It’s almost impossible to scroll through social media and news sites now without seeing an article promoting CBD oil. CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid the comes from the hemp plant. Unlike its more famous counter, THC, CBD has no psychoactive elements that make you feel high or impaired. Ojas CBD products do not contain any THC. CBD terpenes have a wide range of health benefits that we’re still discovering.
Some ailments it is believed to relieve include:
- Muscle spasms
- Chronic pain
It is safe, though it is unregulated by the FDA. So what is the proper dosage of CBD? For the person considering adding CBD to their supplements, there’s no set dosage, to begin with. Your friend Tom may use 50mg two times a day, but that doesn’t mean the same dosage will provide benefits to you.
Your body weight, height, age, and ability to utilize ingested cannabinoids all affect proper dosing. Other factors include the manufacturer of the oil and the quality of it, as well as the concentration of CBD in the product. So despite it being safe, the best approach for dosing is to start small.
How to Use CBD Oil
There are a variety of ways to use CBD oil. There are extracts, capsules, vapor, sprays, and even creams to use. Choosing which avenue is best for you may depend on what you’re using it for. For example, if you’re an athlete trying to reduce soreness or have arthritic pain in joints, topical may be your top choice. If you’re dosing for insomnia and anxiety, a tincture may work for you. Many people who are looking for help with anxiety (or don’t like the taste) use capsules or edible candies containing CBD.
Don’t get overwhelmed with all the choices and hype surrounding CBD oil. When looking to start, speak with your doctor and start low. You can always increase as you find the dose with maximum efficacy for you. You’re looking for relief to last at least a few hours or more. So if you find that a low dose is becoming ineffective sooner, it may be worth increasing the dose.
