CBD & CANNABIS DOSING

It’s no longer a question whether marijuana has medical value. Now it’s about figuring out how to optimize your therapeutic use of cannabis to suit your lifestyle and situation.

Cannabis therapeutics is personalized medicine. There is no single CBD:THC ratio or dosage that’s optimal for everyone.

Typical CBD dosing guidelines are

1-6mg CBD per every 10lb of your body weight

If you weight 150lb a suggested starting dose would be 15mg – 90mg

It is recommended you start with the low dose for 2 days.

these are just general guidelines. Some people need significantly more, while others need significantly less. For example, if you are living with extreme chronic pain, you will likely require a higher dose on a daily basis than someone who takes CBD occasionally to cope with situational anxiety

For most medications, a higher dose will pack a stronger therapeutic punch. With cannabis, however, it’s not so simple. THC and other cannabis components have biphasic properties, meaning that low and high doses generate opposite effects. Small doses of cannabis tend to stimulate; large doses sedate.

In practical terms, this means that starting low and gradually upping the dose of cannabis will produce stronger effects at first. But, after a certain point, “dosage increases can result in weaker therapeutic effects,” according to Dr. Sulak

PERSONALIZED MEDICINE

For people as well as pets, cannabis dosage must be individually determined. Several factors come into play, including one’s overall health and endocannabinoid tone, which are influenced by diet, exercise, sleep patterns, day-to-day stress, and genetics. Cannabis is best used as part of a healthy lifestyle.

DOCTORS & CANNABIS DOSAGE

Optimizing therapeutic cannabis use can be a challenge – for doctors as well as patients. Most physicians never learned about cannabis in medical school and, according to a 2017 survey, few feel they are qualified to counsel patients about dosage, CBD:THC ratios, different modes of administration, and potential side effects. This is why it is so important to get reputable products from people that are providing highest quality medicine and up to date education.

MICRODOSING FOR BEGINNERS

One of the common misconceptions about cannabis therapy is that you have to get high to attain symptom relief.

ultra-low doses can be extremely effective, sometimes even more so than the other high-dose extreme

CBD and THC used together create a synergy and the increase the positive effects of each other 

Cannabis for SLEEP

CBD for sleep depends on your metabolism among other factors. Some people only need 5 mg others need upwards around 160mg of CBD.

Ingesting 1.25 to 2.5 mg THC shortly before bedtime for two days is a good place to start for people with little or no experience using cannabis.

As for oral administration, one should keep in mind that it can take 60 to 90 minutes before the effects of a single dose are felt.

If there are no unwanted side effects, increase the bedtime dose of THC by another 1.25 to 2.5 mg for the next two days. Continue to increase the dose of THC by an additional 1.25 to 2.5 mg every other day until the desired effects are achieved.

How long does it take to feel the effects of CBD oil?

How long you’ll have to wait to feel the CBD, as well as how long it will last, depends on which administration method you choose.

  • CBD products taken orally, such as edibles, powders, or capsules, tend to have longer-lasting effects, but onset takes longer, too. Before it can enter your bloodstream, where it begins to interact with your endocannabinoid system, it has to go through your digestive system first (which can take 30 to 90 minutes).
  • CBD oil administered sublingually(under your tongue) We recommend this method for taking our tinctures. It has a much faster onset, because it bypasses the digestive system and enters your bloodstream directly under the tongue. Users start to feel effects within 5 to 20 minutes.
  • CBD extracts inhaledwith a vape pen provide the quickest effects, making them ideal for acute symptoms. After inhalation, users start to feel the effects within a few minutes. However, effects only last for a few hours.
  • CBD oils applied topically, such as lotions or balms, are best for treating targeted areas. The oil can be massaged directly onto the area to relieve pain or inflammation within minutes. Effects can last for several hours.
  • Cannabis is a safe and forgiving medicine. Figuring out how to make the most of its health-enhancing properties may involve some trial and error – and we are here to help you find your optimal dose!
