In this section we answer the common question: "What dosage is right for me?" 


When it comes to finding the perfect CBD dosage, there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach. The dosage that works for you personally might be a completely different for someone else.⁠

How much should I take?

For beginners, we recommend to start low and go slow.

The legal recommended daily dose of CBD is 20mg.

In terms of our oils, this equates to:

  •  600mg strength : 20 drops a day
  • 1000mg strength : 12 drops per day
  • 1500mg strength: 8 drops per day

However, this is generally considered a conservative dosage by international standards. For context, in the USA it is 50mg a day.

It is important to remember that everyone's biochemistry is unique, and like with all food, beverage, cosmetic and medical products, everyone will react differently to CBD and will find it effective in different dosages and to varying degrees.

For this reason you may find that your body needs more CBD than someone else, or you may find that it is not as effective as someone else finds it.

It is recommended that you see how your body reacts on whatever amount you feel comfortable starting with, and then adjust according to how you respond. 

When should I take it?

How and when you administer this dose is entirely a matter of preference.

Half can be taken in the morning and half in the evening, or all can be taken at once. This dose can also be topped up at any time when necessary to treat an ongoing condition, if it flares up.

For best results, it is recommended that CBD be taken regularly and consistently at the same times each day. The full effect of it being incorporated into your routine can be felt after 7-14 days. However, CBD can also be used in isolation to treat situational conditions, and the effects will still be felt.
