Cannabis sativa and cannabis indica are the two main varieties of cannabis, a plant in the Cannabaceae family. Sativa cannabis plants are characterized by their long, narrow leaves and wispy bud structure. They tend to provide uplifting, euphoric effects when consumed. Indica varieties, on the other hand, produce shorter, thicker leaves and more compact buds. Indica strains tend to induce a heavy body "high," often with more relaxing and sometimes sedative effects.
When a sativa plant is cross-bred with an indica plant, the result is known as a hybrid. The majority of cannabis strains in existence today are hybrids, and produce effects varying from relaxing to uplifting. Hybrids can be further classified as sativa-dominant or indica-dominant, depending on which traits the plant inherits.
THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is the most prevalent compound in cannabis. It is both psychoactive and intoxicating. CBD (cannabidiol) is psychoactive as it interacts with receptors in the brain, but not intoxicating. Many patients choose CBD if they do not wish to feel “high” or impaired. Some patients also choose to combine THC and CBD as the two cannabinoids can work synergistically together. This is known as the Entourage Effect.
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in cannabis. There are over 100 of them, but so far THC and CBD have been the most studied. The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a network of receptors in the human body that cannabinoids, as well as endocannabinoids – naturally occurring compounds that the body produces – interact with. The ECS plays a role in many biological functions such as pain, sleep, appetite, and the immune system.
Terpenes are organic compounds found in a variety of plants, fruits, and vegetables. Terpenes produce distinct aromas such as citrus or pine, and are responsible for the flavor of cannabis strains. Besides flavor and aroma, terpenes may also have therapeutic applications. They work in combination with cannabinoids to produce a range of effects called the Entourage Effect.
There are many factors that can result in a varied THC/CBD level from batch to batch. This means that if you tried a strain that had 10% THC, when you look for it again on our website you may notice it has a slightly higher or lower THC percentage.
We occasionally offer products that have been sterilized, as well as products that have not been. Sterilization is safe and widely used in the production of prescription pharmaceuticals, food, and medical supplies.
All Zenabis products are tested by an independent, third-party laboratory for over 50 unapproved pesticides, heavy metals, aflatoxins, bacteria, and microbials. Zenabis' goal is to grow the highest quality cannabis in the country and we commit to providing our patients with access to the Certificate of Analysis (CoA) for every product.
There are many different ways to consume cannabis. While smoking and vaporizing are the most common methods, cannabis can also be eaten, applied topically or even used as a suppository. Currently the only legal forms of cannabis available for purchase are dried flower and sublingual oil. However, you may make your own edibles* and topicals with medical cannabis obtained from a Licensed Producer.
*When infusing food with cannabis, make sure to decarboxylate your cannabis first by heating the ground up flower in an oven at 110°C (230°F) for 30-45 minutes.
While the right dose for each patient will vary, surveys show that the majority of people using both inhaled or orally ingested cannabis strictly for medicinal purposes reported consuming an average of 0.5 to 3 grams per day.
There is no data available yet to suggest cannabis has a firm expiration date. Zenabis recommends that you store your medical cannabis in a cool, dark location. Health Canada states that the ideal storage temperature for dried cannabis is 2°C to 6°C with a shelf life of 12 months.
Absolutely, you can combine different Zenabis products to see which combination works best for you. Some patients find they prefer certain types of cannabis in the day, and other varieties in the evening or at night.
Vaporizing or "vaping" refers to using a device called a vaporizer to consume cannabis without combusting or smoking it. As opposed to using an open flame, vaporizers use an internal element to heat the cannabis to a temperature which is hot enough to vaporize the active ingredients (cannabinoids and terpenoids) without combusting the plant material.
Zenabis recommends vaporization as a method of consumption, as it reduces the health risks associated with smoking cannabis.
Your actions should directly reflect the severity of your reaction. If severe, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital. If your reaction is mild, contact your physician as soon as possible. Either way, please let your physician know about your reaction.

Currently, there are a few employee health insurance plans that cover medical cannabis. Organizations continue to announce they will be covering medical cannabis, such as Sun Life Assurance Co in February 2018, and more will likely add coverage in the near future.
As a medical cannabis patient, you are allowed to carry the lesser of 150 grams and 30 times your daily prescribed amount. This is in addition to the 30 grams of non-medical cannabis all adults in Canada are permitted to possess.
Travelling with medical cannabis is permitted within Canada, but you must carry your registration documentation and keep your cannabis in its original container if carrying more than 30 grams. If you're flying, call the airline ahead of time to ensure you won't run into any security delays.
DO NOT TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF CANADA WITH ANY CANNABIS PRODUCT.

At this time, Zenabis is not issuing patient ID cards. This is because, under the Cannabis Regulations, such a card does not provide proof that you are a medicinal cannabis patient. If you are ever questioned by the authorities, there are only 2 pieces of documentation that prove you are legally allowed to possess medical cannabis: the original product label or your order invoice.
