What is the right dosage of CBD? How to calculate it for yourself?

[vc_row] [vc_column] [vc_column_text]

This guide, as the name suggests, is intended to help you identify the right dosage of CBD. That is to say the dosage that suits you personally and specifically. Because there is no standard dosage. No specific dosage, CBD is not a drug. It is listed as a dietary supplement free of any undesirable side effects.

The relevant dosage depends primarily on the different forms of administration. CBD oils, CBD e-liquids are the most common. But there are also CBD capsules sometimes called CBD capsules, creams for certain skin / inflammatory problems such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, etc., ointments for muscle relaxation, pure crystals of CBD for boost products in CBD or to make homemade compositions (DIY for Do It Yourself), etc.

Some will think that there is also, as for the cannabis from which it is derived, the possibility of smoking. Certainly. But that's not the way we advocate. In addition to the fact that combustion is harmful in itself, there is a loss of benefits that bring in particular the terpenes, the aromatic molecules of the plant. We recommend in this sense to make an herbal tea for example or to spray it. It is different from the vape because it requires special equipment to not burn.

Also, we will try in this guide to bring to your attention elements concerning CBD oils, CBD capsules and CBD e-liquids. But in reality, it will be up to you to set the starting dosage and adjust for ultimately, find the one that is suitable for you.

CBD as a raw material

Whatever the CBD products, they are derived from CBD from roughly 3 forms:

  • The original form: That is, the dried plant. It is actually "full spectrum" nevertheless respecting the rate of THC allowed in the plant. THC with psychotropic properties being excluded or present in its only form of traces. The full spectrum means that the CBD is "surrounded" by the other components of the plant. Including secondary cannabinoids and terpenes, aromatic molecules of the plant. All these components that have interesting properties individually form when they are in contact what is called the "surround effect" that is to say an interactive collective reaction that increases the properties of the components more importantly than if they acted alone.
  • The broadspectrum: This is a composition of which THC has been totally totally excluded THC. It gives CBD oil, CBD e-liquids or other CBD products what is called a broad spectrum. The surrounding effect is present without the THC.
  • The isolate: The products are made from pure crystals of CBD. That is to say, devoid of all the other components of the plant.

A tailor-made dosage

There is no dosage for CBD. Because each individual is a specific case. So, is it a question of answering this preliminary question: what are or what are the reasons that lead you to the CBD?

Maybe a hormonal change? A heartache, a big stress on the nervous system, a strong emotion that you can not channel, a nicotine withdrawal because you stopped smoking, a persistent anxiety that comes from who knows where , a sleep that is no longer so restorative, a need for rest that has been relegated too long as secondary, muscular tension, etc. The fields in which the CBD comes in support are numerous.

The right dosage of CBD is the one that corresponds to the person's best, his situation, his build, his state of mind, his physical condition, his inheritance, his own endocannabinoid system. And then the CBD, it would be rather in the day that you would need it? Or rather, in the evening? Both ? And which form of absorption would be best for you? CBD oil for sublingual administration? Capsules by ingestion? E-liquids for vaping?

For the determination of CBD, basic postulates:

1 - There is no dosage per se. No uniformity in individuals regarding the amount of CBD needed to respond to symptoms. Some people get the results expected as early as 1 milligram of CBD a day. While others will need up to 100 milligrams a day.

2 - It's about testing your sensitivity. Start with a small amount / day to find the reaction point and make adjustments as you go.

3- Perseverance is required. If some people are satisfied by getting results fast enough, others may be frustrated and give up the process of finding the right CBD dosage, convinced that the CBD does not work for them. The search for the point of sensitivity therefore requires a little patience.

4 - A low regular dosage of CBD, even in small amounts and not causing a noticeable reaction, acts on the immune system. CBD particularly activating endocannabinoid system receptors called CB2, predominate in immune tissues.

How to calculate the dosage of CBD in CBD oil?

The concentration of CBD oil: It can vary significantly from one bottle to another. It is measured in milligrams (mg) of CBD per milliliter (ml). In general, a CBD oil containing less than 15 mg / ml is considered to be a low concentration. Between 15 and 49 mg / ml, a medium concentration. Beyond 50 mg / ml, a high concentration.

To obtain the same amount of CBD with different CBD concentrations, it is a matter of calculating. You will need to take obviously more drops of low concentration CBD oil than high concentration. Simply divide the total number of milligrams of CBD in the bottle by the total amount of liquid in milliliters. This information is usually found on the CBD oil label.

The dosage for CBD oil

Two different methods are used by savvy consumers. They should not be considered as medical advice.

Start with a microdosing

This is the most widespread and economical method. It requires time, attention and patience. It is not suitable for everyone.

Start by taking a single drop of your CBD oil. If you do not feel any effect after 45 minutes, take a drop and repeat this process until you notice a difference.

Your CBD dosage will correspond to the total number of drops you have taken during this test phase. You can then adopt the amount of CBD absorbed for a single shot. This will be the reference dose. And make the other adjustments. How to define the day's catch time (s) that correspond to why you are using CBD. Frequency, etc.

It should be noted that if you use a low concentration product, it may take a long time to find your optimal CBD dosage. You can speed up this process by taking several drops at a time rather than just one, or by choosing a more concentrated product. This is the second method.

Start with an average dose

This method is preferred by those who have less patience. Because it is a question of defining a dose according to average recommendations from experiences shared by users for a given reason (anxiety, sleep, inflammation, etc.). Then slowly increase if necessary all 3-4 days until the desired effect is obtained. This will be your reference CBD dose.

To do this, start with the half the dosage of CBD recommended in the table, below, depending on your weight and the intensity of the problem that led you to take CBD. Obviously, if you have the symptoms, you should talk to your doctor.

How to measure your drops of CBD oil?

The dosage per milliliter is more accurate than the counting per drop. Because drops of CBD oil can have concentrations ranging from 2 to 5 milligrams of CBD per drop. Also, these discrepancies can mislead those who need to know the exact amount of CBD absorbed. But the majority of consumers go to the ladle, if we can say that.

20 drops of CBD oil equivalent to about 1 milliliter for a standard dropper. But watch out for some droppers that have different flow rates. In some cases the number of milliliters per drop may vary from single to double. Often it is indicated on the label but if it is not the case, take your patience and measure the number of drops by yourself. Or contact the manufacturer for information.

How many capsules or capsules of CBD to take?

The capsules are made from CBD oil. The bioavailability of capsules is much lower than that of vape or sublingual drops. Bioavailability is the amount of a product actually available to the body once absorbed. It depends on the absorption mode. The capsules are ingested and go through the digestive system. There is a loss due to their metabolism by the liver. Nevertheless, this mode of absorption is not uninteresting. Because the diffusion is slower and longer.

With the capsules however, you know exactly how many milligrams you take, because it will be indicated on the box. The average dosage usually adopted is between 10 and 25 milligrams of CBD per capsule.

Start with no more than one capsule. It will take between 30 minutes to more than one hour for the CBD to act once passed through the digestive system. The effect is delayed and to adjust it will wait at least 2 hours before a new take.

How much CBD in e-liquids in CBD?

Usual recommendations: Finding the right dosage with vape or vaping is more difficult than oils taken sublingually. With CBD oils, you can therefore calculate the number of drops needed to reach the desired dosage. But vaping is very different since you have to fill the tank of your electronic cigarette with an e-liquid. And vapote. How many CBDs at each aspiration? Hard to say.

Also for the vape of e-liquids in the CBD, it is generally recommended to take one or two aspirations then to wait a few minutes. If you do not feel any relief from your stress or feel any relaxation, then you can take one or two more additional aspirations and repeat the process until you get the desired effect.

Does weight matter when it comes to CBD dosing?

Some observations speak of 2,5 milligrams of CBD by weight of 5 kilos. A person weighing about 68 pounds would take 37,5 milligrams of CBD per day. But it's far from a rule. Because the weight remains only one factor among others. And not the most important.

Because other factors are considered as priorities. For what symptoms? What intensity? What is the functioning of your body and especially your endocannabinoid system? Which absorption mode is best for you? How often do you want to take your CBD? At what time of the day ? Do you plan to take a CBD product, oil or e-liquid instead, from an extract of the plant that will allow you to have a broader plant spectrum or isolate?

What about aromas in e-liquids at CBD?

You will find in the different ranges, all types of e-liquids. Concerning aromas, there are synthetic ones, natural ones that do not come from the natural plant and those from the cannabis plant also called terpenes.

Synthetic flavors: Oils and capsules are generally devoid of artificial flavor. It will therefore be found mainly in e-liquids. The variety does not fail. Pastèque, strawberry, hazelnut, cookie, tangy, citrus, original compositions type cocktail, salted butter, caramel, candy, ripe, red fruits, etc. These CBD e-liquids with artificial flavors often have the sole purpose of relaxing and soothing anxiety. Hence the playfulness. Or allow smokers to substitute their conventional cigarette for an electronic e-cigarette whose clearomiser is filled with propylene glycol (or a vegetable base) and CBD with the aroma of blond tobacco for example. This may allow for easier transition and nicotine withdrawal more calmed. CBD is a powerful relaxant.

Natural flavors not of phytocannabinoid origin: The natural aroma not derived from the cannabis plant is a plant terpene. It is derived from a terpene present in cannabis, or from another plant or fruit. These natural terpenes, whatever they are, have their own properties and can nevertheless in certain cases participate in an entourage effect. Would it be a minimum. Examples: Apha-pinene, known especially for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is found in the cannabis plant but also in rosemary, eucalyptus, sage. Or in the turpentine essence.

Phytocannabinoid terpenes: We find a good hundred. The best known are myrcene, alpha-pinene, beta-caryophyllene, limonene, etc. These terpenes not only have their own properties. But can also, in the context of an e-liquid based on CBD natural extract with its other components, participate in an efficient entourage effect. Myrcene, for example, has a woody, vegetal scent with a dominant aroma of mango. It would be an analgesic, have antioxidant effects, relax muscle mass and help sleep.
