Guideline Dosing Suggestions
Dosing for CBD from hemp and other hemp extract products is unique to the individual. Unlike traditional pharmaceuticals, the dosages may vary depending on the needs of your own body and the condition of your Endocannabinoid System. The product will work with your body and your individual needs to help it adapt and recuperate. The goal is to reach the point of homeostasis or wellness.
Dosing Guidelines for Tinctures/Oils:
- Start your daily regimen by dropping 5-10 drops directly under your tongue or on your lower lip and let it absorb for 30 to 60 seconds. You will NOT get high or have any psychoactive effects as the THC level is under .3 mg. (Total Dose = .6 ml approximately 20-24 drops)
- Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose.
(FYI: One train of thought is to start with large doses to saturate the body quickly then reduce the amount you are taking once you feel positive results. However, you may experience a detoxing effect with these larger doses, so we typically do not recommend this method.)
- Use the same dose and ratio for several days. Observe the effects and consider if you need to adjust the ratio or amount. If no/few positive results are noticed, increase the dose by another 5 drops. For example, if you were taking 5 drops, 2 times a day, you would increase to 5 drops, 3 times a day. Continue this increased dose for 3 to 4 days then reevaluate your progress.
- Increase the dose by another 5-10 days every few days as outlined in Step 3 until your condition is alleviated. Congratulations! You have reached your “sweet spot”!
Consider the condition you’re treating. For anxiety, depression, spasms, nausea, and pediatric seizure disorders, you may do better with a moderate dose of CBD spaced out throughout the day.
If you have trouble sleeping, you may want to increase doses at night to improve quality of sleep or relieve pain, so you can rest well and recuperate throughout the night.
For more extreme conditions like MS, fibromyalgia, migraines, chronic pain or cancer, you may want to start at 5 drops at least 3x per day and add more if needed. However, we have had customers with these conditions who use only a few drops a day and their symptoms were relieved. Unfortunately, as you can see, there is no set-in-stone dosing guideline as each person’s Endocannabinoid System Deficiency varies; therefore, the optimal dose varies as well.
The important thing is to stay in tune with your body, your symptoms and how you feel throughout the day. Note any changes in how you feel and in your sleeping habits. Keep a journal of your dosing and of your symptoms (or lack of!) Many people experience unexpected positive results in other areas of their life or body such as better moods, more endurance, less muscle aches, less hair loss or stronger nails, etc.
Take note: This is a marathon not a race. Some people get immediate relief while others need to find their “sweet spot” which may take a few weeks to a month…. CONSISTENCY IS KEY! Keep adjusting your dose as described above UNTIL YOU GET RELIEF!
Unlike traditional pharmaceuticals, your dosing does not have to be precise. Do not be preoccupied with the mgs per day that you are taking. A few drops a day typically goes a long way! Just remember, less is more—start low and go slow! Adjust your dose as your body requires. Over time, you will probably be able to DECREASE your dose as your body reaches homeostasis. You will determine your maintenance dose and take that as needed. If a new illness or injury occurs, you will adjust dose upwards (if needed) till it is controlled then drop back to your maintenance dose once again.
