For instance, someone who weighs 86-150 pounds with mild pain would use 12mg of CBD a day. However, if you weigh more than 240 pounds and are in severe pain, you may need at least 45mg of CBD a day. We recommend experimenting with a small dose first and monitor the effects. If you are not satisfied, increase the daily dosage until you feel a noticeable effect. Do not increase the dosage any further at that point.
As you can probably guess from the name, CBD paste is a putty-like substance that can be consumed orally or used topically. Most manufacturers include organic cocoa butter, coconut oil, and full spectrum CBD distillate in their products. When purchasing CBD paste, make sure the seller clearly outlines the form of extraction.
The amount you use depends entirely on what you need CBD for. Let’s say you have a 5-gram tube that contains 50% CBD. This means you have 2,500mg of CBD to work with. Although there are numerous factors involved, your bodyweight and medical condition are two of the most important.
Make Your Own CBD Paste
Ideally, the company has used supercritical CO2 extraction because it is safe and provides a pure form of CBD. This process involves expensive equipment which uses pressurized CO2 to pull CBD and other cannabinoids from the hemp plant. CO2 acts as a solvent but doesn’t have the same drawbacks as real solvents such as butane.
CBD pastes can have anywhere between 40% and 90% of CBD; the higher, the better obviously. If it is properly packaged, you will find it easy to measure individual doses.
Simply unscrew the lid and squeeze a little bit out. The downside with CBD paste is that it’s very easy to push out too much at once which means you have no option but to use it. A handy tip is to squeeze your desired amount on a fingernail (make sure you wash your hands first) and use the finger to place the paste beneath your tongue. Leave it there for at least 30 seconds. It should dissolve during this time, and then you can swallow it.
All you need to create CBD paste at home is a glass mason jar, coconut oil or vegetable glycerin, and hemp buds, or buds from a high CBD, low THC marijuana strain . Here’s what you need to do:
Many people prefer to use CBD Paste over Oil or Capsules because they have greater control over how much actual CBD they’re getting since, as mentioned before, the CBD is much more concentrated. For example, when taking larger doses than the average person, CBD Paste is much more efficient because:
To take it sublingually, you just take the small amount that you have measured out onto your finger and place it under your tongue, hold it there for about 60 seconds and then swallow it. You may want to wash it down with a drink or some food because of the strong plant matter taste.
How is CBD Paste Different from CBD Oil?
To know how much to take can vary depending on the strength of the paste you have purchased, but most companies will also give dosage instructions on the package. It is always best to start with a very small amount see how it affects you then gradually increase until you have reached a dose you feel comfortable with.
Therefore, yes, you can definitely make your own CBD paste, but it may not be the best idea in the long run or worth the hassle due to the fact that it could be much more complicated than simply buying CBD Paste from a trusted and reputable brand that uses hemp and cannabis that has gone through the proper extraction process and is free of any solvents, heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides.
There are a few ways to extract Cannabidiol, but the ideal way of making CBD paste is by using supercritical CO2 extraction. The reason this is a highly preferred method is because it is safe, and it provides one of the purest forms of CBD available. Additionally, CO2 acts as a solvent but does not have the same consequences as stronger solvents like butane which can leave traces. Making it a safer and cleaner method to use.
When CBD oil is extracted, it is a thick black tar and needs to be diluted/cut with an oil, such as coconut oil, before it can be sold. When a company concentrates, then dilutes an oil, it loses its medicinal value. Many companies brag about how potent their oil is, but this is misinformation
