The BaM Team is extremely knowledgeable about cannabis and the effects on the human endocannabinoid system. We look forward to meeting you for a personal consultation and sharing our years of experience with CBD, THC and various cannabis offerings. Below is some basic information on various aspects of the cannabis plant.

There are around 66 naturally occurring Cannabinoid compounds produced by the Cannabis plant that interact with a network of receptors in our body, known as the endocannabinoid system.

Most cannabinoids exist at very low levels, specifically in commercial cannabis products, making it difficult for scientists to accurately detect them.

“Cannabinoids are broadly known for their anti-seizure, anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, anti-fungal, and anti-cancer effects and science has just scratched the surface. How much these effects are expressed is a result of the entourage effect. The entourage effect states that the cannabinoids work better in tandem than they do alone.” – cannainsider.com

THC

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the chemical compound in cannabis responsible for psychoactive effects. THC binds with the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain producing a high or sense of euphoria.

THCA

Tetrahydrocannabinol Acid (THCa) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in raw and live cannabis plants. With the use of drying and/or heating THCa can be decarboxylated and converted into THC.

CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabis compound that has significant benefits but does not consist of any psychoactive properties. CBD may even counteract the psychoactive effects of THC.

CBDA

CBDA (cannabidiolic acid) is produced by both cannabis and hemp. CBDA converts to the better known cannabinoid CBD (cannabidiol) over time and when exposed to heat.

CBGA

CBGA is the chemical precursor of THCA, CBDA, and CBCA. Enzymes within cannabis turn CBGA into either THCA or CBDA, which can be subsequently decarboxylated (“activated”) by light or heat to create THC or CBD.

CBC

Cannabichromenic (CBC), binds poorly to CB1 receptors in the brain, but it binds well with other pain-related receptors, helping to increase the body’s levels of natural endocannabinoids. Non-psychoactive with a host of potential therapeutic applications.

Since many terpenes are associated with various types of plants and herbs used in naturopathic remedies, some theorize that terpenes play a role in the effect of cannabis. For instance, linalool, a common terpene found in lavender, may be associated with relaxation. Another common theory is “the entourage effect,” referring to the possibility that cannabinoids and terpenes work together in the overall effect of cannabis. As of now, these are just theories – the impact of terpenes beyond flavor and aroma has yet to be scientifically proven.

Strain Categories

Indica

Typically produces a full body sensation, often used for nighttime medicating.

Indica plants are short and stocky, growing faster then sativa plants.

 

Hybrid

Crossbreed strains, between and indica and sativa plant,  providing a balanced effect.

Within this subset, there can be Indica-dominant and Sativa dominant strains.

Sativa

Typically produces a cerebral (head) sensation, often used for daytime medicating.

Indica plants are tall and thin, often containing lower doses of CBD.

Cannabis Facts

The side effects of cannabis are minimal when used at low doses and include dry mouth and fatigue

At higher doses, side effects include dizziness, paranoia, and psychoactive effects

The Cannabis plant was used medically for centuries around the world until the early 1900s

Tetrahydrocannabinols are the psychoactive compound in marijuana

Cannabis contains more than 400 chemical compounds, called cannabinoids

The potential benefits of cannabis vary from one person to another and can be influenced by factors such as medical history and family predisposition
