Frequently Asked Questions

I don't want to get "high," can I still use this medicine?

Yes! We specialize in formulating cannabis/hemp ratios that help people "thrive, but not get high." Reserach reveals that 4-10 times the amount of CBD eliminates the "high" from THC. Our 2mg THC + 10mg of CBD capsules are a great starting dose for patients that are new to cannabis/ hemp or sensative to their effects. Our precicion dosed 3mg THC only capsules are also a good low dose, non-impairing option as well. Patients find they can get relief throughout the day and still be present with our unique, consistently dosed formulations.

Is this like "Rick Simpson Oil" (RSO)?

Both ReLeaf Ratios and RSO are essential oil extracts of cannabis and hemp; however, ReLeaf Ratio's products contain a more comprehensive array of terpenes, cannabinoids, and flavonoids. ReLeaf Ratios preforms their extractions with ethanol, which is very safe for human consumpsion. Originally, Rick Simpson preformed his extractions using a solvent called naphtha, a highly volitile substance not meant for human consumpsion. Unlike RSO, our products are consistently dosed, so you can predict how this medicine will affect you. Also, our products also undergo finer filtration of the plant material, making them more palatable.

Why does full spectrum matter?

Why does full spectrum matter?
Cannabis Contains Over:​ 100 cannabinoids 150 Terepenes 20 Flavonoids​ Our full spectrum extract utilizes the "entourage effect" found in cannabis an hemp. Having the numerous cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids together produces a synergistic effect and provides you with the maximum therapeutic benefit. Some extracts, known as isolates, only contain one cannabinoid, THC or CBD. Isolates require higher milligram doses compared to full spectrum extracts and isolates are more likely to cause undesirable effects.

What doses/ratios are good for using during the day?

For patients that are new or sensative to the effects of THC and CBD, we recommend starting with the 2mg THC + 10mg CBD capsules or our 3mg THC only capsules. These doses and ratios are non-impairing and non-sedating and can help you find relief throughout the daytime hours. For patients with some tolerance to THC and CBD we recommmend 5mg THC + 15mg CBD or our 1:1 ratio 5mg THC + 5mg CBD capsules for daytime use. Some patients that are experienced cannabis users may use the 10mg THC + 50mg CBD or our 10mg THC + 10mg CBD comfortably during the day.

What capsules do you recommend to help with sleep?

For patients who have experience with THC and CBD, we recommend the 10mg THC + 50mg CBD or the 25mg THC + 25mg CBD capsules for sleep. For cannabis (THC) and hemp (CBD) sensative patients, we recommend our low dose balanced 5mg THC + 5mg CBD capsule. For patients looking for a non-impairing dose, we recommend taking two of our 12mg CBD + 2mg CBDa capsules.

What's the difference betweeen CBD (hemp) and THC (cannabis)

CBD and THC are two compounds found in the cannabis sativa plant. Legally, if the plant contains less than 0.3% THC it is considered hemp. If the plant contains more than 0.3%THC it is considered cannabis. One main differenence between CBD and THC is that CBD is not impairing, or doesn't make you "high."
