You may have heard of someone using CBD or suggesting you try, particularly if you are a victim of anxiety, pain, or other chronic conditions that impact the mind and body. The Cannabis plant is home to several active compounds, one of them being Cannabidiol (CBD). Another well-known active compound is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the thing that gets you the all famous cannabis ‘high.’ CBD greatly differs from THC primarily due to its lack of psychoactive traits, which means you can attain similar medical and therapeutic benefits in CBD as you would with THC but without the feeling of being ‘stoned.’
Benefits of CBD
Though it may be true that products that stem from marijuana or THC specifically may be more effective than regular hemp or CBD, they also leave you feeling high and not to mention it is still not legalized for medical reasons in some states. However, with CBD, you do not have to be deprived of the plenty of benefits CBD has to offer, some of which include:
- Treating anxiety disorders
- Addiction problems
- Preventing and treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Epilepsy and seizures in children
- Mitigating effects of cancer treatment
- Improve sleep
- Reduce depression
- Promotes the functioning of a healthy heart
Different forms of CBD
Fortunately, CBD has tons of forms you can choose from, allowing you to select one that best fits your needs and ease. Here are some of the CBD forms but are not limited to:
- Oils and tinctures
- Soothing creams and lotions
- Capsules and Pills
- Gummies and other edibles
- Vaporized CBD oil and E-cigarettes
How much CBD should I take?
You obviously must be wondering, with so many health benefits attached to CBD, what is the ideal recommended dose to get the most out of the benefits.
CBD is an active compound (out of the 60 others) and is part of the cannabis plant; these cannabinoids (active compounds) impact your mind and body in different ways. Be rest assured that CBD is not psychoactive, and you do not have to worry about ‘getting high.’
There is no recommended dose up till now for CBD, as the Food and Drug Administration did not regulate it yet. Therefore, it can be a bit tough when trying to figure out how much you should be taking and is there such a thing as ‘too much’ or ‘too little’ of CBD/Hemp.
Regardless of the medical issue, you are trying to address with CBD, remember that you need to give yourself an adequate amount, or the dose might not be of any use for you.
While it is recommended you consult the doctor for any confusion and possible risks, factors such as your weight and medical condition are also kept in mind when considering a dose. Experts suggest starting with the lowest dose, typically just a drop (especially if using an oil or tincture), and then gradually increasing the intake based on how your body reacts to it.
