A Birch + Fog Guide to CBD: What is CBD and how can it work for me?

What is CBD and How Can it Work For Me?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabis compound that is non-psychoactive and chock-full of medicinal benefits – meaning you get all the good stuff without the typical “high” feeling. Although many therapeutic plants involve a combination of both CBD and THC, CBD on its own is making its presence felt in the research and medicinal communities as more studies and testimonials attest to its healing power. Yay for us!

CBD can help you address:

  • Stress
  • Pain
  • Nausea
  • Inflammation
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Hypertension
  • Menopause
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Psoriasis

…and the list literally goes on.

 

How should I consume CBD?

As the popularity of CBD grows, more and more methods of use are making themselves known. Among these methods are capsules, spraystinctures, lotions and vaporizer pens.

The most basic way to start getting results is with a tincture that can be applied under the tongue or added directly to your food or drink. The good thing about the sub-lingual delivery method is that it ensures that the CBD goodness is absorbed into your bloodstream quickly (some people report immediate relief). If that sounds a little too daunting, edibles are also a great way to introduce CBD into your lifestyle.

How much should I use?

Just like cannabis therapy in general, CBD therapy is a form of personalized medicine. What’s great is that experimenting with CBD is incredibly low-risk as there are no known side effects. We recommend using this chart which includes starting points for CBD consumption based on weight and severity of condition:

 

Weight 50-90 lbs 91-150lbs 151-250lbs 250+ lbs
I feel:
Little to no pain 9mg 12mg 18mg 23mg
Moderate pain 12mg 15mg 23mg 28mg
Severe pain 15mg 18mg 28mg 33mg

*CBD use is subjective to each body- factors like composition, diet, fitness & environment can affect your experience. This chart contains generalized suggestions on CBD dosages based on feedback provided by cannabis consumers, keeping in mind that frequency of use determines tolerance.

 

Continuing your CBD Journey

CBD

It is important to be conscious of the effects that CBD is having on you. CBD is considered “biphasic” which refers to different effects based on dosage. For example, it’s been reported that lower doses can cause alertness while higher doses can cause calmness/relaxation. We recommend keeping notes so you can observe and achieve the right dosage unique to you.
