Cannabis Review: Jean Guy Oil by KKE

My Favourite Flower In Oil Form

I previously reviewed Sensi Star Oil by KKE (Khalifa Kush Enterprises) and today we’re taking a look at their Jean Guy Oil. This uses flower from 7ACRES and is extracted at MediPharms Labs in Barrie, Ontario, Canada using CO2 extraction with MCT being the carrier oil.

 

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

The information listed on the label showed 24.6mg of THC per mL and 1.46mg of CBD per mL, and in my personal view this is a high THC product. 

Just like the other KKE oil, this brand keeps the terpenes in the bottle, unlike most of the competitors by using a multi-phased approach using CO2 extraction for the highest quality output. As for what the terpene values are is anyone’s guess as they’re not listed, but the flower is dominant in myrcene and I would expect the same here. A few other notable terpenes are terpinolene, ocimene, pinene and limonene. This data was pulled from PureSinse’s medical website.

 

Price and Shipping

One 30mL bottle was purchased off the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) at the cost of $102.75 taxes included, which is about $3.43 per mL for 24.6 mg of THC (just under 14 cents per mg of THC). At the time I was checking other markets and saw British Columbia was selling this for $78.74 with taxes, much lower than Ontario. The cost of shipping was $5 flat plus HST (13%) with Canada Post. No free options existed as of this writing and delivery took three business days to arrive.

 

Smell and Appearance

Sweet and earthy would be the easiest way to describe the smell and taste. This oil had a straw yellow colour and was lighter in colour than the Sensi Star. Included in the packaging was a stopper to prevent the oil from spilling out easily and a perfectly labelled dosing dropper. I found measuring the dose was easy to use. 

Dosing and Subjective Effects

Over the course of about two weeks I tried different doses from 0.75mL (18.45mg) upwards to 1.5mL (36.9mg) in one sitting, and unlike some other oils on the market that would require me to consume more than double for the same amount. This is important as taking some oils in large volumes to obtain more THC may cause gastrointestinal distress for some. Thankfully I didn’t have those issues with this oil.

Effects felt at the lowest dose (0.75mL) were feelings of creativity, being mindful and at times a daydreamer but still able to converse with others. I felt this oil would best be used during the daytime as it may keep you up at night, however when I consumed the highest dose (1.5mL) I was restless and wanted to nap it off. Pain relief is the main reason why I use cannabis and unfortunately this seemed geared more to improve mood and enhance creativity, much like in flower form.

The effects took about 90 minutes to two hours to fully kick in each time, this didn’t matter if I held it under my tongue for a few minutes or swallowing it all at once. The total duration of effects lasted about four to five hours, with effects weaning off around the three hour mark. I do advise to eat something with the oil as this would lessen the chance of gastro issues and also increases the bioavailability when taken with some food that has fats. One of my peers on Twitter uses peanut butter every time he uses cannabis oil as the fat in butter helps the absorption. 

Keep in mind that some people may require higher or lower dosing. Always go low and slow to determine an optimal dose to ensure a good time. 

 

End Thought

At the end of the day I prefer to vape as the onset is quicker, but overall I found this to be a great oil to consume during the day, I just wish the cost wasn’t so high and more along the same price as Sensi Star, which I feel was a better buy for me since it helped my chronic pain better.

Cannabis Review: Sensi Star Oil by KKE

Space out and see the stars

Sensi Star Oil by KKE (Khalifa Kush Enterprises) uses flower from 7ACRES and is extracted at MediPharms Labs in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. This is one of the most potent oils I’ve used to date and my first cannabis oil review in long-form.  

 

Cannabinoid Content and Terpenes

The information listed on the label showed 27.8mg of THC per mL and 0.8mg of CBD per mL, and in my personal view this is a high THC product. 

Unlike some oils on the market that remove the terpenes this brand keeps them by using a multi-phased approach using CO2 extraction for the highest quality output. As for what the terpene values are is anyone’s guess as they’re not listed, but the flower is dominant in myrcene and I would expect the same here. A few other notable terpenes are limonene and caryophyllene.

 

Price and Shipping

One 30mL bottle was purchased off the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) at the cost of $88.55 taxes included, which is about $2.95 per mL for 27.8mg of THC (just under 11 cents per mg of THC). The cost of shipping was $5 flat plus HST (13%) with Canada Post. No free options existed as of this writing and delivery took three business days to arrive.

 

Smell and Appearance

You wouldn’t be able to smell the oil unless you put your nose up to the opening of the bottle. Slight fragrances of a sweet cannabis plant with light earths are noticed, and when tasting the silky smooth yellow oil. Included in the packaging was a stopper to prevent the oil from spilling out easily and a perfectly labelled dosing dropper. I found measuring the dose was easy to use. 

 

Dosing and Subjective Effects

I started off with 0.5mL using the provided dropper and found good pain relief and relaxation, however I preferred 0.75 to one full mL for an optimal dose where I could still function. 

Effects took about 90 minutes to two hours to start working, this was the case when eating or without eating prior to dosing. I tried keeping the oil under my tongue for about a minute for quicker absorption and didn’t find a difference. 

The highest dose I tried was 2mL (55.6mg of THC) in one sitting, the effects were a lot stronger and I was couchlocked for the first hour or so once I started to feel it kicking in. At times I felt like I was floating and was slightly anxious. While this may sound concerning for some, I breathed in slowly and reminded myself that this is temporary and within an hour or so the peak hit and the effects started to ease into a nice calm and relaxing feeling. The pain relief I had was phenomenal the whole time!

Dry eyes were common among all doses, and noticeably stronger over 1mL. Slight dry mouth did occur as well. The effects lasted between four and six hours.

Keep in mind that some people may require higher or lower dosing. Always go low and slow to determine an optimal dose to ensure a good time. 

 

End Thought

While the cost may deter some from trying this oil, it’s worth every cent. This is one of the few brands on the retail side where they source from a single strain rather than a blended variety. I enjoy the terpenes being preserved as I believe they’re beneficial to the effect, and going this extra step shows the respect this plant deserves. 

At the end of the day I prefer to vape as the onset is quicker, but overall I found this to be a great oil to consume when my chronic pain is really bad at night.
