  • What is a Cannabinoid?

    Cannabinoids are the natural chemical compounds that make up much of the cannabis plant. These react with receptors in your brain to create the effects that you feel when using cannabis. The combination of a strain’s cannabinoids creates what is known as “The Entourage Effect” and directly effect a user’s experience. THC, the substance primarily responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis, is one of the most well-known cannabinoids.

  • What is a Terpenoid?

    Terpenoids are the components of the cannabis plant’s essential oils. These create the aromas and flavors that you associate with your favorite strains. The flavors that are evident in most cannabis strains can range from sour to spicy, bitter, and sweet to savory. This palette further diversifies the multitude of options available to users. Additionally, terpenoids are responsible for some of the healing and therapeutic benefits of certain strains. For instance, certain popular terpenoids can combat symptoms such as inflammation, chronic pain, and insomnia. Let Vertica guide you toward relief.

CANNABIS FAQ

Medicinal cannabis is not inherently dangerous. However, much like the food we eat, one must be careful to source cannabis from a reputable, and preferably tested source. Cannabis that is sprayed with harmful pesticides is not safe to consume and should not be purchased or consumed in any manner. This point is even more critical when considering extracts. Extracts made from flower sprayed with harmful pesticides are especially dangerous because the pesticide residue is concentrated through the extraction process.

While not chemically addicting, cannabis, like anything can become psychologically addicting to certain people. The withdrawal syndrome for cannabis is mild and short-lived.

It should be noted, however, the growing of cannabis is highly addicting and should only be undertaken by those that are not afraid of hard work, long hours, irregular schedules, and complete and total dedication to the life cycle and needs of the plants.

CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found inside some cannabis strains.  CBD does not affect the consumer’s state of mind directly. THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid found inside some cannabis strains.  THC will affect one’s state of mind, the degree to which that happens is affected by many parameters based upon the user’s body chemistry and the strain’s chemical makeup. CBD can counteract the effects of THC and lessen its effectiveness.  Further, using the right combination of the two cannabinoids is much more medically effective will result in greater efficacy.

The Entourage Effect was first written about in a 1981 paper by J.W. Fairbairn and J.T. Pickens published in the British Journal of Pharmacology. The authors were able to show that “certain fractions of the crude drug exhibit an inhibiting and others a potentiating effect on THC.” Many other studies have shown similar results when comparing various whole-plant extracts to the commercially available drug Marinol, which is a synthetically-derived THC compound. In nearly all cases, whole-plant extracts outperformed THC. The wealth of evidence points to a synergistic effect of the many compounds found in this unique plant all working together to create increased efficacy vs. just concentrating on THC by itself. Each cannabinoid contributes to a different pharmacological effect, so it makes sense that mixing these chemical compounds at varying ratios will change a user’s experience and result.

Vertica uses an aquaponics system to grow cannabis. This system is a closed-loop process that starts with the fish. The fish produce waste, which in turn provides an organic food source for the plants, and the plants naturally filter the water back to the fish. This aquaponics process is the cleanest, greenest, most organic method of cannabis growth. As a result, the end user can rest assured that no harmful pesticides, fertilizers, or plant growth regulators were ever used at any stage. If we did, the fish would die, and the loop would be broken. Vertica protects its customers and the Earth by being greener from the start.
