How much CBD Should I take?


Finding the correct dosage of CBD for your needs is a matter of trial and error because everyone responds to CBD differently depending on a number of factors including: age, weight, height, sex, health and condition.  In our CBD Research Library, many studies use a therapeutic dose of CBD of around 30mg as a baseline.  We recommend starting at 10mg and increasing from there. If you’re curious about the cost of different methods of CBD delivery and the cost for each one, we recommend starting with our CBD Buying Guide.

The cost per mg of CBD varies by tincture strength so the cost for mg of CBD for the 250mg bottle of CBD is 2x the cost of our 1500mg bottle.  Diluting your CBD with MCT oil available on Amazon or online retailers is always an option should you find your product choice to be too strong.

Number of doses per product by dose strength.

Regular (10-25mg): Think everyday supplementation for anxiety, arthritis pain, inflammation

Regular+ (20-50mg): Good for everyday supplementation that requires a little extra CBD power, post workout, more persistent anxiety

Strong (100-200mg): Depending on your body weight and your condition, you may find this dose theraputic

Extra Strength (200-400mg): Depending on your body weight and your condition, you may require a very high dose of CBD. CBD studies that used this dose level were for severe pain and anxiety that causes panic attacks.

Note: This is not medical advice nor should you ever take medical advice from a blog, website or retailer. Your health is our first priority and if you have questions or concerns about taking CBD with medication or any condition we ALWAYS recommend speaking with your doctor. These levels are not recommendations but simply a guide for which product to choose based on the dose that you’re comfortable with and find that you need.

If your preferred dose is on the higher end, we recommend a Bundle & Save product. With Bundle & Save product bundles you’ll save up to 40% on your monthly CBD Supplement cost. Doses marked with an “X” are not recommended for that product strength and we recommend purchasing a stronger product.
