How to Take or Use Cannabis Olive Oil?
As far as cannabis oil is dosed (Cannabis Olive Oil), patients are advised to start 1-2 drops 1 time in the evening and then gradually increase (depending on the individual needs you can get 10, 30, 50, 100 and more drops per day). Clearly, only the physician can define what the personal dose is needed, knowing the concentration
The highly recommended route of administration is sublingual or transgenic intake, to bypass first-pass metabolism and to achieve high blood concentrations. Oral ingestion (eg on bread crumbs) can lead to lower results or delayed effect. For the conservation of therapeutic cannabis oil it is important to keep the vial as cool as possible at a temperature below 8 ° C. And shake before each use. Few days at room temperature do not affect the composition, but studies have shown that at 25 ° C the concentration of cannabinoids begins to decrease considerably.
Concentrated cannabis extracts, also known as Cannabis oils because of their sticky and viscous appearance, are becoming increasingly popular among self-medicating patients as a claimed cure for cancer. In general, preparation methods for Cannabis oils are relatively simple and do not require particular instruments. The most well-known example of such a product is called ‘Simpson oil’. The purpose of the extraction, often followed by a solvent evaporation step, is to make cannabinoids and other beneficial components such as terpenes available in a highly concentrated form. Although various preparation methods have been recommended for Cannabis oils, so far no studies have reported on the chemical composition of such products.
Recognizing the need for more information on quality and safety issues regarding Cannabis oils, an analytical study was performed to compare several generally used preparation methods on the basis of content of cannabinoids, terpenes, and residual solvent components. Solvents used include ethanol, naphtha, petroleum ether, and olive oil. The obtained results are not intended to support or deny the therapeutic properties of these products, but may be useful for better understanding the experiences of self-medicating patients through chemical analysis of this popular medicine.
