The most common question anyone new to CBD has is – how much CBD should I be taking? With such a simple question one would anticipate to be presented with a straight forward answer but with the wide range of CBD products available in terms of strength it is not as simple as a single recommendation for all consumers. Today we’re going to focus on consuming CBD tinctures and how to help find the proper dosage for anyone new to consuming CBD.
When consuming a sublingual the liquid should be dropped under the tongue and held in the mouth without swallowing for around 60 seconds. When CBD oil is consumed sublingually it is absorbed in the mucous membranes making it one of the most popular and effective ways of consuming CBD.
If it’s your first time using CBD or if you’re looking to just try out a new product it’s always best to begin with small doses, as with any new product, it is important to become familiar with how your body responds. Pay attention to the amount of CBD in the products you purchase, typically you won’t need to consume nearly as much if you’re trying out a sublingual containing 500mg CBD compared to a product that is only 50mg CBD.
This process may take some time, it’s important to not give up just because you’re not feeling the results you anticipated right away. It’s not abnormal to find two people to require vastly different amounts of CBD to feel the desired effects. Don’t be afraid to up the dose, just remember to work yourself up slowly and let your physician know before you start taking CBD – especially if you’re seeking alternative forms of relief from chronic illness and already take medication.
