Starting Out & Finding your CBD ‘Sweet’ Spot

Happy Hemp Day!

How are you doing?

Today I wanted to talk about the most commonly used methods for using CBD & their bioavailability in the human body.

Hope you enjoy reading and find helpful.

As always, any questions I am always here and happy to help, book a free chat below with myself and let’s get you started on your own healthy Hemp & CBD journey.

Starting Out with CBD:

CBD works differently for everyone so you may need to experiment to find the right method and dosage for you.

If you’re new to CBD, give it some time.

You’ll want to give your body some time to adjust to taking it. Many people just starting out on their CBD journey try it for the first time and think they’re going to immediately see extraordinary results, but this isn’t always how CBD works.

Now to be sure, some people do see extraordinary results the first time (and we love hearing those stories), but remember that CBD affects each person differently. It’s best to give your CBD regimen some time before determining how long various methods of administration work for you.

Start slowly by taking a low serving size (5-10mg) and then work your way up over the course of a couple weeks until you hit that sweet spot and feel the relief you desire.

CBD works differently for everyone, which will ultimately determine how long the effects last for you personally. The method of administration also has a significant influence on how long the effects of CBD last.

Your “sweet spot” dose is the amount of CBD that gives you the desired results that you are looking for. And it’s important to understand that this “sweet spot” is different for each person.

Most people can take 2 aspirin and it will generally be effective for them.

But with CBD, everyone’s endocannabinoid system is very different.

As a result, CBD oil users need to expect to do their own experimentation to find the CBD dose that is optimal for them.

For many, less is more!

CBD Tinctures, sometimes known as drops are one of the most popular methods of delivery. CBD tinctures are taken most effectively sublingually (under the tongue), where the CBD oil is held for approximately 60 seconds then swallowed.

When it’s held under the tongue, the CBD oil is absorbed by the mucous membranes and then directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract, which allows for a quicker delivery.

It typically takes 20-30 minutes to feel the effects of a CBD tincture, and the effects are known to last between 4-6 hours.

Why Does CBD Go Under the Tongue?

Sublingual application, or application under the tongue, allows for the active ingredients of CBD oil to be directly absorbed through the mucous membrane in the mouth.

There are many capillaries, or tiny blood vessels, under the tongue which transfer directly to the bloodstream.

When absorbed under the tongue, CBD bypasses the digestive system and processing of the liver; therefore, the effects of CBD oil are not decreased by digestion.

Sublingual application allows CBD to quickly enter the bloodstream and interact with the endocannabinoid system.

Finding Your CBD 'Sweet' Spot:

Here are some specific instructions for how to micro dose with CBD to find your “sweet spot” dose. (These instructions are based on a system described by Dr. Dustin Sulak who is a medical cannabis expert.)

Before consuming, ask yourself these 3 questions and answer on a scale of 1 to 10:

– How easy is it to breathe?

– How comfortable and calm does your body feel?

– How easy is it for you to smile authentically, to feel content and grateful?

  1. Shake the bottle well and consume 2 drops of CBD oil placed under your tongue and hold for 60-90 seconds. You want the oil to absorb sublingually into your bloodstream. Don’t just swallow them.
  2. Repeat the process over the next few days, increasing the dose by small increments (1-2 drops per dose) every three days to set the body’s acclimation.

When you reach a point where you feel any difference after consuming, you’ve found your minimal effective serving size. 

This can be sleep, stress, pain, anxiety etc. That small difference means your system is responding and taking much more will not benefit.

  1. At this point, you can continue raising the dose by tiny amounts, but only every few days. At some point, there will be no further benefit from a higher dose. You’ve established your therapeutic range, and can take the minimum dose.

Continue to experiment with the timing of consumption to find what works best for you.

Keep track of how you feel every time you take for at least 30 days. This way you can record your dosages used and see what works for you personally.

Remember to give it time, it takes trial and error and can take a month, longer for some. Experiment with different methods and even brands, to find the right method and dosage for you.

There are so many products on the market these days, it can be a minefield.
