There is a huge difference between hash capsules, other edibles, and Cannacaps capsules. Cannacap capsules uses an extensive, time consuming process to make a potent, easily absorbable medicine. One very important difference is the specially formulated blend of lipids that allows your body to absorb the THC and other cannibinoids faster than an oil-based hash pill. Your body absorbs the lipids as a carbohydrate and therefore absorbs them first.
We make our Cannacap capsules with top grade hash, not every producer chooses to do so. The process of producing a batch of 24 caps takes about 3 hours and all our capsules are manufactured with the utmost standards by a certified pharmacy technician.
Next is Decaboxylation. Marijuana produces THCA, an acid with a carboxylic group attached. In its acid form, THC is not very active. It is only when the carboxyl group is removed that THC becomes psychoactive.
The THC connects itself to fat cells. If you’ve ever taken an edible or hash capsule then you know it takes longer to be absorbed. Our process turns THC into a carbohydrate, which your body burns and processes upon consumption. Taking Cannacap capsules is a healthier way to ingest the medicine than smoking.
Some important and helpful hints:
Determining an optimal dosage schedule for Cannacap Capsules requires a short period of adjustment. It is recommended that the adjustment periods be on a weekend, or day(s) off work. The effects of ingesting THC can differ considerably from the effects of smoking THC; the onset of effects is slower, and the duration is also noticeably longer.
The onset of the effects can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on one’s metabolism and stomach content.
To determine your “personal onset-time”, swallow a Cannacap Capsule 30-60 minutes before you would normally smoke (if you smoke), and wait at least 2
hours after ingestion before judging the strength.
Once your “personal onset-time” has been determined, you can calculate when to take another capsule. If you desire a continuous effect, take another capsule before the effects of the previous capsule have worn off.
Treatment should begin with the ‘regular strength Silver’ formula, in order to gauge your own personal reaction to the capsules. If the effects of the ‘regular strength Silver’ formula are not effective after several hours, try taking 2 ‘regular strength’ capsules or try the ‘next level strength’ (Gold) formula.
Effects can last from 4-8 hours, depending on: effect desired, personal metabolism, capsule strength.
Note: The effects of Cannacaps Capsules may be stronger than with inhaled (smoked) THC, therefore caution is recommended, especially when getting adjusted to using the capsules.
Cautions to consider
It is recommended that Cannacaps Capsules not be taken on an empty stomach.
Do not drive, operate heavy machinery, etc, while taking Cannacap Capsules until you are familiar with their effects.
Due to the duration of the effects, taking Cannacap Capsules 3-4 times daily, space 6-8 hours apart should be sufficient for those who require medicine 24 hours a day. If early morning use is needed, we recommend taking one
immediately before going to sleep, as the desired effect will be had upon waking.
