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..

The MACA is freedom!

This is a translated post from CERCA relating to a spate of closures in recent weeks. If you are in the Barcelona area in particular you should attend the meeting described at the end of the article, no matter what your nationality. These associations are made up of normal people like you and I and we all need the support.

Last week, Thursday, February 11, the Associative Movement of cannabis Autoconsumo Association (MACA) in Barcelona closed its doors. It has done so as a precautionary measure at the request of the Court of Instruction No. 20 of Barcelona, ​​which has declared the activities of the association as unlawful when even the recent setbacks experienced with the judgments of the Supreme Court doubted the right of association.

In the Spanish State , Catalonia and the Basque Country as pioneers, people who use cannabis have managed to collectively build a system for self-supply of cannabis without having to resort to the illicit market , knowing what we consume, organizing programs to reduce risk, management pleasures, we crowded through non-profit organization of seniors, and consumers prior to we network with our environment, we are part of other social movements and jointly build a change to this nonsense that criminalizes us. We are people and we have rights. Each association is forced to close its doors are hundreds of people who are forced to return to the illicit market. And criminals are we? It is time for bold steps locally for global responsibility before us.

Maca was one of the first Cannabis Associations established in Catalonia and pioneered to open a therapeutic support led by Dr. Joan Parés only last year treated more than 100 people with problems like glaucoma, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain … a cannabis association should not be room for all these people that it is high time that they can normalize their care, monitoring and medication, but to date the associations have also led shelters information and support in these cases as necessary.

Maca is a committed partnership formed by Club members share responsibility for a project of political struggle in defense of the rights of people who use cannabis . The MACA is part of the CatFAC and FAC, REMA is part of the CAB, the CJB, ward council, and Addictions Working Group of the City of Barcelona. It is an association that is dedicated to improving the conditions of people living in your neighborhood, who cares about the environment, and which actively participates. In short, working tirelessly for peaceful coexistence.

The MACA is made ​​up of people like you , men, women, parents, workers, students, unemployed, pensioners … by activists who want to make their voices heard to give prominence to the people who use cannabis. For a society that binds to create changes and provide alternatives to iron fist following drowning us with hypocrisy and popular systems control.

We have spent many years denouncing our legal uncertainty, the real crime is to continue back to our reality. We need a comprehensive regulation of cannabis , that the laws are appropriate to the reality and needs of people. Our fight is for a drug policies that protect public health and vulnerable groups as policies based on fear, lies and the prohibition behave just the opposite. This is our commitment and, paradoxically, is what leads us to have problems with the prosecution. There is contradictory to punish us because of the huge task that involves differentiate the black market? It seems that current laws promote and protect the illicit market and once, and become a criminal penalize those struggling to get out.

The MACA closed doors today to comply with the order and respect the coexistence of rules that gives us the rule of law. And they will not stop us. Today cannabis movement joins forces with this new impact on our rights. The MACA us all !!!

For all this, we convened a Special General Assembly, Monday, 15 February at the Social Centre Street Olzinelles Sants, 30 Barcelona, ​​19:30.

It will be an open space to all organizations, institutions, people who share with us the way in the struggle for social and political rights, Civil Rights, Human Rights.

Let us force all together , and that resonates strongly slammed to close !!!

MACA will reopen the doors !!!
