My question is what concentrate mg of the oil should I take and for how long. Any brand that you may suggest that are available in the UK. The Editor March 21, Hello Roy,We will attempt to help you as much as possible. As you know CBD is a new treatment option so there are almost no scientific studies and very few case studies available. However as a general rule the best thing to do is just to start.
We say this because everyones body metabolizes CBD at different rates. So the best way to find the proper dosage for you is just to start. The good news is that feeling sleepy is about the only side effect of overdosing CBD, so experimentation is pretty safe.
What we recommend on our site is to start with 25mg of CBD taken as often as you need it throughout the day. If you find this works stick with it. If you find you need more, or are having to take it too many times during the day, then take more such as 50mg with each serving. How much CBD you absorb depends on how hard and long you inhale, Earleywine says. In addition, labels on vaping devices can be especially confusing, he says.
It can be hard to guess what your dosage really is under some of those situations. Consider trying the lowest dose first—in this case, a single inhale—then wait a few minutes and see whether there is an effect, such as pain relief or reduced anxiety.
If not, try another. And avoid holding your breath after inhaling, because that can irritate the lungs. Tinctures usually in oil form are taken by dropper or spray, straight into your mouth.
The CBD used in these forms is extracted from marijuana or hemp plants using pressurized carbon dioxide gas or a solvent such as ethanol.
The solvent is then removed under vacuum, Backes says. The remaining CBD is diluted with an oil, such as sesame or coconut oil, to improve the taste and preserve the cannabidiol.
Tinctures are the second-quickest method to absorb CBD, after smoking, Earleywine says, typically taking about 15 to 30 minutes. The quick action could make it especially useful in treating pain or anxiety.
If needed, ask a retail salesperson for help or get out your calculator to calculate the amount of CBD per dose.
The price per bottle could be more for a product with a higher CBD content per dose. Earleywine suggests you drop a dose of tincture under your tongue and hold it there for 30 seconds before swallowing, or apply a single spray of the tincture on the inside of your cheeks. Doing so speeds up the effects of the CBD. If you add a CBD tincture to foods or drinks, it could take up to 30 minutes for it to enter your bloodstream.
And ongoing conditions such as chronic pain are likely to better respond with daily doses, he says. Shake the bottle well before using, Backes says, because CBD often gets stuck on the side of the bottle.
Topicals are rubbed directly onto sore muscles or joints, where they may ease pain by reducing inflammation, Earleywine says. CBD balms typically include extracts mixed into a fat, such as beeswax or coconut oil. That recipe not only makes it easier to spread the product on your skin but also allows the CBD to penetrate. That could make them safer—which could be important if you use CBD on a regular basis—considering how little is known about the long-term safety of CBD and other cannabis products.
To be effective, products probably need to have a lot of CBD—which can make them expensive, Backes says. In a retail store, ask whether you can sample the product first, says Tagliaferro of Hemp Garden.
She says some people start feeling effects almost immediately after rubbing it on. Others say they notice relief later in the day, and return to buy the products.
