CBD has been shown to provide wonderful therapeutic benefits for so many people. The tricky part can be figuring out the dose that is ideal for you. Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to the question, “how much CBD should I take?” However, we can provide you with some great tips including conservative starting doses and how to increase your dose if necessary.
Why do we suggest that you start with a low dose and slowly increase when you begin your journey with CBD? There are two simple reasons. Reason one, everyone’s body is unique, and responses will vary as a result. Reason two, it is more cost effective to you as a consumer if you don’t take more than what your body needs. Start low; a generic conservative starting dose is around 10mg. If your initial dose does not work for you, you don’t need to worry! This is a commonplace outcome of a beginning dose, especially when following conservative dosing strategies. Go slow; allow enough time for the CBD to do the job it’s intended to do. Patience is key here! We suggest taking that starting dose consistently for about 10 days. Keep going; if you are not feeling the desired result then it’s time to increase your dose. We suggest at least five days between each dose increase. The most common mistake that people make with CBD is not taking the dose that’s right for them and it’s an easy one to make!
Start low, go slow, but KEEP GOING.
We won’t dive too deeply into this right now, but it is important to understand that different products have varying levels of efficacy. Oftentimes, people find they need higher doses of Pure CBD than they would a Full Spectrum Hemp Oil. This is due to the CBD working alone in the Pure CBD and the CBD working together with an array of additional cannabinoids, terpenes, and phytonutrients in the Full Spectrum Hemp Oil. In addition, there are different methods of consumption that can also affect how much you may need to take. While tinctures are the most common method of consumption there are also capsules, vapes, and topicals to name a few. Oh dear, how complicated is this? Don’t worry, it’s really rather simple and we can help guide you and answer any questions that you may have along the way.
Help you, help yourself! Take charge of your health and track your progress. Journaling is an extremely effective aid when trying to figure out your dose. Keep track of each day during this process. Document the dose, the time taken, how you felt before and after, and keep it up with each dose increase. No one knows your body as well as you do. Document your journey and let us know how it goes!
