For people new to CBD, ﬁnding the right dose can be diﬃcult as it is a very personalised process. CBD dosing can vary depending on factors like weight, age, the condition you’re treating, strength of the oil you’re using and more.
Below we have developed a CBD Dosage Guide & Calculator to help you maximise the full potential of CBD’s beneﬁts.
How Do You Take Your CBD?
CBD Is A Personalised Process
The optimal dose of CBD is diﬀerent for everybody. It is dependent on a variety of factors, including:
- Type of condition you’re treating
- Severity of symptoms you’re experiencing
- Your tolerance to CBD
- Your genetics and body chemistry
- The strength of the CBD product you’re
When starting out begin with a small amount of CBD, ideally ~2-5mg per dose, 2-3x per day and gradually increase from there until you start to feel it take eﬀect. See the diagram below to help you with the process.
Select Application Method (Drops, Capsules, Sprays etc.)
Start low with ~2-5mg per day (2-3x per day)
Gradually increase dosage until you can feel it take eﬀect
Experience the beneﬁts of CBD!
Some important things to consider when using CBD are:
- It is important to be consistent when taking CBD by using it on a daily basis
- If no eﬀect is still taking place after increasing the dosage then try changing your application method
- CBD has not been found to have a lethal dosage limit. It has been well tolerated across a range of dosages with one study having patients take 1500mg per day.
- CBD is biphasic meaning it has opposite eﬀects depending on your dosage strength. For example, a lower strength can create an alert eﬀect while a higher strength can make you more relaxed.
CBD Dosage Chart
Although CBD is incredibly personalised there is a general rule of thumb that can be used to determine how much CBD you should based on your weight and the strength of eﬀects you’re looking for.
