This oil is not decarboxylated which preserves the natural CBD & CBDa ratio concentrations.
-Material is very light to the touch and is much less viscous than the 20% raw oil. The aroma is much more floral and the appearance is roughly that of a mix between a very light peach jam and honey. These 2 oils are by far my preferred CBD/CBDa preparations on the market. Having the natural ratios of CBD and CBDa in the oil make it far superior to any other product I have tried. These Endoca oils are absolutely the best anyone has to offer in my opinion thus far. I cannot recommend them enough; they have done wonders for me.
-The taste is really quite nice and very aromatically floral as mentioned previously. As with the 20% oil, you mustn’t overheat the oil and not all vaporizers are equal in terms of delivering a pleasurable experience from the flavor perspective. I find that using a nectar collector with the quartz or borosilicate tip (depending on model) heated under a low flame from a propane torch for an exact count of 8 seconds (counting 1-1 thousand, 2-1 thousand, 3-1 thousand, etc.) is the perfect time and method for providing the optimal flavor and efficacy of both these 20% & 30% raw oils.
Ease of use
-Usage is precisely that of the 20% oil. It may be consumed orally or used in any number of vaporizers normally used for concentrates. This 30% oil does not contain the waxy substance that is present in the 20% oil. This makes it a potential candidate for some styles of standard “510” e-cig vaporizers that have a reservoir that the oil can be put into easily. However, a small syringe or similar device may be required to get the oil into the reservoir depending on the design of the vape pen.
– Mostly administered by means of a concentrate vaporizer due to the increased efficiency attained by using via that route. Oral route was not as effective or efficient for my particular needs.
– Routes of Administration
Dosage—~150mg CBD/CBDa (1/2 gram of oil)
The oil flavor is quite a bit more aromatic and floral than the 20% variety. I highly advise making sure all of this oil is kept under the tongue in the front of the mouth for as long as you decide to let it absorb for.
I found it more beneficial and cost effective to use this with a vaporizer when dealing with my specific conditions. However, when using this for CBD’s apoptotic, antimetastatic, antiproliferative, and other anti-cancer properties my experience becomes moot as those effects are well documented by various studies and one cannot “feel” those effects.
Dosage—Several doses were tried over a period of several weeks to test for consistency. Very small drops of oil that range from approximately 3mm across to approximately 5mm across. When the larger quantities were placed in the vaporizer they often produced multiple doses that were used throughout the day. I am approaching the use of this strictly for medical purposes. The flavor is quite nice and more floral than the 20% oil.
Efficacy – This product has been consistently performing up to my expectations. I have seen an instant improvement in appetite, sleep, mood, sense of well-being, anxiety, depression, and overall quality of life just as I do with the 20% oil. However, this is quite a bit more sedating than the 20% oils and I best used in the evening as it can definitely aid in preparing for sleep. I have used other brands of CBD/Hemp oil on the market for quite some time now have spent WAY more per milligram than this product can be purchased for; and all of the other products came nowhere close to the performance and consistency of this product. I live in a location where cannabis use for medical conditions is stringently limited; therefore these types of products are my only legal way to have access to the medicine I require for the aforementioned benefits. That being said, if cannabis were to become legal tomorrow I would still continue to use this product. This provides me with all of the medicinal benefits I desire without the stronger sedation or other side effects that can sometimes be associated with cannabis use. I have been able to significantly reduce my intake of prescription anxiolytic medications thanks to Endoca’s phenomenal quality products. I am not suggesting that anyone stop the use of their medication and I insist that any medicinal programs you embark upon be the product of oversight and consultation from your physician. My endeavor has been completed with a great deal of research and careful personal planning with the necessary oversight required to make such a delicate transition.
I am now primarily using Endoca’s raw help oil for the treatment of my condition and use anxiety medication no more than a couple times per week at most if absolutely necessary; (i.e., if I am in a prolonged situation where I cannot make use of a vaporizer and/or if I ingest any food allergen cross contaminated foods as I am highly sensitive to gluten and dairy products)
20% vs. 30% vaporization comparison trial
This is a direct journal like comparison of the 20% and 30% oils used in an identical manner with all variables as identical as possible. This was conducted over several days using the Magic Flight Launch Box as the vaporizing device. The number of sessions as well as the number of hits required for each session is documented; as well as the heat setting the power dial on the MFLB power adapter was set at to produce the results obtained.
20% 1 measured amount in MFLB concentrate tray
1 hit – 1st session at 50% heat
2 hits- 2nd session at 50% heat
3 hits – 3rd session at 100% heat
2 hits – 4th session at 100% heat
1st – session very effective and good flavor
2nd –effective; but not quite as much as session 1 even with 2 hits
3rd – much less effective, much more heat needed to get oil to vaporize. Flavor is not desirable. Still effective; but 3 long hits required.
4th – only waxy material is left and no more vapor being produced. Almost no effect
Totals – The 20% oil yielded a total of 8 hits over 4 sessions
30% 1 identical measured amount in MFLB concentrate tray
1 hit – 1st session at 50% heat
1 hit – 2nd session at 50% heat
1 hit – 3rd session at 50% heat
1 hit – 4th session at 50% heat
1 hit – 5th session at 100% heat
2 hits – 6th session at 100% heat
1st – very strong sedation, I have found the 30% to be much better suited for night time use
2nd – flavor still nice like the 1st session
3rd – flavor no longer nice and floral, effect still strong
4th – flavor no longer nice and floral, effect still strong
5th – vapor uncomfortable due to heat and not as effective
6th – very effective with 2 hits; taste is terrible by now
Totals – The 30% oil yielded a total of 7 hits over 6 sessions
Value/Cost per milligram
-This oil comes in at 16.63 cents per milligram which is an excellent price. Especially when you consider the extra steps it must take to further refine this oil.
-This is Endoca…they set the bar in the CBD supplement market…enough said!
Would you buy it again? Why/why not?
I will definitely be purchasing this product again along with the 20% as well. Using the 20% alone is perfect for daytime use and the 30% is better suited to evenings such as after work or before bedtime. I have found an approximate 50/50 mix of both makes for a very nice and effective well rounded experience.
