Factors that may influence your CBD dose.
We have established that everyone Is different. There are many factors which may influence your correct CBD dose, including;
• The concentration of CBD oil you are taking
• Your weight, age and general health
• Your tolerance to CBD
• Your reason for taking CBD.
Not only are we all made differently, we each have our own unique history with the use of substances, medications, supplements, and other things we put in our body. Because of this, we all have different body chemistry, and this will affect how our body reacts to CBD.
First gauge how your body responds to CBD.
When beginning CBD, it’s best to start with the lowest possible dose to gauge how your body responds to CBD cigarettes. Everyone reacts differently to various supplements and CBD is no exception. Take one drop of CBD oil and listen to your body. Do you feel drowsy? Do you feel energized? Are you experiencing any symptoms that are not usual for you?
Once you have assessed how you personally react to CBD you can begin to find your optimal dose. There are a couple of common methods, which we will now discuss.
Estimate your CBD dose based on body weight.
One commonly used method of CBD dosing is to calculate CBD dose in accordance with body weight. As with many other substances and supplements, individuals with more body mass may require to take more CBD to experience the benefits. A CBD dose of between 1mg-5mg (milligram) per 4.5kg body weight is often used to determine the right CBD dosage. Your reason for taking CBD may also be an influencing factor, as well as your age and tolerance to CBD – so dosing using your body weight alone may not be an effective method for everyone. Experiment to see what works for you.
The “Low and slow” method of introducing CBD.
Another common method of dosing CBD is the “low and slow” approach. With this method you start with a low CBD dose and slowly increase your intake each week, until you reach the desired effect.
A good starting point is: 2-4mg of CBD, 3 times a day, for the first week. This is likely to equate to 1-2 drops (or sprays) of CBD oil, but this will depend on the strength of the oil you are taking.
Spread the drops throughout the day. For example, take one in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in the evening. Maintain this dose for a week.
The next step is to gauge how your body reacted to that amount of CBD, then increase gradually each week, while continuing to monitor your body’s reactions till you find the perfect dosage that works for your situation.
You will know when you have reached your optimal dose, because a further increase in CBD does not bring with it addition benefits. Please do not exceed the recommended 200mg daily CBD supplement limit.
The “low and slow” approach may not be suitable for all health situations. There may be some circumstances where higher doses of CBD are beneficial from the outset. If you have any queries please consult your doctor.
