CBD has been in vogue for some years now. And it keeps waxing stronger, leading to the proliferation of brands in the market. Of course, with proliferation usually comes adulteration as some people might succumb to the urge to exploit the market negatively. There have been cases of CBD products containing less CBD, or even no CBD, contrary to what is written on the label. There are thousand and one available brands and knowing the best brand to go for is a difficult task. Hence, before you get yourself preoccupied with the right dose, you must identify the best brands or products. Doing this is definitely the first step in the right direction. Until you get this sorted, you are not fit to think about the right dosage for you.
Right Dose for You?
Sincerely, this is, to some extent, a difficult question to answer as there is no direct answer to it. There is also no authoritative dosage guidelines. Although most CBD products have a clear and informative direction of usage on the label, this is only a suggestion as CBD is not a medicine that goes with precise dosage. Individual differences account for the right dosage of CBD. What works for Mr. A may not work for Mr. B, which is normal because we all have different body biochemistry accounting for the different workings of our body systems.
The duration of usage is also important to determine the correct quantity for you. A regular user will most definitely require more quantity than an amateur user because the former has a higher tolerance threshold than the latter.
Besides all the above considerations, the key is to start on a lower strength and increase as you progress with CBD. After about a week or more of consistent ingestion/application, you will be able to gauge the exact effect of this substance on your body. You are not supposed to adjust doses spontaneously. Allow ample time between each dose increase to enable you to evaluate how your body responds to the product. Thus, you can adjust the amount you use accordingly based on your tolerance of the compound. In most cases, experts advise that you start with a low dose of between 5 to 20 mg per day. In the UK the legal dose of CBD should not exceed 70mg/day.
In determining the appropriate CBD for yourself, the guide is, start slowly, go slowly but keep moving. And this might take some time to really figure out; hence patience is vital at this stage.
The form of CBD you consume, like edibles, oils and tinctures, gummies, capsules, and balms, is also important in determining the actual amount. This is because the rate of absorption of different forms varies, and so should the dose. For instance, spray or oil is absorbed faster than capsules and therefore registers effect faster.
CBD is generally safe, including in high doses, so there is not much to fear when using it, but this does not endorse abuse. Therefore, feel free to try it until you discover the best dose for yourself.
