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!

CBD from Industrial hemp has a great reputation for its safety and efficacy and for good reason! It is well-received by most humans and animals with its non-addictive and non-intoxicating balancing effects. Because of this, it’s important to know when and why hemp CBD may not behave well with others. Others in this instance, meaning medications and/or herbs. Caution is often taken when mixing CBD with blood-thinning or cholesterol-lowering prescriptions because of CYP450 as it plays a role in deciding which meds and what dose will be effective for a patient. Let’s discuss what it is, what it means for CBD users and how we can advance the safe and practical use of Hemp CBD oil by knowing more about it.

What if CBD isn't working for me? Troubleshooting Guide!!

by Stephanie Burner January 10, 2019

Honestly, the idea of CBD not working for someone is hard for me to hear. I want people to be well and it seems unfair! Though not often, it does come up and we are paving the road to greater understanding when we share our genuine experiences. It is always a good idea to be honest about how something is or isn’t working in your body! It’s easy to become very frustrated when you try CBD every which way and feel nothing. Or you find relief and then the body stops responding the same way it did months ago, at the same dose. Because we are all unique biologically and because things can change at a moment’s notice on a cellular level, this is normal and to be expected so don’t give up on yourself or your Endocannabinoid System. Below, I offer some suggestions for those who have experienced a lackluster effect from CBD.
