Cannabis 101

How will cannabis affect me?

The effects of cannabis will vary from person to person. Factors such as health, weight, metabolism, current medical conditions, cannabis strain type and amount taken all contribute to the effect cannabis may have on an individual. Many people report feelings of euphoria, pain relief, sleepiness, increased energy and appetite after cannabis consumption. Some may also experience feelings of anxiety and paranoia. Cannabis may impair your mental and/or physical ability and therefore should not be taken before operating a motor vehicle or engaging in any activity where impairment of function could be detrimental. Determining the type and amount of cannabis products that are right for you may require the advice of a licensed physician who understands the cannabis plant and your body. For many it is a process of trial and error. If you are seeking a specific cannabis product to address a specific reason, feel free to contact TweedLeaf directly at: 719.465.2522 to speak with one of our knowledgeable staff. We will do our best to help you find what you need.

What is the difference between medical and recreational cannabis?

Medical cannabis is restricted to those with a Medical Marijuana Registry Card. These patients are able to purchase medicinal marijuana to help with the debilitating side effects from certain diseases, illnesses, injuries, mood and behavior disorders, and trauma. Medicinal Marijuana is legally permitted to be more potent and have higher concentrations of THC and/or CBD content. Medical patients are also allowed to purchase larger quantities per visit than recreational customers. Recreational Marijuana is open for legal consumption and purchase in Colorado for anyone over the age of 21.

How do I find recreational cannabis?

Recreational Marijuana dispensaries are prominent in Denver and Boulder, however they are prohibited in Colorado Springs. The closest recreational shops to Colorado Springs are located in Manitou Springs. The best way to find a recreational marijuana dispensary near you is to search online.

What does it mean to become a "member" with a dispensary?

Becoming a member at a dispensary means that you are giving the dispensary the rights to grow the plants associated with your Medical Marijuana Card.

What is an EPC?

An EPC, or extended plant count, is a special Medical Marijuana prescription that allows patients with specific medical conditions to purchase larger amounts of cannabis in a single day. It also gives these patients permission to legally grow more plants, or assign more plants to their designated dispensary. The standard plant count of a regular Medical Marijuana prescription is 6 plants, or 2 ounces. Extended plant counts can range from 12 plants to 75 plants, or even in some cases, 99 plants.

How long will it take for an edible to kick in?

Depending on various factors including the dosage of the product taken, your current health and metabolism, etc., it can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours for you to feel the full effects of cannabis edibles. Someone who is new to edibles should start with a low dosage (10-20mg). Try consuming a small portion of the edible until the effects become more familiar. It is also important for patients to eat a small amount of food be well hydrated prior to consuming a medicated edible as these factors will also contribute to the overall potency of the product. Using edibles can cause very different effects than smoking flower and depending on your body, the effects can be much more powerful.

How do I safely store my cannabis and concentrates?

To ensure the longevity and quality of cannabis and concentrates, it is recommended to store them in secure containers in cool, dry places. Storing cannabis in a sealed container in the dark can increase the quality and aroma of the terpenes in the flower. Storing concentrates in a refrigerator or freezer helps prevent the degradation of THC into CBN and the molecular stability of the medicine.

How long does cannabis stay in my system?

The rate at which cannabis leaves one's body is determined by how much and how often cannabis is consumed. An infrequent user that consumes only a few times a month will typically metabolize THC from his or her system within 4-6 weeks. However, a daily consumer who has using cannabis for a significant amount of time may not be clear of THC for between 2 to 6 months. Because THC binds to fat cells in the body, those with higher body fat percentages may also experience a longer wait periods for the THC to completely clear.

What are concentrates?

Concentrates are an extracted form of marijuana that contain a very high concentration of THC and other extracted cannabinoids. Concentrates can be made with solvents such as butane (for BHO or butane hash oil concentrates) or Propane (for PHO or propane hash oil concentrates). Some can also be "solventless" via CO2 or H20 extraction. Concentrates come in many varieties and consistencies. Some examples include: shatter, wax, budder, rosin, sap, live resin, etc. They are primarily consumed by vaporizing or smoking. The most efficient way to smoke concentrates is to use a concentrate "rig", however some prefer to consume concentrates as an additive to their bowl of flower.

Difference between smoking, vaping, and dabbing?

There are many different ways to consume marijuana. Some methods are more preferred for certain patients, especially those with respiratory problems. The most common way of consuming throughout the centuries has been to smoke the dried cannabis using a pipe or rolling papers. As science and modern medicine have progressed, the act of smoking, whether it be tobacco or marijuana, has become somewhat taboo and frowned upon. Currently, little evidence exists to show that smoking cannabis is the cause of respiratory problems or lung cancer, however for patients with asthma or other respiratory difficulties, there are many alternatives including edibles, topicals and vaporizing.

Vaporizing has gained attention over the years for many different reasons. "Vaping" cannabis flower or concentrates allows for consumption at a lower temperature, which can create a less harsh effect on the lungs. Some research shows that vaporizing marijuana allows for more of the cannabinoids to be inhaled and therefore may offer greater medicinal benefits than smoking. This method is also very versatile, as one can vaporize cannabis flower and cannabis concentrates.

Dabbing is the process of vaporizing cannabis concentrates on a "nail" made of titanium, ceramic, or quartz glass, typically at very high temperatures. Dabbing allows for higher quantity doses and is preferred by those with higher tolerance levels.

What are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are a group of active, chemical compounds found within the cannabis plant. There are over 60 cannabinoids known to nature, each one possessing its own medicinal properties. The most common and prominent cannabinoids are: Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabinol (CBN), Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Tetrahydocannabinolic Acid (THC-a), Cannabichromine (CBC) and Cannabigerol (CBG).

What is CBD?

CBD or Cannabidiol, is one of the most well-known and commonly used cannabinoids at this time. It is preferred by those seeking the health benefits of cannabis without the psychoactive or "high" associated with THC consumption. CBD has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antipsychotic, anti-tumoral and anti-carcinogenic properties. It is also known to relieve pain, anxiety, muscle spasms, and seizures, reduce nausea, and promote bone growth and health.

What is CBN?

CBN or Cannabinol is similar to CBD, sharing many of the same medicinal properties. CBN has been shown to have anti-insomnia, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. High concentrations of CBN are found mostly in indica strains and can induce a sedative effect in some. CBN is generated through the degradation and oxidation of THC. Often times aged cannabis or cannabis that hasn't been stored properly will inherently be higher in CBN.

What is THC?

THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol, Delta-9 is responsible for the psychoactive and euphoric effects of cannabis. For this reason it may also cause paranoia and anxiety in high doses, especially for patients who are new to cannabis. Research on THC has shown its effectiveness in the treatment of glaucoma, fatigue, stress, ADD/ADHD, complications from HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's, appetite stimulation and anorexia nervosa, Gastrointestinal problems, PTSD, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Herniated Discs, mood and behavioral disorders, etc.

What is THCa?

THCa or Tetrahydocannabinolic Acid is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in raw cannabis before it is decarboxylated, or activated. THCa has been shown to be neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, and anti-emetic. Juicing live and raw cannabis plants to obtain high levels of THCa is gaining in popularity as scientific knowledge is being discovered about cannabinoids.

What is CBC?

CBC or Cannabichromine is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in small amounts of cannabis. CBC has been shown to be even more effective than CBD for treating anxiety and aiding in cell growth.

What is CBG?

CBG or Cannabigerol is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in small amounts within the cannabis plant. CBG has been shown in some studies to promote brain cell and bone growth.

What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are the essential oils found in cannabis and other plants. Terpenes not only provide a unique aroma to each species and strain found in the plant kingdom, they are also being shown to have some medicinal properties as well. There is some evidence indicating that the olfactory properties of specific cannabis strains may indicate the mental and physical effects that particular plant may have. Terpenes are subject to many variables, however and those found in cannabis strains can vary and change with each harvest.

Some examples of cannabis terpenes are:

  • Linalool — lavender scent: may relieve anxiety and have a sedative effect.
  • Terpineol — floral: may promote relaxation.
  • Limonene — citrus: may have uplifting, energetic effects and may be indicative of anti-fungal and anti-carcinogenic properties.
  • Geraniol — floral: has been shown to be an insect repellent.
  • Pinene — pine scent: may increase alertness and may be an effective bronchodilator.
  • Myrcene — earthy, fruity and citrusy: may increase psychoactive effects and is associated with anti-carcinogenic and sedative properties.
  • Humulene — woody/earthy: may be an effective appetite suppressant.
  • Carene — woody: may cause cotton mouth.
  • Caryophyllene — clove, pepper scent: may indicate anti-inflammatory properties.
