Are you new to CBD? Have you been hearing about the many benefits for a long time now, and finally giving the substance a try? Have you decided you want to incorporate CBD, but not sure the best way to do so?
Trying anything new for the first time can feel a little intimidating. And, if you’re a first-time CBD user, this is no different! There are a few things we recommend doing if you’re a CBD newcomer, to help you get started with the substance and to help find the best and most effective dosage for your unique needs.
As with anything, the first time you try a new treatment or medication it can be beneficial to “start slow.” This means taking the substance in a lower dose or amount the first time around. This allows you to test it out and gauge your body’s reaction to the substance upfront. As you get more comfortable and assess the effects, you can better determine how much you need in your system and can increase the dosage accordingly as time goes on.
Try A Tincture
Experimenting with different CBD formats can be a good idea for anyone getting started. There are a lot of options for getting your CBD, from capsules to tinctures to balms and vaports. A tincture is one good way to get started, as it allows you to both try a very small amount as well as regulate your dosage. Tinctures also allow for easy incremental increases in dosage, and are approachable as they can be taken on their own or added into a food or liquid. Check out different tinctures and see if this format is appropriate for you.
Compare and Contrast
When using CBD to address a specific, exercise-related need (or any need for that matter!) it’s important to pay attention to how you feel and the benefits you receive to ensure it’s working for you and to identify what you can do to improve performance over time. Some users even choose to to write down or track symptoms and results, which will help you quickly compare not only how effective CBD is but also how CBD stacks up against previous or differentiating methods of treating pain and soreness such as NAISDs.
Know Your Goals
Having a clearly defined goal or reason for taking CBD, as well as a desired outcome, is important when taking CBD for the first time. Understanding upfront what you want – or need – to achieve with CBD can guide your dosage, as well as in ensuring CBD is the correct choice for you. As CBD’s effects vary for different people, being clear on the goal for you and your body is a great thing to keep in mind.
