Cannabis has been used by humans for thousands of years as both a medicinal and recreational plant. It contains more than 100 different compounds or “cannabinoids” such as THC, CBD, THC-V, and CBN. These compounds interact with a system in the body referred to as the endocannabinoid system, found in humans as well as several different animals. These potent compounds are contained within the flower of the cannabis plant, which is also the part of the plant that humans use most frequently. Cannabis flower can be smoked or vaporized, as well as processed into oils, tinctures, topicals, edibles, and other products. Depending on your tolerance and preferred effect, you may prefer cannabis strains that are either of the indica or sativa type. Read on to learn more.
How long does cannabis flower last?
Cannabis flower that has been cured for consumption can last for several weeks or even months depending on how it is stored. To maximize the quality of your cannabis flower, be sure that it is exposed to as little air or sunlight as possible. It is recommended that cannabis flower be stored at room temperature in air-tight, opaque jars or containers that are not made of plastic. Cannabis flower should not be stored in the fridge or freezer, or in a particularly warm or humid area.
What are the types of cannabis flower?
Cannabis flower is generally described as being either indica dominant, sativa dominant, or hybrid, meaning it contains qualities of both indica and sativa strains. During cultivation, indica and sativa plants have slight differences in terms of appearance. Where indica plants are short and stout with broad leaves and grow better in cooler climates, sativa plants grow tall and slender with thinner leaves, and are more successful in tropical climates. Plants that have qualities of both indica and sativa plants are considered hybrids. Since cannabis has been bred and crossed so frequently, most strains on the market today would be considered “hybrid” by breeders, however some may be slightly more uplifting or sedating making them either sativa or indica dominant. Generally, the effects of indica strains are associated with relaxation and sedation, while sativa strains are more cerebral and uplifting. However, this isn’t always the case. In fact, some cannabis consumers experience the opposite. The best way to find out for yourself is by trial and error, just be sure to follow the golden rule of cannabis consumption: start low and go slow. That means start with a strain that is low in THC to minimize the likelihood of any negative effects, and consume slowly, perhaps one puff at a time. Most modern cannabis is bred to maximize THC content, however some strains are CBD-dominant, and contain no THC at all.
