Le CBD
Dosing Basics

ground
rules

There is no one size fits all

Determining the right type and amount of CBD will be unique for you.

Everybody processes CBD differently

Based on key factors like age, weight, and diet.

The "right" dose of CBD can vary

Based on the need you are trying to address, and whether your condition is mild or severe.

how-to
dose

Start low, go slow

Start with a base dose, stick with it for up to 7 days and then increase 1-2mg a day until you find your sweet spot.

Find your Goldilocks Zone

Studies show that once you find the optimal dose, increasing that dose can sometimes make CBD less effective.

Be consistent

Using CBD daily (or at least regularly) is the best way to see results.

When in doubt, ask your doctor

It’s best to talk to your doctor about how CBD interacts with your current routine (daily meds, vitamins, etc.).

microdosing
cheat sheet

(Microdosing = small amount of CBD, multiple times a day)

Start with a small dose 2 - 5mg Up to 3x / day Maintain for 2-3 days (up to 7 days)
Increase dose, if necessary 4-10mg Up to 3x / day Maintain for 2-3 days
Increase dose, if necessary 8-20mg Up to 3x / day Maintain for 2-3 days
Increase dose, if necessary 16-40mg Up to 3x / day Maintain for 2-3 days

Use microdosing to tap into how very specific doses of CBD make you feel and understand the effects of a larger cumulative dose at the end of the day. Microdosing believers find that using less CBD can often be more effective.

standard dosing
cheat sheet

(Standard dosing = a single amount of CBD per day)

Symptom intensity 31 - 60 lbs 60 - 100 lbs 100 - 175 lbs 175 - 200 lbs
1 2 - 4mg + 4 - 6mg + 6 - 8mg + 8 - 10mg +
2 4 - 8mg + 6 - 12mg + 8 - 18mg + 12 - 20mg +
3 8 - 12mg + 12 - 18mg + 18 - 24mg + 22 - 30mg +
4 12 - 18mg + 18 - 24mg + 24 - 32mg + 32 - 40mg +
5 18 - 30mg + 24 - 40mg + 32 - 60mg + 42 - 60mg +

Some guidelines to help you understand how much CBD is right for you. Try to stick with a daily dose for about 7 days before making tweaks, again, more CBD is not always better.
