Dosage is an essential aspect of CBD. CBD gummies are a tasty way to get CBD into your system, but how many should you eat? CBD dosage depends on a few different factors, and it can be challenging to find the right amount for you. This blog post will discuss CBD dosages and give recommendations on how much CBD gummies you should consume.
Types of CBD Edibles
CBD edibles are a fast and delicious way to consume CBD. New edibles are constantly popping up due to growing consumer demand for this tasty and natural relief. The most common is to add CBD to a favorite candy. It's a great way to build up a habit of consuming CBD without the earthy taste found in some tinctures.
Additional types of edibles happen to be around the kind of CBD. There are three main types of CBD:
Isolate: 99% pure CBD with Zero THC
Broad Spectrum: CBD oil with additional cannabinoids but has THC removed
Full Spectrum: Unaltered CBD oil and may contain up to 0.3% THC.
The onset for CBD gummies is typically around 1-2 hours. You will want to keep that in mind when using CBD for a specific daytime or nighttime benefit. For example, if you are trying to use CBD to help you sleep better, you'll want to time it a few hours before bed, so it is absorbed by the body at the right time. For daytime use, you'll want to take it as soon as you wake up.
For maximum effectiveness, you want to be taking CBD every day for the best results. Still, in general, there are no set times as to what time you need to take CBD each day for everyday use. It's crucial that whatever time you choose fits into how conveniently and regularly you take all other medication or vitamins/supplements.
Taking the dosage down
The easiest way to dose down an edible is to cut it up. For example, our gummies are 25mg of CBD per cube, so cutting one in half will bring it to 12.5mg of CBD. That's a great starting point for a CBD edible. Remember, you can always take more.
Unlike marijuana edibles, there are no horror stories of people taking too much and developing all sorts of crazy side effects. CBD is a gentle plant; it just helps you feel better when your body needs it the most.
The Goldilocks zone
If you are wondering "how many CBD gummies should I eat to feel the effects I'm looking for, you will need to experiment.
Finding your CBD dosage sweet spot is often referred to as the Goldilocks zone. Like Goldilocks, you want to see the amount that is just right. This will take some experimentation. CBD is a whole new way to take medicine, so always ask your doctor for their advice if you are in doubt.
Finding the right amount of MG (milligrams) per day or week may be complex and confusing. Still, it's worth taking some time on this critical decision. It will save you a lot of money in the long run.
The easiest way to do this is to document all of the main variables such as:
MG of CBD Taken
Time of Day
Taken before or after a meal (empty or full stomach)
Remember to start low and slowly increase the amount.
How much CBD does a typical dosage have
- CBD Capsules: 30mg CBD per capsule
- CBD Oil Tincture Drops: 33.3mg CBD per dropperful
- CBD Gummies Eat: 25mg CBD per cube.
Our customers tend to see relief with the most common amount with between 25-35mg of CBD per consumption. Keep in this is an average. Many factors like weight, body composition, CBD tolerance, stress levels, and genetics can play a role in the amount needed.
If you are experiencing relief with CBD, just be aware that it is possible to build up CBD Tolerance. This means your body requires more CBD for the same effect or may feel less of an impact from CBD altogether. Always consult with your doctor before taking higher doses.
Gummies vs. Chocolates
When it comes down to edible choice, we recommend consuming whichever one is your favorite. To get into the habit of consuming CBD, you want it to be pleasant and desirable.
One main difference between our gummies and chocolates is the type of CBD used. Our gummies are made using a CBD isolate. In contrast, CBD chocolates use full spectrum and contain trace amounts of THC.
Additional ingredient Gummies
A great thing about edibles is the ease of adding other beneficial ingredients. A popular addition to gummies is melatonin. It's a popular sleep aid and combined with a dose of CBD, it may provide the potential for a good night's rest. The dose on our melatonin gummies is 3mg with 25mg of CBD isolate. They are delicious and loved by our customers!
Gummy usage during the day vs. at night
It's important to know when CBD gummies are most effective. CBD could potentially help with sleep, anxiety, and chronic pain relief, but it works differently for everyone. In general, CBD is more active during the day than at night. We are naturally less stressed out and have a higher level of daylight exposure which helps regulate our body clock. CBD is still potent at nighttime, so if you need assistance sleeping or managing stress, CBD may potentially offer relief before bed.
How much can you take per day?
It's essential to know the CBD dose. CBD dosage can differ from person to person and daily depending on how your body feels or what symptoms you're managing. Still, CBD is typically considered safe at dosages of up to 166mg per day. It also depends on the type of CBD that's being taken - if it has a higher amount of cannabinoids like in some CBD edibles, you should take less. Lower content products like most CBD tinctures, capsules, oils, and gummies will allow for more significant amounts without exceeding recommended doses while providing effective relief from illness and chronic pain.
So how many CBD gummies should I eat per day?
Again that all depends on all your personal variables. Start low and work up.
If there are any specific medical questions, please reach out to your doctor as they are more in touch with your body.
MG per Edible
The CBD chocolate bars come with 300mg of full spectrum CBD. Each square contains 10mg and is seasonally available in milk chocolate and dark chocolate.
Gummies and your meals
A significant factor in the dosage and onset is if you take on a full or empty stomach. Consuming on a full stomach will provide a slower and longer onset. Consuming CBD on an empty stomach will provide a quick onset. It is recommended to consume with a meal similar to vitamins and supplements.
Also, the type of food you are consuming will affect how much and how fast your body absorbs CBD. Meals that take longer to digest will slow down the CBD from entering the bloodstream.
Are our CBD gummies safe to eat?
The CBD gummies are the safest CBD product to consume. CBD is processed through the liver, which also affects how quickly it metabolizes and enters your system. The CBD is extracted from hemp plants that contain ZERO THC, so you will not get high or experience any psychoactive effects due to CBD intake.
To date, no one has overdosed on CBD. CBD has no known adverse side effects and is safe.
It's important to note that CBD does not replace the need for a prescription or doctor's visit but rather works in conjunction with traditional medical practices.
CBD side effects
Some common side effects found when using CBD are dry mouth, decreased appetite, and sleepiness.
CBD can negatively interact with other medications as well. Consult your doctor before use if you are currently taking any medications.
How many CBD gummies should I eat to avoid side effects?
That's impossible to say as each human body is different. Starting with a low dosage will help you avoid any adverse side effects, and if you do experience any, you can cut back.
Determining the dosage amount
Many factors go into the correct dosage for CBD, and as we mentioned above, we encourage you to start slow.
Factors to consider:
Severity of symptoms
As you can see, each factor has many variables, so it will be a process of trial and error to see what CBD dosage works for you.
The goal is finding the right amount that provides relief without causing any side effects; this can take time, but eventually, you'll find your sweet spot! It's important not to underestimate how CBD affects different people, so we recommend trying out various doses.
What to look for when buying CBD Gummies
When purchasing CBD Gummies, you'll want to make sure it's a quality product.
A couple key factors you wish to make sure of when buying CBD:
The Gummy or edible is infused with CBD and not sprayed. A lot of cheaper companies buy candy and spray CBD on it. A sprayed CBD is not consistent and makes it impossible to dose. Sprayed CBD can also fall off, making it just an expensive candy with no effects. Infused CBD is a gummy made specifically for CBD with it measured out correctly and part of the gummy formula. That means each cube has a consistent amount providing a reliable way to dose out and figure out how many CBD gummies you should eat and get the benefits of CBD you are looking for.
Another critical thing is up-to-date lab results done by a 3rd party by the batch. Some fraudulent companies will get a test result on a good batch and keep it posted while they sell lower dosage products to boost profits.
Also, check out their reviews and the companies reputation online.
CBD Gummies should not be eaten with other CBD products. It is imperative to read CBD gummy and edible labels to make sure you are getting what you need.
