How Many CBD Gummies Do I Need?
Sometimes, dosing can be a challenge. Since there’s no standard serving size, finding the right dose can take some trial and error. Many people start with a small amount – like 5 or 10mg – and gradually increase every 2-3 days, until they find their effective dose.
To complicate things further, due to differences in bioavailability, dosage needs will change based on the type of product you’re using. Vaping has the highest bioavailability, followed by sublingual tinctures, and then edibles. This means your body absorbs more CBD via vaping than edibles, but the trade-off is that the effects of edibles will last much longer. If you’ve had luck with tinctures or vaping and want to try something new, you’ll likely need a higher dose with edibles to get the same effect, due to the lower bioavailability. Since the edible gummy bears go through the digestion process, the effects can be very specific to you and your body type.
Confused? Don’t worry. Our tasty gummies come in three different dosage options: 10mg, 15mg, and 25mg gummies. If you’re new to cannabidiol, you can use the below guidelines to figure out where to start. Keep in mind that the right dosage can vary based on symptom severity, metabolism, weight, and other factors.
10mg: Perfect for relaxation and stress relief, mild anxiety, and mild pain.
15mg: Great for moderate anxiety or chronic pain, such as lower back pain and headaches.
25mg: Ideal for sleep problems, severe anxiety or chronic pain, and inflammation from conditions like fibromyalgia and arthritis.
You can take gummies once per day, or multiple times per day; there is no maximum dose, but a higher dose won’t necessarily be more effective.
Remember to always consult with your doctor before taking any new dietary supplements, including CBD. Cannabidiol can affect how your body metabolizes other medications. Some medical professionals don’t know much about ir and may not be able to assist you; if this applies to you, consider speaking with a cannabis doctor instead.
How to Find High-quality Gummies Online
There’s plenty of sellers out there, but not all are created equal. Some manufacturers opt to cut corners by using cheaper – and sometimes harmful – ingredients to create their products. Others have been caught selling mislabeled products that don’t really contain the advertised amount of CBD. So what can you do to protect yourself? Here’s a few tips on how to ensure you’re buying from a trustworthy seller.
- Look for 3rd party testing results. Any legitimate manufacturer will have their products tested by a 3rd party lab to ensure the quality of their products. Lab reports will show a breakdown of the product ingredients, including potency. Most reputable CBD sellers share their 3rd party lab results online, or by request via email.
- Make sure it’s clean-farmed. Hemp is a powerful soil cleanser, which means it soaks up all kinds of toxins if it’s not grown in clean, organic conditions. If a manufacturer isn’t open about where they get their hemp and how it’s grown, steer clear – or else you might end up with heavy metals and pesticides in your CBD.
- Find out the manufacturing details. There are many different ways to extract cannabidiol from hemp. Some manufacturers may opt cut corners and use harsh solvents like butane, which can leave harmful chemicals in the end product. Quality manufacturers will use the more expensive CO2 extraction method, since it results in a cleaner and safer product.
Finding the best-quality products all comes down to transparency. Look for products that are clearly labeled and state how much cannabidiol is in each gummy, and watch out for too much artificial flavors or dyes, and other unnecessary ingredients. Even though these gummies look like candy, they are not for children under 18 years old!
