You’ve probably read about the many health benefits of CBD. If you haven’t, you can read more about them on our earlier blog post here! Now that you know of the benefits of CBD oil and CBD products, how do you establish what the right dose is for you?
Health and nutrition supplements come with a recommended serving size, and so, CBD based nutritional supplements also come with a suggested serving size. However, the US Food and Drug Administration has still not established any formal guidelines for CBD products so there isn’t any official CBD serving size.
So what is the right dose of CBD? The short answer: there isn’t one. CBD dosages don’t work as a one-size-fits-all. There are certain factors to take into consideration when deciding the dose, and there is a certain element of trial and error involved as well.
The first step is to estimate the dose based on a collection of factors: body weight, intensity of condition, concentration of CBD in the product, and form of consumption of CBD.
Individuals with more body mass will require a higher dose of CBD. The table below can serve as a beginner chart to understand what dose to start with.
As seen from the chart, weight in itself isn’t enough to determine what the ideal starting dose should be. If the intensity of the condition is high, then the dosage of CBD needs to be adjusted accordingly.
Finally, the concentration of CBD and the form of consumption are important to note. While insomnia could be treated with an oral supplement, arthritic pain could be treated with a topical cream.
Don’t decide dosage based on someone else’s consumption, even if you are physically the same height and weight. Everyone has a unique body chemistry. It is important to start with a low dose and then gradually build it up to understand what the best dose will be.
In times of doubt, it is best to seek the advice of a physician who will be able to guide you best regarding the dosage of CBD that is right for you.
With all the information about how much CBD to consume, it can still be difficult to effectively calculate how much CBD is actually being consumed. How can you tell how many puffs of a CBD vape to take or just how many drops of CBD tincture to take?
