Types of products

There are many types of cannabis products that are now offered on the market with new products and uses for cannabis growing everyday. Smokey’s Cannabis Lounge sells a wide range of these products for a value you can’t beat.

 

Cannabis Flower

Sativa
  • Origin: Cannabis sativa is found primarily in hot, dry climates with long sunny days. These include Africa, Central America, Southeast Asia, and western portions of Asia.
  • Plant description: Sativa plants are tall and thin with finger-like leaves. They can grow taller than 12 feet, and they take longer to mature than some other types of cannabis.
  • Typical CBD to THC ratio: Sativa often has lower doses of CBD and higher doses of THC.
  • Commonly associated effects of use: Sativa often produces a “mind high,” or an energizing, anxiety-reducing effect. If you use sativa-dominant strains, you may feel productive and creative, not relaxed and lethargic.
  • Daytime or nighttime use: Because of its stimulating impact, you can use sativa in the daytime.
  • Popular strains: Three popular sativa strains are Acapulco Gold, Panama Red, and Durban Poison.

 

Indica
  • Origin: Cannabis indica is native to Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, and Turkey. The plants have adapted to the often harsh, dry, and turbulent climate of the Hindu Kush mountains.
  • Plant description: Indica plants are short and stocky with bushy greenery and chunky leaves that grow wide and broad. They grow faster than sativa, and each plant produces more buds.
  • Typical CBD to THC ratio: Indica strains often have higher levels of CBD and less THC.
  • Commonly associated effects of use: Indica is sought after for its intensely relaxing effects. It may also reduce nausea and pain and increase appetite.
  • Daytime or nighttime use: Because of its deep relaxation effects, indica is better consumed at night.
  • Popular strains: Three popular indica strains are Hindu Kush, Afghan Kush, and Granddaddy Purple.
Hybrid
  • Origin: Hybrids are typically grown on farms or greenhouses from a combination of sativa and indica strains.
  • Plant description: The appearance of hybrid strains depends on the combination of the parent plants.
  • Typical CBD to THC ratio: Many hybrid cannabis plants are grown in order to increase the THC percentage, but each type has a unique ratio of the two cannabinoids.
  • Commonly associated effects of use: Farmers and producers select hybrids for their unique impacts. They can range from reducing anxiety and stress to easing symptoms of chemotherapy or radiation.
  • Daytime or nighttime use: This depends on the predominant effects of the hybrid.
  • Popular strains: Hybrids are typically classified as indica-dominant (or indica-dom), sativa-dominant (sativa-dom), or balanced. Popular hybrids include Pineapple Express, Trainwreck, and Blue Dream.

 

Cannabis edibles

Cannabis edibles are a tasty alternative to smoking or vaporizing cannabis.

Made by infusing food with cannabis, edibles are one of the most popular ways of consuming cannabis. Many people prefer edibles because they are easier to ingest and offer a longer, more relaxing effect.

Keep in mind, however, that the “high” or effects from edibles can be difficult to predict. So before munching down on something tasty, do yourself a favour and get to know the facts.

Cannabis Extracts

Cannabis oils, concentrates, and extracts – these all serve as umbrella terms under which sits a vast array of different products: vape oil, hash, tinctures, dabs, CBD isolate, distillate, shatter, hash, oil, and every other product dreamed up by cannabis chemists.

 

Pre-Rolled Joints

More than pipes, bongs, edibles, oils, dab rigs, or any other means of consumption, the joint remains an icon. It may be the only method that, when pantomimed, says to the rest of the world “cannabis!”

A joint is cheap, discreet, disposable, and easily shared among friends. It requires neither the financial investment of a bong nor the time commitment of an edible.

Cannabis Tinctures

One of the main benefits of a tincture is that it’s very easy to take. Drops of tincture solution are squeezed out through an eyedropper syringe under your tongue. There, the solution is left to be absorbed (not swallowed) into your bloodstream.

Cannabis tinctures offer a long list of benefits including:

  • You feel the effects quickly
  • You can easily control the amount of tincture you take
  • Tinctures are discreet (meaning you don’t have to worry about standing out)
  • Tinctures are safe
  • Tinctures have a long shelf life when stored properly
