WHAT IS MARIJUANA?





  • Marijuana, in all its forms, comes from the Cannabis plant. 

  • Marijuana contains two major psychoactive compounds, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD) and at least 60 minor related chemicals.

    โ€ข The dried buds of the female plant contain the highest concentration of psychoactive compounds in a naturally occurring product. These buds are usually what is sold and consumed as marijuana.

WHAT IS THE
DOSAGE OF MARIJUANA?





EVERY INDIVIDUAL REACTS DIFFERENTLY TO EVERY CHEMICAL, this information is intended
to describe the range of dosages others report using and it should not be construed as a recommendation of any sort. Individuals can respond very differently to the same dosage.

As with all โ€˜naturalโ€™ drugs, dosage can vary significantly from one plant to another (or even one part of the plant to another. In states where Marijuana is legal, standardized oil cartridges (with a known amount of THC and CBD per milliliter) are now available, allowing for known dosage for the first time.

HARM REDUCTION
TIPS FOR MARIJUANA





  • Some people feel uncomfortable, nauseous, or paranoid after using cannabis.

  • Vaporizers reduce the impact on the lungs when compared to smoking cannabis.

  • Because oral consumption of marijuana can take over an hour to become noticeable, it is extremely common for users to consume additional doses before the first begins to take effect, leading to a much more intense experience than was desired.
