Proposed in different forms (oils, tea, edible), the cannabidiol (CBD) - one of the cannabinoids naturally present in cannabis but not psychoactive - is often used for its relaxing properties. But consumers don't always know which dosage to apply. Holyweed informs you.
CBD oil is an easy and convenient way to consume CBD. Most often, it is applied under the tongue in order to make it spread quickly in the organism. It can also be consumed in capsule form: a technique adopted more generally by consumers who would not tolerate its taste or texture.
Finding the right balance: being patient and listening to your body
The ideal dose doesn't exist: all consumers are different and therefore dosages can vary depending on their body size and endocannabinoid system. In order to find the one that suits you best, it is advised to start with small doses (5mg) and gradually increase until you obtain the desired effects. It is also possible to feel the need to multiply the number of takes during the day. In this case, it is very important to keep a track of any potential side effects and to remain vigilant about the total consumption of CBD. Be careful: a high dose is not synonymous with better effects! Reaction times may vary among individuals and it takes time to find the ideal dosage. In brief, patience is the key word and excesses are not recommended.
The duration of your CBD cure will also depend on your objective. Do you use CBD to relax, to relieve pain or to help you fall asleep? Depending on the relief you are seeking, doses may vary. In general, minor ailments require between 2.5 and 20mg per day, insomnia between 40mg and 160mg, while a simple relaxing effect can be felt from 5mg.
Consuming large amounts of CBD is not without risk and an overdose may result in drowsiness. It is therefore imperative not to drive a vehicle or perform a risky activity following the use of CBD.
