With the enactment of the US Farm Bill of 2018, hemp-derived products like CBD gummies, oils, tincture, topical creams, etc., became federally legal. Because of this, they are easily available in grocery stores, supermarkets, pharmacies, and online shops specializing in cannabidiol-infused health and wellness products. Even though many people are using them, there are still many people who are skeptical about the usefulness of these products. One of the main doubts among the users of CBD edibles is regarding their dosage, and the purpose of this article is to clarify this doubt.
Before discussing the dosage of CBD gummies and other edibles, it is important to have a better understanding of cannabidiol. CBD is the main cannabinoid found in the hemp plant, and it became popular in recent years due to its many potential health benefits. Also, unlike THC, it will not make you high, and it can counteract the adverse effects of tetrahydrocannabinol.
CBD edibles refer to products made by infusing the goodness of cannabidiol (CBD). Usually, hemp-derived CBD oil is used as the active ingredient in them. It is used for making products like gummies, chocolates, brownies, and cookies.
The bioavailability of cannabidiol may be slightly higher when taken with baked goods because there are fatty or lipid-rich ingredients like butter, oils, etc in these food items. Remember that CBD is an oil-soluble compound and combining it with lipid-rich foods increases its absorption.
The Dosage Of CBD Edibles
The ideal dosage of cannabidiol (CBD) varies from person to person because it depends on individual physiological factors like weight, age, gender, pre-existing medical conditions, and CBD tolerance.
Dosing Tips: Edibles like CBD gummies have a fixed dose per serving, so you need not worry about measuring the amount of cannabidiol that you are ingesting. It is believed that 10mg would be a good starting point because it can give a good enough sense of pain relief, reduction in anxiety and stress.
Timing: It is recommended that users wait for two hours for experiencing the complete effects of CBD gummies or other cannabidiol-infused edibles. This is because they must pass through the digestive system so that CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream; this takes at least 45 to 60 minutes. Also, cannabidiol is slowly released, and because of this, the effects last longer.
Overdosing: The dosage of CBD gummies is fixed, and the risk of overdosing is limited.
