Different Ways to Use Marijuana 

Medical marijuana (which will henceforth be referred to using the terminology medical cannabis) refers to the dried flowers of the cannabis plant. The flowering top or head of the cannabis plant is comprised of a number of chemically distinctive components known as cannabinoids. Two of these components are primarily responsible for the therapeutic effects seen with cannabis. The first component is THC (delta-9- tetrahydrocannabinol) and the second component is CBD (cannabidiol).

Cannabis A plant genus that produces species of flowering plants such as (1) Cannabis Sativa, (2) Cannabis Indica and (3) Cannabis Ruderalis. The cannabis plant goes through various stages before it is harvested.

Flowers Only produced by female plants, the flowers contain both THC and CBD. In preparing cannabis, the flowers are trimmed down to buds rich in cannabinoids.

Strain A strain is a variety of medical cannabis with a unique cannabinoid and terpene profile. There are presently over 200 strains available from licensed producers.

Leaves These are a widely recognized symbol of cannabis and can be five or seven pointed. Leaves possess some psychoactive and pharmacological properties, but not as much as the flowers.

Stem This is the central stalk that supports the entire plant and is comprised of strong fibers used to produce hemp. Roots of the cannabis plant can also be used to produce hemp.

Terpenes These give cannabis its smell and taste.

Trichomes These tiny nodules grow on the leaves, stems and flowers. They are most concentrated on the surface of the flower and are rich in both pharmacological and psychoactive components


Entourage Effect This hypothesis states that the combination of cannabinoids and terpenoids together may form a metabolic entourage that is responsible for the bioactivity of cannabis (Russo, 2011).

THC to CBD Ratio The ratio of THC to CBD plays a large role in determining the therapeutic effect of the cannabis plant. The higher the THC the more likely a person is going to experience psychoactive effects.

ACMPR Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulation. These Health Canada Regulations allow Canadians reasonable access to cannabis for medical purposes if they have been authorized by their healthcare practitioner.
