Kush, pot, ganja, hemp or marijuana, which ever term you prefer they were the great unmentionables. For years we have heard the whispers about cannabis and its curative ability and to date people still wonder if this is a fad or a miracle cure. At last cannabis gets to debut just how majestic it truly is.
Let’s start from basics and ease the confusion we see and hear about cannabis. There are many different species found in the Cannabaceae plant family. Hemp and marijuana are two of these. The species Cannabis Sativa which is the tallest species is known for its energising, invigorating effects which can reduce stress and bring about focus. Cannabis Indica which is a shorter, bushier species, allows for a full body experience, increasing relaxation and reducing insomnia. Sativa is known to contain more THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) basically the substance that makes you feel euphoric or high as opposed to Indica which often has higher CBD properties than THC.
So where does hemp fit into this picture? Hemp is a variation of Sativa and was cultivated for fibre as early as 2800BCE. The seeds are a source of protein, fibre and magnesium. Hemp’s chemical structure is different and contains less than 0.3% THC as opposed to marijuana.
CBD stands for cannbidiol which is an active ingredient of cannabis, derived from hemp. There are over 113 cannabinoids but CBD and THC are currently the most well-known and researched. CBD can be extracted and mixed with carrier oils such as coconut or hemp to form CBD oil.
You may ask what can these amazing cannabinoids help treat. Well just about everything given in the right therapeutic dosage. Our in-store customers and patients bear witness to this. The right cannabinoid can help manage many illnesses. The main conditions we have seen a vast improvement are those suffering with anxiety or depression.

Those patients who have compromised immune systems have had positive responses with CBD, as it aids in regulating the function of the immune system. Metabolic processes and cells are able to communicate clearly, allowing our body to maintain a state of homeostasis, known as balance.
More serious conditions like ADHD, seizures, epilepsy, chronic pain or alleviating cancer related symptoms, can also be managed using a CBD product.
