By now, you’ve probably heard about the massive benefits of CBD, but how much should you take to feel the results?
Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of over 60 active compounds in the cannabis plant. These active compounds, known as cannabinoids, affect your body in many different ways.
CBD isn’t psychoactive — meaning it won’t get you “high.” Instead, research suggests that it may help:
- reduce anxiety and depression
- improve sleep
- reduce seizures in people with epilepsy
- reduce pain and inflammation
- improve heart health
No matter what you are trying to achieve when using CBD, it is imperative that you dose with the correct amount to feel the benefits.
The correct amount you should ingest depends on a few different factors including:
- body weight
- your individual body chemistry and make up
- the condition you are treating
- the concentration of CBD in each pill, edible, or drop
It is best to start with a smaller dosage and increase it over time, rather than taking a large amount at once. For example, start with 20-40mg per day and gradually increase the amount by 5mg until you feel it is effectively treating your symptoms.
It is a good idea to keep track of the amount you are taking and whether or not your symptoms are getting better.
As you can see, there are a lot of factors that go into deciding the correct amount of CBD to take. Before ingesting CBD, you can speak to a Kushfly customer service representative or you budtender and they will be able to further assist you in the ideal dosage for your particular needs.
