CBD Dosing Information
Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow individual brand relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
1) Estimating your dosage based on your body weight
As with most substances, individuals with more body mass will require more CBD to experience its effects. With that being said, a good rule of thumb to determine your proper CBD dosage is to take 1–6MG of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight based on the individual’s level of pain.
1mg per 10lbs for moderate relief up to 6mg per 10lbs for severe pain and discomfort.
2) Start low and increase gradually
Say you have a friend who weighs about 150 pounds. They take 50mg of CBD twice each day, which they claim provides all kinds of benefits. Since you are approximately the same weight, they recommends the same dosage for you.
Here’s why this isn’t the best way to choose your dosage:
Not only is each person made differently, each person has their own unique history with the use of substances, medications, supplements, and other things that have been put in their body. Because of this, each person has different body chemistry, and this will affect how your body reacts to CBD. Remember, “what works for your friend, may not work for you.”
With that being said, it is important to first determine your initial dosage based on your weight, gauge how your body reacted to that amount of CBD, then increase gradually while continuing to monitor your body’s reactions until you find the perfect dosage that works for your situation.
