Despite the amazing effects of CBD becoming more known it is normal to be confused about the dosage that will work best for you specifically. Here at CBD Oil Direct we want to make it as easy as possible to dose your CBD intake.
Although CBD has been proven to be a natural way to help aid many illnesses it is always wise to consult your doctor and ask for his or her input on what is best for your treatment. It is also to be considered that this is not strict medical advice. Although it has been proven through extensive testing that CBD does help there is little training for medical professionals in regard to CBD or information on Health Canada websites. However, CBD has been seen greatly impacting thousands of lives and also is practically impossible for overdose on. Just to be safe though please refer to our dosing chart and if ever in need of assistance contact us or your nearest medical professional.
CBD delivery methods:
There are a number of ways to introduce CBD into your body
- Smoking via blunt or joint
- Through a bong
- Consumption through edibles, or capsules
- Sublingual through oils/ tinctures
- Topically through creams and balms
The most common and most effective way would be sublingual through a CBD oil. This is done by placing the dropper underneath your tongue and held there for roughly thirty to sixty seconds. It is during this time that it is absorbed into the blood stream, and after the desired time has passed simply swallowing it. When absorbed sublingually it does not interact with the lungs or liver and therefore retains all of its potency for the strongest and more desired effect. This is the most recommended form of consumption of CBD.
Make notes on your dosage:
It is always smart to keep in mind your exact dosage whilst also reminding yourself that your dosage is bound to change. Whether your weight increases, the severity of illness increases, or your tolerance for CBD goes up. This being said it will be a lot of experimenting when figuring out what dosage works for you personally.
Things to consider when figuring out your dosage:
As mentioned above your dosage or CBD may change and is not always an exact science however there are a few things to consider when figuring out your dosage:
- How severe your illness may be
- The type of illness you are trying to treat
- Your personal weight and metabolism
- If you are an experienced CBD user and therefore have a higher tolerance
As a rule of thumb if you have lost weight whilst ingesting CBD you should cut down on your dosage and if you have gained weight you may increase your CBD dose. Regular consumption of CBD will also lead to your tolerance for the cannabinoid increasing therefore you will also want to up your dosage after some time. Therefore, as stated before it is recommended to take notes on your personal health and what doses are working for you and tweaking it until you find the perfect fit!
Our motto here at CBD Oil Direct is start low, go slow. As any medication it is recommended to start at a smaller dose and work your way up. You should stay with the same dose for at least five to seven days in order to give your body time to adjust to the CBD and from there you can increase your dosage if needed.
CBD Side effects:
There are little to no side effects of consuming CBD except like THC it can be seen to cause a slight dry mouth in comparison to the life threatening side effects of many pharmaceuticals, so when taking CBD oil we recommend staying hydrated! CBD may also make it so your liver isn’t able to fully process other drugs therefore if you are on important medication we do recommend speaking to your health care professional before ingesting CBD oil just to make sure it doesn’t inhibit the intake of other prescriptions.
Can you overdose from CBD intake?
It is impossible to over dose on CBD as CBD is not toxic or fatal. It is possible to get ill from taking an excessive amount of CBD however in recent studies on rodents and primates you can safely ingest a very high dosage of 1,500 MG of CBD daily, whereas, most of our products are 1000 MG and are taken over the course of several weeks (3-4). So overall it is a consensus that CBD oil is very safe but we advise that you become educated on the way it interacts with any other medications you may be taking.
