How Much CBD Should You Be Taking?

3 min read

As marijuana legalization sweeps the United States, the benefits of the cannabis plant are becoming increasingly well known, and CBD usage is becoming more and more accepted by mainstream medicine. CBD is used by thousands of people to combat a wide variety of issues, often with no side effects. It’s no surprise that CBD is growing in popularity all over the world. 

However, it can be challenging to determine how much CBD to take, especially if you’re new to the world of CBD or considering adding it to your daily supplement regimen with a health goal in mind. 

The Right Amount of CBD Depends on the Person

Because there are a wide variety of people who use CBD for a myriad of issues and ailments, it’s impossible to determine one single perfect serving for every person. However, the correct serving for each person will maximize the potential benefits of the cannabinoid product you choose and will help ensure your long-term success with CBD.

Finding the right amount of CBD to take can be tricky, because CBD effectiveness can be impacted by various factors, including the height and weight of a person and what they’re suffering from. Age and metabolism will also play a role in determining your ideal CBD regimen.

Finding the Right CBD Balance for YOU

If you’re new to CBD, we recommend starting with 25-50 mg a day.

Then listen to your body. Take note of how the product is affecting you, how long those effects last, and if you’re achieving the degree of relief you’ve been seeking. Before increasing the amount you’re taking, try consuming your CBD at different times during the day since effects may differ when taken in the morning versus the evening. When you find a time that works for you, start taking the CBD consistently at the same time of day every day. No matter where you start, you can increase your serving size with time. If you don’t feel the effects you’re looking for after two weeks, try increasing your intake by 10 mg to see if a higher concentration works better for you.

When in doubt, remember: the true expert in your CBD regimen should be you. Start small with the highest quality CBD products available on the market. Then take time to monitor your results. Your body and mind will thank you.
