WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 85 active cannabinoids found in cannabis, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract and giving cannabis its sedative effect. CBD is believed to ease more symptoms of medical conditions than tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) related to autoimmune diseases, diabetes, epilepsy, rheumatoid arthritis, nausea, schizophrenia, and much more.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SATIVA, INDICA, AND HYBRID?
We tend to think of indica strains as being more sedating and relaxing, with full-body effects that “lock” you to the couch (meaning you’re content to sit back, unwind, and enjoy a Netflix marathon of your favorite show). On the other hand, we anticipate with sativas racier cerebral effects that leave us feeling energized and uplifted. Because of this typical contrast, consumers tend to prefer indicas for nighttime use while sativas are typically used from morning to afternoon.
Indica and sativa strains both have medical utility, but because of their perceived differences, they are often selected for different symptom management; for example, indicas are generally looked to for insomnia and pain, whereas sativas might be chosen for depression and fatigue. As varying combinations of the two, hybrids are often thought of as a “balance” of effects, offering a little bit of what both have to offer.

IS VAPORIZING SAFER THAN SMOKING?
On one hand, vaporization has blown up as a health trend for cannabis lovers. Most forms of cannabis consumption have some type downside: smoking cannabis still subjects the consumer to charred plant matter, and many edible companies still rely on sugary desserts as a vehicle for infused products. Vaporizing your cannabis is the only surefire way to avoid the most common cons to cannabis consumption since the process doesn’t create smoke and is 100% calorie and sugar-free.
On the other hand, much to the horror of the typical cannabis naysayer, dabbing has also risen dramatically in popularity. Yet, the biggest opposition to dabbing doesn’t have as much to do with health as the general appearance of the activity–when you begin to take a blow torch to a metal nail and pack the oil down, consuming marijuana suddenly looks almost entirely like consuming something else.
To get an expert opinion on these two subjects, the Leafly team had the chance to talk Seibo Shen of VapeXhale. Recently, Shen has been battling with one particular question: how do you give consumers the experience of dabbing without all the stigma?

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OIL, SHATTER, AND WAX?
For those of you who are new to the concentrates game, a cannabis extract is any oil that concentrates the plant’s chemical compounds like THC and CBD. This is achieved through a variety of extraction processes and solvents, the most common being butane. Advancements in extraction technology have enabled the use of other solvents like carbon dioxide and pure hydrocarbons in a process that utilizes pressure in a safe closed-loop system. The end product is a highly potent oil of varying consistencies most popularly used for vaporization and dabbing.
