Let’s Determine The Right CBD Dosage For Your Optimum Results
You may have figured out by now that determining how much CBD you should take is quite different than what you are used to. While determining your ideal dosage, it will require some experimentation, so you will eventually find the right dose of CBD to suit your needs.
How Much CBD Should I Take?
The answer to this important question is both simple and complex. The correct amount of CBD for you depends on your needs, the type of products you take, and the way your body responds to CBD.
Not Everyone Is The Same So Their Body Reacts Different to CBD
Hemp-derived CBD is not a medication. It mimics the messengers and influences the receptors of your endocannabinoid system. When your body needs more messengers than it produces, CBD helps keep the vital regulatory system functioning at optimal levels. Since everyone’s body chemistry is different, a CBD dosage that is correct for one person could be more or less than you need for maximum benefits.
How Do I Determine The Right CBD Dose?
You will not be able to calculate your ideal CBD dosage by following a recommendation in a chart. The right dose for you is an amount only you can determine. The following suggestions could help you figure things out:
- Start with Small Doses
When you first start taking hemp CBD, start with a small amount. While we don’t make dosing suggestions, 20-60 mg per day is commonly recommended. A small amount can be anywhere from 10-30 mg. Please be patience as it can take several hours, several days, or several weeks before you notice significant benefits. Everyone is different.
- Keep Track of How CBD Affects You
Many people find it helpful to track how CBD affects their symptoms. Consider keeping daily notes or even use a checklist. If you notice a decrease in pain or an increase in sleepiness, write it down. Experiment with increasing or decreasing the amount based on how you are feeling.
- Don’t Be Afraid to Increase Your CBD Dose
While its commonly recommended new users start with a low dose, you do not need to be afraid to increase the amount of CBD you take if your current dosage is not providing the affects you are looking for. You can increase the amount of CBD you take with your next dose or after a few days, the choice is yours. Taking an increased dosage of CBD is not harmful.
- Test Small Increases
The point of starting low and increasing slowly is to help you determine your ideal dosage. If you increase the amount you take quickly, you may end up taking more CBD than you need. Taking more product than necessary will not provide any additional benefits. Increase in small increments and track your progress.
M CBD’s Products are Third-Party Tested for the Highest Quality
When you place your trust in M CBD, you never have to worry about the quality of the products you select. All M CBD, products are third party-tested to be sure they are as potent as we claim.
CBD Dosage by Product Type
There are several factors to consider when deciding how much CBD oil to take. The amount of CBD you take per dose is measured in milligrams (mg). The more concentrated the tincture, the less product you will need per dose.
Dosages Based On A 30ml Bottle With A 1 ml Dropper
CBD tinctures are available in a variety of concentrations. The amount of Cannabidiol (CBD) in M CBD products is clearly stated on the label of each bottle and the dropper serving size is 1 ml. Don’t worry, it’s simple to determine how much CBD you should take once you understand it.
As an example, let’s say you want to start with a 33.34mg dosage of CBD. Each full dropper holds a milliliter (ml). By dividing the total milligrams of CBD by the number of milliliters contained in the bottle, you will know how many milligrams (mg) of CBD each dropper contains. You can break that number down further by estimating 20 drops per ml.
4 Best CBD Dosages:
- 250 mg bottle = 30 mL or 30-1 ml servings that equal 8.33mg CBD each
- 500 mg bottle = 30 mL or 30-1 ml serving that equal 16.67mg CBD each
- 1000 mg bottle = 30 mL or 30-1 ml serving that equal 33.34mg CBD each
- 1500 mg bottle = 30 mL or 30-1 ml serving that equal 50mg CBD each
For example; if your target dosage is 33.34 mg, you would take 1 dropper of a 1000 mg tincture or 2 droppers of a 500 mg tincture or 4 droppers of a 250mg tincture for the same results. Choosing the dosage is simple nor that you understand it. M CBD will not be wasted while you are working on determining the correct dose for you. Consider it the dosage discovery time, with results likely to be just around the corner. Please be patient.
CBD Softgel Dosage
CBD capsules are ideal for those who want a simple and accurate dosing. Each M CBD softgel contains a specified amount of CBD with no measuring required. If your goal is 25 mg per day, you could take your CBD in the morning and forget about it. The effects can last up to eight hours. You could always take a second capsule if you determine that consistent CBD levels are best for your needs.
CBD Gummy Dosage
A single gummy commonly contains 10 mg of CBD. If your targeted dosage is 30 mg, you chew 3 gummies for the day, it’s that easy. When selecting gummies, it’s important take only infused gummies like Gimmi Gummi and not sprayed candy gummies. There are many inferior gummies which have little or no results.
CBD Tincture Dosage
Those new to hemp-derived CBD commonly start with CBD oil tinctures. With tincture, it’s easy to adjust the amount of CBD you take until you find your ideal dosage. CBD tinctures are quite versatile. You can simply drop tincture under your tongue, let it absorb and swallow the remainder or add it to your foods or beverages. For the best results, hold under your tongue for 60 seconds before swallowing.
What Are The Variables That May Affect Your CBD Experience?
It is easy to find many reports and user testimonials claiming significant benefits from using CBD products, and you will also find comments from people who were not so impressed.
When you begin anything new, it’s important to have realistic expectations. You cannot gauge your own experience by the comments of others; you know you the best, so listen to yourself. There are many factors that can influence your CBD experience, including the following:
- The Quality of Your CBD Oil
There are many misleading products on the market. Some vendors sell “hemp oil” supplements made with hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil does not contain CBD. Hemp seed oil is ineffective and a waste of money. You must see Cannabidiol percentages on the product label. If the amount of CBD in your product is not clearly stated in milligrams (mg), there is not likely enough CBD in the product to be of any significance.
- The CBD Concentration
If you are using a CBD tincture with a low concentration of CBD, you will need to be sure to use enough of the product to achieve your desired dose. Let’s be clear, an overpriced 15 ml tincture that contains 25 mg of CBD means that is the amount of CBD in the entire bottle, not per dose. This is insignificant amount of CBD and a waste of your time and money.
- Your Percentage of Body Fat
While there are no studies of fat cell absorption rates, we know that cannabinoids are drawn to fat. A high percentage of body fat can keep the CBD in your product from absorbing into your bloodstream. If 30 percent of the CBD you take is absorbed by fat cells, that leaves only 70 percent of the CBD you take circulating in your body.
- Your Genetics
CBD may target key endocannabinoid and non-endocannabinoid receptors throughout your body to potentially initiate a response. Research suggests that nearly 20 percent of the population has a genetic mutation that increases the levels of endocannabinoids produced in their bodies. Those affected are less likely to notice significant effects from CBD.
Understand The Severity Of Your Symptoms
Your experience with CBD could be affected by the severity of the symptoms you are hoping to address. The dosing and amount of time needed to achieve full potential could be vary between people.
Product Type Can Influence Your Experience
Unlike medical cannabis, hemp-derived CBD is non-intoxicating. Because of the way CBD is absorbed in your body, the type of product you select can have a significant impact on your CBD experience.
The effects of softgels and tinctures can commonly be felt within an hour or so and can last up to eight hours. Since vape products bypass digestive processes, the potential effects could be felt within minutes but are of a shorter duration. It may take some experimentation to find the best dosage, product, or combination of CBD products to suit your needs.
To determine your ideal dosage, start with a few milligrams of a CBD tincture, a single softgel, or a few puffs of a vape pen and see how you feel. If you don’t notice the particular benefits you were seeking, you can increase the dosage a little at a time.
