Here are some definitions surrounding the world of Cannabis that can inform you about everything we do

Cannabis is a product of the cannabis sativa plant that is used for its psychoactive and therapeutic effects. It comes in many forms, including dried flowers and leaves; chop; extracts, such as oil (eg, honey oil, phoenix tears) and shatter; and edible (eg, candy, butter, or baked goods).
Cannabis contains hundreds of chemicals. Over 100 chemicals, called cannabinoids, have been identified as specific to the cannabis plant. THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is the primary psychoactive cannabinoid and is primarily responsible for the "high" associated with cannabis use. Another cannabinoid is cannabidiol (CBD). CBD has little to no psychoactive effects, so you don't feel high. CBD neutralizes some of the negative effects of THC.


Cannabidiol ( CBD ) is a naturally occurring organic terpene compound from the cannabinoid family. It was discovered in 1940 and is one of more than 100 cannabinoids discovered (including different types of THC , CBN , CBG and other organic compounds as well as terpenes or terpenoids and flavonoids ). It is the second most studied cannabinoid constituent of Cannabis sativa (industrial hemp) and Cannabis indica (Indian hemp) after THC 3 . It is one of the major constituents, representing up to 5% for certain varieties of hemp.
Medically, this chemical substance is being studied for its potential therapeutic effects which have yet to be confirmed.
CBD does not have a narcotic effect and therefore does not cause physical dependence

THC-tetrahydrocannabinol is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis. It was discovered and isolated in 1964 in Israel. It is the major constituent of cannabis whatever its subspecies ( indica , sativa , ruderalis , industrial hemp ) it is its rate which will vary from simple to triple depending on whether it is industrial hemp (very low dose) or medicinal and recreational cannabis (more highly dosed). It has psychoactive properties, acting on the psyche by modifying the cerebral rhythm . It also has anti-inflammatory properties 4 .

Its effects are generally described as being able to be calming, relaxing or can create drowsiness.
Cannabis indica plants are usually short and thick. The heads of its flowering tops are usually compact and stocky.
Its effects are generally described as being energizing, euphoric or cerebrally stimulating.
Cannabis sativa plants are generally taller than indicas. The heads of their flower tops are usually longer and less dense than those of the indica category.
Its effects are generally described as possibly being a mixture of indica and sativa effects.
The hybrid is a botanical cross between indica and sativa species. It offers a mix of features from both categories. Hybrid categories can be either indica or sativa dominant or an equal mix of the two.
Trichomes contain, in varying amounts, several compounds from the cannabinoid family, the main ones being tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). They appear as small crystals all over the plant, but they are larger and more numerous on the flower than on the leaves.
Comparable to essential oils, terpenes are the main responsible for the aromas and flavors of the plant, ex. : fruit, skunk, cheese, citrus, etc. There are over a hundred terpenes. Terpenes are produced naturally by the cannabis plant. They are mainly found in the trichomes mainly present on cannabis flowers. Originally, the odors produced by the cannabis plant are defense mechanisms against harmful insects and animals or are means of attracting pollinating insects. Although the terpene profile of cannabis is complex and may contain several varieties of terpenes, it is possible to identify a dominant profile.

Cannabis genetics determine the development and growth of plants. It also defines the cannabinoid profile, terpene production, yield and many other factors characterizing the properties of our favorite seeds. Knowing the history of cannabis genetics allows you to understand how different strains developed. It can also help you identify new strains similar to ones you already love.
A cannabis phenotype describes the plant's physical appearance/shape, growth pattern, biochemistry, and behavior. The phenotype of a specific cannabis strain derives from two fundamental factors: the genotype (genetic code) and the influence of external environmental factors.
Recreational Cannabis
In general, recreational cannabis is for anyone who wants to use cannabis for pleasure or amusement rather than to relieve a specific disease or symptom.
Cannabis for medical use
Medical cannabis, in general, is used to promote some relief of symptoms associated with acute or chronic disease.
