Natural Flower Products

The choice of using natural marijuana flowers as the formulation for therapeutic use has advantages over other formulations beyond simply being more affordable. Because the flowers have not been processed they contain all of the more than 100 pharmacologically active constituents typically associated with the particular strain of the flower. It is believed that the ultimate therapeutic benefits related to marijuana are determined not solely by the singular constituents’ independent effects but instead they result from the synergy of all, or at least many, of the constituents acting together, known as the “Entourage Effect.” The distillates processed for vaping or tinctures are selectively limited and may not contain the optimal constituent profile to achieve the desired therapeutic benefits.

 

Storing Flower

Bear in mind that cannabinoids and terpenes are sensitive compounds; they’re affected by heat, air, and light.

When you purchase a cannabis product, like a flower or even tincture, be sure to store it properly to preserve their valuable constituents. For flower, use a glass jar instead of plastic or metal. Glass is airtight and nonporous, specifically mason jars. Keep your cannabis products somewhere:

  • Cool
  • Dark
  • Away from moisture
  • Clean
  • Out of reach of children and pets

 

Regarding the cannabinoid and terpene profiles reported below, it should be noted that the relative content and percentages indicated will vary from grower to grower as well as from crop to crop with the same grower. That being said, the relative content of terpenes is strongly inherited while total yield per weight is more dependent onenvironmental factors. These reported profiles are provided to allow for ballpark predictions of constituent contents. Constituents with content of 0.05% or greater are purportedly considered to be potentially significant.

 

Unfortunately, the most common, simplistic approach to the use of marijuana flowers is to smoke them, either in a pipe or in a joint. However, one should carefully assess this approach as not only are other methods of use are available but they may be preferable. Vaping rather than smoking is recommended for those who wish to inhale the flower for rapid effect.  Alternatively,  cooking flower as an edible product offers benefits as well.

 

Smoking vs Vaping

Smoking flowers by combustion is associated with greater health risks including chronic bronchitis as opposed to vaping, the preferred method of inhalation. Additionally, vaping provides a more efficient means of extracting THC and other constituents from the flower. For example, the bioavailability of cannabis is:

    • Smoking: 25-30% bioavailability (Reports vary from 2-56%)
    • Vaporization: 30-60% bioavailability

This means that one may access as much as twice as much of a flowers active constituents by vaping rather than smoking.

See: Inhalation: Smoking vs Vaping

 

Vaping Temperatures

Vaporizers should provide the option of setting a vape temperature. The reason for this is that different cannabinoids and terpenes vaporize at different temperatures. If the flower is not heated to a temperature sufficient to vaporize the particular constituents in the flower, these constituents won’t be able to be inhaled and their benefits will be lost.

 

Lower Temperatures

In general, cannabinoids vaporize at temperatures from 315• – 430• F (157• – 220• C)  while terpenes vaporize at temperatures from 150• – 390• F (66• – 198• C). While it may be best to set the temperature as low as possible to avoid irritation of the airways, the temperature should be set 10• – 15• F) above the vaporizing point (VP), or boiling point, of the desired constituent with the highest VP. With each flower listed below, the minimum VP is identified based on the terpene profile (when known).

One can also modify the effects of vaping flower by adjusting the temperature directed at modulating the THC which vaporizes at 315• F. By vaping at, or just above this temperature, less THC will be released allowing for a more subtle effect compared with higher settings which will create                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     m                                                          a greater burst of vaporized THC. And, depending on the terpene profile of the strain, one can also modify the experience by modulating the terpene vaaporization.

For example, the terpene pinene (which promotes alertness) is vaporized at 311• F, so keeping the temperature around 315• – 320• allows for a more subtle THC experience with the addition of the uplifting pinene effects, while at the same time by keeping the temperature below 330• F it will avoid the sedating effects of any myrcene present since it needs 330• F to vaporize. 

One should be aware that β-caryophyllene, arguably the most important terpene for pain benefits, vaporizes at a significantly lower temperature (266• F) and would therefore be available at the temperatures discussed above. 

 

Higher Temperatures

Some cannabinoids have higher vaporization temperatures, including cannabichromene (CBC – 428• F), cannabinol (CBN – 365• F) and THCV (428• F). Of note, CBD doesn’t have a clear set VP, it is more of a vaporization range from 320-356• F (160-180°C), slightly higher than THC.

Therefore, to be certain to get the benefit of the full complement of cannabinoids and a more rapid vaporization of THC and CBD for the strongest impact, higher vaporizing temperatures should be used (430-450• F).

 

While vaporization points are meaningful, they are not absolute.  The fact is, to a small degree both may sublimate off at a lower temperature. An additional factor is the vape chamber of the device may not heat the chamber contents perfectly evenly, creating hot and cold spots in the flower that will affect over-all vaporization.

 

The minimum vaporizing temperatures listed with each flower below is the temperature at which all significant constituent cannabinoids and terpenes will vaporize.

 

Oven-style Vaporizers

Oven-style vaporizers for marijuana flower are available (see below), but usually not sold in LA pharmacies. Vaporizers designed for use with loose marijuana flower have a small “oven” chamber that allows for loading up to 0.3 gms (300 mg) of flower to be vaped. The vaporizer heats the flower to 360 – 420• F over about 45 seconds until it is ready for inhalation. There are multiple brands and models available in vape shops and on the internet but they are not sold in LA marijuana pharmacies. One popular oven-style vaporizer is the Pax 2 which sells for $150 on the manufacturer’s website. However, there are other products available from local vape shops that are much less expensive with prices as low as $40.

See: List of Cannabis Flower Vape Devices

 

Cooking Flower for Use as an Edible Alternative

When prepared properly, flowers can also be made into edible forms that offer distinctively different and potentially advantageous benefits over inhalation. While it is well known that ingesting cannabis products by eating them provides a slower onset but more prolonged effects, it is actually more complicated than that.

It’s also important to remember when cooking cannabis that terpenes can be destroyed by high temperatures, so always cook it “low and slow.” The goal is to ensure that the terpenes remain intact through the cooking or baking process to maintain the unique, special benefits they offer.

The Growers: Good Day Farm and Ilera

Good Day Farm and Ilera are the two cannabis growers certifed by the state of Louisiana to provide marijuana products containing Δ-9 THC with content >0.3% for sale to the public. They have released many natural marijuana plant buds, see below, available in multiples of 1 gm amounts. As buds, they can be vaped, smoked or prepared into edible products. Additional strains become available often, but unfortunately their availability precedes any appropriate and necessary information regarding their cannabinoid and terpene profiles.

 

The flowers should offer relatively consistent cannabinoid and terpene profiles over time based on the specific cloning of their plants but the constituent profiles will always vary somewhat when growing and processing variables are introduced. The cannabinoid and terpene profiles provide significant hints as to expected therapeutic benefits but it remains unknown as to the specific amounts of the terpenes are present in current marijuana products. Furthermore, research is still lacking as to definitive therapeutic benefits associated with specific terpenes nor is there an understanding of dosing or preferred route of administration, inhalation, oral or sublingual.

 

Actual good quality human research studies evaluating therapeutic benefits of specific marijuana strains are completely lacking largely due to DEA-based legal restraints on THC research. It is also important to emphasize that the purported therapeutic benefits assigned to various marijuana strains are mostly based on anecdotal evidence from public surveys, usually obtained from popular marijuana websites. These websites include:

 

The following is a breakdown of the constituents and purported therapeutic benefits of each strain.

Chem OG Flyer

Chem OG is a sativa-dominant hybrid (70% sativa/ 30% indica) marijuana strain crossed between two legendary strains: Chemdawg and OG Kush. Per Leafly, “Uplifting and euphoric, OG Chem invites the mind to indulge in its creative side while elevating the mood to a light and carefree state. Medical marijuana patients use OG Chem to treat symptoms associated with stress and fatigue.”

 

Per www.AskGrowers.com:

“Many users may find the aroma quite overwhelming due to its strong chemical smell, mixed with pine. It is due to the presence of Carene terpene in its composition, which is why there is likely the smell of fresh diesel.” Also, “this marijuana strain may be the choice of many artistic people, as its high starts with a long enough feeling of euphoria mixed with creativity. At the same time, Chem OG strain lifts the mood and relaxes the body. Reported effects include happiness, talkativeness, focusing and energizing. But if you have a low tolerance or use too much, you may experience severe hunger, thirst, and concern. Also, this weed flower has the ability to eliminate the symptoms of a myriad of ailments:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Pain
  • Mood swings

Morockin’ Kush (Ilera):

Morockin’ Kush Flyer – not available

Per LA grower, (Ilera)

THC: – 20 .4% 

Other cannabinoids and terpenes profiles are not available.

 

Per Leafly,

“Morockin’ Kush is an evenly hybrid landrace strain with slightly more indica-like effects. It offers a classic kush high that starts with a sense of happiness that drives out negative thoughts and is accompanied by a sleepy physical high that will leave you feeling fully sedated. Lineage: Morockin Landrace F2 crossed with Pakistani Landrace Kush F3. THC levels may vary by batch.” THC, CBD and other cannabinoids and terpenes levels not reported.

 

Per AskGrowers,

“Morockin’ Kush is an Indica-leaning breed that has Kush as its parent strain. It lacks the harshness of more powerful weed varieties and has a pretty low THC content. The average THC level is 5%, with higher estimates as high as 8%. The most considerable amount of CBD tested is 0.05-0.58%. The effects produced by the Morockin’ Kush strain are very smooth, so it can be used by first-timers and other consumers who are tired of heavy-hitting cannabis options.

Despite its Indica genes, Morockin’ Kush is quite an energizing strain that induces concentration and focus. Due to uplifted feelings, smokers become sociable and chatty. With some time passing, users experience calm and relaxation, but don’t get sleepy.

This marijuana is known for primarily positive effects, but some hypersensitive smokers may get hunger and fatigue as typical adverse reactions.”

 

Per Allbud,

Morockin Kush is a rare evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% indica/50% sativa). Its  “high starts with a subtle build of euphoria, filling the mind with a sense of pure happiness and ease that pushes out any negative or racing thoughts immediately. This is accompanied by a sleepy physical high that quickly has you feeling fully sedated before you know it. With these effects and its high 24-26% average THC level and 1-2% CBD level, Morockin Kush is often chosen to treat those suffering from conditions such as insomnia, chronic pain, depression or mood swings and muscle spasms or cramps.

Selecting the Flower Product for Personal Needs

See:  Selecting Flower Products

 

Based on the anecdotal information currently available, the following recommendations can be made for choosing which flower to try:

  • Grease Monkey if pain is your main concern
  • Mandarin Zkittles if sleep is a dominant concern
  • Mandarin Cookies if anxiety and/or depression are dominant concerns
  • Lilac Diesel may be best for feeling happy, relaxed and uplifting one’s mood while offering some pain benefit
  • Lumpy Space Princess appears to mostly offer an uplifting effect, with an energizing euphoria rather than relaxation, but it does not seem to stand out for pain benefit.
  • Planet of the Grapes, with its high THC content, should be avoided by the inexperienced or those sensitive to the side effects of THC

 

All strains should provide relaxation, except Lumpy Space Princess which is more energizing, and all should provide some pain benefit.
