Stress has become a pervasive issue in today's fast-paced world, leading many individuals to search for natural ways to help combat the frazzled nerves that often accompany a busy lifestyle.
In this endeavor to find safe and healthy options to aid in stress management, plant compounds like CBD and ashwagandha have taken center stage.
In this blog, we will discuss how to determine the best CBD dosage for you, calculate the appropriate dosage, different methods of taking CBD, the possibility of taking too much CBD, and the potential benefits of combining CBD with Ashwagandha for stress relief.
When it comes to CBD dosage, it's important to start low and gradually increase until you find the dosage that works best for you.
Every individual is unique, and factors such as weight and metabolism can influence the optimal dosage. Tracking your CBD intake and how it makes you feel is also crucial in finding the right balance.
At NextEvo Naturals, our successful customers have reported that a maximum daily dosage of 120mg has been effective in helping to ease frazzled nerves. However, it's important to note that individual experiences may vary, and consulting with a healthcare professional is always recommended before starting a CBD regimen.
How Much Ashwagandha Should I Take Per Day?
The recommended dosage of ashwagandha for combatting stress can vary depending on individual factors, such as age, overall health, and the specific product being used. Our Stress CBD Complex contains 125mg of ashwagandha per daily dose.
When taking an ashwagandha supplement, it is important to follow the specific dosage instructions provided by the manufacturer of the supplement you are using. Also, it can take time for the effects of ashwagandha to manifest, so it's necessary to take it consistently for a few weeks to notice the benefits.
Additionally, be aware that ashwagandha may interact with certain medications, so it is important to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new supplements.
To calculate the appropriate CBD dosage, a general guideline is to start with 1-6 mg of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you might start with a dosage range of 15-90 mg of CBD.
It's best to increase the dose incrementally by 5-10 mg at a time until you notice the desired effects. Keeping a journal to track your dosage and its effects can be immensely helpful in finding the optimal CBD dosage for stress relief.
When it comes to taking CBD, there are several methods to choose from.
While oil tinctures have been popular, it's worth noting that oil-based CBD may not absorb well in the body. At NextEvo Naturals, we highly recommend opting for water-soluble CBD to ensure maximum impact.
Other methods of taking CBD include capsules, gummies, and dissolvable powders, which are easy to swallow but may take longer for the effects to kick in as CBD has to pass through the digestive system. Taking these forms of CBD with food can allow for better, and faster absorption.
Finally, topicals such as CBD lotions can be applied to targeted areas for localized relief.
Can You Take Too Much CBD?
CBD is generally considered and safe, at the doses recommended. However, some individuals may experience side effects such as drowsiness, diarrhea, or fatigue.
It's important to monitor for any interactions with medications you may be taking and always consult with your healthcare professional before starting a CBD regimen, especially if you have any pre-existing health conditions.
Combining CBD with Ashwagandha may offer additional benefits when it comes to managing stress. Let’s examine the benefits of both compounds in a bit more detail.
First, CBD has been found to reduce feelings of stress. This could be due to the fact that CBD interacts with serotonin receptors in the brain, which play a role in regulating mood and stress levels. While more research is still needed, the initial findings regarding the combination of CBD and Ashwagandha for stress are promising.
At NextEvo Naturals, we are committed to providing you with the highest quality CBD products to support your stress management journey.
Our products undergo rigorous testing four times for potency and quality before leaving our facility, ensuring you receive reliable and effective solutions. We also offer extra strength products to cater to varying needs.
Additionally, we strive to create products that work with your body’s chemistry so that you can get the most impact from our products. With that in mind, we created our proprietary SmartSorb™ Technology which ensures our CBD is water-soluble, providing 4X better absorption compared to other oil-based CBD products.
With our dedication to quality sourcing and ingredients, we aim to be your trusted partner in stress management. When it comes to CBD and Ashwagandha, NextEvo Naturals is here to help you find the right balance for your well-being.
Additionally, CBD has been found to promote relaxation and better sleep, and lower cortisol levels, which are crucial for managing stress levels.
Then there’s ashwagandha, an adaptogenic herb known for its stress-relieving properties. Studies have shown ashwagandha may help minimize stress levels by potentially reducing cortisol levels and enhancing the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin, which can have a positive impact on mood.
Furthermore, ashwagandha may help promote relaxation and improve sleep quality, which can be beneficial for managing stress.
At NextEvo Naturals, we recognize the potential synergy between CBD and ashwagandha and offer high-quality products that harness the power of both.
