All GreenMed products come standard with a measured dropper. This makes it easy to establish the right dosage for each individual.
For each different strength tincture, dosing is as follows:
- GreenMed SLEEP 1000mg
0.25ml = 4mg CBD | 4mg CBN
0.5ml = 8mg CBD | 8mg CBN
0.75ml = 12mg CBD | 12mg CBN
1ml = 16mg CBD | 16mg CBN
- GreenMed SLEEP 2000mg
0.25ml = 8mg CBD | 8mg CBN
0.5ml = 16mg CBD | 16mg CBN
0.75ml = 24mg CBD | 24mg CBN
1ml = 33mg CBD | 33mg CBN
- GreenMed SLEEP 4000mg
0.25ml = 16mg CBD | 16mg CBN
0.5ml = 33mg CBD | 33mg CBN
0.75ml = 50mg CBD | 50mg CBN
1ml = 66mg CBD | 66mg CBN
If you are new to using these types of products, we suggest starting with the 1000mg option first. This cost the least and is a good way to experiment and find the right dose that works for you.
If the product works well, you can buy the larger dosages to last longer and save lots of money in the long run!
This product is intended for daily nighttime use. Everyone experiences a slightly different response, so our best advice is to start with a low dose and increase slowly until you reach the desired effects.
We urge patients to commit to using any product consistently for at least 30 days to give enough time to evaluate how the product is working.
If you are new to taking these types of products, start with 0.25ml on the measured dropper 1 hour before bed
Take 0.25ml under the tongue 1 hour before bed.
If needed, increase to 0.5ml under the tongue 1 hour before bed.
If needed, increase to 0.75ml under the tongue 1 hour before bed.
Continue increasing in 0.25ml increments until you feel like you are getting good results or experience undesired side effects. Side effects are typically mild and could include, grogginess, upset stomach, sleeplessness.
Just as a reference, some people respond great to .25ml and some respond to 2ml or more. There are many factors that dictate the effective dose like tolerance, body weight, and severity of symptoms. Effective dosages are different for every individual and can range from 2mg – 300mg or even higher. The best thing you can do is listen to your body and contact us directly with any questions.
Why Would I Use a Tincture?
Medicinally speaking, tinctures are typically our go-to as a prophylactic (daily use). Tinctures are best suited for daily use due to easy dosing and long acting effects. Patient’s can use a measured dropper (standard on all of our products) to calculate the right dose. They can also change the dosage as needed. For patients that are serious about getting the best results, a tincture offers dosing flexibility, better absorption than edibles, and are more cost effective in the long run if they are using daily.
Time for tinctures to take effect: 30 – 60 minutes
How long tinctures last: 4 – 6 hours
- Easy to calculate dose using measured dropper
- Flexibility to change dose up and down as needed
- Faster acting than edibles or capsules
- Whole body effects that last
- Some don’t like oil texture
- Not the best option for “as needed” issues
- Slightly shorter acting than edibles or capsules
Tinctures are best suited for:
- Patients that need to titrate dose up or down
- Someone looking for a daily use supplement
- Someone ready and willing to put in work to get results
Why Would I use CBN?
Cannabinol (CBN): Similar to CBG and CBD, CBN has a number of potential benefits. CBN can be found in “old weed” and is a product of THC degradation. Very limited data exists on the effects of CBN, but there have been animal studies that lead researchers to believe it has a more sedating effect. Also thought to be anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and anti-bacterial, CBN is most commonly found in nighttime sleep aids.
CBN is a great product to use in tandem with CBD and CBG. Typically we suggest CBD and/or CBG during the day and a product with CBN an hour before bed. Again, the data is limited and the FDA has not indicated CBN for any of these specific uses, so it’s best to experiment with CBN yourself to see what kind of results you get.
CBN Best Uses:
- Nighttime use
