Overview of CBD Serving Amount
Cannabidiol, a naturally occurring phytocannabinoid found in the resinous flower of cannabis. The therapeutic properties of cannabidiol (CBD) are being tested, phytocannabinoids which are unique to cannabis and results to its therapeutic profile. CBD a safe and non-addictive substance works by mimicking and augmenting the effects of endogenous cannabinoids in the human body. In June 2018 the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved cannabidiol under the brand name Epidiolex for the treatment of two types of severe pediatric seizure disorders known as Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome. However, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) removed the drug from the Schedule I classification and is now placed under Schedule V. People take CBD orally for anxiety, bipolar disorder, dystonia, multiple scelorosis, Parkinson’s disease and schizophrenia among other numerous benefits.
The weight, diet, metabolism, genetics, environment, product consistency makes a standard serving amount of CBD impossible. However, there are some serving sizes set despite this problems. CBD-oil comes in various forms and concentration based on the manufacturer. Most bottles come with their unique user-manual. CBD oil’s work and efficacy is subjective (works differently for each individual).
Due to the subjective nature of the oil’s efficacy, servings are individual based. There is a unique endocannabinoid system in different individuals. CBD’s mechanism of action is by regulating the endocannabinoid system by blocking various receptors. This is the major reason for the individualized servings of CBD despite the serving suggestions on the bottle.
Genetics has an important role to play including the tolerance and good health of the patient. The serving amount will be based on age; a younger person will not use the same dosage as an older patient. The health status of the patient also comes to play to serving size.
To calculate how much CBD is in a single dropper (usually holds 1ml of liquid). Once the milliliter (ml) of liquid has been deciphered the formula below can be used:
[Total CBD in bottle] / [Number of milliliters in bottle] = mg of CBD in a dropper
There is no established lethal serving amount of CBD oil but caution should be taken. If CBD oil is noted to affect an individual in a negative manner then it should be stopped and professional help should be taken from medical personnel.
