CBD DOSAGE GUIDELINES

Dosage Guidelines

The information in this blog is only intended to be an informative starting point or guide, and should never be treated as medical advice.

Because most pharmacology curriculums focus on substances that can be patented there are very few medical schools that cover cannabinoid therapy in their courses. Furthermore, your trusted medical doctor is not permitted to prescribe cannabinoids, however, he or she can recommend it. This is primarily because there is no official recommended daily allowance.

When it comes to using cannabinoids for therapy or medicine, there is one thing that you can count on being universal, and that is that fact that everyone is different and will bring a unique set of variables to the table. Therefore, you will need to take responsibility for the dosage, using the rough guidelines and factoring in your unique traits. Furthermore, you will actually need to learn to listen to your body. You have to tune in to how your body responds to the cannabinoids or CBD and decide if the dosage is too much, too little, or just right.

However, there are some experts that have come up with dosing suggestions, which you can use as a starting point. Thanks to CBD Oil Review, a dedicated and trusted team of CBD industry experts, we have the following ‘Serving Standard’:

–    25mg of CBD, taken 2X per day

–    Increase this amount every 3 – 4 weeks by 25mg until you find desired relief or decrease by the same amount if it is too much.

Once again, we stress the importance that there is no best dosage that will work for everyone. In fact, dosages can change from person to person and can be as little as a few milligrams to more than a gram. However, if you are new to using CBD rich products and oils then you should start slow. This is how you will be able to gauge what the optimum CBD dose works for you. While there is no definitive guide to CBD dosing, there are some do’s and don’ts that will help you to discover what your perfect dosage is:

–    Bear in mind that cannabis has what is known as biphasic properties, meaning that taking a high dose can render the opposite results of a small dose. Therefore, when you are just starting out with using CBD for therapeutic purposes, obey the ‘less is more’ idiom.

–    While high doses of CBD can be safe and well tolerated it is important that you start with a low dose before slowly increasing the dose to higher concentrations or larger amounts.

–    Remember that your dosage depends largely on your individual physiology, what result you want, as well as your symptoms.

–    When you are taking multivitamins, they also build up within the body to produce their benefits- just like CBD. The similarities don’t, however, end there; CBD oil can help to regulate and manage your health by bringing balance to your endocannabinoid system.

Using your Weight to Determine your CBD Dosage

Check out the following CBD Dosage Range guide to help you find the right dosage using your weight as a yardstick:

Mild:

45 – 85lbs: 9mg

86-150 lbs: 12mg

151-240lbs: 18mg

241 + lbs.: 22.5mg

Medium:

45-85lbs: 12mg

86-150 lbs: 15mg

151-240lbs: 22.5mg

241 + lbs.: 30mg

High:

45-85lbs: 15mg

86-150 lbs: 18mg

151-240lbs: 27mg

241 + lbs.: 45mg

When Should I Take My CBD Oil?

People typically take CBD oil on one of the following three schedules:

–    1 – 2 times per day

–    Once every 2-3 hours

–    Every hour with Microdoses

Once you have discovered your perfect CBD oil dosage, you can experiment by following the 1-2 times per day schedule. This is an easy rhythm to maintain and will allow your body to adjust to the cannabinoid. If you feel that, after the first week, you want to increase the dosage than you increase the dosage slightly (for example from a ¼ dropper to ½ dropper) in the second week.

According to the Mayo Clinic, the following dosages are recommended for various conditions:

–    Chronic Pain: 2.5-20 mg

–    Epilepsy: 200-300mg

–    Huntington’s Disease: 10mg

–    Sleep Disorders: 40-160mg

–    Schizophrenia: 40-1,280mg

–    Glaucoma: single sublingual 20-40mg

Again, it is imperative to bear in mind that there are no perfect dosages that can be recommended. However, the Mayo Clinic has released these (and others that can be found on their website) recommendations for the public. Their recommendations are based on scientific research, traditional use, publications, peer-reviewed studies, and expert opinion.

Micro-Dosing

What is microdosing? Well, it is a trend of cannabis dosing that is built on the mantra; less is more. It is a practice that people use to take small amounts, or doses, of cannabis in order to experience all of the benefits but with no side effects.

Many people are using the microdosing principles to benefit from the THC cannabinoid, in order to avoid feeling the psychoactive effects. The doses are precisely measured and obey the ‘start low and go slow’ saying and are usually started off at a measured dose of between 5 to 10 mg.

But, while microdosing may be currently trendy in cannabis society only recently, it is not a new subject. In fact, the origins of microdosing in the western world can be traced to a certain Swiss chemist, Dr. Albert Hofmann- the man who synthesized LSD for the very first time. Dr. Hofmann, who lived to 102, is said to have been microdosing LSD for the last two decades of his life. By microdosing LSD, he was able to benefit from the compound without the hallucinogenic side effects.

By microdosing substances, you can manipulate your receptors and enjoy the desired response- but with less of the drug or compound.

Once again, there is no optimal dose that can be applied to everyone. However, a microdose is considered to be from 2.5mg up to 5mg. This is approximately one ‘inhalation’ on a vaporizer every couple hours. Or, it means a single bite from an edible- however, these all depend on the strength or concentration of the products.

At the end of the day, the objective of microdosing is to obtain the maximum benefit from the smallest possible dose.

Therefore, if you want to begin microdosing then begin with 2.5mg and work your way up until you reach 5mg.

How do I Control My Doses?

The easiest way is to use a product that allows you to strictly measure the doses. By using a CBD oil product, you can measure exact doses. If you want to use an inhalation method, vaporizers also offer easier ways to measure doses because some vaporizers can be programmed to limit the amount of product used.

Will I Feel Any Effects?

Because you will be taking much lower doses of cannabinoids, the effects will be extremely subtle. Users have reported feeling like themselves, only in a much more comfortable state. This means that microdosing is an ideal method for people that are looking for the therapeutic benefits of cannabis but do not want to feel as if they are in an altered conscious state.

The following conditions could be positively affected if treated using microdosing principles:

–    Alzheimer’s disease

–    Arthritis

–    Sleeping disorders

–    Nausea

–    Migraines

–    Parkinson’s disease

–    HIV/AIDS

–    Glaucoma

–    Anxiety

–    Chronic Pain
