Their prices are surprisingly competitive, given the luxurious setting, because of direct delivery from BC craft growers (licensed producers).

One of the most common questions they are asked is “What is the difference between CBD, THC, and CBN?”

CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are two of the most recognized and studied active compounds (cannabinoids) found in cannabis. Despite their similar chemical structures, they have distinct effects on the body. THC is best known for its psychoactive properties, which produce the characteristic "high" associated with cannabis use. It achieves this effect by binding with cannabinoid receptors in the brain, leading to sensations of euphoria or intoxication. CBD, on the other hand, is non-psychoactive and doesn't induce this high, making it an appealing option for those looking for relief without altered mental states. Instead, CBD has gained attention for its potential health benefits, including reducing anxiety and improving sleep quality. While they share some therapeutic traits, their different impacts on the mind and body underscore the importance of understanding each cannabinoid's unique characteristics. Cannabinol (CBN) is one of the many compounds, known as cannabinoids, found in the cannabis plant. Unlike its more famous counterpart, THC, CBN is not psychoactive and won't get you "high". However, it does exhibit a range of potential therapeutic effects. Some research suggests that it may help with sleep issues, acting as a powerful sedative. Other potential benefits of CBN include anti-inflammatory properties, pain relief, and even the promotion of bone growth. As with any cannabinoid, it is important to remember that research is still in the early stages and effects can vary significantly between individuals.
