Marijuana Myths, Cannabis Facts

Marijuana Myths, Cannabis Facts

Over all, marijuana has gotten a bad name due to decades of prohibition and reefer madness-like thinking – in fact, the word “marijuana” was first used in U.S. policy during an effort to marginalize mexican immigrants in the early 1900s. As our society works to help this misunderstood plant find its appropriate place in our laws , I recommend using its real name that dispels the myths about this incredible plant and invokes the truth made available by thousands of scientists and researchers: cannabis. Cannabis has a lot to offer humanity, and you deserve to know the truth.

What is the difference between Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid?

What is the difference between Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid?

Many individuals familiar with cannabis have heard the terms Indica or Sativa. New patients at HPRC often see our cannabis jars labeled  with strain names, lab tested potency, and either indica, sativa, or hybrid labels. In regards to cultivation of the cannabis plants, Indicas are  predominately short and stout plants with broad big leafs. Sativa cannabis plants are usually taller and loosely branched with thinner leafs.
Hybrid plants are a result of breeding Indica and Sativa cannabis plants.  Prior to laboratory testing of cannabis many patients would predict the experiences a certain strain of cannabis would invoke based on the  way the plant grew. Sativa plants were traditionally believed to be uplifting, energetic, and euphoric. Indica plants were believed to be  relaxing, calming, and inducing a body high.  Today, due to legalization of medical and recreational cannabis across the country, more research is available about the unique chemical  compounds found in cannabis and the effects they induce. Over time research will help  standardize the experience patients receive from  cannabis based on the chemical make-up, rather than physical appearance alone. READ MORE!
