Since our tinctures are concentrated, they are designed to be taken in small doses and can be administered in a variety of ways. With our measured droppers you can mix your dose into a meal/beverage or placed it directly under your tongue. Firstly, how do I know how much to take?
There is no one-size-fits all dosage. So how do you figure out how much is right for you? Start with 0.5ml twice a day for 4-7 days, after that you should be able to tell if you need to higher or lower your dosage.
You can mix it with food or drinks
Some people prefer to mix their dose with food, like soup, salad, or pasta or into a drink like a smoothie, coffee, or tea; mixing a dose into a cup of chamomile tea in the evening is sure to give you a good night’s sleep.
When you mix our tinctures with food or drinks, its active ingredients are absorbed through the digestive system where it is broken down in the stomach and then is absorbed by the small intestine and sent to your liver. Your liver then sends the active compounds to your bloodstream where they can start their healing.
The downside of this method is that since the active ingredients aren’t sent directly through to your bloodstream it can take a bit longer for you to feel the effects and some of the compounds are lost through the digestion process.
Most effective way is to place under your tongue
Especially if you are treating an illness or pain the fastest way to receive relief is by dropping the oil directly under the tongue and holding it there for 30 seconds. This way it will be released quickly into the bloodstream through the capillaries in your mouth.
Dosing this way allows the hemp oil compounds to bypass the digestive system and quickly reach the bloodstream where it can work its magic!
