So we have to account for extraction efficiency during cannabis resin production, plus losses from decarboxylation, dilution, and packaging. It actually turns out that we need to use at least 15-20 grams of flowers to make one bottle of cannabis oil. Please note that although we aim for specific oil potencies sometimes diluting doesn’t go according to plan. With that being said, we allow a margin of error for all potency to be plus or minus 2 for all oils.

Our Cannabis Oils are fully-decarboxylated and ready to use without the need for further heating or baking. You can use the dropper on the bottle to ingest a known amount of cannabis oil (on its own or mixed with food) or place a few drops under the tongue. Sublingual administration of cannabis oil provides the most immediate effect for the user. If you prefer to ingest the cannabis oil, always keep in mind, that 'like dissolves like.' Therefore, foods with a higher fat content will help to distribute the cannabis oil effectively and help the body to absorb the active ingredients. Great ways to ingest the oil would include mixing with a glass of milk, adding to a smoothie or milkshake, or mixing with your favourite food. While you can cook with our cannabis oils, it is important to remember that we've done the hard work for you, and the oils are already decarboxylated. Further heating may cause degradation of the active cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD. Additionally, improper mixing of cannabis oil during cooking may result in under- or over-dosing, which can lead to undesirable effects (particularly with cannabis oils high in THC). Remember to keep the cooking/baking temperature below the carrier oil's smoke point, to preserve the integrity of the oil.
Cannabis oils are also quite potent, so use a little at a time, especially if you do not have much experience in ingesting cannabis. Whenever you ingest cannabis oils, just remember to "START LOW AND GO SLOW". Our cannabis oils are outfitted with easy-to-use eye droppers, which allow for consistent dosing - 1 mL of oil is equal to approximately 40 drops. For CANNA OIL 20 | 0, this equates to approximately 2 drops for every 1 mg of THC. Initially, Canna Farms will be offering cannabis oils in three different varieties: (1) High in THC, (2) High in CBD, and (3) Equal Parts (1:1) THC:CBD. We recommend talking to your Health Care Practitioner (HCP) about which oil is right for you. If you need any further clarification or information, one of our client service experts will be happy to help you. What are the effects of ingesting Cannabis Oil, as compared to smoking or vaporizing Dried Cannabis? When cannabis is smoked or vapourized, effects are generally immediate (0-15 minute onset) and short-lived (1-3 hours). This method of consumption may be preferable for clients with more acute conditions or disorders. On the other hand, ingestion of cannabis oil can take up to 2 hours (or longer) for onset of effects. The effects themselves may last for up to 10 hours, depending on the potency and amount (volume) of cannabis oil taken, and the mechanism of delivery (drops placed under the tongue vs. Clients with chronic disorders may prefer this method of consumption. Why are your Cannabis Oils low in potency, when compared with other cannabis extracts or concentrates? Many people may be concerned that our cannabis oils are low in THC, as compared with other cannabis extracts or concentrates (such as hash, shatter, or BHO). The most important thing to keep in mind is that it is not the potency (% or mg/mL THC) that is important, but rather the total dose in mg THC (amount of cannabis extract in mg × potency of cannabis extract % or mg/mL). The main thing to remember is that cannabis oil is made for ingestion rather than inhalation . Despite the fact that some cannabis extracts made for smoking/vapourizing can contain more than 50% THC by weight (versus 2-3% THC in our cannabis oils), the amount (grams or millilitres) of cannabis oil used by patients is much greater than their inhaled counterparts. Therefore a typical dose of THC (in mg) is quite comparable. For example, 1 mL of our Canna Oil 20|0 contains 20 mg of THC. The State of Colorado now limits the amount of THC in edibles to 10 mg per piece, so 1 mL of this oil would be equivalent to two (2) edibles. Similarly, a 0.5 gram "joint" of 10% THC contains 50 mg of THC, but more than half of this THC is lost during the combustion process, resulting in a dose of 20-25 mg THC. If you are inexperienced with Cannabis oils or tinctures, we suggest starting with a dose of 0-5 mg of THC, and waiting for at least 120 minutes (2 hours) before ingesting more. Sometimes it can take that long for the oil to take effect. Remember, everyone reacts differently to cannabis (especially when ingested), so it is important to always START LOW AND GO SLOW.
Although our Cannabis Oils are made for ingestion, some clients may opt to use them as topicals (applied externally to the skin). Talk to your HCP about which method is best for you. No, our Cannabis Oils are not intended for inhalation, only ingestion.
Clients may try using the oils topically, under the advice of their HCP. Product freshness is highly dependant on storage conditions such as temperature, and exposure to oxygen and light.
