What is the best CBD dosage for me?

Naturally, your body weight will play an important role in determining the best dosage of CBD for you. Lighter patients have less body mass for the CBD to work upon, and so they will feel the effects of CBD oil quicker than their heavier peers.

Here is a useful chart to help you identify the right dosage for you:

WeightMild effectsModerate effectsStrong effects
0-130 lbs11 mg or less12-14 mg15-187 mg
130-230 lbs18 mg or less19-23 mg24-27 mg
230+ lbs23 mg or less24-30 mg31-45 mg

It’s worth bearing in mind that the above should only be seen as guidelines. There are many factors that affect dosage, and the table above should simply guide your process.

Start small and increase as appropriate

As with any new medication, it’s worth starting off small.  it’s a good idea to start off on the lower end of the dosage bracket.

If you do not feel any effects during the early stages of your treatment, increase your dosage gradually in increments. Upping your dosage by a few milligrams every seven days should be enough for you to gauge how effective your current dosage is.

While this might mean you’ll need a few weeks to find the dosage that works for you.

Monitor yourself to track your progress

As you start your CBD oil treatment, start a diary to keep track of your progress. Carefully note any changes in your condition, no matter how small. This is vital for determining the best dosage of CBD for you.

Keep an eye out for any new symptoms you experience. Changes in appetite, mood, fatigue, and so on should all be considered. If you notice any new changes in your body, consult with your GP.
