Where to begin with dosing when starting CBD is one of the questions everyone wonders when they decide to try CBD. It can be difficult to find a straight answer online in regards to CBD and “proper” dosing for each individual.
One thing to remember is; CBD is not completely bioavailable and has different bioavailability depending on the form. So what does that mean? For example, starting with CBD as a tincture, if you begin with taking 5 drops of a tincture, some of the tincture may be used in your body while some of it may not. The remaining that isn’t used by your body can be saved and stored for later use.
CBD bioavailability can range and react differently depending on the person, product and form. Inhaling CBD provides the maximum amount of bioavailability, it fast tracks the CBD through your lungs and into your body. However, the effects also don’t remain active as long as an under the tongue oil. Salves and creams topically transport CBD into targeted areas via your skin instead of being evenly dispersed through your whole body.
Interesting, So What Is A Good Dosage of CBD To Start With?
When it comes to taking CBD orally from a tincture, typically a good starting dosage is 5mg to 10mg. If you are using CBD for its topical benefits, you can start with a nice thick coat of cream, massage it into the trouble area, then let it dry. The length of effectiveness vary by person, the area of the body and how much you managed to massage in. If you feel that it is not enough, you can use more, applying it the same way.
There are other forms of CBD, take capsules for example. CBD capsules can be a great option for individuals constantly on the go or have a hard time ingesting oils orally. When using CBD capsules, it is important to remember that it will take just a bit longer for the CBD to get fully into your body and begin giving you desired effects. CBD capsules are simply made of liquid CBD oil and a natural dissolving outer shell.
Here are some common CBD products people start with:
Can I Overdose on CBD? How Much is Too Much?
The answer to that is pretty simple; No. There has not been a single recorded case of a CBD induced overdose or death. Many trials have been conducted on this, including ones that gave subjects over 900 mgs of CBD oil at once. Not a single test subject died, showed signs of an overdose or even became ill.
Can Too Much CBD Make You High or Give You A Buzz?
Similar to the answer of overdosing, it is the same; No. Removing the feeling of being high or buzzed while retaining the beneficial properties of the hemp plant is the biggest reason people use CBD oil. Unlike its well-known cousin, marijuana, CBD does not contain THC (The psychogenic agent in cannabis that gets its users high).
