Frequently Ask Questions
What is cannabis?
Cannabis refers to the cannabis plant that comes in many varieties such as Sativa and Indica. When the flowers of this plant are harvested and dried it’s known as marijuana, pot, weed, and various other names. Known to come from Asia, Cannabis is now grown worldwide becoming heavily popular in North America over the past few centuries.
Will topicals get me high?
No topicals won’t get you high like edibles, smoking, vaping or oils will. In order to get the high feeling from cannabis, it must penetrate the bloodstream and into the brain. Our skin acts as a protective barrier and cannabis can’t be absorbed through it. The same can be said about alcohol, if you pour vodka or a beer on your arm, you wouldn't get drunk or fail a field sobriety test. Cannabis topicals work on the same principle. The cannabinoids collect in our fat cells but get absorbed before they could permeate through our skin into the bloodstream. Because of this you also wouldn’t fail a drug test if you are using topicals.
What is CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol is the main non-psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that is attributed to pain relief or relaxation. CBD will not make you feel high as it reacts with different receptors in the endocannabinoid system than THC which does get you high. Much research is still needed to be done in order to assess the effects of CBD and its reaction to other medications, be cautious and consult your doctor if you’re ever unsure.

What is CBG?
CBG stands for cannabigerol, which is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that interact with the endocannabinoid system in the human body and have various effects. CBG is formed through the conversion of cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), an acidic precursor, which is then broken down into other cannabinoids like THC, CBD, and others. Because of this, CBG is often referred to as the "mother of all cannabinoids". Some of the potential benefits include anti-inflammatory properties, pain relief, neuroprotective effects, potential anti-cancer properties, and antimicrobial activity.
What are cannabis extracts?
Cannabis extracts are concentrated forms of active compounds found in the cannabis plant. These extracts contain high levels of cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, which are responsible for the plant's psychoactive and therapeutic effects.
