THC and CBD Content
Each order of MedReleaf cannabis oil capsules counts as 5 grams of your 30-day allowance as prescribed by your physician.
As part of our regular product review, we updated the equivalency factor from 1g to 5g to more accurately reflect the dried cannabis equivalency of our oil products. Health Canada approved this update. For more information on how this change might affect you, please call or email our Patient Care Team.

Below are recommendations for first time-users. Always remember to follow the directions of your physician, and to “start low and be patient”.
- It will likely take 45 – 90 minutes before you begin to feel the effects*
- The peak effects of ingested cannabis are often not achieved for up to 2 hours
- Effects can last for up to 6–8 hours
A good starting dose for cannabis oil capsules is one capsule, unless otherwise instructed by your physician. Please refer to the THC and CBD chart above for milligrams of THC and CBD per capsule. Be sure to wait at least 2-3 hours after ingesting the capsule before assessing the effects of the medication.
It is recommended that extract users keep a Dosing Journal to record the amounts and effects of each dose. Sample Journal pages can be downloaded here.
