Cannabis Frequently Asked Questions
Cannabis is a tall plant with a stiff upright stem, divided serrated leaves, and glandular hairs. It is used to produce hemp fiber and as a psychotropic drug. Flowering buds are dried before consumption.
Some consumers use cannabis for qualifying medical conditions. Medical cards are available for those who need cannabis for medicinal purposes. Medical card holders have purchase limits that are higher than those of a recreational customer. Increased medical limits include 24x more flower, increased THC mg limits in edibles, and higher purchase limits for plants and seeds. The state also allows for medical card holders to avoid paying the marijuana state tax.
Indica dominant strains tend to produce a more relaxing, comfortable, and sedative high. Sativa dominant strains are known for their uplifting, cerebral, and euphoric effects. Hybrid cannabis strains tend to provide a “best of both worlds” effect.
A cannabis topical generally comes in the form of a salve, spray, lotion or rub. Cannabis topicals are intended for treating an area of discomfort. These products should not provide any psychoactive effects.
An edible product is simply a food product that contains cannabinoids. Cannabis edibles are known for strong, and long-lasting effects. Dosing with edibles can be inconsistent for each user based on their unique metabolism and chemical make-up. If new to edibles, it is recommended to start out slow and follow labeling recommendations.
THC concentrates are any cannabis products that have a high concentration of the cannabinoid. THC is extracted from cannabis flower and, depending on the method of extraction, can come in many different forms, such as hash, oil, and tinctures.
Dabbing is a method of consuming concentrated cannabis oil, also known as wax, shatter, or hash by dropping a small amount onto a hot surface and allowing it to vaporize. Dabbing allows the user to get nothing but the oil’s potent effect and flavor.
The term “cannabinoid” refers to one of several chemical compounds found in cannabis. When you smoke, vaporize or ingest cannabis, these are the chemicals that interact with cells in your body to produce unique effects and benefits.
Tinctures are liquids made by dissolving cannabis material in alcohol. Tinctures are available in very high concentrations (up to 1,000 Mg THC) and are very easy to dose. This makes tinctures great for someone looking to consume a specific cannabinoid dosage on a consistent basis.
Not necessarily. THC heavy cannabis products tend to produce a similar psychoactive “high”. Products low in THC and higher in cannabinoids like CBD tend to be much less psychoactive with more comforting, soothing, or pain-relieving effects. We have many users who visit our stores in search of a product with no discernible psychoactive effects.
A terpene is an aromatic compound found in the essential oils of the cannabis plant. Terpenes are responsible for the unique smell and flavor of individual cannabis strains. Terpenes also provide unique effects and benefits when consumed alone or in conjunction with cannabinoids.
CBD is a separate cannabinoid that naturally occurs within the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive.
Cannabis can stay in a user’s system for 30 days or more. This depends on factors like the user’s body type and metabolism, exercise levels, and the sensitivity of a given test.
It depends. Depending on a user’s individual makeup an edible could provide a range of effects. Some user’s find success circumventing the liver’s first pass effect via sublingual (under the tongue) or transdermal (absorption to the bloodstream through the skin) delivery methods. Some users also report stronger edible effects when eaten in conjunction with food.

At Chalice Farms we do not recommend that you combine cannabis and alcohol. Cannabis and alcohol have a synergistic effect that can make both products much more unpredictable.
