Taking CBD & CBG
One thing the scientific community agree on is regarding the best way to ingest CBD and CBG and that is sublingually, also known as tinctures. This is also the best way to ensure managing dosage accurately. To take CBD/CBG via tincture you will use a dropper, and place the specific amount for your needs under your tongue, then hold it there for a minimum of 30 seconds or as long as you can without swallowing, up to several minutes. Additionally effective methods for ingesting your dose of CBD/CBG include balms and salves, gummies, and smokeables. They remain effective as long as they are taken correctly. For instance, when taking gummies you will want to ensure you thoroughly chew and swallow each chew or risk reducing the absorption of the CBD/CBG contained inside. In the instance of balms or salves you will want to ensure to rub it in completely and allow it to fully absorb or risk rubbing it off before it has a chance to be effective.
CBD/CBG Dosage For Beginners
The appropriate dosage of CBD/CBG that may be effective varies from individual to individual. Since CBD/CBG works cumulatively in your system it is recommended to take a larger dose than you may need when you begin using the compounds. For many people this is between 25-50mg, allowing the individual to feel the effects quickly. If you take this dose and don’t feel any effects it would be recommended to double the dosage, adding 25mg, then continuing to add 25mg until results are seen. Taking a higher dosage allows your endocannabinoid system to be activated, allowing you to determine whether you need to increase or decrease the dosage as necessary for your system.
Most individuals repeat their dosage a minimum of twice a day. Once in the morning, and again about 45 minute before turning in for the night. Taking it more often if symptoms are persistent will allow your body to accumulate the proper amount of buildup of CBD/CBG in order to see long term results. As you experience these results, you may reduce your intake gradually until you find the perfect conditions for your symptoms.
