What does CBD and alcohol have in common?

How is CBD a biphasic molecule?

Have you ever wondered how CBD can help with sleep but at the same time give you energy and help you focus? How is it that one substance can do such opposite things? It’s because CBD is a biphasic substance, which means it has a different effect at different dosages!

So, if you take a small amount of CBD, it will wake you up, give you energy, and help you focus on the task at hand. BUT if you take a much larger dosage then it will calm down your nervous system and help you go to sleep.

 

Is alcohol biphasic?

Another substance that has a biphasic effect is alcohol! One glass of wine will stimulate and uplift you but if you have too many then it will cause sedation and drowsiness. In order words, the effects of alcohol also are dose-dependent and it has a biphasic effect just like CBD oil.

 

How much CBD to take for energy and focus?

CBD in small dosages can work as a stimulant and give you a boost of energy like caffeine. If you want to replace your morning coffee with something more natural that doesn’t cause constipation or jitters, then incorporate it into your morning routine like me! Small doses of CBD such as 10-20mg of CBD can help to wake you up, and give you a boost of energy, and focus. It’s great to take in the morning before starting your workday or before starting a task that requires increased focus. It will help boost your productivity and make you feel accomplished at the end of the day! Your endocannabinoid system works to find homeostasis (balance) with your mood and energy level, and you can help it get there with the right dosage. So start at 10mg every morning but slowly increase by 5mg every 3 days until you find your sweet spot! 

 

What’s the best way to take CBD in the morning? 

Dr. Peace Lily has various formulations of CBD which can be taken orally. My favorite ways to take in the morning are the CBD gummies (https://www.drpeacelily.com/product/cbd-gummies-vegan/) or the 500mg tincture. The 500mg tincture can be added to your morning tea, smooth, or taken directly under the tongue. 

 

How do you take a CBD tincture?

The best way to take a CBD tincture is by measuring out how many milligrams you want to take and then placing the oil under your tongue. Leave it under your tongue for 1-2 minutes and then swallow. By leaving it under your tongue, you will get the best absorption and fast onset of action since there are a lot of blood vessels and receptors under our tongue to absorb the CBD directly into our blood and avoid our GI tract where most of the CBD will be destroyed by our stomach acid. 

 

How much CBD to take at night to get a better night’s sleep?

CBD will need to be taken at a larger dosage for sleep help. We recommend taking double or triple your morning dosage. So, if you typically take 20mg of CBD during the day then start off by taking 40mg at night and then slowly increase the increment by 10mg every 3 nights. Don’t be afraid of taking a higher mg if you are still having a hard time sleeping. It’s okay to take as much as 100mg every night!
