What is Silk Road NYC?
Silk Road NYC is a unique intersection where the rich legacy of the ancient silk routes and the infamous spirit of the infamous spirit of the Silk Road Dark Web Marketplace converge, giving rise to a new era of cannabis culture in NYC.
A Socially equitable marketplace. A community- a gathering place for like-minded individuals to share stories, insights, and moments of camaraderie.
A Consumer driven Adult Use Retail Dispensary . A haven where individuals 21 + can indulge in the world of cannabis. A sanctuary to redefine the narrative and foster a culture of education, respect, and responsible consumption.
Sativa often produces a “mind high,” or an
energizing, anxiety-reducing effect. If you use sativa-dominant strains, you may feel productive and creative, not relaxed and lethargic.
Farmers and producers select hybrids for their unique impacts. They can range from reducing anxiety and stress to easing symptoms of chemotherapy or radiation.
Indica is sought after for its intensely relaxing effects. It may also help reduce nausea and pain and increase appetite.
Cannabis plants contain dozens of chemical compounds called cannabinoids.
These naturally occurring components are responsible for producing many of the effects, both negative and positive of cannabis use. Researchers still don’t understand what all of the cannabinoids do, but they have identifed two main ones tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD)as well as several less common compounds.
THC is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis plants.
It’s responsible for the “high” or state of euphoria associated with cannabis use.
Levels of THC have been increasing as growers try to create hybrids
with greater concentration of the compound.
CBD is non-impairing or non-euphoric. It doesn’t cause a “high.” However, it may produce many physical benefits, such as reducing pain and nausea, preventing seizures, and easing migraine headaches.
A great deal of attention is paid to the amount of THC and CBD in a given strain, but newer research suggests that terpenes may be just as impactful. Terpenes are another naturally occurring compound in the cannabis plant. The terpenes present directly affect the plant’s smell. They may also influence the effects that specific strains produce.
The path THC takes through your body is actually dictated by how you consume it. If inhaled, the cannabinoids and terpenes travel rapidly from the lungs to the blood and brain. But if you ingest THC, the path to the blood and brain is not so simple. Cannabis taken orally must first be absorbed from the intestines and sent through the liver. Any cannabinoids sent to the liver, will be metabolized by your liver cells.
