Body and Spirit Cannabis

Cannabis Education Hub

Both cannabis plants and people have chemical compounds in our systems called cannabinoids. In humans, they are called endogenous cannabinoids or endocannabinoids. In plants, they are called phytocannabinoids.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most common cannabinoid in cannabis, and although it can have an effect on both mind and body, it has little to no intoxicating effect. It’s found in the trichomes on the flower of many cannabis strains, including hemp.

What is Cannabis Oil?

Cannabis oil is a cannabis extract — a concentrated substance derived from the dried flower — that is mixed with a neutral oil, such as MCT or sunflower oil. It can be packaged in a bottle with a spray top or a dropper, and is taken orally. It can be used as an alternative to smoking or vaporizing dried cannabis.

Indica vs. Sativa

The two most common cannabis plant types are Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica. Less common is Cannabis ruderalis, which is used mostly by breeders to enhance their hybrids. There are hundreds of strains of plants- each bred for specific characteristics and often intended to produce specific effects for consumers.

Terpenes

Cannabis gets its scent from compounds in the plants called terpenes. Terpenes are fragrant oils found in many types of plants, especially coniferous (evergreen) varieties. The chemical compounds they secrete give fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs their signature scents.
