Strain Specific Hemp CBD Oil by Appalachian Standard
Maybe you're a CBD Oil beginner, or maybe you have been using CBD oil tincture for a few months, but you aren’t certain on the best way to incorporate it into your lifestyle. First off, yay! (Also, click here to check out our craft hemp goodness, if you haven’t yet.) Second, by the end of this short read, you’ll know a good baseline dosage to help you incorporate Full Spectrum CBD oil into your life. As always, we advise you to speak with your healthcare provider regarding these products. The following information is our findings from being both hemp growers, processors, and through research that others have conducted. Being your own advocate and educating yourself are two principles I heavily push on the cusp of this exciting Hemp Movement. So, let’s dive in.

CBD Oil for Beginners – How Much to Take?

15mg to 25mg of CBD once or twice a day is what we suggest our customers begin taking. The tincture is absorbed sublingually (Under the tongue) and held for 45 seconds to a minute before swallowing. During this time, while you are determining your “Sweet Spot” for CBD, I suggest taking it an hour before bed. This allows time to feel the results of that dosage and if you are feeling the effects from that dose, you can go to bed and try a bit less the next day. After a few days of trying 15-25mg of CBD, if there is not a noticeable difference, increase to about 25mg to 50mg of CBD. If after a week or so if there is no difference, increase your dosage incrementally by 5-10mg per week until desired result is achieved. 50mg to 100mg of CBD is the high end of the spectrum, used for more intense symptoms (See Chart 1 below for phases). For example, in a large case series published online on January 7th of 2019 in The Permanente Journal titled, “Cannabidiol in Anxiety and Sleep” doctors gave patients from 25mg to 175mg of CBD daily. This study also concluded, “CBD appears to be better tolerated than routine psychiatric medications,” and went on to say, “CBD displays promise as a tool for reducing anxiety in clinical populations…”

Amount of CBD per Product Matters!

These dosing levels are easiest to track/quantify on our Full Spectrum Tinctures. For example, a full dropper (1ml) of our 3000mg, 30ml Full Spectrum Tincture is 100mg of CBD. Our 1000mg, 30ml tincture has 33mg of CBD in a full dropper, and our 500mg tincture has about 16mg of CBD in a full dropper. Our 15ml bottles have a different total bottle CBD strength, but each 1ml dropper has the same amount of tincture per dropper full. See below… Craft hemp flower and pre-rolls are contingent upon the strain. With our strain-specific COAs you will find, “Cannabinoids Total” (Click here for COAs). I will post another blog in the future on reading these third-party lab tests to determine CBD dosing. Dosing is very particular to and dependent on each person. Finding our sweet spot involves listening to our bodies, as everyone is different and faces different mental/physical challenges. Hemp products help one’s body achieve a better state of homeostasis, so you may not need to take as much as your friend to notice a difference. The beauty behind hemp products is that they can be incorporated into one’s life to help achieve or continue a healthy lifestyle. ‘Til next time Hemp Hustlas! Love, Lauren
