Cookies, chips, ice cream, grilled cheese, burgers, just a few of my go to munchies. Honestly I love when the munchies kick in its a favourite moment of mine. I can feel body speaking to me from so many different directions, my stomach, my mouth, my brain and through some research of my own I actually discovered THC actually does make my body start talking to me telling me to eat from every which way!
When THC starts reacting with your body it actually releases a hormone called Ghrelin, the hunger hormone. It essentially prepares the body to eat and even assists in the digestion process.
We have discovered that our brain’s endogenous cannabinoid system does far more than just induce us to eat; it also rewards us with a feeling of euphoria for doing so.
To ensure a pleasurable experience its important to identify what you are seeking to gain from cannabis. Whether it be social, spiritual or medicinal some research is always a good thing. Split up into distinctions of Sativa, Indica and Hybrids they all provide different effects to the user and should be taken into consideration before purchase.
Sativa strains are known for their uplifting and euphoric effects making this strain an excellent choice for daytime and social use. Feelings of alertness, increased energy and creativity are also why a sativa strain may be right for you!
Indica strains are best served for the night time user as they provide a more body high causing a relaxation sensation. This strain is known to stimulate appetite, relieve pain and help you sleep.
Hybrid strains contain a mix of both Indica and Sativa plants. These strains may have a more dominant parent for example the term ” sativa dominant” or “indica dominant” means they have more characteristics of the parent strain. Hybrid strains create a beautiful balancing act between cannabis sativa and cannabis indica when it comes to effects. A great choice for first time users.
If cannabis is new to you, don’t stress. All these words like THC, CBD, terpenes, and cb1 receptors can become overwhelming when all we wanna do is get high, but maybe you don’t want to get high and still want the effects. Understanding what you want to gain in choosing cannabis will help guide you through our store and make your experience the one you want it to be.
THC OR CBD?
THC (or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) does have healing properties but is also the compound that makes you feel high!
CBD (or cannabidiol) is known for its medical therapeutic properties and is non-intoxifying therefore you don’t feel high with the positive effects!
Personally mixing the two is my personal preference, I like to call it a cannabis cocktail more commonly known as the “entourage effect”. When THC and CBD used together they actually enhance the positive effects of both.
Let’s focus on SATIVA and INDICA strains.
Indica might be the strain for you if you want:
decreased acute pain
Sativa strain may be more in your interest if you want:
treat chronic pain
increased focus and creativity
Cannabis can be consumed in many different ways and choosing your method is exciting but you may have to experiment a bit. If smoking joint isn’t for you then a vape pen may a solution for you. Microdose easily with low content edibles or cook dinner with some infused oil.
Whichever method you choose remember to start low and go slow.

Unlike THC, CBD does not have any psychoactive effects on our body or non intoxifying as some prefer to put it . It communicates to the receptors in our endocannabinoid system and actually helps us out A LOT. By stimulating the endocannabinoid system, CBD promotes homeostasis, reduces pain sensation and decreases inflammation.
CBD is now exactracted and created into many forms for any type of user interested. Edibles, oils, tinctures, salves and many more. Take a look at our CBD only section on our website!
Small doses, big results. microdosing marijuana, who would have thought. Through research of my own I find as if i share similar feelings to most. We want the effects of this beautiful plant but we do not always want to feel “stoned”. The properties of this plant can do so much for a human body yes but also the mind, a big one is mood and mindset. Personally I find marijuana is a major mood booster for me, I tend to forget why I was upset about a situation and feel a general lift inside out. This is all super great but sometimes with smoking or splitting up edibles its easy to get carried away. I still want to be able to navigate my day without feeling impaired. Some may say to try cbd instead because it has no psychoactive properties but it has different effects, THC and CBD talk to the brain completely different.
