Getting the right amount of CBDGetting the right amount of cannabidiol and other cannabinoids is critical to realising the benefits of CBD. This can also be one of the trickiest things to get right.

9 out of 10 times you will receive the generic advice "take 2-3 drops twice or thrice a day and go slow and steady". This is the default advice available to a new comer to CBD between that and the various percentages of CBD each bottle contains, you would be forgiven if, like me, you literally were left with out a clue as to how much of your oil to take. This can leave you not getting the results you were hoping for and frankly lead to you wasting money or giving up with CBD all together.

I'm going to give you three tips that I was gave when I started out in CBD and I hope they will stand you in good stead when thinking about how much CBD you need to take to get your desired outcome.

Tip No One.

Forget about the percentages on the bottle 3% 5%, or 10% in 10, 20 or 30 ml bottles - look at the milligrams per bottle and in particular the milligrams per drop - for example our 10% whole plant oil contains 1000mg CBD and each drop contains 5mg CBD. Once you know what each drop contains you can then start to think about how many milligrams you need to have the desired effect.

Tip No Two.

Each person is different and everybody will have different reasons for taking CBD, what works for one person or for something like chronic pain will not necessarily be relevent for another person with insomnia. With that in mind you need to set a bench mark or a base level of dosing to start working out what's best for you. Find a good doseage calculator such as the one I have linked. Use the recommendation as a base line and monitor its success each week up the dose as necessary or reduce should you require it, until you find your "sweet spot"

Tip No Three.

Apply your own common sense to the above and don't be afraid to play with your amounts for example if you know your wrists and knees hurt more in the morning then front load your dose or add in an additional product such as chocolate, vapes or a spray which you can use to manage your needs, fine tuning your cannabinoids to meet your needs .

The last thing I'll say is always consult a pharmacist in relation to the medication you may all ready be taking as it's possible that the interaction with CBD can effect some.medications, as a general rule of thumb if you have to avoid grapefruit with your medication then you should probably not take CBD. I would recommend giving 2 hours between CBD and any prescription medications and if you need any advice feel free to message me or speak to your pharmacist.

Hopefully this will help you to avoid some of the pitfalls of in correctly dosing CBD and what could be an expensive trial and error process when finding out what dose works best for you.
