CBD Dosing: Experiment and Experience


by Stephanie Burner October 03, 2018

Interestingly and honestly, dosing with CBD is quite a mystery!

There’s currently no RDA for phytocannabinoids due in large part to lack of research, which results from the moratorium on cannabis research. Fear not though – the Farm Bill of 2014 lifted the ban on producing Industrial hemp for research purposes. Studies are in motion and in the future, we may be able to provide numbers for treating certain conditions. Until then, we can experiment and estimate where to commence our journey.

Depending on several factors, each of us will have a dose that is unique and may change depending on various factors: the concentration of CBD, weight of the individual, the individual’s body chemistry and finally, the severity of the condition being treated. With a little trial and error, one is sure to find their sweet spot. Starting at a low dose and titrating up is very common and effective, although some choose to take a higher dose at and flood their ECS. Both methods are considered safe, but with the latter be careful not to overdo it – you may waste your CBD! Be aware that your body’s physiology changes daily, possibly hourly, therefore optimal doses may fluctuate throughout a user’s lifetime.

Trying out several product-lines is a nice idea, especially if you have a reputable source and the budget. Comparing and contrasting can give you a greater grasp of what’s most beneficial for you and can grant you better results!

Do you know there are at least 7 ways to ingest CBD oil?! It’s true, as if CBD isn’t confusing enough as it is 😉 How one chooses to ingest CBD will not change the effect, but it will determine the intensity and speed of absorption. In addition to finding a high-quality oil, it is very wise to weigh your options and find the right fit. Don’t buy an oil if you are turned off by the flavor or texture – you don’t want it sitting in your cabinet, you want to use it! On the other hand, if you’re considering sublingual you’ll be glad to know it is a long-standing delivery method with proven effectiveness*!

What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol and is a cannabinoid found largely in hemp! A cannabinoid is a group of chemical compounds that interact with cannabinoid receptors all over the brain and body. The most well-known cannabinoid is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), but CBD has become quite popular and cannabis alone contains 113 known cannabinoids. These are phytocannabinoids, meaning they are found in plants, rather than endocannabinoids which are made in our bodies. When consumed, phytocannabinoids like CBD can have profound effects; both physical and psychological. They are mini messengers for our next subject: The Endocannabinoid System.
