How is cannabis oil used?

Smoking/Vaporizing/Dabbing: Cannabis oil can be added to the flower you'd normally smoke in a dry glass piece to enhance the experience, or vaporized in a pen, "dab rig", or similar apparatus. When vaporized, the oil is heated to a temperature lower than its combustion level yet high enough to activate the cannabinoids; this is a good option for users who do not want to inhale smoke. The onset of the effects of smoking and vaporizing cannabis is immediate.

Edibles/Oral Consumption: Concentrated forms of cannabis can be ingested orally or infused into food products. Once eaten, the active ingredients metabolize in the body through the gastrointestinal system. There are dairy-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, nut-free, and GMO-free edibles available. When using this form of cannabis, the onset of the effects is typically delayed and lasts longer in the body. Edibles can have varying effects on each person. It is necessary to find a milligram dosage that works best for you. It is recommended to start off with a smaller dose and increase as your tolerance permits.

Topically: The topical use of cannabis can provide anti-inflammatory benefits when applied locally. It is also used to relieve arthritis, as well as joint and muscle pain. This form of use does not induce psychoactive effects.


What is the potency of the oil? 

Each Recreational (adult-use) batch of Hummingbird Cannabis Oil is tested and results are labeled. As a natural product, the cannabinoid content will very between batches. THC content generally ranges from 700-900 mg/gram of oil. Hummingbird Brand CO2 hash oil is never cut or mixed with anything that could diminish its potency. The end result is a product that is 100% pure, clean CO2 extracted cannabis oil. 


How do I determine the correct dosage?

Concentrated forms of cannabis are measured into milligrams (mg). For people with a low tolerance, a recommended starting dose is around 5-10mg. The nature of hash oil as a concentrated form of cannabis means its a stronger product that should be consumed conservatively while determining your personal tolerance. Five milligrams is the recommended beginner dose. Estimating the correct dosage will vary based on the cartridge in your specific vaporizer apparatus, but can be determined based on the number of "hits" obtained per cartridge. Simply divide the total milligrams of THC/CBD by the number of hits estimated available per cartridge. 


What is the best way to store hash oil?

Hummingbird Hash Oil should be stored in an air-tight container in a cool dark area for best results and longest shelf life.


What are the various forms of cannabis concentrates?

Cannabis concentrates are versatile and varied. There are many extraction methods (some utilize solvents and some don't) that produce concentrated cannabis in the form of oil, hash, wax, etc. These products can be smoked, vaporized or infused into food and topical products.


How is the cannabis grown that is used to make Hummingbird Brand Oil?

How does Lab Testing benefit me?
