The Heroic Dose: How and Why We Made a 200mg THC Soft Gel

A new year means a new start, and ABX is here to announce a brand new product! We’ve created one of the most unique cannabis products in California – the 200mg THC Soft Gel. Designed for those who primarily use cannabis for medicinal purposes, our proprietary 200mg Soft Gel boasts the largest single dose of orally administered THC. Read on to learn all about how this unparalleled product came to be, why we’re excited about it, and the many reasons it might just be your new favorite way to consume cannabis.

Routine & Reliable: THC Soft Gels for Everyday Relief

We created our 200mg THC Soft Gel to give you a precisely-dosed, long-lasting, discreet solution to make your days better. If you’re an experienced consumer and want potent relief, this super-strength capsule is for you. Soft gels make it easy to incorporate cannabis into your everyday routine – take it with your morning vitamins, post-workout or after a long walk, or save it for a night of relaxation.

Best In Show: The Highest THC Dose Available

We were fortunate enough to find a way to classify the ABX Soft Gels 200mg as a concentrate, instead of an edible, which we know will be extremely beneficial for those seeking daytime relief. And the best part? You can buy it at your local dispensary – no medical card needed!

As CannaCraft’s Director of New Products Matt Elmes mentioned in Forbes, “Though the state limits edibles to 10mg per clearly identifiable item and 100mg per package, per the strictures of Proposition 64, our 200mg Soft Gel evades that limitation by technically qualifying as concentrates, instead. This allows for a 1000mg per package limitation on products sold in California’s recreational dispensaries.”

The 200mg Soft Gels come in 5-packs or single-packs to ensure it's below the California threshold of 1,000mg THC total per package, making it easy for us to stock it at a dispensary near you.

So, are you now wondering why this is classified as a concentrate and not an edible?

Here’s the gist brought to you by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH):

Regulations establish three classifications for manufactured cannabis products: Edible, Concentrate and Topical. Products classified as Edible Cannabis Products are those which generally resemble traditional food and beverage items – in other words, items traditionally found in a grocery store. Capsules are classified as Cannabis Concentrates – a category established in state statutes which includes other concentrated products like tinctures and vape cartridges, which do not resemble traditional food or beverage products.”

Basically, our highly-potent soft gels are not your average food or beverage item, so they’re in the clear to be deemed a concentrate. This is great news for us, since it means we can help our customers who require more than 10mg of THC per serving, with no additional caloric intake.

Soft Gel 411: How It’s Made

We created the highest single-serve THC available in California using a process called ethanol extraction. This is a single-stream process that allows us to produce extremely pure distillate (99% THC potency) and utilizes food-grade ethanol to enhance our extraction efficiency and capacity. Made with just MCT oil, gelatin, water, glycerin and cannabis oil, our 200mg Softgel is simple, yet effective.

ABX Soft Gels are considered a concentrate by the CDPH, and we chose to infuse it into a simple, convenient soft gel to make your life easier! Plus, we even added a small amount of CBD to our formulation for enhanced synergistic effects (aka the beloved Entourage Effect). In case you’re thinking, WTF is the “entourage effect”? Well, the Entourage Effect activates when different cannabinoids and terpenes work together for maximum benefits. In fact, THC "unlocks" our endocannabinoid receptors throughout our body, allowing CBD to work more effectively. Who knew a little CBD could go such a long way?

More Bang for your Buck: High Dose, Low Price

Want more for less? You got it. As a cannabis brand that strives to be accessible to all, with the 200mg THC Soft Gel, we’re thrilled to tell you that we can provide this higher dose for experienced cannabis users at a lower price. It’s the perfect solution for those seeking a concentrated dose for everyday use, and it’s one of the most cost-effective price per milligram of THC on the California market.

We’re proud to be the first company to make such a potent product, and we hope it helps you find relief. As always, we’re here to answer any questions you might have. Please reach out at [email protected].
