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 RELIEF 1000mg
0.25ml = 4mg CBD | 4mg CBG
0.5ml = 8mg CBD | 8mg CBG
0.75ml = 12mg CBD | 12mg CBG
1ml = 16mg CBD | 16mg CBG
- GreenMed RELIEF 2000mg
0.25ml = 8mg CBD | 8mg CBG
0.5ml = 16mg CBD | 16mg CBG
0.75ml = 24mg CBD | 24mg CBG
1ml = 33mg CBD | 33mg CBG
- GreenMed RELIEF 4000mg
0.25ml = 16mg CBD | 16mg CBG
0.5ml = 33mg CBD | 33mg CBG
0.75ml = 50mg CBD | 50mg CBG
1ml = 66mg CBD | 66mg CBG
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 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 .25ml every morning on the measured dropper.
Take 0.25ml under the tongue 1x per day for 4 days.
After 4 days (if needed), increase to 0.5ml under the tongue 1x per day and continue this dose for 4 days.
After another 4 days, Increase to 0.75ml under the tongue 1x per day if needed and continue this dose for 4 days.
Continue increasing in .25ml increments every 4 days until you feel like you are getting good results. If you experience any side effects, lower the dose or discontinue use. Side effects are typically mild and could include, lethargy, upset stomach, sleeplessness.
Just as a point of reference, some people respond great to 0.25ml daily. Some need 2-3ml daily 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.

Why Would I Use a Tincture?
For patients that are serious about getting the best results, a tincture offers dosing flexibility, better absorption than edibles, and is more cost effective in the long run.
Using a measured dropper (standard on all of our products) makes it easy to track what dosage is effective for you. You can also change the dosage as needed by using the measured dropper as a guide.
- 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
Time for tinctures to take effect: 30 – 60 minutes
How long effects last: 4 – 6 hours
Why Would I Use CBG?
Cannabigerol (CBG): Considered the mother of all cannabinoids, CBGa (the acidic precursor to CBG) is the first cannabinoid produced by a maturing cannabis plant. From there, most of the CBG turns into CBDa or THCa, so CBG is found in much smaller amounts in hemp and cannabis.
CBG is similar to CBD in that it is non-intoxicating, neuroprotective, and anti-inflammatory. Researchers believe CBG may have several potential uses including anxiety, inflammatory conditions, intraocular pressure, and cancer. Unfortunately, there is not enough evidence to claim CBG is effective for any of these conditions quite yet, but research is still in preliminary stages.
Here at East Coast, we typically add CBG in with CBD for patients that need something a little stronger. Anecdotally, patients seem to get a better effect, possibly due to the entourage effect as well as CBG acting on the receptors where CBD helps to produce and regulate endocannabinoids. Also, CBG seems to be stimulating or energizing to many users. Since the literature on CBG is preliminary or pretty much non existent, there aren’t any FDA indicated uses at this time, but we believe this may change in the future.
CBG Best Uses:
- Patients with more significant symptoms
- Stomach issues
