How Much CBD Should I Take?

One of the most difficult things for new users to CBD is figuring out how much CBD should I take?

Since CBD is not recognized by the FDA as a dietary supplement, yet, there is no standardized recommendation for the amount of CBD you should take at a time.

CBD dosing can be confusing because of this. However, don’t worry. CBD School is in session, and we’ll tell you all you need to know about the proper dosing of CBD, or cannabidiol, products.

CBD Dosing Explained

There is no straight-forward answer when it comes to how much CBD you should take. It depends on several different factors, but body composition is probably most important.

As a very general guideline, most CBD organizations agree that taking about .25mg of CBD per pound of bodyweight will get you the results you want.

CBG Oil: What is It? Why Should You Care?

Haven’t heard of CBG, or more specifically, CBG oil? It’s pretty famous! CBG stands for cannabigerol, and this plant compound has been given the title of mother of all other phytocannabinoids with good reason!

What is CBG?

As the cannabis plant goes through its flowering cycle, CBGA (the cannabigerol acidic form of CBG) goes through an important process. Enzymes held within the hemp plant break down the Cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) into various other cannabinoid acids. The most common cannabigerolic acid forms are cannabidiolic (CBDA) and tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA).

The plant goes through a process known as decarboxylation, which means a heating or aging process. This process converts those acids to CBD, CBG, and THC. In short, this means that without CBG and that specific plant process, those popular cannabinoids such as CBD and THC would not exist. And without CBG, you wouldn’t get any CBD/CBG products such as gummies, balms, topicals, and vapes. Thanks, CBG!

CBG Oil vs. CBD Oil

Now you know what CBG is, and the process the cannabis plant goes through to make it, how is CBG different from CBD? Chemical structure aside, the main difference between CBG and CBD is how they interact with the cannabinoid receptors and enzymes inside the human body.

For example, CBG binds directly with the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the endocannabinoid system. This is the system in charge of controlling many of the functions of the organs within the human body. CBD interacts with this system also but not as directly as CBG does.

Smoking CBD flower? CBD pre-rolls could become the next big thing (especially if you want to quit smoking)

As the CBD market continues to expand, new innovations keep surfacing up.

While smoking cannabis flowers is nothing new and has long been the mode of intake for consumers worldwide, up until this point, smoking CBD flower has been relatively unheard of.

Why, after all, would someone who is used to smoking cannabis shift into a different kind of smoking that would not offer psychoactive effects?

Simple. Not everyone enjoys how they feel after smoking cannabis. CBD, however, is a different chemical of the same flower but doesn’t lead to any of the psychoactive effects THC is famous for. But, this CBD smoke does contain, however, a plethora of benefits that made it so famous in the first place. That's what made CBD pre-rolls the next big thing in the CBD marketplace.

You Can Now Fly Out of LAX with an Ounce of Weed

California just made a big move for marijuana legalization.

Long considered ahead of the curve on cannabis trends, the state was a bit behind on the recreational weed front. 

That all of course changed this year when recreational cannabis sales became legal in California on January 1st.

Recreational sales are in full swing in the Golden State, and earlier this week Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) announced it will now allow passengers to travel through the airport with up to one-ounce of marijuana. 

Yeah — you heard that right: You can fly out of Los Angeles and take your beloved sour diesel or blueberry haze with you.

How Much Does Epidiolex Cost? (The Cost May Shock You)

Written by Jen Keehn

Updated September 13, 2021

Medically Reviewed by Dr. Sandra El-Hajj

In June 2018, the FDA announced the approval of Epidiolex, a CBD-based drug, as a Schedule Class V substance under the Controlled Substance Act. Its adaptation came three months after it has been approved as a treatment of seizures associated with Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, two rare and extremely serious forms of epilepsy1

GW Pharmaceuticals CEO, Justin Gover said, “We are pleased that the DEA has placed Epidiolex in the lowest restriction Schedule, because it will help ensure that patients with LGS and Dravet syndrome, two of the most debilitating forms of epilepsy, can access this important new treatment option through their physicians. With this final step in the regulatory process completed, we are working hard to make Epidiolex available within the next six weeks as we know there is excitement for a standardized version of cannabidiol that has undergone the rigor of controlled clinical trials and been approved by the FDA2.

Afraid of Public Speaking? Try CBD Hemp Oil.

I heard somewhere that people are more afraid of public speaking than they are of dying.

This never made sense to me because I always liked public speaking. I am scared of plenty of things but public speaking isn’t one of them. 

Giving a speech, especially on a topic I am passionate about, really charges me up.

I realize I am an exception. Most people do not like public speaking.

And like it or not, you will have to give a speech at some point be it for a college class, a presentation at work, or your best friend’s wedding.
