"A Giving Package" to Benefit Project Noelle
As the holiday season approaches, and in the spirit of Uplifting Others, please join our Fi Sci family in supporting Project Noelle – an Ohio-based non-profit – to help the smallest victims of the opioid crisis in Ohio.
In the coming weeks, we will be releasing a holiday-themed "A Giving Package" to benefit Project Noelle, with $3 from each package being donated directly to Project Noelle; Project Noelle generally assists children with basic needs such as food, school supplies, and haircuts, but during the holiday season Project Noelle makes an effort to gather holiday gifts for children to provide a semblance of normalcy during the holiday seasons.
Our "A Giving Package" for Project Noelle will be available in: Tiger Champagne (Sativa) Rough Cut Half Ounces (14.15 grams)
"A Giving Package" will be available at participating dispensaries – be sure to call ahead to confirm availability. You can also use the Product Locator tool on our website to find the nearest availability as well as compare pricing among dispensaries when it becomes available (we will make an announcement on our social media pages).
Ohio's First True Full Spectrum,
Follow the Phoenix to our Solventless Sun Bites! Medicate with the premium edible experience – all the benefits of flower in an edible form.
Our Solventless Sun Bites are infused with Live Rosin making them a true Full Spectrum product. Live Rosin is a cleaner, high-quality oil that accurately represents the full terpene and cannabinoid profile of the cultivar used for extraction; we provide Ohio patients with the highest-fidelity cannabis medicine through this extraction method. The Solventless process allows for a processed product that effectively mimics the Full Spectrum benefits of the flower used as it does not require the separation of the terpenes and cannabinoids like other solvent-based processes.
Bringing the same great taste – with increased benefits at the same MG – our Solventless Sun Bites provide Ohio patients with an advanced edible option that is still made with high-quality ingredients. Now available in Bright Berry flavor in 110 mg THC Rich packages.
Full Spectrum | Vegan | Gluten-Free | All Natural Flavors
What Are the Benefits of Solventless, Full Spectrum Products?
What is Solventless Hash Oil?
Solventless Hash Oil, also known as SHO, refers to concentrated cannabis oil that has been extracted without the use of solvents such as butane, propane, or CO2 (carbon dioxide). The Solventless process results in a cleaner, high-quality concentrate that accurately contains the full terpene and cannabinoid profile of the strain used for extraction.
• Our SHO is a Live concentrate; “Live” concentrates are made from fresh frozen plant material – meaning the flower is not dried and/or cured before its terpene and cannabinoid content are extracted. This is typically categorized as a higher-quality product as more of the phytochemical content will have been preserved.
• We craft all of our current Solventless products (Live Rosin, SHO Vapes, Solventless Sun Bites) with Ice Water Bubble Hash in small batches; trichome heads are separated from the fresh, frozen plant material in ice water, dehydrated and then mechanically pressed to extract the resin oil from within the trichome heads.
Our Solventless process allows for a true Full Spectrum product that provides more accurate effects to the strain used compared to other Broad Spectrum products.
• Our Live Rosin concentrate is a specific version of Solventless Hash Oil, often in a more stabilized format.
• Our SHO Vape Cartridges are a more viscous version of our Live Rosin delivered in a convenient form factor i.e. our Phoenix Nest Platform.
Why Does Full Spectrum Matter?
True Full Spectrum products maintain the full profile of the cannabis plant – including cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds such as flavonoids – without compromising any aspect of the profile.
From a medical standpoint, this allows patients the full benefits of the entourage effect; the theory that all the various components of the whole-plant work synergistically to boost the effects of the active compounds. The cannabis plant consists of over 500 medicinal compounds that all work together to bring the cannabis plant’s unique therapeutic potential to life.
Full Spectrum processed products allows for extracts to live to their full potential from its flower form.
The term Full Spectrum is oft-used in cannabis markets, but not all Full Spectrum products are created equal – nor the same. Depending on the extraction and processing used, there can be an array of “Full Spectrum” claims that range in effectiveness.
A true Full Spectrum product maintains the full profile of the cannabis plant – including cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds such as flavonoids – without compromising any aspect of the profile; such as with all Firelands Scientific Solventless products.
Why Choose Full Spectrum?
From a medical standpoint, true Full Spectrum products allow patients the full benefits of the entourage effect; the theory that all the various components of the whole-plant work synergistically, boosting the effects of the active compounds. The cannabis plant consists of over 500 medicinal compounds that all work together to bring the cannabis plant’s fullest therapeutic potential to life.
Full Spectrum products offer unique therapeutic potential of each specific cannabis cultivar – allowing for extracts to live to their full potential from its flower form. Effectively, Full Spectrum should provide all of the benefits of the unique cultivar used, in different methods of administration that may be more convenient, portable, or provide different onsets of relief.
Full Spectrum vs. Broad Spectrum Effects
Full Spectrum cannabis products, in terms of medical relief, have anecdotally suggested increased effects compared to Broad Spectrum.
Full Spectrum products contain the entire profile of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other whole-plant compounds in their most natural form, rather than a Broad Spectrum processed product that has separated the cannabinoids and terpenes with solvents and then reintroduced these plant compounds later in the process.
Anecdotal evidence from more mature markets has shown Solventless Hash Oil-infused edibles can provide different effects in users – namely, a smoother, stronger, and longer onset without the uncomfortable peaks associated with other edible options.
