Need to brush up on your cannabis terms and facts? You have come to the right place.

 

CANNABINOIDS

Any of a group of closely related compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis.


CBD

Non-psychoactive chemical found in cannabis.


CLONE

A close is an exact replica of a host marijuana plant; it looks (and smokes) exactly like the marijuana plant that was used to create it.


CULTIVAR

A plant variety that has been produced in cultivation by selective breeding.


DAB

A dab is when you take a concentrate (ie: wax, shatter, rosin, oil) and place it on a very hot metal or quartz surface called a nail and inhale the vapor. The vapors, being derived from a concentrate will be much stronger in potency than the smoke or vapor from traditional cannabis flowers.


FEMINIZED SEEDS

Seeds that only produce female plants


GREENHOUSE

Growing cannabis in a greenhouse removes the complexity of designing an artificial indoor grow room. For many it is safer, more predictive and easier than growing outdoor.


HEMP

Non-THC producing cannabis


HYBRID

A combination of indica and sativa cultivars to create a balanced phenotype.


HYDROPONICS

The process of growing plants in sand, gravel, or liquid with added nutrients but without soil.


INDICA

The effect of indica is generally classified as a 'stone', meaning that it is a high more centered on the body. Indicas may enhance physical.


KIEF

Refers to the resinous trichomes of cannabis that may accumulate in the containers or be sifted from loose, dry, cannabis flower with a mesh screen or sieve.


PHENOTYPE

The set of observable characteristics of an individual resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment.


ROSIN

Rosin refers to an extraction process that utilizes a combination of head and pressure to nearly instantaneously squeeze resinous sap from your initial starting material. With cannabis, this method is incredibly versatile in that it can either be used with flowers or to clean up hash and kief into a full melt hash oil.


SATIVA

A sativa is a type of marijuana/plant that will typically produce a euphoric, energetic, cerebral high.


STRAIN

Varieties/named of cannabis cultivar.


THC

Psychoactive chemical found in cannabis.


THCA

A non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in raw and live cannabis. As the plant dries, THCA slowly converts to THC.


TRICHOME

They produce the hundreds of known cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids that make our favorite cannabis strains potent, unique and effective.


TYPE II

Cannabis plants with balanced ratios of CBD:THC, creating a euphoric high without raciness, paranoia or a tiresome comedown.
