How to calculate how much CBD and THC is in your cannabis oil
When consuming cannabis oil, the key is to focus on the concentration of a product (mg/ml) to determine the correct dosage. It’s easiest to think of the mg/ml being comparable to the %THC or %CBD in dried flower products. To understand how much active ingredients are contained in a bottle, simply multiply the mg/ml by the volume, 20ml. Health Canada states: “It is proposed that for cannabis products intended for ingestion (including those comprised of dried cannabis, fresh cannabis or cannabis oil), a single unit would not contain more than 10 milligrams of THC.”*
The new equivalency factor for Peace Naturals’ cannabis oils better reflects the amount of dried flower we use to make each bottle of cannabis oil (5g), but it’s important to note that equivalency factors do not take into account the stronger effects associated with ingesting oil products. As a result, Peace Naturals strongly discourages patients from relying on equivalency factors for dosing decisions.
Our new 20ml bottles are designed with feedback from clients who wished for a smaller amount at a lower cost to maximize the number of varieties available to sample, and to optimize portability.
Peace’s new strain specific cannabis oils do not require any secondary refinement using harsh solvents like alcohol. This means that the natural balance of the plant is kept intact and that the cannabinoid and terpene ratios are proportional to our dried flower. This is important for the “entourage effect,” which describes the concept that all cannabis compounds work together synergistically to yield the desired therapeutic effect.
