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.
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.
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 = 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 = 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.
