Finding Your Ideal Dose:

When it comes to CBD, there really is no “right” dose. Everyone is different and everyone reacts to hemp products differently, which is why creating your routine is an individual process. There is, however, one factor that’s universal: consistency.

Consistency:

Consistency is key when incorporating hemp or CBD into your routine. By taking these products every day, you’re able to maximize hemp’s balancing effects and the effectiveness of your body’s own endocannabinoid system.

The endocannabinoid system is responsible for regulating many key bodily processes including but not limited to immune function, pain, mood, stress, sleep, and metabolism. Essentially, its main goal is to keep our bodies in balance so that it can function properly. You can restore your endocannabinoid systems’ natural balance by taking CBD or other cannabinoid products consistently, every day.

Can I take too much CBD?

There is no need to worry about overdosing, as the toxic dose of CBD is around 20,000 mg and non-lethal, according to researchers. That would be almost 16 bottles of our 1200 mg tinctures all at once!

CBD is personal so what you consider to be too much really depends on your desired effects. That being said, CBD does have the potential to lower blood pressure and interact with other pharmaceuticals so we recommend checking in with your doctor.

What if my CBD isn’t working for me?

Everyone’s body responds to CBD differently so you may not feel effects instantly. This doesn’t mean that CBD won’t work for you, though. You just might need to adjust a few things in your routine.

If you aren’t already, try taking your CBD every day. CBD works best once it accumulates in the body because it gives our endocannabinoid system a constant supply to work with, which ultimately improves its function.

If you’re already taking your CBD every day, try increasing your dosage until you feel your desired effects. Another option is incorporating another BFF hemp CBD product into your routine. For example, if you’re using the 06 dream tincture and not feeling the effects, consider combining it with our 05 soft gels.

Tincture Dosage Chart.

Remember, there really is no “right” way to use CBD and it’s almost impossible to take too much, so feel free to have fun and experiment to create your perfect routine.
