How to choose your CBD dose
1. Estimate the dose you need based on your weight
Like most substances, people with larger weights need more CBD to experience their effects. With this in mind, a good rule of thumb for determining the appropriate CBD dose is based on the individual’s pain level, taking 1-6 mg of CBD per 10 pounds of body weight.
2. Gradually increase from low dose
Each person has a different chemical reaction to the CBD because of differences in constitution, past medications, supplements, and personal experiences. The same dose of CBD may have different responses for us. It is therefore important to determine your initial dose based on your weight, test your body’s response to it, and then gradually increase it while continuing to monitor your body’s response until you find the perfect dose for you.
3. Consult your doctor
If in doubt, please consult your doctor, especially if you have a medical condition. Although most doctors don’t have much experience with the CBD, they can have a good understanding of your body’s response to the CBD and can provide you with the amount of CBD that suits your situation.
Due to the wide range of dose possibilities, there are three dose range that can be used for different conditions:
For doses ranging from 0.5 mg to 20 mg CBD per day, microdose are recommended for the treatment of sleep, headache, mood disorders, nausea, post-traumatic stress disorder, stress and metabolic disorders, and as a daily dietary supplement.
For microdoses, we recommend 5% CBD oil. One drop of 5% oil contained 1.67 mg of CBD. You can take 3 drops 3 times a day, a total of 15 mg of CBD. Of course, you can adjust the dose to the tolerance level at any time.
10 mg to 100 mg CBD per dose per day. Standard doses are used to cope with pain, inflammation, autoimmune diseases, Lyme disease, anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, autism, IBS, arthritis, and weight loss.
For standard doses, we recommend using 15% or 20% CBD oil. One drop of 15% CBD oil contained 5 mg CBD and one drop of 20% oil contained 6.7 mg CBD.
For 15% oil: 3 drops 3 times a day = 45 mg of CBD.
For 20% oil: 3 drops 3 times a day = 60 mg CBD. If you take 6 drops 3 times a day, you will get 120 mg of CBD.
•Macroscopic (or therapeutic) dose
Large doses range from 50 mg to 800 mg CBD / dose / day. This applies to cancer, epilepsy, seizures, liver disease and life-threatening diseases.
For macrodose, we recommend using 30%, 40% or 50% CBD paste.
30% paste: 1 ml contains 300 mg CBD
40% paste: 1 ml contains 400 mg CBD
50% paste: 1 ml contains 500 mg CBD
What is the best time to take the CBD?
As with coffee for breakfast, many people like to take the CBD in the morning, other supplements, medicines, and coffee and breakfast. But not everyone has this feeling. Some people prefer to eat CBD before dinner at night. In most cases, it comes down to taking the CBD in the time period that is the easiest to remember and best for you.
Some people feel energetic and alert when taking CBD, so it makes sense to take the CBD in the morning. Others prefer to start taking them a few hours later when they are tired in the afternoon, so they can give them an upgrade and let them spend the day. On the other hand, some people say that they feel relax and sleepy after taking the CBD. In this case, it is best to take it at night or before going to bed.
The CBD does not have an ideal time to take. It all depends on what works best for you. The more you use the CBD, the more likely you are to develop patterns based on how it affects you at different times of the day. Of course, the easiest time to remember may be another factor.
Consistent with the dose of Cannabis oil, it maximizes the natural balance of Cannabis and the effectiveness of the human endocannabis system. Once absorbed by the body, the CBD interacts with endogenous cannabis receptors, a signaling network that mediates and maintains a balance between body processes. Cannabis receptors are present in the immune system and in the cells of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Upon activation, the receptor stimulates the chemical reaction to maintain our functional balance. An effective endogenous cannabis system promotes homeostasis by controlling appetite, sleep, mood, pain response, and immune response. Studies have shown that these balancing effects may be beneficial in the treatment of diseases such as epilepsy, anxiety, chronic pain, autism and Alzheimer’s disease. There are many reports that users notice these effects as early as the first time they take CBD oil. The CBD begins with a cannabis receptor interaction within a few minutes of absorption. Having said that, many of the benefits of the highly functional endogenous cannabis system are not immediately apparent. Like all cannabis, CBD accumulates in the body over time and can even stimulate an increase in cannabis receptors. With more cannabis receptors, the endocannabis system becomes more active and more sensitive to cannabis stimulation. Continuous daily doses of CBD oil help maintain a sustained level of CBD in the system and promote an effective endogenous cannabis system.
Some CBD users find it more desirable to take 2-3 times a day of CBD oil. Depending on the method of use, dosage and reminder, the full effect of the CBD may only lasts for 4-12 hours.
Those who rely on the therapeutic properties of the compound understand that maintaining a stable level of CBD by regularly taking CBD oil products may increase the effects of Cannabis and the effectiveness of the overall endogenous Cannabis system.
How to use CBD oil
Although many options such as chewing gum do not need to be explained, we have summarized these tips on how to take CBD oil:
- Liquid CBD oil/tank/extract: Drops or elixirs should have the recommended amount and the total number of milligrams of CBD listed on the package. From there, you can determine the number of CBD you want to ingest. Simply use a dropper to drop the correct amount of liquid under the tongue and hold the CBD oil in place for at least 60 seconds. The 60 second hold allows absorption through the blood vessels under the tongue, effectively bypassing metabolism. After 60 seconds, swallow the CBD oil.
- CBD E-Liquid / Vape Cartridges: Vaping is great for people looking for an immediate response. Because inhalation is the fastest response to the CBD and your body. Use vape to gently exhale the air from the lungs and slowly inhale into the mouth for 3 seconds. Then fill your lungs with extra breathing and hold for a few seconds, exhale when you are ready. With pre-filled, cost-effective vape pens and cartridges as well as more expensive evaporators, you can use CBD such as electronic liquid supplements.
- CBD food: The only step required for CBD food is to open and enjoy. This method of consumption will produce more extraction effects, and these effects will take longer than other options. For those seeking a lasting impact, eating food is good, or for those who want to use the CBD.
- CBD Separators/Concentrates: Anyone familiar with smoking or other cannabis concentrates such as wax and BHO will not be unfamiliar with this method of delivery. Just sprinkle some of them into the evaporator or water pipe, then ignite, inhale, and enjoy. We found this option to be very useful for those who wish to increase their regular consumption of CBD-rich cannabis plants or other medicinal herbs.
How often should I take the CBD?
Just like taking a CBD without the perfect time to take, there is no perfect timetable for everyone. Some people prefer to take it daily to maintain regular CBD levels in the body. Others tend to take it as needed to maintain their effectiveness in treating certain diseases. It all depends on your body and what you are taking.
Like many other substances, the CBD can accumulate in the body over time. It is believed that this can lead to an increase in cannabis receptors, which makes the entire endogenous cannabis system more acceptable and effective.
The length of time the CBD actually stays in the system depends on many factors, including the specific dose, overall weight, and body mass, and frequency of use. When considering all of these components, the time range can vary from a few days to a few weeks.
Choose your trusted CBD brand
A large number of CBD brands on the market may cause confusion for consumers. When you look closely, it is not difficult to understand why. Suppliers not only use different raw materials (CBD rich cannabis and industrial cannabis, different strains, etc.), but they also implement different extraction techniques.
Even more confusing is that many suppliers recommend overdosing, while other suppliers recommend only a small percentage of what experts think is effective.
As with fermented foods, slight natural changes are normal and can be expected in products such as CBD oils because it is made from living plants. Weather, soil and water all influence the biology of raw materials. While we validate the analytical certificate (and consider many other criteria during the review process), even the most reputable five-star company cannot control every variable in the organic process.
Although not as ideal as the CBD dose map, we have created an official service standard in the CBD Oil Review through extensive analysis of hundreds of products.
“Start low, go slow”
For cannabis treatment, in general, the “Start low, go slow” motto is suitable. This is also consistent with the article published in a European Journal of Internal Medicine. The authors are both doctors and health professionals and patients with sensible guidelines for judicious management of THC dominant pharmaceutical preparations.
If a new patient wants to smoke or use THC-rich marijuana, it is recommended to start with inhalation and wait 15 minutes before inhaling. This usually allows you to feel the effects of inhaling marijuana in a matter of minutes, thus quickly alleviating acute distress. If necessary, inhale an additional pump every 15 to 30 minutes until the desired symptom control is achieved.
As for oral administration, it should be remembered that it may take 60 to 90 minutes before the effect of a single dose is felt.
It is recommended to use a carefully titrated method to consume cannabis products rich in THC. They recommend that patients with little or no experience with cannabis should receive a dose equivalent to 1.25 to 2.5 mg two days before bedtime. If there were no adverse side effects, the bedtime of THC was increased to 2.5 mg in the next two days. Continue to increase the THC dose every other day until the desired effect is achieved.
If there are adverse side effects, reduce the dose of THC to a previously well-tolerated amount.
