Cannabis Flower FAQ

Cannabis flower, often referred to simply as "weed", "buds" or "nuggets," is the flowering portion of the cannabis plant. It's the part of the plant that contains the highest concentrations of cannabinoids, which are the chemical compounds responsible for the plant's various effects on users.

The effects of cannabis flower can range from relaxation and euphoria to motivation and increased creativity, depending on the specific combination and concentration of cannabinoids present in the flower. The most well-known cannabinoids include THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol), but there are over a hundred others, as well as different terpenes that contribute to the overall experience.

Cannabis flower comes in a variety of strains, each with its own unique combination of cannabinoids, terpenes (aromatic compounds), and other compounds that influence its effects and flavors. Some strains are indica-dominant, known for their relaxing and sedating effects, while others are sativa-dominant, associated with more energizing and uplifting effects. Additionally, there are hybrid strains that blend characteristics of both indica and sativa.

Consumers can enjoy cannabis flower in several ways, including smoking, vaporizing, or incorporating it into edibles and extracts. It's important to note that the potency and effects of cannabis flower can vary widely depending on factors such as strain, growing conditions, and processing methods, so it's essential for consumers to choose products that align with their desired experience and preferences.

When measuring the strongest strains of flower, users will typically judge based on THC percentage. THC percentage can vary for each strain quite a bit, depending on the unique characteristics of each unique batch. However, Lume reliably produces several strains that consistently reach high-THC levels, typically at or above 30% THC.

Understanding the differences between indica, sativa, and hybrid cannabis flower is essential for consumers to select strains that align with their desired effects and preferences.

  1. Indica: Indica strains are known for their relaxing and sedating effects. They typically have higher levels of cannabinoids like THC, which contribute to their potent psychoactive effects. Indica strains are often preferred for evening or nighttime use, as they can promote deep relaxation, relieve stress, and alleviate insomnia. Indica plants tend to be shorter and bushier with broader leaves.

  2. Sativa: Sativa strains are associated with more energizing and uplifting effects. They typically have higher levels of cannabinoids like THC and terpenes that promote mental stimulation and creativity. Sativa strains are often chosen for daytime use or social activities, as they can enhance mood, focus, and sociability. Sativa plants tend to be taller and more slender with narrower leaves.

  3. Hybrid: Hybrid strains are crossbreeds of indica and sativa plants, combining the characteristics of both. Hybrid strains can offer a balance of effects, blending the relaxing properties of indica with the energizing effects of sativa. There are countless hybrid varieties, each with its own unique combination of cannabinoids, terpenes, and effects. Hybrid strains can be further classified as indica-dominant, sativa-dominant, or balanced hybrids, depending on their genetic makeup and predominant characteristics.

While indica, sativa, and hybrid classifications can provide general guidelines for predicting effects, individual experiences may vary based on factors such as cannabinoid and terpene profiles of each strain, personal tolerance, and consumption method.

Additionally, the distinctions between these categories have become somewhat blurred due to extensive crossbreeding and hybridization within the cannabis industry. As a result, we encourage you to consult with one of our budtenders if you aren't sure which strain you'll like.
