Kind Sativa Smalls™

Kind Sativa Smalls is available in a 30 gram pouch and contains small sized buds of cannabis flower. It is a sativa dominant hybrid from the Electric Grapefruit cultivar with 20% THC and <1% CBD.

Product Introduction

Kind Sativa Smalls contains a THC-dominant medicinal cannabis flower with high concentrations of THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and low levels of CBD (cannabidiol). All medicinal cannabis products that contain THC are psychoactive and may lead to temporary neurocognitive impairment.

Kind Sativa Smalls is available as a dried medicinal cannabis flower and is designed for inhalation using a TGA-approved vaporiser. It can be taken on a metered dosage schedule or as needed (PRN) as determined by prescribers. Patients should work closely with their doctor as dosing schedules are highly individual and guided by therapeutic response.

Dosing & Titration

Patients and prescribers should work together to determine the optimal dosing schedule where the medical benefit is maximised. We recommend the “start low, go slow” approach, where patients start with a low dose and slowly increase (or titrate) until the optimal therapeutic benefit is achieved.

Below is an example of a titration schedule:

Accurate dosing and titration of medicinal cannabis flower can be challenging. This may be due to inconsistency in the amount of medicine administered, variance in cannabinoid profiles, discrepancies in temperature during vaporisation and length and depth of inhalation breath.

For reliable and repeatable dosing of medicinal cannabis, patients should pay close attention to the administration conditions and aim to replicate them consistently.

When starting the titration process, patients and doctors should maintain a consistent dosing schedule and adjust dose timing if needed. New medicinal cannabis patients should wait up to 30 minutes after the initial dose to assess the effects before having another dose.2

Administration Through Inhalation

Inhalation is one of the most efficient ways to take medicinal cannabis. It offers a rapid onset time (typically providing relief in 5 to 10 minutes), with an expected duration of 2 to 4 hours. This is significantly faster than oral and sublingual ingestion which have an onset period of 1 to 3 hours.3

Inhalation through combustion (smoking paraphernalia) is not recommended due to the risk that smoking poses to patients, including potential contribution to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Patients should use a TGA-approved vaporiser to heat the dried medicinal cannabis flower below the point of combustion to create smoke-free vapour. It is important to note that vaporiser temperature settings can impact medicinal cannabis, as every cannabinoid, terpenoid and flavonoid contains a different boiling point.

There are three general temperature bands:
