If you’re a regular with BeYou, chances are you’re looking for natural solutions to those everyday problems that no one talks about. At BeYou we always prioritise natural methods, and being direct about them—real talk. If we’re talking about CBD, we want to look at the good and the bad.
If you've landed on this article, you're thinking it's time to consider cannabidiol, better known as CBD. It's no wonder, considering the popularity of CBD in the United Kingdom. The market for CBD in the UK has grown at double digits and is expected to rise to just under £1 billion by 2025.
Like with anything new though, it’s understandable to be cautious before you buy CBD. In this guide, we highlight some of the top CBD concerns, plus offer insights into how to resolve them. This is a great way to prepare for your first CBD product(s)!
What is the recommended CBD dosage?
Discovering the right CBD dosage for you should be one of your most central concerns when using CBD. Often, if users have experienced lacklustre results from their CBD products it’s because they weren’t dosing correctly, or were dosing inconsistently. CBD is always about balance.
At BeYou we love listening, which is why we’ve spoken directly to our users to find the average optimum dosage. Our research has shown that taking 70mg of CBD per day is that Goldilocks number—not too much, not too little, but just right. When taking 70mg a day, it's easier to gauge the results and alter amounts from there, either increasing or lowering your dosage depending on your satisfaction.
How do you find the correct dosage for you?
The best way to understand what dosage works for you is through trial and error. Regardless of your choice dosage, it helps to know that results are temporary—you can scale up or down at any time.
Let's say you've started with 70mg a day for a week. If you're satisfied with the results, you can scale back your dosage by 20mg a day. Or, if you're dissatisfied, you can increase your dosage by 20mg a day.
Other tips for finding the appropriate dosage for you include:
Monitoring how much CBD oil is in your dropper, and perhaps taking two halves of a syringe in a row (which is sometimes easier than taking one full syringe).
Taking CBD drops and CBD sprays under the tongue and allowing them to sit for 90 seconds to dissolve properly.
Trying a variety of CBD products, from CBD sprays and CBD oils to CBD balms and more.
Looking at consistent vs. intermittent CBD use
Intermittent use of CBD is far less effective than taking CBD consistently. Nearly all of the users that we spoke to reported having less satisfaction if they only took CBD sporadically.
If you're taking CBD oil drops, for example, remember to take them daily. If necessary, set an alarm as a reminder, or stick a post-it on your mirror! Make sure your CBD routine fits your lifestyle too. You can take CBD in the morning after you brush your teeth, or during the lunchtime hours, or at night as you're getting ready for bed!
And speaking of the day vs night, BeYou CBD users have also reported more satisfaction when they take CBD throughout the day, rather than finding a singular "sweet spot." Try to spread your doses out for the most satisfaction.
Deciding to buy CBD
Using this guide to the common CBD dosage concerns, you'll find that resolving them is quite easy. Knowing how to properly use CBD is simply a matter of time and practice. After you've experimented, you'll understand what works best for you, your body, and your lifestyle.
