How Much CBD Should I Take?
Determining the proper dosage for your body can be a tricky process, but it's important to get it right. Once you find the right dosage, you'll be able to enjoy all of the benefits of CBD and feel great, as well as avoid wasting money by using excess product.
As a baseline, our suggested dose is 0.25 mg CBD multiplied by your body weight in pounds on a daily basis. So if you weigh 120 pounds, you should take 30 mg CBD daily (0.25 x 120 = 30). And if you weight 200 pounds, then you should take 50 mg CBD daily (0.25 x 200 = 50). Ideally, split your doses equally between morning and evening. With this formula you can now easily figure out your suggested dose!
That said, there is no 'official serving size' or standard dose'. Your ideal dosage will be based on a variety of factors including your weight, metabolism, the type of product that you're using (tincture or softgel), and body type. For the best potential for success we recommend some experimentation and consistent usage to determine the right dosage for you--it can take 2-3 weeks to determine the proper dosage but once you witness CBD's
Tinctures: If you're new to CBD, it can be confusing to figure out how much tincture you should take. It's all about getting the right dosage. To do that, you need to know what kind of tincture you purchased: 500mg or 1000mg.
Once you've figured out which strength of tincture you bought, the next step is figuring out how much CBD is in each drop. The formula for this is 0.25mg multiplied by your bodyweight in pounds (for example, if you are 120 pounds, that would be 30mg).
Next, we need to convert that number into drops by dividing it by 0.8mg per drop (for example, 30 divided by 0.8 equals 35 drops). That means if you're a 120-pound person taking 30mg of CBD per day for best results, you should take between 30 and 40 drops per day (experiment with between 30-40 drops and see what works best for you). If you're 200 pounds, our formula suggests taking 60-70 drops per day (experiment between 60-70 drops per day and see what is optimal).
That's all there is to it! Once you know how much CBD is in each drop and how many drops there are
If you are looking for the most accurate way to calculate how much CBD oil you need, we recommend using a tincture bottle with a dropper.
Let’s run through this same exercise using our 1000mg tincture bottle which also contains ~600 drops of CBD oil. It is important to note that since this product is 2x the concentration that each drop now contains ~1.6mg of CBD. For the same 120 pound person that we used as an example above, you would now take ~15 drops per day (experiment with between 15-25 drops per day to see what is optima)l. For the 200 pound person, they would take ~30 drops per day (experiment with between 25-35 drops per day and see what works best for your body).
Topical lotions are perfect for treating specific areas of your body where you feel discomfort or pain.
Topical lotions are applied to the skin like our Rub, allowing you to apply a concentrated dose of relief where you need it most. Simply apply liberally to affected areas. Topical products tend to have slower absorption versus supplements that you ingest since they’re absorbed into your system via the skin but they are very easy to use, and make you feel great.
Dosage is an important part of using CBD. You want to get the right amount of CBD in your system, so you can start feeling its effects. But how much CBD should you take? And how do you know if it's working?
Here are some tips on finding your perfect dose:
Start Small – We recommend starting with smaller doses and gradually increasing as needed. Although too much CBD won’t cause any harm, taking more than you need could waste product unnecessarily. If you’re a tincture user, start with 1/2 of our suggested dose for the first week of your Tincture in the morning or one dosage of Tincture in the evening 60 minutes prior to bedtime.
Take Daily – Everyone’s body is different when it comes to CBD. Many people need to build up the substance in their system in order to start seeing benefits. If you don’t see results right away, keep up your daily doses for four weeks, paying close attention to the changes you sense in your body.
