How much CBD should I consume?

The amount of CBD you should consume depends on a few different factors including your individual biology, the delivery method, and the specific nature of your symptoms. There is no ideal, one-size-fits-all dose with CBD, so we always recommend starting low and going slow, gradually building up your dosage. Establishing a routine when consuming CBD will allow you to get a better understanding of the effects it’s having. If you’re not feeling your desired results after a few days you can simply increase the amount you are taking.

What is the best way to consume CBD?

There are various ways of consuming CBD from oils under your tongue to edible gummy bears. When deciding on how to consume CBD, a few things should be considered such as pain levels, areas of discomfort, and required speed of delivery. Topical applications work quickly and can be applied to specific areas. Anxiety or depression would benefit from a capsule or edible due to both containing exact doses giving you the option of closely monitoring the amount of CBD taken which can be adjusted where necessary. Applying CBD under the tongue allows for the CBD oil to be absorbed and transferred directly to the bloodstream. When absorbed under the tongue, CBD bypasses the digestive system and processing of the liver; therefore, the effects of CBD oil are not decreased by digestion.

Can CBD get me high?

CBD does not make you “high”. Although CBD comes from cannabis and hemp plants, it does not produce the same euphoric intoxication as THC. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce any psychoactive effects.
