How much CBD and THC should you consume?
A guide to picking the right products for your body
The world of CBD and THC products is full of options to explore. Between topical options like creams and balms, vapes, tinctures, and gummies, the range of premium hemp products is wide.
For anyone new to the process of shopping for CBD, it can be a bit difficult to know where exactly to start. First, it’s important to narrow down which format you’d prefer — CBD primarily comes in three options.
The first, full-spectrum, lives up to its name; this type of CBD has all the components of the cannabis plant, which means it includes up to 0.3% THC. The second type, broad-spectrum, has all the components except for THC. Last, CBD isolate is pure CBD, free from any compounds from the cannabis plant.
For CBD products that are consumed, like gummies or tinctures (as opposed to products applied to the skin like topicals), it’s important to take a moment to figure out the best amount before ingestion.
According to research shared by CNET, in general, CBD dosages are dependent on what an individual is hoping to treat. The research that is available on CBD treatments has very varied dosage levels — for example, someone hoping to lower their anxiety might find success with a different level than someone hoping to treat insomnia.
January is National CBD Month, which means here in the Consequence Shop, we’re offering some serious discounts on our tinctures and flower products. Take our High Strength Flower Lab tincture, for example — as this is a higher strength CBD product with a very high cannabinoid content level, it’s recommended that this option be diluted in water or another liquid. Counter that with our Elevate Tincture — while this is a full-spectrum tincture, the cannabinoid content level is lower, since this tincture is infused in organic MCT oil and delivers 33mg of whole plant extract per milliliter.
For tinctures like these, studies from medical professionals show that 40 mg to 160 mg per serving is ideal for an adult hoping to help regulate their sleep, while a slightly lower dosage around 25mg has shown to be helpful for adults with anxiety. For people just starting out with products like these, it’s best to start on the lower side and work up to a dosage that feels most effective, rather than aiming too high.
