Frequently Asked Questions

Health Canada conducts several routine quality control checks to ensure our cannabis is top quality and safe to consume. The regulations strictly enforce good production practices.

There is no such thing as an expiration date for cannabis. It is a dried herb and can last a long time if aged correctly and stored properly. Here are some tips:

  • No plastic bag storage
  • Keep out of reach of children
  • Airtight glass jars are best
  • Size matters, try matching the container with the volume of cannabis to be used (too large a container will allow more oxygen in)
  • Keep in a cool dark place
  • Temperature, keep below 21oC / 70oF
  • Humidity, about 60%; above 65% may present a problem with mold
  • Do NOT use the fridge or freezer
  • Store in separate containers

Genus: Cannabis

Species: C. indica, C. sativa, C. ruderalis

Contrary to popular belief, the species of cannabis you consume doesn’t indicate the varying effects you can expect to experience.

That’s right, indica doesn’t chill you out, nor does sativa energize you. Regardless of species, it’s a strain’s unique mix of cannabinoids and terpenes that gets you in the groove. In fact, most modern-day strains of cannabis are crossbreeds (a mix of species), with very few linking back to their pure lineage.

Taxonomy terms such as indica or sativa are best used to categorize the varying climates, appearances, origins and growth patterns of each variety. The combination of cannabinoids and terpenes present, regardless of species, is the best predictor of consumption effects.

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds which are created both within the body (endocannabinoids) and by plants (phytocannabinoids). The most well-known of those is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and increasingly cannabidiol (CBD). Over 100 cannabinoids have been identified so far, which all have distinct properties.

Cannabinoids are produced within trichomes, which are the tiny sticky, shiny, crystalline outgrows found on the cannabis leaf. These trichomes are most abundant in unfertilized, female cannabis plants. Male plants are undesirable in terms of their recreational and therapeutic uses since they contain almost no THC and CBD.

The interaction of the cannabinoids, namely THC, and receptors in the brain are what cause the cannabis ‘high’.
