CBD Oil Dosage
The dosage level of cannabidiol depends first of all on the severity of the disease. Of course, there is also a difference, with regards to dosing, between a 3-year old and a grown-up. The same goes for the difference between a grown-up and an obese person that is twice or triple the weight of an adult.
However, unlike with most biotech pharmaceuticals, you don’t need to be meticulous about it and adjust your dosage if you are a pound lighter or heavier than the average adult. CBD has virtually no side effects, and neither can you overdose it, so you can find which dosage works best for you by trying different levels.
CBD Maintenance Dosage
An average maintenance dosage of cannabidiol is probably 15 to 25 mg per day. This is enough to keep your healthy body balanced and boost your energy, mood, and focus.
For mild conditions, generally, you will have to take at least 40 mg to mitigate symptoms and with severe conditions, dosage can be as high as 100 mg. In case of cancer dosing, as much as 1000 mg is commonly used.
Does CBD Get You High?
No. It is rather impossible to get high from CBD. But, because so many people ask this question, let’s get into it a bit more. First of all, there are roughly two main types of CBD.
- Pure CBD
- Full-Spectrum CBD
Pure CBD does not contain any other cannabinoids than CBD, which is especially relevant. Since CBD has no cognitive impairing effects whatsoever, you can’t get high from Pure CBD.
Full-Spectrum CBD contains also other cannabinoids besides cannabidiol. A good full-spectrum oil also contains THC. THC is the cannabinoid that can get you high if you consume it rather high dosages (<10 mg). However, the legal limit of THC in Full-Spectrum CBD oils is way less than that (0.3%). Consequently, this is not enough to get you high with normal dosing levels of CBD. But finally, CBD has another trick up its sleeve.
CBD counteracts -to a certain extent- the intoxicating effects of THC and acts like an opposite. The concentration level of 0.3% is so low that the CBD can completely block the ‘high’ effect of this micro THC amount. Therefore, if you were to drink liters of full-spectrum CBD oil in order to get high, you would be in for a great disappointment.
Because in cannabis legal states, there are mixed THC/CBD oils, like 1:1 oil, you need to pay attention. Such oils obviously have a higher concentration of THC than a full-spectrum CBD-oil, which has far less. Consequently, these high THC oils are not called CBD oils.
New users probably take a couple of days to get used to CBD. Maybe they don’t feel any effect the first few days until their receptors have opened up.
But when you use it regularly and consistently, you will feel calm, peaceful, more focused and you look more positive at the world. So, its first effect is a nice body relaxation.
Other effects are:
- Pain relief
- Mood elevation (without overdoing it; so no giggling or anything like that)
- Inflammation is reduction and/or elimination
- Nausea and vomiting relief
