Microdosing CBD: Finding Your Daily Dose - Lunchbox Alchemy CBD

Microdosing CBD: Finding Your Daily Dose

Finding your perfect dose is a process that is all your own - so follow your instincts and what works for you! Dosing varies depending on weight, height, body type, and how your body processes CBD.  For those that are using Full-Spectrum Hemp Extract, which contains .3% or less THC, then microdosing might interest you, especially if you are sensitive to any level of THC.  What is microdosing? Microdosing is a relatively new term and is previously attributed to mind-altering drugs like LSD in the 1970s. There has been a resurgence in microdosing lately and now people are trying it out with CBD products.  It really means what it sounds like - taking a smaller amount of a substance to feel a sense of overall well being rather than a “high.” It’s a low-dose technique that intends to spread the effects out over the course of a day rather than taking one large dose at once. Think of it as a gradual downgrade rather than jumping off a cliff.  Microdosing might work for you if:  You are not a long time CBD or THC user, as you may feel the effects more than if you have built up a tolerance to either substance.  You want a lesser-effect at one time.  You want to “test the waters” of CBD and are not sure what dose to start at. This is helpful because you can do your own science experiment over a weekend or day off to find the dose that works for you.  With CBD, you might be interested in microdosing if you are using CBD in conjunction with other medications. Always ask your doctor if CBD or THC will interact with any medications.  How to microdose CBD:  For new or occasional CBD users interested in microdosing, start off with a level of CBD that is lower than you would normally consider taking and then work your way up from there. A typical microdose is anywhere from 5-10 milligrams, so start where you are comfortable on that spectrum. Then decide in what increments you want to experiment to level up or level down your dose. Perhaps 1-5 milligrams? It’s up to you and your body, tolerance, and what other medications you are on. Wait 30-90 minutes to take another dose.  Jot down your thoughts and how you feel (about CBD or life in general) in a journal or note on your phone. At the end of your experiment look over your notes to see what your optimal dose is and how often dosing should happen to keep you on track. Be sure to include those extra details like if you’ve had anything to eat recently if you are also consuming alcohol if you’re in-laws are in town, you know, anything pertinent.  If you would classify your CBD status as “experienced”, try breaking up your normal dose into say, 5 or 6 smaller doses throughout the day and see if you feel a difference.  Gummy or Tincture for microdosing?  While you can microdose with either a gummy or a tincture, tinctures are a more popular form to microdose with just because you can measure it down to the drop. Gummies, or any form of CBD that you ingest, will tend to have a longer, more prolonged effect than a tincture, so keep that in mind also.  Choose a product for microdosing that would work for you on a regular basis, is easy for you to transport, and that you can use as needed either at home or out and about.  Our 20mg Single-Dose Gummy, or Squib 100, is the perfect product from Lunchbox Alchemy to divide up into smaller doses. A serrated or sharp kitchen knife works well for cutting the Gummy up as small as you need it.  To try it with a tincture, start out with a few (1-2) drops of the 500 mg Full-Spectrum Hemp Extract and then increase as desired. If you are an experienced CBD user, you may want to jump into microdosing with our 1000 mg Full-Spectrum Hemp Extract.  While you could try microdosing with a Broad-Spectrum product, Full-Spectrum CBD products work best because the amount of THC is less than 0.3% (ensuring it is non-psychoactive) yet it will still introduce the entourage effect.  Ready to jump in?

Cannabinoids are in your pepper shaker… - Lunchbox Alchemy CBD
Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids are in your pepper shaker…

Diving into the world of cannabinoids, there’s more than meets the eye.  Where do we get cannabinoids from - and how do they affect our ECS?  As you may know, your body has a whole system for processing cannabinoids. But did you know that there are distinct types of cannabinoids? And some you produce all on your own? What are they, and do they interact with our bodies in the same ways as our own, internally produced, chemicals? Jump on the Magic School Bus as we explore the microscopic life of plants!   Endocannabinoids:  Your body produces its own internal cannabinoids (called endocannabinoids) which your Endocannabinoid System processes. Endocannabinoids are present in our whole body in cell membranes. Even if you’ve never tried cannabis in any form, your body still has endocannabinoids present! Crazy, right? Endocannabinoids create all kinds of cellular reactions in our bodies, including reducing anxiety, combating certain diseases, and managing various conditions.  Sources of Endocannabinoids Your bod. That’s it! However, phytocannabinoids can enhance, and act like, our bodies own endocannabinoids.    Phytocannabinoids:  Can you guess where phytocannabinoids come from? Hint: Phyto means plants! These cannabinoids are found naturally occurring in the living plant life all around us, and sometimes even on our dinner table. When we are talking about cannabinoids, the first plant many of us name is cannabis. But you might be surprised to know that cannabis is NOT the only source of cannabinoids. In fact, some other plants contain phytocannabinoids, and many of these can also have medicinal effects and have been used as such for hundreds of years.  If you do consume cannabis or other plants that contain phytocannabinoids, these molecules bind with your ECS receptors and stimulate, support, and nourish your ECS as well. Many people aim to create similar response in their bodies as our own Endocannabinoids by consuming plants that stimulate the ECS.  Research has found that other plants contain CBD - the non-psychoactive compound in cannabis - and other phytocannabinoids. These cannabinoid-like compounds are called cannabimimetics. Cannabimimetics also work with our ECS and can affect our bodies and biological processes. Sources of Phytocannabinoids:  Cannabis - Contains cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Flax Seeds - Similar compounds to CBD that act as antioxidants Echinacea - Immune booster, and has been used by humans since the 18th century.  Cacao - Yes, the ever-favorite superfood, this one contains mood-boosting properties and helps memory, appetite and pain perception. Maca - Gives your own endocannabinoids, as well as your mood, a boost! Kava - Simulates THC (it binds to the same receptor in your ECS as the THC from cannabis), and acts as a sedative. Rosemary - Contains BCP (beta-caryophyllene) which gives the plant it’s peppery flavor. It also helps with depression, anxiety, and ulcers.  Black Pepper - WIth a large amount of the same terpene that gives some marijuana strains that cracked black pepper smell, it also contains anti-inflammatory properties.    Synthetic Cannabinoids:  As you may have guessed from the name, synthetic cannabinoids are human-made. These can be then smoked, vaped, or sold as other drugs. Epidiolex, the first cannabis-derived drug that was approved by the FDA, is an example of a synthetic cannabinoid that uses CBD, not THC as the active drug. This drug is used to treat epilepsy.  However, there are also other lab-made synthetic cannabinoids that are being made into products for recreational use and are sometimes labeled as synthetic marijuana or “fake-weed”. While some may market them as safe, they are highly unpredictable and unregulated.  Sources of Synthetic Cannabinoids:  Drugs prescribed for specific conditions such as Epidiolex® Other synthetics include those that can be smoked or vaped such as brands like K2, Spice, Joker, Black Mamba, Kush, and Kronic.    Get your daily dose of phytocannabinoids: available now in our shop!  Now that you know all about the types of cannabinoids and where they come from, why not stock up on naturally occurring, plant-based goodness?  Our Full-Spectrum Hemp Extract CBD Oil contains all-natural phytocannabinoids, as well as a hint of THC, but less than .3% by volume. Available in 1-ounce bottles in 250mg, 500mg or 1000mg strength. If you want to completely avoid THC, then you will love our Broad-Spectrum Hemp Extract CBD Oil which contains zero THC, but still delivers all the good stuff you want (cannabinoids and terpenes) that are naturally found in the hemp plant. It’s a perfect choice for those who can not have any THC in their system, whether for medical, personal, or legal reasons. Our Broad-Spectrum tincture also comes in 1-ounce bottles and is available in a 1000mg strength. Lunchbox Alchemy also offers edible CBD Gummies! Lunchbox Alchemy CBD Gummies are infused with Full-Spectrum extract derived from Oregon-grown hemp and come in delicious flavors like pineapple, concord grape, green apple, cherry, and blue raspberry.

Terpenes: The best smelling secret ingredient in your CBD

As we look deeper at the Cannabis plant, we know that there are all these phytocannabinoids within the plant that affect us, like CBD and THC as well as others. The endocannabinoid system is what interacts with cannabinoids – as well as makes our own endocannabinoids (didn’t know that? Get caught up here).

Where Is My Endocannabinoid System (ECS)? Find Out Here!

The Endocannabinoid System, or ECS, is a body system that you may not have heard much about until now. It certainly wasn’t a part of our biology classes in school while learning rhymes about cells to help us study for midterms. And yet, the ECS is a fundamental part of your health and wellbeing as any of these other systems.
