) but can last longer and peak around 2-3 hours after consumption.

The ideal THC content varies based on individual preferences, tolerance levels, and intended use. For some users seeking potent psychoactive effects, strains with higher THC percentages (usually above 15-20%) may be preferred. However, for those seeking a milder experience or medicinal benefits without intense psychoactivity, strains with lower THC levels and higher CBD content may be more suitable. Ultimately, what constitutes a “good” THC level depends on the user’s specific needs and preferences.

Sleep in Absolute Peace Wake up to Bright Sunshine

Cannabis, particularly strains rich in cannabinoids like THC and CBD, is often praised for its ability to promote relaxation and aid sleep. It induces a sense of calmness, alleviates stress and anxiety, and can provide relief from chronic pain, all of which contribute to improved sleep quality. THC can shorten the time it takes to fall asleep and prolong deep sleep, while marijuana’s influence on the endocannabinoid system helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle. Additionally, its muscle-relaxing properties and ability to reduce REM sleep interruption can lead to a more restful night. However, individual responses to marijuana vary, and it’s important to use it responsibly and consult with a healthcare professional, especially considering potential drawbacks like dependence and tolerance.
