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

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. 

CBD mediums of delivery and types

The most common way of taking CBD is ingesting it, typically through a few drops taken directly or mixed with food or a warm beverage. More recently, vapes have come to the fore as a socially applicable way to micro dose frequently during the day.

CBD also has a high absorption rate through the skin which is why its use has resulted in incredibly effective topical products for various ailments and general wellness.

Beverages, using water soluble CBD have been developed and require less CBD to achieve the same effect as other mediums due to its higher absorption rate and quicker activation time in the body

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.
