Jade Nectar is a California-based producer that focuses on liquified “cannabis juice.” Says the company, “There is no cannabis formula that is more ‘whole plant’ than actually consuming our Jade Nectar unfiltered cannabis juice puree that is made from pureed whole cannabis leaves and flowers.”
Reviewed here is Jade Nectar’s Golden Ratio product, a 2:1 CBD:THC oil. Packaged in the familiar 1-ounce vial, Golden Ratio packs in 250mg of CBD and 125mg of THC, made from its eponymous proprietary strain of cannabis. (Details on the strain, aside from the CBD/THC breakdown, are not provided.)
“Cannabis juice” is similar to other sublingual/tincture products, except that the deep brown oil is extremely pungent in flavor and aroma. It smells like pureed cannabis because that’s what it is, so users uninterested in a fairly dank experience — held on the tongue for as long as possible — may want to look elsewhere. It does linger on the palate for quite a while, even after you’ve swallowed.
There are 60 half-dropper servings in each vial (the company says to use from 1/2 a dropper to 3 full droppers per session), so a vial of Golden Ratio goes a long way. That half-dropper will get you just over 4mg of CBD and 2mg of THC, which won’t cause any psychoactivity for most users. I find that a full dropper creates a nice calm and relieves anxiety effectively, with virtually no psychoactivity at all. If you desire a high, up the dosage.
At $35 a vial, Jade Nectar offers a good value, especially on the CBD front. My hunch, however, is that the aggressive flavor will be what really makes or breaks it for users.
