We've also got a blog post to help you determine "How much CBD should I take?".
We always recommend talking to a doctor when it comes to what you're putting in your body. Here's some things to consider when working out the right dose for you...
Concentration is simply the amount that’s in the product and is measured in milligrams.
2. BODY WEIGHT
Body weight and composition also plays a role in how much or how little is needed. Generally, the more you weigh and the higher your BMI, the more you will need.
3. SYMPTOM SEVERITY
Lastly, the more severe your symptoms, the more you’ll probably need. For instance, if you want to treat some mild aches and strains, you will need less than someone suffering from a severe, chronic pain condition.
4. BIOAVAILABILITY + PRODUCT TYPE
Whenever you ingest any therapeutic substance, your body first needs to absorb it before it can start doing its job. The efficacy at which it's absorbed into the bloodstream is called its bioavailability.
The bioavailability of a substance is very much dependent on the way you take it. For instance, the bioavailability of CBD oils that you put under your tongue is different to edibles or gel caps that get swallowed, or vapes that get inhaled because of different routes each of them have to take before they can reach the bloodstream.
To show you the differences between different CBD products, we’ve put together the table below.
|Method of Administration||Bioavailability||Onset||Duration|
|Oral||4% - 20%||30 - 90 min||± 7 hrs|
|Sublingual||10% - 20%||20 - 40 min||± 6 hrs|
|Topical||Unknown||60 - 90 min||± 6 hrs|
|Inhalation||2% - 56%||2 - 5 min||± 3 hrs|
