At HOTN we carefully choose our edible partners, we focus on quality edibles made with love. Most of our selection is vegan friendly and when available made with organic ingredients.
Edible is defined as a cannabis-infused food. Many of us new to edibles fall victim to the same mistake, we eat too much. Edibles are a great choice for patients when consumed responsibly; they're potent and body-focused, meaning they're perfect for people who suffer from pain, nausea, or lack of appetite.
1) Wait, It Takes Time. After eating an edible, your body needs time to digest and metabolize the food before you feel the effects. The amount of time it takes depends on your metabolism, each person is different.
2.) Pay Attention To The Label and Dosage. The cannabis industry is in its infancy. Due to the plant’s federal illegality, cannabis products are not subjected to FDA regulations. This means two things: First, a lack of standard rules means a lack of consistency from one product to another. Secondly, no one is really checking what's going into the products you're consuming. Thats where HOTN comes in, we are here to guide you through your healing adventure, ask us anything!
A cannabis extract is any oil that concentrates the plant’s chemical compounds like THC and CBD. This is achieved through a variety of extraction processes and solvents, the most common being butane. Advancements in extraction technology have enabled the use of other solvents like carbon dioxide and pure hydrocarbons in a process that utilizes pressure in a safe closed-loop system. The end product is a highly potent oil of varying consistencies most popularly used for vaporization and dabbing.
Cannabis wax refers to the softer, opaque oils that have lost their transparency after extraction. Unlike those of transparent oils, the molecules of cannabis wax crystallize as a result of agitation. Light can’t travel through irregular molecular densities, and that refraction leaves us with a solid, non-transparent oil.
Just as transparent oils span the spectrum between shatter and sap, wax can also take on different consistencies based on heat, moisture, and the texture of the oil before it is purged (the process in which residual solvents are removed from the product).
Rosin refers to an extraction process that utilizes a combination of heat and pressure to nearly instantaneously squeeze resinous sap from your initial starting material. The term “rosin” originated as a method of making a product used to lubricate violin bows. With cannabis, this method is incredibly versatile in that it can either be used with flowers or to clean up hash and kief into a full-melt hash oil. The result is a translucent, sappy, and sometimes shatter-like product. If executed correctly, rosin can rival the flavor, potency, and yield of other solvent-based extraction products.
