How much CBD for me?
There’s no such thing as a stupid question. There are thousands of CBD companies out there and they all measure their products differently. This can become very confusing and muddle your experience with CBD. Customers are asking very valid questions. How much CBD should I take? How many milligrams is too many milligrams? What even is a milligram? All of these are wonderful questions and Infinite CBD is here to help you parse through it all.
When ingesting foods such as rice, salmon, or even cake, we sometimes look at the serving size on a package so we know exactly how many carbohydrates, fats, or proteins we are putting into our bodies.
It’s no different when it comes to amounts of CBD. Most, if not all, companies measure CBD in milligrams. A milligram is one thousandth of a gram. For reference, the mass of a pen cap is about 1 gram. In liquid, a gram is roughly equivalent to .035 ounces, which is a pretty small amount, and milligrams are even smaller!
Think about it this way, when you are buying Advil or Tylenol at Walgreens you rarely take a look at the mg, it either comes in Regular Strength or Extra Strength. Most of the time these systems are in place so you can conveniently grab the serving you need. That is how we want you to look at our products. We’ve done the work for you so you know the exact serving size.
How much CBD should I take?
When we rebranded Infinite CBD, we wanted to make it easy and simple for you to serve yourself when it comes to our products. Each one of our products comes in Regular Strength (20mg) or Extra Strength (40mg) so that you can portion your intake accordingly.
While doing internal research we found that the majority of people reacted well to these measurements. At some point, when your body ingests too much CBD it actually outputs it as waste. Meaning after you take a certain amount of CBD, your body doesn’t process it properly and you will not get the intended effects.
We want you to be in control of your CBD journey. With all of our products, you can customize your portion to be in line with your needs. Each Regular Strength gummy is 10mg of cannabinoids (2 gummies = 20mg total), but if you prefer 30mg for your experience, then we recommend you take 3 gummies. If you prefer only 10mg then take just 1 gummy. Same with our tinctures. You can use less pumps and get customized amounts specific to your unique needs.
Can you take “too much” CBD?
Short answer, No. Longer answer, Kinda, while there’s no potential of an “overdose” if you do happen to take an excessive amount, more likely than not, you would take a very long nap and feel sleepy. While not great for your body, there are no reported long term effects of taking too much CBD. On top of that, no one ever needs to take that much CBD because it would be a waste as stated above, because your body is not meant to process that much CBD at once.
Trust your body
You obviously know your body better than anyone else. Some people have sensitivities to certain foods, materials, or even cannabinoids. We recommend that you start with our serving size as our internal data shows it is what most people enjoy. If you need to adjust up or down on portions, that is totally normal. You know the desired effects you are looking for when you consume CBD. There’s nothing wrong with experimenting with the amount of CBD you put into your body, but we do highly recommend not taking too much CBD as again, that would be a waste.
Serving yourself when it comes to our Full Spectrum products can be a little different. You can refer to our last blog about the difference between Full Spectrum and Isolate products. The main consideration with Full Spectrum products is the THC content which provides a psychoactive effect while Isolate contains zero THC and does not.
Our Full Spectrum products also come in serving sizes of Regular Strength (19mg CBD + 1mg THC) and Extra Strength (38mg CBD + 2mg THC). These products do contain THC and trace amounts of other cannabinoids. To put it frankly, most users when using our products are not looking to get “blazed” out of their minds on THC. As this is the fact, our Full Spectrum Products contain only 1mg or 2mg of THC.
For experienced users, we have gummies that are 5mg THC (INSERT DIRECT LINK), or even up to 10mg THC (Coming soon!). If you are new to THC we highly (pun intended) recommend starting with 1mg and working your way up from there.
The addition of THC can make your experience different than just CBD alone, in that you will definitely feel a psychoactive effect if you take over a certain amount of THC.
This again, is going to be different depending on a lot of factors including, age, weight, gender and other factors. We have expertly portioned our Full Spectrum products so that you know the exact amount of THC you are getting and so that the psychoactive effects are not overwhelming. Pro tip – if you did want to feel more psychoactive effects, just take more gummies. Pretty simple!
Learning how many milligrams of CBD to take can be overwhelming. That’s why we are here to help you and get you the best possible portion of CBD that we can. For most of our customers that’s going to be between 20mg – 40mg.
Some may want more, some may want less. Overwhelmingly though, and evidenced through an internal study, this was the best amount to get the effects of CBD that the majority of our customers are looking for when taking our products. Remember, you may take a different amount of CBD than your wife, friend, husband, cousin, mother, or whomever, and that’s totally normal. If you want more portions of a certain serving size, feel free to experiment with it and see how your body reacts.
If you have any questions about serving size or portions of our products we are more than happy to chat with you and talk about your specific needs.
