What’s the Right CBDa and CBD Oil Dosage for Me?
Posted on April 6th, 2023
CBDa and CBD are two of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, these compounds don’t make you intoxicated if you consume them by following the right dosage and by using products, like Tanasi’s, that are sourced from legal hemp plants. (Containing less than 0.3% THC by dry weight.)
Today, we’re learning more about these compounds. We’ve spent years researching CBD and CBDa, and we’ve invested millions of dollars into learning how they work. And here’s what we’ve discovered: products containing CBD + CBDa together (using our patent-pending, 1:1 formulation) deliver 2X the effects of products containing CBD alone. So, before we enter any discussions of CBD dosing, remember that we’ve learned the best CBD oil dosing for you is one that also contains our research-backed formulation that also includes CBDa!
Best CBDa + CBD oil dosage for You
Unlike FDA approved-substances, there is not one recommended daily dosage for supplements containing CBD and CBDa. Plus, there’s not a lot of research to guide us in this area. Then, when you look at dosages mentioned in the research studies that are available, they aren’t the same as what most people will want to take in real life settings.
So, where does that leave you on your quest to find the ideal CBD oil dosage? It really depends on a lot of factors, such as the reason you’re hoping to add this supplement to your routine, your unique body chemistry and how your body responds differently to various doses. What works for your colleague may not work for you. Therefore, it’s always wise to consult with a licensed healthcare provider regarding the right dosage. And to be prepared to experiment a little before arriving at that just right zone.
How can you guide those experimentations? Here are some steps you can take to discover your ideal CBDa + CBD oil dosing guide:
• Assess your body’s sensitivity to CBD oil
How your body reacts to the first dose of CBD oil will guide the rest of your experimentation process. Are you able to tolerate the dose or do you feel nauseous, or dizzy? If you feel unwell, you may want to reduce your dose size to avoid these mild side effects. On the other hand, if your body doesn’t react much after the first dose, you may up the dosage by a small percentage. Then, stay at that dosing level for at least a week; a month may be more instructive. Sometimes, it takes time for your body to get acquainted to CBDa + CBD oil ingredients. Once you get habituated with the oil, you can truly understand how your body is reacting, and make any necessary adjustments from there.
• Individual factors
In addition to assessing your body’s sensitivity to CBD oil, you should also consider other individual factors, such as your body weight, overall health, sex, and age. Additionally, you need to check the concentration of CBDa + CBD in the delivery method you’re choosing, whether that’s a tincture, softgel or topical product.
As general guidelines, people with weights in the higher end often require a slightly higher dose than those with lower body weights. The average dosage for men to experience effects is higher than that of women. Finally, younger adults may require a higher dose than senior citizens.
• Check your responses
After taking your first dosage, whip out a journal or diary. Wait between 20 minutes to an hour after dosing, depending on the delivery method you’ve chosen. (Effects from our CBDa+CBD tincture will be noticeable sooner than ones from our small-batch, artisanal CBD+CBDa gummies, now available in a delightful yuzu flavor, without any artificial corn syrup for sweetness!) Write down what you’re feeling, and do so after each dose increase. This will help you determine your ideal CBD oil dosing.
Remember, the effects of CBDa + CBD products can be subtle. Some of our customers aren’t immediately able to identify how they feel after taking a dose. Does that sound familiar? Then try this method: consider taking a few days off of your daily CBD dose and write how you feel without your supplement. Then, notice what feels different after resuming your dose.
• Use a dosage calculator
One of the challenges of determining a fixed CBDa + CBD oil dosage is that different products have different formulations, making it difficult to assess their efficacy. However, you can use a dosage calculator to find out what dose is appropriate for your anxiety symptoms. Are these dosage calculators accurate? Well, their result may vary from what your guess-and-test method determines, but they aren’t bad if you try them a few times. Especially when you’re just starting your CBDa+CBD journey.
If you don’t have a clear idea of where to begin, it’s wise to start with 10 to 20 mg CBDa and CBD per day. Try the dose for at least a week to check whether you are experiencing the results you were hoping to achieve. Moreover, starting with a low dose allows your body to get acquainted with the ingredients in your new supplement. If you don’t experience any difference in your body, you can increase the dose by 5 mg at the end of the week.
Continue consuming 15 to 25 mg for another week. Your body should start responding from the second week if you don’t give a gap in between. You can slowly increase the dose if you think that the effects are not enough for your desired experience.
CBD oil side effects
Consuming full-spectrum CBDa + CBD usually doesn’t have any side effects, provided you follow the dosage instructions. Some people try to jump the gum by taking much more than their recommended lowest dose. If you follow that same path, you may experience side effects like stomach upset, dizziness, nausea, diarrhea, appetite changes, and loss of body weight.
Our CBDa and CBD supplements can be an effective addition to your wellness routine, so long as you take the time to find your ideal dose. Here at Tanasi, we offer a wide variety of full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBDa+CBD products, each containing different concentrations, and none containing more than 0.3% THC. We encourage you to experiment with your delivery method and daily dosage until you find that perfect product for you.
