Uncle Funky’s Dosage Guide
CBD works differently for everyone; here’s our recommendation: use the full dropper once in the morning and increase dosage if needed. Make sure to keep track of your dosage and see how you feel over time.
You’ve bought a tincture from another company or us; you’re in observation mode. This means being careful to read lab results, understand them, and record your routine.
Here’s our guide to CBD dosing and techniques:
Trying to notice if you feel different, and looking for signs that the product is working.
That’s very normal with any supplement medication or change to your diet.
The advent of hemp-derived oil concentrates, non-intoxicating cannabidiol products, and innovative, smokeless delivery systems have transformed the therapeutic landscape. The national conversation about cannabinoids has entirely changed over the last few years.
Dosage and Beginners
Cannabidiol comes in various forms with a wide range of potencies, and its production and distribution have yet to become standardized. The goal is to take a broad enough dose to achieve therapeutic results and a small enough quantity to reduce adverse side effects.
Contrary to popular belief, ultra-low doses can be beneficial, and this comes at a low price-point.
The jury is out when it comes to scientific evidence that CBD does anything.
Concentrated oil extracts, tinctures, edibles, pre-rolls, loose-leaf hemp, and other products all make it easy to get some of these compounds, CBD, and terpenes, into your system.
If you’re getting relief from the dosage, then you’re in the Goldilocks zone. But if you’re feeling too tired or experiencing diarrhea, then the dosage should be lowered. The practice revolves around keeping track of how much you’re consuming. Starting small and working from there.
Cannabidiol (CBD) does not cause an intoxicating high like THC.
CBD can lessen or neutralize the THC high, depending on how much each compound is present in a particular product. 1,500 mg/day of CBD is reportedly well tolerated in humans, so it’s not a toxic substance in the slightest. Still, everyone is different. Just remember:
Beginning CBD Dosage
The adage “start low and go slow” is apropos for Cannabidiol therapy.
As for oral administration, one should keep in mind that it can take 60 to 90 minutes before the effects of a single dose can be noticed.
The use of ingestible CBD-rich products can be taken anytime. It’s recommended to use it with breakfast or dinner, or shortly before bedtime. Continue use, and monitor dosage until the desired effects are achieved.
If there are adverse side effects, reduce the dose to the prior amount.
Some patients may need to ingest their CBD two or three times during daylight hours and their night-time regimen for adequate symptom relief.
Cautious titration is urged: On days 1 and 2, start with one dose.
On days 3 and 4, increase the dosage to twice a day; and, if well tolerated, increase the dose incrementally.
Doses exceeding the average may increase adverse events or induce tolerance without improving efficacy.
Adverse events are dose-dependent. Very high doses are more likely to cause unwanted side effects.
For most medications, a higher dose will pack a more potent therapeutic punch. However, endocannabinoids have biphasic properties, meaning that low and high doses generate opposite effects. Small quantities tend to stimulate; large doses sedate.
It is important to note that every person on the planet responds differently and builds tolerance at different rates.
By introducing small amounts of CBD into your system and increasing the dosage slowly, you minimize adverse side effects.
CBD is a safe and forgiving medicine, but talking with your physician is a must.
