WHAT IS

THC

Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol, THC, is an intoxicating cannabinoid commonly described as coinciding with feeling ‘high’ or ‘stoned’. THC is the most researched cannabinoid, and has 3 reported phases.

Some of these effects are anecdotal and depend on consumption methods and THC.

THCA

Sativas are generally more uplifting and stimulating, and often promote wakefulness. They generally provide a creative high and tend to provide mental energy.

As cannabis dries, THCa slowly converts to THC, heat and light accelerates this conversion through a process known as decarboxylation. Every high THC strain that has not yet been decarboxylated contains THCa, and these cannabinoid levels are particularly high as a live or freshly harvested plant.

DELTA-9 THC

Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is an intoxicating cannabinoid commonly described as feeling ‘high’ or ‘stoned’ with potential therapeutic value.

Research has focused on a handful of conditions that THC may help including muscle spasms and chronic pain, nausea and vomiting, epilepsy, appetite stimulation, cancer, and several psychiatric disorders such as PTSD, anxiety, and depression. To date, the quality of evidence supportive of cannabinoid treatment for these conditions are of moderate quality, however, all of these conclusions come with a strong limitation: studies on the therapeutic effectiveness of cannabis and its cannabinoids are sparse but are strengthening due to the increased support and legalization of cannabis.

CBN

SCannabinol, or CBN, is what tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) will break down into overtime. It is mildly intoxicating compared to THC.

CBN will induce little to no intoxicating effect, but is the strongest cannabinoid reported for promoting deep relaxation.

PLease consume responsibly

Individuals with no exposure or unknown tolerance to THC should start with a low dosage at home or some place comfortable.

After consuming, wait 2-3 hours to gauge how you feel and adjust if needed. Repeat these steps as often as required. Your tolerance will increase over time depending on how often and how much THC you consume. Once the individual has built up a cannabinoid tolerance they can easily metabolize THC and begin to experiment with more potent products.

START SLOW

with a LOW DOSAGE

For first time users, cannabis should be consumed slowly in low dosages. This is because everyone metabolizes THC differently depending on their genetic makeup and previous history with THC.

It is always suggested to start at a dosage of 5-10mg and adjust as needed. THC can be taken in a variety of forms including inhalation, oral, sublingual, topical, and rectal. Each method of administration has its own unique effects.

Consume cannabis responsibly and stop when you have had enough or achieved your desired effects.

General Dosing

Cannabis has a wide range of effects, which is influenced by product category; flower, tincture, capsule, concentrate, edible, etc. There are other features which are also important to keep in mind; route of administration (ROA), dosage, and duration.

Inhalation

When talking about cannabis the most popular ROA is smoking or vaporizing.This is often fast acting and strong in its intoxicating effects.

Inhalation: Smoke / Vaporize

Ingestion

Edibles are long lasting making them excellent candidates for ease of consumption and duration of effect. Start with a minimal dosage (5-10mg) and allow at least 1-2 hours for effects to fully appear.

ORAL: Eat / CONSUME

Sublingual

To apply something sublingually is to apply it under the tongue and allow blood vessels in the mouth to absorb the product. The longer the oil rests under the tongue, the stronger and quicker the effect.

Sublingual: Under the Tongue

Topical

This method does not offer any intoxicating effects but is excellent for localized relief. Topicals produce mild to no psychoactivity (it doesn’t get you high).

TOPICAL: Localized Relief

ONSET PEAK DURATION
1-5mins 10mins 1-6hrs

Suppositories

Suppositories avoid the G.I. tract and cannabinoid metabolism in the stomach and liver, allowing more cannabinoids to enter the bloodstream. They produce mild to no psychoactivity.

RECTAL: G.I. Absorbance

For first time users, cannabis should be consumed slowly in low dosages. This is because everyone metabolizes cannabinoids differently and expected duration may vary. Consume cannabis responsibly and stop when you have had enough or achieved your desired effects
