Dosage Guide For CBD

CBD Dosage Guide

The usage and therapeutic use of CBD oil are still in the infancy even cannot prescribe dosages as there is no recommended or universal dosage for everyone. It’s only been recent, that scientists and or medical professionals are starting to develop schedules for dosing for CBD and medical marijuana.

There is no recommended dose and most web pages when searching can only be intended as an informational guide or a starting point and is NEVER considered medical advice.

EVERY BODY is different!!

Body weight, metabolism, and countless other factors; even pain tolerance makes it impossible to prescribe and more often than not it is a rough estimate.  That is why we at Baja Hemp Co advise people new to CBD  to start with a certain dosage and from there a person can go increase or decrease based on how the individual feels.

From the research, I have done if you start out with the suggested dosage on the product and increase it until you find symptom relief.  CBD dosages and duration of the illness depends on exactly that and so many other factors.

The many ways to use CBD

Vape Cartridges

This is the fastest way to deliver CBD into your system (body and brain)  is through the lungs. Most vapes are sold prefilled in cartridges and come in a variety of strengths depending on your needs.

Sublingual (under the tongue) tinctures, extracts

All of these will have a suggested serving size however that is all it is a suggestion.  The rest of the directions are important to follow – like keeping the liquid under your tongue for 60 seconds. This gives it time to absorb into the blood vessels and bypassing the metabolism.

Edibles

Including capsules, food and or gummy treats may take a while to work as it needs to go through the digestive system and usually provide a longer effect.   After ingestion can take up to 60 min to take effect and lasts 2-6 hours.

Transdermal Patch

A slow and steady release of CBD into the bloodstream, and may take hours to feel the effect but once it’s in you the relief is long lasting up to 96 hours in some cases depending on the brand.

Topically

Bypasses the liver metabolism and varies widely to factors of fatty tissue, skin temperature and varies with amount used. Great for inflamed joints and muscles and is long lasting.

CBD & Anxiety

Recent studies have confirmed that CBD can improve anxiety and stress in most individuals.  It has been studied in relation to:

  • Panic disorder
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Social phobia
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Mild to moderate depression

 

5-HT1A agonist: 5-HT1A is a subtype of the serotonin receptor, which is important because anxiety and depression can sometimes be treated with medications that target the serotonin system. This is why drug companies developed selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Prozac and Zoloft. SSRIs work by blocking reabsorption of serotonin in the brain, which increases the availability of serotonin in the synaptic space. This helps brain cells transmit more serotonin signals, which can reduce anxiety and boost mood in certain cases (although the full biological basis for this is more complicated and not fully understood).

Similar to SSRIs, CBD may boost signaling through serotonin receptors. In an animal study, Spanish researchers found that CBD enhances 5-HT1A transmission and may affect serotonin faster than SSRIs. Researchers noted:

“The fast onset of antidepressant action of CBD and the simultaneous anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effect would solve some of the main limitations of current antidepressant therapies.”

Studies on Alzheimer’s & CBD

Alzheimer’ s  disease is very frightening and alarming, however,  new research is hopeful. And trials have begun for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease involving CBD and the body’s receptors.

Scientists believe that there is increasing evidence that the endocannabinoid system may be regulating the neurodegenerative processes.

Dementia and Alzheimer’s are age-related dementia associated with impairments in learning and memory accompanied by neuroinflammation, oxidative stress, and neurodegeneration. 

Over the past few years, there has been a growing interest in the therapeutic potential of medications that target the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

Every day we are finding out more about the disease and how to prevent it, and possibly change the outcome. More research is becoming available with the research of CBD and this insidious disease.

CBD Dosing Guide

 

The first question that I often get asked is ” Can I take too much CBD oil”, NO you cannot overdose on CBD. according to CannLabs (the nations top testing lab),  there is no lethal dose. The reason for this is that the cannabinoid receptors are not located in the brain stem areas like opioid receptors controlling respiration  – lethal doses of cannabis and cannabinoids do not occur.  Once consumed, CBD acts with our bodies own endocannabinoid system to promote homeostasis. (homeostat or regulator) It basically regulates the part that is not working well or ill.

The trick is to consistently take the recommended dosage and it begins to balance the nervous system, help with the inflammatory response. For a specific ailment, we advise playing with the dosage to find the perfect dosage for you.  It is best to basically saturate yourself with CBD which takes 1 week to 2 weeks to start taking effect in the body and it provides relief for your symptoms.  With any holistic healing, it sometimes is not a quick fix. I believe that we have been duped by the Pharma companies with the one pill fixes all attitude and if something does not work instantly we move onto the next product.
