General Information
Individual responses to cannabis will vary depending on factors such as your age, sex, any pre-existing medical conditions, THC and CBD content, frequency of use, consumption of food, alcohol and other drug and health products. Each experience can also differ from one to the next whether you’re new to cannabis or an avid connoisseur.
Cannabis 101
How Does Weed Create a High, and What Does it Feel Like?
Cannabinoids and terpenes are compounds from the marijuana plant that are responsible for creating a buzz. The high is created by the cannabinoid THC, which is the psychoactive component. The high may be different for each individual, ranging from elation to creativity or focus. Other variables such as mindset, setting, dosage, type of strain, method of consumption will factor into your experience.

CBD is the other notable cannabinoid. Unlike THC, CBD does not create a high in the consumer. It’s being studied for the potential medical benefits it may provide. Terpenes are responsible for scent compounds of cannabis. Like a fine wine, the aroma of the plant can be complex and diverse.

Cannabinoids and terpenes work together to activate and interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system – this is what creates the buzz when consuming cannabis.
How to Consume Cannabis
Inhalation can produce a rapid effect, and can be smoked through joints, pipes, bongs, and bubblers. It’s recommended to wait 5 to 15 minutes after each inhalation to gauge its effect.

Ingestibles come in many forms such as oral capsules, oils and edible products like gummies, brownies, chocolates, cookies and beverages. Consuming orally takes longer to enter your system, therefore it’s recommended to wait at least 1 hour before consuming more.
Start Low and Go Slow
If you’re unsure of how cannabis will affect you, we recommend you start with a product that is lower in THC potency. Our knowledgeable team can help you find a product to match your desired experience. When in doubt, consult your doctor prior to using cannabis.

Is There Anything Else I Need to Know?
You can legally buy and carry up to 30g. Keep in mind that it’s illegal to take cannabis and CBD products across the border, whether you’re entering or leaving Canada. Store your dried cannabis in an airtight container away from light, but not in your fridge or freezer. For other products such as oils, it’s best to follow the manufacturer’s label instructions.

Consume Responsibly
Please plan ahead if you need transportation, or contact a bud if you need a ride. Impaired is impaired – it’s illegal to drive high.
