When it comes to your success with using CBD, there are a few important factors to consider. One is the quality of the CBD used. Thumb Coast CBD products are manufactured by hand in small batches. Our products are all third party tested. We take great pride in providing an effective, high-quality product for our customers. We also use our products ourselves. When you choose Thumb Coast CBD, you know you are getting a high-quality product from a company who operates with the upmost integrity. Another important factor for a consumer and retailer is understanding dosing. If a client does not understand how to properly dose, he or she risks losing the potential benefits of CBD.
So, what is the proper dose? That varies from person to person. There is no set formula based on age, weight, gender etc. The recommended initial dose of CBD for adults is 20 to 25mg. It is recommended to start at a dose of 20 to 25mg of CBD for at least four days. This timeframe allows the body time to respond to that dose of CBD.
To help determine your correct dose, it may be useful to keep a journal or log. There are 4 things that are important for a person to record and to understand when they are figuring out their optimal dose.
1. The dose taken.
2. The time the dose was taken, and the time the person started to feel the effects of that dose.
3. The amount of relief felt with that particular dose.
4. The time that the effects wore off. (This will help to determine a person’s optimal dosage as well as determine how often the person will need to dose.)
For some, one dose per day is sufficient. Others may need to take two or more doses per day. It all depends on how an individual’s body responds to CBD. If a person is not getting the desired effects with the starting dose, then that person can start to titrate up their dose.
The reason we recommend to start with a low dose and titrate up as needed is that cannabinoids are known as biphasic and bidirectional compounds. With a monophasic compound, the more a person takes, the more effective the compound will be. A biphasic compound has an optimal dose. That dose is the point where the compound is working at its best or most optimal. If a person exceeds their optimal dose with CBD it can be less effective in relieving their issues.
For example, if a person is taking CBD for pain, a low dose may be more effective than a higher dose. Bidirectional means that a compound can do exactly the opposite of what the user is intending for it to do. For example, if a person is taking CBD for anxiety, it is possible that CBD can cause anxiety. So, if a person reaches an optimal dose to alleviate symptoms of anxiety and then they titrate up, they may experience anxiety.
There may be instances where people are very sensitive to cannabis. With a full spectrum product that contains THC this may result in a euphoric sensation similar to a mild “high.” If a person experiences this “euphoria” it may be a sign to titrate down. When a person is titrating down it is important to be aware of two things:
1. The dose at which they have alleviated or reduced the euphoria.
2. The dose at which they are still effectively getting relief from their issues.
It is common that a client who is in an extreme amount of pain requests the strongest dose of CBD that is available. This is where knowledge and good information are essential in getting the most benefit from CBD use
As you can see, it is very important to identify your correct CBD dose. At Thumb Coast CBD, we don’t leave that up to the consumer to determine completely on their own. We offer free consultations to all customers and those seeking more information about CBD. It is important to know that this is not medical advice, and is solely for the purpose of determining a CBD dose that is likely to be most effective for the client.
