CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a natural compound found in hemp and cannabis plants. It’s one of more than 100+ cannabinoids that naturally occur in hemp, and it’s also one of the most popular. CBD interacts with the ECS (endocannabinoid system), a network of receptors and molecules that supports healthy inflammation, stress response, and homeostasis, in addition to vital functions such as mood, pain, sleep, and more. Clinical and pre-clinical research shows that CBD helps support the balance and harmony of the ECS, resulting in various health benefits.

The CBD dosage calculator is a simple tool that helps you estimate how much CBD you should take based on your weight, the strength of your CBD product, and the desired strength of the effects. You can choose between mild, moderate, and heavy strength, depending on your personal preference and the condition you want to address. The calculator will then show you the recommended daily dosage of CBD in milligrams (mg), milliliters, and number of drops.

There is no definitive answer to how often you should take CBD, as it may vary depending on your individual needs and goals. However, a general rule of thumb is to start with two doses per day, preferably in the morning and evening, and observe how you feel. If you are satisfied with the results, you can stick to that schedule. If you want to increase the effects, you can try increasing the amount of CBD per dose. However, you should always start low and go slow, and consult your doctor or health care practitioner before making any changes to your CBD regimen.

CBD is generally considered to be safe and well-tolerated by most people, with clinical trials safely using up to 2,000mg per dose. However, it may cause some mild side effects in some cases, including dry mouth, drowsiness, fatigue, diarrhea, changes in appetite, or interactions with other medications. If you experience any of these side effects, you may want to lower your CBD dosage or stop using it temporarily. If you have any serious or persistent adverse reactions, you should seek medical attention immediately.

CBD is generally considered to be safe and non-toxic, even at high doses. However, taking too much CBD may cause some unwanted side effects, such as drowsiness, nausea, diarrhea, or reduced blood pressure. Therefore, it is advisable to start with a low dose to see how your body responds to it before taking a full dose. Once you start your full dosage regimen, assess how you feel at the end of each week and adjust your dose until you find your optimal level. You should also consult your doctor before using CBD, especially if you have any medical conditions or take any medications.

The onset and duration of CBD effects depend on several factors, such as the method of consumption, the quality and potency of the product, and your individual metabolism.

Generally speaking, CBD oil drops, tinctures, and sprays are the fastest-acting methods, as they are absorbed sublingually (under the tongue) and reach the bloodstream within 15-30 minutes.

CBD capsules, gummies, and other edibles take longer to work, as they have to pass through the digestive system and the liver before reaching the bloodstream. This can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours.

CBD topicals, such as creams, balms, and salves, are applied directly to the skin and may take up to an hour to produce localized effects.

CBD inhalation, such as vaping or smoking, is the quickest way to feel the effects of CBD, as it bypasses the digestive system and the liver and reaches the lungs and the bloodstream within minutes. However, this method also has the shortest duration of effects, lasting for about 2-4 hours.

Full-spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all the naturally occurring compounds in the cannabis plant, including CBD, THC, terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids. Full spectrum CBD may offer a greater range of benefits than isolate CBD, as the different compounds may work together to produce an “entourage effect” that enhances their effects.

Isolate CBD is a pure form of CBD that has no other cannabis plant compounds. Isolate CBD may be preferred by people who want to avoid any traces of THC, or who are sensitive to other cannabinoids or terpenes. However, isolate CBD may not offer the same benefits as full spectrum CBD, as it may lack the synergistic effects of the other compounds.

The main difference between the two is that their effects depend on their dose. CBD isolate is only beneficial within certain dosage ranges, while full-spectrum CBD's effects increase as the dose increases.
