Cannabis 101 - Welcome Buds!

What is cannabis and how is it used?

You might know cannabis by one of its many different names: grass, weed, marijuana, Mary Jane or pot. Like Romeo said, “That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet” — or in this case, skunky.

Cannabis is a plant that’s native to Central Asia and India, and has been grown by humans for more than 12,000 years! The leaves, stems and buds (also called flower) can be smoked, used topically, or ingested as a beverage or food. It’s famous for its psychoactive effects, AKA a “high,” but is also used for pain relief, to increase appetite and to support sleep.


You probably know that cannabis can be smoked, but there’s actually a lot of different ways to use MJ!

You’ll find all of these varieties at Bahama Buds:


Also known as buds, the flower is the OG way to use marijuana. The dried flower can be rolled up into joints or used in pipes or bongs.


For the foodies out there! Edibles are drinks and foods that have been infused with THC. There’s something for every palette, from baked goods to savory snacks and gummies.


Like a joint, a vape lets you inhale THC. Unlike a joint, the smoke is actually a vapor. Vapes use THC oil for a more intense high without the classic cough.


Not just a dance move. Dabs are a super-concentrated oil that are smoked from a dab rig.
