About CBD Use and Dosing

Dosing with CBD

Available in several forms, including pills, gummies, tinctures, balms, and vaping devices, CBD is fast becoming popular thanks to its many potential health benefits. If you want to experience the therapeutic advantages of CBD, how do you take it and how much of it should you take?

Here, we’re going to look at the various forms of CBD, their pros and cons, as well as finding the correct dosage for you, whether you want to help alleviate pain, manage anxiety, or use it for other reasons entirely.

What is CBD?

CBD is an extract that comes from cannabis or hemp. Unlike THC, it in no way gets the user high, and the FDA has recently approved CBD-drugs used to treat seizure disorders. However, while there are no known health risks associated with CBD, not all of the benefits have been proven. The majority of users agree that it helps alleviate their symptoms, but many are still waiting for it to be tested more thoroughly. If you plan on using CBD, first check to ensure that it’s legal in your state.

How to use CBD

Here are some of the different methods of using CBD, as well as some pros and cons you might want to consider

  •         Vape pens: While these are the fastest form of delivering CBD into the bloodstream and are easy to use, it is also very difficult to control your dosage, given how easy it is to continuously use vape pens.
  •         Tincture: This can come in drop or spray form which is delivered directly into the mouth. This is the second quickest working form, the most widely advocated, and the easiest to control the dose of. However, not all bottles display the per dose amount, so choose carefully.
  •         Topicals: These are balms or body rubs, which are considered the safest and most cautious way to use CBD. However, a lot of it is needed to provide an effective dose, which can make it very expensive to use.
  •         Edibles: From foodstuffs like gummies and muffins to pills, finding CBD-enhanced foods or pills is relatively easy, and it’s certainly the tastiest way to ingest it. However, it also takes much longer to absorb since it has to go through your digestive system before it ends up in the bloodstream.

One form may be more effective for you than others, so the fact that you might not find edibles or topicals effective does not mean that CBD doesn’t necessarily work for you. If you want to control your dosage levels, however, tinctures are the most recommended form.

To use tinctures, deliver the per dosage amount (often one spray or a couple drops, depending on the mechanism) directly into the mouth and hold it under your tongue for thirty seconds before swallowing.

Finding the right dosage for CBD oil

CBD works in tandem with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which changes from person to person. As a result, finding the right dosage can be tricky. Here, we’re going to look at a few methods to help you find the right dosage:

  •         The traditional method of finding the right dosage, slow as it may be, is to start off with a low amount. For instance, you may want to start with 3-5mg dosages on the first day. If you experience no changes, then you might increase to 10mg, and continue increasing it bit by bit until you find it effective and consistent in providing relief.
  •         Consider trying different methods of using CBD if one method simply isn’t working. For instance, if a CBD vape isn’t working, try an edible or a balm instead. There are multiple delivery systems, some of them providing an immediate effect for some, while others may be more of a “slow burn”.
  •         Take into account the condition or symptoms you’re trying to treat. From chronic pain to glaucoma to epilepsy to sleep disorders, there are plenty of different conditions that might require different dosage levels. If your symptoms cause severe pain, seizures, or other extreme symptoms, higher dosages may be required.

Using our CBD dosage calculator

To help you find a baseline from which you can raise or lower you CBD dosage as necessary, the CBD dosage calculator is a tool that takes into account your specific needs. Simply input your bodyweight, the purpose of use and, if you’re using it on a human, what animal you are hoping to treat with it. The tool can then suggest three dosages, three steps that can help you increase the use over time if it does not provide effective relief immediately.
