LEARN ABOUT CANNABIS WITH CANNABIS CURED
Cannabis Cured in Thomaston, ME & Bangor, ME is devoted to constant growth and education on medical marijuana and flower cultivation–designed to be processed into the most effect-specific medicine possible. Having knowledge of some of the differences in strains is an important part of this process. The most notable differences between sativa and indica cannabis plants are their appearances. Sativa cannabis plants have longer flowering cycles with thinner leaves, and are a taller plant. Indica cannabis plants have shorter flowering cycles with noticeably wide leaves, and are a shorter plant.
THE TYPES OF CANNABIS
In general terms, sativa strains are known to be stimulating, uplifting, and a great daytime strain option. Sativa strains can be more uplifting and energizing, and are known for the “head high” they provide. Sativa strains of cannabis are known to support productivity, depression, stress relief, and can increase focus, energy, and creativity.
Generally, indica cannabis strains are known to be deeply calming, tension-easing and relaxing; they provide more of a “full body effect” high. Indica strains are often a great evening strain option and helpful with pain. Indica strains of cannabis are known for support with anxiety, insomnia, nausea, chronic pain, and increasing appetite.
CBD or Hemp
CBD flower or in some cases, “hemp”, is an non-intoxicating extract harvested for CBD products. The isolated cannabidiol is a compound known for its benefits without the “high” that the THC compound brings. CBD can help reduce pain, nausea, inflammation, and support relief of anxiety, migraines and assist in preventing seizures.
IT'S NOT ALL THE SAME
Not all sativa and indica strains of cannabis are created equal or fall neatly into their generally known attributes. Having our experienced staff and caregivers benefits our patients because we are able to maximize the highest medicinal benefits of our wide array of organic medical marijuana plants. Having our educated and experienced growers, along with our trusted high-quality processing, allows us to guarantee an organic, high-quality medical cannabis that makes it possible to utilize specially created strains designed to be as effect-specific as possible. We have a wide variety of organic medical cannabis products, extracts, tinctures, concentrates, vapes, and even glass pieces to allow our patients access to the best, most effective medicine for their chronic pain and other conditions, using their preferred method of administration.
Curious About THC?
We are always willing to educate anyone who would like more knowledge about THC’s benefits in healing and the ability to dose with THC without getting “high,” and still maintaining the ability to safely submit to drug tests. There is additional research that points to the benefits of combining the properties of CBD with THC and other cannabis compounds; because these grow together in nature, supplementing CBD solutions with a small amount of THC (below .2mg) proves to act as the ultimate catalyst; releasing the full benefits of the extract without the psychoactivity. On the reverse side, THC’s psychoactive effects can also be more controlled when combined with certain amounts of CBD. As with our other strains of medical cannabis, we have something for every need and are dedicated to finding what will work best with your chronic conditions or needs.
CBD Products at Cannabis Cured
Cannabis Cured in Thomaston & Bangor, ME is continuing to expand on both our knowledge and inventory of CBD products. We understand that some medical cannabis patients prefer to veer away from the THC aspect of medical marijuana, so we are always working to offer high-quality, expertly processed CBD products.
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, and is one of many highly medicinal compounds found in cannabis that has known beneficial properties. CBD makes up a large amount of the phytocannabinoids in cannabis plant extracts. CBD can support a feeling of calmness and pain relief but does not have any of the psychoactive effects that other marijuana compounds and molecules provide. Some patients prefer to utilize CBD isolated from any other compounds or terpenes, often referred to as isolates or tinctures. These isolated forms of CBD guarantee the separation of any undesired or unnecessary THC “high”; keeping the consumer clear-headed, calm, and present.
