Nourishing the Endocannabinoid System
The most interesting thing about CBD and other cannabinoids like THC is that they each effect each individual very differently.
Every human body, and every mammal for that
Just like we all have our own immune and digestive system, we all have our own Endocannabinoid system. Understanding this helps us to understand that cannabinoids work differently within our own
Some people may take a small amount of CBD and notice immediate effects, while others will take large doses of CBD over long periods of time and not necessarily notice any big, noticeable changes.
Beyond just the Endocannabinoid system, it is believed that we all have a unique Endocannabinoid tone, meaning that we all have different levels of tolerance and reactivity.
You Can Eat CBD?
There are many ways to consume CBD. Sublingual tinctures, topical application, and vaping CBD all provide the highest bioavailability rate of around ~30%.
Orally consuming CBD oil or eating CBD in the form of food or CBD gummies have around a 6% bioavailability rate.
This is important to keep in mind when dosing, as you will need higher concentrations to see the same effect when choosing edibles.
How Much CBD To Use?
There is no standard recommendation for CBD dosing, and using CBD is truly a self-experiment as each body will have a unique response and reaction.
A general recommendation is to start low and go slow, gradually titrating up in dosage as needed.
CBD is also contraindicated when taking medications that warn against consuming grapefruit products.
Again, working with a qualified health professional will help you determine which delivery method, dosing, and application methods are best for you.
The most common negative effects that are experienced are drowsiness, fatigue, anxiety or dizziness. If you are experiencing these symptoms, it may be necessary to change your dose or application method.
