How to Dose CBD Oil

How do you know how to dose CBD Oil ,how much CBD to take for yourself, in order to get relief from pain, insomnia, anxiety, low mood, and other things? It takes a little personal focus and experimentation to figure it out. Research is not yet conclusive, but it is showing that you really can’t take too much. In other words, it will not harm you. YAY!!

Let’s start with Dovetail Ridge Farm’s CBD Salve. It is 100% of pure CBD goodness, 1000 mg. of extract from USDA Certified Organic Hemp Flowers that are grown here on farm. You simply unscrew the lid, stick your fingers in to get some, and rub it into the area that is hurting. It works really fast, and can be applied as often as needed. It sometimes gives lasting relief for a long time . Most often reapplication is needed every 12 to 24 hours. It absorbs quickly, and has a natural, earthy smell. It REALLY works. No dosing necessary. Just rub it on.

The CBD Oil is different. It is most often an individual experience figuring out how much CBD OIl it takes for you to get the results you need.

First , let’s talk about drug testing. Our CBD Oil is a full spectrum tincture. This means all the cannabinoids present in the plant at the time of extraction are present. This includes the .3% or less of THC that is allowed by law. This very small amount can throw a drug test. You need to be aware of this.

Let’s look at a link which talks about dosing CBD. The information in this link matches up to experiences Dovetail clients have had, and is backed up by research. Each person might need a different amount of CBD OIl to meet their needs. There are instructions for mow much CBD OIl to take on our label. This is a guideline. Some of you will need more, some will need less. The rule of thumb is, start small, and add or subtract to your CBD dose as needed. It works. This link also has a lot of other useful information about CBD.

Please visit to shop for CBD Oil and CBD Salve, as well as tea and flower. We are planning to add a stronger tincture this coming year, as well as a tincture for immune support.

CBD Harvest 2022

Dovetail Ridge Farm has started our CBD harvest for 2022. Sour Candy Kush and CBG plants are already hanging in the barn. Mountain Flower and CBDV will be cut soon. Here is our Field Master, Joe Chasnoff, hanging the first CBD plant in the barn. Our finest plants from our CBD Harvest will be used to make our CBD Oil, salve, tea and flower. to see more pictures in our gallery, and to shop!

The plants will hang in the barn for up to a month, then be brought inside to finish the drying process off inside with a dehumidifier. Plants are dried to a 10-11% moisture level so they can safely be stored prior to processing.

The plants reabsorb moisture if it is very humid, so the CBD harvest has to be monitored carefully to insure proper moisture levels before packaging and storing the plant material.

Some plants from our CBD harvest will be hand trimmed for smokeable flower, and the rest will be tumbled in our Tommy the Tumbler, dubbed Sir Tommy by our friend Donna Lavelle, to remove dried leaves and stems. is the address if you’d like to learn more about Sir Tommy.

After plants are cut, hung, dried, and trimmed, the plant material is stored in giant paper bags, and then vacuum sealed in big plastic bags. They are stacked and stored in a temperature controlled room until ready for sale and processing. Each bag is considered a batch, and is sampled and sent to our 3rd party lab, Fouser Environmental services to be tested for safety and cannabinoid content, which includes making sure the plants are legal according to federal and state regulations. See and for more information.

Dovetail CBD harvest is always an exciting event. We look forward to sharing the fruits of our labor of love with you!
