Have you ever noticed how some people seem to get excellent results from CBD while others don't feel the benefits? While CBD isn't a cure-all, there are several things you can do to improve your CBD experience and ensure you're getting the most out of this popular supplement. Here are some simple tips to try out:
Increase CBD Drops Permeability:
As CBD drops are absorbed through the sublingual gland under your tongue, increasing blood flow to your mouth helps with absorption. Consider taking your drops directly after cleaning your teeth or consuming something fatty, such as mayonnaise, to increase the absorption rate up to five times. Hold the oil under your tongue for at least two minutes to give the CBD enough time to work its way in.
Match Your CBD Products with Exercise:
CBD supports the production of endocannabinoids, which are body-balancing neurotransmitters. Exercise, yoga, and meditation have all been shown to trigger endocannabinoid synthesis and release, making them a great pairing with CBD. One study found that just 30 minutes on a treadmill significantly increased anandamide (our “bliss molecule”) in the bloodstream. In contrast, another study showed that meditation significantly increased anandamide, 2-AG, and 1-AG (two other endocannabinoids).
Determine Your Ideal CBD Oil Dosage:
Finding the right CBD oil dosage for you depends on your individual needs. Start with a low dose, such as 2-3 drops 2-3 times daily, and gradually increase over time. This technique is called “micro-dosing” and is particularly effective with CBD oral drops and vapes, as they only remain active in the body for around 2-3 hours. Up your dose by a drop or two each period until you reach a level that suits your needs. Keep a journal so you can track how you feel at different doses. The Food Standards Agency has set a recommended maximum of 70mg daily for non-prescription CBD products.
