How much CBD to take

How much CBD to take

CBD works much like a vitamin pill.  How much CBD to take?

As a food supplement, you are aiding your body to replace lost vitamins and help your body achieve homeostasis.

CBD is similar as it’s a phytocannabinoid plant extract that supports your naturally occurring Endocannabinoid system and stimulates your receptors to send out positive messages to the rest of your body.

Initially, it’s hard to know how much CBD to take

Start at a very low dosage

We would suggest you begin with a low 500mg in a 10ml bottle.   One drop twice a day for three days.   Then increase to three times a day.  After three days increase to two drops each three times daily.  As there is no head effect, how will you know how much is enough?

Folks use CBD for a host of reasons, and everyone has different absorption rates. It’s up to you to establish what your levels are.

In the CBD Oil Oral Drops PIPET

each drop is roughly  0.05ml

Not a full pipet but a SINGLE DROP

dosage guide

A 10ml bottle of CBD Oil has 200 DROPS

In a 500mg CBD Oral Oil 10ml Bottle


Each drop contains 2.5mg of CBD if you want to take 20mg you would take 8 drops per day

Ask yourself the reason you want to take CBD?

For a sense of wellbeing; it’s recommended to use just 0.5mg – 1.5mg a day or you may want a tad more.  If you are recovering from an illness, it’s suggested you use more.  Again, always build up your levels at a gentle pace.  There is a point at which you will plateau, and find your ideal dosage.

You found your level

The day you increase and don’t feel any more benefit than the previous dosage. You found your level.  Your levels may change over time, depending on how you are feeling.  You will get to establish those areas yourself.  To find my levels, I kept a diary and looking back could see the improvements over the weeks, until I arrived at my level.  It is more apparent to me now, I am aware when I’ve forgotten to take it.

How much CBD to Take

People take CBD for different reasons.  So the dosage will be different for each case.  Some people have asked how much CBD to take to assist with sleep we would say around 1 to 6 mg.

We have been asked how much CBD it takes to help with tremors?;  we would suggest anything between 5 and 10 mg.

How much CBD to take For Chronic pain is anything up to 20mg of THC recommended.
