Finding Your CBD Sweet Spot: A Guide

No matter the reason you turn to CBD, it’s important that you optimize your experience by finding your CBD sweet spot. The sweet spot is considered the perfect dose to work with your body. Everyone is different, so you sholdn’t just follow someone else’s dosage if your body needs more or less CBD for optimal results. 

Finding your CBD sweet spot is going to take a bit of trial and error. Don’t give up if your CBD is not working right away. There are many factors to look at and we recommend starting to adjust your dosage before looking at other reasons you aren’t getting optimal results. 

Tips for starting CBD 

Remember that figuring out your optimal dose is going to be a journey. You will likely have to adjust your dose before you find the sweet spot, which can be frustrating to those who are looking for immediate relief. It’s worth sticking it out, though. 

Some people discover relief immediately using CBD. Others need to build up a solid amount in their body before they feel significant effects. 

It can be difficult to know if you need to adjust your dose, though. The effects of CBD are often subtle which can be difficult to gauge when you first start. 

One thing to keep in mind is CBD purity. You should always use pure CBD for the best results. Products that are not tested for purity and potency at an ISO accredited laboratory should be avoided. There is no way to verify the contents otherwise, and this can lead to a reduction in therapeutic effects and can even be harmful if the product contains contaminants. 

Take CBD at the same time each day when you first start 

A good tip for starting CBD is to take it at the same time every day until you understand how it works with your body. Taking it at a consistent time is a good way to eliminate factors that may influence the CBD efficacy. 

Don’t know the right time? We recommend starting in the evening, or whenever you are able to relax and pay attention to your body. However, if you are using it for a specific ailment you experience throughout the day, taking it when you most need it may also be a good way to gauge results and see if you feel relief. 

Keep track of your experience

New users who are wondering how much CBD to take should keep a journal to track their experience. We aren’t always our most reliable narrators, so keeping track of the experience is an easy way to stay on top of the proper dosage. 

Write down the consumption method, time, and dosage used each time you take CBD. Be sure to note any other factors that may influence the way you feel, such as if you’re hydrated or fed.

After taking CBD, return in 30 minutes, an hour, and two hours to write down your experience. You will only have to do this until you have found your CBD sweet spot. 

How to adjust doses to find your CBD sweet spot

If you’re new to CBD, start small. We suggest starting with the lowest dose recommended on your product before moving on to higher doses. 

Stick to each dose for three days before trying a new one. We recommend doing one dose per day for three days, and then taking that same dose twice a day for three days. From there, continue to slowly up your dose and take twice per day until you’ve found optimal relief. 

Remember that if you still aren’t feeling relief, you may need to switch product types or even opt for a different product. The most common culprit for not experiencing effects is using CBD that is not pure or potent enough. It’s why our CBD database is only populated with products tested by ISO accredited laboratories for purity and potency.
