FAQs About Getting Started with Cannabis Oils and Medicinal Tinctures from CannaKids

Welcome to CannaKids.org. CannaKids is a California Cooperative Corporation with non-profit values. We provide medicinal cannabis oil to both pediatric and adult patients.

CannaKids is currently conducting clinical trials to investigate anecdotal evidence that cannabis medicine may be effective in treating the following concerns:

  • Cancer
  • Epilepsy
  • Autism
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Parkinson’s
  • Chronic Pain
  • Crohn’s
  • Opioid Addiction
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Migraines and more.

What Is Cannabis Oil?

Cannabis oil is medicine derived from the the plant known scientifically as Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa. A full plant spectrum cannabis oil, called an extract or concentrate, contains compounds called cannabinoids that are essential to a healthy, properly functioning endocannabinoid system. The mammalian endocannabinoid system is made up of receptors that connect with cannabinoids such as CBD, THC, and THCa.

What Is CBD or Cannabidiol?

Cannabidiol or CBD is one such cannabinoid that is currently receiving a lot of attention for its role in the successful treatment of pediatric epilepsy. CBD is not psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t induce the “high” effect that people often attribute with cannabis or its slang nomiker marijuana. CBD is often described as having a soothing effect, making it a complimentary treatment for symptoms related to anxiety. Concentrated honey gold CBD oil can also be quite effective in relieving pain.

What Is THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol?

THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis that elicits feelings of euphoria and an overall sense of relaxation. Increased laughter, fatigue, or hunger are examples of side effects that may be experienced by adults when consuming THC or products containing THC. Research indicates that THC oil or medicine in conjunction with other cannabinoids and plant terpenes may be useful in treating PTSD (related to trauma), nausea, inflammation, cancer, sleep apnea, and loss of appetite.

What Is THCa?

THCa or Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid is the raw form of THC found in the live cannabis plant prior to curing or drying. Once heated, THCa is converted to THC through a process called decarboxylation. THCa can be derived as a healthy dietary supplement by juicing the cannabis plant or from low-temperature extraction processes.


How Do I Get Started With Cannabis Treatment?

NEW PATIENTS: The recommended dose varies per patient depending on the medical condition, medications, age, weight and other various factors. To ensure the best care possible, we strongly recommend obtaining a suggested dosing protocol from a cannabis dosing expert prior to moving forward with an order.

Once our CannaKids patient coordinators know what your personal cannabis dosing protocol is, we will then be able to help properly guide you in which of our cannabis oils, cannabis tinctures, or other products to purchase; in how to take the cannabis medicine and in safely titrating your dose.

If you are a caregiver of a CannaKids patient, we can also support you in attending to a patient under your care with our educational videos. Additional resources such as research articles and nutritional information can be found on our sister 501(c)3 non-profit site SavingSophie.org.

How Do I Measure My Dose?

How Do I Join The CannaKids Medical Cannabis Collective?

Your Medical Marijuana Recommendation (or “card”) and California I.D. Is Required: If this is for a patient under the age of 18, you will need a “caregiver recommendation”.


In order to obtain a caregiver recommendation, search Google for “[your zip code] + medical marijuana doctor” and then call the top rated office(s) near you to confirm that they provide caregiver recommendations for patients under 18. Be sure to inquire if any additional medical documentation is required to support the minor’s medical condition claims.


Visit CannaKids at HelloMD to obtain your medical recommendation online from the comfort and privacy of your home using your personal computer. NOTE: They do not provide Caregiver Recommendations — only adult medical cannabis recommendations.

For more information, visit United Patients Group resources.

Step 3: Complete Your Intake Form To Register With The CannaKids Collective.

All new patients must complete our Intake Form. This will provide us with helpful information about your situation so that we may support you with the best possible care.

We will then request that you provide a clear copy of your medical marijuana recommendation and/or “caregiver recommendation” as well as your California Driver’s License/Identification Card. You may click here to send a copy via email (info[@]CannaKids.org).

Membership Agreement & Medical Information Disclaimer Form: Once we have verified the doctor’s recommendation and confirmed receipt of the Intake Form, we will then send over the final membership documents through an e-signature program, allowing you to view and sign the documents online. The email will come from CannaKids Co.

How Do I Purchase CannaKids Cannabis Oil, Cannabis Tinctures, Or Other Cannabis Medicinal Products?

NOTE: At this time, CannaKids is only authorized to distribute cannabis medicine to patients in California. Cannabis products including CannaKids medicine cannot lawfully cross state lines.

Placing Your Order: Once we have confirmed receipt of the necessary above-mentioned documentation, you may reach us via email or call us to submit your order.

DELIVERY: For CannaKids collective members, we have a few options for getting the cannabis oil, cannabis medicinal tinctures, or other cannabis products to our patients.

A. Patient-to-Patient Delivery: Schedule a specific time for one of our team members to meet you at a location of your choice. This option is only available for Los Angeles and the surrounding areas and is to be scheduled with a CannaKids Patient Coordinator.

B. Dispensary: The person who holds the marijuana recommendation (either patient or a caregiver) can purchase CannaKids cannabis medicine from one of the dispensaries that carry our products. See the dispensary locations here.

PRICING: Our patient coordination team will put together an order breakdown based on the suggested dosing protocol you receive from a dosing expert.Please note that prices vary when purchasing from a dispensary.

What Do I Look For When Purchasing Cannabis Medicine?

Clear Labels: Look for labels showing the quantity and ratio of cannabis compounds CBD, THC, and/or THCa per dose.

Lab Testing: Look for products that are tested for consistency, and verified as free of mold, bacteria, pesticides, solvent residues, and other contaminants.

Quality Ingredients: Select products with quality ingredients. AVOID corn syrup, GMOs, transfats, or artificial additives.

Safe Extraction: AVOID products extracted with toxic solvents like BHO, propane, hexane or other hydrocarbons. Solvent residues are especially dangerous for immune-compromised patients. Look for products that entail a safer method of extraction like supercritical CO2.

Cannabis Not Industrial Hemp: Compared to whole plant cannabis, industrial hemp is low in cannabinoid content. A huge amount of industrial hemp is required to extract a small amount of CBD, raising the risk of contaminants because hemp, a bioaccumulator, draws toxins and heavy metals from soil. The robust terpene profile of whole plant cannabis enhances the therapeutic benefits of CBD, THC and THCa. NOTE: New genetics of hemp are available that offer a safe solution for topical products or for dietary supplement by users with healthy immune systems. Source: Project CBD
