If you walk into any dispensary, any budtender will tell you that when it comes to cannabis, more THC or CBD is not necessarily better. Cannabis with a higher percentage of THC does not necessarily mean you will get more stoned and more CBD does not make you healthier.
1. Listen to your body
If you are not feeling like yourself or if you are not getting the desired results, you may want to consider cutting back your dosage. In the beginning, it’s important to experiment with increasing and decreasing your dose, according to what makes you feel better. You need to pay close attention to your body and familiarise yourself with what dose works for you. Some people keep a journal or use an app to keep track of their dosages and results.
If you are still confused in the beginning, you can try using a CBD dosage calculator. Various CBD dosage calculators have surfaced on the internet. Using a CBD dosage calculator can help in determining the CBD dosage that is appropriate for you. A CBD dosage calculator will calculate the total CBD within a bottle and divide it by the number of milliliters within the bottle. From there, you should take your weight into consideration, and using publicly available tables you should be able to determine a starting point for the CBD dose that’s most appropriate for you.
While CBD has many benefits, it should be treated the same as any medicinal treatment. Don’t just buy and start taking CBD immediately. First, consult with your health care practitioner and try to find out if CBD is right for you.
2. Purchase a good brand
With all the CBD and cannabis companies out there, it’s important to do your research, read labels and find a good quality CBD product. Find a brand that is as raw and organic as possible, so that you can benefit from all the plant’s properties/benefits, without destroying the oil’s structure and compounds.
Nordic Oil has CBD products of the highest quality made of certified hemp, using CO2 extraction, which is one of the most gentle methods of extracting CBD. Our products are full-spectrum oils, meaning they contain the full spectrum of cannabinoids, such as CBDa, CBD, CBG, CBC, THCa and more. This also means that all our products contain traces of THC, (max. 0.3%)
Our full spectrum CO2 extract CBD rich oil is European grown with no herbicides, pesticides, or solvents and does not contain ingredients such as fillers, additives, flavorings, or preservatives.
3. Don’t forget to take your CBD daily
It’s important to be constant with your CBD for maximum results. Missing a dose will lessen the amount of CBD in your system, thus making it less effective. Try spreading out your dosing schedule. Sometimes it might work best to take a smaller dose four times throughout the day instead of one large dose in the morning or evening. This is another reason why experimentation is important — and understanding your body.
It’s very important to remember that what dose works for one person might not work for the another. The period of time it took for the CBD to take effect for me was completely different than for my brother. Just as people react differently to medications, we all react differently to CBD as well. So, be patient and experiment while listening to your body, and you are likely to get the results you desire.
