This product is most suited to instances where an individual wishes to inject infrequently and is seeking substantive support for GH production rather than a maximum or near-maximum increase. This is because the flat blood levels it provides do not match up well with pulsatile dosing, which is needed for greatest effect. The steady levels can provide very good support for natural growth hormone pulses, however.
Relatively rarely, adverse side effects associated with excessive GH use, such as pain from nerve compression (such as carpal tunnel pain), excessive water retention, or reduced insulin sensitivity can occur from CJC-1295 use. The cause is stimulation of a greater amount of GH production than is suitable for the individual case. The solution is to discontinue use until the problem is resolved, and to reduce dosage when resuming use.
CJC 1295 is typically provided in vials containing 2 or 5 mg of lyophylized powder, though the amount can vary. The contents should be reconstituted by adding a convenient amount of sterile or bacteriostatic water. If for example 2 mL is chosen and the dosing of the vial is 2 mg, the resulting solution then has a concentration of 1 mg/mL, or 1000 mcg/mL.
At time of dosing, an insulin syringe is used to draw and then inject the desired amount. In the above example, a 1000 mcg dose would require a volume of 1 mL, or “100 IU” as marked on an insulin syringe.
As with Mod growth hormone GRF, CJC-1295 use can be combined with use of GHRP, but if using a GHRP, for superior results I recommend combining Mod GRF with it rather than CJC-1295.
For maximal effect in increasing growth hormone production, rather than CJC-1295 I recommend Mod GRF 1-29 in combination with a GHRP, but for support of natural GH production CJC-1295 can provide a convenient solution with injection frequency of only twice weekly. Many have been pleased with the results from CJC-1295 use in bodybuilding, performance enhancement, and “quality of life” applications.
