The optimal dose of CBD depends on your weight and the potency of the oil you’re using.
The most common dose of CBD is 20 – 40 mg per dose. Some people take much less (as low as 1 mg), others take much higher (up to 100 mg).
Depending on the strength of the product you’re using, this could be anywhere from a few drops to several millilitres of oil. It could also involve anywhere from 1 – 5 capsules or gummies per dose.
The ideal dose of CBD is different for everybody and it’s common for two people with identical weight to respond very differently to the same dose of CBD. One person may find the ideal dose for them is 30 mg of CBD, while the other responds better to just 10 mg.
The ideal dose of CBD for you depends on a variety of factors, including:
- Your size and weight
- The severity of the condition you’re treating
- Your tolerance to CBD
- Your individual body chemistry
- The potency of the CBD products you’re using
The best way to find the right dose for your body is to start with a very low dose (2 mg, for example) and increasing by 2-5mg per dose until you find what works best for you.
Understanding how much CBD is in the product will set you on the right track to deciding the right dosage. As with most substances, the higher your body mass (weight), the higher the dose you will require.
However, everybody is different and what works for you won’t necessarily work for the next person – even if they’re of similar size and weight and, as with a lot of conventional medicines, it can take a little bit of trial and error to figure out the dosage that is right for you.
We are all made up differently, therefore our body chemistry and the severity of the condition that you are trying to treat can also be contributing factors and, as a result, a degree of trial and error to find what works for you is required.
Our products differ in strength, ranging from 1000mg to the strongest at 3000mg. If you are just starting out with CBD, we would recommend the 1000mg strength and putting 2-3 drops under the tongue morning and night. From there, you can start to increase gradually until you reach a point where you feel the best results.
