CBD dosage depends on many factors. Fortunately, it is not difficult to learn as long as we follow the proper safety rules.
In order to properly dose cannabidiol, several factors should be taken into account, such as the concentration of CBD in the product used. Also body weight, ailments with which we fight and the so-called personal factors.
Always pay attention to the percentages
The first and basic factor that needs to be considered is the concentration of cannabidiol in the selected product. 10% CBD Oil contains 100mg of cannabidiol in each milliliter. This concentration is considered high. There are not many products with a higher concentration on the market because the use of higher concentrations is not recommended.
A 10 ml vial with 10% CBD oil contains 1000 mg of cannabidiol. Since each milliliter contains about 20 drops, it is safe to assume that a drop of 10% of the oil contains 5mg of CBD. The table below presents the calculations for the most popular concentrations in the products of leading US and UK manufacturers.
The CBD dosage depends on the body weight.
Virtually every scientific work that deals with cannabidiol dosing talks about a different dosing and focuses on treating other symptoms. The CBD dosage used, which we read in scientific studies conducted since 1973, range from 15 to 1280 mg per day or from 1 to 10 mg / kg of body weight.
The only drug approved for use in the US that contains CBD is Epidiolex. It is given in concentrations of 2 to 10 mg per kilogram body weight during the treatment of epilepsy.
It is therefore worth assuming that a safe daily dose for beginners is 1 mg / kg, or about 70 mg of CBD for an average person weighing 70 kg. This corresponds to approximately one milliliter of oil at a concentration of 7.5%.
Dow to dose your CBD?
Depending on how serious your condition is, this may be the dose of cannabidiol you need to fight it. For this reason, we distinguish 3 main dosing methods depending on ailments and the need for CBD.
Macro Dosing – This is an intensive CBD treatment and is generally reserved for the worst and most debilitating diseases. Dosage ranges from 50 milligrams to 800 milligrams per day. Generally, macro dosing is reserved for the worst disease states. It may be effective in liver disease, seizures, epilepsy, tumors, cancer, and schizophrenia.
Standard dosage – This can be anywhere from 10 milligrams to 100 milligrams per day. Some people take the full dose at once, while others will split it up into multiple doses throughout the day. Dividing the dose can sometimes be effective in reducing any negative side effects of CBD. Standard dosing helps with conditions such as pain, menopause, arthritis, fibromyalgia, inflammation, autoimmune disease, Lyme disease, anxiety, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, autism, and multiple sclerosis.
CBD micro dosing – taking from one milligram to 20 milligrams per day. This can be a great place to start for new users or for CBD sensitivity assessments. Especially if you have a low tolerance to other medications or if you have a very low body weight. Micro dosing is also great if you want to take CBD as a multivitamin or as a regular supplement. Many people believe that cannabidiol can be effective for ailments such as sleep, digestive problems, nausea, headaches, mood, stress, anxiety, and depression.
Recently, we have developed a completely new products like CBD mints with constant amount of CBD in each meltlet. Now you don’t have to to measure out drops as every mint has exactly the same amount of cannabidiol
