  2. But i like the hiiiiigh
  3. I thought they already had these types of topical products already in dispensarys
  4. They do, I'm just delayed and found out about this now.
  5. There are methods to eat, absorb, and benefit from the ENTIRE RANGE, of cannabinoids... in what recreational users (and medicinal users who use it instead for the strong narcotic sensations) would consider their 'inactive forms'.

    They are simple, cold oils, and cold alcohol and glycerin tinctures.

    The difficulty is that, without heat to speed things up (heat would 'activate' a small, but still-excessive number of cannabinoids), it takes much, much longer to promote bioavailability.

    But once completed, you can consume and absorb five or more times the same amount that would, normally, blow you away... without feeling much, if anything at all. :) And medicinally speaking, you have nearly the full range of benefits!

    Some are actually unique to the inactive cannabinoids, just like there are some that are unique, or stronger, in those which have been activated.

    Inactive cannabinoids, have anti-spasmodic, anti-mutagenic/anti-cancer, analgesic and many other medicinal properties all of their own.. You just don't get the 'fun' side-effects. :D

    They can both prevent and provide relief from seizures, they can shrink and remove tumors, while facilitating and promoting healthy cellular growth, and they reduce pain and swelling, without making your extremities go 'numb', and without making you lose your coordination or hindering your ability to function normally.

    This may help.....

    An excerpt from the Concentrate tutorial....

    -Medical Grade: ~Cannabis Concentrate~ -


    When working and talking with various patients across the globe, it doesn't take long to learn (and to agree, for good reason) that

    Rick Simpson's hemp oil
    is valued highly by those 'in the know'.

    However, again with patients in the know, their biggest problem is that when it is made the 'traditional way', the potency

    and medicinal value that the resulting 'hemp oil' concentrate contains, is simply not very bioavailable.

    Meaning, that you pass most of it through your digestive tract, without absorption!


    Even though it has been stripped from the inert plant matter, the potency is still not easily absorbed by the body; it bounces off cellular

    walls, and continues down your tract going 'in one end, and right out the other,' without absorption!



    Cannabis glandular material is notoriously difficult for the body to absorb, even if it has been activated, and even when it
    is in the form of a sticky filtered concentrate, such as BHO, or Rick Simpson's Oil.

    It needs a 'vehicle' such as oil, glycerin, or even alcohol, which drastically improves cellular permeability, in order to provide
    you with the most absorption and the strongest sensations.


    The above 'water' could be brownie mix, it could be a beverage, or it could simply be the extra contents of your stomach
    after swallowing canna oil as it is, or inside of a capsule.

    When you process in oil gently, for long enough, a solution is formed in such a way when the solvent (in this case, oil) creates
    a persistent 'coat' on the broken down particles of the solute (cannabis glandular material)... once this occurs, you have
    a bioavailable 'solution'.

    In other words, we choose the edible solvents we do, not only because they are effective at breaking down cannabis
    glandular material, but because they help our bodies absorb it!

    The specific oil source that you choose, even directly dictates where in the body, your oil is absorbed.... this is why the
    quality of oil matters, as well.

    Unless you know for a fact that your liver does not function properly, and that it consistently over-metabolizes both
    food and medications, you should start with medium-chain containing oils such as coconut oil and palm kernal oil,
    or to a lesser extend, clarified butter.

    These oils deliver potency via the portal vein and liver, where a kind of chemical conversion takes place as the liver
    metabolizes the oil, causing the majority of the D9-THC to convert to the more powerful 11-OH-THC!!

    Choose the wrong oil, however, and you miss out on most, if not all of that conversion... which results in a much
    weaker, shorter-lived experience.


    Common kitchen cooking oils such as olive, corn, canola and soy should be avoided, due to their long-chain

    triglyceride content, UNLESS you are one of the very rare people with a liver that consistently over-metabolizes

    cannabinoids. In this case I would suggest using either olive, grapeseed (low temps only), or sesame oils, because long-chain

    cooking oils promote lymphatic absorption, meaning they almost entirely bypass the liver all together.


    Also, it is a little known fact that you can achieve a RANGE of effects and results, depending how well you activate

    your material, and depending how bioavailable your oil is.


    A single strain, is not limited to providing only a 'single type' of experience when it is eaten, like it generally provides when it

    is smoked.


    Edible cannabis can be more like vaporization, it can provide a range of experiences depending how you treat it, and the

    possibilities can be much greater than smoking, or even vaping!


    The below describes the 'range' of effects provided by different levels of activation, their benefits, and the desired outcome for the

    patients who choose them.

    Starting with:

    The least activation, producing a bioavailable solution of mostly carboxyl-intact acid components; Continuing right through to

    decarboxylation, and active cannabinoids and chemicals, free of their carboxyl groups; And finally finishing with

    degradation and the byproducts of degraded THC.

    1.) - Some patients require 'inactive' but bioavailable THCA, CBNA, CBDA and the other (to us) 'inactive acids', and in

    flowers those doses can range from .05g to as high as 4.5g, without 'doping up' or intoxicating a patient much, if at all even

    at the highest doses. These are cold tinctures, processed with material that is as fresh as possible, without decarbing.

    Cold, but most importantly bioavailable extractions (more than just 'juicing' plant matter is required!), provide powerful

    anti-cancer/mutagenic, anti-seizure/spasmodic benefits and they provide wonderful pain relief without reducing sensation

    of touch, they reduce swelling and inflammation even in lower doses, and especially at higher doses, and they provide especially

    wonderful relief for specifically for MS, Parkinson's, as well as for generally frail patients, and also for those suffering

    from seizures.

    Where it takes literally only a day or two to build up a tolerance to the highest of doses, and these oils and tinctures do

    not make a person feel overwhelmed, they are wonderful for treating patients who suffer from very powerful seizures,

    and similar attacks. Cannabis is incredibly non-toxic, an incredibly larger dose may be given to both provide relief, and

    to control the symptoms of more intense attacks, preventing further injury.

    These oils and tinctures are also somewhat mood elevating, but still, for the most part it's without that medicated feeling.

    You will have very good pain relief, without losing your sensation of touch.

    2.) - The first sensations (following a cold tincture that has had no activation) of an oil or tincture with only limited or partial activation

    and decent bioavailability, are primarily cerebral.

    In higher doses, these under-processed edibles can cause some mild anxiety and even paranoia in some patients; hyperventilating,

    'room-spins', racing-mind/thoughts, even vomiting, these are not uncommon side-effects of over-consumption of THC

    and trace amounts of THCA, when they are consumed in quantity, minus some of the important experience-regulating byproducts,

    of degradation.

    3.) - Then, some patients want to feel relaxed, nicely buzzed but still functional, and they need something that elevates their

    mood without gluing them to the couch. In which case edibles decarbed and processed in oil, as described in most of

    the tutorials here, are a great place to start.

    For those first starting out with edibles, I make sure their first few doses are about half of what they'd normally smoke in

    single session, or in a single day if they are heavy smokers. Once they know what to expect, the average dose most

    people are satisfied with (but at the sane time they are not too overwhelmed by), is right around the same amount used in a

    24 hour period. It's strong enough to either keep them from smoking quite as much in a day, or it actually out-right replaces

    their smoking for the day.

    So if you smoke a gram a day, you'll want to eat between a half gram, to a gram in a well-processed edible. I like to split

    my daily dose into two to three smaller doses. Sometimes I take them in quick succession, sometimes I spread them

    out, and finish with a 'sleeper'... Deciding what level of processing you need, can be the tricky part.

    4.) - The longer you heat in oil (to a certain extent, up to four or five hours), the more 'body intensive' the sensations

    will become, without a noticeable diminish in potency.

    At these levels of activation you have highly effective pain relief, that can sometimes be powerful enough to effect

    sensitivity to touch.... for instance if you have a low tolerance, you may notice that you become clumsy, or 'loose and wobbly'

    on well-activated oil, you may lose some sensation of touch.

    Four to six hours in oil at 220 f, or longer,

    and I'm either stuck to the couch, or falling fast asleep!

    5.) Any longer than a few hours at such temperatures will reduce THC content. But while 'perceived potency' diminishes, and

    the ratio of THC begins to fall, the material becomes overloaded with byproducts of degraded THC, primarily in the form of

    delta-8-THC and CBN, and when combined they are powerfully sedative.

    While their effects may seem weak during the time you can keep your eyes open, these oils and tinctures usually knock a patient

    out cold within 45 - 60 minutes, leaving them well rested upon waking the following morning (or afternoon)!

    ************************************************** ***********

    This tutorial provides SUPERIOR results, to traditionally extracted 'hemp oil', because;

    **It takes activation into consideration.

    ** It takes bioavailability and absorption into consideration, meaning much more of your valuable medicine is actually

    delivered throughout your body!

    ** It uses 100% FOOD GRADE solvents and materials!!! With lab testing becoming more common, we are discovering

    more and more, that even the best purging methods do not provide results that are as complete, or as clean, as we first assumed. [​IMG]

    For it to be a truly medical-grade product, you do not want traces of the harmful byproducts produced by non-food-grade

    solvents, to remain in your medicine.

    Hope this helps! :hello:
