What dosage of CBD should I vape?

CBD liquids - an overview of the most important questions

Along with THC, CBD is one of the main active ingredients in cannabis. Unlike THC, CBD has no psychoactive effects. However, CBD is said to have a host of beneficial medicinal effects, such as calming and pain relieving properties.

Recently, more and more CDB products have found their way into specialist retailers. According to rumors, even Coca-Cola is planning to come onto the market with a first soft drink containing CBD.

CBD can be taken in a number of ways. In addition to CBD tinctures (ointments, creams) for external use and capsules as well as oils for oral consumption, there is now a wide range of CBD-containing liquids for e-cigarettes.

We have already discussed the medical potential of CBD elsewhere. Independent scientific studies attest that CBD has far-reaching therapeutic effects to alleviate numerous physical and psychological ailments.

In addition, CBD can also be used as an effective aid in smoking cessation. A question frequently asked by many interested parties is about the appropriate dosage of such products.

How is CBD dosed correctly?

First of all, there is no universal CBD dosage and some theoretical background knowledge is required in addition to practical experience to find the right dose.

A number of factors play a role in determining your personal dosage.

In addition to body weight and the individual biological metabolism, these factors also include the type of CBD intake and the (therapeutic) motivation for consuming CBD.

The Internet now offers countless dosage recommendations for a wide variety of CBD preparations.

However, so far there are no scientific studies that make binding statements about an appropriate cannabidiol dosage for standard users. It but there are guidelinesthat result for different areas of application and depending on your own body weight and the chosen form of consumption.

In case of doubt, it is therefore always important to seek specialist medical advice. Especially if CBD is to be used to relieve certain symptoms of a previously diagnosed disease, it is highly recommended that you always consult a doctor beforehand to discuss potential risks and side effects.

In these instructions, we therefore only provide initial assistance with reservation as to how you can find the right dose of CBD for you.

What's the best way to consume CBD? How is CBD best absorbed by the body?

The type of physical ingestion of CBD supplements has a direct effect on how high the so-called bioavailability is. Depending on the type of intake, a different proportion of the original CBD content of the ingested preparation actually reaches the bloodstream and is effectively processed by it.

Compared to oral ingestion and external use, vaping has the comparatively highest bioavailability. In the future, this fact will also have to be recognized by pharmaceutical companies, which until now have mostly only sold CBD products as edible tablets and oils or tinctures for external absorption.

You therefore need less CBD for the same effect if you steam the CBD and do not swallow it as a dietary supplement. While edible CBD capsules have a bioavailability of 5-15%, CBD tinctures already achieve an availability of 20-30%. If, on the other hand, CBD oils are vaporized, 40-50% of the active ingredient can be absorbed by the body and released into the bloodstream.

So if, for example, 100 mg of CBD is vaped, your body can absorb around 40-50 mg of it, while edible CBD supplements of the same concentration only allow 5 to 15 mg to be absorbed by the body.

But not only the effectiveness increases, the time until physical absorption is significantly shorter when vaping than when eating. Because when vaping CBD preparations with the e-cigarette, the active ingredient is absorbed directly into the bloodstream via the lungs and not only processed through the digestive tract and liver. There the CBD then crosses the blood-brain barrier and acts on numerous receptors in the body's own endocannabinoid system.

By evaporating, CBD works much faster in the organism. So there is the possibility of a more precise, situation-adapted regulation.

The e-cigarette is therefore currently the best known form of consumption for effectively absorbing CBD and dosing it at precisely the right time. The form of consumption and its specific bioavailability must therefore be taken into account when calculating the individual personal dose.

CBD is also an excellent means of smoking cessation because it docks with the same receptors and thus dampens the craving for nicotine.

This is how you calculate your optimal CBD dosage

In general, it is advisable to start with a lower dosage and then gradually feel your way up as needed.

A medically questionable overdose is unlikely, but undesirable side effects such as slight drowsiness can be avoided.

On the other hand, if the dosage is too low at the beginning, the desired effect will not be achieved and it is important to slowly “steam up”.

In order to correctly calculate the concentration of the CBD-containing e-liquid, it is important to pay attention to whether the value indicated on the bottle indicates the total amount of CBD per bottle or the amount per ml.

If you have no previous experience with CBD, it is therefore advisable to start with low mg / ml dosages. A few short puffs should be enough to get you started. The active ingredient reaches your bloodstream after about 10-15 minutes. If the desired effect does not occur after this time, it is advisable to "re-steam" a little.

But don't expect too much, because CBD is not a psychoactive ingredient that will get you "high". The noticeable effects are therefore mostly rather subtle. So if you consume CBD with a certain therapeutic motivation to alleviate certain psychological or physical ailments, it is advisable to look for changes in these symptoms instead of a "psychological effect" attributable to the CBD.

What are the effects of CBD?

The most prominent effects of CBD are relaxation, pain relief, anxiety relief, and a general mood improvement. In higher doses, CBD causes drowsiness and / or drowsiness.

Does CBD have side effects?

Those who follow the tips mentioned and slowly and carefully increase the dosage of CBD reduce the risk of overdosing.

In general, however, a CBD overdose in the medical sense does not seem to be possible anyway. Even studies that expected their participants to have very high CBD concentrations only registered an increased feeling of relaxation and fatigue with regard to physical side effects.

There are usually no physical side effects.

Is CBD addictive?

According to a recent report from the WHO, CBD has no psychological or physical dependency potential

Can CBD be found in the blood or urine?

Yes, in general, CBD can be detected both in the blood and in the urine for a few days or weeks, depending on the amount absorbed. However, since it is neither a psychoactive substance nor an illegal substance, there is no risk of being checked by the police during a roadside check.

Theoretically, so-called "full-spectrum" CBD products, the cannabinoids of which are extracted directly from the cannabis plant and thus contain small amounts of THC (max. 0.3%) in addition to flavor-bearing terpenes, can also result in THC being detectable in the blood. However, this only applies to very high CBD consumption. Usually the limit value in the blood always remains below the 50ng / ml detectability limit.

If you want to be on the safe side, order them CBD products from Canya from our shop, because they are guaranteed THC-free.

How Often Should I Take CBD?

Here, too, there are no generally binding statements. However, since many CBD users take the intake based on a specific symptom pattern, it is generally advisable to focus on temporary relief from this.

An assessment of the appropriate own dose is usually only possible after a certain period of familiarization and appropriate experience. It is therefore advisable to keep the lower starting dose constant for a few days before increasing it gradually.

How much CBD is there in one puff of the e-cigarette?

This question cannot be answered without further ado. Because in addition to the concentration of the selected CBD liquid, the performance of the e-cigarette and the individual pulling technique also determine the amount of steam absorbed.

Roughly speaking, one can say that 1 ml of liquid is sufficient for 50 to 200 puffs, depending on the e-cigarette used and the duration of the draw. 1 ml of CBD with 100 mg results in an approximate intake of 0.05 to 0.2 mg of CBD per puff, of which in turn, due to the bioavailability of 40-50% mentioned, almost half actually reaches your bloodstream.

Many modern e-cigarettes have a puff counter that allows you to determine relatively easily how many puffs you need on average to empty the tank of your e-cigarette. Now all you have to do is divide the total amount of CBD in your tank by the total amount of puffs to determine the dose per puff.

So if you now need 100 puffs for your 2 ml tank, for example, you know that you are using 0.02 ml of liquid per puff.

However, the amount per puff is less relevant than the recommended daily amount, which in turn also depends on your body weight and your motivation or the symptom pattern to be alleviated.

Recommended daily dosage for CBD

Again, a generally binding statement about the optimal dosage of CBD is not possible. Therefore, if you are unsure, you should always seek the advice of a doctor.

In general, it can be said that in addition to the CBD intake and your own body weight, the symptoms to be treated are also decisive for the amount of CBD required.

A maximum daily dose that can prove helpful in treating diseases such as cancer, epilepsy, and social phobia is in the range of 300-800 mg of CBD per day.

Lighter pain and inflammation as well as mild anxiety, restlessness or depressive moods, on the other hand, can be treated with a dose of 100 to 200 mg per day.

For more subtle symptoms such as light sleep problems, mood swings, stress and headaches, a light dose of 5 to 20 mg of CBD per day can help.

What should I look out for when buying CBD?

CBD-containing liquids for e-cigarettes are now offered by a large number of international manufacturers, the quality and prices of which vary greatly in some cases.

In general, the price of every CBD liquid always depends on the corresponding CBD concentration.

In our online shop, we only carry products from quality-checked and certified manufacturers who meet all the strict requirements that are intended for the European market.

Conclusion

It remains important to note that due to the numerous factors mentioned, there is no uniform and generally recommended dosage. The latter depends not only on body weight, individual metabolism and the treatment goal, but also on the form of consumption. It is therefore a good idea to consult a doctor or a knowledgeable health professional for advice. The best method is to start as low as possible and then slowly vaporize your way up.

The e-cigarette appears to be an effective technical aid for CBD and is superior to alternative forms of consumption in terms of bioavailability.
