grand opening, so he made his remarks quick before the ribbon cutting. Fisher said it was probably the excitement of a grand opening that drew so many people to the shopping center, one that has had a handful of vacancies in recent years. Green Valley Marketplace, a locally owned grocery chain, could help anchor the center and help to revitalize it, Fisher said. While he acknowledged there’s “lots of competition” in the Towson and Timonium areas — a Wegmans, a Trader Joe’s and other grocery stores nearby — Fisher said he thinks the variety offered at Green Valley Marketplace will draw customers.
Green Valley Marketplace will close its Timonium store on Feb. 1 after a little more than a year at the Padonia Village Shopping Center. The grocer is shrinking its footprint and moving out of Baltimore County, citing a "highly competitive grocery market" in a statement Tuesday. Green Valley's stores in Arnold, Pasadena and Elkridge will remain open and COO Rick Rodgers said the company is actively seeking sites for expansion in Howard and Anne Arundel counties. Here are the basics on using cannabis oil, including how to consume it, how much to take and the timing of effects. When trying cannabis oil for the first time or a new product, start low and go slow. There is no specific recommended dosage — you will have to determine the correct amount for you. Cannabis oil is a smoke-free option for consuming cannabis.
An extract of the plant is mixed with a neutral oil, such as olive oil, and packaged in a bottle with a dropper or dosing syringe. (The oil is also available in a spray format .) How Do I Use It? You should follow the instructions included with the product, but a drop is typically placed under your tongue to allow the oil to absorb sublingually. (Shake the bottle well before using to ensure the extract is evenly mixed with the oil.) How Much Should I Take? As with other cannabis products, there is no recommended dosage. Every consumer will experience individual effects , depending on many factors, including sex, age, frequency of use and how much is consumed. If you are new to cannabis or trying a product for the first time, Health Canada recommends starting with a low dose and gradually increasing it as the effects become apparent. Opt for a product with a mild THC level or higher amounts of CBD to counteract the psychoactive effects of the THC. The product packaging will state how much THC and CBD is in the oil. Cannabis oil comes with either a dropper or a dosing syringe (like a needle, without the metal end), which may be marked to show the amount of oil being dispensed, either in millilitres or cubic centimetres (cc), which are equivalent. When you ingest an oral cannabis product, your body processes it differently than when you inhale cannabis. One difference is how quickly it works: According to Health Canada, while smoking or vaporizing cannabis can produce an effect within minutes, it may take half an hour to four hours for the effects of cannabis oil to become apparent, depending on factors such as how much food is in your stomach and the dosage. Health Canada also reports that the effects of oil may last up to 24 hours. Homemade Medicated Edibles with Concentrated Cannabis Oil. If you enjoy good food and medicated edibles you can easily take any favorite recipes that contains a little cooking oil, (olive oil, vegetable oil, etc.) and make your own homemade medicated edibles. The easiest way to do this AND do it with a good degree of dose accuracy is to use concentrated cannabis oil (CCO, aka RSO, Buddha Tears, Phoenix Tears). There is little to no taste of cannabis in your edibles when you use this whole plant extract, especially if it’s a quality made oil. Whether you make your own cannabis oil or buy it from a dispensary, it should always be tested for potency to be sure that you’re getting an accurate dose. When you don’t know the percentages of cannabinoids going into your recipe you’re taking the chance of having edibles that are either too strong or not strong enough to be effective. This post is about how to use concentrated cannabis oil for cooking. CCO is usually sold in a plastic syringe, (without a needle), equaling one gram, (1 ml), of oil, . If you buy it in New Mexico it won’t be more than 70% THC* because of the cap we have on concentrates. Even if you are making your own CCO, using the syringe to store it will make dosing a breeze. Most whole plant concentrated cannabis oils sold in our state are right around the max of 70% THC so I will use that as my example: – 1 ml (1 gram) of CCO at 70% THC = 700mg of THC.
– each 0.1 line on the syringe will equal will equal one tenth of a ml, and in this case, 70ml/mg of THC. That’s why it’s so easy to dose with CCO in syringes. *(The cap on THC has been lifted in New Mexico now, but the math formula is the same…just drop in the new number). Take the number of servings in a given recipe and multiply by the number/amount of milligrams you want in each serving. For example; my recipe has 4 servings and I want each serving to have 25mg of THC, so 4 x 25 = 100mg concentrated cannabis oil for this recipe. That will be easy to measure out using the syringe. To get your oil evenly dispersed into the ingredients you take the cooking oil in the amount required for the recipe, and using a microwave or a hot water bath, warm it in a glass container. Next, use a plastic or silicone mixing utensil to blend the CCO into the cooking oil. The oil is now ready to add to your recipe when called for. This is so easy to do for each recipe that you don’t need to make a big batch of oil and store it.
However, if you want to have medicated cooking oil on hand for future stir frying and the like you can make up a batch. For example, 2 cups of oil that has been infused with 1ml syringe of 70% THC is as follows for measurements of medication. 2 cups = 700mg 1 cup = 350mg 1/2 cup = 175mg 1/4 cup = 87.5mg 1/8 cup (2 Tablespoons) = 43.75mg 1 Tablespoon = 21.875mg. With this method you will have an oil you can use in recipes, but you get what ever the amount of THC is in the amount of oil needed for the recipe.
