Make your CBD work for you! Here are 3 tools for success.
The general rule of thumb is to start with a low dose and gradually increase over time until the desired effects are obtained. That way you aren’t taking more than you need and wasting valuable product and money. Depending on the person and the state of their Endocannabinoid System a perfect dose could be anywhere from 3mg to 50mg-or even higher.
More is not always better! You may have better results with a lower dose so it is very important to keep track of how much you are taking, how you are feeling, and play around with serving sizes until you find your individual sweet spot. Give each serving size about a weeks trial before changing it up. If you experience headaches or fatigue back off your dose a little bit. If you experience an allergic reaction discontinue use right away.
1. Follow Directions:
I am sure this seems a little obvious but many people bypass the label suggestions and go right to customizing their supplement plan. Unless you are working with a doctor, don't do this. Start with the recommended serving and give your body time to adjust before adding more.
2. Create a Routine:
Take your CBD at the same time and place every day. Set it by your coffee pot or on your nightstand so you see it and remember to take it. Consistency is key. I recommend taking 2-3 small doses throughout the day for the best results.
3. Keep track with a journal:
In order to find your perfect dose or "sweet spot" I always recommend keeping a journal or notebook where you can jot down how much CBD you take, when you take it, and how you feel that day. Most of us can't remember what we had for breakfast much less how we felt 2 weeks ago. We also tend to not notice the absence of pain or discomfort until it comes back.
