You're on Island Time
If it's terpene rich flowers, raw crafted pre rolls, a variety of newly coveted capsules and oils, or just some hand crafted made in Canada accessories you're after, we've got you covered - so all you have to do is relax, you're on island time.
How Much Cannabis Will I Be Able to Possess?
- You'll be allowed to possess up to 30 grams of dried legal cannabis or equivalent in public.
Where are the edibles?
- Oils and capsules ARE the edibles - you can take them as is or mix them in your food for a little flavour town. These are not the kind of oils you smoke, those are concentrates and extracts, which are not yet available for purchase from non-medical cannabis retailers.
What Do THC & CBD Mean?
- Delta-9- tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC for short) is the psychoactive compound that causes you to get "high". It can often be seen as tiny crystal-like trichromes on the plant. Cannabidiol (CBD) is responsible for many of the plants’ physical effects and has been used to treat anxiety, pain, inflammation, insomnia, nausea and even epilepsy in the medical world. Products are labelled with THC and CBD percentages, the higher that number is the more potent the product.
What is a Cannabinoid?
- Cannabinoids are a class of approximately 100 known chemical compounds that are unique to cannabis and are responsible for both the plants’ psychoactive and therapeutic effects. The most significant cannabinoids are delta-9- tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC for short) and cannabidiol (or CBD).
Then What is a Terpene?
- You may also hear the term terpene, which refers to a broad class of organic compounds that give cannabis strains their distinctive flavours and aromas. The Blueberry indica strain’s terpene profile, for example, is said to give it a sweet, berry-like taste. Terpenes are also believed to impact different strains’ effects.
