You’ve heard it before, but what’s really going on with microdosing?
The term “micro-dosing” refers to a relatively new technique for consuming botanical compounds, like CBD and other plant-based substances, in small doses over a long period of time to achieve an enhanced sense of wellbeing. Don’t worry, we’re going to take a deep dive into this methodical approach to see why it’s the hottest new buzzword in tech circles all around the world.
First off, let’s just assume that every morning you consume your perfect 30mg dose of CBD to help combat stress, anxiety, chronic pain or any other discomfort that CBD may assist you with.
Now let’s break it down: instead of taking that 30mg all at once, we can apply the method of microdosing, which breaks down your full day’s dosage of 30mg into six individual 5 mg doses, or three 10mg doses spread out throughout the day. Perhaps you take 10mg the morning, 10mg at lunchtime, and 10mg with supper or right before bed. Let’s be aware that the day’s 30mg dose has not changed, and you are still delivering 30 full milligrams of CBD into your body by nightfall. Though, the idea with microdosing is to create more of a lower sweeping holistic effect on the body, versus the immediate full dose of 30mg.
The biggest difference will be noticed in the effects you feel after dosing. Most often, if you take the full dosage of 30mg in the morning the effects of CBD will last between up to 4 hours, and start wearing off sometime in the early afternoon. This gives your stress or anxiety a good chance to rear it’s ugly head later that evening, possibly leaving you vulnerable to anxiety or discomfort. With microdosing, you can break up the 30 mg into three or six separate doses taken consistently throughout the day in an effort to spread the benefits of enhanced wellbeing over a longer stretch of the day.
Here are a few simple steps you may take to establish your personal CBD microdose regimen:
Step #1: Start Small.
Commence your microdosing routine by consuming only 10 mg of CBD. You can start at 20 mg if you have a higher body fat percentage, or have been accustomed to the effects previously.
Step #2: Monitor the Effects.
In the course of the next one or two hours, make sure to keep a tab on how you feel. Don’t forget that CBD manifests differently in different people, depending on the factors we mentioned including prior illness or fatigue.
Even though CBD is not intoxicating, it’s not uncommon for the user to experience a sense of soothing calmness, relaxation, and “increased peace of mind.” Other people may feel mentally energized, awakened or reinvigorated or slightly dizzy, in which case please find somewhere soft to lay down.
Step #3: Adjust the Dose as Needed.
Increase the serving size by 10mg up or down if you have not felt the desired holistic effects after 1 hour. Once again, please remember to closely monitor the effects and how you feel after any dose increase. Your body will tell you when it’s right.
Repeat this routine over the next 3-5 days, making sure to take notes on how you feel. Monitor your overall wellness throughout the course of the day, noting moments of peak stress, and track your sleep pattern during the subsequent nights of the trial.
It is worth noting that different people experience different degrees of effectiveness when they consume CBD. That is why it is recommended that you do a bit of trial and error to find your ideal microdose of cannabidiol. The reason we’ve engineered Adaptoids CBD Vitamins in 10mg increments is so you can fine tune the healing experience to your desired effective outcome. Whether you are taking cbd to manage stress, get better sleep, improve your focus or ease a recovery, microdosing may help you get your effective routine just right.
Keep in mind, ingesting large one-time doses may also push the body to develop a tolerance to where it takes more and more CBD each time to reach your desired effects.With microdosing, on the other hand, it’s a low and slow approach where you ingest smaller, more consistent doses where perhaps you end up taking greater care of acknowledging the effects of CBD on your body. In doing so, you’ll have completed a very important step on the road to long-term wellness and natural healing.
