Pretty mild. Foresty. Had trouble pinning it down more than that. Agreeable enough.
Typically I used the oil sublingually after eating food with some fat content. I was surprised to find that I could often feel the effects within a few minutes. Somehow, it also seems to last longer than I’d expect too.
At 2mg/ml, I can certainly feel the THC when dosing 2ml. It can provide a buzz, but 2ml of Sugar Leaf’s 1:5 oil is still a relatively calm, and grounded experience.
Cool thing is, unlike other oils I’ve tried, I don’t necessarily feel the need to use 2ml of this stuff. A little seems to go a long way. I consistently felt much better with 1ml, or maybe even a little less, of Sugarleaf’s oil than do with 2ml+ of the 1:20 CBD oils I’ve tried from Solei and Edison. Perhaps something about the 1:5 ratio results in a more effective CBD experience? The two molecules are known to work synergistically.
Very cerebral, positive vibes. Physically light. Contented rather than euphoric. Can feel a smooth electric floatiness at times when dosing higher amounts (2ml+).
Is it full spectrum?
At the time I purchased this product ocs.ca described this product as full spectrum. I found it a little odd that I couldn’t find any mention of full spectrum in other provinces where it’s listed or on the Sugarleaf website. So I decided to investigate. After a week Sugarleaf had not responded to my original inquiry. I tried again through another avenue and was told:
Unfortunately our Sugarleaf 1:5 oil is not full spectrum. It does not contain all cannabinoids, just CBD and THC.7ACRES Customer Care
I like the unique 1:5 THC:CBD ratio. It fills the gap left between the minimal THC and the balanced 1:1 products. The effects are pleasant, smooth, and have a little more depth than the minimal THC oils.
It comes with a syringe, which makes accurately measuring out smaller doses easy. It also includes a dropper without measurements marked. I really appreciated that glass, rather than plastic, was used for the bottle.
Since the dropper is also the top for the oil bottle, I did find it slightly awkward figuring out what to do with the dropper when filling up the syringe. My solution to avoid mess and waste has been to balance the dropper upside down in the part of the box that holds the syringe.

Dose: 2ml (22.8mg CBD – 4mg THC) with a handful of cashews, about 1 hour after having bread with peanut butter and honey.
Mild to neutral taste. Syringe included in package definitely makes it easier to measure out a specific amount. Do to the length, it’s a bit awkward to dispense under your tongue. Unlike the droppers, I didn’t have to second guess when it was all out.
Can feel a slight hint of relaxation creeping in around the temples.
Doing a little light computer work and made some phone inquiries.
Seemed like the onset was fairly quick. A light floaty-relaxed-content feeling, but maintaining mental focus.
Still hard at work on a visual layout design. Very focused. Sense of excitement about what I’m doing.
Got a little further on my layout, then hung out with the kid while wife put the finishing touches on lunch. Fun.
Kid had a brief meltdown. Tried to help calm the situation, but was told to ‘go away’. The storm passed quick though. Scrambled eggs were delicious. Then had some fun explaining why all food can’t be the kid’s favourite colour. The explanation seemed to go over alright.
Effects still going strong and smooth. Feeling buoyant and engaged.
Effects diminishing now. Still a nice glow though. Feeling positive and focused
Light tingle left. Made good progress on work. Feel good still, but all physical sensations created from the oil are faded well into the background now.
