Frequently Asked Questions

Consuming cannabis can result in differing effects based on a lengthy list of factors. Not only can something as simple as the contents of your last meal alter the effects, they can also vary based on a person’s gender, age, previous usage, overall metabolism, and a host of other situational and physiological factors. For this reason, it is always recommended for new consumers to ‘start low and go slow’.

Because cannabis is a natural product, the concentration of different cannabinoids and terpenes can vary from harvest to harvest, just as the sweetness of an apple from the same tree or tartness of a grape from the same vine can vary from year to year. For apples and grapes, this can affect the flavour of a cider or wine, with cannabis, these differences can change the strength or overall effect of the product.
