Dosing and Deliveryof CanniMed Medical Cannabis
The amount of medical cannabis that you take, or your dose, will vary based on the type and severity of your condition, the level of experience you have with cannabis, and the delivery method you choose for your medicine.
The one important recommendation to follow: Start low and go slow.
You will likely need to experiment with a few different products before finding the product and dose that works best for you.
It is important that clients rely on advice from their healthcare practitioner to employ sound clinical judgement for their specific conditions. This information is not intended to be a substitute for the advice of a healthcare practitioner nor a recommendation of any particular treatment plan. Please consult with your physician or healthcare practitioner for professional advice pertaining to your particular disease state.
Dosing for medical cannabis is still relatively uncertain. Further efficacy and safety studies are required to determine an exact dosing regimen for individuals and their specific conditions.
Whether smoking, using a vaporizer or ingesting edible oil, the general guideline is to start low and go slow. Patients should start with a very low dose and stop therapy if any undesirable or unacceptable effects occur.
Cannabis Oil Equivalency Factor
All of the CanniMed® Oils have a very simple equivalency factor of:
0.78 gram dried cannabis = 60 mL cannabis oil
For ordering purposes, each 60 mL bottle of CanniMed® Oil is equivalent to 0.78 grams listed on a patient’s 30 day order limit.
The equivalency factor, however, should not be used as a guide for dosing.
