Pain Related Ailments Treatment Guideline

This treatment guideline is to be used for products, cannabis oils, that are only endorsed by Medical Cannabis Dispensary. It is to be used for pain related ailments, including;

Most of the people we treat choose the cannabis oils we endorse over conventional western medicines that have let them down. No one likes to get high! If the oils are used correctly this can be avoided altogether.


Cannabis oils are best kept in the fridge when not being used. If this is not possible, store in a cool dry dark cupboard. The oils have a shelf life of many years.


For dosing using a tincture, do not dilute in water or juice. It’s easiest to accurately dispense the drops from a tincture into a teaspoon and then consume. Otherwise drop directly into your mouth.

CBD is bitter and if you are “uncomfortable” with, dislikes, the taste then you can take with a little honey to sweeten it.

Cannabidiol (CBD) Oil

Cannabidiol (CBD) refers to Cannabis oil with a high content ratio of CBD which promotes general good health and well-being, benefits neurological disorders, and treats various ailments. CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory and effectively treats the pain associated with inflammation. CBD is not psychoactive, doesn’t get you ‘high’, but unlike the nutrient supplement Hemp CBD products sold at health shops, it has THC in it in order to render it effective. Without THC it is useless – also called the entourage effect.

Added Benefits of CBD Oil

CBD cannabis oil, taken alone, effectively treats the following conditions;

The medical cannabis CBD strain used in the CBD products MCD endorses is a 20:1 strain (CBD to THC).

Dosage: Start on 5 drops 3x a day. It’s always best to keep CBD in your system. If one is unable to dose 3x a day, twice will have to do.

THC Oil (Delta 9)

If you experience severe pain, you need THC and unfortunately
 THC can make you ‘high’. However, if you micro-dose using a 
tincture in drops, it will allow you to build up a tolerance over a 
short period of time (days). This will enable you to take the necessary 
dosages to deal with the pain. There is no one-size-fits-all
approach with THC cannabis oil dosing – it’s different for everyone. For
 most people 5 (10mg) drops per dosing achieve sufficient pain relief. Most, if not all 
people we help, have to get on with day-to-day life and can’t afford to be high.

The medical cannabis THC strain used in the THC products MCD endorses is a 12:1 strain (THC to CBD).

Dosage: Start on lowest recommended dosage, 2 drops, to be safe, and increase as you feel comfortable until the desire effect is reached. If you feel “high” or abnormal, decrease dosage and remain on same dosage for 72 hours before increasing it again. Dosing twice a day, morning and later afternoon, is normally sufficient. If you have trouble sleeping and you’re not using CBN as a sleep aid, then a third dosage before bed is advisable.

Although more convenient, only in extreme cases are higher dosed THC capsules necessary. Capsules start at 25mg (13 drops). Very rarely, only when all else fails, does MCD advocate vaping. Vaping will get you high but in extra-ordinary cases it can offer the much needed pain relief.


Another unfortunate side effect for those who suffer from pain is to have trouble sleeping. CBN in very small dosages will enable you to have a good night’s sleep.

Dosage: Start on 1 drop half hour before bedtime, it’s often sufficient. If the desired effect is not reached you can increase 1 drop at a time. Often less is more with CBN. Please be wary.


MCD’s topical of cannabis infused lotion balm and essential oils that are absorbed through the skin can be applied to painful aching areas. The topical is not always necessary but is optional extra for those wanting to use one.

We recommend using a topical, a starting dosage of:

Apply topical 3 x daily, a light coating to effected areas, allow to air dry before covering.

Our topicals are 1000mg of THC cannabinoid extract base combine with essential oils in a 30ml ointment jar.

Recommended treatment:

We recommend using a tincture, with starting dosage of:mcd cannabis oil tincture

  • CBD: 5 – 10 drops : 3 times a day.
  • THC: 2 – 5 drops : 2-3x daily. – Start on 2 drops 2-3x a day. Increase every as one feels comfort to do so and or every 48  to 72 hours by 1 drop per dosing. Most often, depending on how severe the pain is, pain relief is at 5 drops 2-3x a day. One carry’s on increasing as need be. This way one avoids getting high.
  • CBN: 1 – 5 drops : half an hour before bed. (Start on 1 drops its often sufficient.)
  • Topical: Although often not necessary one can apply a topical to affected areas.

Tinctures (1:10) are 1000mg of cannabinoid extract in 10ml MCT, 500+ drops per bottle (dropper top bottle). Each drop is 2mg.

MCD is unable to comment on “other” cannabis oils whose origins are unbeknown to us. We recommend reading about cannabis oil in South Africa before making any decisions.


MCD endorsed cannabis oils are all made from medical grade organic cannabis (flowers) only. The oils are processed in laboratory conditions using the latest technology similar, if not the same, equipment used in the legal states of America. Co2 based extraction cannabis oil is the latest, cleanest, toxin (solvent) free and most expensive extraction technique requiring specialised machinery. The entire process from soil to oil is controlled, after all what you put in is what you get out. The oils are not lab tested.

Side Effects

Everyone’s tolerance varies, rather be safe than sorry. Start low and increase dosages until desired dosage is reach. This way one avoids getting high altogether. If too much THC, THCA and or CBN oil is consumed too quickly a “high” or “stoned” feeling could be experienced, a general change in perception, euphoria (heightened mood), and an increase in appetite. Short term side effects may include a decrease in short-term memory, dry mouth, impaired motor skills, red eyes, and feelings of paranoia or anxiety. In the event of getting high it’s best to take a nap and sleep it off. The “feeling” will pass.
