What is my CBD dosage?
(1)The European CBD market is expected to grow 400% by 2023. (1)3 out of 4 consumers report that CBD use has positively impacted their lives while 65% of current CBD users are likely to buy CBD again in the next 6 months. So, whether it is a new or tried product use to you, you will join many people looking to find the best dosage to suit their needs.
When considering buying a CBD product you should consider the number of cannabinoids (CBD) that are included within that product. 5% 500mg CBD will have less CBD within the product that a product that states 20% 2000mg CBD within the product. The reason why this is important is the cost- the more the amount of CBD the more that product will cost but most importantly what dosage you require for your needs.
The chart below taken from our Goodbody Botanicals range gives an indication on high and low dosage.
Different for different people
For every person, the amount of CBD needed to get the best boost to this well-being will differ. Some people need more to get that boost and others will need less. This is because the CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, a series of nerve receptors within your body. The phenomenon of cannabis having such profound effects on the body is all to do with this system, a remarkable natural coincidence where plant particles have just the right configuration to change the way we feel.
So with all of this in mind, how much CBD should you take? Well, the answer is that experimenting is up to you. But to start with, we suggest considering our standard CBD 2.5% drops and taking one two drops at a time. If it is not giving a noticeable effect after the first few tries, you can increase in small increments, say take 3 or 4 drops. If it’s not working after a while it’s not a cause for alarm, it’s not unheard of for this to happen – try changing the time of day or the way you’re taking it, or taking it after a meal – and results may change.
CBD fortunately doesn’t cause overdose, allergic reactions or other hospitalisation problems, so you can keep upping the amount until you find what works for you. Some people have reported the usefulness of the supplement at as low as a few drops daily, which just shows how much it can vary. However if you think you want to try a higher dosage, our drops also go up in strength – we have 5% and 10% strength versions of our original CBD drops as well as a whole host of other ways to use CBD on our website. The UK Food Standards Agency, (FSA) guidelines recommend not to exceed 70mg in a given day.
There really is no concrete guide on getting CBD cannabis liquid to work best for you, because there is also no concrete guide on the human body. We are all unique when it comes down to our physical and nervous properties, so using CBD must be a personalised process for everyone. Try it yourself and see if you can find that sweet spot.
Mixing CBD with meals
One of the most reliable, easy and fun ways of getting your daily serving of CBD is mixing it into your food. For example, our customers have mixed our CBD oil 5% 500mg in their morning coffee.
CBD binds well with fats so anything that already has oils or fats already in it are perfect options. This could be the mayonnaise in your sandwiches or the dressing on your salad. Ideal, when you are looking at a light lunch option.
Traditional ways of taking CBD
As we have said the most traditional way of taking CBD oil daily is a few drops from a tincture of oil. There are the capsules that some people find potentially less messy which can sometimes be the case with the oil if it is knocked over while open.
The balm can be applied externally to the parts of the body you feel require CBD oil 250mg the most. This provides much more of a targeted method of using the supplement that everyone is talking about.
As you can see, there are many options we offer, hopefully this will go some way to making CBD easily accessible for everyone to allow you to find the best dosage to suit your needs.
