Flowers medical marijuana

What is Flower?

Otherwise known as bud, flower consists of the green flowers that populate the female plant, forming tight, dense nuggets. Trichromes are the hairlike growths that appear on cannabis buds that give it the frosty appearance that you might notice. This traditional form of medication can be consumed in a variety of ways, with smoking or vaping being the most common way to medicate, but it can also be incorporated in edibles.

What are Edibles?

Cannabis edibles are food products infused with cannabis compounds, most commonly THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). These compounds interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, offering a unique and often longer-lasting experience compared to smoking or vaping. Edibles come in various forms, from gummies and chocolates to baked goods like brownies or cookies.

What are Concentrates?

Similar to that orange juice concentrate in the back of your freezer, cannabis concentrates are the product of distilling down the most desirable parts of the plant. They contain all the cannabinoids and terpenes of cannabis flowers and none of the excess plant material. Ounce for ounce, marijuana concentrates have a far greater proportion of cannabinoids and terpenes than raw cannabis flowers. Concentrates let you experience the best parts of cannabis in a variety of ways and they come in a variety of textures and formats that can be consumed using several different methods. Depending on the final form they take, cannabis concentrates and extracts may be consumed orally, sprinkled in a joint to increase the potency, vaped, or incorporated into a batch of edibles. 


What are Topical Creams?

Topicals can include cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation. Topicals are often used by patients who want the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the cerebral euphoria associated with other delivery methods as they are non-intoxicating.

What are Cannabis Vape Products? 

Cannabis vaping has soared in popularity recently and it’s easy to see why. Vape pens are portable, require nearly no set up or messy cleanup, and can be quickly puffed and discreetly tucked back into a pocket or bag. You can easily adjust the amount of cannabis you consume and save the rest of the cart for later, making vape pens a really practical method of consumption and as easy as simply pushing a button. Unlike vape products from smoke shops, gas stations and online retailers that have made headlines in recent years for adverse affects due to unknown and harmful ingredients, all vape products that we carry at The Apothecary Shoppe are rigorously tested by state approved labs for safety and efficacy, and use only safe ingredients. What you see on the label are the only ingredients that the product contains. Vaping cannabis involves inhaling heated oil or concentrate through a vaporizing device, most often a vape pen. The process of vaping involves heating the cartridge to a temperature that converts the desirable cannabinoids and terpenes – the compounds found in plant material that provide aroma and flavor – into a vapor.


What are Medical Cannabis Tinctures?

Medical cannabis tinctures are packaged in a 30 mL glass bottle with a dropper. Tincture dosages are easy to self-titrate and measure. Tinctures are easily absorbed by the liver, so the effects are felt more quickly than in pill or gelatin based chewable form. Because of this, tinctures represent an effective method of consumption foYour Title Goes Herer precise dosing.

What types of Cannabidiol (CBD) are available in Louisiana?


Cannabis is a plant that contains over 400 different chemical compounds. The two most commonly known naturally occurring compounds are THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol). There are two types of cannabis plants. One type of cannabis plant is marijuana, which contains varying levels of THC, the compound that produces the “high.” Another type of cannabis plant is hemp, which has extremely low concentrations of THC (no more than 0.30%).

CBD is naturally contained in and can be extracted from either marijuana or hemp. Regardless of whether CBD is extracted from marijuana or hemp, CBD will not make you “high.”

Full Spectrum CBD

A Full Spectrum CBD product means the product contains all compounds naturally found in the plant including compounds like CBD, CBG (Cannabigerol), CBN (Cannabinol), CBC (Cannabichromene), and THC. Full Spectrum CBD may have a stronger natural flavor and odor. Quality Full Spectrum CBD products are typically high in CBD with trace amounts of minor cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, as well as an extremely low concentration of THC (less than 0.30%). This extremely low concentration of THC may still appear as a positive result on a drug test. In such extremely low concentrations, consumers using Full Spectrum CBD products should not feel the psychoactive effects of THC as the THC is only present to help increase the potential “Entourage Effect.”

Broad Spectrum CBD

Broad Spectrum CBD products are identical to Full Spectrum except the product has been processed and refined to remove THC. Broad Spectrum CBD products should contain all cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids naturally found in the plant including compounds like CBD, CBG, CBN and CBC, except THC. Based on lab results, Broad Spectrum CBD products should not have detectable levels of THC. The removal of THC makes Broad Spectrum an excellent alternative to Full Spectrum for consumers who may benefit from CBD but must take drug tests or cannot use Full Spectrum for other reasons.

Isolate CBD

Isolate CBD products have been processed and refined to remove all compounds naturally found in the plant except CBD. Based on lab results, Isolate CBD products should contain over 99% pure CBD and should not have detectable levels of THC.
