Shopping Around: How to Pick the Highest Quality Flower

PRODUCTS

When it comes to purchasing cannabis flower it can be a little tricky and even a bit over whelming when you first start out. Walking into dispensaries, you have an immense amount of strains to choose from divided into Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid categories. These plants then come along with a varied array of terpene and cannabinoid profiles that alter their aroma and the effect of each one. How was it grown, how does it smell, how does it look? When you begin sift through all of the information to make the right decision for your cannabis purchase there are a few telltale signs to look for both at the dispensary and at home.

How Do Terpenes Affect the Human Body?

PRODUCTS

While THC and CBD contribute heavily to the potential benefits of cannabis such as euphoria, anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, body relief, etc., we are finding that terpenes are not only the strongest determining factors when creating a plants flavors and aroma, but also boost and modify the effects of the other terpenes and cannabinoids produced in the human body. Terpenes can be inhaled, taken sublingually, absorbed topically, or utilized transdermally. With a molecular size small enough to break the blood-brain barrier, inhaled terpenes are processed through the olfactory and respiratory systems stimulating the mind and body. When ingested sublingually, they can be quickly taken up into the bloodstream having effects felt within minutes. Topical applications allow for terpenes to be directly absorbed into the skin providing relief for specific targeted areas on the body. While transdermal applications work in the same manner, they are meant instead to enhance an entire system like digestion or issues of chronic pain rather than a single area.
