CBD 101: A User Guide 

CBD dosing can be different for every person. Finding the appropriate CBD amount is a personal, individual process, and as such, there is no “one-size-fits-all” dose.

It’s important to understand how CBD works. Our bodies already produce cannabinoids-known as endocannabinoids, naturally. Additionally, our bodies contain CB1 and CB2 receptors, which the naturally produced cannabinoids bind to as part of the natural process of the human body to regulate sleep, mood, appetite, memory, reproduction, and fertility. This is known as the Endocannabinoid system or ECS. When we see an increase in disorders in these areas then it means our body is not producing enough endocannabinoids. When we take CBD, it reinforces, replenishes, activates, and nourishes our CB1 and CB2 receptors.

Because there is no recommended dose, and every person’s needs are different, this information is intended to serve only as an informational guide – a starting point of reference – and should never be considered medical advice. When it comes to cannabinoids, there is one universal truth to keep in mind: Everyone is different. There are countless variables such as weight, diet, metabolism, genetics, environment, product consistency, and more that make a universally prescribed dosage an impossibility.

It is important to understand that it does not begin to work instantly. For some people, depending on their condition it may take 1-3 days to feel the desired effects while others it may take up to 2-4 weeks. This is also why we suggest using different forms of CBD such as a tincture, oil, and/or gummies. This creates an “entourage effect” to enhance your entire ECS system. Be consistent, patient, and increase your dose slowly if needed.

If you are new to your CBD journey, we suggest you start with a low dose of 10-20mg per day.

After 5 days, if there are no results, then we recommend increasing your dose slowly, every two to three days, and only 5-10mg at a time. If your condition is somewhat serious then it is reasonable to start with higher doses.

For individuals who have light to moderate symptoms, a dosage of 10-20mg of CBD per day can be enough to feel the desired effects and results.

For individuals who are more consistent in using CBD products we suggest 25mg of CBD, taken twice daily. Additionally, you can incrementally increase the amount of CBD you take every 3-4 weeks by 25mg until you attain symptom relief (inversely, decrease by 25mg if symptoms worsen).

Additionally, you might find it useful to record your daily experiences in a notebook so you can accurately narrow in on what works and feels best for you.

Suggested Use

Our CBD tinctures have a “suggested serving size” and the total milligrams of CBD listed on the label. From there, you can determine the amount of CBD you would like to ingest. Simply place the correct quantity of drops under your tongue using the dropper and hold the CBD oil in place for a minimum of 60 seconds. The 60 second hold allows for absorption via the blood vessels underneath your tongue – efficiently bypassing first-pass metabolism. Once 60 seconds has passed, swallow the CBD oil.

With the highest bioavailability of all of our CBD products you have two great flavors to choose from, Mixed Berry and Peppermint.

Here’s the dosage you get from one dropper of each CBD Oil Tincture bottle.

  • 1500mg Mixed Berry & Peppermint Tincture = 50mg CBD per 1ml

How to use:

  1. Shake well before use
  2. Administer 0.5-1ml directly beneath the tongue
  3. Hold for 60 seconds until fully absorbed, before swallowing

The consumption of CBD through gummies also referred to as edibles will result in a more drawn-out effect taking longer to kick in than utilizing our HONA CBD tincture. Edibles are great for those seeking sustained effects and a fun and delicious way to enjoy all the benefits that CBD has to offer.

How to use:

Enjoy up to 2 gummies per day (50mg CBD total) when using our 20ct 500mg jar, or 3 gummies per day (75mg CBD total) when using our 40ct 1000mg jar. CBD gummies can also be mixed and matched with a CBD Oil. Each gummy contains 25mg of CBD per gummy in both our 500mg jar and 1000mg jar that you can choose to take morning, noon, or night.

If you are new to your CBD journey, we suggest you start with a low dose of 10-20mg per day by splitting your gummy in half. After 5 days if there are no results, then we recommend increasing your dose slowly, every two to three days, and only 5-10mg at a time.

Our CBD Pain Relief Gel is a broad-spectrum formulation that consist of 2800mg of CBD per jar. Our potent, hemp-infused, mentholated topical is formulated to provide deep, penetrating relief from persistent muscle tension and pain. Organic, cannabinoid-rich hemp extract works in combination with menthol to soothe and relieve everyday aches and pains. This mighty formula is also enriched with peppermint, spearmint, and rosemary oils to nourish from the outside in, giving your muscles and joints a soothing sensation. We suggest applying the CBD Pain Relief Gel to shoulders – or anywhere you’re feeling some tension – starting with a generous scoopful smoothed liberally onto skin.

How to use:

  1. Test the product on a small area of skin before use
  2. Warm a small scoop of gel between your palms until warm or slightly melted
  3. Massage into any areas that feel sore or tight

Pro Tip: massaging the balm into the skin for 10-15 minutes will allow the CBD to penetrate deeper into the skin.

Important Tips

  • Be consistent in taking it every day.
  • Be patient, do not expect results right away. Give it up to 2-4 weeks to really notice the results.
  • CBD stays in your body for 6-8 hours, so it is better to take it twice a day in gaps.

CBD Regiments

Whether you are new to CBD or have been an active user it is important in maintaining a regimental approach when combining different CBD products. Keep in mind the amount of CBD you choose to consume and make a mental note of how many CBD gummies you’re chewing or how much CBD oil you’re measuring out, so you can make sure the milligram math accurately adds up.

There are no downsides when combining different CBD products, especially when you stick to the same CBD brand. By doing so, you know you’re getting the same quality compound from every CBD product whether it’s from a dropper or gummy. Wrapped in Hearts CBD values executional excellence, and all of our CBD products work well with one another.

Now that you have more of an understanding of CBD oil and CBD Gummies; here are some suggestive tips for taking CBD oils and gummies together. Enjoy trying one of these quick and easy daily routines.

  • Morning: 1ml/50mg of the CBD oil drops.
  • Afternoon/Evening: 1 Gummy 25mg
  • Daily CBD Total: 75mg

Taking CBD gummies will allow you to easily monitor the amount of CBD you are taking each day. If you take 1 gummy morning, noon, and night, you know you’re getting 75mg of CBD. You can quickly increase your CBD intake by adding an additional gummy to your daily regiment or decrease by cutting your intake.

CBD Gummy Use: (25mg per gummy)

  • Morning: 1-2 Gummies
  • Afternoon: 1-2 Gummies
  • Evening: 1-2 Gummies

CBD is a safe and natural compound found in hemp plants and it’s good know that you cannot take too much due to its bioavailability. Bioavailability is the rate at which cannabidiol is absorbed. It plays a key role in delivering the strength and timings you want. Your body will only use what it needs, and the rest goes away.

In addition, you cannot overdose on CBD or obtain a “high” effect from its use. CBD, unlike its psychoactive sibling, THC, does not possess the properties that get you “high.” Unlike THC, which binds to your CB1 and CB2 nerve receptors to create different head and bodily sensations, CBD is binding free. This results in utilizing the positive properties of hemp, and none of the negative properties that can cause intoxicating or psychoactive effects.
