Craftily made cannabis infographics take the boring out of numbers, statistics, and other areas of knowledge related to the use of marijuana. Some of these visual representations are true works of art!
Indica vs Sativa
Starting off strong with a stunning depiction of the theory behind Indica and Sativa cannabis strains. Few infographics (even in this compilation) are as dazzling as this one. If not for the crappy web resolution, I would seriously frame this creation and use it as wall decor.|
Was anyone besides me so focused on the creative design above that they spaced on reading the actual content?
Here is another take on the Indica-versus-Sativa-thing. Very different in style; less artistic perhaps but the typographic approach has its merits and sure does a great job at getting the message across.|
The last infographic tackling the key differences between Indica and Sativa shows something we all remember from school. A mixture of bold text, visual elements, and color coding can make a chunk of information so much easier to assimilate. And a whole lot more pleasant, too.|
Medical & Therapeutic Cannabis Infographics
At first glance, this infographic seems to be surfing the wave of a catchy “cure for cancer” headline. When reading further down, there is more to it than pure sensationalism. Sources for each scientific study are neatly cited.|
The next one is long, but well worth the read, especially if you’re not yet familiar with what exactly is CBD oil. There are a few things that stand out about this infographic, speaking to its quality:
The list of ailments CBD may help with does not include cancer. I find it to be a rather cheap shot when seeing claims CBD can cure cancer, because based on the latest research, not CBD but THC is most promising in that area.
Also very well done is the part showing CBD can be made from either hemp or marijuana. It’s annoying how often CBD is simply labeled as “the hemp cannabinoid”, versus THC being “the marijuana one”.
To top it off, the infographic even goes into the ambiguous legal status of CBD, the concept of full-spectrum, and different extraction methods.|
Step back in time with this very vintage looking cannabis infographic. It shows a bit of everything: methods of administration, the human body and endocannabinoid system, as well as some of the health problems marijuana can be useful for.|
A very well-drafted summary of the progression of medical marijuana in the United States with interesting tidbits about statistics, legislation, and revenue.|
Quirky and easily digestible, here are some quick facts about marijuana. However, as always it is crucial to take “facts” online with a big grain of salt. Marijuana legal in North Korea? Not exactly true.
As mentioned in the 10 worst countries in the world for cannabis use, it probably is not legal. And in a country like North Korea, you don’t really want to take a chance on a probability either. This article on business insider explains that the confusion may come from North Korea’s use of industrial hemp.|
All About Cannabinoids
While the presence of many different cannabinoids has been observed, it is only on a select few that science is able to give us more information.
Let’s call ’em ‘the classics’ – of which THC and CBD are most definitely the front-runners. But what do CBC, CBG, and CBN do? They’re a lot less notorious, so take a look below to brush up on all of their properties and effects.|
What a fantastic dive into the workings of THC. Although we all know there’s a difference between smoking or taking edibles, how and why exactly the body responds in such ways is another story. Well done, Sapiensoup Blog!|
Speaking of THC, the following one is about some of the negative effects and downsides of marijuana use, which may or may not weigh up to the positive ones depending on your personal experience. The graphic is well-made and cites proper sourcing for the claims.|
Last but not least in the cannabinoid-focused ones, a beautiful image depicting the effects of ten cannabinoids on the human body.|
Smoking & Vaporizing
It’s almost nicer to just look at than to really read, but if you dig in, this colorful infographic contains lots of interesting key details on the controversial topic of smoking versus vaping.|
This graphic is basically a plea for vaporizing weed versus smoking it. A lot of stuff is happening with the flavor, the terpenes, and the cannabinoids – and different stuff at that, depending on the temperature. Good information to be in the know about as a cannabis user, vapers and smokers alike.|
Hemp Cannabis Infographics
Nicely done, to include a historical overview as well as the main uses of the hemp plant, broken down as per the different parts of the plant.|
The plant silhouette and overall design of this hemp infographic are really neat. It has an intuitive layout and the information is well-organized.|
The background and colors here give the image an eco-friendly vibe as well as one that is a tad retro. While the subject is the same as the next one up, this infographic contains a lot more information.|
Black and white never fails to ‘work’, and this elegant infographic depicts the many uses of the hemp plant and its fiber.|
In Conclusion, a Key Piece of Marijuana’s History
To conclude this curated selection of cannabis infographics, a magnificent timeline with the history of cannabis/marijuana in America.|
As for the main takeaway, how about the point dated 1937: “The marijuana tax law was signed into effect without any open debate, scientific inquiry or political objection.”
