An outline for choosing your strength and dosage.

Everyone has to start somewhere, so if you’re new to CBDA, we’ve got you covered in this CBDA dosing guide! This CBDA dosing guide should shed some light on finding the correct dose for you and valuable insights into CBDA. Each product has a different dosage per serving. You can find the amount of CBDA per serving size in the nutrition facts located on the label of every product. Once you know the amount per serving, you can decide on the right place to start.

What’s your reason for taking CBDA?

Answering this question can help you decide what dose is correct for you. We’ve condensed some of the top reasons for taking CBDA into three categories: clarity, calm, focus - pain management, discomfort - sleep. Users generally feel clarity and focus with lower doses, whereas a higher dose can help with sleep, pain management, and discomfort.

How to think about dosing.

The amount of CBDA needed per person varies, so we have compiled feedback from our customers. Here are some typical dosing amounts. 

    • Stress, Anxiety - 10 mg - 20 mg

    • Help with sleep - 30 mg - 60 mg

    • Help managing pain - 30 mg - 60 mg+

Our customers will start with these amounts and increase or decrease the dose by 5-10mg until you find your desired effect. If dosing by dropper doesn’t work for you, we also offer CBDA gummies and softgels with precise dosing amounts.

What is the best way to take it?

Our CBDA oils are typically taken sub-lingually. Drop the desired dose under your tongue and hold it there for 30 seconds. Dropping the oil under the tongue is the fastest way to feel the effects. We hear customers say they have the best results when they drop their dose under their tongue and then swallow. You can also add it to your favorite beverage. Our CBDA gummies and softgels take about 30-45 minutes to feel the effects. All methods are suitable, but most importantly, we recommend being routine with your dose. Be it in the morning with coffee, mid-day to manage stress, before bed to help sleep, or all three.

How can I tell if it’s working?

See how you feel. CBDA affects everyone differently. Since everyone’s endocannabinoid system is different, some will observe the effects more so than others. CBDA’s effects can be discreet, and it will be more apparent to look for what you do not feel as opposed to what you do. Make it a habit. If CBDA is new to you, we suggest you take it daily for a week. Keep notes on when you take it and how you feel to track your dosage. Generally, you’ll feel the effects of CBDA within 30 minutes; some may experience more subtle effects or take more time. You may notice a difference immediately, or it may take a little time. Either way, you may see the impact more if you focus on what you aren’t feeling rather than what you are. CBDA is most effective when you start a routine with CBDA, so taking it habitually is recommended.
