CBD Dosing Guide – How Much CBD Should You Take?

One of the most common questions that we receive for inexperienced CBD users is: “How much CBD should I take and how often?” It is a great question and the answer is that it depends on several factors. Some CBD products for purchase come with a recommended dosage guide, but the truth is that CBD dosages depend on factors such as body weight, personal body chemistry, your age, and other health conditions you may have. Given that CBD is not yet regulated by the FDA, no official Dosage Guidelines have been issues but there are certainly safe parameters to start with.

CBD Dosage Guide: When determining your ideal CBD Dosage, your goal is to find the lowest dose that provides the benefits you need with few or no side affects. Our friends at cbdoil.org created a very helpful chart that calculates 1 – 6mg per 10 pounds of body weight, and the recommended dosage.

“Again, these are just general guidelines. Some people need significantly more, while others need significantly less. For example, if you are living with extreme chronic pain, you will likely require a higher dose on a daily basis than someone who takes CBD occasionally to cope with situational anxiety.” Head over toΒ CBDoil.org to continue reading more.
