I'm a little confused about how one should measure dosage? mg, ml, grams.
CBD oil seems to have no consistent standard. Any thoughts?

I take 55mg of both CBD and THC.

It's discussed in various threads.

Do a search.

Greg,
How do you feel you are doing? Michael has been on the oil and a pill, made by a friend of ours, for almost 4 months. I believe it has virtually stopped his progression.

I fell in November and lost alot, but I believe the CBD/THC has kept my overall progression slow.

Great, I'll be anxious to hear if you notice any differences taking it.

My PALS does 4 squirts after each meal. No THC in it. It has seemed to keep him stable.

You point out the problem. What's a squirt?

Whether it is a concentrate, tincture, edibles or capsules it should be dosed in mg's so you know exactly what you are taking and not guessing.

I take 3/4 of a teaspoon twice a day of CBD hemp oil,
I have been taking for a month and it seems like symptoms are not progressing as fast
I hope this helps.

hey rhino, maybe you could put your diagnosis date in your information so it shows, and tell us a little about yourself, your presenting symptoms, length of time with ALS and then how CBD/THC is helping... as your first post, without knowing any kind of background it doesn't tell us much.

We can then welcome you properly too!

I was diagnosed with ALS in Jan 2016, I have had symptoms since Jan 2014
I am 54 yrs old male, and was very athletic and strong before symptoms started.
Up until being diagnosed I was a Tug Boat Captain and in my younger days I was a deep water construction Diver on a offshore pipeline in Hawaii.
I was misdiagnosed in 2014 as having bulging discs in my c-4 thru c-6 cervical spine,
After fusion surgery my symptoms progressed rapidly, my head /neck was very weak
I was rapidly loosing the ability to lift anything as my arms were very weak, so far my legs are strong and speech only mildly affected, I have lost aprox 90% of my muscle mass in my arms and my shoulders and back.
Before taking the CBD/RSHO oil on March 3 2016 I was loosing weight "30 lbs"
My arms were noticibly getting weaker and stiffer
My saliva production was increased
I felt depressed.
Since starting CBD/RSHO Oil 3/4 teaspoon twice daily and smoking medical marijuana
I have gained 3 pounds "munchies"
My saliva production is controlled "cotton mouth"
Attitude and outlook is much improved I am joking and laughing again "HIGH"
My arms are still weak however I do not notice the progression as I did before.
Wishful thinking ? Maybe
But I definatly feel better, my wife "my angel" says i definetly look better and move better.
I hoped this helped
