CBD Dosage: How do I know how much to take?

As CBD products grow in popularity, it is important to be informed on the important question of how much to take. The short answer is that everyone is different when it comes to dosing their CBD, and it may take a couple of weeks to really dial it in. Some individuals consume more CBD to manage chronic conditions, whereas some consumers use much less to deal with common conditions. Although you should consult with your doctor, we’ll do our best to provide some insight in this post.

Quick CBD Education

CBD comes from the hemp plant. It stands for Cannabidiol, a phytocannabinoid (organic compound) that is naturally produced in hemp plants. CBD is responsible for the therapeutic and medicinal benefits that are associated with hemp. CBD does not cause the intoxication or euphoria that comes from cannabis plants. It is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in marijuana, not CBD in hemp, which is the primary psychoactive component of cannabis plants. 

What is my Condition? 

In order to work towards finding the right dosage of CBD oil, you must first identify the condition you are attempting to treat. Consumers use CBD products for a variety of reasons, but some of the most common uses are to find relief from:

  • Chronic pain 
  • Anxiety 
  • Insomnia

Those struggling with chronic pain, anxiety, and insomnia are discovering the incredible upsides in trying out a natural solution such as CBD oil. 

CBD Dosage for Chronic Pain

Again, since everyone is different, it is important to consult your doctor and local CBD store to get the correct information. However, based upon the research and data collected at Minny Grown, we know that our customers use about 30-60mg of full spectrum CBD oil everyday to manage their chronic pain. 

Whether it’s arthritis or chronic inflammation from old injuries, Minny Grown customers use our tincture and capsule products to proactively treat and manage their chronic pain. For customers who may be experiencing occasional flare ups or intermittent pain, our muscle cream can be applied directly to the area experiencing the discomfort. For the ultimate CBD experience and relief from chronic pain, we recommend using a tincture or capsule product (30-60mg) in conjunction with the muscle cream. 

CBD Dosage for Anxiety

From the hustle and bustle to making life-changing decisions, educated consumers are turning to CBD products for natural ways to manage their stress and anxiety. Based upon our data at Minny Grown, we know that many of our customers use about 10-33 mg of full spectrum CBD oil to manage their anxiety. In our blog post “which CBD product is right for me”, we discuss all of the Minny Grown products and how each one of those products may help with your anxiety.

CBD Dosage for Insomnia 

According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, more than 50 million Americans suffer from over 80 different sleeping disorders. During these crazy times, it is no secret that many of us are having trouble sleeping. However, a natural solution for getting a better night sleep is hard to find. 

Instead of opting for common sleeping aids that may have long term side effects, consumers are turning to CBD products to help them fall asleep faster, and get a more restful night sleep. Based upon our data and research, Minny Grown customers are using about 15-30mg of full spectrum CBD oil about one hour before bed to get a better night sleep.  

Can you overdose on CBD Oil?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) no adverse health outcomes have been found to be linked to CBD usage as it has been found to be safe and well tolerated by humans. Although more research needs to be done, the early evidence strongly suggests that it is likely impossible to overdose on CBD oil.

Dosing CBD – Everyone is Different

As we stressed in the beginning of this post, when it comes to dosing CBD, everyone is different. For best results, we recommend first trying CBD at night, and to take it consistently. Start with a small dosage (10-15mg), and work your way up from that dose until you have found the best regimine for you. 

It’s important to remember that with any dietary supplement, you should consult your physician before use if you are pregnant, nursing, have or suspect a medical condition, or are taking any medications. The statements in this blog post have not been evaluated by the FDA, and individual results may vary.
