PRODUCT INFORMATION
What are some reasons I would need medical marijuana for?
Your body already makes marijuana-like chemicals that affect pain, inflammation, and many other processes. Marijuana can sometimes help those natural chemicals work better. There are at least two active chemicals in marijuana that researchers think have medicinal applications. Those are cannabidiol (CBD) — which seems to impact the brain without a high— and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — which has pain relieving (and other) properties. Medicinal marijuana can be used to treat the following confitions.

  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Spinal Cord Injury/Disease
  • Cancer
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Severe Arthritis
  • Epilepsy
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Eating Disorders
  • Arthritis
  • Auto Accident(s)
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Brain Injury
  • Chronic Pain
  • Chronic Nausea
  • Colitis
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Kidney Failure/Dialysis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Irritable Bowl Syndrome
  • Migraines
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

What is the difference between sativa and indica?
Sativa and Indica are the two major types of cannabis plants which can mix together to create hybrid strains. Each strain has its own range of effects on the body and mind resulting in a wide range of medicinal benefits.

The differences between indica and sativa remain a subject of much debate, especially among scientists who study the plant. However, most agree that Indica and Sativa plants are distinct in a number of ways.
Marijuana strains range from pure sativas to pure indicas and hybrid strains consisting of both indica and sativa (30% indica – 70% sativa, 50% – 50% combinations, 80% indica – 20% sativa). Because Sativa and Indica buds have very different medicinal benefits and effects, certain strains can be targeted to better treat specific illnesses.
Indica dominant strains are commonly used for pain relief and are often recommended for patients suffering from insomnia. They are suitable for night-time smoking.

Benefits of Indica:

  • Relieves body pain
  • Relaxes muscles
  • Relieves spasms, reduces seizures
  • Relieves headaches and migraines
  • Relieves anxiety or stress

Sativa dominant strains tend to have an uplifting, energetic and “cerebral” effect that is best suited for daytime smoking.

Benefits of Sativa:

  • Feelings of well-being and at-ease
  • Uplifting and cerebral thoughts
  • Stimulates and energizes
  • Increases focus and creativity
  • Fights depression

My shatter turned to wax / budder. Now what?
Please be advised that due to circumstances that are out of our control, such as summer heat, humidity and even time. There is always a risk that the shatter you ordered could turn to wax or budder by the time you receive it.
Unfortunately, shatter turning to wax budder is not uncommon when exposed to heat but it does not make your shatter an less safe or any less potent in any way whatsoever. In fact, the terpenes and aromatics will be more present if this happens and the flavor will actually be increased.
We do not offer any reimbursement or refunds if your shatter turns to budder or wax.

If you have any other questions, please email us at hello@bcmedijuana.ca. We will be happy to help! Happy shopping!
