Everything You Need to Know About CBD Microdosing
Microdosing CBD is becoming a preferred consumption technique when ingesting CBD. In lieu of consuming a full day’s serving of CBD in a single dosage, microdosing breaks down that daily intake across several doses during the day. This allows your body to maintain steady levels of CBD throughout the day, which research is showing to be of greater health benefit.
Although microdosing CBD Oil takes more effort with the frequent dosages, the benefits far outweigh this inconvenience. With taking a full day’s serving in a single CBD dosage, the effects may wear off by the end of the day, whereas the CBD levels are stabilized throughout the day with microdosing.
How to Microdose CBD Oil?
CBD Oil Tinctures are very effective for microdosing because consumers are easily able to measure the CBD serving in each dosage with the greatest accuracy. Most CBD Oil is bottled in a 30mL tincture with a 1mL dropper. The dropper on all 30mL bottles holds .5mL of oil. Therefore, the dropper will be half full, indicating a full dropper (or serving).
If you are taking a 500mg CBD Oil Tincture, there are approximately 17mg of CBD in a single dosage. Instead, of consuming a full day’s serving of CBD in a single 17mg dosage, that serving would be dispersed across multiple dosages throughout the day. You may decide to break up the 17mg of CBD into 4 separate dosages in the morning, during lunch, in the afternoon and with dinner.
While we always recommend consulting with a physician before starting a daily CBD dosage schedule, through anecdotal evidence, the 4-daily dosing guide has shown positive affirmations for microdosing CBD throughout the day. The small amounts of CBD dosing throughout periods of the day act similarly to a pain management schedule, where the concept of pain management is to take a proper dosage before feeling pain. While we recognize that not all CBD users are suffering from pain, a similar function exists with CBD and other chronic symptoms like stress or anxiety.
Benefits of Microdosing
Cannabinoids are naturally produced in the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for maintaining and regulating the body’s homeostasis. When you consume or topically apply CBD, the cannabinoids stimulate the body’s endocannabinoid system by binding to specialized receptors that are found (but not limited to) your hippocampus (memory, learning), cerebral cortex (decision-making, emotional behavior), cerebellum (motor control, coordination), putamen (movement, learning), hypothalamus (appetite, body temperature) and amygdala (emotions). This bind triggers an event in the cell and surrounding cells to aid in balancing sleep, mood, pain and inflammation for optimal function.
Everytime you consume CBD, your endocannabinoid system is stimulated so when microdosing CBD, you are stimulating the system more frequently and are maintaining more stable CBD levels in your system.
This is very attractive to those who rely on a consistent support system as the CBD Oil keeps a greater balance within your body and its functions.
You may still wonder whether microdosing with CBD is right for you. While all consumers can benefit from microdosing CBD Oil, there are certain ailments which seem to experience greater relief from microdosing.
Microdosing for anxiety
From generalized social anxiety disorder to post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety can infiltrate our lives and transform seemingly banal activities into larger-than-life challenges.
People who experience constant anxiety have benefited greatly by maintaining steady levels of CBD in their bodies to help them better cope throughout the day.
microdosing cbd oil for athletes
Peak athletic performance requires a daily practice and a challenging workout regimen. Athletes are no strangers to pushing their bodies to the limit. However, without a healthy balance being maintained in their endocannabinoid system, they may require longer periods of recovery after their training, which could impact their long-term results, progress and success.
Microdosing CBD Oil helps athletes—from marathon runners to yogis and cross fit trainers to professional competitors—maintain balance within their bodies to assist in the post-workout recovery, reduce inflammation during and after exercising and reduce the aches and pains felt one to two days after training.
Microdosing CBD for pain
If you experience occasional pain, you may find relief with a single CBD dosage. However, those who suffer from chronic pain may benefit greater from microdosing CBD to manage their symptoms more effectively with a constant level of pain relief.
Whether you choose to consume your CBD Oil in a single dosage or microdose, it’s important to find that optimal dosage for your daily routine, and to consider the ailments and symptoms you are seeking to alleviate. Each symptom requires a different dosage of CBD Oil to be most effective so we encourage you to check out our CBD dosing chart.
