Knowing how to measure the amount of CBD in the treatment of some disorders can be quite confusing for many doctors and patients using this method.
The correct dosage results in much more efficacy in the treatment of several diseases.
Contrary to common sense, taking a larger amount of CBD than necessary does not increase its effect, in fact, high doses may cause the treatment to be ineffective.
There are several factors to guarantee the correct effects of CBD, where the most important are “Biological Makeup” and the type of disorder to be treated.
Much of the research funded by the National Institute of American Health has been directed to the treatment of epilepsy. The studies pointed out that there was significant potential in the treatment of children using high doses of CBD, where a daily dose greater than 600mg reduced the frequency of seizures by 39%. However, based on information about self-experimentation and unofficial reports, low doses of CBD are more effective in cases such as anxiety, pain, and other disorders.
The influence of the body
According to Dr. Jordan Tishler, MD, Harvard physician and President of InhaleMD and the Association of Cannabis Specialists, patient weight can influence dosages, but what should be taken most into account are the percentages of fat. All cannabinoids are lipophilic, that is, they are attracted to fat, which makes it difficult for them to be absorbed into the bloodstream.
In his theory, in a high intake of CBD, 70% is directed to your fat, and only 30% circulate through the blood. If the patient has a higher percentage of body fat, there will possibly be less absorption, unlike a patient with a lower percentage of fat, who may experience more intense effects from a lower dosage.
The safety zone
Therefore, increasing the doses is no longer effective. In fact, it is necessary to find an average for the doses, what we call the Safety Zone. An ideal amount of CBD is estimated, based on the disorder being treated and the person's biotype. For example, relatively lower doses for anxiety compared to high doses for epilepsy.
Just as the dosage directly influences the efficiency of the treatment, the proportion of CBD: THC is of equal importance for the correct treatment of certain conditions. Consult with your doctor to better understand what is the best proportion for the condition you seek to treat.
More research is always the solution. CBD is increasingly effective in combating several problems today, and knowing the number of people benefiting from it is invigorating. This makes continuous research a priority so that the applied methods become more and more effective and bring more positive results in the field of medicine.
