There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to finding the perfect CBD serving. This is because CBD works to rebalance our bodies, and every body is different.
There are many factors that impact how your body processes CBD, including age, weight and diet. You also need to take into account the type of relief you are seeking (for example, stress, sleep or pain). But with a little patience and our four steps below, you will find out how much CBD you should take to feel your best.
1. Find your starting point.
As a general guide, we suggest 0.5mg of CBD per kg in weight per serving (so a 60kg person would have 30mg of CBD). When measuring your serving, be sure to check the potency of your CBD product as there’s a huge range of strengths available on the market. Our products range from 10mg CBD per ml of oil all the way up to 100mg CBD per ml of oil.
2. Pause for an hour.
CBD takes varying amounts of time to take effect based on how you ingest it (taking it under your tongue, for example, will have a faster onset than drinking it), but all formats should take effect within an hour.
3. Gauge how you feel.
Feeling good? Great, you’re all set! If you aren’t feeling any positive effects, you can take another 1 to 5mg. Be sure to keep track of exactly how much you’ve taken so you know for next time.
Go low and slow. Start with a smaller serving and then gradually increase it over time until you get the desired effect.
4. Stick with it.
Most people experience the greatest benefits when they take CBD daily or at least regularly. You should, however, revisit your serving needs from time to time, as you may find you actually need less CBD to get the effects you want.
