With a wide range of benefits, including relieving pain and anxiety and protecting your heart and nervous system, the best Cannabidiol (CBD) dosages vary. Here is what research reveals so far about how much CBD to take.
Based on studies and clinical experience with the CBD medication Epidiolex, the medically recommended dosage for CBD is as follows:
|Condition||CBD Dose||Form Taken|
|Type 2 diabetes||100 mg twice daily||Oral|
|Pain due to cancer||50–600 mg per day||Oral|
|Parkinson’s disease||75–300 mg per day||Oral|
|Huntington’s disease||Up to 12 sprays per day||Sativex nasal spray (contains CBD and THC in 1:1 concentration)|
|Psychotic symptoms||200–800 mg daily||Oral|
|Inflammatory skin conditions||2-3 x/day for 3 months||Topical gel|
If you’re new to CBD, it’s wise to give yourself three months to track dosage and progress so you can accurately assess its benefits.
What Influences My CBD Dose?
How long and consistently you take CBD will impact its effectiveness, but other things can influence your ideal dosage as well.
Your body weight, metabolism, current health, and other medications you use can change how much CBD you need for the results you want.
For example, people who exercise regularly metabolize fat faster. Since CBD is fat-soluble, people with a lower density of fat cells will find CBD’s effects to wear off more quickly.
Is CBD Safe in High Doses?
Two research reviews, one in 2011 and the second in 2017, found continuous use of CBD is tolerated well by humans even at high doses of 1,500 mg a day.
However, the best practice is to start with a small CBD dose and build over time until you are satisfied with the effect. Some patients and conditions respond better to smaller doses, so more CBD is not always better.
Only a small percentage of CBD users experience side-effects. They may include:
If you experience side-effects, reduce or stop your dose and let your doctor know what happened.
