This oil is not decarboxylated which preserves the natural CBD & CBDa ratio concentrations.
Routes of Administration
~100mg (1/2 turn as described on Endoca RAW Hemp Oil (2000mg) CBD+CBDa (20%))
The oil flavor is not unpleasant; although I made the mistake of not keeping all of it in the front of my mouth under my tongue and a fair bit moved quickly to the back of my throat which irritated the very back of my throat. I highly advise making sure all of this oil is kept under the tongue in the front of the mouth for as long as you decide to let it absorb for.
~50mg (1/4 turn)
This time I kept the oil under my tongue in the front of my mouth. This was not at all irritating or unpleasant.
I did not notice much of an effect from this particular product when administered orally for my particular condition. After two separate attempts at an oral dose with less discernible efficacy than what I experience when using this out of a vaporizer, I found it more beneficial and cost effective to use this with a vaporizer when dealing with my specific conditions. However, when using this for CBD’s apoptotic, antimetastatic, antiproliferative, and other anti-cancer properties my experience becomes moot as those effects are well documented by various studies and one cannot “feel” those effects.
Dosage—Several doses were tried over a period of several weeks to test for consistency. Very small drops of oil that range from approximately 1/8th the volume of dime up to approximately 1/3rd the volume of the surface area of a dime. When the larger quantities were placed in the vaporizer they often produced multiple doses that were used throughout the day. I am approaching the use of this strictly for medical purposes. I say this to put the following into context: the flavor is acceptable. This is by no means something one will be using because of its flavor; however, the flavor does become more palatable with regular use and its consistent effectiveness makes it well worth acquiring a taste for.
Efficacy – This product has been consistently performing WELL beyond my expectations. I have seen an instant improvement in appetite, sleep, mood, sense of well-being, anxiety, depression, and overall quality of life since I began using this product. Even my family has taken note of the difference in my life. I have used other brands of CBD/Hemp oil on the market for quite some time now have spent WAY more per milligram than this product can be purchased for; and all of the other products came nowhere close to the performance and consistency of this product. I live in a location where cannabis use for medical conditions is stringently limited; therefore these types of products are my only legal way to have access to the medicine I require for the aforementioned benefits. That being said, if cannabis were to become legal tomorrow I would still continue to use this product. This provides me with all of the medicinal benefits I desire without the stronger sedation or other side effects that can sometimes be associated with cannabis use. I have been titrating down the use of a benzodiazepine anxiolytic for the past little while; and as of yesterday I have had my first full day without the use of this anti-anxiety drug in 2 years. As I write this I am halfway through my second day and things are looking quite well. Bravo Endoca! Thank you so much!
(P.S. I am not suggesting that anyone stop the use of their medication and I insist that any medicinal programs you embark upon be the product of oversight and consultation from your physician. My endeavor has been completed with a great deal of research and careful personal planning with the necessary oversight required to make such a delicate transition.)
***UPDATE*** I am now primarily using Endoca’s raw help oil for the treatment of my condition and use anxiety medication no more than a couple times per week at most if absolutely necessary; (i.e., if I am in a prolonged situation where I cannot make use of a vaporizer and/or if I ingest any food allergen cross contaminated foods as I am highly sensitive to gluten and dairy products)

Syringe Container tips and tricks
The opening on the syringe is ideal for dosing in sublingually appropriate doses; however, when vaporizing this is not the case and far lower doses are active and sufficient. Also, placing large (upwards of 50mg) doses into certain vaporizers, like the launch box, goes beyond the capacity of the concentrate tray and can lead to mess and waste. Therefore, marking the syringe dial appropriately can make it easier to dispense far smaller doses for vaporizing applications. The dial on the syringe used for accurately measuring doses is cast into a “bumped” shape around the circumference of the ring. The number of “bumps” around this ring is divisible by 3. Knowing this we can make a mark between any 2 bumps and then count out every 3 bumps and make another mark just as is detailed by the thick red lines in the picture below. Marking the dial in this manner provides us with the dial divided into eighths (8 equal parts). This allows us to measure out doses at around 25mg effectively. Since 1 half turn is 100mg; 1 quarter turn is approximately 50mg, and our 1/8 divisions should allow us to dose out approximately 25mg easily. In the manufacturing of the plastic containers a small blemish remains on the front and back of the container within the “red circle” of the picture below. The can be used as a reference to line up the marks made on the dial when measuring out doses to increase the accuracy of your dosing. Turning the dial 1/8th of a turn and pressing in on the plunger with the tip pointed upwards should cause a small glob to protrude from the opening at the tip. If done slowly and carefully it should not be enough to spill out. Slowly turning the dial back in the opposite direction so that it is tightening down on the syringe will cause the glob to be pulled back into the syringe. In this way you can cause a very small amount of oil to remain protruding from the opening of the syringe and you can then dab the end of the syringe into your vaporizer’s chamber to apply the desired amount of product with very little waste. Turning the dial just 1 or 2 “bumps” beyond the marker in the “red circle” instead of a full 1/8 turn (3 bumps) will cause a smaller amount to come out and is another viable option for dispensing even smaller amounts.
Value – Cost Per Milligram of CBD
If you purchase this product you'll pay $0.14 per milligram of CBD.
This product contains 2000 milligrams of raw CBDa total. According to Endoca the suggested serving size is 100mg and should be taken twice a day which leaves you with about 20 servings per container. If this suggested serving is actually followed here are some realities to using this product:
|Standard||Cost Per Serving||Cost Per Day||Cost Per Month||Days Product Lasts||Units Per Month|
*COR Serving Standard is 25mg of CBD taken twice a day.
Unless you are dealing with an extreme condition, there is no need for such a dosage. All manufactures use different serving standards, this is why CBD Oil Review (COR) has created the COR Serving Standard. The COR Serving Standard was created to level the playing field so that all products serving sizes could be compared equally.
**As serving size or dosage of CBD differs for each person, it is best to start small and gradually increase until you experience the desired result.
