Frequently Asked Questions

Juna prioritizes purity, consistency, and safety in all of our products to ensure unparalleled pleasure and well-being.

How is Juna different from other cannabis brands?

Juna embraces a farm-to-table philosophy, using organically sun-grown cannabis only - emphasizing single-origin cannabis and specific vintages in the tradition of fine winemaking. This approach ensures the freshest and most effective product possible and uniquely subtle flavor profiles. We work directly with farmers, chemists, and chefs to keep the full nutrient spectrum and unique terroir of the plants intact, resulting in distinct, subtly delightful physical and mental experiences.

Juna is also unique in that its formulas are dispensed in a microdosing system that allows you to design your own result. See below for more information.

What is a targeted dose or microdose?

Less is more. We believe an optimal experience comes from functional, small doses compatible with everyday life. With microdosing, an individual is getting the maximum benefit from the minimum amount, without becoming paranoid, “stoned,” or lethargic. The approach has been known to help people take the mental edge off in social or stressful situations, allowing them to tune in and stimulate and deepen social conversation and creativity.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

Cannabinoids are naturally produced by the human body as part of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The cannabis plant is biphasic and adaptogenic, which means that in small doses it has tremendous therapeutic benefits and in large doses it could be potentially harmful. Low-dose cannabis use may stimulate the body to produce more endogenous cannabinoids on its own.

How do I know the right dose for me?

Start low and go slow. If you’re new to cannabis, we recommend you begin with a 5mg dose. Daily intake has been known to regulate the ECS and change your tolerance. Patience is the key to discovering your best dose. Tolerance can also be affected day to day by outside influences such as alcohol, food consumption, hormone cycle, sleep, hydration, and environment.

Cannabis the next superfood

Past stigmas aside, many compounds found in the cannabis plant, such as CBD, are now known to scientists as neuroprotectants and have the potential to increase cognitive function in a developed brain. When our bodies are nourished by phytocannabinoids, we move closer to the internal balance known as homeostasis, benefiting immunity and general well-being.

Can I take CBD products while taking other medication?

We are not authorized to give any medical advice, Please check with your doctor.

Are your products organic?

Our flower is grown organically, and in some cases biodynamically.

What is MCT oil?

Organic MCT oil is the only ingredient in Juna Drops other than cannabis. It is concentrated with medium-chain triglycerides, capric acid, and caprylic acid derived from coconuts. It is easily digested, can improve brain function, metabolism, and is burned by the body for energy, making it an excellent option for health-conscious individuals, athletes, or those following a plant-based diet. MCT oil is made by gently removing the fats from virgin coconut oil; no chemicals or filler oils are used in the process. The result is a clean, silky oil with a light coconut flavor that pairs perfectly with our cannabis flower extracts.

Do they contain any dairy, sugar, or gluten?

Our products are free of dairy, sugar, and gluten and are non-gmo.

Where are your products lab-tested?

Our cannabis flower, active extract, and final drops are 3rd party tested to ensure purity and guaranteed dosage.

How do you come up with your product formulations?

Before any product launches, it will go through a carefully selected and diverse alpha testing group. Products must meet strict approval criteria for experience, dosage, consistency, taste, and texture.

Glossary of terms

Cannabinoids:
The active chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant that mimic compounds our body naturally produces called endocannabinoids. They bind with our internal receptors to create homeostasis within the body. THC is the most well-known cannabinoid because of its psychoactive effects, while CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis sativa and hemp plant, is gaining popularity for its ability to help regulate mood and hormones, decrease anxiety, reduce inflammation, suppress seizures, and more. There are more 80 identified cannabinoids or accessory compounds found in the plant, such as CBC, CBN, and CBG. Cannabinoids are most effective when working together as a whole-flower or full-spectrum extract, thanks to the entourage effect.

The entourage effect:
THC, CBD, and the many naturally occurring botanical compounds found in whole-plant cannabis extract interact synergistically to magnify the therapeutic benefits and balance the individual components’ psychotropic attributes. The impact is greater than the sum of its parts.

Terpenes:
Terpenes are the fragrant compounds that give each cannabis plant and extract its unique aromatic bouquet. Some of them are exactly the same molecules found in well-known essential oils from flowers, fruits, and other plants. Produced by each flower’s resin glands, which also generate THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids, terpenes bind to receptors in the brain and give rise to various physical and mental effects. When present as part of whole-plant cannabis extracts, they contribute to the unique character of each strain or vintage’s experience.

CO2 extraction:
This is a non-toxic, solvent-free, environmentally friendly, FDA-approved method for the manufacture of food products. Utilizing state-of-the-art processes and equipment, our chemist preserves the cannabinoid composition and medicinal benefits of each harvest of cannabis flowers. The result is a full-spectrum, highly concentrated extract, rich in complementary cannabinoids and terpenes that intensify the plant’s natural physiological and psychoactive effects. Most extractors do not take the additional time and attention to detail to do this and only focus on a high THC percentage extract. While this may be effective for someone who just wants to get “high,” it is not part of what identifies each strain’s experiential effects.
