METHODS OF DELIVERY
Synchronicity Holistic is dedicated to carrying a wide variety of medical grade cannabis products. Below is a sample of the various methods of delivery and information pertaining to dosage and effect.
The Various Forms of Cannabis
Baked Goods, Mints, Chocolates, and Gummies
Edible cannabinoids are processed differently than those that are inhaled. When CBD or THC is ingested, cannabinoids enter the bloodstream through the stomach and liver. This means that potency is increased, the onset of effects is delayed, and that the effects are felt over a longer period of time.
Tea, Sparkling Water, and Non-alcoholic Beer
Cannabis Infused beverages are similar to other edibles in the sense that the cannabinoids are processed through the stomach and liver. Be mindful of how many servings there are per can/bottle and remember that ingesting cannabinoids means it takes longer to feel the full effect compared to smoking.
CBD & THC Strains
Flower refers to the smokeable part of the cannabis plant that has gone through various processes. It continues to be a popular choice for its versatility, offering numerous methods of consumption, such as being smoked using a pipe or bong, or by rolling it into a joint or blunt. Unlike edibles, smoking weed has rapid onset, meaning you’ll feel its effects almost instantaneously.
Taking smoking to the next level
Concentrates are products made from the cannabis plant that have been processed to keep only the most desirable plant compounds, cannabinoids and terpenes. The extraction process removes excess plant materials and yields a greater proportion of cannabinoids and terpenes compared to flower. They come in a variety of textures and can be consumed using several different methods.
Tincture dosages are easy to self-titrate, or measure. Start with 1mL of your finished tincture and put it under your tongue. If you’re happy with the effects, you’re done. Otherwise, try 2mL the next day and so on until you find the volume you’re happy with. Consumers usually put the product under their tongue, although some prefer to mix it into their favorite food or drink.
Quick and easy digestible method
Similar to tinctures but in pill form, patients often opt for capsules because capsules offer an easier and more convenient method of ingesting medication. Capsules provide patients with exact dosing information, which allows them to plan for consistent effects. Capsules range from single cannabinoid to full-spectrum or strain-specific oil, providing consumers with myriad cannabis products to suit their needs. These often function as safer alternatives to vaping or smoking cannabis.
LOTIONS, BALMS & TOPICALS
Body relief without psychoactive effects
Topicals are cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation. Because they’re non-intoxicating, topicals are often chosen by patients who want the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the cerebral euphoria associated with other delivery methods. Other transdermal innovations are fast arriving in the cannabis market, including long-lasting patches and tingly lubricants for patients and recreational consumers alike.
Quick and easy combustible method
The leading benefit for vaping is that it’s a healthier alternative to smoking flower, as vapor doesn’t release the tar and carcinogens created during combustion. Instead, vaporization entails a slightly more complex process that creates a phase transition from liquid to vapor. Additionally, portable vaporizers allow for easy and discreet use as the cannabis vapor creates a less potent aroma. Portable vaporizers are easy to use and fit in your pocket. Like flower and concentrates, the onset time is rapid.
