5. What dosage should I take?

How much should I take? 

Everyone is different, this can mean that everyone’s preferred dosage might be slightly different too. This is why our CBD tinctures come with graduated pipettes, so that measuring out small increments and accurate dosages is easy. You may need to experiment slightly to find a dosage that works for you but here is some information for you to start with.

The amount of CBD you take could depend on a range of factors, including:

  • your body weight
  • your individual body chemistry
  • the concentration of CBD in each tablet, capsule, drop, or gummy

As with any new supplement, it’s best to start with a smaller dosage and gradually increase it. This could mean starting with 20 to 40 mg a day. After a week, if you feel you want more, increase this amount by 5 mg. Continue this until you feel you’ve reached a dosage you are happy with (up to a max of 1mg per KG or 70mg)

How to calculate dosage:

Some products, such as CBD gummies, capsules, or tablets, tell you how much is in a single serving. For example, our gummies contain 10mg per gummy. This makes it very easy to monitor and adjust intake in 10mg increments.

If you want to be able to easily increase or decrease dosage in small amounts then you could try one of the oils that comes in a graduated pipette for easy dosing. As you can measure as little as 0.2ml at a time, you have complete control over your dosages. You can see in the below table, how much CBD you will take from each concentration of oil.
