More on Titrating CBD and THC Whole Plant Extracts

This information and dosing schedule is meant for patients with serious pain or a serious degenerative neurological disorder and do not respond to low doses of whole plant CBD. This should always be discussed with the patient’s physician

1. Start patient off with 5 mg whole plant CBD. This initial CBD extract should have minimal or modest THC in it to assure no significant psychoactivity
2. Increase the whole plant extract by 1 mg/day until 10 mg for MS/neuro/pain and 20 mg for “adjuvant therapy”.
3. Once the CBD dosing is stable, the patient is evaluated. If they have significant remaining pain or spasticity, THC Dosing is begun
4. Patients begin taking their THC by using a THC rich extract. They can easily dose 1 or 2 mg and add it to their CBD “water”.
5. The patients increase the THC dose by 1 mg every other day until they get to a 2:1 CBD:THC ratio.
6. Re-evaluated at that point
