How to Properly Dose CBD Oil for Daily Use
Canabidiol (CBD), with all of its benefits, is considered to be a safe molecule with no side effects, potentially potent health properties, no psychoactive effects and no evidence of dangerous overdose or use. Since CBD continues to take hold in the cannabis community, and studies continue to show the amazing benefits of using CBD oil on a regular basis, you are probably considering giving it a try. While CBD continues to grow in popularity, guidelines for its uses, benefits, and most importantly, dosage, continue to remain in the air. To enjoy the incredible benefits of CBD oilyou need to know how effective it is.
Each person has a endocannabinoid system that is unique to it. CB1 and CB2 receptors, located in the brain and throughout the nervous system, interact with CBD along with dozens of other known cannabinoids. This is the reason why it is essential to understand each person's endocannabinoid system.
And because each person does not have the same brain chemistry, no endocannabinoid system behaves the same. When determining the most effective dosage of a CBD oil, this should be taken into consideration.
How to choose a CBD oil
There are many organizations producing and selling CBD oil, so there are several factors to consider. Some companies sell full spectrum CBD oil containing the full spectrum of cannabinoids and other store only sells CBD isolates, which are still beneficial but not as effective. Make sure that the hemp, which produces the CBD oil, is grown using sustainable, natural growth methods and that it comes from reliable sources. Finally, find a reputable company that sells it in a form you like, whether it's oil, capsule, or edibles.
What is the right dose of CBD?
Studies showed that the efficiency curve of CBD is a bell curve: that is, from a certain dosage, an increase in the dose will no longer lead to increased effectiveness, but a decrease in efficiency.
In other words, the best dose of CBD is not the highest but rather a moderate dose. Others studies suggest that the bell curve is only a problem when CBD is administered alone, in its pure isolate form but not in full spectrum.
The biphasic effect
Cannabis compounds have biphasic properties. This means that low and high doses of the same substance can produce opposite effects. Small doses of cannabis tend to stimulate, but large doses tend to have the opposite effect. This is the biphasic effect. For example, too much THC can amplify anxiety and mood disorders.
CBD has no known unwanted side effects at any dose. But drug interactions can be problematic. Too much CBD may be less effective therapeutically than a moderate dose. “Less is more” is often the case when it comes to cannabis therapy.
Finding the effective dose for CBD oil takes time, effort, and the understanding that it is not a “one-time” ordeal. Knowing the many benefits that CBD oil can have on the body should be a motivator in the treatment, as well as in a dosage that will help you get the results you are looking for.
How to calculate the right dose of CBD?
It is difficult to determine the correct uniform doses of CBD for each person, as the dosage needed varies greatly depending on the purpose of treatment, the severity of symptoms, and to some extent, body weight.
As a result, the best method of finding the right dose of CBD is to start with a low dose of 5-10 mg and gradually increase it if necessary until you achieve the desired effect.
Calculating the dose of CBD in the product may be somewhat complicated in itself, as some of the products indicate the total amount of CBD in the product in milligrams (mg), and others percentage .
Most people will probably prefer to avoid complicated calculations and simply find out how many drops of CBD should be taken instead of mg.
To do this, you must first calculate the number of mg of CBD in each ml of oil. For example, if your bottle of oil contains 25ml of oil and has a total of 250mg of CBD, each ml of oil contains 250: 25 = 10mg of CBD per 10ml of oil (10mg of / ML).
There are about 20 drops in a ml of oil, which means that each drop has 10:20 a.m. = 0,5 mg of CBD. A good starting dose will be within 10 drops in this case.
On the network you can find special calculators, such as those claim to recommend a dosage based on the data provided, such as the nature of treatment, height and weight but their accuracy seems uncertain ...
Is there an overdose of CBD?
A study from the University of Arkansas, published in the journal Molecules and evoked in Forbes attempted to determine the amount of CBD needed to cause liver damage (liver damage) in mice. In order to convert the “human” dose to a comparable dose in mice, the number of cases would have to be multiplied by more than thirty, the precision and relevance of this conversion are not clear. The authors of the report also strongly critical this conversion.
However, concern about liver damage associated with long-term use at very high doses is still a subject under investigation. Therefore, like many other medicines, it is recommended that you see or have a liver function test (simple blood test) from time to time to make sure everything is normal.
Medical dosage according to health professionalsé
La Mayo Clinic suggests CBD dosages based on scientific research, publications, traditional use, or expert opinion. The doses of cannabidiol and the duration of treatment depend largely on the disease.
- Appetite in cancer patients : 2,5 milligrams of oral THC with or without 1 mg of CBD for six weeks
- Chronic pain : 2,5 to 20 mg of oral CBD for an average of 25 days
- epilepsy : 200-300 mg of CBD by mouth daily for up to 4,5 months
- Movement problems associated with Huntington's disease : 10 mg per kilogram of CBD per mouth daily for six weeks
- Sleep disorders : 40-160 mg CBD orally.
- Symptoms of multiple sclerosis : Cannabis plant extracts containing 2,5-120 milligrams per THC-CBD per mouth daily for 2 at 15 weeks. An oral spray could contain 2,7 milligrams of THC and 2,5 milligrams of CBD at doses of 2,5-120 milligrams for eight weeks. Patients typically use eight sprays within three hours, with a maximum of 48 sprays in a period of 24 hours.
- Schizophrenia : 40-1,280 mg CBD by mouth daily for up to four weeks.
- Glaucoma : a single dose of CBD from 20 to 40 mg under the tongue. Doses above 40 mg may increase eye pressure.
Effective dosage for personal use
Like THC, CBD does not have “dosage guidelines”. In this way, CBD is treated more like a supplement.
Each CBD oil product will have a different dosage amount and a different percentage of CBD per serving. Fortunately, all it takes is a simple math, and you can use these numbers (along with the recommended starting doses above) to figure out how much CBD oil to take to get the right amount. . Here's how to do it.
Check the concentration
Concentration can be used to refer to the total amount or the total level of CBD contained in a particular product. Concentration is primarily measured in milligrams and to determine the correct dosage; you need to check the amount of CBD for each serving.
Your body weight plays an important role in determining how much CBD you need. Ideally, strong people may need to use the product in high doses to feel the effects while skinny people may only need a little and the effects are felt.
Below, we have produced a table of dosage suggestions based on your weight and the severity of your discomfort (pain level). Use these suggestions as a starting point and adjust your dosage up or down accordingly.
|<span style="font-size:0.8em">+ 11kg</span>||<span style="font-size:0.8em">12-20kg</span>||<span style="font-size:0.8em">21-38kg</span>||<span style="font-size:0.8em">39-68kg</span>||<span style="font-size:0.8em">68-108kg</span>||+ 110kg|
|No-light||4.5 mg||6 mg||9 mg||12 mg||18 mg||22.5 mg|
|Average||6 mg||9 mg||12 mg||15 mg||22.5 mg||30 mg|
|Severe||9 mg||12 mg||15 mg||18 mg||27 mg||45 mg|
Take notes of your dosage
First, read the CBD oil label to find serving size suggestions.
The label will show the amount of CBD (in milligrams) per serving. With this information, you can find the dose that is best for you. To help you with this, we'll walk you through calculating your ideal dose using a hypothetical CBD oil.
Below is the serving size and the amount of CBD per serving for our hypothetical CBD oil:
One serving: 10 drops Quantity per serving: 25 mg
From this information, we can write the following equivalence:
10 drops = 25 mg CBD
Let's say you are a 90 kilo man with mild pain. Your starting dose according to the table above would be 18 mg. Rather than taking too much too soon, we can figure out how much CBD is in each drop by dividing 25 by 10.
25 divided by 10 = 2,5
Each drop of CBD oil therefore contains 2,5 mg of CBD.
Now, we can take our starting dose in the chart (18 mg) and divide it by 2,5 mg to find out how many drops we need.
18 divided by 2,5 = 7,2
It takes 7,2 drops to deliver 18 mg of CBD. If the number after the decimal point is five or more, it is better to round up rather than down.
To find the right dosage for your situation, we strongly recommend starting small. Remember that the smallest amount of medication you can take to relieve your symptoms is the best.
Experiment with a certain dose for three days to give your body time to react to the medication. Adjust the dose up or down accordingly for the next three days.
If you experience any discomfort following a dose, reduce it immediately the next time you take CBD oil. You can always build up gradually from there.
From all of the above, we can conclude that the cannabis treatment will always have an individualized dosage for each patient, which will be done starting with low doses to gradually increase and at an appropriate rate to find the optimal dose for each particular individual. , knowing that this optimal dose will be defined by the balance between the improvement of the symptoms / tolerance to the side effects of the patient, and this will also depend significantly on the type of product and the route of administration used.
Simple calculation of a drop or drop equivalent in ml
The right dosage of CBD is all about balance. Adapt the dosage to your weight and assess the symptoms you want to relieve. The calculation is easy : 1 drop is equal to 0,05 ML, Formulas : divide the "volume" value by 20
1 drop = 2,5 mg of CBD concentration per 500 mg
1 drop = 5 mg of CBD concentration per 1000 mg
1 drop = 10 mg of CBD concentration per 2000 mg
1 drop = 15 mg of CBD concentration for 3000 mg
1 drop = 20 mg of CBD concentration per 4000 mg
