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 resin 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.

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 psychoactive effect 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 the psychoactive effects. 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 extremely 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 produce Psychoactive effects?”

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 produce psychoactive effects.

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 psychoactive effects 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.

Q:Who can purchase cannabis legally in Nevada?

Anyone from any state or country in the world who is at least 21 years old can purchase cannabis. Per Nevada state law, minors are not permitted on our partner dispensaries for any reason at any time.

Q:What do I need to purchase cannabis at a Nevada Cannabis Company?

Patrons must have a valid government-issued id on their person in order to enter a medicinal dispensary store.  Regardless of your apparent age, a dispensary attendant cannot serve you without a valid id. A medical recommendation or ‘green card’ is necessary.

Q:May I use a credit card?

No.  At this time, Nevada Cannabis Companies accept cash only.  Most all dispensaries have an ATM on site as well as cashless ATMs at each register.

Q:What is the purchase limit?  How much cannabis can an individual buy?

There are limits to how much patrons can purchase at one time.  They are as follows:

  • 28 Grams of flower
  • 3500 MG Of THC for concentrates and edibles.
  • Amounts cannot exceed either of these, 3500 MG is one eighth of twenty eight grams, and any concentrate product can be multiplied by eight to give the flower value.For example, you could have 1 half oz of flower, and 1750MG Of THC in concentrates or edibles.

Q:Can I take cannabis out of Nevada?

At this time, it is illegal to take marijuana purchased legally in Nevada anywhere outside of Nevada state, including other states, territories or countries. Doing so may result in significant legal penalties.

Q:Where can I consume cannabis?

Nevada State law protects private marijuana use, so you can consume openly in a residence as long as the property owner allows it. Marijuana cannot be consumed in public view, such as on streets and sidewalks, or in public parks. In addition, the state prohibits smoking of any kind in public places and places of employment.

Q:How do you guys feel about tourists?

We LOVE tourists!  We are honored that you’ve chosen to visit us.

Q:How does cartridge compare to flower, and how much THC do you consume per hit?

Each cartridge will vaporize slightly different, and it’s difficult to definitively measure the exact milligram amount vaporized in each draw. Factors like draw strength, battery power, and cartridge type will all impact the amount of cannabis oil being consumed. For first-time users, we recommend talking with a budtender to find a low THC/high CBD strain and starting very small when consuming. Light consumption can mean only drawing for one or two seconds and then assessing the result. A little bit of experimentation is a good way to see how long of a draw is necessary to find the effects you want.

Q:Isn’t THC the only number you need?

While THC is the most well-known cannabinoid, it is not the most important. There are a number of other cannabinoids, including CBD, THCV, and CBN, not to mention hundreds of terpenes, that impact the benefits and effects of a given strain. It’s this myriad of compounds that make different cannabis strains so unique, with some creating an energetic uplifting effect and others putting you to sleep.

Q:How does edible THC compare to smoking?

The milligram content of edibles is small because your liver processes almost all of the THC that you ingest. When smoking is the method of consumption, THC is partially destroyed during the heating process, which means you aren’t getting the entire effect of the product. The same is true of inhaling – you don’t absorb all of the THC in the smoke brought into your lungs, and a good amount is still present in the smoke or vapor you exhale. For this reason, even heavy smokers may find that edibles will affect them more noticeably. Individual metabolisms also play a big role in how an edible will affect someone. Those with faster metabolisms will process cannabis faster and feel the effects both begin and fade more quickly. If you have a slower metabolism, it can take longer for effects to begin, which means they will take longer to recede as well.

Q:Will all batteries work with your Cartridges?

No. Not all batteries and cartridges are compatible. We recommend pairing all Kynd brand cartridges with Kynd brand batteries, as each battery puts out a specific voltage for each cartridge. Using a voltage that’s too high can produce a vapor that is not only damaging to the hardware but detrimental to your health.
