Public Service Announcement: Important, please read. Thank you :)
First time edible consumers should start with 5 to 10 milligrams [mg] of THC (one or two servings, in Oregon's recreational market, a single edible serving = 5 mg). Then wait at least 3 to 4 hours before consuming more.
Some people won't even notice a 5 mg dose, while others will. A 10 mg dose could feel similar to a 12 oz beer or 5 oz glass of wine. Note that there is no scientific data supporting these statements. These are simply statements of other users' experience with THC edibles.
Last but not least, an edible consumer's tolerance may increase over time. You may have a friend that can consume 25 or 50 mg at once and enjoy that experience. However, if you are a first time user, that will not be the case for you. DO NOT consume more than 10 mg when first trying THC edibles.
If you do over-consume, please reference this article.

Use the caramel THC measuring device on your Periodic caramel label to control your experience. If your caramel is a little too soft to cleanly cut with a knife, put it in the refrigerator for 5 minutes, then cut the caramel. Periodic caramels can be re-wrapped in their original packaging for later consumption.

The CBD Caramel is perfect for relaxing, taking the pressure off and balancing out the stress from day to day life we all endure. We target higher CBD strains with lower THC so you have an option for a cannabinoid edible that doesn't come with the stronger psychoactive high but has many of the same cannabis benefits.
All of our Cannabis Caramels are made with strain specific cannabutter. We are currently using Harlequin to infuse our CBD Caramels. Always look for the strain name in the white box on our display jars for the specific strain used for each caramel type. The strain name will also be on the caramel label.

All of our Caramels are hand made in an Oregon Department of Agriculture certified commercial kitchen.

Sativa Edibles are uplifting, energetic and mood enhancing. Check out this guide from Leafly for Sativa like activities around Oregon this summer.
Our standard Caramels are enhanced with sea salt, but we also do short run seasonal flavor releases. We made an Orange Vanilla Caramel over the summer, recently did a Sour Apple Caramel and planning a new flavor release for the holidays. Follow our instagram and facebook pages for updates on new releases.
All of our caramels are made with Canna-Butter that is made in house. THC, CBD and all other cannabinoids are fat soluble, making butter a great medium to infuse with cannabis.
There are 3 key compound groups that come from the cannabis plant, those are cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. More studies are revealing the vital role that terpenes play in the "high" experience when consuming cannabis. Here is another good article from SSC diving deeper into terpenes and flavonoids.
During the CannaButter infusion process, we do lose some of the lower boiling point terpenes. However our CannaButter holds onto terpenes with a boiling point over 250 F.
We are currently running experiments around re-introducing food grade terpenes back into the caramels to achieve a more consistent, repeatable experience. We have much more R&D to do around terpenes in edibles and we're excited to see where that research leads! Look for more updates on terpenes in early 2018.
A day in the life of a Periodic Sativa Caramel :)
We are working on a NEW Vegan Caramel formula. So far the new formula looks promising, a few more experiment batches to run, and we should have this NEW Vegan Caramel on Oregon shelves by early 2018.
