Our CBD Dosage Calculator
We developed a CBD Dosage Estimation Calculator that helps users determine their own therapeutic amount of CBD to take for their ailment. Our estimations are based on data derived from studies, forums, blogs, our hosted survey. We extrapolate our estimations using our found dosage data per ailment and charted to the average body weight. This allows our users to input their own weight, ailment, and severity which serves to customize their estimate.
Dosage Based on Weight
There’s are two schools of thought in regards to CBD Calculation. One considers weight irrelevant being that the cannabinoid receptors pertain only to our brain. The other school of thought consider the weight relevant. From our research, we have found a pattern in weight to dosage size. In the study of obesity and pharmocokinetics (which involves body weight to medicinal absorption) considers the following factors affected by weight are as follows:
Finding the Right CBD Dosage
The traditional method of finding the right dosage is to start off with a low amount. For instance, typically users start off with 3-5mg dosages on the first day. If the user experiences no change, they might increase to 10mg, and continue increasing it bit by bit until they find it effective and consistent in providing relief.
Alternatively our CBD Dosage Calculator offers Dosage Estimation based on crowd sourced and privately researched data which may help our users to achieve their goals much faster.
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. We have taken this into account during the construct of our CBD Dosage Calculator. Our calculator allows our users to select an ailment and the associated severity where applicable.
Using our CBD Dosage Calculator
The CBD Dosage Calculator is an estimation tool that takes into account user specific factors to assist users to find a baseline from which you can raise or lower you CBD dosage as necessary. Upon filling out the form on our form, Our tool can then generates three steps of extrapolated dosages. Step one will suggest an introductory dosage, meanwhile the other two suggest higher doses. Our users choose to stop at either step one, two, or three, depending on when the users achieve their desired effects. Nearly half stop at step three while the other half stop during the first two steps as they have found their optimum dosage.
Methods of CBD Consumption
Available in several forms, including pills, gummies, tinctures, balms, and vaping devices, CBD is fast becoming more prevalent 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.
- 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”.
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.
We suggest the use of a tincture to allow adequate and consistent absorption throughout the day. Using a tincture will also allow the user to properly quantify a consistent dose with every use.
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.
