As you continue your trip in understanding the wonders of CBD, questions will surely arise and searching through the world wide web might be the answer. Although various information is available, there are too many variations of just one question. One is to know the right dosage for you.
It is important to consider that different brands have unique views on how much CBD is needed. However, each person is unique and what works for the other may not work for you. First, understand the nature of CBD, analyze, monitor, and create the desirable dosage just for you.
Dosage for Tinctures
These tinctures are commonly known as CBD oil. It is one of the most popular products of CBD and the easiest way to get your daily intake. Tinctures also have the most convenient and effective consumption methods by placing it under the tongue or sublingually.
Once the solution drops under the tongue, it immediately gets absorbed through the blood vessels. Of course, there is some measure to take to reach the maximum effect of the tinctures. Make sure to hold the solution under the tongue for about 20-30 seconds before swallowing the remaining oil.
Merging CBD with oil requires a carrier called the MCT or medium chain triglycerides or medium chain fatty acids. Carrier oils are derived from coconut or palm oil and infused together to help CBD absorb quickly by the body.
The desired amount of CBD for tinctures can vary depending on the milligram(mg) strength of the product. Other factors are also the severity of the symptoms or illness, budget and personal body variables like metabolism, weight, age, and many more. Generally, companies produce tinctures use the following strength of the product:
- 500 mg CBD Tincture
- 600 mg CBD Tincture
- 800 mg CBD Tincture
- 1000 mg CBD Tincture
- 1200 mg CBD Tincture
- 1500 mg CBD Tincture
- 1800 mg CBD Tincture
- 2000 mg or more CBD Tincture
Similar to other medications, medical professionals are the only one who can give a prescribed dosage. However, CBD does not follow strict guidelines and each brand manufacturer has their own unique style. Nonetheless, all of the products start from administering low dosage and slowly increase it while carefully monitoring the effects of CBD in a person’s body. By monitoring each dosage is taken and the effects are shown, it can help understand and determine the desired dosage.
What is the first dosage?
The first way to know the ideal initial dosage is to estimate it based on body weight. The method is to take 1-6 mg of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight based on how much of the symptoms progress in your body.
Dosage for Gummies
Gummies are always loved both by adults and children and it is a popular way to take CBD daily. Compared to a medicine-looking tincture bottle, gummies taste better and pleasing to people’s eyes. Calculating the dosage for CBD gummies is easier too. Most common strengths of CBD gummies are 300 mg and 600 mg gummies.
For beginners, the gummies bottle can be very confusing. Each gummy has a fixed amount of CBD that a 300 mg bottle means you’re taking 30 (10 mg) gummies. It is essential that you check how much CBD is in each gummy to determine how much you eat.
Just like tinctures, start from the lowest dosage and slowly change it by monitoring the intake. It’s advisable to start with one 10 mg CBD gummy twice a day and record the effects. After that, you can increase the number of gummies taker per day or purchase a stronger strength.
