As Nature Intended

MCC's GUIDE TO CANNABIS

WE

Are made to be together. 

Humans and Cannabis are literally made for each other. Over 500 Million years ago, evolution created the Endocannabinoid system in all vertebrates—mammals, bird, reptiles, amphibians, fish, etc.

 

Scientists have found that the receptors are present throughout the body, including our skin, immune cells, bone, fat tissue, liver, pancreas, skeletal muscle, heart, blood vessels, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract.11 We now know the endocannabinoid system is involved in a wide variety of processes, including pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproductive function. Endocannabinoids are arguably one of the most widespread and versatile signaling molecules known to man.

FAST FORWARD

Today, in many states, Cannabis is legal for both medical and recreational use. As of January 1, 2018, it is legal for any adult, 21 and over, to buy cannabis in California – no medical recommendation required while other states vary in legalization. 

If this is your first time exploring cannabis, or just want to brush up, here are some answers to some basic questions everyone should know.

The cannabis industry is booming, and as it expands you may have already noticed more and more products that come in a variety of shapes, sizes, flavors and textures: flowers, concentrates, edibles, vape pens, topicals and more. There are so many out there that even a seasoned “cannaseur” may have questions.

Below you willl find a top-level overview of the types of products that Mohave Cannabis Co sells.

PRODUCT TYPES

FLOWER

Flower is the trimmed and cured bud of a female

cannabis plant. As with wine grapes, there are

different varietals of cannabis flowers, which

we call strains.

 

Each strain has a unique flavor and combination

of active ingredients, and provides a subtly

different effect. Exploring different strains

is one of the real joys of cannabis

consumption.​

CONCENTRATES & EXTRACTS

Cannabis concentrates are several times stronger

than cannabis flowers.

 

They are made by separating the tiny crystals that

sit on the surface of the plant—trichomes— from the

underlying, inert vegetable material. Most concentrates

are made with solvents like butane, but some are made

simply with heat, pressure and water. Concentrates can

be found in many different forms including shatter, wax,

rosin and sauce. All concentrates made by Mohave

Cannabis Co have been rigorously tested to ensure

they are free of any residual solvents.

PRE ROLLS

Pre-rolls are joints filled with cannabis flower.

They are also sometimes enhanced with cannabis

concentrates. Pre-rolls provide the most traditional

way to enjoy cannabis, without the messy rolling.

OUR VERNACULAR

STRAINS

The different varietals of cannabis flowers are called strains.

 

Every strain has a unique flavor and combination of active ingredients, and provides a subtly different effect.  There are thousands of different cannabis strains out there and most of them have names that were coined by the growers who brought us the specific genetics from that plant. Some popular examples include Blue Dream, Sour Diesel and OG Kush.

Some products are always strain-based, such as flower and concentrates, while others are based on Indica/Sativa, and still others (mostly edibles) generally do not indicate a strain or plant type.

TERPENES

Secreted in the same glands that produce cannabinoids like THC and CBD, terpenes are aromatic oils that color cannabis varieties with distinctive flavors like citrus, berry, mint, and pine.

Terpenes may play a key role in differentiating the effects of various cannabis strains. Some terpenes might promote relaxation and stress-relief, while others potentially promote focus and acuity.

THC VS. CBD

The cannabis plant can contain up to 150 active ingredients, known as cannabinoids.

 

THC and CBD are the most commonly known, and all Mohave Cannabis Co products are tested and labeled with their content. These test results indicate the strength and nature of the likely effect. THC-rich strains are the most euphoric. CBD-rich strains are more restorative, with less euphoria or none at all. Many consumers prefer the balanced effect of a 1:1 ratio—equal parts THC and CBD.

ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM

Every person and mammal has an endocannabinoid system. The ECS, which was discovered in 1979, is a biological system that directly connects our body and mind and is key to understanding how a state of mind can directly promote health or illness.

HOW AND WHERE DO I CONSUME?

Although cannabis is now legal in California, it is not legal to consume in public places or to drive while under the influence. While other states have different laws around recreational vs. medicinal, the laws around recreational cannabis consumption, no matter where you live are just like alcohol. You should consume in a private location, such as your home, or a friend’s home.
