During the growing process, organic nutrients are used to feed the plants. After harvest, the cannabis is dried and pulverized. At this point, a process of decarboxylation is applied, heating the cannabis to convert all the THCA to THC and converting the CBDA to CBD. We also have one tincture that is not decarboxylated to maintain the THCA qualities which are not psychoactive.
The dried cannabis is kept in an alcohol base for 7 weeks. Stored in a dark cool place as it brews, every day the brewing tincture is shaken and energized. 190 proof food grade grain alcohol is used as a solvent to extract the cannabis oils. These are called cannabinoids: THC, CBD, CBN, CBT and CBC to name a few. There are over 85 different cannabinoids. We believe that these very small amounts of various cannabinoids are extremely valuable, both in their individual medicinal value as well as working together as a team, called the entourage effect. Hence, we produce a full plant extract containing all the components intact, providing a synergistic medicine.
The final product comes in 1 ounce bottles. The recommended dose varies for the medical condition, sensitivity, body chemistry and body weight. Often the dose is .5-3 ml. Dosage will vary between patients, due to individual sensitivity. Typically, one oz will contain 15-30 doses. One dose usually last 6-8 hours and initial effects will be felt after 45-60 minutes.
Finding the correct dose is called titration. Each person will have to experiment a bit to discover what dose works best for them. It is best to start off cautiously, taking about 1/2 of the anticipated dose. If you do not feel much, or any effect of the medication, increase the dose slightly the next scheduled time to take the medication. Keep increasing the dose over one week, keeping notes of the results.
When you get to the dose that feels too much, then lighten the dose a little bit. The tincture comes in bottles with an eye dropper dispenser, facilitating accurate measurement of the dosage. One to 3 full eye droppers is usually one dose. Some people take as little as 3 drops. Some take 5 ml. One large squeeze of the dropper will put about .5-1.0 ml in the dropper tube, which will make the dropper 1/2 – 3/4 full. One ml = 40 drops. 5 ml = 1 tsp. It is best to get a one ml syringe with measure marks.
For Epilepsy, we are seeing fairly good results with .5 mg CBD/lb/day broken into 3 doses with the ACDC olive oil based tincture.
Please consult with us for more specific dose recommendations for cancer and other medical conditions.
The tincture is taken orally. It is recommended to mix it with water, ginger tea or juice, just enough to dilute the 190 proof alcohol, so it does not burn the tongue. While it is best on an empty stomach, it can be taken after a meal also. If the THC is causing a problem with feeling intoxication, a little food in the stomach will reduce the psychoactive effects. Cannabis is a natural herb; it does not interfere with pharmaceutical medications and can be used in conjunction with other medicinal regimes.
