Dosage :: For Wild As The Wind pure Hemp Essential Oil

1000mg = 1ml
1ml @ 0.77% CBD = 8mg (rounded up)
Thus our recommendation is as follows:
3 drops pure Hemp Essential Oil with a heaped teaspoon of hard-set organic coconut oil. (The MCT in organic coconut oil makes the Hemp Essential Oil more bio-available.)
Take twice daily.
***Whilst there is absolutely no consensus on dosage, the most commonly advocated daily dosage of Hemp Essential Oil, at the concentration that the Wild As The Wind pure Hemp Essential Oil is at, is 3 drops in a carrier oil in the morning and another 3 drops in the early evening.
Hemp Essential Oil should be diluted with edible organic coconut cooking oil and left on the tongue to melt into the roof of the mouth, or left under the tongue to melt sub-lingually.
How Does It Work?
The CBD in Hemp Essential Oil interacts with our endocannabinoid receptors, which are present throughout our body.
Load Dosing Hemp Essential Oil
To reactivate a dorment endocannabinoid system it may be necessary to load dose the Hemp Essential Oil during the first few days of taking it.
This means taking up to 5 times more Hemp Essential Oil than the normal dose, for the first five days, split into a morning and evening dose, taken at the same times as you would take the normal daily dose.
After this initial load dosing is complete you can then revert to taking the normal daily dose of Hemp Essential Oil with organic coconut oil, or preferably, you will ascertain your personal optimal maintenance dosage.
Achieving Your Optimal Maintenance Dosage Of Hemp Essential Oil
Once the desired effects have been achieved by the normal daily dose of Hemp Essential Oil this indicates your endocannabinoid system is more fully engaged. And, that means you can start experimenting with reducing your dose, slightly reducing it in increments in order to establish your optimal maintenance dose level.
This will differ for everyone, so we advise reducing your dose by one drop for at least a week. If the health benefits of the Hemp Essential Oil are still optimal, then reduce your dose by another single drop for another week or so. Continue this process until your final reduction in dose results in a deterioration of health benefits.
This means that you need to increase your daily dosage by one drop per day to return to the dosage that delivered you with the optimal health benefits at the lowest maintenance dosage possible.
The reason why we revert to a maintenance dose is because CBD from the Hemp Essential Oil consistently builds up in the body, thereby optimally meeting the needs of your super-charged endocannabinoid system. Not only will this allow you to experience relief from symptoms more quickly, it will also extend the period of time that the benefits will be felt
The maintenance dosage is ultimately what stabilises everything…. Allowing you to achieve optimal health benefits at the minimal dose and cost possible.

I first took Hemp Essential Oil when I was feeling tired and suffering from a cough which I had for weeks. Within minutes of taking a few drops of the hemp essential oil my cough had practically stopped. I take a few drops twice a day and I feel this also really helps me to relax my mind.
I initially started taking Hemp essential oil every day to help with the pain in my hands. My knuckles [used to] swell up and I found everyday things to be a struggle. Since taking the oil the pain has definitely eased enormously.
I find taking Hemp Essential Oil has really helped balance out my hormones, I am definitely less moody!!
Since starting out on Hemp essential oil my mood has improved incredibly, I feel more relaxed and less irritable. I wish I took this a long time ago.
