There is plenty of anecdotal evidence to support that CBD is helping people with medical conditions feel better. Do a quick search and you’ll see first hand accounts of people telling their story of the positive effects of cbd.
But what dosage of CBD did they take in order to feel better?
This article attempts to help with that quandary. But in order to do that we need to look at why cbd might be helping so many people across an array of medical issues. What do people who experience chronic pain, inflammation, depression, and anxiety have in common that makes CBD work?
But first the disclaimer: The content in this article is for informational purposes only always. Check with your doctor before incorporating CBD Oil into your stay healthy strategy.
Even though we suggest you consult with your doctor, some doctors are bit reluctant to provide medical advice.. That’s partly due to the cannabis political climate and lack of scientific studies in the cannabis industry. Also because there is only one legal FDA approved prescription medication which is used for treating rare forms of epilepsy.
But if your doctor is willing to help then stop reading this and follow the dosing they recommend. Otherwise we’ll do our best provide some guidance on a good starting point.
But first lets take a quick detour into a simplified view about the “why” CBD seems to be helpful.
Cannabidoil (CBD) is one of many cannabinoid compounds found in the cannabis family of plants. The reason CBD helps is because it interacts with your body’s EndoCannabinoid System (ECS).
Your ECS is a complex signaling-system comprised of endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes. These components regulates homeostasis, your body’s ability to maintain internal-balance.
Our body actually produces the endocannabinoids used in the ECS. If you experience chronic pain, inflammation, and anxieties, then your ECS normally kicks into action to help you feel better. But if your endocannabinoids are low then the ECS doesn’t function properly.
Plant cannabinoids like those found in the hemp cannabis plant mimics your body’s own cannabinoids. So your body uses the hemp substitute as it’s own which gives your ECS a boost.
So the question really becomes how much of a boost does my ECS need to help you feel better.
It would be nice if there was a test that measured our ECS levels so we could figure out whether we need high doses to fill the gap or just a few micro doses.
Since there isn’t anything like that, everyone goes through a trial & error process until they figure out what works for them Every person using CBD oil tinctures has gone through some amount experimenting to discover how much CBD they needed to boost their ECS.
So the bottom line you’ll need to go through that same process. You’ll need to take this matter into your own hands and figure it out what works best for you. To help you begin this journey we create a helpful dosing strategy chart that we hope will be a helpful tool in your process of self-discovery. You can download a pdf here.
The chart is for CBD Oil taken orally under the tongue. It shows you a suggested starting point based on your weight, intensity of symptoms, and concentration level of bottle purchased.
