What is the Optimal CBD Dosage?

Factors of CBD Dosages

When it comes to achieving the best dosage of CBD, a lot depends on what results you’re looking to achieve. Everyone from experienced CBD users to complete novices wonder this, but realistically there are no fixed rules on how much CBD an individual should be taking. We can however advise on some factors to keep in mind to help you make an educated decision. Firstly, it is important to remember that CBD intake is affected by the following influences:

  • The concentration and quality of CBD
  • Your bodyweight
  • Your unique body chemistry
  • The condition / ailment being treated

The main rule is that there isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ dosage when it comes to CBD and you’ll likely have to go through some trial and error to work out the optimum dosage for your individual needs. You should also be aware that as your body changes over time, so too do the receptors in your Endocannabinoid System which are directly responsible for interactions with CBD. As a result, the amount of CBD you require will change throughout the course of your life.

CBD & Bodyweight

You should first estimate how much CBD you require based on your bodyweight. As with most substances, individuals with a higher bodyweight will require more CBD to experience its effects than someone with a lower bodyweight. A good rule of thumb to determine your proper CBD dosage is to take 1-6mg of CBD for every 10 pounds of bodyweight. Use your level of pain or the severity of your ailment to work out whether to go for the lower or higher end of this amount. If you are taking CBD to better your general wellbeing and peace of mind, adjust the amount of CBD accordingly until you become aware of improvement.

Another important piece of advice is to start off small and increase your dose slowly over time. Everyone is made differently and because of this we are all affected by substances at different rates and intensities. With this in mind, start with a low dosage based on your weight and gauge whether that amount is enough for your needs. If you want to increase the amount of CBD you’re taking, do so gradually while paying close attention to how your body is reacting until you find the perfect dosage for your particular requirements.
