No One Size Fits All Approach
Whether you're a first-time user or an experienced user, understanding how CBD is made and how to use it can be somewhat confusing, especially since the industry is so new. Every day, we answer dozens of questions from our customers, but one of the most frequently asked by first-time users and experienced users alike is: How much cbd oil should I take? Unfortunately, there isn't a one-size-fits-all answer. It depends on a vary of things.
CBD Oil Dosage
In order to maximize the benefits of CBD, it is important to practice proper cbd oil dosage. Since the cbd industry is so new, the FDA has not created a Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) for CBD, which means CBD does not have an official serving size. So, if you are new to cbd oils or cbd tinctures, the biggest advice is to always start with small dosages and increase from there.
How much cbd oil should I take?
To find out how much cbd oil you should take is very easy but if you want us to break it down, we'll explain step by step why and how those values are being used to get your suggested cbd oil dosage. First and foremost, understand that there are several unique factors that affect cbd dosing. Just because your friend, John, for example is taking 35 drops per day, it doesn't mean that dosage is correct for you. There is no standard dose of CBD. Remember, everyone is different. The standard dosing may affect two different people in completely different ways. Here are some important factors to consider:
- The severity of the condition being treated
- The body weight of the individual
- The concentration of CBD
- The individual's body chemistry
The severity of the condition being treated
The severity of the condition being treated is very important in determining the dosage. The amount of cbd is relative to the severity, thus the more severe, the higher the cbd amount.
Body weight matters
A person's body weight matters when it comes to dosing! A 170 pound person's dosage will differ significantly than that of a person weighing 80 pounds. Please keep that in mind when figuring out the dosage.
Here's a standardized chart to determine the cbd amount for the severity of your condition. Your body weight and severity is relative to the amount of recommended cbd amount. This is a good starting point for CBD dosage.
