How Much CBD Paste Should I Take?

Knowing which products are available and understanding their dosages can be tricky for a CBD newbie. In this article, you will be able to know what CBD is, the benefits of CBD, what CBD paste is, how CBD paste is consumed and how much CBD paste you should take. 

The increasing popularity of cannabidiol (CBD) means that new CBD products are launched into the market. If you have heard about CBD products or used some of them, you will agree that they are available in almost every form. Although CBD paste is not so popular, it is thought to be more potent than other CBD products. If you are a new user, you may not know the ideal dose for CBD paste. However, as it stands now, CBD is non-intoxicating and has mild side effects. There is no universal dosage guide for CBD. Experts say that you can begin with a smaller dose; if it works well, you can increase the dose until you get your desired effects.

What Is CBD?          

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a chemical component in the cannabis sativa plant. The cannabis plant has more than one hundred chemical components called cannabinoids. These cannabinoids are responsible for the therapeutic and psychoactive cannabis is widely known for. Tetracannabidiol, or THC, is another chemical compound of the cannabis plant. The main psychoactive component causes a "high" feeling when consumed.

You can now purchase CBD practically in any form. More CBD products are being launched into the market, including CBD bath bombs, gummies, lotions, candles, and even CBD paste. CBD paste is a new product popping into the industry recently. CBD is not psychoactive. When consumed, it does not cause any mind-altering effect. Many people who want to grasp the therapeutic benefits of cannabis opt for CBD because of its non-intoxicating property.

CBD gets into the body through the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Mazzoli & Pessione (2016) observed that the ECS is responsible for most bodily functions, such as regulating mood, appetite, memory, pain, sleep, metabolism, immune responses, and other brain-signaling systems. CBD does not bind directly to endocannabinoid receptors in your ECS like THC. However, it influences the receptors to improve the performance of ECS.

What Does Research Say about the Benefits of CBD?

Hoop & Shurtleff (2019) found that drugs containing cannabinoids may help treat certain rare forms of epilepsy, nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy, and loss of appetite and weight loss associated with HIV/AIDS. In addition, some evidence suggests modest benefits of cannabis or cannabinoids for chronic pain and multiple sclerosis symptoms.

Williams & Diane (2021) also indicated that CBD might be effective for conditions such as epilepsy, psychosis, anxiety, depression, pain and inflammation, and skin conditions. According to Maroon & Bost (2018), CBD contains anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties that can be effective for neurological problems such as Parkinson's disease (PD), Alzheimer's disease (AD), multiple sclerosis (MS), neuropathic pain, and childhood seizure disorder, Lennox-Gastaut and Dravet syndromes.

What Is CBD Paste?

CBD paste is a soft thick substance that contains CBD extract mixed with wax, natural oils such as hemp oil or coconut oil, and other ingredients such as butter. CBD paste is thicker in texture than CBD oil. The CBD extracts used to manufacture CBD paste contain extremely low levels of THC. Therefore, CBD paste cannot make you "high" or cause any psychoactive effect. CBD paste is usually sold in syringes to allow easy and precise administration of the dose. CBD paste is known for its versatility over other CBD products.

How Do You Consume CBD Paste?

CBD paste can be taken sublingually. The sublingual method involves rubbing CBD paste under the tongue and allowing it to rest for about 120 seconds for absorption before swallowing. You can also consume CBD paste by mixing it in your foods or drinks. Additionally, you can apply CBD paste topically by rubbing it directly on your skin. However, CBD paste is a relatively new product in the market, and research on the benefits of this formulation is very limited.

How Much CBD Paste Should You Take?

CBD paste dosage entirely depends on the health conditions and symptoms you try to treat. Different people respond differently to CBD usage. There is nothing like a standard dose for CBD paste. However, many experts suggest that it is best to start with smaller doses and increase them gradually till you get your desired effect. If you experience any adverse side effects, you should discontinue usage immediately. Individuals who take other prescription medications should consult their doctors before using any CBD product. CBD is known to interact with various medications and may cause adverse effects. Doctors should also be able to recommend correct CBD doses that may be safe for you to consume. Users of CBD isolate, such as CBD paste, report observing effects when consuming 25 to 75 mg of CBD. This means that any dose around this range of measurements is effective enough.

How Do You Know That Your CBD Paste Is Working?

You will know the CBD paste is working well when you start noticing its effect or when the reason for consuming it is achieved. For example, if your sleeping quality improves or your pain reduces, you will know that CBD paste works well. Suppose you use CBD paste for other therapeutic benefits such as anxiety or inflammation. You may consume it for quite a long time before feeling the effects.

Conclusion

CBD paste is probably the newest CBD product on the market today. Getting the right dosage can be overwhelming for those new to CBD. How much CBD paste you should consume depends entirely on your preferences and expectations. There is no universal dosage guide for CBD paste. Experts suggest you start with a smaller dose and then increase it gradually until you get your desired effects.
