CBD Dosage:  How Much Should I Take?

Whether you’re a first-time user or an experienced user,understanding how CBD works and how to use it can be somewhat confusing, especially since the industry is so new. Every day, we answer many questions from our readers, but one of the most frequently asked by first-time users and experienced users alike is: What is the best dosage?

While there are tons of articles about the benefits of CBD, there are few about properly dosing CBD and because of this, consumers are blindly estimating their dosages based on recommendations from companies they buy their CBD from or even worse… friends who are uncertified and claim to be “experts” simply because they use CBD.

“Take one dropper of CBD per day,” is one of the most common dosage recommendations we hear. While this can definitely be a dosage, there’s no way to tell if its the right dosage for the given individual as it doesn’t take into account important factors such as:

The concentration of CBD

The weight of the individual

The individual’s body chemistry

The severity of the condition being treated

With that being said, there isn’t a “one size fits all” dosage, and there will be some trial and error while gauging your proper dosage.

As our body’s physiology changes, so do the receptors in our endocannabinoid system, which are directly responsible for interactions with CBD. As a result, optimal CBD dosages will shift throughout an individuals lifetime.
