How do I take Dr. Cass’ Hemp Oil Tincture?

The dose is quite variable depending on your own endocannabinoid level – which depends on many factors such as your genetics, stress level, diet, and more.

Whichever dose size you choose, start low and slow. Only your own body can tell you how much you need.

Some people may take 5 drops of the 500 mg, about 4 mg, a few times a day, and others take a whole dropper of the 1500 mg bottle, which is 25 mg, 2-4 times a day (50-100 mg) or more. This is quite a spread, and it’s not dependent on your size, age, or weight, either.

When you squeeze the white bulb once, the amount that comes up in the 2 ml dropper is 1 ml, which is 1 dose.

With the 1 oz (30 ml) bottle, each squeeze pulls up 0.5 ml which is half a dose—and may be sufficient.

For both the 1 oz and 2 oz bottles:

Please don’t try to “double fill” the dropper, or it will drip and be otherwise difficult to manage. In fact, when dropping it under your tongue, be careful not to get any on your clothing. I’d suggest you place your hand below your chin to catch any drips. Also be careful not to touch the dropper to your lips or tongue, thereby contaminating it. While it’s not likely to support bacterial growth, it’s best to keep your product as pristine as you can.

Being fat soluble, it’s best taken close to a meal containing some fat for optimal absorption.

No need to refrigerate it.

More important for dosing is – how does it affect your target symptom(s)? Gradually increase your dose till you find the one that works for you. It may vary from day to day and over time, and often decreases as your body starts to heal. So, notice if you feel calmer, fall asleep more readily and stay asleep longer, or that you no longer feel an ache or discomfort. You’ll find that other issues may resolve as well, due to our built-in endocannabinoid system being a master messenger and controller of the body’s inner balance or homeostasis. Its job is to protect us, and help us to relax and de-stress.

What does Hemp Oil Extract/CBD do?

Hemp Oil Extract activates the body’s own inner cannabinoids or endocannabinoids by preventing their breakdown so they last longer at the receptor site, making more strikes and thus extending their effects. You can read more about this here.

Hemp oil extract is becoming increasingly popular as people discover its many scientifically proven benefits, including improved exercise performance and recovery, balancing the immune system, and relieving discomfort, inflammation, stress, worry, PMS, blood sugar imbalances, digestive issues, or low immunity.

It has become a go-to remedy in my integrative/holistic psychiatric practice especially in one of my areas of specialty – helping individuals recover from the use of substances of abuse as well as taper off psychiatric medications, easing and shortening the transition by enhancing much-needed neurotransmitters, such as dopamine for focus, GABA for calming, and serotonin for mood maintenance.

Disease Claims: According to the Dietary Health and Supplement Act of 1994 (DSHEA 1994) we cannot make disease claims on a supplement, only structure and function claims. Therefore, I can’t really expound in more detail on the formula’s specific benefits. I know it’s frustrating that labels don’t say what a supplement is able to do, except that it “can restore a good mood or a sense of relaxation” versus “relieves depression or anxiety.” Or “relieves discomfort” instead of “relieves pain,” which is considered a medical term. So, we live with it. It was a fiercely hammered-out compromise, made to keep supplements separate from prescription and over-the-counter drugs. The alternative at that time was not to have the supplements available at all!
