To many the word weed is associated with smoking. And it is also true that weed has become popular through the act of smoking it. However, weed was historically used for medical purposes.
The use of weed dates all the way back to 2800 B.C. in China, where the cannabis plant was ingested as a medicine for various health problems. Throughout history and throughout the world, weed has continuously had a place in different aspects of life.
Nowadays, weed can be found in all sorts of products and forms. The vast variety of products on the market has made weed more widely known, but for many it still seems confusing as to what weed is and what it is doing in so many different products.
The different shapes and forms of weed
If you visit any type of weed dispensary in Canada, you will find a vast variety of weed products. All of them contain weed, but that does not necessarily mean that you will get high or feel any other sensation when enjoying the product.
Some of the most common products vary from pre-rolls, dried flowers, concentrates of weed, hash and vapes. For many of these products, you will have to ask regarding the level of CBD or THC, to determine whether it is a product which will get you high or not.
But you can also find delicious beverages, which you can enjoy on a hot summer day. With options such as ice tea, sparkling juice and rootbeer, there is an option for any taste.
You can also find what is called edibles. These are edible items, which contain weed. Here you can find chews, sours, chocolate, caramels, cookies and much more.
Am I going to get high?
If you are not entirely sure about what it means to get high or not from weed, don’t worry about it, because it is very simple. CBD stands for cannabidiol and is being added to a great variety of products and other food items.
The psychoactive cannabinoid, which is the chemical that makes you high, is called THC. Whenever THC is added to a product, that indicates that you will get high from consuming this product.
If you are looking to enjoy weed without getting high, you should look for any product that only contains CBD.
