When you start exploring the world of Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil as part of your wellness routine, one of the most important questions you’ll have is: How much hemp oil is right for me? The simple answer is that it’s not one-size-fits-all because our bodies respond to hemp oil differently, and there are a wide variety of reasons that people use it. But don’t worry, we’re here to help you figure out the right amount of hemp oil for your body.
First Rule: Understand the Hemp Oil Serving Size Label
Most companies offer different potency levels for the same style of product. For example, Synchronicity tinctures come in bottles of 500 mg or 1000 mg, which means that servings from these bottles will vary in strength. So when purchasing, be mindful of which potency you’re selecting as they can vary greatly in price. Also, keep in mind that not all hemp oils are made the same. High-quality hemp oils, like the whole-plant ones from Synchronicity, are tested for purity and potency so you know you’re getting accurate results. Some CBD companies claim high quality and potency, but without proper testing, these claims may be inaccurate.
Second Rule: Determine What You Are Addressing with Hemp Oil
This might sound obvious, but before you start taking hemp oil, know what you are taking it for. Since hemp oil can support everything from poor sleep to anxiety to stress, it’s important to identify why you are taking it so you can determine which dose level is best for you. We suggest listing and prioritizing your health concerns and exploring how hemp oil makes a difference with the concerns at the top of your list. It’s important to know that the FDA regulates all herbal remedies, which can limit a company’s ability to describe benefits and recommend dosages. As of right now, the FDA has not provided Recommended Daily Intakes or Daily Values for daily hemp oil use. That’s why it’s important to focus on what you want to address and listen to your body as it responds to the treatment.
Third Rule: Start Small with Your Hemp Oil Dosage
Even though serving sizes are called out on the label, don’t think that you have to start with a full serving. It’s actually better to start with a lower amount to see how your body responds to the hemp oil. Tinctures offer an ideal way to experiment with dosage because the dropper is clearly labeled with calibrated measurements.
When starting out, make sure to take the exact same amount of hemp oil a couple times a day. From there you can decide if you want to increase or decrease your dosage to get the ideal results for your body. As you discover your sweet spot in terms of dosage, you may find that some days you need a little more and some days a little less. That’s the beauty of Synchronicity and why it is better than other hemp oils—it aligns with your body’s ever-changing chemistry.
Fourth Rule: Give It Time
As you start dialing in which hemp oil dosage works for you, be sure to notice how quickly it takes effect with your body. Some people can start to feel the effects of hemp oil in a few minutes. For others, it can take a little more time. So before you think it’s not working and that you should take more, make sure you allow a few hours for your body to react.
What Others Are Asking About Hemp Oil Dosage and Serving Size
The great thing about this is that millions of other people have the same questions you do. Here are answers to some commonly asked questions we get when people start adding Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil to their wellness routines.
Can I take too much?
The simple answer is: No. Hemp oil is considered non-toxic and acceptable for humans in high amounts. But because all bodies react differently, it is possible to take a dosage that is too strong for you. That does not mean it will harm you. This is why it is important to start with a small dose and work your way up. Do not assume that if you are a larger person (like a male who is 6’5″ and weighs 225 lbs.) that you need more right away.
Can I use hemp oil daily?
Yes! Think of Synchronicity as part of your regular wellness routine. Just like you take vitamins or supplements on a regular basis, Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil is a natural supplement designed to help you achieve balance and a better quality of life.
Can I give hemp oil to my kids?
It is true that hemp oil might be safe for all ages, but we strongly recommend you contact your pediatrician or physician to determine if hemp oil is right for your child and how to determine a dosage.
Can I give hemp oil to my pets?
Many people purchase hemp oil for their pets to help with aging joints or anxiety brought on by separation or noise. Our recommendation is 1 mg for every 10 lbs. of weight for dogs, 1 mg for every 20 lbs. of weight for cats, and just 5 mg for every 1,000 lbs. of weight for horses. Start with two servings a day and closely monitor the animal.
Should I take Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil or CBD?
It’s very important to know the difference between Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil and CBD, as some companies use them interchangeably, but they are very different. CBD is just one of the hundred nutrients found in the hemp plant. To make CBD, many companies use harsh CO2 processes to isolate it, which can decrease the potency of the nutrients. On the other hand, Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil is made from the entire hemp plant, so you receive all the nutrients including CBD, but without the harsh extraction process. Basically, it’s better for your body. Synchronicity products are 100% Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil and go a step further to only use our own sustainably-farmed proprietary hemp plants.
