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:
For example, a person who weighs 150 pounds would start with two daily doses of 20mg and could gradually build up to 375 mg twice a day or 250mg 3 x per day if needed. As with any drug, the appropriate dosage for CBD provides a therapeutic effect and is well-tolerated.
Managing your dose is easy with Jampha’s organic, full-spectrum CBD oil. The droppers are clearly marked, and each one-milliliter dropper contains 20mg-50mg of CBD.
CBD is safe to use and usually has little to no side-effects. However, if you have liver damage, a medical condition, or take prescribed medication, it is crucial to consult your doctor before taking CBD.
Legal for medical use in the U.S. since 2018, CBD’s benefits, mechanisms, and ideal dosage are still under investigation. Here are a few of the studies so far, showing the range of doses that worked for specific conditions.
|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|
While some people feel benefits 15 to 20 minutes after taking CBD, the best results come from consistent use over several months. CBD is fat-soluble and builds up in your body over time, becoming more effective.
Jampha has found that 90 dosing protocols as directed by your doctor are accross most situations the best formal dosing plan to see the best long term results.
The relationship between CBD and our body is complicated. Cannabidiol is a pleiotropic drug, which means it produces many effects through multiple molecular pathways. So far, science identifies more than 65 molecular targets of CBD inside the human body.
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.
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.
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.
