Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to some of the commonly asked questions in the discussion about
KYND and Cannabis use in Nevada

Q:Where can I buy legal cannabis?

Legal Cannabis can be purchased from any licensed Medical Marijuana Dispensary in the State of Nevada.  You must be a card-holding medical marijuana patient over the age of 21.


Q:Is Cannabis safe medicine?

Cannabis might possibly be the safest medicine! Without decades’ worth of clinical trials, it is nearly impossible to make health claims on the long-term efficacy and safety of cannabis. Although, recent medical breakthroughs and efficacy discoveries coupled with thousands of years of human consumption without a single death by overdose are strong reasons for the growing popularity of cannabis as a safer alternative to a wide range of pharmaceuticals with nasty side-effects.


Q:What’s the difference between legal cannabis and the “black market?”

Legal cannabis grown in a controlled agricultural environment ensures that patients receive consistent quality of medicine where they do not have to second guess contamination or potency issues. All legal cannabis grown and sold by Kynd is rigorously tested for contaminants and potency. While some “black market” marijuana may be “small batch” or “high test,” there is no way to assure consistency or any true methods to enforce quality standards. This means that patients in other states that have to deal with the irregular black market may be putting themselves at greater health risk.


Q:What’s the difference between Sativa and Indica?

In general, a “sativa” dominant strain is one that produces energetic or euphoric effects. The plant structure tends to be taller and thinner with the fan leaves appearing long and serrated. On the other hand, “indica” dominant strains tend to be a bit shorter and stalky with wide, waxy looking fan leaves and more readily evident trichrome production. Trichomes are the sugary little pollen glands that are responsible for carrying most of the medicinal effects of the different strains.


Q:What’s the difference between cannabis and “Marijuana?”

Cannabis Sativa is the scientific name for what is commonly referred to as Marijuana. While there is really no difference between the two, there is a long history of using the term “Marijuana” in order to demonize the plant and its users. In modern times, slang words like “marijuana, reefer, weed, & dope” are being replaced by more common or technical descriptions like “flower & cannabis”


Q:What’s the difference between THC and CBD?

THC and CBD are the most widely understood cannabinoids produced by cannabis plants. THC is responsible for the psychotropic “high” that is associated with cannabis consumption, while CBD is largely responsible for anti-inflammatory and anti-convulsive effects. A wide variety of THC dominant plants will range in potency and effect, while high CBD varieties tend to be cultivated from Cannabis Ruderalis, or common Hemp and account for much of the good press that cannabis has been acquiring lately. CBD is a non-psychoactive botanical drug substance that can be used without feeling “stoned.” In the long run, studies are showing that there is an enhanced effect when THC and CBD are used together, known as the “Entourage Effect.”


Q:What are extracts and concentrates?

Extracts and concentrates are generally understood as Hashish or Hash Oils. By focusing on the plant pollen and discarding the plant material, hash makers can produce extrememly effective medicines that isolate the best parts of the plant. These extracts are then used as the source materials for a host of products from vape pens to edible candies and topical products.


Q:Will topical cannabis products get me “high?”

In general, Kynd Topical products are crafted to isolate THCa – this is a non-psychoactive precursor to delta9-THC (the stuff that gets you high). THCa is a transdermal carrier as well as an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic substance, assisting in the delivery of cannabis based relief. In short, no. Kynd Topical products are not designed to get patients high, but rather to provide truly therapeutic effects to localized parts of the body in order to relieve pain, tension, and aches. It is important to read the labels and see how products are made! Some topicals out there are designed to get you high.


Q:What’s the difference between a tincture and an edible?

Tinctures are meant to provide dosing through the mucous membrane below the patient’s tongue. This provides effects much more quickly by delivering THC and other cannabinoids to the bloodstream faster than through normal digestion. Edibles, however, must be eaten and metabolized (processed through the digestive system and the liver). Be aware that a cannabis tincture may produce effects like an edible if swallowed without sub-lingual uptake.


Q:How much should I take?

Everyone is built a little differently, so Kynd always recommends to start using products with the least amount of possible dosing in order to test a patient’s tolerance. As patients become more used to cannabis-based medicines, the dosage required for full effectiveness may increase. It’s always best to take as little as possible until the patient has a notable effect.


Q:What if I take too much?

Thankfully, no one has ever truly overdosed from cannabis in a way that would cause death. However, if a patient with a low tolerance takes in too much THC, it is always advisable to consume a CBD product that can counteract the psychoactive effects. CBD intake will almost always reduce the feeling of being “stoned” and produce mental clarity and stress relief. In the long run, the age old recommendation to “sleep it off” may work best. Remember to always consume cannabis responsibly and that the effects of cannabis are greatly enhanced when mixed with other substances like alcoholic beverages.
