ABOUT OUR MEDICINE
Here at SSCC we pride ourselves on providing our members with the highest quality medical cannabis products available anywhere.
Depending on a patients individual therapeutic needs, certain types of medical cannabis products might be more beneficial than others. Additionally, different methods of ingesting medical cannabis products (vapor, tincture, topical, & edible) can provide patients with various therapeutic advantages.
EDIBLES vs. VAPORIZING
The medicinal effect from vaporizing (or smoking) medical cannabis can take effect within seconds providing patients with rapid therapeutic relief. Patients who are interested in treating acute symptoms such as movement disorders, nausea, & acute pain might find vaporizing to be a particularly beneficial form of ingesting medical cannabis.
For other patients, ingesting edible forms of medical cannabis might provide significantly greater therapeutic relief. Edible medical cannabis products are capable of providing patients with a much longer therapeutic effect than that of vaporizing cannabis (up to 5 or more hours). Edibles typically have a slower therapeutic onset than vaporizing does (often 45 minutes or more). Edible products can often provide much greater therapeutic strength than vaporizing cannabis if the edible is taken at the correct dosage.
When taking edibles we recommend patients to start with a low dosage (10mg - 20mg THC), and then slowly work their way up to find which dosage level is suitable for their individual therapeutic needs.
INDICAS, SATIVAS, & HYBRIDS
We classify our cannabis products into one of three different strain categories; Indica, Hybrid, or Sativa. This category is determined by evaluating the genetic lineage of the strain, information provided by the grower/breeder, as well as feedback we receive from our members regarding the medicinal properties of a product.
Every cannabis strain has its own unique therapeutic properties. Depending on whether a strain is classified as an Indica, Hybrid, or Sativa often has a significant impact which properties the cultivar will provide.
Indica Dominant Cannabis: Cannabis that is indica dominate will typically deliver a therapeutic effect that is relaxing, tranquil, & sedative. Indica cannabis strains are known for being particularly effective for muscle relaxation, appetite enhancement, & for use as a sleep-aid. Patients looking to treat conditions such as muscle spasms, insomnia, migraines, anxiety, & movement disorders might find using indica cannabis strains to be particularly beneficial. Certain 'high-potency' indica varieties can cause an extremely powerful & deeply relaxing sedative "couch-lock" effect. Indica cannabis is particularly ideal for nighttime use.
Hybrid Cannabis: Cannabis classified as being "hybrid cannabis" refers to strains that have both indica and sativa genetics in their lineage. Hybrid strains will generally provide patients with a combination of both indica and sativa therapeutic properties. Hybrids can be either indica dominant, sativa dominant, or offer a balance of both indica and sativa medicinal properties. Indica dominant hybrids that are particularly high in potency often deliver a very powerful "buzzing body high" effect. This effect can be particularly beneficial for treating chronic pain, nausea, & various movement disorders. Other hybrids can offer a less intense, and more uplifting/euphoric effect that's particularly ideal for elevating mood and staying energized. There is a huge array of therapeutic properties to be found within the hybrid category!
Sativa Dominant Cannabis: Sativa dominant cannabis strains typically provide patients with a medicinal effect that's uplifting, energizing, creative, & focused. Strains that are sativa dominant are particularly suitable for daytime use as they often help increase energy levels for patients. Using sativa strains allows patients to obtain many of the anti-inflammatory & anesthetic properties of medical cannabis, without the sedative/drowsy effect associated with many indica dominant cultivars.
DRIED CURED FLOWERS
We offer an amazing selection of premium quality cured flowers grown by some of the best growers in California. All of our top shelf flowers have superb flavor & potency when vaporized. We carry cured flowers from many highly respected growers including The Village, Jungle Boys, Emerald Farms, Nameless Genetics, Kush Co., Gold Coast Collection, Trichadelics, Alien Labs, & more! To consume dried flowers, we recommend using a vaporizer product.
Also commonly known as 'Wax', hydrocarbon concentrates are extracted using either butane or another petroleum based solvent. These extracts are incredibly potent, and can reach THC levels over 70%+. Vaporizing just a small amount of a hydrocarbon extract (often referred to as "dabbing") can provide patients with a very powerful therapeutic effect within just seconds. To efficiently vaporize this extract we recommend patients use either a water pipe with a quartz nail, or a vaporizer pen.
Our selection of shatters, sauces, budder, and saps is second to none. We carry hydrocarbon extracts produced by many of the most in-demand extract companies out there including Southern Humboldt Concentrate, Critical Concentrates, Beezle Extracts, OC X, FlyNHigh Extracts, Brutal Bee, BAMF, Gold Coast Extracts, Shiva Farms, HGH Extractions, Moxie Extracts, Maximus Extracts, Loud Pack Extracts, & much more! Whether you're looking for premium live-resin sauces, or budget waxes for low donations, we have you covered.
*To ensure a safe and clean product, we only carry hydrocarbon extracts made from companies using closed-loop systems and lab-grade vacuum ovens.
We carry the largest selection of world-class quality solventless extracts of any dispensary in Northern California. Solventless extracts are made without the use of any hydrocarbon based solvent. Solventless extracts can be broken into four fundamental categories.
- Ice Water Extracts - Made by agitating plant material in ice cold water. The product is then either air-dried or freeze-dried. The resulting product is 99%+ purity trichome heads. When ice water extracts are made from expertly frown freshly frozen colas, the resulting hash product is phenomenal quality.
- 99% Purity Dry Sift - This extract is made by refining dry plant resin through screens. The resulting product is 99%+ purity trichome heads. The unique thing about this form of extract is that the trichome heads are left completely intact.
- Rosin - Also referred to as 'solventless-hash-oil', this form of solventless extract is produced by pressing ice-water-hash, dry-sift, or flowers between heated metal plates. This process produces an oil that's incredibly pure, rich in terpenes, & high in cannabinoids. Rosin made from dried-flowers will typically have particularly high terpenoid levels, making them notably flavorful. Rosins made from ice-water-hash often have remarkably high cannabinoid & terpene potency, making them very powerful. Like, wax, rosin can take on many consistencies depending on how its crafted; ranging from stable shatter, sappy goo, thick taffy-like wax, dry blonde coins, and more.
- Distillate - Cannabis distillate is made by using steam distillation techniques. The consistency of the product is a very sappy liquid-like oil. Most distillates come packaged in syringes to make them easier to handle. Distillate can be dabbed, prepared into edibles, or used with vaporizer pens. Pure THC & CBD distillate (with no terpenes added) are very popular with patients looking to discreetly inhale cannabinoids without producing any cannabis aroma. Other patients prefer the THC distillate infused with natural terpenes because it adds flavor while enhancing the therapeutic properties of cannabinoids.
We offer a wide range of edible products including baked goods, candies, chocolates, caramels, beverages, capsules, CBD-infusions & more!
Ingesting edible medical cannabis products provide patients with a much longer effect than vaporizing cannabis. Edibles can deliver a very powerful therapeutic effect from 4 to 6 hours or more depending on the dosage and the patients body chemistry. Lower edible doses can be taken during the daytime to provide therapeutic relief without a loss of energy or focus. Higher-dose edibles are often used by patients as a powerful muscle relaxer, anti-inflammatory, and sleep-aid.
Ingesting edible cannabis products can provide therapeutic relief for a plethora of medical conditions including movement disorders, insomnia, cancer, chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, mood disorders, inflammation, arthritis, migraines, and much more.
We offer edible products from some of the most renowned names in the industry including Bhang Chocolates, Korova, Reve Confections, Andy's Edibles, Koala Edibles, Kiva Confections, & more! Check out our edible refrigerator next time you stop by and browse all the delicious THC-infused goodness we have to offer.
Using tinctures gives patients the ability to benefit from the discretion and dosage accuracy of edible preparations, while also providing a much faster onset than most edibles typically do.
Tinctures are absorbed sublingually, allowing cannabinoids to enter the bloodstream at a much faster rate. After ingesting tinctures, patients can start feeling therapeutic relief in just minutes. The effect can last anywhere from 1-3 hours depending on the dosage and patients body chemistry.
We carry a wide range of tincture products including high-CBD tinctures by Care By Design, as well as high-THC tinctures by Hummingbird naturals.
