What happens when you microdose CBD?
Welcome to the magical world of microdosing CBD! Microdosing has never been more popular than it is today. But while most enquiries around microdosing are focused on substances such as LSD, Mushrooms or Magic Truffles, not a lot of people know that there are quite some beneficial effects to be achieved when doing the same with CBD. In this article, we are going to take a look at how microdosing CBD works, and most of all: why it works. Let's take a look...
The powers of CBD
Have you ever suffered from insomnia, anxiety, chronic pain several other ailments? Then there is a chance that you may have read somewhere that CBD could help with your specific problem. If that is actually the case is still subjected to scientific research, but even scientist are still researching all of it, thousands of users around the world claim the substance to help with their problems. So if you are interested in this product as well, let’s take a look at how much you should you take and perhaps more importantly: which type of CBD is the most favorable for your specific situation.
Let’s kick off by explaining what CBD actually is. Cannabidiol, often abbreviated as CBD, is an extract of hemp plants that has invaded the health and beauty world in recent years. Various preliminary studies suggest that because of its anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects, it can support individuals suffering from addictions, Alzheimer's, concussions, fibromyalgia, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, sleep disorders and many other disorders. More scientific proof is needed to say with certainty this is the case.
Does microdosing CBD work?
Unfortunately, there is no miracle pill that solves all these problems for you - not even CBD, cannabis or anything other. Even CBD does not come in one form, but is available in many different forms, like tinctures, oil, pastes and many more. Do you know some restaurants even sell CBD hamburgers?! Well, it appears that microdosing CBD is also a good option, and it is therefore important to hit the sweet spot precisely when it comes to the dose of your CBD to achieve the best effects. You are actually looking for the minimum dose that still relieves your symptoms. But how do you find it? Well, by starting with a low dose, and building from there.
In her book 'Curing with CBD', medicinal cannabis expert Eileen Konieczny recommends starting with a 10 mg microdose, or even dividing it into two or three doses over the course of a day. After a few days or a week at this level, you can gradually increase the dose by five to ten milligrams at a time, the expert says. She is one of the many people who recommend microdosing CBD. One of her tips is to keep notes about your symptoms in a journal, as well as the dose taken.
One of the challenges in finding the right dose is knowing exactly how much CBD is in the product that you have purchased and how much is in each dose of that product. Our advice: go for a CBD tincture if you want to microdose CBD. These tinctures are perfect for microdosing because they allow you to slowly increase your dose in a way that edible CBD and capsules hardly offer.
Find the correct dosage
So how does the microdosing of CBD actually work? To start, look at the product label for the total milligrams (mg) of CBD in the container and per dose in the table on the package. It is important that you do not confuse your units: milliliters (ml) measure the volume of a liquid, while milligrams tell you the weight of the extract that was dissolved in the liquid of the tincture.
When microdosing CBD you are looking for the desired effect with the lowest possible dose. With this dose you will start to feel the benefit, but you will hardly notice any side effects. CBD now generally has virtually no side effects, but it still varies per person. It is important to take the time to find the perfect dose that works for your body. By keeping a close eye on the effects of a certain dose, you can be kept informed of any physical changes and you also know exactly when you need to increase the dose - or reduce it.
So while microdosing CBD might just do the trick for you, we always recommend visiting a doctor or your medical advisor when suffering from mental or physical problems. After all, they know best when it comes to your health.Back
