Rideau (CBD 25:1) Cannabis Oil from Aphria is a high CBD oil. On average, Aphria's 25:1 CBD Cannabis oil has a terpene profile that indexes higher for Caryophyllene. Aphria's cannabis oil products use MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) oil as the carrier substance and are produced using CO2 extraction methods that preserve purity and ensure safety. The oil comes activated (decarboxylated) and is suitable for ingestion directly under the tongue and for use in recipes.

How to take CBD Cannabis Oil
Easy to incorporate with food or ingest on its own, Aphria Rideau CBD Cannabis Oil is made using CO2 extraction methods with MCT oil as the carrier. Each bottle of Aphria's Rideau (CBD 25:1) Cannabis Oil comes with an oral syringe marked with dose amounts in millilitres (ml).
To use, you can simply put the measured amount under your tongue and let the oil rest there for 30-60 seconds before swallowing. The medicine will then pass through the intestinal tract like an edible. Oral absorption can take anywhere from 15 minutes to over an hour for onset, but it remains in the bloodstream like an edible, six to nine hours. Alternatively, Aphria Cannabis Oils are easily added to coffee or tea, smoothies, salad dressings, or other fat-rich foods. When consumed with food it generally takes one to two hours for CBD to be metabolized, but then the cannabinoid stays within the body for about six to nine hours.
Why is there THC in this product?
Sometimes, but not always, high-CBD cannabis medicine can include a small amount of THC, like this Aphria Rideau CBD Cannabis Oil. The entourage effect is a theory that suggests cannabis works better as a whole with all its cannabinoids intact, rather than just one chemical compound in isolation. In other words, CBD works better when THC is present, in addition to other chemical compounds such as terpenes and even flavonoids. Interestingly, CBD can also block THC at the receptor site, inhibiting feelings of euphoria or a “high”. For this reason, a small ratio of THC is often well tolerated by patients without uncomfortable side effects.
Does CBD have side-effects?
Although considered non-intoxicating, CBD does affect the body and brain. Side effects noted with high-CBD cannabis can include nausea, fatigue, and irritability. It can also interact with some medications, particularly blood thinners and also some antidepressants and pain medications. Always consult with a healthcare provider before starting any cannabis medicine, including CBD Cannabis Oil.
What is the right CBD Cannabis Oil dosage?
The right amount of CBD for any given patient is for a healthcare practitioner to determine because factors such as the patient’s age, gender, health history, and current medications all must be considered. It’s also worth noting that all cannabis medicine has a biphasic or bidirectional effect, which means a high dose isn’t necessarily better at easing symptoms than a low dose. In fact, a higher dose of medical cannabis may even have the opposite effect of a lower dose. If you have a health concern you think could be managed with CBD, your best route for success is to make an appointment with a cannabis-trained healthcare provider.
