When determining the right CBD dose for you there are a few things you need to consider..
Everyone's dosage amount is going to be different for each individual based off of what symptoms they are using the product for and their desired results.
To find the right dose for you it is always recommended to start your regimen LOW at first and increase the dose as needed.
While figuring out your dose, it's important to know that you CAN'T overdose on CBD. Cannabinoids have no known toxicity to them. If you are taking too high of a dose, you will feel groggy at most and that's an indicator to know to cut back. Follow the general guidelines below:
To get a general idea of where to start, determine your level of pain and body weight.
Low Pain Level:
25lbs = 5mg
26-45lbs = 7mg
46-85lbs = 10mg
86-150lbs = 15mg
151-240lbs = 20mg
241+ lbs = 25-30mg
Medium Pain Level:
25lbs = 7.5mg
26-45lbs = 10mg
46-85lbs = 15mg
86-150lbs = 20mg
151-240lbs = 25mg
241+ lbs = 30-40mg
Severe Pain Level:
25lbs = 10mg
26-45lbs = 15mg
46-85lbs = 20mg
86-150lbs = 25mg
151-240lbs = 30mg
241+ lbs = 40-50 mg
* These doses will vary depending on pain tolerance as well. Adjust doses as needed!
The Mayo Clinic also gave a general guideline to follow:
For anxiety or loss of appetite keep doses low > 1mg - 15mg
For chronic pain > 10mg - 50mg as needed
Sleep Disorders > 40mg - 160mg as needed
MS Symptoms/ Similar Disorders > 5mg - 120mg as needed
Severe Epilepsy > 200 - 300mg daily
* Always check with your doctors before starting CBD, especially in severe health cases like epilepsy.
