Using hemp oil with a graduated dropper is a simple and precise way to ensure accurate dosing. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use hemp oil with a graduated dropper:
- Shake the Bottle: Before using the hemp oil, give the bottle a gentle shake to ensure that the contents are well mixed. This helps to distribute the hemp oil evenly.
- Squeeze the Bulb: Hold the dropper vertically, with the graduated markings facing upward. Squeeze the rubber bulb at the top of the dropper to draw the hemp oil into the dropper.
- Fill the Dropper: While still squeezing the bulb, dip the dropper into the hemp oil, allowing the oil to fill the dropper to the desired dosage level. The graduated markings on the dropper will help you measure the amount accurately.
- Release the Bulb: Once the dropper is filled with the desired amount of hemp oil, release the bulb gently to draw any excess oil back into the bottle. This helps to ensure that you have the correct dosage in the dropper.
- Administer the Hemp Oil: Place the dropper under your tongue, aiming for the sublingual area. Gently squeeze the bulb to release the hemp oil. Hold the oil under your tongue for about 60-90 seconds before swallowing. This allows for optimal absorption through the sublingual glands.
- Clean the Dropper: After administering the hemp oil, wipe the dropper with a clean cloth or tissue to remove any residue. This helps to keep the dropper clean and prevents contamination.
- Store Properly: Ensure that the bottle is tightly closed and stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Following the storage instructions provided with the product will help maintain the quality and efficacy of the hemp oil.
Remember to consult the product’s packaging or the manufacturer’s instructions for specific dosing guidelines. Start with a lower dosage and gradually increase it as needed, based on your individual needs and the advice of a healthcare professional.
