Rolling Trays & Stash Boxes: What To Look For

Joints, blunts, cones, whichever your preference, rolling can be a little messy. A little bit of cannabis will always fall over regardless of how much an expert roller you are. A rolling tray helps catch the debris, which could grow into a significant quantity over time. Rolling trays are the easiest, and most efficient, way to save your weed without doing anything. Just roll your weed over the tray and conserve the leftovers.

Rolling trays

A flat surface is probably the most significant feature of good rolling tray and is instrumental in creating a convenient space. The size of a tray is completely preference and depends on the quantity of weed you’re likely to make into a joint. If you’re just going to keep the tray at home, then It would help to have a bigger tray which can hold peripheral accessories like grinders, filters, etc. However, if you’re someone who travels, then your rolling tray takes on a different approach. Look for a good travel stash case that you can also roll on when it’s opened up, like an Otterbox Drybox.

As for the style of the tray, that totally depends on your taste. You can go for something totally inconspicuous like a stainless steel tray, a stylized Rastafarian designed tray, or one of our leather Primo trays. At the end of the day, you can roll your joint on any flat surface, for instance a table or a book. But a rolling tray helps you keep everything organized with an exclusive space to safeguard your joint.

Stash Boxes

In contrast to rolling trays, stash boxes are helpful in keeping all your cannabis related items safe and secure rather than just the cannabis itself. Anybody who frequently rolls up a joint would attest that there’s an art to it, and it involves more than just licking and tucking the paper. While you can keep the bigger items like bong, chillums, vapes and pipes on display or in the attic, smaller accessories like grinders, lighters, etc. are messy and dank. Preserve these things away from the outside world.

How To Roll The Perfect Weed Joint

BEGINNERS GUIDE

Rolling a joint should probably be one of the first things a cannabis connoisseur learns if they’re interested in smoking quality weed. Indeed, the last thing you’d want when you acquire some exquisite smelling cannabis is the inability to smoke it due to a lack of pipe, or a friend to help you roll it. Put simply, if you can’t roll it, you can’t smoke it. So in this article, we’ll teach you how to roll the perfect joint through a comprehensive step by step guide.

Quality Rolling Paper

First things first though; you need to pick up some decent rolling papers before you can even consider rolling a joint. Rolling papers come in a variety of types/materials but if you want to keep it purely cannabis, you can just opt for unbleached or hemp based. Once you master the technique of rolling a joint, you can start using thin papers which make it easier to taste your weed.

Break Down the Cannabis

You can’t roll a joint unless the weed is finely broken down into a good consistency. Sure, you can smoke cannabis as it is by gathering the weed up without any paper/pipe, but your lungs will go berserk and the high would barely be worth it. This is why you need to use rolling paper, grinders and pipes. They make weed smoking easier and efficient. While you can break down the weed by hand into a even consistency, a grinder is highly advisable since it reduces the possibilities of lumps/canoeing. Also, rolling sticky weed is easiest because it will compact better and not fall out before rolling.

Get the filter in

This is totally optional, and can be ignored if you prefer smoking raw. But many people prefer using filters to prevent loose weed from coagulating in their mouth, and averting finger burns. Just tear off a filter paper and fold one side into a W or some other shape without any gaps. Then roll the other end onto the W. One problem with Filters though, is that they add in a strong paper taste.

Get it on Paper

If there’s no weed on paper, there’s no weed at all. Getting the cannabis onto paper is crucial, you need to choose your style on how to do it. You can either go with a little pinner joint or aim for a fat cone (bat). Pinners are normal cigarette style joints which can be passed around, and hidden as well. While cones on the other hand pack a bigger hit and expand from the filter outwards holding more weed at the tip, giving a strong taste of the flower and allowing for a good smoke on the first few puffs. The choice is yours and ultimately comes down to how much pot you want to consume.

For Pinners, you need to sprinkle weed evenly throughout the joint whereas with bats, you’ll want to start off less at the filter end and increase the quantity as you go towards the cone. When you have enough weed in the joint, you just need to shape it using your fingers by rolling the non-sticky side up and down until its cylindrical.

The Tuck

The most crucial step that separates the sensei from the student. You need to master the tuck to become an expert roller. The key is to roll the papers together on bother sides using your thumb and index finger. Don’t worry about pushing the weed down, because rolling the paper together, up and down, will naturally compress the weed for “The Tuck.” The trick lies in tucking the paper at either end, before finishing off the middle.

Roll over and lick it off

Once the joint is tucked in, you need to roll it over all the way to the sticky end, and lick it to add moisture, until it’s all sealed up with no gaps. You can push the weed in using a pin or shoe lace to fill in gaps, but make sure there’s enough space for air to flow. You don’t want your joint to burn out.

Canoe

If your joint canoes, then it’s an indicator that there are gaps in the joint. But with practice, you’ll definitely get better at rolling joint and could even start experimenting with creative shapes. Trust us, Rolling the perfect joint is a vital skill in the arsenal of every smoker.

What To Look For When Finding The Best Cannabis Oil Canada

CANNABIS OIL CANADA

When it comes to Cannabis oil or Hash oil as it’s sometimes called, there is a lot more to consider than just what it looks like or how high the THC content is. From the method of the extraction to the Marijuana plant material that goes in it, each step of the process can have a significant impact on the quality of the final product. With so many new techniques coming to the market as regulations change and producers get more creative all around the world, our job is to know the safest, strongest and most effective ways to consume Cannabis recreationally or medicinally.

How was it grown?

Chemical Pesticides: Health is a very important aspect to any strain and you can’t it can’t be healthy with a bunch of toxic chemicals covering it. Using chemicals as a growing technique is generally frowned upon and a good dispensary will know this detail.

Flushing Prior To Harvest: Without proper pure water flushing before the harvest you will always get a subpar product. We ensure that all growers properly flush their plants prior to harvest for at least 2 weeks. This increases the THC potency and removes leftover nutrients from the flowering stage of growth. Our oils burn clean without extra carbon or nitrogen that can ruin the taste.

EXTRACTION METHODS

Butane hash oil extraction (BHO): BHO is one of the most common methods on extraction for cannabis at this time. Butane as you may be familiar with is a gas used in cigarette lighters. When under pressure the gas forms a liquid which when combined with cannabis plant material in closed loop system will leech cannabis oil out of the plant. Although this method is generally safe for experienced extraction artists it does run the risk of explosion and serious injury. Post extraction, the compound is released from the pressure chamber and goes through multiple purges to remove the Butane. Not all the butane can always be removed and some prefer not to use this method for Oral Cannabis products.

CO2 Supercritical extraction: CO2 extraction is achieved through the use of high pressure and very low temperatures. One of the more technical ways to extract cannabis oil it requires the use of special machinery to compress and turn Carbon Dioxide gas into its liquid form which is then pushed through the Cannabis Plant material removing the oils from it. This process has a number of benefits over traditional solvent extraction processes but the main one is that it doesn’t use a dangerous solvent. CO2, once it’s brought back to room temperature and pressure, just evaporates away on its own with no additional purges needed to purify the oil.

Heat Press (Rosin): One of the simplest ways to extract cannabis oil from Marijuana is the Rosin method. At its core all that is needed is heat and pressure. There are a number of ways you can prep the flowers (or not in the case of Live Rosin) to get more out of them but they are all basically the same. The final product requires no solvents so there are no health concerns with exposure to butane or other hydrocarbon compounds. With whole plant presses it also can appear with a slight greenish hue to the oil produced or if the trichomes are separated with a sieve it will come out more clear.

Ice Water Sieve (Hash): This method doesn’t so much produce oil but rather a resin crumble that some prefer over oil when it comes to smoking Cannabis. The whole plant material is placed in ice water that lowers the temperature of the plant and by extension the Trichomes. At this lower temperature the Trichomes become brittle and break away from the leaves and flowers. They then sink to the bottom of the mixture and through a series of different filters and sieves the final product comes out as a crumbly resin that when warmed slightly will start to liquefy.

OUR TOP WEED EXTRACT CHOICES

Rosin: The final product from the heat press extract method. This style of Cannabis oil has recently started gaining popularity due to its simplicity and lack of any type of solvent used in it. People like that it doesn’t use any chemicals, especially those who use Marijuana oil for medical reasons. Rosin can be consumed orally (Gel Capsules), mixed with honey to form a tincture and taken sublingually, or smoked on a dab setup or in a vape pen.

Live Resin: Getting its name from the fact that the plant material is still living when the extraction process is started, this extraction method typically uses the Ice Water method. Praised for its purity and lack of chemical solvents this is another extract that is popular with the medical marijuana community

Supercritical CO2 vapour pens: Next to Cannabis Oil gel caps, vape pens have to be one of the most discreet ways to enjoy cannabis products. Functioning basically the same as their nicotine cousins, vape pens are perfect for on the go as an alternative to smoking. Using a process referred to as atomization the vape pen has a coil that is heated to a temperature that turns the Hash Oil into a vapour containing tiny molecule sized droplets of the oil that is then inhaled. With no actual fire or burning of the oil these pens are touted as a safer alternative to smoking joints or bongs.

Tinctures: This oral consumption method for Marijuana oil is typically mixed with honey and administered via a plastic syringe type tool or an eyedropper. Great for adding to food or drink, some put it in their tea or coffee to start the day or you can just put a drop under your tongue for faster absorption.

Budder: Similar to live resin but made from cured flowers this wax like substance is high in THC and is easy to manage. The Ice Water method used in this process ensures no solvents are left in the product so it is a clean and healthy way to consume cannabis. Some prefer this product over oils as it is in a solid form and therefore much easier to transport.

The Strongest THC CBD Weed In Canada

THC CBD

Every patient has different needs and there is no one THC or CBD strain that fits all because cannabis effects are subjective. There are over 113 active cannabinoids within the Cannabis plant and with every day we’re learning more and more about them. Simply put, THC is the compound that is responsible for the “high” from Cannabis, it can have a number of effects on the human brain but generally it relieves stress, promotes a bit of a giggle and will increase your appetite. Additionally it has been said to help with chronic pain and anxiety with some users. CBD on the other hand is not psychoactive; it is known to act as an anti-inflammatory analgesic agent. Users have also reported its benefits with assisting with reducing seizures, with some going as far as to say it may have anti-cancer properties.

STRAIN ACCOUNTABILITY

In the past, especially in dispensaries in cities like Toronto and Vancouver, you don’t really get to know where your Cannabis is coming from. They might put a name on it or some resemblance of a brand but there is little or no recourse for the consumers if there is an issue of quality. So ask as many questions as possible and find out exactly where it came from.

CULTURE

Just because the legal status of Cannabis has changed does mean the principals that got us here should be forgotten. At Primo we want to continue that culture, its core is what defines our brand and our ethos. We believe that with legalization behind us it’s time to shine a positive light on the Cannabis industry and the culture around it, all while showing respect for the pioneers that paved the way for us.

ONLINE CANNABIS CANADA

In a country as big and sparsely populated such as Canada the online world is the perfect place to connect Cannabis enthusiasts to a community that shares their interests. It’s ideal for bringing them together in conversations on key topics on how the culture should mature in the coming years. We want to foster a collective voice across Canada from P.E.I to British Columbia and all the way up north to places like the Northwest Territories. With this collective we can grow a diverse like-minded community to promote a constructive, positive, fun, and motivated Cannabis community.

WHAT MAKES CANNABIS PRIMO?

Producing premium Cannabis is a process that’s varied and nuanced, there is a level of detail orientation that needs to be achieved in order to get to the Primo level. A true quad with frosty crystals covering the sticky spongy buds with a perfect trim and the smell that just fills the room almost instantly, that’s Primo. Getting to this level of growing requires true hands on experience, years and years of it. You can’t just read a book and learn this overnight. The best growers have been at this for decades already, refining their craft with every crop, improving the strain with every generation. It requires almost obsession like dedication to get to this level.

Strongest THC and CBD Strains

Way before you even think about planting you have to have the right strains. Gorilla Glue and OG Kush are popular for a reason, people know they work and they work well. If you’re looking for the Strongest THC and CBD strains online then you HAVE to trust the provider. That being said, we here at Primo have spent the last few years leading up to legalization cultivating growers and doing research on the best Indica and Sativa strains available in Canada.

Growers with decades of experience

Having a license to grow doesn’t equate to any actual knowledge, and likewise if they have a farming background it doesn’t mean they have any experience growing Cannabis. To grow the Strongest Cannabis you need to have a grower with not only decades of experience but also a love of growing. They’ll have beaming pride about their facility and the Weed they produce that’s infectious to be around.

The cure is where you turn good weed into a true quad

The number one priority for a Primo grower is quality, after that then you can start to scale up the yield but without that initial level of quality you might as well be growing in a ditch. A proper cure is essential to this; it dramatically increases the quality by converting leftover sugars in the flowers into THC compounds further upping the potency. We’ve worked with masters in this process and apply the lessons learned with them to what we accept from growers going forward.

THE LIST
THC:
Chem Dog – 32.1%
Karmasutra – 29.7%
Strawberry Banana – 28.4%
Kosher Kush – 26%
Life is Good OG – 27%

Best Weed Vape Pen Tips

With the Cannabis market exploding over the last couple years, innovative ways to consume cannabis have popped up. By far one of the most convenient and discreet methods are weed vape pens. Small, compact, and with no need to use a lighter, these pens are perfect for on the go. Whether you’re just walking down the street or at a festival it’s super easy to just take a hit or two of your pen and keep going. Here’s a list of what you need to know before buying a weed vape pen online. Here are the types of extraction methods for making the Cannabis oil used in weed vape pens

Butane hash oil extraction (BHO)

You’ll find the different extraction methods littered throughout our site because we want you to understand exactly what you’re getting. It is one of the most common methods on extraction for cannabis at this time. Butane as you may be familiar with is a gas used in cigarette lighters. When under pressure the gas forms a liquid which when combined with cannabis plant material in closed loop system will leech cannabis oil out of the plant. Although this method is generally safe for experienced extraction artists it does run the risk of explosion and serious injury. Post extraction, the compound is released from the pressure chamber and goes through multiple purges to remove the Butane. Not all the butane can always be removed and some prefer not to use this method for Oral Cannabis products.

CO2 Supercritical extraction

CO2 extraction is achieved through the use of high pressure and very low temperatures. One of the more technical ways to extract cannabis oil it requires the use of special machinery to compress and turn Carbon Dioxide gas into its liquid form which is then pushed through the Cannabis Plant material removing the oils from it. This process has a number of benefits over traditional solvent extraction processes but the main one is that it doesn’t use a dangerous solvent. CO2, once it’s brought back to room temperature and pressure, just evaporates away on its own with no additional purges needed to purify the oil.

QUALITY HARDWARE

What’s the point in buying a pen that won’t last you until your extract has run dry? The element in the pen or Coil as it’s called – the right temperature is key to ensure you actually heat the extract at the most efficient temperature. Too hot and the hit is too harsh and tastes burnt, too low and it will flood the chamber and send cannabis oil drop into your mouth.

The strength of the battery – not enough voltage can translate into lost product and ineffective delivery methods. Meaning you don’t get to enjoy all that your extract has to offer. Additionally a dead battery leaves you with extract stuck in a pen that is a pain to get out.

THE AMOUNT OF FLUID

Does it actually make a difference if the pen is too full? Yes, you need to make sure that your pen has the right amount of extract in it so that none goes to waste AND so that it burns efficiently.

DO REFILL CARTRIDGES WORK BETTER THAN SINGLE-USE PENS?

This really is up to personal preference. Single use pens are more convenient as you can just recycle them when they’re finished. They’re also generally smaller in profile so they are a bit more discreet and easy to carry around. Cartridges offer you the ability to swap in and out flavours or strains for whatever you’re feeling like. They also come with a rechargeable battery which is nice but some people don’t want to bother with keeping it charged.

ADDITIVES OR NOT?

Like nicotine vape pens a lot of producers will add in Glycerol to give the vape smoke a more smoke like appearance and feel. Glycerol is a safe additive to use but it’s not really necessary for the pen to work. Some users prefer the feel of weed vape pens with it in but it’s entirely up to you.

QUALITY WEED MAKES THE BEST OIL

You can have the best pen hardware on the market but without AAAA Cannabis going into your extraction setup you’re going to get a sub-par product in the end. Our open marketplace lets the community decide what rises to the top and allows independent licensed growers to showcase their small batch craft cannabis products, including some of the finest cannabis oils for weed vape pens on the market today.

ORGANIC PRACTICES

Health is a major concern when it comes to cannabis consumption and for weed vape pens it’s no different. With the wide range of natural pest controls available today from organic distributors there is no need for chemical pesticides. UV light filtering is also another natural way to control fungus within a growing facility so fungicides are unnecessary as well. Natural growing practices from our Licensed Independent Growers using small batches is what makes truly good cannabis shine and we want to make sure we support them in that process.

So, at Primo we are pinpoint focused on leading this process on our side of the continent. Giving Canadians the best solutions while educating them on the processes and practices that makes Cannabis great. We have some exciting products in the making, stay tuned to find the best licensed cannabis solutions in Canada.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

Growers are not marketing geniuses… actually those two personalities might be the furthest apart from each other in terms of the way they think and react. If these independent growers have to go toe-to-toe with some billion dollar licensed producer just to get their voice heard, they will be forced to spend outrageous amount of their hard earned money on marketing instead of on growing the best product and developing their skills. This will inevitably increase their overall operation cost which will in turn create a higher priced product to the end users, which is YOU. That’s not something we want for the industry, because it’s not like any other industry in the world. Here, the consumer proudly shares products they consider to be Primo – it’s a thing of pride.

Accountability

If a licensed producer produces a bad patch of pot or lies to its community about product details, which we have already seen, they should pay the price. With our open market approach, one bad apple doesn’t ruin it for all of the rest. No new community member has to sign up for another licensed producer and go through all the regulatory headaches once again – Primo will give you access to a wide variety of online licensed producers so that you can pick and choose your favourites while trying them all out.

Independent Growers

We as Canadians want to support the independent growers that have carried this industry on their backs for 50+ years. Just like our neighbourhood coffee shop and our craft brewery. We’re excited to learn more about the grower, their strains, their perfect curing techniques, and what makes them unique.

Online Cannabis Canada

The online world is a perfect way to connect cannabis enthusiasts to key topics on how the cannabis conversation should mature in the coming year. A collective voice from British Columbia to Prince Edward Island and up north to places like the Northwest Territories. Our goal is to grow a like-minded community that can promote a positive, fun, constructive, and motivated cannabis culture.

PRIMO WEED

There is a lot that goes into producing weed that reaches the quality we all desire – the killer buds that are produced far above all the rest. When you open a bag of Primo cannabis you know it’s killer; the pungent noise, the glittering white frosty trichomes, the spongy/gummy buds with a perfect trim, the white ash that comes from a dedicated flush… this is not a process a producer can learns overnight. A skilled grower could spend decades refining his craft to get to this point and s/he will continually find ways in which s/he can improve on the next growing cycle – it’s an obsessive passion. Here are some critical steps we look for when sourcing out the best weed on the planet.

THE STRENGTH OF THE STRAIN

THERE IS A REASON STAINS LIKE SOUR DIESEL & OG KUSH ARE FAMOUS. If you’re going to order weed online then you MUST trust the provider. This being said, we’ve done extensive research on the best Indica and Sativa flowers that are able to be freshly grown in Canada. Be wary of licensed producers who advertise strains that are not able to be grown in Canada. Order weed online with confidence.

EXPERIENCED GROWERS

Just because you have a licence to grow does not mean you actually know how to grow. It’s like comparing a disgusting restaurant to a world class restaurant. Both have a license to make and serve food but which one will you choose for your birthday dinner? Number 1, your grower needs to love growing. Number 2, your grower needs to have field experience. The pride they show when talking about their product they produce is a necessary sign. The grower will be excited about every step of the grow process. Not only that, they will be proud of their facility, their team, and their online licensed producer market.

THE CURE – WHERE GOOD BECOMES GREAT

It’s not all about quantity. In fact, a grower’s priorities should not have quantity of yield at the top. Quality is number one and should always be the number one priority. Perfecting the cure is the perfect example to demonstrate this. A proper cure dramatically improves the quality, the potency, and the preservation of the flower. Order your properly cured weed online with confidence.

Finding The Best Online Dispensary In Canada

There is a lot of choice out there today with online dispensaries so with so many choices how do you even begin to make a choice? What do you need to know before you pick one, what should you look out for? In this article we go into detail all things you need to take into consideration before making your decision.

ONLINE DISPENSARIES ARE ILLEGAL

The only companies that are legally allowed to sell Cannabis products in Canada are those that hold a license to do so. They differentiate themselves from the illegal market by referring to themselves as Licensed Producers or LP’s for short. In today’s market this may not seem like such a big deal to a lot of cannabis consumers but it is. Regulation is what keeps you safe from those who wish to exploit you for profit or from those who don’t care to produce a safe product. Your personal information is extremely vulnerable with an online dispensary and only licensed producers are approved to handle that info safely.

PRODUCT SELECTION

Having access to licensed producers matters more than most people think, especially when it comes to consistency. Street level dispensaries are known to engage in a bait and switch style approach to the products they stock. The majority is black market so there’s no accountability to consumers and product quality can vary significantly from week to week even though it’s branded as the same cannabis. We understand the every person has a wide range of taste for a number of different reasons.

Service

You want to know someone is there 24/7/ 365 days a year and that they care about your needs. Our open marketplace will enable growers do what they do best, grow.  These licensed producers know that the cannabis industry is not like any other out there. When you try out a new strain from a grower and it’s some of the best you’ve ever had, you’re going to share it with everyone you know. Our marketplace will enable this mutually beneficial environment for both consumers and licensed growers to foster a positive and respectful community.

PRODUCT QUALITY

One of probably the most important issues for cannabis consumers in today’s market is quality. Cannabis is itself a hardy plant but getting the full potential out of it is somewhat of an art form. On top of that Cannabis is being consumed, so health is an issue too, growing safe and clean Cannabis is an absolute for consumers today. Your dispensaries could be buying from growers that use pesticides such as Myclobutanil, Avermectin, and Etoxazole. These are things you DO NOT want in your body. We believe there is no need for chemical pesticides with today’s knowledge of natural pest controls. Every thing should be tested for chemical fertilizers, hormones, and fungicides. We’re cannabis users too and we don’t want these industrial chemicals in our bodies either.

INDEPENDENT GROWERS

We believe the best way to produce top quality cannabis is support the small batch independent growers. Small boutique batches get the attention to detail they need to make sure they are clean, safe and of the highest quality possible. Big market producers operate on massive quantity to satisfy their shareholders, often cutting corners to increase profits. This is exactly what we don’t want for our community and making sure the smaller independent growers always have a marketplace to showcase their amazing products is what Primo is all about.

Delivery Time

Deliver time is also really important for many different reasons.  Quickness guarantees satisfaction and freshness! Nobody likes stale weed that arrives two weeks late… especially if you depend on it as your source of medicine.

Your Security

The security of your personal data (your information) has been a huge failure in the whole industry in Canada. Dispensaries have absolutely no regard for this information while licensed producers don’t adhere to patient security. This is not something you want to leave up to chance. Many measures must be taken for sites security. At Primo we leave nothing up to chance. With our hyper-security infrastructure there are no opportunities for hackers to compromise your personal data and extremely sensitive information.

The Primo community has the final word.

At the end for the day our community will always wonder if a grower’s weed is Primo or not when ordering weed online from a market that houses online licensed producer. We’re a cannabis marketplace set to open its doors for the recreational market in 2018. Our desire is to serve Canada from coast to coast with the best weed on the planet. We’re continually building relationship with licensed producer in Ottawa, licensed producers in Toronto, licensed producers in Montreal, licensed producers in Alberta and licensed producers in British Columbia. Here at primo were excited about the future of cannabis and you can join us now. You will be rewarded as an early adopter and get VIP status for the first 12 months.

6 Alternatives To Smoking Cannabis

Alternatives


1. You can vaporize cannabis when it comes in the form of shatter, budder, hash oil, and hash. You can even vaporize dry herb although it is not the most efficient out of the above mentioned in terms of getting really, really stoned.

2. You can enjoy some delicious edibles like candies, cookies, pastries, and infused coconut oil. Just make sure you do your research so that you’re certain the edibles are measured consistently.

3. You can ingestible oils in the form of capsules and Rick Simpson Oil (AKA Phoenix Tears).

4. You can play with tinctures which are infused liquids that are easily dropped in the mouth. Tinctures can customize your high by mixing different ones to attain your desired effects.

5. Lather on some topicals in the form of balms and creams. Perfect for pain alleviation and inflamed muscles or when the topicals are high in THC they still get you buzzed.

6. The big trend right now is called “the dab” which works by flash vaporization in which concentrates are dropped on a heated water-pipe attachment and inhaled for intensely potent effects. You can dab shatter, budder, hash oil, and Supercritical concentrates.

Sure, we all love rolling up primo doobie but it’s nice to have different options. Might be because you have damaged lungs or because you just don’t get that amazing high you once used to. Even the stigmatized image of smoking cannabis might be the one thing holding you back. We are always researching and/or developing new ways for you to enjoy the flower and all of its wonderful medicinal effects.

How To Determine The Most Effective THC CBD Pills For You

CANNABIS OIL

Extracts come in a number of forms and are created through different processes of refining the cannabis plant to an essential oil. They can aid in a medical reasons such as anxiety, chronic pain, PTSD or increasing appetite, which is helpful to chemo patients.  Another benefit for THC and CBD pill products over smoking is a controlled dosage.  This is particularly of use to users of the medicinal cannabis that do not want to get overwhelmed by a high produced from THC.  These users are typically consuming cannabis on a daily schedule and want to lead normal lives; intoxication from THC can hinder their ability to do so.

FORMAT

Gel caps: Gel caps can contain a few different compounds but by far the most common is Cannabis Oil.  Pills containing an extracted cannabis essential oil are swallowed whole.  These pills can contain any number of strains and have a wide range of THC and CBD percentages.

Tinctures: Produced by an alcohol extraction method via ethanol the tincture is prepared by soaking the flowers in the alcohol, then removing the flowers and finally heating the compound to evaporate the remaining alcohol.  The resulting liquid is then bottled and administered via eyedropper orally or in some cases topically on the skin (although this has been observed as much less effective).

Sublingual drops: A cannabis extract is combined with honey and administered via an eye dropper or plastic syringe, placing a drop of the substance under the tongue.  It is then absorbed through the tissue in the mouth which is quicker than swallowing.

Phoenix Tears:  Also known as RSO or Rick Simpson oil is an extraction method using grain alcohol to product a thick molasses like oil that can be ingested in pills or vaporized.  It’s gained a lot of popularity with medical cannabis users with some going a far to claim that it has anti-cancer properties.

STRENGTH

When it comes to determining the most effective THC and CBD Pill product for you, strength is something that has to come into consideration.  As most people who are taking cannabis orally are usually doing so to help with certain medical symptoms, not everyone wants to get high. Knowing the strength of THC and CBD if your chosen product can be the difference between finding relief and being uncomfortably high when it’s not appropriate.  Always make sure your choice has clearly labeled THC and CBD percentages before you buy online.

RATIOS

Not everyone has the same needs so no one formula fits all when it comes to cannabis.  Here are a few of the most common ratios that are in use for oral Cannabis products:

High THC: THC has been known to help deal with a number of symptoms and the most widely sought after of those has been pain relief.  Oral consumption has been found to be a better method of using Cannabis for pain relief due to better control of dosage and a more controlled release of THC over a longer period than traditional smoking.  Additionally a high THC formula will produce a high that when taken in the right setting is a great relief of stress and stress related symptoms.

High CBD: High CBD formulas are for those who would prefer not to get high while treating their medical needs.  CBD is a non-psychoactive compound but is still a Cannabinoid and is said to relieve a number of symptoms similar to THC.

1:1 (equal parts THC to CBD): This formula is said to be the best of both word.  CBD works in concert with THC to moderate some of the more psychoactive effect it has to produce a more balanced experience.

There are over a 100 different Cannabinoid compounds in Cannabis and as time goes on we will discover more and understand the benefits of them, leading to new formulas with more specific uses for symptom relief.

EXTRACTION PROCESS

Heat Press (Rosin): One of the simplest ways to extract cannabis oil from Marijuana is the Rosin method.  At its core all that is needed is heat and pressure.  There are a number of ways you can prep the flowers (or not in the case of Live Rosin) to get more out of them but they are all basically the same.  The final product requires no solvents so there are no health concerns with exposure to butane or other hydrocarbon compounds and it also appears with a slight greenish hue to the oil produced.

Alcohol solvent extraction: This method uses ethanol or grain alcohol to leech oil the oils from the plant.  Typically plant material is soaked in the solvent for a time as the oils are soluble in alcohol.  Once the soaking is complete the plant material is removed and the mixture brought up in temperature to evaporate the alcohol leaving only cannabis oil behind.

Butane hash oil extraction (BHO): BHO is one of the most common methods on extraction for cannabis at this time.  Butane as you may be familiar with is a gas used in cigarette lighters.  When under pressure the gas forms a liquid which when combined with cannabis plant material in closed loop system will leech cannabis oil out of the plant.  Although this method is generally safe for experienced extraction artists it does run the risk of explosion and serious injury.  Post extraction, the compound is released from the pressure chamber and goes through multiple purges to remove the Butane.   Not all the butane can always be removed and some prefer not to use this method for Oral Cannabis products.

CO2 Supercritical extraction: CO2 extraction is achieved through the use of high pressure and very low temperatures.  One of the more technical ways to extract cannabis oil it requires the use of special machinery to compress and turn Carbon Dioxide gas into its liquid form which is then pushed through the Cannabis Plant material removing the oils from it.  This process has a number of benefits over traditional solvent extraction processes but the main one is that it doesn’t use a dangerous solvent.  CO2, once it’s brought back to room temperature and pressure just evaporates away on its own with no additional purges needed to purify the oil.
