Additional FAQs

Can I drive with cannabis in my car?

Yes, as long as it is in a sealed container and out of reach. Driving under the influence of marijuana is against the law, dangerous and violators may be subjected to a DUI penalties.

Can I consume cannabis products in public?

No. State law requires all cannabis products to be consumed in private homes only.

What is flower?

Flower refers to cannabinoid-rich, unfertilized buds that are found on female marijuana plants. These flowers are trimmed throughout the stage of the plant and flavor, effects and potency differ by strains. Flowers can be consumed in a variety of ways including rolled into joints, smoked through bowls or bongs and through vaporizers.

What are concentrates?

Concentrates are potent cannabis products that are made by extracting cannabinoids through the refining of flower. The term is used to refer to products such as kief, hash, wax, oils and shatter. These products are more potent then flower. These are often sold in cartridges to be vaporized, in oil tincture and infused in honey. We always recommend discussing your cannabis history and goals with our product specialists before purchasing and using Silver Therapeutics products.

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

Sativa strains are described as being more energetic and uplifting mental effects. These strains can be helpful in stimulating creativity and helping treat depression. They are recommended for activities such as hiking, playing music and cleaning the house.

Indica strains produce a much more relaxed and mellow sensation. These strains are ideal for those with chronic pain as they can lead to a body high. They are also recommended for those battling with insomnia, stress and similar conditions. These strains are perfect for unwinding after a tough week, relaxing on the beach and playing with puppies.

Hybrids refer to the genetic breeding of different cannabis strains to produce new combinations.

What is the difference between THC and CBD?

THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the prevalent cannabinoid found in the marijuana plant. It is responsible for the psychoactive effects (feeling high) and is used medicinally in a number of ways from treating chronic pain, soothing mental illness and increasing appetite.

CBD (cannabidiol) is another one of the over 60 cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce psychoactive effects and is generally used by those who are seeking the medical benefits from marijuana plant without getting high. CBD is often used to help treat seizures, nausea, inflammation, anxiety and chronic pain.

What are edibles?

Edibles are products that serve as a vehicle to consumer cannabis in contrast to smoking or vaping flower or concentrates. Commonly found edibles are brownies, chocolate bars, cookies, candies, gummies and more. The result of consuming edibles is generally an elongated and sometimes intense high. And if you’re thinking to yourself, “can you get too high on weed?“, well the short answer is yes. We recommend starting slow with small dosage and waiting to feel the intended effects before consuming more as they can take up to 2 hours to set in. As always, please consult our product specialist when buying edibles.
