How Much CBD Oil Should I Take?
The use of cannabidiol as a therapeutic substance is still in its infancy. Medical experts and scientists are only beginning to develop dosing schedules for hemp and its extracts (including CBD).
The main reason that doctors cannot prescribe cannabinoids is that there is no official recommended daily allowances (RDA) for people. As a result, dosage sizes can only be suggested.
Because there is no recommended dose, even the information in this article can only be used as an informational guide – and should never be used as medical advice.
Since there are too many variables in play when trying to figure out what dosage is best for you ie. such as weight, diet, metabolism, genetics, environment - a one - fits all prescribed dosage is an impossibility. At best we, as many professionals can only offer rough estimates. The primary strategy is to start your initial dosage low and increase it until you see the desired effects.
With these facts in mind, most people who are new to cannabidiol begin their journey by starting with the minimal suggested CBD dosage on any product, then gradually increasing the dose until they achieve the desired results.
It has been widely accepted amongst those in the CBD industry that a twice-daily dose of 25mg of CBD is a standard serving for people experiencing mild to chronic symptoms.
Furthermore, if you do not see any relief from the symptoms you can increase the amount of CBD by 25mg, every 3-4 weeks until you attain symptom relief. In contrast, if symptoms worsen then you may want to decrease CBD dosage by 25mg.
