CBD can be an effective adjunct to treatment for conditions such as anxiety, pain, insomnia, arthritis, muscle spasms, IBD/IBS, and much more. The anti-inflammatory, neurocalming, antispasmotic, and pain relieving powers of CBD are just a few of the reasons it can be such a powerful therapy.
Dosing of CBD is very individual depending on each person’s endocannabinoid system, the reason for taking CBD (general wellness, anxiety, pain, insomnia, etc.), and the method of administration. Some people find relief with just 3mg and others require 25mg or more. It may take some experimenting for a couple of weeks to experience the full effect. Here are some basic guidelines for each Jannabis Wellness product:
Tincture: A full dropper of Jannabis Wellness 500mg peppermint tincture contains about 17mg of CBD. Shake well before using. For a starting dose I would try 1/4 to 1/2 of a dropper of tincture twice a day (take 10 deep breaths and hold tincture under your tongue for 1 to 2 minutes before swishing the tincture in your mouth and swallowing). The tincture is absorbed directly into your blood and you should feel the effect in about 15 minutes. Slowly increase the dose, if necessary, until you find the relief you desire.
HydroPCR Hemp Oil: This water-soluble PCR hemp oil is designed to be added to a liquid to make a shelf-stable beverage. Shake well before using. A full dropper contains about 34mg CBD, which is about 1mg CBD per drop. We recommend starting with 3 drops, 2 to 3 times per day. Increase by 1 or 2 drops at a time until you find relief. We do not recommend placing directly under the tongue since the flavor is bitter at full strength. We find that the flavor is undetectable when adding 3 drops to 4 ounces of water, though many prefer to add their drops to just an ounce of water and drink it down. Perfect for young and old and those who are not able to hold the peppermint tincture under their tongues and cannot swallow softgels. Many people find relief from severe pain using this HydroPCR hemp oil.
Softgels: Take one to two softgels daily as needed, with food (containing fat) for maximum absorption. Again, the dose is variable. For general wellness and anti-anxiety some find that 10mg per day is adequate. For pain and inflammatory conditions 25mg might be more appropriate. If you start with 10mg per day and do not see a desired effect in two weeks increase the dose to twice per day (20mg total). If you are taking a medication that interacts with grapefruit (some blood thinners and anti-arrhythmics) you should not take CBD within in 4 hours to reduce the chance of an interaction. Please reach out with any questions so we can discuss options for how best to take CBD.
Salve: Apply a small amount topically to the affected area two to three times per day to decrease pain and inflammation. Many find relief from migraines, joint pain, eczema, psoriasis, muscle aches, and bug bites. It's a small jar but is very concentrated, containing 1,000mg of CBD (many other brands contain 100 to 500mg CBD).
Roll-on: Apply topically to the affected area two to three times per day to decrease pain and inflammation. Half as concentrated as the salve with 500mg of CBD in the one-ounce bottle. Easy to apply. Non staining. Good for peripheral neuropathy and pain that covers a wide area.
Dog chews: Give one 2mg chew for every 18 to 20 pounds of dog, once or twice daily for anxiety, arthritis, and pain.
