How to Use CBD Edibles and to Be Careful With Dosage
Like a kid in a candy store, CBD edibles make adults feel a bit of nostalgia while they satisfy their sweet tooth and take their daily dose of CBD all at once. There’s no denying that tasty edibles like gummies, lollipops, and hard candies are some of the most satisfying and fun ways to enjoy all-natural CBD.
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is the versatile and dynamic compound extracted from hemp (marijuana’s less psychoactive sibling) and used in a wide range of trending wellness products in recent years. Once a product that fell under-the-radar for many, CBD managed to skyrocket in popularity amongst the most unlikely consumers. CBD has made a lasting positive impression as the plant-based, holistic wellness option that works from young adults and seniors to professional athletes and working parents (and nearly everyone in between).
Because there are so many ways to enjoy hemp-derived CBD, all of which are entirely federally legal when purchased from a trustworthy hemp retailer, consumers are more pleased than ever with Mother Nature’s so-called “super-ingredient.” Delicious and easy to administer, it’s no surprise that edibles are one of the most frequently purchased, sought-after CBD products on the market today.
Properly Administering Your CBD Edibles
While CBD edibles are enticing, there are a few things to consider before you sink your teeth into those irresistible sugar-coated bites. Just because they look and taste like one of your candy-shop favorites doesn’t mean you can snack on them like you would a movie-theater treat.
Get the most out of your CBD edibles; it’s best to understand how much of the potent active ingredient is in each serving and administer the product adequately based on your individual dosage needs.
If you aren’t sure exactly where to start, here is a general breakdown for your reference. Based solely on body weight:
- An individual weighing up to 130 lbs may feel subtle effects when they take around 11 milligrams of CBD and profound impact when they take approximately 16 milligrams of CBD.
- An individual weighing between 130 and 230 lbs may feel subtle effects when they take around 18 milligrams of CBD and profound impact when they take about 26 milligrams of CBD.
- An individual weighing over 230 lbs may feel subtle effects when they take around 23 milligrams of CBD and profound impact when they take approximately 40 milligrams of CBD.
Remember, this is only a reference based on weight – not medical advice. There are many more factors to consider, such as existing health conditions, other supplements, activity level, diet, and more. If you take other medication, always consult with your physician before adding something new into your routine.
With this information in mind, it is best to start small. Read the label of your CBD Edible product closely, see how much is in each serving, and administer a low amount. Then, pay close attention to how you feel throughout the day and increase your dosage slowly and incrementally until you achieve the desired results. Because most CBD-infused edibles come in pre-measured portions, it’s straightforward to control your intake. Plus, if you are consuming a CBD gummy, you can bite the adhesive in half as you are attempting to find your perfect dosage, helping you quickly fine-tune your milligram intake.
Helpful tip: Many CBD beginners leave a notepad and a pen with their CBD bottle and jot down how much they consumed with each dosage. This serves as an easy way to remember exactly how many milligrams were administered and helps you keep track of the small dosage increases, if necessary, as you use trial and error to find your ideal amount.
Putting a few moments of time and effort into finding your perfect dosage when you begin taking CBD Edibles will maximize your wellness experience. Ensure you don’t take more CBD than you need, stretching your investment further while amplifying your results. It will also help you understand precisely how much CBD your body requires to function optimally. Plus, because CBD is non-addictive, your body won’t develop a tolerance to it, and you won’t have to increase your ideal dosage over time.
