If you’re new to CBD, you may have a lot of questions about how to get started. Finding the right CBD dose for your needs is crucial to CBD’s effectiveness in your life.
The Right CDB Dose for Beginners
As with any natural supplement, how much you take of it matters. However, a CBD dose will vary from person to person. It is important to keep in mind that doses will affect everyone differently, and what works for someone else perfectly probably won’t be perfect for you. There is no “right dose” for everyone, but there is a right dose for you.
More Isn’t Always Better
When starting out with a CBD dose, slow and steady wins the race. We urge our customers to start with a low amount of CBD; taking one 5mg dose of CBD once a day for a week will give you a base to start assessing your symptoms and relief. Once you have taken your small dose for a week, if you feel as though you’d like the CBD effects to be stronger, you can take a larger dose. We recommend that any time you increase your CBD dose that you stick with it for at least a week before raising the dose again. This will allow you to closely monitor any side effects you may have.
As stated above, its a good idea to closely monitor yourself while figuring out how CBD works for you. In fact, we recommend keeping some sort of a journal or document to record your experiences with CBD in. Keeping track of what doses, how many times a day you are taking these doses, and how you feel after taking them will go a long way to finding your perfect CBD dose.
Possible Side Effects
When you begin taking CBD, it is important to know about the possible side effects that you may encounter. Keeping track of these side effects will help you to find the right CBD dose to suit your needs. While there are some side effects of CBD, it is important to note that, even in very large doses, it is not possible to overdose on CBD. In fact, the World Health Organization does not even consider CBD to have side effects in normal dose ranges; however, they do acknowledge that there can be side effects present in large doses.
Possible side effects of taking CBD can include:
- Upset stomach
As we said above, we encourage you to keep written track of your CBD usage; if you are feeling side effects like the ones listed above, it is a good idea to record that in your journal, as well. That way, you might notice a pattern of correlation between a certain dose and symptoms you are experiencing. If you find that a dose of CBD is too much for you, taper down your intake to the last dose that was comfortable and go from there. Remember, slow and steady wins the race when finding your perfect CBD dose.
CBD has been gaining in popularity over the last few years, but we think its always a good idea to do your research and get a game plan together before starting any supplements. We urge you to start small with your CBD consumption, monitor your experiences and record them, and go slow with upping your doses.
