Starting CBD is a completely personal experience, it’s better to start with low doses and work your way up. Listening to your body is the number one rule that we should all follow when starting the use of products with CBD. Everybody is different, there are countless variables such as weight, diet, metabolism, genetics, environment and product consistency, so it’s always best to start off with the minimal suggested CBD dosage on any product, then gradually increasing the dose until the desired results are achieved. Trust the process. There is nothing to be scared of, especially with CBD, which has been agreed to be non-toxic, even at large doses.
People often ask us, “Can I get addicted to CBD oil?” This is a tricky question, and the answer ultimately depends on your school of thought.
Based strictly on chemistry, the answer is no. Cannabidiol (CBD) is not physically addictive in the same way substances like heroin, cocaine, alcohol, opiates, benzodiazepines, and related substances can be. Further, CBD cannot produce any physical withdrawal symptoms in and of itself upon cessation of use.
(Interestingly, CBD is currently undergoing study for its ability to minimize withdrawal from drugs with severe cessation symptoms, like opiates.)
However, human beings can get addicted to just about anything that isn’t chemically addicting: exercise, music, sex, and food are great examples.
Some people find they prefer using less CBD in the morning to keep them a bit more alert for work, and more in the evening to help them sleep. Some prefer a higher dose in the morning to pep up their energy levels, and less in the evening as they find it keeps them too alert to sleep. Some people skip the afternoon dose all together!
Remember, everyone is different, it’s not the amount of CBD you take, It’s finding the right amount that works for you.
