Know Your Marijuana Strains

Do you know your marijuana strains?  If not, get cultured and educate yourself with weed knowledge.

Sativa Plants

Sativa plants are the taller and lankier variety, reaching heights of over 5-6 meters with narrow serrated leaves and loose spear like flower clusters that can be extremely resinous. Sativas may have higher THC content to Cannabidiol (CBD) ratios and is commonly used to elevate a depressed mood and stimulate appetite. In this regard Sativas tend to be more stimulating, uplifting and energizing. These benefits can be particularly helpful for the psychological component of many illnesses and better for daytime use.

Indica Plants

Indica plants are normally shorter and stockier plants, reaching 1-2 meters in height with wide, deeply serrated leaves and a compact and dense flower cluster. Indicas may have a higher CBD content to THC ratio and induces a more relaxing mood. The effects of Indicas are predominantly physical and used to reduce pain and tremors. Although the relief of certain physical symptoms can have an emotional result as well, including reductions in anxiety, anger, or stress. Indicas are characterized as relaxing or sedating and best used later in the day or before bed.

Hybrid Plants

Hybrid plants have been cross-bred between the two, offering the benefits of both strains while reducing the lesser desired effects of the other. Please feel free to ask our staff about what may best help your condition.

Cannabinoid Profiling

Cannabinoids occur naturally in significant quantity in the cannabis plant, and are concentrated in a viscous resin that is produced in glandular structures known as trichomes. The Green Cross provides accurate quantification of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Cannabidiol (CBD) and Cannabinol (CBN).

  • THC is the main psychoactive Cannabinoid produced by the cannabis plant and has mild to moderate analgesic effects, can stimulate appetite, and reduce nausea.
  • CBD is a non-psychoactive compound proven to reduce pain, inflammation, anxiety, and spasms.
  • CBN is a product of THC degradation and can help to indicate the age of cannabis.
