How Much CBD Hemp Oil Should I Take?
There is no one-size-fits-all dosage guideline. There are a myriad of variables to consider.
What type/potency CBD product are you taking? First, you have to think about the product itself; is it a CBD isolate or full spectrum hemp oil (like ours). What potency is it? Is it a low dose such as 500mg per oz (or 16.6mg of total Cannabinols (CBNs) per full dropper) or a high potency product like our 1500mg per ounce (or 50mg of total CBNs per full dropper). All of these factors come into play when dosing.
What symptom are you dosing the CBD product for? Next you’ll have to think about what ailment you want to subside by taking the CBD oil. CBD and hemp oil have had numerous studies done to show the positive benefits with anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, epilepsy and much more.
What is your sensitivity level? Every person reacts to medication and substances differently as every body and personal history is different. You’ll have to asses what your medical sensitivity is right for you. We always recommend starting off at the base dosage and working your way up so as to not have any negative experiences.
Generic Dosing for 1500mg/oz CBNs of Full Spectrum Hemp Oil
(for 750mg hemp oil, feel free to double dosage, but ALWAYS start low as every body reacts differently)
Medical studies are still either in trial or too early in the stages as CBD and full spectrum hemp oil are new to market. So scientific evidence for dosing and symptoms are still wait-and-see.
CBD/Hemp Oil Dosage For Sleep & Insomnia
We’re still waiting for scientific research, but there are good studies that show CBD may hold promise for REM sleep. We recommend starting with 1/2 dropper before bed and dose up to 3 full droppers per night before bed. This would equal 160 mg of CBNs/dose (3.15ml at 1500mg/oz potency).
CBD/Hemp Oil Dosage For Anxiety
Again, the level of anxiety is different for everyone. For some it’s only in social situations, for others it’s just leaving the house. But, there is promising evidence that Cannabidiol (CBD) can produce an anxiolytic-like (anxiety reducing) effect. We recommend starting with 1/2 dropper 1-4 times daily as needed and dosing up if needed.
CBD/Hemp Oil Dosage for Chronic Pain
As we’ve said before, chronic pain can come in many forms and in varying degrees. Some may be caused by an injury, others may be from a condition such as fibromyalgia or Lyme disease. But there is good evidence that the combination of cannabinoids THC & CBD produce a reduction in allodynia (pain sensation). That being said, we recommend starting with 1/2 dropper 1-4 times daily as needed and dosing up if needed.
