Cannabis contains cannabinoids like THC and CBD, offering diverse health benefits. THC provides relief from symptoms like pain and insomnia, while CBD is known for its non-psychoactive effects, aiding in anxiety and inflammation reduction. Together, they contribute to the entourage effect, enhancing each other's positive impacts on health.

Cannabis in many forms

At AlphaBud Cannabis Company, we're committed to promoting the purposeful and responsible use of cannabis. Our mission is to guide you through the myriad of cannabis forms, beyond the traditional classifications of sativa, indica, and hybrid, to discover the AlphaBud that truly resonates with your needs.

Beyond Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid: A New Understanding

Recent research challenges the traditional views of indica, sativa, and hybrid strains. Studies suggest that these classifications may not accurately predict the effects of cannabis on an individual, as the industry and consumers have commonly believed. Instead, the effects are more closely related to the specific cannabinoid and terpene profiles of each strain.

  • Cannabinoids and Terpenes: The Real Indicators of Effect

    Cannabinoids like THC and CBD, along with terpenes, play a significant role in the effects of cannabis. THC content alone is not a reliable indicator of potency or experience. The unique combination of cannabinoids and terpenes in a strain contributes to its therapeutic benefits and sensory experience, ranging from pain relief and relaxation to energy and focus.

  • Educate and Explore with AlphaBud Cannaseurs

    At AlphaBud, we encourage you to explore cannabis through the lens of its chemical composition.

How long do effects last?

The effects of cannabis vary significantly, generally lasting between 1 to 6 hours. This duration depends on the consumption method, individual physiology, and the specific cannabinoid profile, rather than solely on THC content.

  • Consumption Method: Inhalation (smoking/vaping) offers quicker but shorter-lasting effects, while edibles provide a delayed onset with longer duration.
  • Cannabinoid Profile: A balance of cannabinoids, including CBD and terpenes, plays a crucial role in the effects and their longevity.
  • Personal Factors: Metabolism and tolerance levels also greatly influence how long the effects persist.
