These are the 3 most common types of cannabis plant:

Indica

Indica is a classification that is used to establish the geographic origin of a cultivar (strain) and is reserved for cannabis varieties
that are typically shorter in height with wider leaves than their sativa counterparts.

Sativa

Sativa is a classification that is reserved for cannabis varieties that, due to their origins, are typically taller in height with thinner leaves than their indica counterparts.

Hybrid

Hybrid varieties are combinations of both indicas and sativas, possessing traits and characteristics attributed to each classification.

The active ingredients in medicinal cannabis

Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds found in cannabis that have been reported to have therapeutic benefits. The two most commonly discussed cannabinoids are THC and CBD.

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol is commonly referred to as THC. It’s a neutral cannabinoid popularized by its psychoactive effects. THC acts as a mental stimulant and is known for fueling appetite and increasing mental acuity.

Cannabidiol

Commonly referred to as CBD, Cannabidiol is a non psychoactive compound. Concentrations of Cannabidiol counteract THC, while maintaining symptom relief. People have become interested in medicinal cannabis because of CBD.

Cannabinol

Found in much smaller percentages than THC or CBD, CBN begins to appear only when THC starts to degrade. It’s not a weakness. CBN is an important chemical compound aiding in sleep and pain relief.

Cannabichromene

Cannabichromene (CBC) is more bountiful by percentage than CBD, but has received much less research attention. This second place compound may be mood enhancing. Think positivity and relaxation.

Cannabigerol

Before becoming THC or CBD, life begins as Cannabigerol. CBG is non psychoactive and a minor compound found in trace percentages in medicinal cannabis. CBG is more detectable in hemp.

Tetrahydrocannabivarin

Closely related to THC, Tetrahydrocannabivarin’s chemical structure is similar, but engages our cannabinoid receptors differently. THCV is psychoactive. It’s being researched for its appetite suppressant and anticonvulsant properties.

Terpenes: Flavours & Aromas

Terpenes are organic compounds, produced by a variety of plants including cannabis. They are responsible for the unique aromas and flavours of different cannabis cultivars (strains). Research is currently underway to substantiate if terpenes work in conjunction with cannabinoids to produce unique therapeutic benefits.

To date researchers have discovered over 100 different terpenes in cannabis varieties, but we’ve listed the most popular cannabis terpenes here. 

Caryophyllene

Also Found In: Black pepper, cloves, and oregano

Pinene

Also Found In: Pine needles, rosemary, and basil

Limonene

Also Found In: Lemons, limes, and oranges

Myrcene

Also Found In: Hops, lemongrass, and mangoes

Linalool

Also Found In: Lavender, coriander, and cinnamon

Terpinolene

Also Found In: Allspice, conifers, and sage

How do I consume my cannabis?

There are many different methods available to consume medicinal cannabis. Each option for medicinal cannabis ingestion may have a dramatic impact on its effectiveness. The Peace Naturals Project philosophy is simple, no matter your chosen method: Start slow and with small amounts. Each client is unique in how different cannabis varieties will affect them. By starting with small amounts and consuming slowly, our clients can mindfully self manage for relief and comfort.

Combusting

Combustion (or smoking) is a popular method of consuming medicinal cannabis and is fast-acting. However, smoking can feel harsher than other options and may mask some terpene flavours.

Vaporizing

Vaporization is achieved by heating cannabis below the point of combustion. Accessories called vaporizers transform cannabinoids and terpenes into vapor that can be inhaled without releasing other by-products that occur while smoking.

Cannabis Oils

Cannabis oils are designed to be ingested with food or sublingually. Unlike inhalation, cannabis oils may take from 30 minutes up to 2 hours before the onset of effects, and these effects can last longer (up to 8 hours).

Edibles & Topical Creams

Edibles & topical creams are not permitted to be sold under the ACMPR, but many clients make their own and recipes can be found online.

Is medicinal cannabis right for me?

Most of our clients have chosen to incorporate medicinal cannabis as part of their treatment plan only after exploring other alternatives with little or no success. When considering medical cannabis as an adjunct therapy, it is important to also evaluate your overall lifestyle.
