We suggest that the average male Veteran (weighing 185lbs) use the 900mg Tincture at minimum. The recommended dose is 1mL per day. The best place to take the oil is under the tongue, holding it there for 30sec before swallowing. If you have localized pain, you can mix a few drops of the oil with a lotion and rub it on the affected area as well. Please click here for how to take a tincture.
