“How much CBD is the right amount? It’s a question we get a lot and one that we appreciate. We started The Hemp Division because we wanted to provide high-quality, all-natural CBD products that you could trust and that would improve your quality of life. Knowing how much CBD is the right amount is an important part of that outcome.
Unfortunately, there is no one right answer. Discovering your best self with CBD is a unique journey for us all. A dose that works for you may not be the best one for your partner, friend, or co-worker, because how our bodies react to CBD can be quite different. Here’s a quick overview of why that is:
CBD stands for “cannabidiol,” one of the cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. Cannabinoids are active compounds that interact with our body’s endocannabinoid receptors to produce effects that mimic our body’s own neurotransmitters. The endocannabinoid system is a complex cell-signaling system that plays a role in regulating a wide range of functions and processes, including sleep, mood, appetite, memory, reproduction, and fertility.
In addition to interacting with our individual endocannabinoid receptors, how CBD affects us also has to do with our weight and unique body chemistry. So while your friend’s perfect level of CBD may be 25 MG, it may not be yours.
So how do you find your CBD sweet spot? We suggest trying this approach.
If you’re just getting started, you may want to experiment with lower CBD levels found in our bottled beverages and hot teas—and then tune in to how your body responds. Some products to try include:
Ready for More?
After trying products with lower levels of CBD, move the dial up a bit to see if more CBD is what you desire or if you need to dial it back down. Monitor how your body reacts to products like these with increased amounts of CBD:
You Can Always DIY
Instead of ordering directly off the menu, you can build your own CBD taco, if you will, by incorporating our Rest tinctures, which come in 1200 MG and 3000 MG. Add as much or as little as you’d like to either a CBD beverage to boost its levels or a non-CBD beverage to give it a little extra oomph. The tinctures have the added benefit of being flexible with your CBD levels depending on your desired outcomes. They’re a great way to tailor your CBD intake to your specific desires.
Because It’s All About You
Whether for mood, relaxation, pain relief, better sleep, or other benefits, you determine your personal goals and monitor your body’s response to build your ideal routine for the morning, midday, evening, and night. No matter your individual goals, you can create a stronger connection with your body. Experiment and discover what works best. There is no one-size-fits-all dose… there’s just whatever works for you. Enjoy your journey of discovery!
