Using Cannabis

Cannabis sativa L. has been growing on the planet for over a hundred thousand years, with evolutionary roots in the Cannabaceae family dating back millions of years. The plant has enjoyed multiple medicinal, recreational and religious implementations with respect to one of its main active ingredients: THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol. Thanks to modern day analysis, however, we are now able to identify additional components that can provide more efficient medicinal treatment (CBD) or provide a more flavourful recreational experience (Limonene).

The unpollinated flowers of the plant are used to aid in relaxation, as a social drug, to help people sleep, and are often even smoked just for their flavour, as each variety has its own unique taste and scent, as well as effect. 

Medical

We at the College believe that the legalisation of medical Cannabis should be a huge priority within the governments of the world. Unfortunately, we are not doctors and are only able to pass along relevant information so that medical patients can then ask their primary care physicians for advice. Please consult a trained professional before you begin any new medical regimen, and find out as much as you can before using Cannabis as medicine.

Medicinal Cannabis

Medicinal use of Cannabis is very different to recreational and thorough research into the subject is ongoing. The consumer must not achieve an intoxicated state or what is classified as a “medical overdose” is reached. 

Recreational

Recreational cannabis is the most widely used illicit drug in the world. The plant is used to aid in relaxation, as a social drug, to help people sleep, and is often even smoked for its flavour as each variety has its own unique taste, scent and effect.

How long does cannabis stay in the body?

How long cannabis stays in the body is affected by many factors, such as frequency of use, type, test method, personal rate of metabolism and other issues.

Industrial

The use of Cannabis as an industrial crop by humans is as old as the practice of agriculture itself, dating back almost 10 000 years. Originally used for the fibres of the stalk in order to make fabrics for clothing or nets for hunting & fishing, the plant now has a diverse range of applications from construction and cosmetics to modern day uses such as 3D printing.

Industrial Hemp

The use of Cannabis as an industrial crop by humans is as old as the practice of agriculture itself, dating back almost 10,000 years. Originally it was culitivated for the fibres of the stalk in order to make fabrics for clothing or nets for hunting and fishing.

Hemp Stalks

The hemp stalk is possibly the most well-known component of the plant, as its primary- and secondary fibres are commonly used in textile production, plus construction materials, paper and plastics.

Hemp Seeds & Oils

Hemp seeds are one of the most complete sources of Omega oils available as well as a prolific source of food grain proteins. Pasta, jam, bread and many other foods may be produced with hemp seeds as a base.

Hemp Flowers & Roots

Most people are by now aware that hemp stalks are used as an industrial textile crop; however, it is actually possible to use the whole plant for a range of products.
