Feeling out how CBD works for you
When you’re new to CBD, the first thing to know is that the effects take a few days to become noticeable. That means when you begin taking CBD, it’s good to be mindful of how your body responds to your daily CBD dosage. To discover its full effects, we recommend trying CBD for a full 30 days.
Your first 30 days on CBD is an important time to better understand your body and how it responds to CBD. Here are the questions many people ask when starting CBD, that we have answered for you below.
The many therapeutic benefits CBD oil has to offer are becoming more recognized, making people interested in getting started with CBD. The first 30 days of taking CBD can be a trial and error time in finding what works best for the individual. When getting started with CBD, people often ask;
- What kind of CBD should I take?
- How much CBD should I take per day?
- What time of day should I take CBD?
- How often should I take CBD?
- How long does it take for CBD to work?
After answering these questions, it won’t be long before CBD is part of your everyday routine.
What kind of CBD should I take?
For first time users, we always recommend starting with the CBD oil, which you take sublingually — which means a dropper of oil under your tongue for 30 to 60 seconds to let the CBD absorb through the mucus membrane in your mouth.
Some people have trouble taking our CBD oil under the tongue, and so they prefer the CBD capsules. CBD capsules are also worth considering if you’re experiencing inflammation in the lower digestive tract, as the capsules get the CBD further down into the gut.
People with chronic pain in a specific area often use a CBD lotion on the affected area. For best results, we recommend pairing CBD lotion with CBD oil or CBD capsules.
How much CBD should I take per day?
Everyone is different, and this is something you need to dial in for yourself. A full dropper of our 750 mg CBD oil is 25 mg, which we think is a great daily dosage. But some people take more, and some take less.
What time of day should I take CBD?
This answer is different for everyone. The important thing is to find a time of day to best incorporate CBD into your daily routine. If you’re suffering from body pain during the day, maybe it’s best to take our CBD oil in the morning. But if you’re using CBD because you’ve read reports that it can help you sleep, then taking CBD just before bedtime is a good idea.
How often should I take CBD?
To begin, start taking CBD once per day, a full dropper of 25 mg. See how you’re feeling and sleeping. For first time users, it can be good to “load dose” at first — taking larger than normal doses. That means, take a full dropper in the morning, and another full dropper before bedtime.
You have taken too much CBD If you feel groggy in the morning, or if you experience diarrhea symptoms. If you feel these side effects, dial back your current daily dosage to find something that works best for you.
How long does it take for CBD to work?
It takes a few days, and it’s not something that you’ll notice right away. Be mindful of your chronic pain, anxiety, and sleep patterns as you work through your first week of CBD. Keep journal entries to track sleep and progress. On the other hand, many people experience nearly immediate results from topical CBD products.
After one month of CBD: how will I feel?
After a month, you’ll feel different. But go ahead and stop taking CBD for a few days, and feel those bad feelings return. That’s when you’ll know what CBD is doing for you, and you’ll be ready to re-order here.
