Different Kinds of Cannabis

Cannabis contains hundreds of chemical substances. These chemical substances are the parts of cannabis that affect the way we feel and think. Two of the most studied chemicals in cannabis are THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol).

The more THC, the stronger the product. The current understanding is that CBD acts to lessen the effects of THC. Learn more about choosing safer cannabis products here.

Access to medical cannabis and the federal regulations surrounding this has not changed with cannabis legalization; visit Health Canada Cannabis for Medical Purposes for more information.
