GUIDE TO TAKING HEMP LIVELY PRODUCTS
How do I take my product?
If you’ve never taken Hemp Lively Products before, a good starting point is between 20mg-50mg per day. Please see the Dosage Chart for specific intake amounts based on weight. If you are “Medically Sensitive”, please take half of the recommended dose. The mg/ml and mg/gummy are on the label. (1 ml = 1 dropper). Take half in the AM and the other half in the PM 1-2 hours before bed.
How long do Hemp Products take to work?
Phytocannabinoids take time to build up in your system so you’ll need to take it daily in small amounts and give it at least 2 weeks before you’ll see the full effects. After the first 2 weeks, you may want to adjust your daily intake as needed.
How to Take Hemp Oil
We recommend sublingual administration. Measure the desired amount using the dropper. The Glass Pipette is marked with ¼ ml markings and the mg/ml (mg/dropper) is located on the label. Place the end of the glass pipette under your tongue and squeeze dropper top to release oil under the tongue. Allow the oil to stay under your tongue for 30 seconds or as long as tolerated. Swallow any remaining oil.
How to Take Hemp Gummies
Place the desired number of gummies in your mouth. Chew until liquefied. Move liquid under the tongue if possible. Hold for 30 seconds or as long as tolerated and swallow the remaining gummy/liquid.
How to Use Hemp Topicals
Follow instructions on label. Rub into desired areas as needed. If it is your first time using the product, try a small amount in a visible area first for a few min. If no negative reactions occur, finish the application.
For intake of oral Hemp Products such as Hemp Oil Tinctures or Hemp Gummies, we recommend using the following weight-based dosing guidelines, in which the initial dose is determined by how much the client weighs and any increases are increased by 50% of the initial dose in Step 1. The dose is measured in milligrams of the Total Reported Phytocannabinoids, per pound of body weight, per day. This can be written as mg/lb/day.
Starting dose: If you this is your first time taking a Hemp Product or are currently taking another brand, Start at Step 1.
Monitor symptoms: Phytocannabinoids take a few weeks to build up in your system. Monitor Symptoms for a Minimum of 2 weeks before Increasing to higher steps.
Increasing Dose: Upon Improvements, STAY AT YOUR CURRENT DOSE to maximize improvements of that dosing level. Only increase if Needed.
Worsening Symptoms: Upon an increase, If symptoms worsen, decrease total daily dose to previous step. Consult your physician if symptoms continue to worsen.
IF YOU ARE “MEDICALLY SENSITIVE”, SEE BELOW FOR RECOMMENDATIONS.
Potential Interactions, Drug Testing, Legal Issues and more.
DRUG INTERACTIONS WITH AEDs
If you are on an AED, anti-epileptic drug, including but not limited to Clobazam, Valproate, Levetiracetam, Falbamate, Lamotrigine, Clonazepam, Zonisamide, Topiramate, Lacosamide, Phenobarbital, Rufinamide, Carbamazepine, Stiripentol, Oxcarbazepine, or Ethosuximide, there may be a potential interaction with Phytocannabinoids. This interaction has shown the levels of these drugs to increase or decrease by up to 50% with the presence of Phytocannabinoids. Please consult your physician first if you take any AED, or any other prescription drug prior to taking Hemp Oil.
Be sure to dose Phytocannabinoids at least two hours apart from pharmaceutical medications. Take ½ the Daily Dose in the AM and the other half in the PM a few hours before Bed.
METABOLISM & INTERACTIONS
Phytocannabinoids are predominantly metabolized in the liver and is a known inhibitor of liver enzyme P450 2C19 (abbreviated CYP2C19). This enzyme is responsible for metabolism of several pharmaceutical drugs. Phytocannabinoid use may therefore cause fluctuations in serum levels for certain medications. If the client uses treatments which utilize these pathways, the standard protocol for Phytocannabinoid users is to measure baseline liver function tests (LFT), other labs of concern, and medication levels including desmethyl levels and then to repeat these assessments frequently thereafter. If unusual symptoms begin to present, the provider should determine whether Phytocannabinoids are potentiating the side effects of current medication.
Hemp Lively’s Whole Plant Products derived from hemp contain trace amounts of THC. With daily dosing, customers may test positive for THC in urine and blood. If you are concerned about failing a drug test, please purchase one of our Broad-Spectrum T-Free Hemp Oils which have all of the main Psychoactive Phytocannabinoid removed.
HEMP AND LAW ENFORCEMENT
The hemp plant is in the same family as high-THC cannabis, and smells the same, therefore law enforcement may identify hemp as an illegal substance.
MEDICALLY SENSITIVE DOSING
To Determine if you are “medically sensitive”, you must meet one or more of the following criteria: (1)sensitive to medical interventions, (2)on pharmaceuticals, (3)has LGS, (4)has only absence seizures, and/or (5)has only myoclonic seizures
Dosing for “medically-sensitive” is HALF OF THE REGULAR DOSE. Find the Correct dose on the Dosing Guidelines Chart and Divide that Number by 2 or multiply by 50%.
The therapeutic dose is determined by symptom relief and may or may not be lower than dosing for adults who are not medically-sensitive.
Phytocannabinoids cross through the placenta. Therefore, fetal exposure risks cannot be ruled out. There are currently no studies supporting the use of Phytocannabinoids while pregnant. We encourage clients to speak with a doctor or midwife for further advice.

WEANING OFF PHTYOCANNABINOIDS
It is important to note that Phytocannabinoids have a reported cumulative effect. Therefore, weaning should be slow and include frequent monitoring. Successful weaning has been reported by decreasing dosing by no more than 10% every 2-4 weeks, unless signs of toxicity, increased side effects, drug interactions, or an increase in medication blood levels are observed.
WEANING OFF PHARMACEUTICALS
Customers may be eager to wean current medications. Weaning must be determined by and occur under the supervision of a licensed and certified Healthcare Practitioner.
IMPROPER WEANING OFF CERTAIN PHARMACEUTICALS CAN CAUSE DEATH.
