Cannabis Strains

At Waabigwan Mashkiki, we offer a diverse selection of cannabis strains inspired by the natural world and the cultural heritage of the Anishinaabe. Each strain is carefully cultivated to fully express the unique characteristics and effects associated with its variety.

THC

THC is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis, responsible for producing the euphoric "high" commonly associated with marijuana use. While not traditionally a part of Anishnaabe culture, THC has recently been embraced for its ability alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and induce relaxation. By targeting cannabinoid receptors in the brain, THC can modulate mood and perception, offering relief from stress and anxiety.

CBD

CBD is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid known for its potential therapeutic effects, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anxiolytic properties. CBD is valued for its ability to promote balance and wellness within the body. By interacting with cannabinoid receptors throughout the body, CBD can help alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and support overall health and vitality.

CBG & CBN

CBG and CBN are lesser-known cannabinoids found in cannabis, each with their own unique effects and potential benefits. CBG is thought to have anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and appetite-stimulating properties, while CBN is believed to have sedative effects and may help promote sleep.

Behind Cannabinoids

The use of cannabinoids in medicinal practices dates back centuries, embodying many of the values of traditional healing and medicine shared by the Anishnaabe. While not an active practice until the 1960s, the many compounds found within the plant have since been revered for their ability to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and restore balance to the body. Today, we are inspired by the Anishnaabe tradition of natural healing traditions by harnessing the power of cannabinoids in our products.

Limonene.

Known for its citrusy aroma, limonene is believed to have mood-boosting and stress-relieving effects.

Myrcene.

With a musky and earthy aroma, myrcene is thought to have sedative and pain-relieving properties.

Pinene.

With a piney scent reminiscent of forests, pinene is believed to have anti-inflammatory and bronchodilator effects.

Aroma & Flavor

In traditional medicine, terpenes were valued not only for their aromatic properties but also for their therapeutic benefits. Different terpenes were associated with specific healing properties, from calming anxiety to reducing inflammation. By growing terpene rich cannabis strains, we honor the wisdom of our ancestors and their reverence for the natural world.

Embarking on your cannabis journey can be an exciting and deeply personal experience. Whether you’re exploring cannabis for recreational or medicinal purposes, it’s essential to approach it with mindfulness and respect. At Waabigwan Mashkiki, we’re here to guide you every step of the way as you begin your exploration of this remarkable plant.

Choosing the right products.

We believe in the importance of selecting cannabis products that align with your individual needs and preferences. Our knowledgeable staff can help you navigate our diverse selection of strains and products, ensuring that you find the perfect fit for your wellness journey.

Responsible consumption.

Responsible consumption is key to maximizing the benefits of cannabis while minimizing potential risks. Whether you’re new to cannabis or a seasoned enthusiast, it’s important to start low and go slow when experimenting with dosage and consumption methods. Remember to always consume cannabis in a safe and comfortable environment, and never operate machinery or drive under the influence.

Smoking.

Smoking cannabis involves inhaling the smoke produced by burning dried flowers or concentrates. This method offers fast-acting effects and allows for precise control over dosage. Many users enjoy the ritualistic aspect of smoking and the immediate relief it provides for symptoms such as pain or nausea.

Vaping.

Vaping involves heating cannabis flower or concentrates to a temperature that vaporizes the active compounds without burning them. Vaporizing is considered a healthier alternative to smoking as it produces fewer harmful byproducts. Vaping also allows for discreet consumption and precise temperature control, allowing users to customize their experience.

Edibles.

Edibles are food or beverage products infused with cannabis extracts. Consuming cannabis orally through edibles offers a longer-lasting and more intense high compared to smoking or vaping. Edibles are popular for their convenience and discretion, making them an excellent option for users seeking a more controlled and prolonged experience.

Tinctures.

Tinctures are liquid extracts of cannabis, typically taken sublingually (under the tongue) for rapid absorption into the bloodstream. Tinctures offer a discreet and convenient consumption method, allowing for precise dosing and customizable effects. They are particularly popular among medical cannabis users for their ease of use and accurate dosing.

Consumption Methods

Drawing inspiration from both traditional Anishnaabe practices and modern innovations, we offer a range of consumption methods to cater to diverse needs. Whether you prefer the ritual of smoking, the discretion of vaping, the convenience of edibles, or the precision of tinctures, our products are crafted with care to provide a safe and enjoyable experience.

Proper Storage

Proper storage is essential for maintaining the potency, flavor, and freshness of your cannabis products. At Waabigwan Mashkiki, we understand the importance of storing cannabis in a way that preserves its quality and ensures a consistent experience with every use.

Culture.

In Anishnaabe culture, traditional storage practices were employed to preserve the medicinal properties of herbs and plants. We honor this tradition by recommending storage methods that protect cannabis from factors such as light, heat, and moisture, which can degrade its potency over time.

Child-proofing.

Safety is paramount when storing cannabis, especially in households with children or pets. We provide childproof storage solutions and guidelines to ensure that cannabis products are kept out of reach and securely stored, in line with Anishnaabe values of community and protection.

Community

In Anishnaabe culture, smoking tobacco is often accompanied by ceremonial rituals and prayers, symbolizing a connection to the natural world and the spirit realm. The smoke from burning tobacco is believed to carry prayers and intentions to the heavens, fostering a sense of community and collective healing.

Tradition

At Waabigwan Mashkiki, we honor the traditional act of smoking as a sacred ritual that brings people together in harmony with nature and the universe. Whether shared among friends or enjoyed in solitude, the act of smoking cannabis is a celebration of community, connection, and the timeless wisdom of indigenous cultures.

Sacred

As you partake in the ritual of smoking, take a moment to reflect on its deeper meaning and significance. Embrace the sacredness of the plant and its ability to facilitate healing, connection, and spiritual growth. With each inhale, let the smoke carry your intentions and prayers, uniting you with the collective energy of all who have come before you.

Ritual

Tobacco smoking within the Anishnaabe culture is a time honored ritual that holds deep cultural and spiritual significance. The act of passing a ceremonial pipe, or “peace pipe,” symbolizes unity, respect, and the sharing of knowledge and experiences. Taking inspiration from this practice, we encourage those who use our products to be mindful and embrace their cannabis experience with a similar mindset.
