Dried Flower

The Cannabis Act describes dried cannabis as any part of a cannabis plant that has been added to a drying process, other than the seeds. Dried flower is the part of the female cannabis plant that is dried, smoked, vaped or used to make lotions, tinctures, etc. 

Dried flower is available at any and every legal cannabis store in the authorized provinces of Canada.

When it comes to understanding this category, these are the factors that you need to consider:

The Format  

Dried flower can be found at your local legal dispensary in the following formats:

  • Dried Whole Flower. Whole flower is basically cannabis buds. They’re the resulting product of cutting down cannabis plants at harvest, properly drying them and then curing them.
  • Milled Flower. Dried flower that has been ground up for convenience and can easily be sprinkled into your bong, rolling paper, etc.
  • Pre-rolls. Cannabis joints that have been pre-rolled for you. You can also find infused pre-rolls at your local legal cannabis shop which are cannabis joints infused with some type of cannabis extract like hash, kief, moon rocks, etc.

The Size 

Dried flower can be found in many different sizes starting from 1 gram all the way up to 28 grams.

The other common sizes we see are 3.5 grams (also known as half a quarter as it is half a quarter of an ounce/28 grams), 7 grams (also known as a quarter) and 14 grams (also known as half an ounce).

The Plant Type 

Dried flower can be found in a variety of plant types, which include Sativa or Indica dominant, a hybrid of Indica and Sativa, the cannabinoid Cannabidiol (CBD) dominant, or CBD and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) balanced.

You can also find some dried flower products that include other cannabinoids like Cannabigerol (CBG) or Cannabinol (CBN). The plant type will determine the specific type of effects you can expect after consuming the product.

The Strain 

Cannabis plants come in an endless variety of strains. These strains are divided into three main categories that determine their effects and structure and are known as Sativa, Indica, and hybrids. 

A cannabis plant’s strain is defined by its genetic interpretation and its terpene profile. Usually, the product’s name or description will give you some idea of the strain. Visit Leafly’s website to learn more about the many different strains, or you can learn more about Sativa dominant strains here.

For example, a popular Sativa-dominant strain known as Blue Dream is a cross between the strains Blueberry and Haze. This information can give you insight into what to expect in terms of the plant’s terpene profile and effects.

The Potency

Dried flower typically contains anywhere between 1% to 30% THC and/or CBD. Before buying dried flower, remember to check the potency levels of the product found on the label of the package.

This will help you understand the strength of the effects that you will experience and the different cannabinoids or contents of the plant that will influence these effects. This particular factor applies to all the legal cannabis product categories.

The Consumption Method 

You can consume dried flower by smoking it in a joint, a bong, a vaporizer or a pipe. You can also cook with cannabis as an alternative to smoking, however, edibles are not recommended for novice or first-time consumers.

Check out our online menu to browse the different dried flower products we have available at Highland Cannabis dispensary in Kitchener, Ontario.

Edibles

Cannabis edibles are products that contain cannabinoids, like Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or Cannabidiol (CBD),  chemical compounds found in cannabis like THC or CBD, which you can eat or drink. 

Edibles are known to have more potent effects and longer-lasting high because of which it carries the risk of overconsumption, so it is recommended to start low and go slow. If you are a first-time consumer, consider talking to a budtender at the legal cannabis store for more advice.

When it comes to understanding this category, these are the factors that you need to consider:

Type of Edible 

Cannabis edibles come in a variety of shapes and forms and we continue to see new unique releases every few weeks. The different varieties of cannabis edibles include:

  • Hard edibles or hard candy
  • Baked goods like cookies, brownies, cakes, pretzel bites, etc.
  • Pantry edibles include an infused hot sauce, infused sugar, infused honey and infused coffee
  • Beverages like tea, sodas, energy drinks, etc.

  • You can also find other products like dissolvable powder, which can be mixed into a beverage and sublingual strips which are infused strips that can be placed under the tongue for quick absorption.

Size and Dosage 

Depending on the type of edible you choose, you can find a variety of sizes and dosages. Keep in mind that the current legal limit of THC per package of an edible is 10 mg.

You can find the 10 mg divided between multiple soft chews or other types of edibles or the full 10 mg in a single edible. However, it is recommended to start with a smaller dose of 2 to 2.5 mg and wait at least 2 hours to decide whether you can consume more.

Plant Type 

You can find edibles that only contain THC, THC and CBD and only CBD too. Lately, we have been seeing the emergence of products infused with other cannabinoids like CBN.

Check out our online menu to browse the different edibles we have available at Highland Cannabis dispensary in Kitchener, Ontario.

Concentrates 

As seen in our Guide To Cannabis Concentrates in Kitchener, cannabis concentrates are a potent concentrated product that is rich in only the THC/CBD cannabinoids and terpenes of the plant. They are made by separating the trichome-rich bits of the plant from the actual plant.

Cannabis extracts are types of cannabis concentrates that are made using chemical solvents, like butane, to extract the desired cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant. Some examples of extracts include cannabis wax extracts, distillates, or shatter.

Concentrates that are derived without the use of solvents, retain the dignity of the cannabis plant and its entire natural profile like its flavonoids, proteins, cannabinoids and such, are known as full-spectrum concentrates.

When it comes to understanding this category, these are the factors that you need to consider:

Types of Concentrate 

There are a variety of concentrates that are produced using different processes. These include:

  • Wax and shatter. Two forms of butane hash oil, or BHO, which refers to cannabis concentrates made using butane as a solvent.
  • Hash. Kief that’s been formed into a brick using heat and pressure.
  • Moon rocks. Nugs of cannabis flower dipped in extracts and rolled in kief.
  • Kief. Also known as sift, dry sift or dry sieve, is a type of cannabis concentrate that is produced by mechanically separating the trichomes from the dried cannabis flower.
  • Infused oils. A concentrated substance derived from the dried flower that is mixed with a neutral oil, such as MCT or sunflower oil.
  • Capsules. Also known as soft gels, are a smoke-free alternative concentrate that is produced in the form of a capsule with THC and/or CBD cannabinoids and is easy to swallow.
  • Resin or live resin. Produced with flash-frozen freshly harvested cannabis plants and a hydrocarbon solvent such as butane or propane. It’s known for its high concentration of terpenes and cannabinoids.
  • Rosin. A type of cannabis concentrate that is produced using just heat and pressure. This would be an example of a full spectrum concentrate.
  • Distillates and Isolates. This is the purest form of a concentrate that can be achieved from the cannabis plant. It involves a complex extraction process after which cannabinoids are fully separated.

    Distillates are the fluid you see in your vaporizer cartridges and can now also be found infused in some edibles. 

Plant Type 

Sativa or Indica dominant, THC and/or CBD balanced.

The Strain 

As mentioned above in this blog, strains are divided into three main categories that determine their effects and structure and are known as Sativa, Indica, and hybrids.

Concentrates are processed using plants of different strains. Every individual strain falls within one of the above-mentioned 3 categories and has a unique terpene flavour profile that together determines its effects, aroma, flavour, etc.

The Potency 

Concentrates potency can be up to 90% THC. They’re usually meant to be inhaled and as per the law can contain no more than 1,000 mg of THC per package. Before buying dried flower, remember to check the potency levels of the product found on the label of the package.

This will help you understand the strength of the effects that you will experience and the different cannabinoids or contents of the plant that will influence these effects. This particular factor applies to all the legal cannabis product categories.

The Consumption Method

Wondering how to consume cannabis concentrates? Wax and shatter can be consumed by mixing them into a joint or pre-roll with your dried flower, in an extract vaporizer, in your bong with dried flower or they can also be dabbed.

Kief, moon rocks or hash can also be sprinkled into your dried flower mix for your joint, bong or bowl to enhance the effects. Distillates in cartridges can be paired with a compatible vaporizer device, for example, 510 cartridges are universally compatible with 510 vaporizer pens or devices. 

Note: Dabbing shatter or other concentrates involves special accessories and are not recommended for novice consumers. If you would like to try dabbing, start low and go slow as concentrates carry potent doses and the risk of overconsumption.

A number of our budtenders are concentrate connoisseurs and can help you select the best concentrate product for you. We also have a variety of accessories for concentrate consumption, from more traditional dab rigs and bangers that can be used with your bong, to electronic concentrate ovens and vaporizers. We encourage you to stop by and visit to learn more in person!

Topicals

Cannabis topicals are lotions, balms, creams, oils, baths and other skin products that are infused with cannabinoids like THC or CBD and are for external use only. Topicals may provide localized relief from pain and inflammation without the high.

Topicals are designed to transport cannabinoids through your skin and not to reach your bloodstream which is why there may not be intoxicating effects. However, transdermal patches are designed to transport cannabinoids to your bloodstream.

When it comes to understanding this category, these are the factors that you need to consider:

Type of Topical and Method of Application 

The type of topical you choose will tell you the application method it requires. Also, keep in mind that different topicals come with their benefits depending upon the list of ingredients and how they’re made. 

The different types of topicals available in the Canadian legal cannabis market include:

  • Bath products. Bath bombs, soaps, etc.
  • Creams and lotions, ointments, scalp oil, gels, face creams, etc.
  • Intimacy oils.
  • Lip and face care: lip balms, toothpaste, facial cleanser, masks, etc.

Potency and Source 

Topicals are capped at 1000 mg of THC per package while there is no upper limit for the CBD or any other cannabinoid content.

Unfortunately, there isn’t enough scientific data available on the recommended dosage or potency for specific needs. Experts advise that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution to whether a THC and/or CBD balanced product would be more effective or how much to apply.

Instead, when it comes to topicals, it is recommended to look at the ingredients, the source of the cannabinoids and to read the information that comes with the product.

What Are Cannabinoids and Terpenes?

Cannabinoids are the chemical substances found in the cannabis plant, like THC or CBD, that bind with the cannabinoid receptors in our body and result in the different effects caused by consuming cannabis.

Terpenes are the compounds secreted by cannabis plants that are responsible for giving it its unique scent and taste. They can come in a range or combination of scents like earthy, woodsy, herbal, spicy, gasy, sour and/or sweet. They’re also responsible for many other functions like therapeutic or mood-altering effects.

What Are the Different Types of Cannabis Concentrates in Kitchener?

You can choose from a wide range of weed concentrates in Kitchener, and the list is growing, depending on your preferred method of consumption and THC levels. 

They come in a multitude of forms and textures depending on what process is used to separate the desired elements of the plant, like cannabinoids and terpenes, from the plant.

Cannabis extracts are a type of cannabis concentrate that are made using chemical solvents, like butane, to extract the desired cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant. Some examples of extracts include cannabis wax extracts, the fluid in vaporizer cartridges, or shatter.

What You Need to Know about Cannabis Delivery in Kitchener

If you’re looking for answers to your questions about weed delivery in Kitchener, you’ve come to the right place.

It’s been 3 years since legalization and out of all the varieties of cannabis products, experiences and services that we have observed, cannabis delivery is one we have all looked forward to.

Although most other delivery services have similar features, there are few rules and regulations around legal weed delivery that make its process different.

To help you get familiar with the ins and outs of weed delivery in Kitchener, we’ve compiled a brief Q&A along with the details of our delivery services at Highland Cannabis.

How Does Cannabis Delivery Work?

Cannabis retailers in Ontario were given the thumbs up on providing curbside pick-up and delivery services back in April 2020 by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).

The process of placing an order for delivery or curbside pick up with an authorized cannabis retailer or from the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) is more or less the same across the province; visit their website, browse their menu, add items to the cart, check out, fill in your personal and payment details and click on place order.

Some authorized cannabis retailers, including the OCS, may even offer the option for same-day delivery for a small fee.

Before you can collect your order, whether curbside pickup or a delivery outside your residence, it is mandatory by law for you to present a valid government photo id and the credit/debit card that was used to pay for the order to the deliverer(provided you prepaid for curbside pickup).

Which Cannabis Products Can Be Ordered for Delivery?


You can order anything from an authorized cannabis retailer’s online menu like cannabis edibles, cannabis concentrates, cannabis extracts, pre-rolls, dried flower, cannabis beverages, vaporizers etc., within the legal limit of 30 grams (or the equivalent of extract, edible or topical) per transaction, which is also the legal public possession limit.

All the online legal dispensary menus, whether on Dutchie or similar e-commerce platforms, are programmed to prevent you from adding more than the legal limit of 30 grams to your cart.

Let’s look at how you can find a legal cannabis deliverer in Kitchener.

Choosing a Legal Weed Deliverer in Kitchener

With so many authorized cannabis retailers sprouting up in Kitchener and across Ontario, you may find it challenging to find a legal weed deliverer close to you.

A Guide to Cannabis Chocolates in Kitchener

Looking to try some cannabis-infused chocolates? Here’s how you can find suitable weed chocolates in Kitchener.

Whether you’re a novice or seasoned consumer, there are a variety of cannabis products, and their consumption methods, in Kitchener to choose from.

While inhalation through combustion or vaporization is the leading method of consuming cannabis, ingesting cannabis in food or drink form is the next best alternative.

So what are cannabis-infused edibles? According to the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse and Addiction (CCSA), edibles are products that contain cannabinoids, chemical compounds found in cannabis, which you can eat or drink.

Cannabis-Infused Chocolates: What Are They and What Are The Different Types?

Cannabis-infused chocolates or weed chocolates, are made with cannabis extracts or concentrates that include active ingredients like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and/or cannabidiol (CBD).

There are numerous cannabis-infused chocolates available in Ontario’s legal market however, Ontario’s regulations permit no more than 10 milligrams (mg) of THC in each edible package and there is no legal limit on the amount of CBD in each edible package.

Let’s look at the different types of weed chocolates that are available in Kitchener:

  1. THC chocolates: chocolates made with cannabis extracts or concentrates with THC as the active ingredient. THC is the main psychoactive cannabinoid that is responsible for the intoxicating “high” effect. 

  2. CBD chocolates: chocolates made with cannabis extracts or concentrates with CBD as the active ingredient, which is another common cannabinoid. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce an intoxicating effect but can reduce the effects of THC.

  3. THC + CBD chocolates: there is also a range of weed chocolates that are infused with both THC and CBD at varying ratios like 1:1, 2:1, 1:2, etc., THC to CBD ratio.

How to Choose a Cannabis Chocolate

The effects of consuming cannabis can be different than when you inhale it. The effects of cannabis can be felt almost instantly when inhaled but, when ingested, it can take anywhere between 30 minutes to 4 hours to fully kick in. 

Also, when we ingest cannabis, our body turns it into a stronger form called 11-hydroxy-THC.

There are many factors that influence the amount of time it takes for a person to feel the intensity and full effects of the cannabis edible like body weight, metabolic rate, etc.

Here are some factors that could help you choose suitable cannabis-infused chocolate:

1. Type of Cannabinoid:

Are you looking for a more psychoactive (THC) or non-psychoactive (CBD) experience? You can choose between only THC or only CBD chocolates. If you’re a first-time user, you could consider THC + CBD chocolates.

2. Amount:

Cannabis-infused chocolates come in different shapes and sizes, ranging from 1 chocolate square to 5 or more squares with 10 mg of THC distributed evenly amongst the squares. Start with a piece of 2.5 mg or less and wait for at least 2 hours to feel the full effects and to avoid overconsumption.

3. Potency:

Legal market cannabis-infused chocolates have an accurate amount of THC or CBD and allow you to get familiar with the potency of the THC and CBD chocolates. So long as you start low and go slow, with some trial and error you can discover how you react to each cannabinoid in different amounts.

4. Time:

Start with the smallest amount and wait at least 2 hours to feel the full effects and to decide if you can consume more. Depending on how cannabis affects you and the amount you consume, the effects can last as long as 6 or even 12 hours.

The Most Popular Cannabis Chocolate Brands in Kitchener

Here are some of the most popular cannabis-infused chocolate brands in Kitchener, Ontario:

1. Bhang Inc.
