Just like any highly beneficial supplement, while there are major advantages to adding CBD UK products to your diet, with CBD, it is possible to have too much of a good thing. Consuming the right amount comes down to finding out what is right for your body, and the amount that really works for your endocannabinoid system.
Discovering an Effective Dosage
There are a vast range of CBD oil and CBD liquid UK products available on the market that have the different dosages clearly labelled. On most CBD UK products, you will be able to see that the dosage amount is labelled in mg, this is the same as what you would find on a packet of painkillers, for example.
Unlike painkillers, where one recommended dose is normally about 500mg, if you’re just starting out with CBD, then we recommend users start low with a dose of around 12.50mg, taken in two doses of 6.25mg. This is either 6 drops of our 250mg oil twice per day or approximately one of our low-dose 10mg CBD chocolates taken in halves.
Once you get more familiar with CBD, then you can increase the dose slowly; often done every 5-7 days until such a point where you feel that you are getting the full benefits of the product. Your body only needs a very small amount of the CBD found in CBD UK products to properly respond.
Positive Trend vs Negative Trend
To help you get a better understanding of how to hit that sweet spot where the benefits are optimum, you can take a look at the bell-chart below. This aptly demonstrates just how increasing your dose of CBD can have a benefit to your body, until such a point when too much puts you on the negative trend. Being on the negative trend can destroy many of the benefits that being on the positive trend can deliver to your body.
Over time, too high of a dose could begin to wear out your receptors and mean that you’ll get less of the benefits of CBD UK products, even with a higher dose. This makes it incredibly important to start with a low dose and work your way up to the right dose for your body – hitting the sweet spot on your body’s bell-curve.
