HOW DOES CANNABIS AFFECT THE BODY?
Cannabis contains over 113 active chemical compounds, called
cannabinoids. These influence brain functions such as
appetite, memory, pain sensitivity and mood.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are the
primary agents in cannabis, and exert the greatest influence
on the way the plant affects a user. While THC is known for
its psychoactive effects, CBD is not mood altering. Because of
its ability to act as a pain reliever, anti-inflammatory and
even reduce the number of seizures a patient has, CBD is
largely used for its medicinal benefits.
HOW DO STRAINS DIFFER?
The two most widely-consumed species of cannabis are Cannabis
sativa and Cannabis indica. Sativa strains are known for
generating an active, energetic and cerebral experience, while
Indica strains tend to produce more of a mellow & relaxing
response. Hybrids, comprised of both sativa and indica
strains, combine the effects of both.
Just as different cannabis strains have different effects on
the user experience, so too do different methods of intake.
Organa Labs products are designed to utilize the wide range of
benefits that come from different cannabis delivery
Inhalation consists of vaporizing Organa Labs cannabis
oil using an O.penVAPE pen or go.pen plus. In recent years,
vaporizing has emerged as a popular alternative to smoking
thanks to several user-friendly attributes. Vaporizing lacks
the harsh, irritating effects that smoking can have on the
lungs and throat. Additionally, vaporizing uses cannabis oil
that’s ultra-purified and highly concentrated, eliminating the
need to inhale unwanted plant material.
Vaporizing is virtually odorless and produces relatively
little smoke, making it a discreet delivery system that can be
used in a variety of settings. Ingestion involves the eating
or drinking of cannabis-infused products like Magic Buzz
elixirs or Organa Labs Applicator oil. Because ingested
cannabis products pass through the stomach before reaching
receptors in the brain, this process involves a slower onset —
though it generally produces the longest-lasting
Sublingual intake occurs when products are placed
directly under the tongue and absorbed through mucus
membranes. Though sublingual intake delivers a faster onset of
effects than ingestion, both methods can be performed
discreetly and with ease, making them ideal for medical
patients or everyday users. Topical delivery involves the
application of raw cannabis oil directly onto the skin.
Topical products offer local relief without inducing the
mind-altering high, making them ideal for treating rashes,
sores, and other skin-level discomforts.
Cannabis affects everyone differently. Because of the wide
variety of factors that influence the cannabis user
experience— including method of intake, strain of cannabis,
tolerance and personal history — there is no singular
recommendation on appropriate dosage. We encourage all users
to begin with moderation, especially when consuming through
ingestion. For more information on how to make smart choices
