CBD Dosage Information – not sure how and when to take CBD?

When it comes to CBD Dosage Information, CBD (Cannabidiol) dosing is not a precise science as most CBD companies produce a wide variety of products, with differing strengths. Everyone’s journey into CBD (Cannabidiol) is unique, but a good place to start is on a low dose, listen to your body and work your way up to find your sweet spot, increasing the dosage week by week until you get the results you’re after.

If you are just starting out and want to test CBD and its effect for the first time, it’s good to start with a low strength CBD product.  We would suggest CBD oil. This kind of CBD can be taken under the tongue and you can easily adjust the dosage by increasing the number of drops you take.

When buying CBD there is a direct correlation between strength and price.  To make an informed decision about ‘CBD Dosage Information’ you have to look at the price / mg of CBD.  When you do the calculations, you may find that a higher strength CBD product will actually work out cheaper in the long run.

Quality CBD is very expensive to extract so don’t expect to find a high quality CBD product for ‘buttons’… as an approximation you should expect to pay somewhere between £25 – £150 per bottle.  Obviously this also depends on the size of the bottle.  Over time, as more competition enters the market, the price of CBD products may decrease, but in the meantime please remember the old adage that “you get what you pay for in life”.

Points to remember when choosing a CBD product:

  • if this is the first time you are taking CBD a lower strength oil is a good place to start.
  • which CBD products gives maximum absorption into your bloodstream?
  • which delivery method do you prefer?
  • what is the reason you are taking CBD in the first place?  Some conditions may require a higher strength product.
