CBD dosing isn’t one-size-fits-all. While CBD is generally considered safe, it’s advisable to consult your healthcare professional before incorporating it into your routine. Factors such as metabolism, purpose, method of ingestion, and individual response all influence the ideal CBD dosage. Let’s explore how to navigate the world of CBD dosing for both yourself and your loved ones.
Personalization is Key
When it comes to CBD, each person’s needs differ. Weight isn’t the sole determinant of dosage; the speed and absorption rate of CBD play significant roles. The reason for CBD use and the chosen method of ingestion are equally vital considerations in determining the appropriate dosage.
Starting Low and Slow
Beginning with a lower dosage is recommended, as taking more than necessary offers no added benefits. Depending on your symptoms or goals, we offer guidance on the best starting dosage and method of ingestion. Typically, adults might consider a minimum of 25mg per dose, which equates to around 1ml from a standard 30ml bottle of 750mg tincture. However, daily needs for anxiety, pain, and sleep may vary between 50-200mg. Our 1500mg or 3000mg tinctures or higher dosages of other CBD-infused products can cater to these requirements. Remember, it’s easier to increase the dosage than to reduce it.
Ingestion Methods Matter
The method of ingestion significantly affects CBD’s effects. Sublingual absorption through tinctures provides high absorption rates and gradual metabolization. Edibles, on the other hand, pass through the digestive system, leading to slower absorption and metabolism. Inhalants, like vapes or hemp flower smoking, offer near-instant absorption but come with considerations like potential health hazards from smoking. Topicals are useful for pain relief but metabolize differently due to limited dermal penetration. The optimal method and dosage depend on the desired CBD amount and speed of effects, with many users benefiting from a combination of approaches.
CBD for Children: A Cautious Approach
CBD may be safe for children due to their endocannabinoid system. However, dosing requires careful consideration due to their smaller size and faster metabolism. Starting with 8.3 to 10mg, typically from a 250mg tincture or 300mg gummies, is advisable. Parents often begin with half these amounts and gradually increase to the desired dosage. We recommend THC-free products for extra safety. For children under 3, consulting a pediatrician is essential before introducing CBD.
Caring for Your Furry Friends
Pets, too, benefit from CBD through their endocannabinoid system. Dosage typically considers weight, with suggested amounts provided based on the milligram size of the CBD product. Available in 250mg and 750mg, larger pets generally require higher doses. Since pets metabolize CBD quickly, splitting dosages at least twice a day is recommended.
