This exam is designed to assess the student's ability to explain cannabis in the retail setting.

* 1. Please enter your full name.

* 2. Please enter you e-mail address.

* 3. There are primary and secondary compounds found in plants.

* 4. Primary compounds support the plant’s (          ) functions so that the organism can survive.

* 5. Examples of primary compounds are the by-products of photosynthesis, vascular tissue, and plant fibers.

* 6. Secondary compounds support the plant’s (          ) system. 

* 7. These secondary compounds exist to help protect the organism from pests, pathogens and predators. The secondary compounds in Cannabis are found in the (          ).

* 8. Trichomes exist all over the plant.

* 9. The (          ) found inside trichomes will be different based on where they are located on the plant.

* 10. There are three main classes of secondary compounds found in Cannabis.
These are (          ), (          ), and (          ).   
Select 3 correct answers in any order.

* 11. (          ) are the main class of compounds found in Cannabis. They bind to our (          ) receptors to activate signalling pathways that lead to changes in our physiology.

* 12. Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids found inside the plant matrix.

* 13. (          ) are cannabinoids that are made in the human body.

* 14. There are major and minor cannabinoids in the Cannabis matrix. (          ) and (          ) are examples of major cannabinoids.

* 15. THC and CBD are made from (          ), the ‘stem-cell’ cannabinoid, within the plant matrix.  (          ) can also differentiate into CBC, however it rarely does.  (          ) will most likely differentiate into THC, CBD or a combination of the two depending on the genotype of the plant.
Select ONE answer that fills in all the blanks.

* 16. THC is the cannabinoid found most abundantly in Cannabis. It is known for inducing the (          ) “high” experience, but also has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-proliferative properties.

* 17. CBD is the (          ) found in Cannabis. It is non-intoxicant and has been linked to many physiological properties, such as anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anxiolytic, anti-proliferative, and anti-spasmodic properties.

* 18. There are many minor cannabinoids with many properties of their own, such as THCV, CBDV, CBG, CBC, and CBN.  Of the aforementioned which has been shown to have anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, and appetite suppressant properties?

* 19. CBG has many physiological properties, such as anxiolytic, analgesic, muscle relaxation, anti-inflammatory, immune modulation.

* 20. CBC is the MOST common cannabinoid and it has anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic and anti-bacterial properties.

* 21. CBN is the (          ) byproduct of THC degradation. It has sedative properties and has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.

* 22. All cannabinoids start out as an acid. Cannabinoids are active in their acid form.

* 23. In order to become active compounds, cannabinoids must undergo a process called (          ).

* 24. When the compounds are heated or combusted, decarboxylation can occur.

* 25. (          ) are volatile compounds found in plants (and some insects) and are responsible for a plant’s (          ), but also correlate to certain physiological effects.

* 26. Terpenes are another class of secondary compounds found in Cannabis.

* 27. (          ) is the most common terpene found in Cannabis. It has an earthy, sweet aroma and is responsible for determining if the effect of a Cannabis cultivar will be more uplifting or relaxing

* 28. (          ) is the terpene found in the rinds of citrus fruits and it has mood elevating properties.

* 29. (          ), most commonly found in pine needles, can act as a bronchodilator and has reported anti-inflammatory properties.

* 30. (          ) is a terpene most commonly found in the ‘haze’ strains and it has been shown to have anti-proliferative and sedative properties.
However, (          ) can produce a rather stimulating effect if dosed correctly.

* 31. (          ), most commonly found in clove and black pepper, is a terpene that can also bind to the CB2 receptors. It has reported anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anxiolytic properties.

* 32. (           ), a terpene most commonly found in lavender, has sedative, anxiolytic, and analgesic properties.

* 33. (          ), commonly found in hops, has relaxing and appetite suppressant properties.

* 34. (          ), another terpene commonly found in the Cannabis matrix, acts as an astringent. It’s part of the reason why consuming Cannabis can cause dry mouth, dry eyes.

* 35. Flavonoids are another class of compounds found in the Cannabis matrix.

* 36. The class of compounds where you find flavanoids are (          ) compounds that can induce changes in physiology. They often act as antioxidants and have anti-proliferative properties.

* 37. There are two flavonoids specific to Cannabis. Those are (          ) and (          ). Much research needs to be done before we fully understand the role that flavonoids play in the Cannabis matrix.
