Beginning Your Journey with Hemp CBD


It’s not unusual for people interested in trying something new to hesitate when they feel overwhelmed by their options. Conflicted thoughts are often fueled by the fear of making the wrong decision.

Even those who spend numerous hours investigating the many potential health benefits of hemp CBD, who understand the significance of endocannabinoid support, often delay making a purchasing decision. Some hesitate because they are confused by industry terminology, others are simply overwhelmed by the significant number of available product options. Many people simply don’t know where to start.

As with any new experience, it is often helpful to have someone guide you through the decision-making process in a way that’s easy to understand. We can help you through those first crucial steps, CBD isn’t that complicated once you know where to begin.


Begin by Selecting Between CBD isolate or Full-Spectrum CBD Oil   

The first step to becoming a CBD enthusiast is selecting the type of CBD product you would prefer to use. You may have noticed while investigating the numerous potential benefits of hemp CBD that some products are made with full-spectrum hemp CBD oil while others are made with CBD isolate.

The choice between these distinctly different products is simply a matter of preference; each product type has its advantages. To select the product that’s right for you, consider the following:




Those who may be interested in the potential benefits of full-spectrum CBD but want to stay away from THC also have a third alternative, broad-spectrum CBD wax. Broad spectrum wax contains many of the potentially beneficial cannabinoids and compounds of a full-spectrum product, without the THC. Broad-spectrum wax can be used sublingually (under the tongue), added to recipes, used to create your own broad-spectrum tincture, or for dabbing, a form of vaping.


Select a Product Type Suited to Your Needs and Lifestyle

Now that you have decided between an isolate product or full-spectrum CBD, you will want to choose a product that fits your lifestyle. While many people start their CBD adventure with a simple CBD tincture, you have many options. Consider the benefits of selecting from some of these popular products:





Determining the Best Dosage for Your Needs

Whenever you purchase a CBD product, it’s essential to know how much cannabidiol your selection contains. This number should be clearly listed in milligrams. When purchasing a CBD tincture, the number you see represents the amount of CBD in the bottle, not the amount per dose. The higher the number, the less product you will use at a time.

It’s important to know that everyone has unique body chemistry, there is no one-size-fits-all method of determining an individual’s CBD dosage.  A dosage amount that works for someone else may not be ideal for you. The best advice we can give you is to start on the low end and work your way up. While there is no harm in taking too much CBD, no risk of overdose, taking more CBD than necessary will increase your cost without providing any additional benefits. For example, if you have decided to begin your CBD journey with a tincture, consider the following suggestions:

If your ideal dosage of CBD is determined to be 10 mg, a 250mg tincture will provide you with 25 doses, while a 1000 mg bottle contains 100 doses. You can figure out the cost per milligram of CBD by dividing the cost of the bottle by how many milligrams the bottle contains.

When you select capsules, softgels or gummies, there is no need to worry about measuring individual dosages; the work is done for you. A 25-30 mg per dose works well for many CBD users and is still considered a low-to-moderate dose of CBD.

No matter which type of product you select, it’s important to keep in mind that some people feel energized after taking CBD, while others find CBD a bit sedating. It is often recommended to those taking CBD for the first time to try their product at a time of day when any potentially noticeable effects will not be problematic.


Your Doctor Knows Best

CBD is not a medication; it is not a cure for any known health disorder. CBD is a natural dietary supplement that mimics the messengers and influences the receptors of your endocannabinoid system, the communication network that regulates nearly every essential function in your body.

As with any dietary supplementit’s always best to discuss your intentions with your health care provider before making a product selection. CBD may not be right for everyone and has been known to interact with several types of medication, particularly antidepressants.
