Hemp Oil Tincture from Elixinol
Drop the liquid under your tongue and hold for 2 minutes. 5mg CBD per 1/2 dropper. The longer you can keep the oil in your mouth, the more CBD will absorb thru the mucosal tissue and get directly into the bloodstream. Once you swallow something, then it must be digested and your supplement is then diluted and also wont take effect for 20-60 minutes. Natural and Cinnamint oils contain whole plant nutrients, and even though they are not liposomes (better absorption), these options are more powerful than typical CBD oils. Start with 1/4 dropper. Dr. Blair, Elixinol’s medical consultant, recommends doubling the dose until you find benefit. Each of us needs a different dose, dependent upon your condition and your absorption ability. Omega 3’s (specifically DHA/EPA) and Chia/flax/hemp seeds all help with CBD absorption. After a meal with fats is a good time to use the tincture, but not necessary since it comes blended with MCT oil.
Use as needed, but it is best to apply after your shower in the morning when your skin is ready to absorb nutrients. Also apply at bedtime so your body can heal during the night. Always apply before physical therapy or exercise. At least twice a day induces better healing.
Dosing for pets is usually done by weight, even tho we don’t dose by weight for humans. For our Pet tinctures, start with 5 drops in the mouth if pet is over 50lbs; one drop per every 10 pounds if under 50lbs. Add a drop per dose until your pet perks up, seems happier or seems to be in less pain.
