How to Dose CBD

The big CBD question. 

Every once in awhile, someone leaves a review on the Eables™ Facebook Page or sends a personal note or DM to let me know about their experience. Nothing brightens my day more than to hear how Eables™ is making a difference.

I know that there are a few of you that have reached out personally, and I’m working with to help you find a dose that works for you, and that’s what I wanted to talk about today.

Eables CBD How to use CBD

CBD is not an OTC medicine!

When my wife first began using Eables™ to manage her chronic migraines she found herself in the wrong mindset. She had been cycling through OTC pain relievers and frequently found herself losing track of how much she’d taken and with what frequency.

CBD is totally different. 

Over-the-counter medication has us locked into a routine of reactive pain management.  Experience pain – take the maximum dose – take more after a few hours – repeat and hope it eventually stops. What madness! When tackling chronic pain/migraines, CBD works best when used every day.

“Migraine, fibromyalgia, [irritable bowel syndrome] and related conditions display common clinical, biochemical and pathophysiological patterns that suggests an underlying clinical endocannabinoid deficiency that may be suitably treated with cannabinoid medicines,” Russo concluded in his research review. – A more in depth article with a link to study is available here.

Long story short, the theory is that research into chronic pain conditions suggests there can actually be an endocannabinoid deficiency! It is absolutely essential to take CBD daily, and move your dose as much as is necessary. I know some people that dose in the evening, some in the morning, and so on.

My wife has found that a full dropper of the 1000mg in the morning works best to keep her migraines manageable from day to day. When she does feel a migraine coming on she’ll take an additional full dropper, and/or massage some of the oil into her neck/shoulders.

Let’s get topical!

Many consumers are finding that a higher concentration of CBD oil (1000mg plus) to be the perfect amount to apply topically to areas of intense pain/inflammation. It’s important to find a CBD oil that is paired with a carrier oil that is friendly to the skin. That’s why any companies opt for MCT Coconut oil.

Try to think of CBD outside of the traditional over-the-counter mindset: you’re free from hourly dosing and the limits of over-the-counter drugs, because CBD can only HELP.

As always, feel free to reach out with questions.

Stay well. ?

They’re all the same

8 years ago, I remember being so upset that Obama had won an election. I was young and impressionable with a head full of GOP lies. The nature of things now is that if one uses the phrase “GOP lies” every liberally minded individual reading silently agrees, and thinks I’m on their side. That I would’ve voted for Hillary, or mourn the loss of President Obama on Friday. The reality is, I don’t. After 8 years of Obama (strangely lacking in all the socialist things I was told would happen under him) I can confidently say he’s just been a bad President. All of that aside, I’m not looking forward to a Trump presidency either. I did not vote for him, and campaigned pretty hard against him. If you count endless sharing of Libertarian minded thoughts on Facebook “campaigning” that is. In the end, the L party made a terrible choice this election, but I’ll discuss that more later.

Trump just rubs me the wrong way for a whole host of reasons; beginning with his lack of experience, and ending with his inability to hide his self aggrandizing refusal to accept facts about himself. (That he’s inexperienced, that he isn’t worth what he says, etc) Honestly Trump would be a much more compelling character in the rap game, where boasting about one’s accomplishments and money is part of the whole shtick.

As a millennial, (the perspective from which these columns originate) I’ve done a lot of research in the last few years and I can safely say that I’m in the same spot that a lot of people much older are when it comes to politics and particularly presidential politics. I’m convinced it’s all a game. The more focus there is on the hoards of social issues that ironically enough dominate social media 24/7, the less focus there is on the political policies and a genuine concern for what’s best for all Americans. Before you insist I don’t know what I’m talking about; Obama was more than kind enough to prove it for me just days before he gives the office to Trump. He just expanded the NSA’s ability to share vast amounts of warrantless data among many intelligence agencies. Why would he do something like this hours away from handing the keys to Trump if they really believed everything about him they’ve said in the past weeks and months? This isn’t an argument for Trump either, this is an argument against these types of programs to begin with, and an argument for the liberty of the American people. But, like I said earlier, that doesn’t matter anymore. The people in power only care about perpetuating that power. I firmly believe this as a man in my late twenties. Congratulations, machine. You broke a man pretty quickly.
