This is one of the most common questions right after “What is CBD?” CBD is currently relegated to the status of nutritional supplement and therefore no dosage information can be provided from CBD product manufacturers like ourselves. There have been many studies on CBD but many more still need to be done to convince the “powers that be” to allow the prescribed use of CBD as a medicine. In the meantime, you are still able to find how much works for you, albeit in a more roundabout way.
There are many factors in how CBD can affect you differently than it affects others. First of all, we are all different people with unique bodies and therefore unique endocannabinoid systems. The endocannabinoid system is the portion of our nervous system that CBD binds to when it enters our bodies. Since all of our bodies are different, they will have different amounts of these receptors which will change how much each person will want to take. Furthermore, we all have varying health and genetics which also play large roles in dosage. Some people produce more or less of the enzymes that break down CBD in our liver and prevent it from reaching our bloodstream.
The best way to start using CBD is to try a small dose, wait roughly an hour and take note of how you feel. Have any desirable effects occurred? Do you feel the same or different and in what ways? Do you feel nothing at all? Keep in mind you will not feel any sort of high or euphoria from CBD. If you feel your desired effects have not been attained then try increasing the dosage a small amount and repeat this process. Again, start small and add little by little until you have reached your desired dosage so as not to waste CBD with too large a dose that provides little extra benefits. Once you have found your desired level, take note of the end amount you have consumed to use as reference for the next time you need to take more. The effects of CBD can last varying lengths of time based on metabolism and intake method. Waiting 4-6 hours is a common interval used before consuming more.
Given all the information, news, and legal theatre surrounding CBD it’s no wonder why so many are confused on the benefits, uses and dosage of this compound. It’s important to remember that we are all different and to find the proper amount to take requires some experimentation. Start small and work your way up to find that perfect dosage that works for you. In order to accurately track the amount of CBD you are consuming, it is important to use a CBD product that has accurate formulations and strict quality control. We use pure CBD isolate from hemp grown in the United States of America that is meticulously blended with our high quality ingredients to bring you accuracy and consistency you can trust and rely on. Ultimately, when it comes down to using CBD it is important to listen to your body, keep track of how much was consumed, and notice what is happening when you take it.
