  • These are two of the many naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis plant. CBD is Cannabidiol and THC is Tetrahydrocannabinol. THC is the psychoactive part of the plant, which makes you feel pleasurable and CBD does not have any psychoactive effects and often gets utilized for pain management. 
  • Understanding the strain of cannabis will give you a better idea of the effects it can have. Indica strains provide a calming effect, while Sativa strains produce an energizing effect. You will also come across a hybrid which is a cross between the two strains. 
  • An edible is a form of cannabis that you can eat. They come in various forms, such as cookies or gummies, and contain either THC, CBD or both. A cannabis edible high can last significantly longer than a smoked high from cannabis and can take longer to take effect. It is important to remember to start slowly when consuming edibles as everyone’s bodies react differently.
  • Cannabis topicals are products such as lotions and oils that have been infused with cannabis extracts. Topicals are meant to be applied to the external body surface where you would like to feel the effect.

  • Combining cannabis and alcohol can elevate the felt effects and lead to extreme intoxication, dizziness and nausea. Combining cannabis with alcohol can also increase the risk of vulnerable people experiencing psychotic symptoms. Combining the two further lowers concentration and reaction times.

    Tobacco is harmful on its own, and the co-use of tobacco and cannabis has been associated with developing a dependence on either substance, negative mental health outcomes, engagement in other risk-taking behaviours, and increased difficulty stopping cannabis use. There is some evidence that suggests combining tobacco with cannabis can lead to taking up cigarette smoking. In addition, using both substances may also lead to increased health risks compared to using just one or the other, such as the impact on the respiratory system.

  • When used properly, cannabis may relieve symptoms of pain and stiffness. This means that people with mobility issues may find that they can be more active when using cannabis.
  • Some experts suspect that younger people who use cannabis may consume less alcohol than those who don’t. This means that they’re not taking in calories from alcoholic drinks, which could contribute to lower BMIs.

  • Studies show that people are more likely to overeat and rely on comfort foods when stressed.

    It’s no secret that weed can ease anxiety and help calm you when you’re feeling stressed. Some believe that this might replace stress eating for some people.

  • Poor sleep can be a factor in weight gain. There’s some evidence that cannabis may improve insomnia. Plus, it may help reduce stress and pain, two of the main culprits behind poor sleep.
  • There’s some evidence that cannabis interacts with cannabinoid receptor 1 , which plays a role in metabolism and food intake. High amounts of cannabis appear to increase metabolism and reduce energy storage, resulting in a lower BMI.

    Using cannabis doesn’t cause sudden weight loss. But experts believe it may help with some underlying factors that can contribute to weight gain in some people.

    Much more research is needed to fully understand the link between cannabis use and weight.

  • The process of vaping cannabis involves heating cannabis flower or extracts to a temperature that turns the active compounds (cannabinoids and terpenes) into vapor.
