How Much Do I Take?
How Much Hemp Should I Take?
A good place to start is knowing you can never take "too much" of a Hemp Derived Product. There is no overdosing, no side effects, & no worrying. Although, if you do consume a much larger amount than normal, you risk becoming drowsy or possibly an upset stomach from too much of an ingredient like MCT Oil or Grapeseed Oil, which it can be infused with.
#1 Start by asking yourself your level of pain/severity of your condition on a scale of 1-10(or whatever scale you want to use, we aren't picky). This is a mixture of how severe your pain is, how often you experience that pain, and does the pain switch between mild and severe. (We are no doctors, we just love to research and recommend based on facts)
#2 Estimate your size, or measure yourself, and go based off your weight. An "average" amount of Hemp to take is 1mg per 10lbs of body weight. BUT, that depends on what's going on with your body, you might need more or less.
#3 Hemp Derived Oil, Capsules, & Certain edibles are going to be the most accurate, no-brainers, when it comes to measuring. Most bottles of Hemp Derived Oil will tell you how many mg’s are in 1/2-1 full dropper. While some Hemp Derived Oils will tell you how much Hemp is in 1 full dropper. Capsules and most edibles are measured out for you so there is no worry.
#4 Once you find the Hemp product of your choice, take that product 1-4 times daily, or as needed. Hemp will typically last 4-6hrs or more if you are taking the appropriate dose that helps alleviate your symptoms. There is no wrong time to take a Hemp Product. Take your Hemp when you feel you need to! Some people might need it once a day and others might need it 5 times per day. Everyone is different!
Always place your oil under the tongue and let it sit there for up to 1 minute. Allow it up to 45 minutes to start to take full effect, although in some cases the oil can start to take effect as soon as 5min.
