Cannabigerol (CBG) works to fight inflammation, pain, nausea and works to slow the proliferation (growth) of cancer cells. (CBG) has three major benefits to your skin – CBG is highly anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant. Our bodies naturally contain the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which essentially works to keep everything in balance. CBG can be found in Tinctures, RSO’s and edibles.
THC syrup is a simple, sweet way to use cannabis. You can use it as you would any other simple syrup: in cannabis mocktails, to glaze desserts, or simply take it by the spoonful like cough syrup. The benefits of using a cannabis syrup are as follows:
- Inflammation and pain relief… a syrup will absorb quicker into the bloodstream than a normal edible and will give longer effects.
- Nausea associated with IBS, Digestive disorders , chemotherapy and so on. The cannabinoids present along with the THC help to calm the muscles in the bowels.
- Appetite Booster for people with eating disorders.
- Relaxation. Most THC syrup consumers agree that they enter a relaxed, stress-free state relatively quickly after consuming the product.
Cannabis syrups are fun and useful because of the quick absorption rate when you drink cannabis over eating it. It’s also something you can pour into almost anything and consume on the go!!
CBN is quickly becoming the most popular cannabinoid next to THC. It aids in helping you fall asleep. BUT……. Oregon is set to become the first state to ban synthetic cannabinoids sold at grocery stores and other retailers beginning next month.
CBN occurs naturally within the plant. However, it exists in very small amounts, so a chemical process is used to extract it from Hemp. CBN is then put into Edibles, Tinctures and topicals.
Following the July 1 ban, there will be a year grace period for CBN into July 2023 before the ban will only allow the sale of products containing the synthetic cannabinoid in OLCC-sanctioned cannabis shops after the products undergo rigorous and expensive testing and receive approval from the federal Food and Drug Administration.
If you rely on CBN products then Tinctures are a good way to stock up for the time it’s not available.
Autoflower strains are those cannabis strains that start to flower automatically when the physiology of the plants are ready, regardless of the amount of sun/grow light hours they get. Temperature is more important than light cycle. Regular autoflowering plants are small, yielding between 10 and 50 grams per plant. You cannot expect a strain with a fast and short flowering time to produce more than 30 grams but super autoflowers can yield 200-300 grams if you give it the perfect environment.
Auto Flowering plants are immensely popular among new and seasoned growers due to their short lifespan, between 7 and 13 weeks from seed to harvest. These are great for indoor grows with limited space.
Sativa and Indica identify not only the high they produce, but also the structure of a cannabis plant.
1. WHAT IS SATIVA?
Sativas have been known for a long time as the recreational species before breeding got widely spread, Sativas were known for their high THC levels and strong euphoric cerebral effect. Mostly found in tropic climates.
2. WHAT IS INDICA?
Indicas have been used as medicine and in religion since the beginning and are known as medicinal cannabis, they were widely used for their high CBD content and strong body relaxing and calming effects. These species were mostly found in harsh climates like High Deserts and Mountains.
3. WHAT ARE HYBRIDS?
Over the last years, breeders have been adjusting genetics to their preferences. This is made by crossing Indica, Sativa and Ruderalis genetics to create a wide variety of effects, colors, aromas, and flavors.
Terp Talk Tuesday is what we call our informational bit every Tuesday with our intake manager, Jai. Here are the last two he has done.
Welcome back to Terp Talk with @cannabanerd. Last week we talked about Terpenes!! This week let’s talk about what the main and minor Cannabinoids that are in Cannabis.
CBD- known to help anxiety, pain management, anti inflammatory, and seizures.
CBN- it’s a Cannabinoid that is made when THC ages. It’s main uses are for calming and sleep.
CBG- works to fight inflammation, pain, nausea and works to slow the proliferation of cancer cells.
T H C- a Cannabinoid that activates parts of the brain responsible for pleasure, memory, and thinking. Also known to help in being an Anti canceragent, anti inflammatory and appetite increases.
