How much, how often and when one should take CBD Supplements?February 21, 2019 BY Janet Robson, N.P.
Those who are new to CBD supplements have many questions in their mind. Most of them are curious about how much amount they should take, how often they should take them and whether or not there is an optimal time of day for their dosage. In this blog, we’ll discuss answers to these questions. So, let’s begin.
How much amount of CBD supplements should I take?
When it comes to CBD, the dosage varies depending on the person’s body and condition for which he/she is being treated. Doses are measured in milligrams and can range from 2.5mg up to 300mg per day for severe and chronic conditions. Another factor which affects the dosage is the method of delivery. CBD supplements and edibles have much more effect on the whole body than topical CBD products. However, topical products like CBD cream and CBD oil are effective for soothing pain and can be easily applied to the skin.
The best way to figure out how much amount of CBD supplements works best for you is to initiate your dosage with the lowest amount possible and slowly increase it until you reach the desired level of relief from the condition. For beginners, it is best to start with a low dose of around 2.5 to 5 mg. If you use CBD regularly, you may need at least 25 mg of CBD dose to experience the desired effect.
In case, you are taking CBD dietary supplements for weight loss, I would suggest you take only the recommended dosage as instructed by the doctor or mentioned on the product packaging.
How often should I take CBD supplements?
There is no particular schedule that works for everyone. While some people take CBD supplements on daily basis to perpetuate regular CBD levels in their bodies, others prefer to take it when it is recommended or needed so that they can maintain the effectiveness in treating certain conditions. All of this depends on your body and what form you’re using or taking.
When is the optimal time to take CBD supplements?
Many people prefer to take their CBD supplements in the morning along with other supplements and medications or with their coffee and breakfast. But not all people are the same. Some like to take CBD in the evening with dinner or right before the bed.
Some people like to take it a few hours later in the afternoon for boosting energy when their exhaustion starts to kick in. However, for people who feel relaxed and sleepy after taking CBD supplements, it would be best to take before bedtime.
So, you can gather that there is really no time. It all depends on how you feel after taking CBD supplements and what time is easiest to remember for you.
After going through the answers of all the above questions, you can observe that there is nothing fixed or pre-scheduled when it comes to CBD supplements. Everything varies from person to person depending on the type of CBD supplement.
