Edible Canna Oil
Edible Canna Oil – This is a very close cousin to Phoenix Tears and will have similar medical effects. Made with Almond Oil, Walnut Oil and Vacuum purged BHO. 30ml is approximate 12 doses though this can vary depending on patients weight and tolerance. This stuff is SUPER STRONG. I cannot stress enough how high you can get off this stuff. PLEASE be careful and start low with your dosage until you get used to it. It can take about 2-3 hours before you feel the full effects, so keep that in mind! This stuff is GREAT for making into edibles of all types! Most professional dispensaries use an oil just like this to make their doses more reliable and predictable. You can either eat it straight, or add it to food or cook it into meals or baked goods. It is already “de-carbed” or “activated,” so it is totally fine to consume right out of the bottle.
Cannabis oil is a delivery system. You find it in small bottles with eyedroppers for administration. For those with concerns about smoking, about the complicated administration of dabs, and about the delayed reaction in edibles, and about the needs of pediatric patients, oils present a convenient, tested, and discrete cannabis delivery system.
- Producers use solvents to extract oils from cannabis flowers. Oil is the sticky stuff left after the plant, sticks, and leaves are flushed away.
- Oils contain high concentrations of cannabis’ compounds: THC and/or CBD. Some hold as much as 80% THC. Others are almost pure CBD.
- Users take oil sublingually because the tissues under the tongue transmit the active compounds quickly to the blood system.
- Oils can be used in recipes or manufactured at edibles.
- Patients with asthma, arthritis, cancer, chronic pain, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, heart disease, and multiple sclerosis report symptom relief when using cannabis oil. And, most states permit use for recalcitrant epilepsy in children.
- Users can prepare their own oils at home or purchase online or in dispensaries where legal. But, buyers should confirm information on labels.
The potency in cannabis oils can be a benefit or a problem, so you should watch the quality and quantity.
Home growers will create cannabis tinctures using a high-proof ethanol as a solvent to dissolve the plant material. Vinegar and glycerol also create tinctures but not as effectively. The solvent absorbs the chemicals: cannabinoids, oils, terpenes, and trichomes.
Where oils are left after the solvent is washed away, the tincture is a liquid in which the cannabis effects are suspended. Like cannabis oils, the tincture may be THC dominant, CBD dominant, or balanced.
Like oils, tinctures are administered under the tongue. The convenience benefits those may be too young, old, or sick to consume cannabis in other ways. You can add the tincture to recipes and drinks. Frequent recreational users like the immediate and potent effects.
Edibles come in different forms: brownies, candies, cookies, and drinks. Processed commercially, edibles have a prominent display in recreational and medical dispensaries. But, thousands of recipes flood the internet for those who like to prepare their own.
Edibles are delicious, discrete, and convenient ways to consume cannabis throughout the day to maintain recreational or medical benefits.
Edibles do present a “problem.” Because they are tasty, they tempt users to consume more than they should in terms of quantity and frequency. And, because they require digestion, they are slower to show effects. Both issues can lead to overdosing.
Given that warning, users and patients find edibles their cannabis of choice.
