How Much CBD Should I Take?

Published February 8, 2021

If you’re unfamiliar with using CBD, you may wonder how much you should take. We want to help you figure out what the best plan is for you, whether you’re just starting out or if you’ve been trying CBD for a while. Keep reading to find out how much CBD you should take.

What’s the Best Dosage?

There are several factors when it comes to figuring out how much CBD will work for you. They include:

  • Weight
  • Body chemistry
  • Potency of products

The best way to figure out the best dosage for you is to start low and go slow. Although research has shown that most people can tolerate high doses of CBD, you don’t want to start out with a high dosage because you don’t know how it will affect you. Experts suggest starting out with 2 to 10 mg of CBD. If you don’t feel effects, you can increase by 2 to 5 mg every day until you start to feel effects. Some people could use 20 mg while others could use 1,500 mg every day. Since everyone is different, you’ll have to experiment and adjust when first trying CBD.

CBD Flower Dosage

Unfortunately, there is no universal “right amount” that one should consume. As stated above, several factors may affect how much CBD fits your needs.

If you are a novice enthusiast and don’t know where to start with CBD flower, it's best to inhale a small amount.

It doesn’t matter what accessories you use to smoke from—you should only take one or two small puffs and wait for the effects.

After an appropriate wait time, you can decide whether or not you need to consume more.

CBD Shake Dosage

CBD shake can be sprinkled on-top of a packed pipe, rolled into a joint, or used for making edibles. Honestly, the opportunities are endless with this product.

Still, some customers want to know how much to use.

Regarding dosage, there isn’t a set amount. Remember, start small and adjust as needed.

CBD Oil Dosage

Since CBD oil comes with a dropper cap, finding your sweet spot shouldn’t be difficult at all.

Start with small drops (not the whole vial), and wait for the effects to set in.

If you feel that the effects weren’t as noticeable as you’d like, add to the amount previously used.

CBD Health Benefits

Since we aren’t doctors, there is no way to discuss the benefits of hemp legally. However, if you are interested in this subject, do your research and reach out to your physician for a thorough response.

Can You Take Too Much CBD?

Another thing you may be wondering about is the possibility of using too much CBD. While this study has shown that high doses are typically tolerated well by most people, it’s best to start off slow. Before you add CBD into your daily routine, you should consult your doctor, especially if you are taking other medications. Some side effects to look out for if you have too much CBD include fatigue and appetite changes.

How Do I Know It’s Working?

Many people use CBD products for recreational purposes. If you have never taken CBD before, you may be wondering how you will know if it is working. You will feel more relaxed, but you don’t want to feel too relaxed, like almost falling asleep. Depending on how you take CBD, you can feel effects almost immediately or within 15 minutes. If you don’t feel any different after you take your dose, then you should up the amount you are taking as mentioned previously.

Different Ways to Take CBD

There are several different ways you can use CBD. You can add it to food and drinks, use pre-made edible products, or come up with another way to use it.
