These three terms remain, by far, the most common for describing the attributes and effects of cannabis flower — and even products like edibles and vapes lay claim to the categories.

Tobacco smoking has for a long time been known to cause a whole host of diseases, including many types of cancer. 

Thanks to conclusive scientific studies and subsequent public health warnings, the number of tobacco smokers continues to drop every year. However, quitting isn’t easy thanks to nicotine’s strong addictive qualities. This means many ex-smokers turn to other sources of nicotine (like patches and gum) in order to satisfy their cravings.
