What is the Difference Between THC and THCA?

Although THC and THCA have been compared before, THCA is actually considered to be the predecessor to THC. It’s easy to get the two confused which is why it’s important to recognize that THC and THCA produce very different effects. THC is the part of the cannabis plant that actually gets you high and THCA is an inactive compound found in the trichomes of the live cannabis plant.

Cannabis plant

Why THC Gets You High and THCA Does Not

THCA is a larger molecule that does not fit into certain cannabinoid receptors which are found in the brain, central nervous system, lungs, liver, and kidneys. In order to get the intoxicating effect, a cannabinoid must fit into a cannabinoid receptor. 

THC is the most researched cannabinoid out of the hundreds that are found in the cannabis plant. This is because it is one of the cannabinoids that contribute to the euphoric high that is unique to the cannabis plant. 

How Does THCA Become THC?

Heat and light remove the carboxylic acid group from THCA which alters the chemical structure making it the perfect shape to fit into those cannabinoid receptors mentioned earlier. Although THCA doesn’t have intoxicating effects some consider it to be a superfood when it’s in its freshest and most raw form. 

Much like avocados, kale, and other superfoods, raw cannabis (before heat and light are applied) has potential to ease arthritis, chronic pain, and other ailments. So, although THCA does not put you into the same euphoric state as THC it still has its benefits and should not be underestimated.

How to Use Puffco Pro

Puffco Pro

How to Use Puffco Pro

The Puffco Pro is a convenient way to take dabs while on the go or just a fun tool to use at home. It sets a new standard for consuming concentrates by simplifying the process while delivering an elevated experience. If you’re a beginner the Puffco Pro is a seamless way to enjoy using concentrates. If you consider yourself a connoisseur of concentrates the Puffco Pro is a great way to customize and control your smoking experience with ease.

Getting Started

  1. First thing you want to do is turn on your Puffco Pro by pressing down and holding the button. The Puffco Pro has four temperature settings to choose from: blue is the lowest, green is the second lowest, red is the second highest, and white the highest. Simply, press and hold the button until you reach your desired temperature.
  2. Next, you’re going to fill the triangular glass chamber with water until you reach just above the two small air holes.
  3. After filling the chamber with water your next step is to add your dab wax to the chamber before heating the Puffco Pro. You’ll only need a small amount of wax because a little goes a long way when it comes to concentrates.
  4. Allow the Puffco Pro 30 seconds to fully heat up and it will vibrate to indicate that it’s ready to go.
  5. After you’re finished using the Puffco Pro simply hold down on the button again to power it off.
  6. It’s recommended to clean your Puffco Pro after every use so the oil from the dab wax doesn’t clog up the chamber. To clean it just use a cotton swab to wipe out the residual oil.

Strains 1G Live Resin Carts Use Ceramic Coils

Strains 1G Live Resin Carts Use Ceramic Coils

Ceramic coils are coils that make use of ceramics to improve longevity and protect against issues like oxidation of the metal. There are two major design styles for a ceramic coil. The coil itself is still made from kanthal or an ordinary coil material since ceramics don’t conduct electricity. However, the core benefits can be obtained if a normal coil is simply encased in ceramic. Strains Dispensary uses ceramic coils in our 1G Live Resin Carts. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of using ceramic coils, and browse our inventory of 1G Live Resin Carts with Ceramic Coils today!

Benefits of Ceramic Coils

The benefits of ceramics are widely-touted: they are heat-resistant, so produce longer-lasting coils and they help you avoid the layer of oxidation that builds up on old coils. 

Here are some advantages associated with using quality ceramic coils for vaping that might nudge you towards buying a pack next time you visit a vape shop.

  • Improved flavor – with ceramic coils, vape users typically report improvements in flavor. There is nothing in a ceramic coil that will interfere with or react with your e-liquid’s flavor. Metals tend to leave an aftertaste that keen vapers can learn to detect. Nickel and titanium wires are especially troublesome in that respect. If you’re looking for clean, crisp flavors then ceramic coils for vaping are just what you need.
  • Longer lifespan – they are not as sensitive to high temperature changes as much as metal coils. Because of the fact that they expand and shrink far less, they tend to last a lot longer, and will not become brittle and break after a couple of weeks of use.
  • No dry hits – dry hits are a vaper’s nightmare. With a ceramic coil, the chances that you will get a dry hit are minimal because ceramic is so porous that it’s great when it comes to wicking. Of course, this means that you will see a marked improvement in the quality of your daily vapes, and will not have to suffer through burnt taste that’s associated with dry hits.
  • Reduced spit-back – with a ceramic coil, there is less of a chance of a spit-back – which is when juice shoots up the chimney and ends up in your mouth. Since a ceramic coil heats with its entire surface, it’s much better at vaporizing liquid before this unfortunate event happens. Also, ceramic coils prevent the juice from pooling, making it harder to inhale.
  • Better clouds – with them, you can use a high VG vape juice that creates much better clouds without the fear that it won’t wick properly. This is because ceramics is much better when it comes to heating and vaporizing larger amounts of highly viscous e-liquid than regular metal coils and cotton wicks.
  • Easier to clean – with purely ceramic coils, there’s nothing there for the dirt and guck to stick to. You simply use a cotton swab to wipe the coil down and that’s it. If your ceramic vape coil is wicked, all you need to do is to periodically change the wicking material and you’re good to go.

How To Use Cannabis Oils or Topicals

How To Use Cannabis Oils or Topicals

Cannabis oils, or topicals as they are often referred, are extracts from cannabis plants. Unprocessed, they contain the same 100 or so active ingredients as the plants, but the balance of compounds depends on the specific plants the oil comes from. The two main active substances in cannabis plants are cannabidiol, or CBD, and delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. The Strains Dispensary team is here to tell you how to use them, and be sure to browse our inventory of oils today!

Using Cannabis Oil

The most effective way to take cannabis oil or topicals is sublingually, where the oil is placed under the tongue with a dropper and absorbed by the mucous membranes that lead directly to the bloodstream. This method allows it to bypass the stomach, which raises the bioavailability (the number of cannabinoids that make it to your bloodstream when your body absorbs the medicine) and takes about 15 to 30 minutes to kick in.

You can also use cannabis oil like you would an edible or a capsule by adding it to food and drinks. While this method is effective, the bioavailability of anything you ingest is generally lower, meaning you won’t absorb the cannabinoids as thoroughly because they must pass through the stomach and the liver. Ingesting cannabis oil can take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes to kick in depending on things like what you’ve eaten and the speed of your metabolism.

Does Cannabis Help Lower Blood Pressure?

Shop Strains Exclusive Flowers

Does Cannabis Help Lower Blood Pressure?

High blood pressure, or hypertension, can lead to serious health concerns like a heart attack or stroke. But because hypertension doesn’t typically cause symptoms, many people who have it don’t even know. That’s why it’s so important to regularly check your blood pressure.

According to Healthline, there is evidence that CBD products could help lower blood pressure., 

A 2017 studyTrusted Source of nine male participants found that a single dose of CBD in healthy participants lowered blood pressure for those at rest and those who were under stress.

Another 2017 study in mice found that CBD significantly reduced stress-induced increases in blood pressure and heart rate.

Researchers acknowledge the beneficial effects of CBD for cardiovascular disorders, but note that additional studies are needed to fully understand how it might contribute.

Don’t rely on CBD alone to lower blood pressure! While there are some potential benefits that are worth exploring, it’s important to talk with a doctor and follow what they prescribe. This may include medication.
