When you’re selling cannabidiol (CBD) products, your biggest concern is your customer. You want to make sure they are getting the value for their hard-earned dollar. Furthermore, your goal is promoting health and wellness. As such, you want to make sure your customers are getting the most accurate dosage of CBD oil, CBD gummy candy, or cannabidiol tinctures. It all starts with finding the right dosage. Today I’m going to share a quick guide on getting the right dosage down for your CBD products.
The first thing to note is that the Food and Drug Administration has not set a Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) for CBD products. As such, there is no standardized serving size for cannabidiol oil. You won’t find nutrition facts on CBD or even cannabis. What this means for you as a CBD seller is you have no “official” standard of setting your own guidelines.
How can you provide your customers with the information they need to safely consume cannabidiol products? By understanding how they are going to use CBD for treating their medical issues. Then you can provide them with user-friendly labeling and dosage instructions that will best benefit them.
First off, there is no set or right dosage for CBD. Part of this involves the infancy of the product and the lack of federal regulations and guidelines for product testing. That means you cannot say that this dose of cannabidiol will provide you with the perfect treatment for a particular issue. When your customers first start taking cannabidiol, it is always advisable to take the recommended dose on the packaging. This is where your expertise as the CBD supplier comes in.
The recommended dose might be a dropper of CBD oil or a CBD gummy. Here’s the rub. Each of these methods of consuming CBD oil has its own properties for the rate of absorption. This depends on the concentration of cannabidiol in the product. Then you have to take into account the body size and chemistry of the person taking the CBD.
Finally, CBD is not a one-size-fits-all solution for every medical condition or health issue. A dosage that is effective in treating a mild condition will need to be increased to treat a more moderate or severe medical condition. Here the individual will want to tailor their treatment as they see improvements or vice versa. That’s because our endocannabinoid receptors change with our physiology. In short, as we see improvements with treatment, we simply don’t need as much of the product.
To start out with getting the right cannabidiol dosage, take a look at this CBD Dosage Calculator chart from Honest Marijuana Co.:
This chart helps your customers determine the best cannabidiol dosage based on their weight and pain level. This is a good starting point. Customers determine how many mg of CBD is in each serving size and begin with the lowest dosage. They can always take more CBD oil rather than trying to reverse the course of consumption.
A good tip for your customers is to encourage them to keep a CBD dosage diary. Suggest they monitor the effects and the physical results after each dose and write this information down in real-time. This way they can better determine the precise dosage for their own medical needs. If they are experiencing fewer positive benefits, then increasing the dose of non-psychoactive CBD is an easy step to take.
CBD is not physically addictive and does not have adverse side effects. Therefore, there is no concern of withdrawals or drug toxicity from too much CBD that you see with pharmaceuticals being replaced by cannabidiol treatment.
So what does it matter then? If your customers are able to take as much CBD as they want or need without adverse reactions, why worry about dosage at all? Because when your customers are able to use just the right amount of CBD, they are less likely to waste or overuse the product. You are helping customers save money in the long run by giving them the true value of their purchase.
