Why Choose Cannabis?

Cannabis could aid us in so many ways, but due governmental limitations we have been unable to study it until recent years. Now that we can finally research it with more depth, we are discovering that there are a multitude of potential benefits…

Consumers have been seeking out this plant in an attempt to deal with stress, anxiety, depression and appetite-loss. Researchers are studying the possible benefits of marijuana to mitigate and control chronic pain, digestion and insomnia, though these studies are not complete. And that is only putting our toe in the water.

The main reason for the big change is the switch to conscious consumerism. People want less chemicals entering their bodies. This means moving away from pharmaceuticals, with all the side-effects and dependency, to something more natural.

But there are so many words out there! CBD, CBD, Terpenes, Cannabinoids. Where do you start? Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation on the web, so checking your sourcing and making sure your information is coming from a reputable source is important.

Whether you need a tincture, topical, RSO or flower will vary depending on your needs. There are also a number of other factors to take into consideration. Ratios of CBD and THC will be unique to you as well. Cannabinoids that are lesser-known, like CBD, CBG, and CBN, will play a key role in your recovery. The terpenes of the strain you are using are another factor to consider. All of these variables together determine the ultimate effect of the strain/product.
