How do I take Medihemp?
- 1. Fill the dropper completely
- 2. Squeeze the full dropper of oil under your tongue
- 3. Without swallowing, hold the oil under your tongue for 30 seconds.
- 4. Wait one hour and evaluate the level of relief
Taking sublingual hemp oil (under the tongue) is one of easiest and most effective ways to take each dose.
With two delicious flavors to choose from, taking Medihemp sublingually makes for a pleasant experience!
What dose should I take for anxiety or pain?
The general rule of thumb is to administer 2 two full droppers for your first dose and wait a few hours and monitor the effects. Repeat this process until you feel you are at a comfortable level.
The right dose for you will vary on the severity of your condition as well as other factors such as body chemistry, body mass and age. In some cases it can take 2 or 3 days for the Medihemp to begin working with your endocannabinoid system. Be patient while it begins to work with your body.
What dose should I take Medihemp for aiding in sleep?
A higher dose of Medihemp 30 minutes before bed is advised for aiding with sleep.
Hemp oil at small doses has a mildly stimulating effect. However, at a larger one time dose, hemp oil will have a more sedative effect and be more effective for sleep. The reason for this, is because all hemp oil has biphasic properties, which means the effects can vary slightly at different concentration levels.
Safely increasing your dose
Since Medihemp is non-toxic and non-psychoactive, you can safely increase your dosage until you find a comfortable level.
There are very low risks of negative side effects even at dosages as high as 700mgs/day.
The Department of Health and Human Services states:
No signs of toxicity or serious side effects have been observed following chronic administration of cannabidiol to healthy volunteers...even in large acute doses of 700 mg/day
(Cunha et al., Pharmacology 21:127-185, 1980), (Consroe et al., Pharmacol, Biochem, Behav. 40:701-708, 1991).’
Should I take Medihemp with or without food?
Medihemp can be taken with our without food.
Medihemp is delivered sublingually and absorbed through the membranes of the mouth giving your body higher bioavailibilty and faster onset than if swallowed. This is why we recommend holding it under the tongue before swallowing.
If you wish to mix the hemp oil in food or a beverage, it will still be effective but may require a higher dose. Mixing Medihemp oil with foods higher in oils or fats will help preserve the hemp oil and increase its bioavailibilty as it is metabolized by the digestive system.
Why are oil tinctures more effective than pills?
When hemp oil is swallowed as a pill, it must be processed through the digestive system where the active ingredients are metabolized and broken down. The process of metabolizing causes changes to the structure of the hemp oil and lowers its bioavailibilty to your Endocannabinoid (ECS) system, where the hemp oil is most effective. In short, it reduces the effectiveness of the hemp oil.
How many milligrams of hemp oil are in each dropper?
Each 30ml bottle of Medihemp contains 40 servings (1 full dropper) and each full dropper will contain 3.75mgs of hemp oil isolate.
