CBD comes with numerous health benefits

Perhaps you have heard about the health benefits of CBD. But, the question is how much can you take to feel those? CBD or Cannabidiol is one of the more than 60 active compounds found in the marijuana plant. These active compounds are popular as cannabinoids which affect your body in numerous different ways.

CBD is not psychoactive. It signifies that you will not get "high" from this. In contrast, research suggests that it might assist you:
  • to reduce depression and anxiety
  • Improve sleep
  • Reduce seizures in people suffering from epilepsy
  • soothe inflammation and pain
  • Improve the health of the heart
  • Improve symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
It doesn't matter which condition you are trying to do the treatment. It is key if you serve yourself with a sufficient amount of dosage. Or it might also not work for you. It might be difficult for you to figure out how much CBD you must consume. The reason is currently the regulation of CBD is not happening by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). There are also not any officially recommended dosages.

Given below is what you require to know about figuring out how much CBD you must take.

What the research state about CBD

CBD has been the subject of research over the past few years along with being a subject of a lot of discussions.

As this 2017 review states that big research states that CBD is a relatively safe treatment. The studies the analysis of which were in the 2017 review haven’t shown that there is any kind of universal dosage of CBD which everyone should consume. In contrast, it has signified the fact that different kinds of people have given responses to different dosages of CBD. Most human studies conducted make use of dosages which are somewhere between 20 & 1,500 milligrams per day.

You must keep this thing in your mind that still there is too much about CBD about which we are not aware. Researchers are likely going to conduct more studies on marijuana as the marijuana industry grows. These studies are inclusive of hemp, marijuana, and its derivatives.

How you will figure out the correct amount for you

The amount of CBD you must take is dependent on a huge range of factors which are inclusive of:
  • your body weight
  • the condition you are treating
  • your individual body chemistry
  • the concentration of CBD in each kind of pill, capsule, drop, & / or gummy
In other words, there is a huge number of variables that you have to take into consideration when you are going to decide how much CBD you should take. You must ensure to talk to your doctor about the appropriate dosage and any potential risks before trying CBD. You must stick to the recommendation of your doctor if your doctor tells you about how much CBD you should consume. It is very crucial you are taking a prescription medication that consists of CBD. For instance, Epidlolex is a form of seizure medication.

If your doctor doesn't facilitate you with a recommendation, it will be best for you to begin with a smaller dosage. You can also gradually enhance the amount of it. It means you can start with 20 to 40 mg per day. You can enhance this amount by 5 mg after a week. You can also continue to make use of this until you feel that it is treating your symptoms effectively.

For instance, for the treatment of your severe pain, you might start off with 40 mg. When you are suffering from a lot of pain, you can take 40 mg on those days. You can enhance this amount by 45 mg after a week. And after a second week, you can enhance this amount by 50 mg. You might have a feeling at this point that your pain is bearable.

It might be wise enough for you to do tracking of how much CBD you are consuming. And you can also track whether your symptoms are going better. You can write it down on the notes app on your phone or on paper.

In short, you can start with a small dosage of CBD and you can enhance it gradually until you reach your desired effect. Your ideal dosage of CBD is dependent on a huge number of factors. For instance, body chemistry, body weight, and the condition you are treating. It is also inclusive of the concentration of CBD in that product which you are using for treating your product.

How to do the calculation of dosage

Some products tell you that how much is there in a single serving such as capsules, pills, or gummies. For instance, the packaging on a bottle of CBD capsules gives you an indication that there is 5 mg of CBD in each capsule.

The CBD oil will likely come in a dropper bottle if you are making use of it. The packaging might give you specifications on how much CBD is there in a single drop. You can figure out from there how many drops do you require to use.

It is harder to figure out sometimes that how much CBD is there in one drop. The reason is the packaging specifies the whole amount of CBD which is there in the entire bottle. But, it does not specify the amount of CBD that will be there in a single drop.

One drop contains about 0.05 milliliters. It is just a single drop, not a full drop.

It signifies that a 10 ml bottle of CBD oil contains 200 drops. And if that 10 ml bottle packaging states that the bottle of CBD comprises 1,000 mg of CBD. Each drop of this CBD oil is going to contain about 5 mg of CBD.

So, you must take about four drops of CBD oil for having 20 mg of that type of CBD oil.

Can I take too much CBD?

A 2011 review on the side effects and safety of CBD found that humans can well tolerate the continuous use of CBD. They can even tolerate it in high doses like 1,500 mg per day.

A 2017 update to this review has also given confirmation to this. However, a 2019 study was done on mice. It has raised some safety concerns about the potential of CBD for liver damage. These were along with their interactions with numerous other medications.

Currently, if you are taking medication and have a desire to try CBD, it is crucial to discuss it with your doctor. There are few popular side effects of CBD. However, these side effects are included of fatigue, appetite changes, and diarrhea.

If you have the desire for a quick and easy way for buying CBD, then you may find brands for CBD online. But, you have to ensure that before purchasing you do proper research on each brand. While pure and genuine CBD is popular as safe. On the other hand, low-quality and fake products might be dangerous for you.

FDA does not do the regulation of CBD. So, it’s upon you to ensure that you are only making use of high-quality products. You must look for products that are from a reputable brand along with third-party testing. And you must avoid companies which are having a history of inaccurate labeling.

Consult With Your Doctor

You must consult with your doctor when it comes to working out with dosage of CBD which you should take. However, all doctors will not be capable of facilitating you with information on CBD. The reason is that it is dependent on the laws available in your state.

Some doctors might be capable of facilitating you with high-quality brands or recommend your dosage. Before trying CBD, you must talk to your doctor particularly if you are currently taking any medications.
