What’s The Right Dose Of CBD?

CBD is a natural plant medicine, therefore, its safe to consume as long as it’s clean and contains no toxins. However, when it comes to the daily recommended dosage, its understandable that people may need some guidance. We’ve put together this simple dosage guide which follows the up-tiltration method. 

There are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration when finding the perfect dosage of CBD for you. Some of the factors that play an important part in your experience using CBD are:

  • Your medical condition or problem
  • How intense your problem is
  • Metabolism
  • How you respond to CBD
  • Body Weight
  • Sensitivity to cannabis
  • Your personal body chemistry (this includes any other medications you may be taking)

We recommend the step-up approach where you gradually increase the dose until the most desired results are reached. The term used is “Titration.” This is a term borrowed from chemistry that means taking small steps over time in order to allow for adjustment slowly. By using this method, you’re tailoring the amount of the oil to fit your needs. Every person is different and everyone’s reaction to CBD is different. 

0.5mg to 20mg of CBD per dose per day (CBD/dose/day) A microdose is recommended for sleep, headache, mood disorders, nausea, PTSD, stress and metabolic disorders, and daily dietary supplements.

10mg to 100mg of CBD/dose/day. Standard doses are used for Pain, Inflammation, autoimmune disorders, Lyme disease, Anxiety, Depression, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Autism, IBS, Arthritis, and weight loss. 

Macro doses are at the high range between 50mg-800mg of CBD/dose/day. This is for cancer, epilepsy, seizures, liver disease, and serious life-threatening conditions. 

It’s important to remember that there is not a one size fits all when it comes to CBD dosage. The dosage amount varies from individual to individual depending on a number of factors mentioned earlier.

  • Don’t take too much CBD. It’s important to note that in cannabis therapy often times “less is more” If you are not getting the desired results from a higher dose than you should consider lowering your dose instead of increasing it. This method has helped many patients find their “sweet spot” or the best dose to treat their particular condition for that period of time. Remember you may need to adjust your “sweet spot” over a certain period of time. Monitor the results and adjust the dosage as necessary.
  • If you are already taking some other prescription medication, be aware of possible side effects and drug interactions. You should discuss this with your health care provider.
