What is a blunt?
What is a blunt?A blunt is a marijuana cigarette (or just a joint) which has purely weed in it. In the UK, for example, most people who smoke weed mix it with tobacco. This is because it’s not readily available like it is the US, Netherlands etc. What is a blunt?
Normally, to roll a blunt, you would need something like blunt wrappers. This is because they burn in an incredibly annoying way if not rolled properly. They will burn a lot faster than ordinary joints also. Furthermore, a blunt will make you feel much higher than your average joint. What is a blunt? This is because the concentration of the THC is much higher in a blunt.
Why do people smoke blunts? People smoke blunts because they don’t want the things inside tobacco to be inside their lungs. Although smoking a blunt is by no means the healthiest way to smoke, it is a much healthier way than smoking a joint.
What is CBD?
When it comes to discussing the active ingredients of cannabis, THC has historically been the hot topic. You may have seen the acronym CBD thrown around. But what does CBD stand for, and what is CBD?
CBD is short for Cannabidiol and is one of the many ‘cannabinoids’ present in varying quantities within almost all cannabis. THC is the most commonly known of these cannabinoids and is also well-known as the most psychoactive part of cannabis.
There is much more scientific research available with regards to THC than there is for CBD. Fortunately, this fact is changing as cannabis becomes more widely legalized. The current research on CBD is looking at how it can be used to treat many diseases which in the past were thought to be largely untreatable. These diseases include Huntingdon’s disease, Dravet syndrome, and multiple sclerosis. CBD is not psychoactive like THC.
This means that it will not produce the same ‘high’ feeling associated with cannabis consumption. Therefore, many medical consumers will seek out strains which are known to be high in CBD and low in THC. This way they can be sure of receiving the medical benefits of cannabis consumption without having to worry about feeling ‘high’ all the time. A common way to consume CBD by itself is through the taking of CBD oil.
What is a vape?
There are many different ways to consume the herb. But what is a vape, exactly?
A vape is another word for vaporizer. It’s commonly known as a vape although don’t get this confused with vape wielding smokers whose vapes are filled with nicotine juice. I would say that the two main types of vaporizer are disposable and the non-disposable. Within these two headings there are definitely other types of vaporizer (Electric, combustion, pen, portable, volcano vapes etc) however, we are going to focus on these two.
A disposable vape is usually one which is strain specific. For example, you buy a Heavy Hitters vape cartridge and the concentrate you smoke is made by Heavy Hitters. This saves you from having to make the concentrate yourself which can be dangerous. You do also need a battery and normally companies have their own batteries which they recommend you use with their cartridges. It is possible to use other batteries with vapes. These vapes are very popular in places like California and they’re a great way to get started with vaping.
The other type of vape is, of course, the non-disposable vaporizer. These are the ones which I have always used, mainly because concentrates etc aren’t legal in the UK. The non-disposable vapes are used with your own choice of herb, hash or concentrate. You buy the vaporizer separately from the marijuana. You pack the vaporizer just like you pack a pipe or a bong and then you either press the button if it’s electric or use a lighter if it’s a combustion vaporizer.
Why use a vape?
So why would you use a vaporizer over smoking your herb? The main positive when it comes to using a vape is that it’s much healthier. As there’s no combustion of plant material then there are nowhere near as many harmful things produced (if any at all). This is why using a vape is so common in MMJ patients because they’re normally treating an illness which smoking would simply make worse. As the weed is heated up to a point which is high enough to make the components active, but not too high that they burn, it is arguably the safest way to take your medicine (except maybe eating it). I’ve often found that vaping weed actually produces much stronger and longer-lasting effects. It’s also a creeping high.
What is a Sativa?
There are over 2,000 different strains of cannabis. These are split into 3 distinct groups, indica, sativa and hybrid. So what is a Sativa?
What is a blunt? Cannabis forma sativa, or just Sativa, is a member of the cannabis plant family. The sativa plant is used for many different things, including making fibers, seed oil, food, and medicine. Sativa is the herb which hits mostly in the brain and is often connected to the ‘high’ feeling that most people are familiar with. Although indicas will also sometimes leave you feeling high, sativas are much more commonly associated with this feeling.
The difference in sativa vs. indica highs
The main difference between the two highs is where they hit you. Where sativas often hit the mind and leave your brain whirling, indicas will often leave your body feeling heavy and relaxed. Sativas are known for their powerful euphoric effects and when used correctly can often help to treat things like depression and anxiety. However, be warned, as a strong sativa to the novice may produce more anxiety, rather than taking it away. What is a blunt? Sativas are mostly associated with the following: What is a blunt? Providing you with a feeling of well-being, making you feel at ease, fighting depression, uplifting, energizing, stimulating and increasing creativity and focus.
The plants themselves are also slightly different, indicas are normally shorter and bushier than sativa plants. There is some debate as to whether or not indica plants and sativa plants are even the same species, what is certain is that both offer significant medical help when used properly.
What is an indica?
There are over 2,000 different strains of cannabis. These are split into 3 distinct groups, indica, sativa and hybrid. So what is an indica?
Cannabis forma indica or simply indica is one of the plants of the cannabis family. It is often (although by no means universally) cultivated to create hashish and often it has higher CBD levels than sativa. This larger amount of CBD contributes to the fact that indicas often have a more stoned feeling than sativas, which often give a high feeling. It is important to know the differences between sativa and indica as it will help you make a decision on which strain to smoke for your specific reasons. For example, if you’re feeling very anxious and would like to calm down you should smoke a nice sedating indica. Conversely, if you were to smoke a strong, heady sativa in this situation you may find it exacerbating your anxiety. Some people have tried weed before and don’t like it because they felt too overwhelmed.
The difference in sativa vs. indica highs
The main difference between the two highs is where they hit you. Where sativas often hit the mind and leave your brain whirling, indicas will often leave your body feeling heavy and relaxed. A nice body-heavy indica is often exactly what’s needed after a long day to help unwind and relax. They can be useful for a number of medical problems, however, this is also extremely strain reliant. Indicas are most commonly associated with: relieving body pain, relieving spasms, reducing seizures, relieving stress & anxiety and relaxing muscles. The plants themselves are also slightly different, indicas are normally shorter and bushier than sativa plants. There is some debate as to whether or not indica plants and sativa plants are even the same species, what is certain is that both offer significant medical help when used properly.
What is a hybrid?
There are over 2,000 different strains of cannabis. These are split into 3 distinct groups, indica, sativa and hybrid.
So what is a Hybrid?
Hybrids are, as you probably suspected, in the middle of the sativa-indica spectrum. Let’s say you want your body to be completely relaxed while your mind goes on an adventure of its own. If you smoke a hybrid, however, it’s possible that you get the effects of both and indica and a sativa. This is obviously dependant on the hybrid you smoke. Some hybrids lean more towards their sativa parents and some lean more towards their indica parents.
The hybrid class of the cannabis plant is much newer than sativa and indica. Hybrids were only recently brought into the cannabis scene as breeders began to experiment with strain types. This is also true of a number of strains there are. Originally there weren’t that many strains. Now there are around 2300 strains which can all be found on the Duber strain database. The reason hybrids have become so popular is that you can take the best of both worlds. For example, you can increase mental clarity without making yourself sedated.
What is a joint?
Ah the joint. The oldest and (in my opinion) the best way to smoke cannabis. A joint means different things in different countries. But in general, it’s easy to say what a joint means.
A joint is rolled up weed, in paper. These papers are special and are much thinner than the paper than you’re used to talking about. In the UK a joint means tobacco and weed mixed together in a paper. In the US a joint is purely weed, without any tobacco. A bit confusing, right? What is a blunt?
What is a blunt? But essentially, a joint is rolled up weed. Out of all the different ways you can smoke cannabis, joints are likely the most common, but also the most damaging to your health. This direct inhalation of burning plant.
