This is dependent on why you have decided to take CBD in the first place. Are you searching for a sense of calm and balance in your life? Are you looking for a way to alleviate aches and pains? Maybe you’re having trouble sleeping?
A general rule of thumb is to take your chosen dose of CBD in the morning and another dose in the evening. As always, please read all instructions before taking a new supplement. Different products will have different levels of CBD in them (average amount ranging from 10 mg – 40 mg) and some products will have other natural compounds (such as chamomile) present, which may alter how it affects you.
As mentioned before, the beauty of using a supplement like CBD is that you can customise how you take it. For example, if you are struggling with insomnia you can prioritise taking a dose an hour or so before bed. If you are nervous about having to attend a large event, you can begin dosing a few days beforehand.
CBD will affect everyone who takes it differently – some may feel focused and energetic whilst enjoying the benefits of CBD, others may feel calm and relaxed.
This is why it’s important to start your CBD journey with a low dose to trial how it affects you. Different products and methods of consumption will also vary how your body responds.
For example, taking a soft gum infused with energising vitamins will have a different effect on you than a product that has been engineered to utilise CBD’s relaxing properties, like the Evielab Relax CBD Micropearl Capsules.
Always start with a low dosage. This way you can gauge the effects of CBD and gradually increase your dosage if need be. Nothing alarming will happen if you take too much, but it will be harder to experience the positive benefits of CBD.
For those starting CBD for the first time, please note that it can take a few days to a week for its effects to fully manifest.
Droppers: With a dropper, it’s easy to tweak or subtly increase your dosage safely. Consuming CBD orally (held under the tongue) means it’s quickly absorbed. One of the downsides of using a dropper is that it can come with an earthy aftertaste. Several manufacturers have started integrating other flavours, such as juniper lime, to make using the dropper a tastier experience.
Capsules: One of the benefits of droppers is that you can tweak and change your dosage at will, however you’ll always know exactly how much CBD you’ve taken with a capsule. Again, this method is an easy addition to your morning routine, and you can avoid the ‘earthy’ aftertaste you get with droppers. Another benefit of capsules is that you can find the perfect blend (infused with other natural compounds) that suits your needs.
Gummies: If you want to combine your daily multi-vitamin with a dose of CBD, gummies may be the perfect method for you. It’s easy, it’s tasty, and you can get all your goodness in one go. It’s also a convenient way of topping up CBD throughout the day.
CBD infused food: As the CBD market widens, more and more CBD infused food and drink brands have burst onto the scene. From infused chilli oils to zesty lemonades, it’s getting easier by the day to integrate CBD into your everyday life. One of the benefits of introducing CBD into your diet is that consuming CBD can help aid digestion and inflammation issues. If you struggle to maintain a supplement routine, naturally introducing CBD into your daily diet may be the best option for you.
