What is Price Match?

It’s as easy as that!

How much cannabis can I buy at one time?

You can buy or possess up to 30 grams of dried cannabis or equivalent at one time. 

One (1) gram of dried cannabis is equivalent to:

  • 5 g of fresh cannabis
  • 15 g of edible product
  • 70 g of liquid product
  • 0.25 g of concentrates (solid or liquid)
  • 1 cannabis plant seed

What are cannabinoids?

Molecular yet mighty, cannabinoids are chemical compounds that stimulate the CB1 receptor in the brain, resulting in a spectrum of benefits and effects. Here, we’ll focus on the most common: THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol).

THC-dominant

Choosing a strain that’s THC-dominant will give you the intoxicating “high” that’s commonly paraded in pop culture. The psychoactive effect is balanced and damped by the level of CBD in the strain.

  • Alters consciousness and perspectives
  • Produces feelings of euphoria

CBD-dominant

Choosing a strain that’s CBD-dominant will give you a grounded “body” experience. This cannabinoid is non-psychoactive, making it desirable to those with THC sensitivities.

  • Little to no psychoactive effects

THC/CBD balanced

Choosing a strain with a balance of THC and CBD will harmonize the overall effects of each cannabinoid. CBD cushions the CB1 adaptor in the brain, softening the psychoactive effects of THC.

What are terpenes?

Follow your nose. It’s quite wise advice when it comes to selecting cannabis. Research shows that terpenes, the aromatic compounds in cannabis (think essential oils), play a large role in the energizing or relaxing effects.

Some of the more common terpenes – there are over 400!

  • Alpha-Pinene
  • Myrcene
  • Limonene
  • Beta-Caryophyllene
  • Linalool
  • Humulene
  • Ocimene
  • Terpinolene

How do you consume legal cannabis products?

After purchasing legal cannabis products, you can consume them by:

  • Smoking: Joints, pipes and bongs
  • Vapourizing: Breathing in dried or concentrated cannabis through a vaping device
  • Drinking or eating: Homemade edibles made from cannabis oil or dried cannabis
  • Ingesting: Capsules containing cannabis oil

What are the differences between cannabis species?

Genus: Cannabis

Species: C. indica, C. sativa, C. ruderalis

Contrary to popular belief, the species of cannabis you consume doesn’t indicate the varying effects you can expect to experience.

That’s right, indica doesn’t chill you out, nor does sativa energize you. Regardless of species, it’s a strain’s unique mix of cannabinoids and terpenes that gets you in the groove. In fact, most modern-day strains of cannabis are crossbreeds (a mix of species), with very few linking back to their pure lineage.

Taxonomy terms such as indica or sativa are best used to categorize the varying climates, appearances, origins and growth patterns of each variety. The combination of cannabinoids and terpenes present, regardless of species, is the best predictor of consumption effects.

What cannabis products are available for purchase?

The product formats currently available for purchase include: dried flower, milled flower, pre-rolled joints, vape cartridges and disposable vapes, edibles, beverages, concentrates, oils, sprays and capsules.
