Individuals respond differently to Hemp derived Extracts/Oils, even similar types of people who have similar conditions may respond differently. Finding the right amount of Hemp Extract/Oil to use will require a little trial and error. This is based on our genetics and personal differences. One person may require just a few drops, while another person may require large amounts. People who are in better health tend to require lower amounts to help them maintain balance and function optimally, compared to those that may be far off balance or further into a diseased state. Some individuals will require larger amounts to restore balance also called “homeostasis” to the body. Once they become healthier they can then lower the amount they use. As Medical Cannabis Expert Dr. Sulak D.O. with Healer.com states “Start low & Go slow”.
Pre-clinical research indicates that full spectrum Hemp Extract/Oil is effective at much lower doses and has a wider therapeutic window than a CBD isolate. “The therapeutic synergy observed with plant extracts results in the requirement for a lower amount of active components, with consequent reduced adverse side effects,” a 2015 Israeli study concluded.

Again it is important to emphasize, the amount of Hemp Extract/Oil to use varies from person to person. Dosage is based on individuals goals and physician recommendations. Some people choose to use Hemp Extract/Oil to achieve optimal health, while others choose to use Hemp Extract/Oil to help alleviate physical symptoms associated with ill health. Before using Hemp Extract/Oil products, it is recommended you consult with your physician.
Although there are many different delivery methods of Hemp Extract/Oil products (vapes, edibles, candies, oils, topicals, etc.) many recommend using Hemp Extract/Oil orally and topically.

If necessary, Hemp Extract/Oil can be taken 2-3 times daily.

Furthermore, information presented here is not meant as a substitute for or alternative to information from health care practitioners. Much like the consumption of poppy seeds may lead to a positive drug test for opioids, the consumption of certain hemp products may lead to a positive drug test for THC. Most workplace drug screens target THC and do not detect Hemp Extract/Oil, Premier US Hemp products do contain trace amounts of THC, however, the amount of THC stored in fat cells depends on each individual person’s metabolism. Although the risk is low, Premier US Hemp cannot guarantee that THC will be absent in a drug test. We strongly suggest consulting your health care provider before consuming any hemp products if you are subject to drug testing. Premier US Hemp and its associates, assumes no liability in association with persons knowingly purchasing and using Premier US Hemp products who are subject to employment drug testing or screening.
EDUCATION & RESEARCH
A 2017 report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine found conclusive or substantial evidence that cannabis or cannabinoids are effective:
- For the treatment of chronic pain in adults
- As anti-emetics in the treatment of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting
- For improving patient-reported multiple sclerosis spasticity symptoms
The report also found moderate evidence that cannabis or cannabinoids are effective for: Improving short-term sleep outcomes in individuals with sleep disturbance associated with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, and multiple sclerosis.
Increasing but limited clinical data demonstrate that cannabinoids are safe and effective in the treatment of seizure disorders, Tourette syndrome, and several geriatric conditions.
Clinical studies involving the therapeutic use of cannabis demonstrate improvements in anxiety, depression, and neurocognition.
