What CBD Dose do I use?

I get more and more messages asking this simple question; What CBD Dose do I use?

I get more and more messages asking this simple question; however there is not necessarily a simple answer.

It really depends on what you use if for and each of you are unique, so there is not a specific dosage for people…

In our experience people tend to take between 15 and 45mg per day of cbd. Our products display the amount of cbd in each size. The amount in mg of cbd as oppose to the percentage or volume is what is important.

For example: Our 20ml starter size contains approximately 300 mg of cbd. A 1ml syringe would therefore contain approximately 15 mg of cbd..

We would normally advise to start at a dose of 15g  or 1 ml and take it from there.

We are always learning and receiving feedback direct from users themselves. Our current advice is to initially spread the dose over the course of 24 hours. Preferably 3 times a day. Everybody’s metabolism and body chemistry is slightly different. What we find important is to ‘fill’ up the cannabinoid receptors that we naturally have in our bodies and then the cbd seems to act more efficiently, through your bodies own fats etc.

In our opinion; If a patient feels they need to be above that high end dose, 45mg plus, then it’s likely that the cbd is not working as well as might be hoped.

With our ‘patients’ we try a type of oil for a week or two so they don’t spend a fortune and we see how they react to it; how they go about their day, whether it ‘suits’ them. If we feel it is working well we might increase dose a little but always different for each person.

If this batch doesn’t work at these levels then it prob wont work at over dosing either so we might try a different variety of oil. Our THC extracts are far more powerful but only available to association members. There is no one size fits all dose. It’s about you and your own body. In fact over the last year or two we have literally converted about 75% of our community that were using THC for pain over to CBD.

For longer term use.. where feasible we encourage people to grow their own medicines, we don’t think ‘we will supply them for years’, although from a retail perspective my can actually do that.

You can see our organic cbd products on the main community website.

P.S. Update April 2017

We used to supply syringes or spoons but generally people were using their own ‘tools’ in the main. As we are always trying to save on waste and packaging etc then it made sense to stop providing them. The small glass bottles are dropper bottles but will accept a 1ml syringe. We will always listen to feedback re packaging..

Certified Organic CBD Oils

Although many of our members consume full plant medicines there are a growing number that are benefiting from hemp CBD oils to either alleviate problems or as part of a general well being health supplement.

Having a medical focus meant that I wasn’t happy recommending hemp CBD oils for a while as I wasn’t sure of their background, their production methods, whether the testing was up to par etc and also the active ingredients cannot be compared to full spectrum ‘illegal’ medicines. My analogy was always “using hemp cbd alone for medicine is like eating orange peel and discarding the orange”A lab might well show benefits from testing that orange peel but unless they test and compare the orange too how can we know its true value? Of course, it hasn’t been possible to do real research on this particular orange.

Many people I speak to or have spoken to in recent years have bought cbd oils from various sources with varying degrees of success, either from unregulated sources or from importing from places like India or Canada and it was always my preference to find out who’s products were made how, why and when before we would recommend any to our own community and over the last few years I’ve been fortunate to view several hemp farms and see the production from start to finish here in Spain. There is one network that I am happy to associate and collaborate with at this point because they tick a lot of our desired boxes.

The CBD  oils are produced organically from seed to product right here in Spain by a non profit association which being a bit of a community guided guy is a great point. They are also 100% certified and legal and are as far as we are aware the only producer to have a government certificate of ‘Sanitario’ meaning the methods and all ingredients (i.e the vegetable oils) are scrutinised and approved as clean for consumption. It’s the highest recognised standard you can get.

I do stress again that these extracts are from hemp and produced on a large scale. More a general health supplement than a specific cannabis medicine we might create for a member of our association and are infused into vegetable oil as oppose to a coconut oil that we would use in our own creations.. There is continued debate on the pros and cons of vegetable oils on the whole and that is something of an individual choice.
