So now that you have your medicine...now what? Many people do not know where to start when it comes to dosing. It is a very individual thing, everyone is different as to how they react to medicines so this is guideline only! It would be a very wise idea to keep a daily journal of where you start, how many drops per dose you take, how many times per day you take that dose, etc... More is not always better!
Please read the last paragraph of this blog as it is very important!!

A patient’s sensitivity to THC is a key factor in determining
Appropriate dosages for a CBD-rich treatment regimen.
CBD (Cannabidiol) THC (tetrahydrocannabinol)
Non-psychoactive Psychoactive – may produce Euphoric or dysphoic effects
Cannabis therapeutics is personalized medicine. The appropriate dosage depends upon the person and condition being treated.
Accept 100% responsibility for your problem and credit for the cure: You are responsible for your quality of health and happiness. You are responsible for finding a successful treatment. You are responsible determining the correct do
Chose the medium for the medicine:
Raw solid cannabis, poor
Juiced raw cannabis, poor
Concentrates, good but risky
Choose a pathway:
Digestive: good, but takes time
Rectal or Vaginal: excellent
Begin with a low dose: especially if you have little or no experience with cannabis.
Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose.
Use the same dose and ratio for several days. Observe the effects and consider if you need to adjust the ratio or amount.
Don’t overdo it: Often with cannabinoid therapeutics, “less is more.” Cannabinoid
compounds have biphasic properties. This means that higher doses of CBD can sometimes be less effective than low or moderate ones. Also, too much THC—while not lethal—can increase anxiety and mood disorders.
The universal approximate dose of cannabinoids for mammals: 5 to 10 milligrams per 100 pounds of Human body weight.
Potency or milligrams of cannabinoids may not be on the package labels
Initially follow the recommended dosage on the package
Experiment with small doses in 5-hour intervals
Increase doses gradually until the optimal approximate dose is achieved
Maintain dosage level when the effective level is reached
Change dosage as the conditions of the disease changes:
Management of dosage will change as the indicators change. Stay sensitive to the effectiveness of dosages.
Cannabinoids are stored in our system therefore reducing the dose is usually the best tactic for successful treatment.
Avoid increasing dose due to the inverse effects generated by excess cannabinoids in the system. Research has shown that when our cannabinoid receptors are full over time, the body decreases the receptors made so it is advised to take a 48 hour break from the medicine to clear it out of your system. This should be done once a month.
