How to calculate the dose of CBD hemp flowers with dry herb vapes?
Asked 3 years ago
I can't smoke regular cannabis due to the anxiety I experience. Therefore, I've been dabbling with CBD products for about 2 years and recently started to try CBD hemp flowers. I ordered 1 gram of OG Kush, Cherry diesel flowers, and a dry herb vape. Does anyone know how to calculate the dosage?

You can find CBD dose calculators online for all forms of cannabis. The chamber capacity of vape pens varies, so the dose depends on the pen, on the temperature setting, the strength of the herb flowers, and the number of hits you inhale.
Set the temperature for low to medium, as the higher the temperature setting the stronger the hit. For first-time users, one or two puffs should be enough to start with. The effect is almost instant, so you'll know if the dose is enough.
If you're sensitive to THC you should be careful, even if the hemp flower package states that it has less than 0.3% THC, you can't rely on that. Not every flower that leaves the farm is tested! To avoid triggering your anxiety, you might want to try CBD oil that has been tested for THC and approved by the FSA.

Cannabis is one of those substances with a biphasic effect. Just like alcohol, if you take one or two bottles, it might make you feel good, but if you take too much, you might start to feel dizzy and sick.
In order not to take an overdose of any CBD product, you should understand the content of that particular CBD product. Understand the amount of CBD in that flower. For example, if there are 15% of CBD in a 1000mg flower, the solution is to multiply 15% by 1000. That will equal 150. It, therefore, means that there is 150mg of CBD in every 1000mg of the flower. There are CBD calculators online that can help you with these doses too.
You should also consider factors like body weight, body makeup, the severity of the condition, amount of THC in the product etc. There is no universal dosage for CBD. A dose that is suitable for the next person might not be suitable for you. It is better to play safe when taking CBD, start with a small amount and then gradually increase its dosage until you get your required result.

In order to answer this question, you first need to understand the difficulty behind doing so due to the fact that all plants grow differently. Without scientifically testing each flower individually, it'll be almost impossible to calculate the exact dose of CBD in that flower.
Another thing to consider is the fact that growers can alter the conditions of their crop to prioritize the production of either cannabidiol (CBD) or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), so two crops from the same strain grown under different conditions will result in different concentrations of either molecule. It is therefore impossible to calculate the CBD dosage of the flowers you ordered unless you had more information.
Something you might want to consider would be CBD oil which, in most circumstances, will have the scientifically calculated concentration on the label. In the meantime, start with small doses of the herbs you have ordered and work your way up through trial and error. Remember that too much CBD can still result in anxiety.
