Dosing Basics

Dosing with CBD is different for everybody. As with most herbal remedies, there’s no one-size-fits-all recommendation. There are many variables to take into consideration, such as the individual’s weight, metabolism, environment, genetics, symptoms, and ailments, as well as the product’s potency and consistency.

The Importance of
Dosing and Intention

Generally it’s a good idea to “start low and go slow” to find your ideal dose over time and increase as you need it. The only way to find your ideal dose is by tuning in to your body and its needs. Everyone has a different pain threshold and tolerance. If you’re using CBD for mild to moderate inflammation and/or stress and anxiety, 5 milligrams two to three times per day is a good place to start. Although this dose may be sufficient, it can easily be increased to 10mg if no improvement is felt or seen after one or two weeks. Increase the dose until relief is felt.

When macrodosing CBD daily (more than 20mg per day), there are some precautions to take if you’re also using SSRI antidepressants, blood pressure pills, and/or thyroid medications. This dose of CBD combined with these specific medications can be taxing on the liver. Please consult your physician.
