CBD Daily Dosage Recommendations for Beginners
Before we dive into dosage suggestions, the biggest factor to take away from this article is realizing everyone is different. There are so many considerations at play that make it impossible to have a “one size fits all” mindset about CBD consumption.
Reasons why CBD dose amounts vary per individual:
- Specific health problems and the intensity of the condition
- Food and prescription intake
- Sensitivity to cannabinoids
Fortunately, cannabinoids have never caused any known fatal overdose because the receptors aren’t located in the brain. On a rare occasion, a side effect from taking a large dose could include drowsiness, hyperactivity, increased heart rate, or a stomach ache. Keep in mind, CBD could produce different symptoms if taken with steroids, antibiotics, or anesthetics.
For a newcomer, it’s better to start with a low dosage like 16-20mg per day and work your way up (to avoid any of the potential symptoms stated above).
Are you healthy, active, and show no sign of ailments or pain? If so, you might think you don’t need to add CBD to your regimen. But we encourage even our healthiest clients to take CBD regularly for the following reasons:
- CBD promotes general well-being throughout the body
- CBD anti-cancer properties might prevent future health concerns
Dosage Guidelines for Beginners
The titration method is the best way to start taking CBD for the first time. Titration means beginning with a small dose and slowly increasing the intake until desired results are achieved (such as sleeping better or feeling less anxious). We recommend taking small doses of our 500mg CBD Oil each day for about four days before working up to a bigger dose.
Larger doses might sound more ideal, but lower doses can be just as beneficial. For example, low doses tend to be more stimulating, and large doses tend to be more sedative. Depending on what you’re looking for, low doses might be the better option for you. Once you get acclimated, you can take bigger doses of the same bottle, or use an extra strength 1500mg CBD oil to get stronger results in each drop.
Our bottles are available in the following options:
500mg bottle = 17mg per 1ml dose
1000mg bottle = 33mg per 1ml dose
1500mg bottle = 50mg per 1ml dose
To start, take no more than 40mg for a few days (40mg if you’re in a lot of pain). This equals about two full droppers of the 500mg bottle. If you aren’t in a lot of pain, take a total of one dropper intermittently throughout the day.
Titration helps cannabinoids slowly build up in fat tissues where they are stored. If you don’t take CBD for a few days or weeks, the body will use the supply stored in these cells until the endocannabinoid system runs out and “resets.” For this reason, if you ever take a break from CBD use, start back with lower doses and build your way up again.
The best way to approach CBD is with an open mind and willingness to try different dosages, formulas, and products. If you aren’t feeling any effects after a week of consuming CBD oil at a certain dosage amount, then increase your take. If after a month CBD oil still doesn’t seem to assess pain symptoms, try a CBD topical or smokable hemp flower instead.
Moral of the story, don’t quit on CBD! You might discover a huge difference in your health within a couple weeks, or it might take you a few months to figure out the right routine for you.
