You’ve heard lots of people talking about how great they are sleeping, how the pain they’ve had for such a long time is finally better, and so much more that you are finally ready to give CBD a try. But how much do you take? Can you take too much? Are their any bad side effects?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is one of over 60 active ingredients found in the cannabis (hemp) plant. There are cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and more found in the hemp plant, all of which when working together have many benefits to both human and animal well-being.
There are two primary buckets that hemp falls into today: non-marijuana and marijuana (both medical and recreational). The marijuana side of it all has much more THC (50-100 times) than the non-marijuana side of it which has less than .3%. This amount is considered “trace” and does not get anyone “high”.
CBD is NOT psychoactive. It is, however, immensely powerful in its ability to help humans and animals:
- Sleep better
- Handle stress better
- Lessen anxiety, mood, and depression
- Reduce seizures in people with epilepsy, cerebral palsy, shaking and tremor disorders
- Soothe pain and inflammation
- Improve heart health
- Lessen headaches
- Improve symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- …and much more
Full Spectrum is the fullest strength CBD available, but only when it is extracted via low temperature CO2 processing techniques. Most oil is extracted by large commercial processors who need speed and high volume to make more money. Unfortunately, this degrades the product and lessens the beneficial impact in our bodies. Only get the highest quality premium CBD oil available or it may not work for you.
Dosage: Start with a small dosage of CBD and increase slowly until you reach your desired effect. Most people find that a dose of 25mg/day works very effectively. Many take it 30 minutes before bed and find it really helps achieve faster and better sleep as well as minimizing pain etc. It is easiest to adjust quantity via a CBD Tincture than other forms. So having some softgels and a bottle of tincture around may be a good idea.
