How to use CBD Oil: A dosage guide



How to use cbd oil: a dosage guide

The review team at gets a lot of questions from those who read our reviews, often asking how to determine an appropriate dosage of CBD. Unfortunately, there is no recognized authority that can give you a solid number for a dose that will serve you best.

There are just too many variables and not enough research for anyone to provide definitive answers specifically tailored for you. We have published a blog post offering guidelines and suggestions, but unless you’ve read it, the questions and uncertainty most likely continue.

We decided that a graphic representation might be of help to CBD users and those researching the topic.

If you have purchased a CBD oil, it may give you a recommended serving size, but how do you know how much CBD you are getting? And is the recommended dose suited to all people and all purposes? Of course not!

You will most likely need to determine what dosage is effective for you, and you can do that if you follow the path in this infographic. The first part shows you just what to do to calculate the amount of CBD that you will get in a dropper (the most common means of dispensing CBD oils).

From there, it is a simple matter to determine a good starting dosage to deliver your desired CBD relief.

And what should that dosage be? Unfortunately, that’s an open-ended question that is usually different for different people. We, like most CBD authorities, will tell you that you will most likely have to experiment to find the right amount for you.

A small person wanting to relieve stress and remain calm through a busy day, for example, may only need five to ten milligrams of CBD to achieve their goal, whereas a large person looking to battle a serious ailment such as epilepsy, PTSD, etc. may require 50 milligrams or more on a daily basis.

The effectiveness of CBD can vary dramatically from one person to the next. Physical size, severity of your ailment or disease, and relative status of your endocannabinoid system (yes, you have one) are just some of the factors that cause CBD to affect different people differently.

CBD has exploded onto the health and wellness scene over the last few years, and it’s no surprise that many people are anxious to see if it will relieve their particular ailments.

Reports of amazing restorative properties are being confirmed and formally recognized by clinical studies being carried out in a variety of medical areas. Despite growing acceptance, there have not been enough studies for anyone to tell you what will work best for you.

You will have to determine that yourself. As recommended in the graphic and on our blog, look at your personal characteristics and level of health, then start with a low dosage appropriate to your set of circumstances and increase gradually to find the sweet spot for you.
