Questions related to the amount of CBD to take and how much dosage is needed are most frequently asked by first-timers. Many of us reading this right now are amongst that lot. Today we will be nose diving into that. Read on.
How Much CBD Do You Actually Need?
There really is no one-size-fits-all answer. Every person needs to find the pure CBD dosage that is tailor-made for them. It is because different people have different chemical makeup which includes the body fat percentage, gender, genetics, CBD tolerance, the ailments that you are treating, and so on.
The CBD products that you are using, the potency, the manufacturer all go into deciding how the final products will actually interact with your body. It is important that you do a bit of researching so you at least know where to focus the ‘dosage viewfinder’. It is usually advised that you start off as slowly as possible. You can gradually increase the dosage if you feel that the effectiveness is low. There are some sources that suggest starting with 25 mg every 4-5weeks until you achieve relief.
What You Need To Understand About Your CBD Product
The concentration is the amount of CBD in the product or the CBD present in each serving.
- Low strength involves 1mg of CBD per 10 lbs body weight or 0.2mg/Kg
- Medium strength involves 3mg of CBD per 10 lbs body weight or 1mg/Kg
- High strength involves 6mg of CBD per 10 lbs of body weight or 1.5mg/Kg
You can use the above information as a starting point to figure out the estimated dosage that your body needs.
The Strength Of The Tincture
Check the CBD tincture labeling for two things. One is the volume of the product and two is the number of milligrams of CBD in the container.
Some products contain the CBD amount in the percentage of the total. The label that shows 4000 mg CBD strength is only high concentration if it’s a 20ml bottle. If the bottle is around 200ml then, the CBD strength is only 2% compared to 20% in the previous case.
The size of the dropper is also important. Most droppers will hold around 1ml of the liquid. Squeeze and draw in the CBD. Dispense a drop at a time, and a total of around 20 drops should yield an ml.
If at any point you start to feel CBD side effects or you feel your symptoms getting worse, then cut the CBD use and consult your doctor.
