If you’ve never taken hemp extract before ingesting it is an easy place to start, You’re probably familiar with and maybe already using capsules and pills so taking hemp extract this way won’t feel too different. Plus monitoring dosage is easy with capsules since they come in pre-measured sizes.

Dosage is important and having a consistent concentration makes it easy to find out what works for you. Many customers start with our 25mg SoftGel capsule and slowly increase in 25mg increments until finding their ideal dosage. Capsules can take 45 minutes or longer to work itself into your system, and then last for several hours.

You can also just take hemp oil, which is called a tincture. Generally, you consume this by placing it under your tongue and holding it there for up to a minute. Some people even use it in their food, or add a few drops to their favorite smoothie recipe similar to our Recovery Protein mix. Why choose a tincture? It’s easy to adjust your dose adding or subtracting a few drops, and it might work a little faster.

The third indigestible option is an edible such as chewable gummies. These small, tasty morsels can be found in a variety of flavors and sizes yet still pack a hemp extract punch.

Oral products such as our SoftGels, tinctures, and Gems have a systemic effect, meaning they work on your whole body. For people taking hemp extract for their anxiety, sleep issues, arthritis, or other whole-body issues this is great. But for those looking to help with a dodgy knee or tight back, a cream might be preferred.
