Things To Keep In Mind To Better Use CBD
Starting Slow Is Important
Starting a CBD regimen with a slow dosage and low frequency is key to getting the best out of your CBD. As the percentage of the CBD increases in the body, the benefits start to become more pronounced. The idea of microdosing, which is the intake of a small dosage of CBD at regular and consistent intervals, is a must especially if you are a beginner or a senior citizen.
See how your body reacts and consume accordingly. But remember, a small, consistent dosage is key!
Never Have On An Empty Stomach
The chances of having an upset stomach or feelings of nausea are much more if you take CBD on an empty stomach. Make sure you have at least snacks or a light meal to best welcome the CBD and at the same time prep your stomach.
Do Not Mix With Intoxicating Substances
The reaction of CBD with alcohol and drugs is still up in the air. It is best that the whole ‘experiment’ be avoided and you desist from consuming them. It has been studied that the intake of these, enhances the levels of intoxicant and psychoactive substances in the bloodstream.
