Atomizer: The little heater in a vape pen is called an atomizer. Fancier versions are called cartomizers, clearomizers or other new jargon, but they are still atomizers, basically, it's that pint-size heating element that converts liquid to tiny airborne droplets. Atomizing is what we should really call vaping.
BHO: Butane hash oil is made by blasting marijuana flowers with butane. The butane solvent causes THC to become soluble, resulting in a butane/THC mixture. Once the butane is evaporated, the resulting product is a viscous and amber colored resin known as “wax” or “shatter” and is very potent.
Boveda: Boveda's patented 2-way humidity control is the only technology that monitors ambient humidity and adds or removes moisture to deliver a precise relative humidity, resulting in the ideal moisture content for your goods.
Bud: Bud is a synonym for the flower of the mature marijuana plant. They are the actual nuggets that you grind up and smoke. Buds are the part of the marijuana plant that contain the cannabinoids including THC, CBD, CBG, and THCV.
Budder: A marijuana concentrate that is similar to wax but softer and more pliable. Budder is a type of hash oil that can contain 70%+ THC (very potent) and must be dabbed using an oil rig.
Butane: Butane is an organic compound with the formula C4H10 that is an alkane with four carbon atoms. Butane is a gas at room temperature and atmospheric pressure. The term may refer to either of two structural isomers, n-butane or isobutane (or "methylpropane"), or to a mixture of these isomers. In the IUPAC nomenclature, however, "butane" refers only to then-butane isomer (which is the isomer with the unbranched structure). Butanes are highly flammable, colorless, easily liquified gases. The name butane comes from the roots but- (from butyric acid) and -ane.
Cannabis: Cannabis is a plant genus that produces three species of flowering plants: Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Ruderalis. All three species are used to produce medical cannabis.
Cannabinoids: Cannabinoids are a type of active compound present throughout the cannabis plant. Although THC is the most well-known cannabinoid, there are in fact many others that contribute to cannabis’ expansive array of medicinal benefits. Cannabinoids have been shown to prevent nausea, vomiting, and pain in cancer patients, treat migraines, and inhibit the growth of tumour cells in culture and animal models, among a myriad of other benefits.Cannabinoid profiling can help you and your doctor identify the best medicine for your symptoms.
Concentrate: A concentrate is any type of cannabis product that is refined from flowers into a more purified and potent form. A concentrate can refer to any form of hash (pressed hash or water hash), kief, or hash oil (CO2, BHO, shatter, budder, wax etc.…). These more potent forms of cannabis have become extremely popular in medical and recreational communities.
Cultivar: A cultivar is a plant or grouping of plants selected for desirable characteristics that can be maintained by propagation. Most cultivars have arisen in cultivation but a few are special selections from the wild. The naming of cultivars is an important aspect of cultivated plant taxonomy.
Curing: Curing is a very important process during the growth of a cannabis plant, which allows for a much higher quality end product. When you move your plant from the drying process to curing at just the right time, one will have more control over the level of moisture of the bud, allowing for the grower to greatly increase it’s flavor, potency and other desired characteristics. If not cured properly, one will experience a harsher inhale or even bad smelling bud.
CBC: Cannabichromene (CBC) CBC is most frequently found in tropical cannabis varieties. CBC is known to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, inhibit cell growth in tumor/cancer cells, and promote bone growth. The effects of CBC appear to be mediated through non-cannabinoid receptor interactions.
CBD: Cannabidiol (CBD) has tremendous medical potential. CBD is commonly used for its anti-convulsant and anti-inflammatory properties, such as epilepsy, chron's disease, colitis and various forms of arthritis. Further studys have shown CBD to have anti-cancer properties; this is particularly true when the correct ratio of CBD to THC is applied to treat a particular condition. CBD acts as an antagonist at both the CB1 and CB2 receptors, yet it has a low binding affinity for both. This suggests that CBD's mechanism of action is mediated by other receptors in the brain and body. High quantities of CBD come in various CONSUMPTION METHODS, including flower/bud, oil, tincture, suppository, and other concentrated forms.
CBDA: Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA) CBDA, similar to THCA, is the main constituent in cannabis with elevated CBD levels. CBDA selectively inhibits the COX-2 enzyme, contributing to cannabis’ anti-inflammatory effects.
CBDV: Cannabidivarin (CBDV) Like THCV, CBDV differs from CBD only by the substitution of a pentyl (5 carbon) for a propyl (3 carbon) sidechain. Although research on CBDV is still in its initial stages, recent studies have shown promise for its use in the management of epilepsy. This is due to its action at TRPV1 receptors and modulation of gene expression
CBG: Cannabigerol (CBG) A non-psychoactive cannabinoid, CBG’s antibacterial effects can alter the overall effects of cannabis. CBG is known to kill or slow bacterial growth, reduce inflammation, (particularly in its acidic CBGA form,) inhibit cell growth in tumor/cancer cells, and promote bone growth. It acts as a low-affinity antagonist at the CB1 receptor. CBG pharmacological activity at the CB2 receptor is currently unknown
CBN: Cannabinol (CBN) CBN is a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid that is produced from the degradation of THC. There is usually very little to no CBN in a fresh plant. CBN acts as a weak agonist at both the CB1 and CB2 receptors, with greater affinity for CB2 receptors than CB1. The degradation of THC into CBN is often described as creating a sedative effect, known as a "couch lock
CO2: CO2 extraction is the process of pressurizing liquid or gas CO2 to its “Super Critical” state, anything over 1078 PSI, and passing it through marijuana. The waxes, oils, and cannabinoids will be stripped away creating a similar product to butane hash oil, but less viscous and more oily.
Dabbing: Dabbing is the latest method used to consume potent cannabis concentrates like butane hash oil (BHO). Specifically speaking, the process involves placing a small amount of concentrate (or a “dab”) onto a heated surface of an oil rig pipe, which is immediately vaporized and inhaled by the user. Dabbing is rising in popularity with a specific sub-culture within the cannabis world and is known to be a more advanced and potent option versus smoking flower or using a standard vapourizer.
Derivative: Chemistry. a substance or compound obtained from, or regarded as derived from, another substance or compound.
Dispensary: A dispensary is a place where medicinal cannabis patients can purchase cannabis. They are usually walk-in, but many dispensaries now a days deliver. Dispensaries usually have a verification process before you can purchase medicinal cannabis. Regulations around dispensaries in Canada are under heavy debate.
Dysphoria: A state of disease, dissatisfaction, anxiety, restlessness, or fidgeting.
Edibles: Edibles and medibles are edible goods that have been infused with cannabis extracts. They are commonly-baked goods such as cookies and brownies, but can also be flavored drinks, breads, candies and more. Edibles have a slower effect than other delivery methods since the cannabinoids first must be absorbed through the digestive system.
Eighth: 3.5 grams or an 1/8th ounce of cannabis.
Encapsulate: to enclose in or as if in a capsule
Endocannabinoid system: The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors. Known as "the body’s own cannabinoid system", the ECS is involved in a variety of physiological processes including appetite, pain-sensation, mood, and memory, and in mediating the psychoactive effects of cannabis.
Two primary endocannabinoid receptors have been identified: CB1, first cloned in 1990; CB2, cloned in 1993. CB1 receptors are found predominantly in the brain and nervous system, as well as in peripheral organs and tissues, and are the main molecular target of the endocannabinoid ligand (binding molecule), Anandamide, as well as its mimetic phytocannabinoid, THC. One other main endocannabinoid is 2-Arachidonoylglycerol(2-AG) which is active at both cannabinoid receptors, along with its own mimetic phytocannabinoid, CBD. 2-AG and CBD are involved in the regulation of appetite, immune system functions and pain management.
Ensemble Effect: Entourage(Ensemble) effect is a phrase that was introduced in cannabinoid science in 1998 by S. Ben-Shabat, with Raphael Mechoulam, to represent a novel endogenous cannabinoid molecular regulation route. Biological activity assayed together with inactive compounds. References whole plant and whole person caregiver synergy treatments over isolated compound pharmacological dosages
Euphoria: A sense of happiness, confidence, or well-being sometimes exaggerated in pathological states as mania.
Extraction: Extractions often use two immiscible phases to separate a solute from one phase into the other. Typical lab extractions are of organic compounds out of an aqueous phase and into an organic phase.
Flower: Euphamism for dried cannabis buds, or flowering tops. With regard to the growth process the term refers to the flowering stage that all cultivators proceed into when the plants energy is converted into developing lush resin covered buds or flowers.
Full Melt: Full melt generally refers hash that bubbles and melts at the slightest touch of heat leaving behind no residual.
Full Spectrum: A full-spectrum extract is made with an herbaceous plant's part(s), tinctured in alcohol or other suitable carrier to achieve a product that includes the highest percentage of all the plant's chemicals and compounds, without affecting the natural ratio of these constituents present in the plant. Full-spectrum extracts leave the natural ratios of the constituents in tact. Many scientists and practitioners around the world believe that some of the desired effects observed from a full-spectrum product may likely be attributed to the interactions between constituents (though not yet fully explored). Further, it is believed that there are constituents in plants that should not be left out so as to avoid adverse or unwanted effects that may occur with selectivity of compounds --selectivity being the characteristic of standardized extractions. Plants contain an array of phytochemicals with internal complexity working together as important pieces to the puzzle. Consequently, standardization may concentrate one constituent at the expense of other potentially important ones, while changing the natural balance of the herb’s components.
Gram: defined as one one-thousandth of the SI base unit, the kilogram, or 1×10−3 kg, which itself is defined as being equal to the mass of a physical prototype preserved by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures.
Greening out: This term describes the experience when someone ingests too much cannabis. The experience is non-lethal, and for some people it can be uncomfortable, and may cause paranoia and nausea. Fortunately, this experience does not last long, usually 1 to 8 hours on average. TIP: Drink water, and use things that will bring down your high, such as CBD, black peppercorn or oranges.
Hash/Hashish: Hash is a concentrated form of cannabis. The word “hashish” originates from the Arabic language, roughly translating to mean “grass.” Hash (hashish) is the resin collected from the flowers of the cannabis plant. Hash is usually smoked in pipes, water pipes, joints, and hookahs, sometimes mixed with cannabis flowers or tobacco. It can also be eaten.
Haze: Haze is a family line of cannabis and is considered one of the most THC-potent strains that cannabis has to offer. It is adored for its uplifting, euphoric, and even psychedelic mental experience while allowing the user to remain physically active. Some commong Haze strains include: Super Silver Haze, Super Lemon Haze, Amnesia Haze, and Blueberry Haze.
Heirloom: An heirloom is a cannabis cultivar(strain) that was taken from its native homeland and cultivated in another geographical location.
Hemp: Hemp is a fibrous product that can be produced from the male cannabis plant and can be used in the manufacture of rope, paper, beauty products and more. Commercial production (including cultivation) of industrial hemp has been permitted in Canada since 1998 under licenses and authorization issued by Health Canada.
Hexane: Hexane, an alkane of six carbon atoms, with the chemical formula C6H14. The term may refer to any of the five structural isomers with that formula, or to a mixture of them. In IUPAC nomenclature, however, hexane is the unbranched isomer (n-hexane); the other four structures are named as methylated derivatives of pentaneand butane. IUPAC also uses the term as the root of many compounds with a linear six-carbon backbone, such as 2-methylhexane (C7H16), which is also called "isoheptane".
Homeostasis: The tendency of a system, especially the physiological system of higher animals, to maintain internal stability, owing to the coordinated response of its parts to any situation or stimulus that would tend to disturb its normal condition or function.
Hybrid: Hybrid cannabis plants are a genetic cross between two or more separate strains of cannabis. Hybrids can happen unintentionally, but they are usually bred specifically to combine desired traits of the original plants. Most cannabis available today is some form of hybrid.hydroponics
Hydroponics: is a subset of hydroculture and is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, in water, without soil. Terrestrial plants may be grown with their roots in the mineral solution only, or in an inert medium, such as perlite or gravel.
Indica: Indica is the less scientific name for the Cannabis indica species of cannabis. Cannabis Indica is said to have originated in the Middle East and Asia and include both of the famous Kush and Afghan lineages. Compared to their sativa counterparts, the plants are shorter, bushier and have more compact flower structure. This species tends to produce more relaxing physical effects and can have a sedative quality.
ISO/Isopropynol: ISO is a colorless, flammable chemical compound with a strong odor. ISOPROPYL alcohol is used as a solvent for extraction, such as producing cannabis oils or hash.
J - is for the joy we receive everyday we breath, and everyday we see the sun shine.
Joint - slang term and common name of for a rolled cannabis cigarette.
Kief: Kief is a collected amount of trichomes that have been separated from the rest of the cannabis flower. Since trichomes are the sticky crystals that contain the vast majority of the plant's cannabinoids, kief is known to be extremely potent. Kief is sometimes mistakenly referred to as pollen and is the primary ingredient in hashish production.
Kush: Kush refers to a subset of strains of Cannabis indica. The origins of Kush Cannabis are from landrace plants mainly in Afghanistan, Northern Pakistan and North-Western India with the name coming from the Hindu Kush mountain range. "Hindu Kush" strains of Cannabis were brought to the United States in the mid-to-late 1970s and continue to be available there to the present day.
Landrace: A landrace is a domesticated, regional ecotype a locally adapted, traditional variety of a domesticated species of animal or plant that has developed over time, through adaptation to its natural and cultural enviroment of agriculture and pastoralism, and due to isolation from other populations of the species. Landraces are generally distinguished from cultivars, and from breeds in the standardized sense, although the term landrace breed is sometimes used as distinguished from the term standardized breedwhen referring to cattle. The -race in this word refers to the taxonomic definition of race in biology, not the ethnographic sense of the word.
Marijuana: Marijuana is the general term for female cannabis plants or their dried flowers. Females are distinct from male plants in that they are the ones that produce flowers which contain the high percentage of cannabinoids that hold both their medicinal and psychoactive properties. For more information about the cannabis flower: PLANT 101.
Metabolism: is the set of life-sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of living organisms. These enzyme-catalyzed reactions allow organisms to grow and reproduce, maintain their structures, and respond to their environments. The word metabolism can also refer to all chemical reactions that occur in living organisms, including digestion and the transport of substances into and between different cells, in which case the set of reactions within the cells is called intermediary metabolism or intermediate metabolism.
Neuromodulation: Neuromodulation is often contrasted with classical fast synaptic transmission. In both cases the transmitter acts on local postsynaptic receptors, but in neuromodulation, the receptors are typically G-protein coupled receptors while in classical chemical neurotransmission, they are ligand-gated ion channels. Neurotransmission that involves metaotropic receptor (like G-protein linked receptors) often also involves voltage-gated ion channels, and is relatively slow. Conversely, neurotransmission that involves exclusively ligand-gated ion channels is much faster. A related distinction is also sometimes drawn between modulator and driver synaptic inputs to a neuron, but here the emphasis is on modulating ongoing neuronal spiking versus causing that spiking.
O/OZ: An ounce is four quarters or 28 grams of marijuana (technically 28.35 grams). People may buy an ounce of cannabis to save some money, as they’re technically buying in bulk. Often referred to as an "O" “OZ” (oh-zee).
Oil: Oil is a shortened term for hash oil (or butane honey oil, wax, shatter, budder), which is a marijuana extract and golden in color. Users can smoke oil, use it in a vaporizer or eat them in edibles.
Phenotype: When it comes to growing cannabis, a plant’s phenotype is important because it determines a strain’s taste, effectiveness, look and more. Simply put, phenotype is a word used to successfully identify a plant’s inherent traits. Every strain has two parent plants, including a male and female. Like in most breeding of organisms, when a male plant fertilizes a female plant, the seeds that are produced will include genetic phenotypes from both plants. Because people like varying traits from different strains, growers can make a specific strain based on those preferred characteristics.
Pollen: (1) Fine, yellow, dust-like microspores containing male genes pollen sack. Male flower containing pollen. (2) Sieved glandular trichomes with a high THC content. Pollen, as it is known in Europe, is pressed into hashish.
Pot: Pot is a slang term for marijuana.
Pre-roll: A pre-roll is a joint or blunt of marijuana that was prepared before its intended time of consumption. One can purchase pre-rolls at a dispensary, which prove to be helpful if you don’t want to roll a joint yourself.
Pressed: Pressed hash is made from compressed resin glands (or trichomes) after the initial extraction period and is brown in color. It’s made with large amounts of pressure or heat with the intent of making the product dense to keep it fresher longer. Pressed hash is traditionally made in countries including Morocco, Lebanon and Afghanistan and can be consumed in typical marijuana tools like a pipe, bong, vaporizer or in a joint.
Propagate: (1) Sexual: produce a seed by breeding different male and a female flowers (2) Asexual: to produce a plant by taking cuttings.
Quietly quivering minds quickly become quantum in their understanding of questions that were queried for large quantities of time. The answer Cannabis is quintessential.
Ratio: the numbers compared in a ratio can be any quantities of a comparable kind, such as objects, persons, lengths, or spoonfuls. A ratio is written "a to b" or a:b, or sometimes expressed arithmetically as a quotient of the two. When the two quantities have the same units, as is often the case, their ratio is a dimensionless number. A rate is a quotient of variables having different units. But in many applications, the word ratio is often used instead for this more general notion as well.
Receptor: (1)Physiology. an end organ or a group of end organs of sensory orafferent neurons, specialized to be sensitive to stimulating agents, astouch or heat. (2)Cell Biology. any of various specific protein molecules in surfacemembranes of cells and organelles to which complementary molecules,as hormones, neurotransmitters, antigens, or antibodies, may becomebound.
Resin: Resin refers to the trichomes that are used to create hash. It’s also a term that references the sticky residue that amasses on the inside of a bowl (or other marijuana paraphernalia) after smoking product in it again and again. Resin can be scraped from the inside of the piece to remove a clog – or alternatively smoked, but this is usually done as a last resort because it contains lower THC levels and impurities.
Rosin: Rosin refers to an extraction process that utilizes a combination of heat and pressure to nearly instantaneously squeeze resinous sap from your initial starting material. The term "rosin" originated as a method of making a product used to lubricate violin bows. With cannabis, this method is incredibly versatile in that it can either be used with flowers or to clean up hash and kief into a full-melt hash oil. The result is a translucent, sappy, and sometimes shatter-like product. If executed correctly, rosin can rival the flavor, potency, and yield of other solvent-based extraction products.
Ruderalis: Ruderalis is one of the three main variations of cannabis, including indica and sativa. Although this plant is less common than the other two and grows to approximately 2 feet high, it is known to autoflower with age, versus with a light cycle. Ruderalis is very high in cannabidiol or CBD.
Sativa: Sativa is a shorter, less scientific name for the specific species of cannabis plant. This variety began along the equator in areas and can be traced back to parts of the Middle East, Asia and South America. The plant typically matures at a slower rate than other species, but tends to grow a lot taller as well (over 5 feet) with loose branches and narrow leaves – often delivering more product as a direct result. Sativas are well known for their energetic and uplifting cerebral effects, often to treat depression and encourage creativity and amiability. Having said this, consuming a sativa can sometimes increase anxiety in users, causing racing thoughts and paranoia.
Schwag/Swag: Schwag is a word to describe low-quality marijuana that’s typically brown in color, and very dry. Most often, a lot of seeds and stems will need to be removed before smoking the actual leaf material.
Sensimilla: For those who don’t grow cannabis, sensimilla may sound like a specific strain, when in actuality, it’s a female plant that has been prevented from being fertilized and therefore grows without seeds. Most people want to grow sensimilla plants because it produces flower with a higher THC content, versus putting all of its energy into producing seeds. Having said this, sensimilla plants are rare because they’re unable to reproduce until it’s fertilized.
Shake: Shake consists of small pieces of cannabis flower that has broken off of larger buds, generally as the result of trimming and handling. The quality of the materials in shake bags are more often not to the same quality as a flower/bud. Shake is commonly solid in larger qauntities (1 oz or larger) at a cheaper value than the buds/flowers itself.
Shatter: Shatter is a type of concentrate that is believed to be the purest and most potent type of marijuana product. Shatter, or butane hash oil, is created through an extraction process that eliminates fats and lipids. It’s typically transparent and easily breaks into fragments. Users can add shatter to a bowl of flower or melt it and inhale the resulting smoke, known as dabbing.
Solvent: A substance that dissolves another to form a solution (eg. water or butane)
Strain: A cannabis strain is a particular kind of plant species, either in a pure or hybrid variety like sativa or indica found in both the recreational and medical arenas. Each strain is grown to increase certain traits of the plant, with names being chosen by the actual grower to mirror the strain’s color, taste, smell, origin or physical effect on the user. There are hundreds of strains available, with more being produced everyday thanks to the many options to crossbreed. It’s important to note that the medical marijuana industry is trying to maintain some type of consistency between each strain, but unfortunately, many of them are misclassified or marketed improperly causing confusion for the dispensary owner or buyer.
Sublingual: Sublingual, from the Latin for "under the tongue", refers to the pharmacological route of administration by which drugs diffuse into the blood through tissues under the tongue. Many drugs are designed for sublingual administration, including cardiovascular drugs, steroids, barbiturates, opioid analgesics with poor gastrointestinal bioavailability, enzymes and, increasingly, vitamins and minerals.
Suppository: A suppository is a drug delivery system that is inserted into the rectum (rectal suppository), vagina or urethra, where it dissolves or melts and is absorbed into the blood stream. They are used to deliver both systemically and locally acting medications.
Sweet leaf: The sweet or sugar leaf is a small leaf that grows within the flower and it is usually covered in trichomes because of its positioning. Sweet leaves are typically trimmed when flowers are harvested, but their trichome-coating makes them an ideal ingredient when making cannabis edibles.
Symbiosis: The living together of two dissimilar organisms, as in mutualism,commensalism, amensalism, or parasitism.
Synergy: The interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combinedeffect is greater than the sum of their individual effects.
Syringe: a tube with a nozzle and piston or bulb for sucking in and ejecting liquid in a thin stream, demarkation.
Terpenes: Terpenes are molecule compounds found in the oils of plants like citrus trees, conifers and of course, cannabis. These specific compounds are accountable for the hundreds of variances between strains including flavor and smell. Because terpenes are so sensitive to low temperatures, it’s imperative to keep cannabis in cooler settings. Most recently, terpenes have entered into the medical marijuana arena to aid particular ailments or issues.
Tincture: A tincture is a liquid form of marijuana, typically made from glycerin (sweeter) or alcohol (harsher). The majority of tinctures are flavored and distributed via an eyedropper under the tongue for faster absorption into the body. Some people relate tincture highs to that of an edible, but without consuming actual food. After taking a tincture directly, a user will typically feel its results in a shorter time period than that of consuming an edible.
Topical: A topical is any type of cannabis product, including lotions, balms or creams that are applied to the outside of a user’s body to help with medicinal issues like body pain, skin problems, etc. Although these lotions showcase specific cannabinoids extracts like THC, topicals won’t actually get you high. The product is absorbed through the skin, so many users like the less aggressive approach to consuming marijuana.
Trichomes: Trichomes are crystalized glands that produce resin on a marijuana plant. Often referred to as “sticky little hairs”, these glands are not actually hairs or crystals (although they’re still very beautiful close-up). Instead, they’re specific parts of the plant that carry the majority of cannabinoids (THC, CBD, etc.) and cover the plants major surfaces. Under a microscope, trichomes look like mini mushrooms, with each section providing certain value to the plant. The head is most valuable and is frequently turned into a quality sieve or water hash.
Trimming: After marijuana plants are mature, they’re harvested within a certain time frame to keep the product fresh. Throughout the growth cycle and during this specific time period after the plant has been harvested, a grower will trim the plant of its leaves, focusing mostly on the remaining buds. Specifically speaking, trim is defined as the excess snipping of leaves from buds of marijuana plants. Note that leftover product can still be used to make extractions, tinctures, hash and edibles, so growers and trimmers alike can always increase sales with a larger product offering.
THC: Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) The most abundant cannabinoid present in marijuana, THC is responsible for cannabis’ most well-known psychoactive effects. THC acts as a partial agonist at the CB1 and CB2 receptors. The compound is a mild analgesic, or painkiller, and cellular research has shown that it has antioxidant activity
THCA: Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THCA) THCA is the main constituent in raw cannabis. THCA converts to Δ9-THC when burned, vaporized, or heated at a certain temperature. THCA, CBDA, CBGA, and other acidic cannabinoids hold the most COX-1 and COX-2 inhibition, contributing to cannabis’ anti-inflammatory effects. This cannabinoid also acts as an antiproliferative and antispasmodic.
THCV: Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) THCV is a minor cannabinoid found in only some strains of cannabis. The only structural difference between THCV and THC is the presence of a propyl (3 carbon) group, rather than a pentyl (5 carbon) group, on the molecule. Though this variation may seem subtle, it causes THCV to produce very different effects than THC. These effects include a reduction in panic attacks, suppression of appetite, and the promotion of bone growth. THCV acts as an antagonist at the CB1 receptor and a partial agonist at the CB2 receptor.
U - u look amazing. keep loving u-rself.
Vapourizer: Vapourizers help a user consume marijuana differently than most other methods like a joint or pipe, which often combusts the product. Whether you have a portable or desktop contraption, each vapourizer will heat flower or oils to a very specific temperature that activates the cannabinoid and turns them into a vapour to be inhaled. Many believe that vapourizing is healthier than smoking because you’re not inhaling smoke. Having said that, vaporizers can be just as potent so always be careful when consuming as it’s difficult to know how much you’ve had as vapor is hard to see – or smell. Another alternative to the larger options within the vapourizer family is the “vape pen” or “e-vape”, which provides a level of discreetness and mobility because of how small it is. Please see “Vape Pen” for more information.
Varietal: : of, relating to, or characterizing a variety also : being a variety in distinction from an individual or species.
Water Extracted Hash: Water hash, also known as ice water hash or bubble hash, is a specific technique to separate THC trichomes to isolate the resin in cannabis. Using micro screens, ice and water, one can effectively strain out resin glands that are inherently more dense than water. Because big quantities of pure resin can be removed from the plant material, water ice water separation is a cleaner method that doesn’t involve other solvents and allows for a more refined hashish – a product that’s made from compressed trichomes.
Wax: Wax is a concentrated form of marijuana that’s created when the plant is dissolved into a solvent. It’s considered to be a lot more potent than smoking regular flower because it packs a big punch of THC (the psychoactive ingredient) each time it’s consumed. Wax is often opaque and is favored by many because it’s easy to handle and can be used with a rig or on top of a bowl for one serious hit.
Weed: Slang, also see cannabis, Weed is another, slang term for marijuana. It’s frequently used, specifically in reference to flower. God's gift to the world. Brings peace when used wisely.
Y? - cause I gotta know! (it's okay to lol.)
Zip: Slang terminology for an ounce of marijauna.
