Storage Best Practices Unfortunately, cannabis doesn’t last forever – it’s perishable. It is a harvested crop, after all! So how should you keep it fresh? First, it’s important to understand what affects it. Heat Cannabis is pretty picky when it comes to temperature. When preserving your cannabis, it’s important that it’s not too hot or too cold. Why? When cannabis is exposed to high temperatures, cannabinoids start to degrade. 70 degrees is the ideal temperature for storage. Humidity Like heat, humidity directly impacts the potential degradation of cannabis. High humidity can introduce moisture back into the cannabis flowers, which means youâ€™re risking mold and ammoniated flavors. Low humidity, on the other hand, can lead to dry leaves, causing your cannabis to become fragile and brittle. When storing your cannabis, aim for a humidity level that spans somewhere between 59 to 63 percent range. Doing so will ensure that your cannabis
What are Terpenes? Terpenes are organic compounds found in all kinds of plants and are particularly important in medicinal cannabis. They give everything from rosemary to lemon their unique flavors and are responsible for the effects and aromas of different cannabis strains.Â How do terpenes work? Terpenes are not cannabinoids, but they do come from the same part of the medicinal cannabis plant and work on your endocannabinoid system. When terpenes are combined or taken with cannabinoids, each can boost the benefits of the others. This is known as the â€œentourage effectâ€.Â Â Are Indica and Sativa strains determined by terpene profile? The simple answer is yes. Terpenes are known to change the way cannabinoids, like THC, interact with our brain. The type of terpenes present in a strain, as well as the concentration of the terpenes, can determine the type of high you can potentially experience.Â Â Common Terpenes There are
There are three types of cannabis that youâ€™ll likely find in a medical cannabis dispensary: Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid, which is a mix of the two. These strain categories have unique qualities and offer certain benefits producing different results. They are used for a number of medicinal reasons.Â

What is dried flower? Cannabis flowers are typically green, little, and grow in bunches known as â€œbud.â€ Flower, or bud, is the smokable, trichome-covered part of a female cannabis plant. It must be dried and cured before consumption. Flower is the most popular form of cannabis because it can be consumed in a variety of ways. What are trichomes? Trichomes are the glistening translucent structures covering the flower. The glandular trichomes on and around the flowers produce oils containing THC, CBD, other cannabinoids and terpenes. Trichomes can be brittle or sticky, but itâ€™s also the part of the plant that has the majority of THC and other cannabinoids. Smoking whole-plant, flower cannabis gives patients the ability to better control their dose. A patient can use a small amount and wait mere moments to determine if they need more. This is because once inhaled, cannabinoids rapidly pass from the lungs to
