If you are unfamiliar with CBD, it's important to know that the oil has to build up in your system. That can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, with the average being 2 weeks for those with moderate to severe pain...so don't get discouraged. You will know instinctively when it's reached it's optimum level in your system and can adjust your dosage up or down daily at that point, depending on your level of pain, anxiety or your particular issue.
It's recommended, that you start out with 5mg - 10mg as a daily dose, while it's building up. Most start out with 10mg. It's also recommended, that the bottles of flavored or unflavored oil be taken sublingual...holding it under your tongue for 60 - 90 seconds, before swallowing. It gets into your blood stream faster this way and you will have better/quicker results.
If you are using one of the terpenes: Sweet Relief (for pain); Sweet Dreams (for sleep); or Focus (for concentration), they should be taken sublingually also, before your CBD oil, to enhance the CBD's effect.
The capsules can be opened and the oil taken sublingual, too. If any is left in the capsule, swallow the cap with water. AON's CBD is too good to waste!
The syringe's oil may be rubbed along your gumline or placed under your tongue. Rubbing on your gumline is the easiest method for the syringe oil.
The wax may be inhaled or ingested. It requires its own special pen and should not be used in your e-juice pen that you vape with. The effect, when inhaled, is almost immediate. When ingested, it may be taken sublingual or put in a gel capsule and swallowed. Due to the high concentration of CBD in the wax, use it sparingly. A dose is about the size of a pin head.
The e-juice, which is vaped (inhaled), works quickly and is wonderful for an anxiety/panic attack or breakthrough pain; but, needs to be taken much more frequently if being used daily instead of the sublingual oils.
The salve works very quickly on muscle knots; sciatica; and severe pain in smaller areas, herniated disc's, for example.
I hope this long read has been helpful. Again, welcome to this supportive group that is really more an extended family...without the drama! lol

General Advice to Assess How Much CBD to Take
Even with the wave of states legalizing medical marijuana, many physicians are still reluctant to prescribe cannabinoids because they are not sure what dosages to prescribe. After all, most medical schools never cover CBD Cannabidiol in their pharmacology courses. Medical scientists are just now developing dosing schedules for medical marijuana, medicinal hemp and their extracts, including CBD.
CBD-rich hemp oil comes in various concentrations and forms, including liquid hemp oil, hemp oil as a thick paste, oil in capsules, sublingual tincture drops or sprays, salves for topical use, edibles as in candy or gum and CBD vapor from vaporizers similar to e-cigarettes.
Everyone Is Different
What you will find on this page is meant to be a guideline, a starting point of reference. The fact remains that everyone is in a different place and will react differently to their CBD dosage. As serving size or dosage of CBD differs for each person, it is best to start small and gradually increase until you experience the desired result.
How to Use CBD Oil
How to Take CBD Oil
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. This step is important because some of the CBD taken will be broken down by the digestive system. Other oral methods include capsules, mouth strips, and edibles such as chocolate bars.
Many people also enjoy using CBD oil via vaporizers or inhalers as this is a near instant delivery method that can be quite effective. Others use CBD oil by taking it through the skin via lotions, balms, creams or patches. There are many ways to take CBD oil, what matters most is trying a few different approaches and seeing what works. Again, everyone is different.

Cannabis and ADD/ADHD
In the eyes of popular culture, cannabis consumers aren’t exactly models of concentration and cognitive performance. So when a small group of researchers began exploring cannabis as an alternative treatment for attention deficit disorders, there was, of course, some scoffing and skepticism. Nevertheless, with so many medical marijuana patients swearing by its ability to promote focus in place of prescription stimulants, these doctors sought to take a closer look at the scientific basis of this counterintuitive phenomenon.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, better known as ADHD, is a controversial diagnosis marked by distractibility, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Adults are more likely to be diagnosed with attention deficit disorder or ADD, which lacks this hyperactivity characteristic but is similar in other ways to ADHD. More than one in 10 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, a figure that has grown exponentially in the last 50 years. Since 1957, doctors have been treating ADD/ADHD patients with psychostimulants like Adderall, Ritalin, and Concerta — medications that are molecularly similar to drugs like methamphetamine and cocaine.
Antonio Rodriguez, diagnosed with ADD/ADHD at age six, had been among the masses prescribed stimulant medications. “I remember having headaches all the time to the point where I wasn’t able to sleep,” Antonio said, adding that his appetite was also nonexistent until treating with cannabis; and not only was cannabis lifting the stimulant side effects, it improved Antonio’s ADD/ADHD symptoms. “For the first time ever, I was in the state where I could really get my mind together.”
Having only been taught the dangers of using cannabis, Antonio was cautious about trying it for the first time. “I got scared about the whole ‘addiction’ side of cannabis,” Antonio said. “I was waiting for the moment my body asked me for weed, but it never happened.”
For those coming from an anti-cannabis background, explaining its therapeutic properties to friends and family can be difficult. This was no less true for Antonio, despite the fact that his performance in school had won him college acceptance with a scholarship. The reality is, there’s far too little research on cannabis and ADD/ADHD to know exactly how the two interact. Still, the data and results emerging from initial investigations show that there is more digging to be done.
One main physiological irregularity of ADD/ADHD is the brain’s shortage of dopamine, a chemical neurotransmitter involved in cognitive processes like memory and attention. Medications like Adderall and Ritalin stimulate dopamine, thereby promoting concentration, but come with a myriad of unpleasant side effects and withdrawal symptoms.
Dr. David Bearman, a figurehead of cannabis research, has studied the relationship between the cannabinoid system and ADHD and discovered potential therapeutic value as cannabinoids interact with the brain’s dopamine management systems.
“Cannabis appears to treat ADD and ADHD by increasing the availability of dopamine,” Dr. Bearman wrote. “This then has the same effect but is a different mechanism of action than stimulants like Ritalin (methylphenidate) and Dexedrine amphetamine, which act by binding to the dopamine and interfering with the metabolic breakdown of dopamine.”
Put simply, the compounds found in cannabis, called cannabinoids, could potentially correct the dopamine deficiency observed in ADD/ADHD patients if dosed appropriately and administered safely. Even in its raw form, cannabis is able to provide the mental slowdown necessary for concentration in many patients. Boring and arduous tasks become more manageable, and mood swings tend to level out. But why?
“The most accepted theory about ADHD rests on the fact that about 70 percent of the brain’s function is to regulate input to the other 30 percent,” Dr. Bearman says. “Basically the brain is overwhelmed with too much information coming too fast. In ADHD, the brain is cluttered with and too aware of all the nuances of a person’s daily experience.”
While most medical professionals agree that anecdotal evidence is not sufficient in recommending cannabis for ADD/ADHD, researchers are optimistic about the potential cannabis is demonstrating. When political blockades let up and further research resumes, it could be that cannabinoid therapy provides a frontier for safer, more effective ADD/ADHD medication. Article By: BAILEY RAHN, Leafly
Children as young as 12 to be treated with cannabis for anxiety and mental health issues in Australian trial
Children will be treated with medicinal cannabis for anxiety and mental health
Trial is being run by former Australian of the Year, psychiatrist Patrick McGorry
Designed for mentally ill young people aged 12-25 through Headspace centres
Participants will get 2-4 daily powder capsules of cannabidiol for 12 weeks
European studies show effective in adults for treating anxiety and depression its
Pilot study will start in June with a larger project planned following initial results
Children as young as 12 who suffer from anxiety and mental health issues could be treated with medicinal cannabis, in an Australia-first trial.
The trial is being led by former Australian of the Year, psychiatrist Patrick McGorry, and implemented through Headspace centres, reported the Daily Telegraph.
Due to start in June, it will target young people aged 12-15 years who suffer with mental health issues.
Children as young as 12 who suffer from anxiety and mental health issues could be treated with medicinal cannabis, in an Australia-first trial
Participants will receive two to four daily powder capsules of cannabidiol for 12 weeks and the impact on their condition will be monitored.
Cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive component of cannabis.
In the past, European studies have shown it is effective in treating anxiety and depression in adults.
The drug reportedly interacts with receptors in the brain to regulate fear and anxiety-related behaviors.
The trial is being led by former Australian of the Year, psychiatrist Patrick McGorry (pictured). Participants will receive two to four daily powder capsules of cannabidiol for 12 week
Professor McGorry is receiving private philanthropic funding through the Lambert Initiative for the trial, the first of its kind in the world looking at the effects of cannabidiol in young people.
Prof McGorry told Newscorp the trial is for people who have not had success with traditional therapies.
The trial, one of the first in the world for youth, will be implemented through Headspace centres for people aged 12-25 years
He said alternative medicines to antidepressants were desperately needed.
'We need to get innovative and look at alternative therapies to help reduce this burden that is growing among our youth.'
Paul Amminger, the senior research Fellow at Orygen, who is conducting the study with Professor McGorry, said if the treatment was successful it would help thousands of anxiety sufferers.
