The oil will absorb in minutes.Cannopathy oils come with a roller-ball application.You may find for whole body effects such as stress, anxiety, sleep etc. that one drop is enough or an equivalent patch of oil approximately 20mm in diameter.For localised pain areas, you may need larger coverage however the oil may spread more than expected.Most people only require equivalent to one drop of oil as using Cannopathy Oils for pain relief. It is not about the quantity of oil, but rather, activating your body’s natural endocannabinoid system. How do I use Cannopathy Oils? -Pain:Apply to the primary pain location first, wait 15-30 mins.

Our products, although probably safe, are ‘Not to be taken’ and are not designed to be ingested or taken internally. They are not evaluated as a food and probably don’t taste the best either. Why apply Cannopathy to the feet, inner wrists or behind the ears? The short answer is that these high blood flow and rich receptor areas and pathways have a fantastic uptake for most people.The long answer below:Trans-dermal application has been found to be most beneficial when using Cannopathy products. The feet have the largest pores on the human body. Traditionally when we lived in nature without shoes or using shoes minimally, we would absorb many of our minerals and traces of nutrients via walking on the earth. This is why therapeutic foot spas filled with magnesium and herbs are still popular today. Do you wonder how powerful the uptake is through the feet? If you rub raw chopped garlic or Eucalyptus oil on the soles of your feet, within seconds/minutes you'll taste it in your mouth! Research has found that many of the therapeutic benefits are lost when the oils are consumed. This is due to the first-pass effect where the liver metabolizes what we digest, sometimes to such an extent that only a small amount of the digested therapeutic goodness from the oils emerge from the liver to the rest of the circulatory system greatly reducing the bioavailability. Our aim is to maximize the benefits by allowing the body to circulate and absorb as much of the oil as possible and we found that the application through the feet, inner wrists or behind the ears, is the most rapid method and has the highest potential to reach the areas of the body requiring treatment. How long will one bottle last me when I use it? Our 10ml bottles potentially last for several months or longer depending on the frequency of use and areas being covered. How long will a bottle last me if I don’t use it? Keep the bottle out of direct sunlight or high heat areas to preserve the goodness of the oils.It is preferable to use the oil within 12 months of purchase. How long does the effect last? Keep in mind that everyone is different. However, most people have reported duration to be between 6-8 hours or better. Few people may require an application more regularly and that is completely acceptable. Some others have reported only needing an application every other day. Does it work for everyone? Keep in mind that everyone is different.The currently reported feedback from people is extremely high in favour of expected or better than expected outcomes.There are in fact a minority that may not notice or may not experience expected results or in some cases, need stronger applications or other medicines or treatments.There is no thing that can be used for everything.
