Microdosing is exciting in America right now. From Silicon Valley executives, home of Facebook, Apple, Google, and Twitter, to medical cannabis patients, the world seems to be taking notice.
Because microdosing CBD products is a user-friendly way to get the cannabinoids you need without disrupting your daily life. In addition, it is said that ingesting a small amount will improve concentration and lead to alertness of the brain. This makes CBD a popular method for people working with computers, such as programmers.
A recent study showed increased creativity, well-being, productivity and focus on microdosing (microdosing) days . (It seems that not all were positive results.)
Microdosing is the practice of ingesting psychoactive substances in such small amounts that the psychotropic effects are generally negligible, while the associated health benefits are still felt.
What is Microdosing?
Microdosing CBD is a technique that involves ingesting very small amounts of cannabidiol on a regular basis.

If you are new to CBD, microdosing is a great way to better understand the effects of CBD. We suggest trying a microdosing schedule before limiting the timing of your CBD intake. This will help you find the optimal dose for your body.
Microdosing is also a great reset for those who have experienced CBD and feel they have developed a tolerance. This is because resistance can be restored over time.
Microdosing is a CBD intake method that allows you to know how much CBD you respond to, and you can also benefit from CBD throughout the day.
Why Microdosing CBD?
CBD is not intoxicating and does not produce psychoactive effects (getting high) when taken in low or high doses. Instead, CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in your brain. It is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids, enzymes, and cannabinoid receptors.
In a biological sense, the ECS plays a key role in regulating several vital organs and body systems, creating the delicate balance essential to your health and well-being.
More specifically, the endocannabinoid system helps regulate hormonal balance, sleep, body temperature, heart rate, mood, pain sensations, appetite, feel-good responses, memory, and many other cognitive processes.
For example, if there is something that interferes with the endocannabinoids involved in mood and hormonal activity. You tend to be moody, stressed, and anxious.
Endocannabinoids bind to cannabinoid receptors. These are proteins and biochemicals found throughout the central nervous system (CNS). Your brain is a major component of your central nervous system.
Cannabinoids such as THC (which is commonly said to get you high) and CBD are similar to endocannabinoids in almost every way, but they are produced outside the body (plant sources) .
Endogenous, "end" is spelled endo, not "end" which means the end . It is a prefix meaning "within..." and is of Greek origin, meaning "within the body...". Endocannabinoids are meant to be endocannabinoids. In other words, it is made in the body.
For this reason, cannabinoids like THC also bind to cannabinoid receptors, specifically CB1 and CB2 .

Unlike THC, CBD does not directly bind to cannabinoid receptors. Instead, it affects the ability of cannabinoid receptors to interact with endocannabinoids. This is how it interacts with ECS.
Unfortunately, endocannabinoid levels start to settle as you continue to use CBD. This is where microdosing CBD can help.
With microdoses of CBD rather than single doses, the body tends to maintain a constant level of endocannabinoids, allowing you to enjoy its health and therapeutic benefits throughout the day.
Research into CBD microdosing is ongoing, but the scientific community is of the view that there are no significant downsides to splitting your daily CBD dose into smaller doses.
Microdosing with CBD oil
CBD oil is usually packaged in 10ml or 30ml bottles, and each bottle varies in strength and potency, often ranging from 300mg to 1000mg CBD concentrations per bottle. (1% to 30% are mainly on the market)
The key to understanding oil dosage is to note how many mg of CBD are typically in 1ml of oil or 1 full dropper.
(If you're new to CBD and already confused, email the GReEN STORE about finding low-concentration products first.)
For example, a 1000mg strength CBD oil in a 30ml bottle would contain approximately 33.3mg of CBD per ml. Luckily, most CBD oil droppers have a memory that makes it easy for consumers to take the right amount.
To microdosage CBD oil, it is important to find out how many drops are in 1ml of oil to determine the content of each drop.
As an example, if the dropper has 24 drops in a 1ml serving and each dropper is 33mg of CBD, that would be approximately 1.4mg of CBD per drop. So instead of taking a full dropper of 33mg of CBD at a time, take 1.4-4.2mg of CBD every 1-2 hours to gradually feel the effects and find the right amount for your body. .
*For beginners, we recommend starting with a dose of CBD of less than 5mg to 10mg. You may notice subtle drowsiness and muscle relaxation. Pay attention to your body and your mind. Do not operate vehicles or heavy machinery as it may cause drowsiness to the point of swallowing.
Recommended oil: organiCBD (30ml/CBD1000mg= 3.3%)
Recommended oil: CBD FX ( 30ml/CBD1500mg= 5%)
Recommended oil: MED TERRA ( 30ml/CBD1000mg= 3.3%)
Microdosing CBD edibles
CBD oil is just one way to take CBD. The dosage can be adjusted, so it is ideal, but there are many people who do not like it because there is no culture of drinking oil in Japan. So there are many other low dose products on the market such as capsules, tablets and even delicious treats like chocolates and gummies!
*Edibles are foods that contain CBD.
Recommended Gummies: CBD FX (5mg CBD per gummy)
Recommended candy: CHILLAXY (approximately 8.5mg of CBD per piece)
Microdosing CBD Vape
CBD Vape uses the mechanism of Vape, a type of electronic cigarette, to electrically heat and vaporize a liquid called "CBD liquid" or "CBD juice" containing CBD with a device. , refers to products and methods of aspiration. By the way, it will be non-nicotine.
Calculating the intake of CBD liquid is difficult, but a rough calculation is possible. A single puff is called a "puff".
1ml of e-liquid can make 200-250 puffs, so if 1ml contains 50mg of CBD, you will be ingesting about 0.23mg of CBD per puff. Assuming a daily CBD intake of 30mg, 130 puffs a day would be about 30mg of CBD inhaled.
* It varies greatly depending on lung capacity etc.
Recommended Liquid: Pharma Hepm (1 0ml/CBD500mg= 5%)
Recommended Cartridge: Pharma Hepm (1ml/CBD400mg= 40%)
Recommended disposable pen: CBD FX (about 1ml/CBD50mg= 5%)
Create a microdosing schedule
Below is an example of how to start a new microdosing schedule, but every body is different, so talk to your body.
When it comes to CBD oil, start with a single micro-serving of CBD every hour. After 1 hour, take 4 drops of CBD oil. After 2 hours, take 5 drops of CBD oil. Continue this process until you begin to feel the effects of CBD oil. Once you've found your sweet spot, calculate the totals to find the correct measure of CBD oil for your body.
[Microdosing Schedule Part.1]
When using 3.3% oil containing 1000mg of CBD in 30ml.
8am – 3 drops of CBD oil
9am – 4 drops of CBD oil
10am – 5 drops of CBD oil
11am – 6 drops of CBD oil
12pm – 7 drops of CBD oil
You now have approximately 35mg of CBD.
You have ingested a full dropper of CBD oil. If you don't feel the effects, keep adding drops to your schedule every hour until you've established a range that works for you.
Another schedule is a daily dose of 30 mg taken in the morning, at lunch, in the middle of the afternoon, at dinner and just before bedtime. Administer approximately 5.2 to 6 mg at a time, divided into 5 doses, and take a total of 30 mg.
[Microdosing Schedule Part.2]
When using 3.3% oil containing 1000mg of CBD in 30ml.
8am – 4 drops of CBD oil
12pm – 4 drops of CBD oil
3pm – 4 drops of CBD oil
7pm – 4 drops of CBD oil
22:00 – 4 drops of CBD oil
A typical daily dose of 30mg in the morning starts to wear off in the afternoon. What about pain, anxiety, epilepsy, and muscle spasms for the rest of the day? The effective life of CBD oil (the period during which the effects of cannabidiol are felt) ranges from 2 to 4 hours depending on the method of consumption.
With this logic, microdosing CBD oil spreads the effects of CBD throughout the day.
*Note that by the end of the day, you're delivering 30mg of CBD to your body, so the final dose doesn't really change. The biggest difference is that the benefits of CBD continue to last.
Sometimes less is more effective
A key concept in microdosing is finding your dose . Optimal CBD microdosing is a nifty way to consume CBD, where users take small doses of CBD several times throughout the day rather than one healthy dose per day.
This low-dose approach has many benefits, including the fact that it more consistently supports the endocannabinoid system (ECS), including less tolerance. For example, many people are now microdosing CBD for chronic pain. Early scientific evidence showed that CBD has potential for general pain management, but is more effective in relieving neuropathic pain.
Similarly, CBD has shown positive results for treating insomnia and other sleep problems. It does this by reducing the pain, anxiety, RBS, and discomfort that contribute to insomnia. And CBD microdosing is under active research as it has the potential to address cancer symptoms and issues related to cancer treatment.
Athletes also microdosage CBD before, during, and after strenuous activity to improve performance, train harder, and recover more efficiently.
A key concept in microdosing is finding your dose . Microdosing is more or less a trial and error process, as CBD effects vary from person to person. Ultimately, the ideal microdose of CBD depends on your body fat percentage, your genetics, your tolerance to CBD, and how you consume it.
We recommend starting with 1mg if possible and increasing to your ideal dose. 1-6mg of CBD per 5kg of body weight is recommended. (Approx. 72mg for 60kg)
The key is to listen carefully to your body and stop increasing the dose once it reaches a plateau and switch to a lower dose. Ultimately, it's up to you to find and choose the microdosing method that's right for you.
