Where to start

For beginners ARC believes the best delivery form is our broad spectrum CBD in either 150mg or 500mg bottle. The use of either the pump or the dropper allows you to easily control your starting doses. We have found this to be the most common way to take CBD.

Low and slow

Regardless of your condition or desired effect, “start low and go slow”. Using the pump or the dropper start out with a 1-2mg dose twice a day and use the same dosing schedule for several days. If you see no effect, increase it to 3-4mg. Continue that method until you reach the therapeutic effect which can take up to 3 weeks. Once you find your right dose, try taking it once a day before bedtime. If you are using it to treat a chronic condition, you may take it twice a day or more often if needed.

Everyone is different

Keep in mind the effective dose is highly individualized due to age, size, metabolism, health status, etc. That’s the reason not everyone will react the same or get the same therapeutic effects with the same dose. In essence, the goal is to administer consistent, measurable doses of CBD and observe the effects.

Multi product user

Some customers find that using multiple forms of CBD products give them the best results for their particular needs. For example, taking broad spectrum CBD sublingual drops in addition to applying a broad spectrum CBD topical salve to a sprained or sore muscle is a particularly effective method to address inflammation.

Consult a medical professional

Who is better to go through this journey of wellness than with your doctor or pharmacist? With all of the new studies of cannabidiol’s health benefits, more healthcare providers are becoming receptive to the idea. While it is safe to use and has no side affects, it can interfere with the metabolism of some medications. Speak with your doctor or pharmacist before starting one of ARC’s product.
