The types of cannabis

Sativa strains of cannabis are known for support with productivity, depression and stress relief, and can increase focus and creativity.
Generally, indica strains are known to be deeply calming and relaxing; they provide more of a “full body effect” high. 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 mainly for CBD products. The isolated cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive compound, known for its benefits without the “high” that the THC compound brings. CBD can help reduce pain, nausea, inflammation, and is known to support relief of anxiety, migraines and assist in preventing seizures.

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.
