We strive to understand each customer’s personal objectives and sensitivities in order to help them make informed decisions about the products and delivery systems that are right for them

At Body and Spirit Cannabis, we understand that THC is a psycho-active drug, and that consumers need to know what is in the products they purchase in order to use them carefully and responsibly. We know there is value in knowledge and accurate information, and we invest to make sure that our customers know the cannabinoid potencies in every product that we sell, before the customer buys the product. Another unique feature of our store is how we empower education, and that we offer students and educators a 10% discount on all products in our store.

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.


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.
