There is little scooper comes with the Holden's Hope paste. They "suggest" you start at one of those scoops three times a day. But everyone is different. I take mine all at once at bedtime because my seizures are nocturnal.

From what I have experienced, the worst that can happen if you take a little more of it than you need is that you will feel like sleeping in the next day. So don't be afraid to experiment a bit and find the dose that is perfect for you. You would have to eat the whole jar to even "catch a buzz".

I have a Huge Question about Holden's what are the side effects ? With my medicine I have have one costly s.e. that I would give anything to get rid of . IF this stuff is that good maybe I should give it a try too .

The only side effect I have experienced with Holden's Hope was, when experimenting with the dosage and erring on the side of a bit too much, feeling sleepy the morning after.

Once you figure out the optimal dose for your unique body, it is side effect free.

...I wondEring if get through customs dem drug dogs pick up on anything.Any ideas how to get it.i really want try it..
`

Customs should be OK.
I quote the following from the FAQ of the Hemp Paste online store associated with Canna International, the creator of Cannabis Paste and Hemp Paste, apparently the sales arm of the Holden's Hope people:


Do you ship outside of the country?

Yes, if CBD is legal in that country. There is a 6 jar 3oz minimum (free shipping), though as it will cost us over $110 to ship it, NO coupons are allowed on over seas purchases.

Are Holden’s Hope and Canna Doggy legal to ship anywhere in the US?
Yes. The pharmaceutical industry is passing false propaganda to discourage people from buying hemp products. You will NOT go to jail possessing our products.
[Emphasis added]

BTW I'm very grateful for the link to a provider of Holden's Hope. Having some success with CBD oil, and eager to try an improved, professionally-produced product. Many kudos to you, Steve Coats! :woot:

In Oz there has been the push of medicinal cannabis to be used as effective pain relief to end stage cancer patients and to also manage Multiple Sclerosis and Epilepsy.

Its move into mainstream is going to be interesting.
I sincerely hope it will help more people to access it to help their situation.

Some people oppose it on irrational grounds as they perceive ANY cannabis use as immoral and there has been no interest in looking at the evidence.

I have noticed a huge decrease in my seizures since I started on Holdens Hope ( hemp paste). ... Again the hemp paste has been the savior you could say as it's the only thing so far that has worked for me.

Thank you!

Steve
My Holden's Hope hemp pasted sample should arrive today. I am very hopeful.
Rick Simpson Oil seems to have reduced the frequency and recovery time from my seizures -after half a dozen anti-seizure meds over nearly a decade failed to help noticeably. By my understanding, Holden's Hope should be even better.
Many thanks for this clue Steve.

what type of dose you you guys/gals take per day....???
From HempPaste.com Q&A page on Holden's Hope:
What dosage do I take?
FDA will not allow us to prescribe a dosage. Body weight, chemistry, diet, and many other factors can affect CBD results. In each box you will find an orange medical spoon that holds about 1 gram of paste. For example: Our 3oz jar contains over 2500 milligrams of CBD. 3 flat spoons is about 3 grams which equals 87 mg of CBD. This is a pretty big dosage of CBD compared to what you will find people(CBD specialists) are recommending as a dose. At 7 cents per milligram our cost is less than half the price of our competitors. A 3oz jar has about 85 scoops or 85 grams by weight. 1 flat (packed) scoop has 29.4 mg of CBD. Read this article Top Ten Secret Shopping Results for CBD Hemp Oil
Source: https://hemppaste.com/index.php/q-a

I will start out with one flat scoop a day and work up to three or more depending on my results. This is known as dosage "titration".

titration (tītrā´shən),
n incremental increase in drug dosage to a level that provides the optimal therapeutic effect.
Mosby's Dental Dictionary, 2nd edition. © 2008 Elsevier, Inc. All rights reserved.
Source: http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/titration

If the dose is too small, there will be no noticable effect. Then I'll raise dosage after a week or so.
If the dosage is too large, in my extensive experience with other cannabis preparations, the worst thing that will happen is I will get sleepy.
"Your mileage may vary."

Update: My symptoms seemed to improve conspicuously starting about three days after I started taking Holden's Hope - 1 scoop per day only (of 3 baseline), and improved further with increased dosage -about 3 scoops a day - after about a week.
I ran out of my $60 sample jar about four days ago. (It seemed to last 10-14 days but given the dates of my posts here it must have been longer.) I find my symptoms are now conspicuously worse - back to where I'd expect to be without Holden's Hope.
I'm not cured, but I'm much encouraged. The symptoms are eased, at least.
This is the first time a treatment has helped in the nearly 10 years -and near a half dozen? different meds - since I was diagnosed with TLE.
Just ordered another jar. Will experiment with larger dosage.

I'm so pleased it is working for you.

The CannaPaste people are actually having a sale right now that runs through tomorrow (April 4). It is a BOGO (buy one get one) so in effect it makes the stuff half the price. If you are going to order some I would suggest getting online tonight. :)

Thank you AlohaBird!
I missed your post, but the morning after I made my second order the founder of Holden's Hope "Brad" phoned to ask where I'd heard about it. (Here.)
Then he mentioned the two-for-one coupon I hadn't used and said he'd apply it to my order! A hard-won 100 investment gratuitously doubles! :woot:

Further update: I should get my second order this week but I will probably not use it pending yet another night at the sleep hospital for tests, so as not to confound the results. (I have a parallel diagnosis of primary insomnia/primary apnea.)

Hi Cetacean (love the name BTW),

Brad is really a cool guy. I talked to him on the phone on April 4 and he said he would extend the BOGO sale for a few days for anybody who got the tip from CWE. I'm so glad you got in on it.

I have had really good results with the Holden's Hope paste not only for seizures but also for getting to sleep and staying asleep. I hope it will help you in that department too. A good night's sleep just makes everything in life better.

Hi Folks,
My Epileptologist wants me to try the medical marijuana since I'm drug resistant to all seizure meds out on the market. If I may ask do you have to stop all seizure meds before you start the cbd? Thanks for your time and May God Bless You!

Sue
