Welcome to this three part series to help you choose and use CBD Hemp Oil.
CBD hemp oil should be taken in divided doses 2 to 3 times per day. It is recommended that clients NOT TAKE CBD HEMP OIL RIGHT BEFORE BEDTIME. Although CBD hemp oil is used to improve sleep and is non-psychoactive it can induce vivid dreams if taken right before bedtime.
What is the Right Dosage?
Dosing suggestions should be used as a guide to help you get the most out of taking CBD hemp oil. Like most nutrition or dietary supplements, CBD hemp oil is not meant to treat any specific ailment, but rather provide the body with an opportunity to heal. Whether you change your diet, get more sleep, reduce stress or work to improve digestion, the idea is to reduce overall inflammation in the body. CBD hemp oil may be used as a complement to those efforts. Since CBD oil works differently in each person, it is important to determine what works for you. Each person’s experience may depend on a number of factors – their health, the health of their endocannabinoid system, the delivery method, and even the manufacturer.
It’s best to start with a small dosage of CBD and then slightly raise this dosage until you achieve the desired result. You must listen to your body and ask yourself if you notice any changes. A mistake that many people make is that they use CBD hemp oil for only for a short period of time and give up before it has a chance to work. In most cases, health issues have built-up for years, and it takes a while for the body to begin to heal. CBD can often lead to a rapid decrease of health-related complaints, but you have to give your body time to recover. Using CBD hemp oil can provide your body with these healing opportunities.
When first starting out, a commonly recommended dosage is between 5-15 mg of CBD oil hemp oil per day. Increase this amount by 5-15 mg per day during the first 3-4 weeks or until you experience a reduction of your symptoms. As the dosage increases, remember to divide the doses 2-3 times throughout the day.
Divide the dosages evenly throughout the day, rather than all at once. Divide the overall dosage between 2-3 times each day: morning, afternoon, and early evening. Remember; it is not recommended to take CBD hemp oil right before you go to bed. Although CBD hemp oil is non-psychoactive, it can induce vivid dreams.
If you do not experience a reduction of the symptoms after 3-4 weeks, you should increase the dosage until you experience the desired result. You should experiment a little. Examine what you are feeling and whether you think it works well for you. After a certain amount of time, you will have found the right dosage.
General benefit dosages are reported to be around 15 to 30 mg per day. Dosages above 180 mg per day generally do not provide any added benefit. These dosages may be cut down by ¼ based on a person’s experience.
Below are some general CBD dosage recommendations:
- Start with smaller dosages
When beginning CBD, it’s best to start with smaller dosages. Everyone reacts differently to various supplements. As with any new product, it is important to become familiar with how your body responds to CBD before increasing the dose.
- Make adjustments early
It’s rare, but occasionally CBD does not agree with someone. In that case, either discontinue use or reduce the dosage. Make adjustments early in your use to accommodate your body’s needs. If you don’t have problems with CBD hemp oil you can aggressively increase the dosage as needed. Remember, everyone is different and what worked for a friend or family member may not work for you. Either way, it’s important to be consistent and patient.
It’s a good idea to monitor the amount of CBD hemp oil you are taking. Start with keeping track each day of the number of dosages and timing. It’s easy to lose track of how much you are taking, which makes it a challegne to determine future needs.
