Effects

People love cannabis. More specifically, they love the effect cannabis has on them.

When we talk about the effects of a cannabis strain, we usually first refer to the plant’s psychoactive properties — its ability to make us feel intoxicated.

This intoxicating effect is caused by THC, a chemical compound known as a cannabinoid which interacts directly with the body’s endocannabinoid system.

Of course, THC does more than just make you feel euphoric. It can also be used to treat pain, inflammation, insomnia, and more.

Factors That Determine a Cannabis Strain’s Effects

THC Level

Different products have different percentages of THC. The more THC in a product, the more potent its psychoactive effects will be.

An average THC percentage level is between 18% – 20%, although some strains can reach close to and beyond 30%.

But oil-based concentrate products like vape cartridges, wax, and shatter can have anywhere between 70% – 90% THC!

CBD Percentage

CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that counteracts the effects of THC. But that’s not to say that it doesn’t have beneficial effects all its own.

CBD is a major force in both the medical and wellness industry because of its ability to treat pain, inflammation, anxiety, and seizures.

Terpene Composition

Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in cannabis and other plant species. They determine how a particular strain will taste and smell.

But some terpenes have medicinal benefits as well. Plus, a strain’s terpene composition usually determines whether that strain will function as a sativa, an indica, or a hybrid.

Consumption Method

While THC, CBD, and terpenes play a large role in how a strain will affect you, the method of consumption is also a major factor. How you consume cannabis is almost as important as the type of cannabis you’re consuming.

For example, if you eat an edible, you can expect a far more powerful, longer-lasting effect than if you were to smoke flower, though it may take you longer to feel the effects.

Vaporizing, on the other hand, allows you to take a purer hit of cannabis than you would get from smoking because you’re only inhaling cannabinoids and terpenes – no burnt plant material at all. You’ll have a much cleaner and potentially more potent experience, provided you’re using a quality vaporizer.

Finding the Right Strain and Consumption Method

If you’re trying to find the right strain and consumption method, here are some good questions to consider:

  • How do you want to feel? Uplifted? Sedated? Somewhere in the middle?
  • How long do you want the experience to last? About an hour and a half? Several hours?
  • How potent of a psychoactive experience do you want? Do you have a high tolerance level? Do you need a product with a lot of THC, or do you want some CBD to balance it out?

Of course, if you speak with one of our dispensary consultants, they’ll be able to guide you through this process and help you find the product that’s best suited for you!
