Glossary of Cannabis Terms
Cannabis contains more than 140 cannabinoids which are chemicals that affect our brains, mental state and physical movement. Cannabis comes in various cured and consumable forms such; dried flowers or “buds” (Marijuana), pressed resin from the cannabis flowers or leaves (Hash), as well as concentrated cannabis extracts (Shatter, Budder, Live Resin, etc).
Butane Hash Oil, abbreviated as BHO, is a cannabis concentrate created by extracting THC and terpenes from cannabis flowers or trim by using a butane, pressure and heat. This results in a sticky and thick oil that contains very high THC levels. Depending on the heat, humidity and the way the BHO has been whipped it can turn into one of seven different forms of consistency: budder, crumble, oil, sap, shatter, snap and pull, or wax.
A small to large sized pipe that contains a water chamber which cools the smoke as it passes through. Most bongs consist of four parts: a bowl, chamber, mouthpiece and stem. They are fabricated in a variety of materials such as ceramic, metal, plastic, and wood. However, glass is considered by far to be the best material for a bong.
Bongs are the preferred method of smoking cannabis for many because of its ability to drive the smoke deeper into the user’s lungs faster, thus getting the user medicated while using less cannabis.
An emptied cigar filled with cannabis. Blunts are considered to be the heaviest method of “joint” smoking due to the interaction of the tobacco leaf and cannabis.
A slang term for cannabis.
Every chemical substance, regardless of its origin or structure, that joins the cannabinoid receptors of the body and brain and that have similar effects to those produced by the cannabis plant.
CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is one of at least 85 cannabinoids found in cannabis and the second only to THC when it comes to average volume. CBD has gained appeal for its use as a medical treatment as research has shown it effectively treats pain, inflammation, and anxiety without the psychoactive effects (the stoned feeling) associated with THC.
Cannabis concentrates are the most potent forms of cannabis available on the market. They are created by extracting THC and terpenes from cannabis flowers or trim by using a solvent, pressure and heat. The resulting product contains very high THC levels and can vary in consistency from thick sticky oils (BHO) to moldable goo (budder/wax) to more resinous bits (shatter).
Edible goods that have been infused with either CBD or THC. The most common forms of edibles are baked goods such as brownies, cookies, and chocolates but other various forms such as infused beverages and grain products do exist. Once consumed the active components take a little longer to activate because they need to be absorbed throughout your digestive system.
Hemp plants are male cannabis plants that do not generate any THC during cultivation. Hemp is used in manufacturing beauty products, clothing, rope, paper, and many other products. Hemp plants have no value in the cannabis industry as they are the male plants.
Refers to a cannabis plant that has been crossed with one or more separate strains of cannabis. Most of the cannabis in the market today is some sort of hybrid strain.
Refers to a cannabis plant that belongs to the indica species. When compared to sativa, indica cannabis plants are shorter, bushier and has a smaller flower make up. Indica cannabis plants produce more relaxing physical effects and can have a sedative quality.
Kush strains are indica dominant strains that have a unique aroma resulting in a large fan base worldwide. Specific kush breeds and plants are unique, but their aroma is generally described as “earthy” or “piney” combined with a citrus or sweet smell.
A pre-roll is a slang term that refers to a fully rolled marijuana joint available for purchase.
Refers to a cannabis plant that belongs to the sativa species. When compared to indica, sativa cannabis plants are taller, lighter in colour and take longer to flower. Sativa cannabis plants produce more cerebral effects as opposed to physical and sedative ones.
Shatter is a type of cannabis concentrate that is encompassed under BHO or Butane Hash Oil.
A strain is a specific variety of a plant species. Strains are developed to produce distinct desired traits in the plant and are usually named by their breeders (or by creative consumers). Strain names often reflect the plant’s appearance, its promised buzz, or its place of origin. Although the medical marijuana industry strives for consistency, strains can easily be mistakenly or purposely misidentified.
THC is an abbreviation for tetrahydrocannabinol. It is the most well-known and most abundantly available cannabinoid in marijuana plants. THC is also the component in marijuana that is responsible for the psychoactive effects, or the “high.” Also known as Delta-9-tetracannabinol, it was first isolated in 1964 and is thought to serve as a natural defence for the plant against pests. Research has shown THC to be an effective medical treatment for a range of conditions. There is no lethal dose of the compound in its natural form.
A tincture is a liquid cannabis extract usually made with alcohol or glycerol that is often dosed with a dropper. Tinctures can be flavoured and are usually placed under the tongue, where they are absorbed quickly. Effects can be felt within minutes. Tinctures can also be mixed into a drink, but in these cases, effects will take longer because the tinctures will be absorbed by the digestive system.
A topical is a type of cannabis product where the active properties of the flowers have been extracted and added to a product such as a lotion or a cream that’s applied to the skin. The medicinal properties are absorbed through the skin and can be used to treat muscle aches, long term soreness, or ailments like dry skin.
Trichomes are the resin production glands of the cannabis plant. In Greek the word means “growth of hair,” and while these sticky little protrusions can make plants appear a little hairy, they are not hairs, nor are they “crystals,” which is how they are often described. THC, CBD and other cannabinoids are all produced in these glands.
A vaporizer is a device used to consume marijuana. It heats either flowers or marijuana-infused oils to a temperature that produces a cannabinoid-laced vapour to inhale. Vaporizing is healthier than smoking since there is no smoke to ingest, but this method still produces near-instant effects. With new, more compact models on the market, vaporizing is growing in popularity.

Health Benefits of Cannabis
They’re at least two chemicals found in cannabis that have medicinal applications; CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Limitations on marijuana research means much remains unknown about cannabis’ medical applications. On top of CBD and THC, there are another roughly 400 chemical compounds which could have medical uses but without further research, we do not know how to make use of those compounds yet.
Cannabis is a great treatment for chronic pain, there is concrete scientific evidence that certain cannabis strains and their cannabinoids can relieve patients suffering from chronic pain. Chronic pain is also by far the most common reason people request medicinal marijuana.
The same report mentions that cannabis can help those who suffer muscle spasms related to multiple sclerosis. Other types of muscle spasms respond to cannabis as well, people use cannabis to treat diaphragm spasms that are untreatable by any other medications.
Evidence suggests that marijuana does not harm a person’s lungs, in fact, it might even improve their lung capacity. Researchers tested the lungs of roughly 5,100 young adults over a time span of 20 years. Cannabis smokers showed an increase in lung capacity while tobacco smokers lost lung function.
Another more recent survey polled individuals who consumed cannabis daily for up to 20 years and found no evidence that marijuana consumption harmed their lungs in any way.
Researchers from the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco reported in 2007 that cannabidiol (CBD) stops cancer from spreading in cell cultures. Studies on brain tumours in mice and cell cultures show that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) can slow or shrink tumours at the right dose. Now obviously these findings in cell cultures and mice don’t necessarily mean that the effect will translate onto people but we believe that far more investigation is needed.
Marijuana has been proven to reduce anxiety in low doses. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago found that low doses of THC reduce stress, while high doses of THC have the opposite effect.
Marijuana eases painful symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis. Researchers from the Canadian Medical Association Journal studied 30 patients who had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis who experienced painful muscle contractions. The patients reported that they were in less pain after consuming cannabis. Upon further investigation, it was found that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) would bind to receptors in the patient’s nerves and muscles to relieve the pain they experienced.
Cannabis is proven to ease pain, reduce inflammation, and promote sleep, which can relieve discomfort and pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers gave their patients Sativex, a cannabinoid-based pain-relieving medicine. After a two-week period, patients who were on Sativex had a significant reduction in pain and improved sleep quality compared to patients who were not on Sativex.
Marijuana has been proven to ease tremors for people suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Researchers from Israel have found that smoking marijuana significantly reduces pain and tremors and improves sleep for Parkinson’s disease patients. Most impressive was the improved fine motor skills amongst patients.
Perhaps the most well-known use of medicinal marijuana is for patients who are going through chemotherapy. Cancer patients being treated with chemotherapy suffer adverse side effects from the treatment that includes painful nausea, vomiting, and a loss of appetite. Cannabis helps reduce these side effects by alleviating pain, decreasing nausea, and stimulating the appetite. There are multiple cannabinoid drugs that use tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) for the same purpose.
