Education

There’s a lot to know,
we’ll help you keep up!

Just the basics to get you started.

Taking responsibility for your wellness

We are committed to the care we put into our cannabis, so we want you to consume it that way – with a great amount of respect. That means being respectful in public places and on federal land by not consuming in these areas. If you live in a rental property or are visiting a resort, check with the management to make sure you’re obeying their medical marijuana policies.

Make sure you stay well hydrated and nourished during your cannabis consumption. While consuming marijuana it is important for you to not operate a vehicle or heavy machinery. On average, the effects of edibles can last up to 8 hours. When consuming edibles it’s wise to plan ahead, it can take up to 30 minutes to 2 hours to fully feel the effects. When smoking or vaping, you can expect the onset to be up to 10 minutes and for the full effect to last approximately 2 to 4 hours. If you haven’t used cannabis in a while or it’s your first time, start with a small amount to find your baseline. Keep a record of your usage so you can regulate your treatment. It’s important to remember that everyone is different so these are just suggestions, start with very small doses until you feel more comfortable.

Cannabis Basics

There are a variety of strains available, which is why it’s extremely important to know what you are getting. Every strain affects people differently, being educated is essential.

There are three varieties of cannabis:

  1. Indica – When patients are seeking pain relief and aid with sleeping, its medical effects are body-dominant, sedating, relaxing, muscle-relaxing, pain-relieving, nausea-reducing, appetite-increasing and dopamine-enhancing.
  2. Sativa – Focused on patients seeking relief from depression due to its uplifting nature, with medical effects that are mind-dominant, anti-anxiety, anti-depressant, activating, uplifting, alertness-enhancing, and energy-increasing.
  3. Hybrid – A combination of both indica and sativa strains.

How to take the medicine

There are many ways of ingesting cannabis:

  • Inhalation/smoking/vaporizing – Choose a strain of raw flower, or select extracts and concentrates, which will have higher levels of THC. Because it’s the cleanest, most environmentally-conscious choice, Panacea offers extraction products made using supercritical CO2 without any solvents.
