The only real way to lessen the effects of a bad cannabis experience is to wait it out; however, here are some things you can do while letting time do its job:
 
  • take deep breath
  • have a glass of water
  • lie down
  • watch a familiar television show or movie

 

FAQ Item

When you consume cannabis, the chemical compounds in THC interact with your Endocannabinoid System—a biological system spread throughout your entire body. This interaction is what makes you feel "high."

FAQ Item

Cannabis and hemp are both derived from the species Cannabis sativa. However, hemp refers to a separate cultivar of the plant which produces equal to or less than 0.3% THC. Because of this low THC content, hemp is primarily used for industrial purposes.

FAQ Item

No, this would be in violation of the Cannabis Act.

FAQ Item

Yes, there are many flower vapourizers available in the Canadian regulated market.

FAQ Category

Cannabis Vapes

FAQ Item

Cannabis vapourizers do have a distinct scent, but one that is much more discreet than that of a joint. This is because vapourizers heat cannabis, rather than burn it.

FAQ Item

Yes, since October 17, 2019.

FAQ Item

When vaping, the active compounds in your cannabis (cannabinoids and terpenes) are heated up rather than burned. When inhaling the resulting vapour, these active ingredients are almost immediately absorbed through the lungs.

 

These effects usually last up to 6 hours, but could even last up to 24 hours.

FAQ Item

Our 510 threaded vape cartridges are filled with precise amounts of cannabis extract, terpenes, and some other ingredients that can be vapourized when paired with a compatible 510 threaded battery.

 

There may be health risks associated with vaping that are not fully known or understood. Refer to the following for risks of vaping: www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/smoking-tobacco/vaping/risks.html.

FAQ Category

Cannabis Edibles

FAQ Item

If a consumer simply eats dried flower, chances are they won’t experience anything as the THC must be activated by heat (decarboxylated) to produce effects. 

 

If ingesting decarboxylated cannabis, a person can expect to feel the effects of THC in approximately 30 minutes to 2 hours.

FAQ Item

As of October 17, 2019, edible cannabis, cannabis extracts, and topical cannabis products have been legal to produce and sell.

FAQ Item

Edibles are digested just like any other food, and the active compounds need to be processed by the liver before entering your bloodstream. This means the effects of cannabis edibles can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to kick in, and can last up to 12 hours (or in some cases 24 hours).

FAQ Item

Since THC and CBD affect everyone differently, the effect of edibles will be dependent on the individual. All edible product packaging indicates the THC and CBD levels as required by law. 

 

Much like our other products, we suggest practicing a “start low, go slow” methodology as a means of finding an appropriate serving size for you. 

FAQ Item

Like all cannabis products, edibles can fall under the category of “indica”, “sativa” or “hybrid”. 

 

Some people use the term “indica” to describe effects that are more sedating or physical in nature, while the term “sativa” is often used to describe effects that are more cerebral or energizing. However, the way a product makes you feel has more to do with their levels of THC and CBD.

Assorted Cannabis Categories

FAQ Item

Over the years, cannabis has been recognized for its leaves, which are further defined by their finger-like serrated leaflets.

 

Cannabis flowers (or buds) begin developing from a small node where the leaf’s stem meets the branch or stalk.

 

As the plant matures, its flowers and leaves can develop into various hues of green, purple, orange, pink and yellow.

 

Once harvested, the plant is cut down, the leaves are trimmed off, and only the flower remains to be dried, cured, and consumed.

FAQ Item

It all depends on the level of THC and CBD within a drink and how your Endocannabinoid System reacts to it. 

 

  • THC-infused cannabis beverages will result in a psychoactive effect. 

  • CBD-infused cannabis beverages can produce effects, but not the same psychoactive effects as THC.

FAQ Item

Beverages should be treated like all other ingestible formats, with an expected onset of 30 minutes to 2 hours. 

 

In addition, these effects could last for as long as 12 hours or more. Some effects could last as long as 24 hours.
