How Much CBD +CBDa Should I Take: Figuring Out CBD Dosing
Posted on March 23rd, 2023
Are you wondering, how much CBD should I take? And did you know that, at Tanasi, all of our products contain a patent-pending, 1:1 formulation of CBD + CBDa? Or are you not even sure what CBD and CBDa really are?
Well, CBD is a very popular supplement ingredient for a variety of reasons. Derived from hemp, it’s a plant-based compound that is federally legal, so long as the supplements contain less than 0.3% THC concentrations by dry weight. CBDa is also a plant-based compound, but it’s actually the acidic precursor to CBD. In fact, CBDa converts to CBD with natural or artificial exposure to heat or light. (We call that decarboxylation.)
Lots of people enjoy supplementing CBD as part of a healthy lifestyle. And our research reveals that combining CBD and CBDa in one supplement delivers 2X the results of CBD alone. But, even with the right blend of hemp extracts, you also need to know how much of the supplement is right for you to try. Hopefully, by the end of this article, you will not only know why you may want to consider a supplement containing CBD + CBDa, but also how much you should take each time you try one of our products.
Why CBD + CBDa?
If you are wondering why you may want to consider taking a supplement with CBD + CBDa instead of a pure cannabidiol supplement, you aren’t alone. With so many products available in the unregulated CBD market, it’s hard to know why you should choose one supplement over the other.
Now, since CBD research is in its early stages, we truly can’t tell you what this supplement will do for you. But what we CAN tell you is that we’ve spent millions of dollars and many years researching hemp extracts. And we’ve found that, when you combine CBD and CBDa together, the results are at least two times more effective than taking CBD on its own. In fact, we’re so excited about this research that it forms the basis of our pending patent. (You can review the full application here.)
Having covered the available science on this topic, we’ll just offer you this information. While we can’t say exactly how CBD and CBDa will make YOU feel, we can tell you how others describe their experience. And we think our customer Joseph B. does a great job describing the Tanasi difference when he says, “I’ve been taking CBD oil for some time now and I find your product superior to the others.”
In addition to making us blush, we hope reading this review helps you answer the question: why CBD + CBDa. So now, it’s time to talk about dosing. Knowing how much of a supplement to take is just as important as knowing why you are taking it. After all, dosing isn’t so simple. And everyone is different. Here are some of the best ways to figure out how much CBD and CBDa you should be taking.
How Much CBD + CBDa Should I Take? – Figuring Out The Optimal Dosing
Here are some factors you must consider before answering, how much CBD should I take?
1. How Much Do You Weigh?
The first thing you need to factor into this calculation is your body weight. Everyone’s body is different. Your body weight will dictate how much dosage is effective for you. If someone only weighs 100 pounds, their optimal dosage is going to be very different from someone that weighs 300 pounds. Thus, you need to figure out how much you weigh and go from there.
2. What Are You Taking CBD For?
Another factor that you need to consider when you are trying to figure out how much to take is what you’re taking it for. The condition you are taking it for is just as important for optimal dosing. Thus, you need to figure out what you are taking it for and your desired level of experienced effects.
3. Trial and Error
Unfortunately, optimal dosing is not an exact science in the world of hemp extracts. You aren’t going to be able to figure out how much you should be taking right off the bat. You need to go through a period of trial and error when you are first starting. This is the only way you will find the sweet spot that you should stick with. Trial and error is a good way to find the right amount to take. However, you need to be careful with this method. It’s better to start with a lower dose and gradually increase your intake until you achieve your desired effects. Furthermore, you should choose your starting point based on our recommended dosage guideline, only increasing your intake if you feel like it’s important. It’s better to take too little than too much, since you may experience mild side effects at higher doses.
You also need to factor in the concentration of the CBD + CBDa product you are taking. The delivery method is important too, but you want to focus more on concentration. Some of our products, like the ones in the Tanasi GOLD line, are extremely concentrated. As such, you won’t need to take as many doses as you would with a product containing lower concentrations.
Also, the delivery method, or how you get the CBD + CBDa delivered to your body, impacts dosing. Some products deliver quicker effects thanks to greater bioavailability. Some of the faster delivery methods will be tincture extracts. The tinctures sold by Tanasi have excellent bioavailability and have MCT oil as a carrier oil for improved delivery.
In conclusion, there is a lot to consider when you are trying to figure out if you should take CBD + CBDa and how much you should be taking. Knowing both of these things will get you the best results from your supplement. There are plenty of factors that can influence your optimal dosage of CBD and CBDa. Thus, you want to calculate all of them when figuring out how much to take. You can follow the brand’s recommended dosage and figure things out from there.
A brand like Tanasi is one you can trust because we’ve invested in research for all of our products. You can count on them to be high-quality and to provide safe and accurate dosage recommendations. Still, you should always discuss adding any new supplement with a licensed healthcare provider who can tell you whether or not you can safely add it to your regimen. While CBD and CBDa don’t have many noticeable or severe side effects, it’s best to discuss any supplement with your doctor to ensure it’s not going to negatively interfere with any medication you are currently taking.
