Maximize The Benefit From Cannabis Sprays

In general, when a patient is told to take 2 sprays or 3 sprays of a cannabis extract, they take all the sprays under their tongue and wipe it around the soft pink tissue in their mouth. Here is what I believe to be a better method to maximize the medicine actually absorbed.

Increased saliva production can have a negative intake on the absorption of the beneficial Cannabis constituents.  When you use multiple sprays in the same location, more saliva is created which dilutes the compounds.  The patient is also ‘forced’ into swallowing the excess saliva, minimizing contact with the blood vessel rich oral mucosa, making this form of administration potentially useless.

A better form of administration for consideration is to use one spray on the inside left cheek, wipe it around the soft pink tissue inside your mouth and wait a minute or so.  Make sure your mouth is not full of saliva and swallow if necessary.  Do your next spray underneath the tongue or the other side of your mouth utilizing the same means as the first spray.  With each additional spray, alternate locations and wait a minute.
