Thus, behold my next assignment.
This is said to be the most potent means of use. There are varying amounts recommended for different ailments:
To increase appetite in cancer patients: 2.5 milligrams of THC by mouth with or without 1 mg of CBD for six weeks.
Also you can treat chronic pain: 2.5-20 mg CBD by mouth for an average of 25 days.
Here is it for treating epilepsy: 200-300 mg of CBD by mouth daily for up to 4.5 months.
You can treat movement problems associated with Huntington’s disease: 10 mg per kilogram of CBD by mouth daily for six weeks.
There is also a way to treat sleep disorders: 40-160 mg CBD by mouth.
And also to treat multiple sclerosis symptoms: Cannabis plant extracts containing 2.5-120 milligrams of a THC-CBD combination by mouth daily for 2-15 weeks.
A mouth spray might contain 2.7 milligrams of THC and 2.5 milligrams of CBD at doses of 2.5-120 milligram for up to eight weeks. Patients typically use eight sprays within any three hours, with a maximum of 48 sprays in any 24-hour period.
To treat schizophrenia: 40-1,280 mg CBD by mouth daily for up to four weeks
You could also glaucoma: a single CBD dose of 20-40 mg under the tongue. Doses greater than 40 mg may actually increase eye pressure.
CBD is most commonly taken orally in a concentrated paste or drops/ tincture format. To take CBD oil first hold it under the tongue to be absorbed in the mouth prior to swallowing.
As with most medications taken post-orally (by mouth), it enters the bloodstream more quickly than if taken in pill form.
CBD (Vape) Oil
CBD oil is the concentrated form of Cannabidiol in a liquid form, which is heated and inhaled through an E-Cigarette, Vape Pen, or Vaporizer. CBD vape oil can be purchased in a bottle to refill your vaporizer or as a one-time use cartridge for your Vape Pen.
Marijuana CBD extracts contain higher levels of THC than extracts derived from industrial hemp. While this is not necessarily a bad thing, one cannot count on being able to pass a drug test on the fly.
Industrial hemp CBD oil contains little to no THC. Thus, there is little to no chance of one testing positive.
Many customer reviews state that this is the least effective method of use. The effects are markedly less than when using capsules, tinctures or concentrates, The delayed reaction and inconsistent absorption are major drawbacks.
On the plus side, one will not get stoned, or high. The side effects most common with marijuana use, including munchies, paranoia, dry mouth, and blood-shot eyes, are of no consequence. This is a completely non-psychotropic feeling.
Most of us do not think of popping pills when thinking of ways to ingest, imbibe, or partake.
Smoking or vaping only lasts short periods of time. Maybe an hour or two at most.
Tinctures and oils last longer but still are not good for extended time periods. Most reviews state about 3-5 hours.
The estimated amount of time one can reasonably expect relief with capsules is around 6-8 hours. Most recommend this method for overnight use or for use when other methods are not available or accessible. Also, one cannot vape on a plane…
Capsules usually contain 20 mg of CBD and 0.15 mg of THC per capsule. This method is used in treatment of nausea, neuropathic pain, anxiety, spasms, MS and other spasticity disorders. The added benefit of this method is unlike contemporary cannabis products and has no mind-altering properties.
Studies show it is a neuroprotective (implies a reduction in the rate of neuronal loss over time) which would indicate it is good for the brain. Now, if only we could apply that to the stoner’s brain and help with short term memory…
Cancer has also shown to be susceptible to the CannaCap (why they aren’t calling it that is beyond me!!). Yes, it does appear that it has been helpful in slowing and even reducing the spread of some cancers. Studies are currently under way.
For those of us who prefer to have sustained oral satisfaction, may I kindly suggest CBD gum!
As with the other methods taken by mouth (post-orally), CBD gum also quickly enters the system in one’s mouth but not swallowed as with pills.
Again, this method enters the system quickly without having to go through the stomach, digestive tract, or intestine. Delivery rapid but so is the decline.
There is no swallowing pills and no painful injections. Gum seems like a quick and effective method for children and younger people. There is pain and no long term commitment to the effects. For anyone with children, this is an automatic “yay!
Tinctures, or sprays, are a quick and easy way to get the CBD kick. Premeasured and ready to go, these sprays allow one to use as much or as little as necessary for maximum benefit.
The average recommended dosage is 2 sprays on the tongue and viola! Instant CBD-goodness right on time.
It is strongly recommended that one commit to this treatment for a minimum of 2 weeks, adjusting dosing as needed until one finds the right amount for their individual needs.
A downside to this method is that the tincture is light and heat sensitive. Leaving your little spray bottle in the heat or sun is not advised. This will degrade the product and decrease its potency. We don’t want that. So, be sure to keep it in a cool, dark place.
I am amazed at the sheer number of products and companies offering goods.
I am not amazed at how well this industry has taken off and exploded into the market! People everywhere are looking for better ways to manage every day issues without resorting to a chemical romance.
Numbered are the days of going to the doctor and asking him to give us a chemical alternative to our predicament! Proper education and the dissemination of the knowledge already garnered from years of research can change the way the world looks at treating many chronic ailments.
I hope to see, in my lifetime, a change in the tide. I see now, the waves made by the pebbles thrown into the placid lake of society.
Ripples, fanned by the wings of butterflies, can create waves. Flames of passion and purpose can ignite with a spark.
Waves of change fanning the flames of passion and purpose…
This is revolutionary.
All of these products and various methods of use are tried and true. As with any treatment, please consult a physician before making any changes to the current medications one is taking. Do not be afraid to ask if any or all of these may be of benefit to you.
Also, do not be afraid to do a little bit of digging on one’s own. If one is at all considering adding CBD to their daily regimen, please do so with an educated mind. Find out what will work best or what is best to avoid or put off trying. There is no sense in wasting one’s time or money for the sake of doing so.
If there is someone out there whom may be able to benefit from the use of CBD, please share this article with them. Nothing is a cure-all, but some things are worth giving more consideration.
CBD and THC have been around since the dawn of time, for all we know. Documented use in medical treatment goes back over 3,000 years. We may be a bit behind the times in seeing the benefits, but at least we are awakening to the reality.
What a wonderful time in which to live. Let’s leave the world a better place for having us in it.
