CBD Dosages: What To Take

Our suggestion: start at a low dose and slowly work your way up.

All of our oils come with a pipette, to help you find your level of CBD.

When taking CBD, always think about the milligrams of CBD you are consuming.

No two people will require the same dose, the FSA recommend that healthy adults do not take more than 70mg of CBD a day, unless a doctor agrees more.

The Science

A lot of scientific study has gone into trying to discover the optimal dosages of CBD oil. The best sources that we’ve read are the ‘meta’ studies, which weed through dozens or hundreds of clinical trials and report typical or average results. The Millar / Stone / et al paper found that micro dosing (under 10mg/day) is generally ineffective. And the Larsen / Shahinas paper studied the safety of larger dosing for specific medical conditions. Those are definitely worth a read if you’re interested in the technical aspects of CBD dosages.

Some people can experience the benefits of CBD more effectively at lower dosages. Therefore, it would make more sense to start off on a lower amount of CBD and steadily increase the dose over the coming days until you start to feel the benefits.

How do I know how much CBD I’m taking?

If you start with CBD oil, it’ll usually come in a dropper bottle than you can apply in droplets under your mouth. With some products bought on the high street, the amount of CBD in each dose can vary from the details on the packaging, so it’s important to buy from a reputable retailer.

Our pipettes are designed for easy application, meaning you will always know exactly how much CBD is entering your system. For example, using our Level 3, 5% bottle 1 millilitre worth of oil would be equivalent to 25mg of CBD.

For CBD capsules or edibles, there should be an indication on the packaging of how much is in each pill or serving.

Can you take too much CBD?

While studies have shown people can take high doses of CBD up to 1500mg per day without side effects, it wouldn’t be advisable to start with that dosage level.

As with any food or medication you put in your body, it doesn’t make sense to have more than you actually need to feel the positive impact of CBD – plus, it will save you money if you take your time to find your perfect dose, rather than taking the maximum amount each day if you don’t need to.

When side effects do happen, they tend to be minor in nature; fatigue, changes in appetite and weight for example.
