Why People Need Different Dosages of CBD
What to Consider When Choosing a CBD Dosage

If you’re looking to CBD for relaxation and wellness, you might be frustrated to find there’s no dosage guide posted online just yet. No one has ever overdosed on CBD, and research has shown daily doses of 300 mg for up to six months and 1500 mg for up to four weeks are safe, but it’s never a bad idea to educate yourself before diving into a regimen. Too small a dose won’t be effective, and too large an amount can cause uncomfortable conditions like dry mouth, lowered blood pressure, and drowsiness.

Reason for Using CBD

CBD products are used to alleviate a surprisingly large variety of ailments. While research is still catching up to some of the most impressive medical applications, many users and professionals report significant relief from symptoms of headaches, joint pain, muscle pain, anxiety, sleep disruption, and inflammatory skin conditions. Depending on an individual’s reason for using CBD, the dose might need to be more or less than would be used for other applications. 

Physiological Factors

As with most oral treatments, the dose will depend on the person’s body. Someone with a lower weight will typically require less than someone with a higher weight. A high metabolism might require a higher dose to be effective because it causes the body to break down the ingredients faster. Each person is different, and their individual characteristics have to be considered when calculating a dose.

Product Discrepancies

One of the most significant factors in dosage is the product itself. The delivery method, brand, strength, and quality of the CBD product will determine whether someone needs to take more of it to feel relief. CBD can come in tinctures, gummies, oils, creams, and more. If you look online or in a shop for tinctures, you’ll see a wide range of concentrations for each type of product. Each brand has its level of quality and purity based on their extraction method, growers, etc. If the product is made using an isolate, which means only the CBD without the additional terpenes from the plant, it might take a higher dose than a full spectrum product would take to be effective.

Nesa’s Hemp

Nesa’s Hemp is organic hemp oil formulated to require a lower dose by maintaining purity and preserving the essential extracts. CBDa is a compound that’s usually burned out of CBD oils during the extraction or delivery processes. Nesa’s uses cold-press extraction and ultraviolet, light-filtering bottles to protect the CBDa from breakdown.

CBDa improves the efficacy of CBD oil because it works differently to combat pain, inflammation, and anxiety. CBDa blocks COX-2, the enzyme associated with inflammation, without blocking COX-1. NSAIDs work by blocking both COX-1 and COX-2, but by blocking COX-1, they can cause damage to the renal system.

How to Calculate Your Dose

Until more research is conducted about dosages for specific ailments, the best way to calculate your CBD dose is to start with the recommendation on the bottle if one is provided. CBD takes time to build up in your system and become effective, so you won’t know how well a dose is going to work for you until you’ve taken it regularly. If you’re not satisfied with the results of the recommended dose, increase your daily dose by 5 mg per week until you reach a level of comfort you’re satisfied with.

If there’s no recommendation on the bottle, start from a baseline of 20 mg per day. Adjust the dose according to the factors mentioned like weight, metabolism, ailment, etc. Then follow the same guideline of increasing your daily dose by 5 mg per week until you reach a dose that works for you. It’s important to note that too high of a dose can be ineffective, so you should start as low as possible. According to a recent study, CBD is only effective against anxiety and possibly other conditions within a certain range.
