The Different Types of Cannabis

Cannabis flower is the most common type of cannabis. It is the least processed form of the plant and is typically dried and cured before being sold. Cannabis flowers can be consumed in a variety of ways, including smoking, vaporizing, and eating.


Indica strains are believed to have originated in the Hindu Kush region, which spans across Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. These plants tend to be shorter and bushier than sativas. The buds are also denser and heavier. Indicas typically have a higher THC content than sativas. This makes them more potent and their effects more physically relaxing.

Indica strains are often used to treat anxiety, pain, and insomnia. They can be helpful in treating symptoms of multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, and cancer.


Sativa plants are taller, have narrower leaves, and take longer to mature. They’re mostly found in hot, dry climates with long seasons. In general, sativas have higher levels of THC and lower levels of CBD. They’re known for their mentally stimulating effects, which can be beneficial for creativity, focus, and energy.

Some common sativa strains include:
-Banana Kush
-Durban Poison
-Jack Herer
-Lemon Haze
-Super Lemon Haze
-Strawberry Cough


Hybrid cannabis is a mix of sativa and indica strains, created to get the best of both worlds. The effects of hybrid cannabis can vary depending on the ratio of sativa to indica in the strain. A 50/50 ratio will produce a more balanced high, while a stronger sativa or indica dominant hybrid will produce more exaggerated effects.

The Different Parts of the Cannabis Plant

Cannabis flower is the most popular form of consuming the plant. It can be smoked, vaporized, or used to make edibles. The flower is the part of the plant that contains the most THC. THC is the compound in cannabis that gets users high.

The Flower

The flower is the reproductive organ of the cannabis plant, and it is from these flowers that we get sinsemilla (sin-seh-mee-yah), hash, and kief. The flower is also known as a “bud” or “cola,” and it is the most widely recognizable part of the plant. Flowers grow in clusters at the ends of branches and are composed of hundreds of small flowers, or “bracts,” that each contain both male and female reproductive organs. During flowering, the female bracts swell and mature into bulbs called “pistils,” which are covered with sticky trichomes that collect pollen from male flowers. After pollination, the bracts continue to swell and mature into “calyxes,” which enclose and protect the developing seeds.

The Trichomes

The trichomes are the shiny, sticky things that cover the surface of the cannabis plant. They are actually tiny resin glands that secrete a essential oils known as cannabinoids. These oils are what give cannabis its therapeutic properties. The trichomes also give cannabis its characteristic aroma and flavor. In addition to cannabinoids, the trichomes also produce terpenes, which are responsible for the plant’s unique smell.

The Resin

Cannabis resin is the sticky, gooey, trichome-covered substance that is produced by the cannabis plant. It is also known as hash, hashish, or simply as “resin.” The resin is produced by the plant as a way to ward off predators and protect the plant’s precious flowers. When the flowers are ready for harvest, they are covered in these trichomes, which can be removed and collected to produce resin.

The quality of the resin depends on a number of factors, including the strain of cannabis, the quality of the starting material, and the method used to collect it. The most common method of collecting resin is by sifting it from dried cannabis flowers. This can be done by hand or with a special machine called a “hash machine.” The Machine uses agitation and screens to shake the trichomes from the dried flower matter.

Once collected, the resin can be used in a variety of ways. It can be smoked on its own or added to joints or pipes; it can be vaporized; it can be used to make edibles; it can be infused into oils or tinctures; and it can even be used topically.

The Different Uses of Cannabis Flower

Cannabis flowers, also known as buds, are the most popular type of cannabis product. They can be smoked, vaporized, or used to make edibles. Cannabis flowers have a unique aroma and flavor that can be enjoyed by cannabis enthusiasts. Let’s learn more about cannabis flowers and their different uses.


Smoking is the most popular way to consume cannabis, especially flower. People have been smoking cannabis for centuries, and it is one of the simplest ways to enjoy its benefits. Smoking flower requires nothing more than some rolling papers and a lighter, and it can be done anywhere.

Many people enjoy smoking because it allows them to control their dosage and experience the effects of cannabis more immediately than other methods. It is also one of the most efficient ways to consume cannabis, as the smoke contains a high concentration of THC.

Smoking flower can have some drawbacks, however. It can be harsh on the lungs, and some people do not enjoy the taste or smell of smoke. It can also be difficult to control your dosage when smoking, as it is hard to know how much THC you are inhaling.


Vaping cannabis flower is becoming more and more popular as people become more health-conscious. Vaping heats the flower just enough to release the THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids in the form of a fine mist that can be inhaled. This method is much healthier than smoking because it doesn’t involve burning the plant material, which can release harmful toxins.


Cannabis flower can be used in a variety of ways, including smoking, vaporizing, tinctures, topicals, and edibles. Edibles are foods and drinks that have been infused with cannabis. Cannabinoids like THC and CBD are fat-soluble, so they are often infused into oils and butter (known as cannabutter), which can then be used to make all kinds of delicious recipes.

When consuming edibles, it is important to start with a low dose (5-10 mg is a good starting point) and wait at least 2 hours before consuming more. The effects of edibles can be very strong and long-lasting (up to 12 hours), so it is important to be patient and take it slow.


You can find cannabis-infused topicals such as lotions, salves, creams, and oils in many dispensaries. These products are applied to the skin and don’t produce any psychoactive effects. Some people use them to relieve pain and inflammation associated with conditions like arthritis, while others use them to moisturize and soften the skin.

Cannabis-infused topicals are made by extracted cannabinoids from the cannabis plant and then mixing them with a carrier oil like coconut oil or olive oil. The cannabinoids in the topical bind to cannabinoid receptors in the skin, providing relief from pain and inflammation.
