Dosing


Important Dosage Instructions and Treatment Information

Stoney Girl Gardens is leading the industry with research and development of strains, proper cannabis oil dosages, treatments and applications. If you are a new user please consult the information below for the most effective method of treatment.

Oral Treatment is divided into two areas; Maintenance and Full Immersion.

A maintenance dose is usually no more than 1/20th of a gram (100mg) of cannabis oil daily. This is considered a low dose and has little to no psychoactive affects. A 1/20th dose will effectively control seizures, chromes, MS, Lupus, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Autism, Chronic Pain, Migraines, Nausea, Cramps and many more conditions. Low doses have also been effective in curing Breast Cancer. We have been able to control seizures in small children with just 1/60th of a gram, however we recommend 1/20th of a gram dose for most children. This low dose has little to no psychoactive affects.

A Full Immersion treatment is recommended for those with stage 4 or aggressive cancers and tumors. A full immersion treatment requires higher doses, up to 1 gram daily for a period of 60 to 90 days.

The oil begins working immediately. You will see the affects in days and weeks, not weeks and months. We have seen the effects on the destruction of tumors begin in literally hours.

It is important to remember that you should apply the oil treatment as close to the tumor or condition to be treated as possible. If the tumor is a surface tumor, then you should apply the oil directly to the skin. If you are dealing with carcinoma or melanoma then you should apply it directly to the area affected.

Carcinoma, Melanoma, Spider Bite, Surface pain, Surface Tumor: Apply oil directly to affected area.

Internal Tumor, Cancer, Leukemia, Eating Disorders, Sleeping: Apply Orally

Liver Cancer, Colon Cancer, Vaginal Cancer and Tumors: Suppository

Cannabis Budwig Protocol – Make your oil 100 times stronger, faster and more effective. Recommended for aggressive, late stage or cases where regular treatment is not working

Topical: For topical applications the oil can be used as is or it can be mixed into lotions and oils. Mix 1 gram for every 16 ounces of lotion or oil.

Cooking: When coking add a measured amount into your existing recipe. It is easily measured for predictable and consistent dosing. 10 doses per gram. 1 gram for 10 expected portions.

Elixirs: The oil can be re-hydrated into any alcohol solution to be used as a tincture. Glycerin and fine oils such as grape seed oil can be used to dilute the Whole Plant Extract Oil for oral administration. Flavors may be added.

Preparing the Cannabis Oil (Dilution for Dosing)

Follow the Ratio Chart below. It is always best to start with a low dose and work up to a higher dose. To make a 20:1 you will add 20 parts coconut oil to one part cannabis oil. Note the Units/Gram shows the number of doses per gram of cannabis extract. A 20:1 ratio will make 21 doses.

Recommendations for Beginners

This oil is highly concentrated and may require dilution to allow you to build up tolerance and become accustomed to the effects. If you have never used cannabis products you should follow the following recommendations. Severe overdose may occur if too much oil is consumed. Overdose is not harmful however very uncomfortable with a feeling of sea sickness which will dissipate within a few hours. To avoid this follow the dilution recommendations below.

It is recommended that a low dose of 1/20 of a gram be administered as a start. If your wanting to work up to 1 gram per day you will need to build a resistance first.

Finding Your Tolerance Level

Every individual is different and has a differing level of tolerance. Tolerance level is the amount of oil you can tolerate comfortably. Your tolerance level will build as you use the oil. In other words, you will be able to take more oil without feeling the effects after a few days or weeks.

To find your tolerance level take one capsule of a 20:1 dose and wait 2 hours. If you don’t feel anything then go ahead and take another capsule, then wait another 2 hours. Repeat this process until you start feeling affects then STOP. Count the number of capsules you took that day. This will help you in finding the correct maximum dosage you should start with. If you take more than 2 in a day then you can increase your dosage mix instructions to the 10:1 or 1/10 gram capsules.

Some people can only take one capsule in a day, others can take as many as 12.

1 ML = 1 CC = 1 Gram NO CONVERSION!



5 ml or 5 gram syringe shown

Use 1/20th gram of Cannabis Oil To Start – since measuring a small amount of cannabis oil is difficult we recommend mixing Coconut Oil with the cannabis oil at a rate of 20 to 1. This will allow you to measure one gram of coconut oil/cannabis oil mix into a gel capsule for easy administration. A double ‘00’ capsule holds approximately one gram of mix.

Start by getting some Organic Coconut Oil that is refined and expeller pressed. You will find this in the Health Food section of your local market. Coconut oil will assist the cannabis oil in metabolizing in your body and assists in a faster onset of relief.



Using an Oral Syringe, measure 20 ml or grams of Coconut Oil into a container. A 10 ml syringe works great, filling the syringe 2 times with coconut oil. Add ONE gram or ml of Cannabis Extract Oil.

Shown here is the work area with 2-10cc syringes (one filled with coconut oil), 1-1cc syringe of cannabis oil, a mixing jar with oils already measured, a bowl of ’00’ 1 gram capsules, and a bowl of coconut oil that has been warmed (in background).



Keep Cannabis and Coconut Oils cold in mixing jars before heating. There are 20 grams of coconut oil and one gram of cannabis oil.



Lightly warm the mixture by placing the container of mix in a pan of hot water. Stir mixture while warm. We use a small 4 o jar with a lid. This keeps the water out of the mixture and allows us to shake the jar to mix the contents well. The cannabis oil will bond to the coconut oil. Below is a photo of the properly heated mixture.



Fill a clean oral syringe with this mixture while it is still warm. You now have a mixture that is 1:20 ratio. Fill the one gram “00” capsules while still warm. Caps will store for months.







Photo above shows 2 – 10 gram syringes filled with a 20:1 mixture ready for caps

Photo below shows caps being filled.



Increasing the Dose

Increase dosages as possible and as needed by making a mixture of 1:10 and then following dosages after that of 1:5 and then later working up to taking the oil straight without being mixed. Increase dosage as possible up to one gram of pure oil per day. We recommend one half gram in the morning and one half gram 2 hours before bed time. It may take several weeks to up your dosage and it’s ok to push but maintain a comfort level.

Oil may be taken in the evening for those that work during the day. Taking a dose at 7pm will allow the oil to become affective and work during the hours of sleep, allowing you to wake up and go to work and operate machinery.

  1. Dosage Level One (1:20): Take one capsule and wait 90 minutes. If you don’t feel effects take another capsule and wait another 90 minutes. Continue taking capsules to find the level you can tolerate and still feel comfortable.
  2. Dosage Level Two (1:10): Mix 10 grams of Coconut Oil to One Gram of Cannabis Extract Oil. Take one capsule daily and work up to 2 capsules daily.
Dosage Level Three (1:5): Mix 5 grams of Coconut Oil to One Gram of Cannabis Extract Oil. Take one capsule daily and work up to 2 capsules daily.

  1. Dosage level Four (1:1): Mix 1 gram of Coconut Oil to One Gram of Cannabis Extract Oil. Take one capsule daily and work up to 2 capsules daily. We recommend one half dose in the morning and one half dose 2 hours before bed time.
Dosage level Five (1:1): Use the Cannabis Extract Oil without mixing or dilution. Increase dosage up to 1-3 grams per day. We recommend one half dose in the morning and one half dose 2 hours before bed time.Gel Caps are used to administer the oil. Gel caps may be found at your local vitamin store. Recommended sizes are as follows:

‘0’ = ½ gram

‘00’ = 1 gram

‘000’ = 1.5 grams

1 ML = 1 CC = 1 Gram



In the photo above, each package is only 1 gram of cannabis oil shown in 1:1, 5:1, 10:1, and 20:1 dilutions. Below the capsules is a 1 gram syringe and a 5 gram syringe. One gram of cannabis oil makes 21 capsules at 20:1

90 gram jars = 1890 caps or close to 6 years of medicine in maintenance mode or 90 days of cancer immersion treatment at one gram per day.

Video Instructions and Information on Making the Oil

Video Notes: The video shows Cannatonic bud. Oil made in this video proved to be less than effective due to the strain we used. Normaly we use our own exclusive strains as they are much more effective. You do not have to use flowers. You can use leaf, trim, etc, however your return may be less and the concentration may not be quite as high, however it does work. The oil we made that saved Mykayla’s life was made from our exclusive strains. We use multiple strains, not just one. The Strains you use make the difference in the speed of effectiveness.

There is a short video at the end of this article that I could not embed....

Cannabis Under The Tongue Gives Rapid Relief and Lowers the High

How you take your cannabis medicine will determine how well it treats your condition. Sublingual, or under the tongue, will give fast relief.

Back in the day, before all this legalization stuff, most people got their cannabis by smoking flower or hash. Today, we’ve got more options than most of us can keep track of: from dabbing to vaping to candies to topical lotions and gels. One method of consuming cannabis that just may be the best bet for patients is sublingual application, or under the tongue.

Not many people know this is the proper way to take oil and tinctures, but as consumers become more educated and patients seek better options, sublingual cannabis products are becoming increasingly prevalent by the day.

Sublingual means “under the tongue.” Most sublingual cannabis products use a calibrated device to apply a liquid under the tongue, such as a dropper or spray.

But why would a patient choose to apply cannabis under the tongue instead of orally through an edible or a drink, especially since the latter method is simpler (and tastier)?

Advantage 1: Faster Onset
Sometimes, you can’t wait an hour or two like you would with edibles. Whether its chronic pain or insomnia, there are always situations where you need the medicine right now, no exceptions.

Cannabis applied sublingually bypasses the entire digestive system. Edibles must travel down the esophagus, into the stomach, then into the liver where these are metabolized by enzymes before finally entering the bloodstream.

Sublinguals, on the other hand, begin absorbing directly into the bloodstream through the mouth’s mucousal lining. This lining contains millions of capillaries (tiny blood vessels) that weave into the rest of the body’s circulatory system. Within five to ten minutes of sublingually taking cannabis, cannabinoids will begin interacting with the CB receptors to bring relief for your condition.

However, to get the full benefit of cannabis’s psychoactivity, your sublingual product should contain bioactive cannabinoids, that is – cannabinoids that have been heat- or chemically-treated to become decarboxylated. Otherwise, with non-bioactive cannabinoids, there will be no headiness.

Advantage 2: Bypassing the Stomach
The second perk to sublingual cannabis is that it skips the stomach. The stomach contains strong acids that break down its contents, including your cannabis. A portion of the cannabinoids and terpenes will degrade(read: be destroyed) while digesting, meaning you lose some of the good stuff by eating or drinking it.


Image credit: decade3d – anatomy online

Fortunately, most cannabinoids will survive the stomach’s acidic environment. Terpenes, though, are much more volatile and fragile, and many will disintegrate once they’re in the gut.

Since cannabis taken sublingually doesn’t end up in the stomach, your dose will be more accurate than if you ate it. This is because of bioavailability, a fancy term for how much of the cannabinoid dose actually end up reaching the target, like the brain. Research suggests anywhere between 4 to 12 percent of the THC we eat in an edible actually becomes bioavailable. So if you ate 10 mg THC, you’re actually only getting anywhere between 0.4 to 1.2 mg THC after it goes through all the digestive channels.


Image credit: Mongkolchon Akesin

Although sublingual cannabis hasn’t yet been thoroughly studied in humans, a 2006 study with rabbits found that roughly 10 to 15 times more THC became bioavailable through the sublingual route as opposed to the oral route. Take what you will from that.

Advantage 3: Bypassing the Liver Reduces the High
Depending on who you are and what you’re going for with your cannabis meds, the liver can be a good thing or a bad thing. If you’re looking for a potent high, then eating cannabis is a sure-fire way to ensure you’re getting a powerful effect.


Image credit: Magic mine

When THC enters the liver through the stomach, it becomes metabolized by special enzymes only found in the liver. These enzymes convert delta-9-THC (the one we all know and love) into 11-hydroxy-THC. (Caveat: smoking/combusting cannabis also converts some delta-9-THC into 11-hydroxy-THC; the liver doesn’t have the monopoly here.) The 11-hydroxy version of THC produces a much stronger high than delta-9, which is why people who eat too many edibles freak out and end up in the ER, whereas most folks who smoke too much just end up passing out on the couch.

Patients who need high doses of THC, but would rather not spend the day in a state of euphoria, under the tongue bypasses the liver so it never gets metabolized into 11-hydroxy-THC.


Image credit: Roxana Gonzalez

We know the liver also metabolizes a whole host of other cannabinoids and terpenes, but much of this research is still ongoing, so we don’t know all of the details of what happens when we eat cannabis.

So, should you go with edibles or sublinguals? That’s ultimately up to you. Long story short, if you want fast, reliable effects, go with a sublingual. If you’re willing to wait, and you know you can handle the ride, then go with an edible instead.
