CBD oil dosages – How much should you take?

Despite its growth in popularity in recent years, there is still no recommended daily allowance for CBD oil dosages in either the UK or US. It is therefore important to take body size and diet into account, as well as the severity of symptoms before choosing a minimal dose and slowly increasing the dose until the symptoms are relieved.

HOW MANY CBD OIL PRODUCTS ARE THERE?

There are four main forms of CBD oil, each with different rates of absorption into the body:
– CBD oil isolates or concentrates are designed to be combusted and inhaled – similar to a cigarette – and its effects can be felt almost instantly.
– CBD edibles include any food product that incorporates CBD oil as an ingredient. These can include brownies, cakes, or even soups. Edibles often have a longer onset period, usually within 30-60 minutes.
– CBD tinctures are often supplied with a dropper that is used to place a designated number of droplets of oil under the tongue for a period of 60 seconds before swallowing.
– CBD e-liquid is designed to be vaporised using either an electronic cigarette or vaporiser. This form of CBD delivery is growing in popularity due to its convenience, and lack of combustion that could possibly damage the lungs.
Reputable sellers will always sell these products with a description that indicates the amount of CBD concentrate included. However, no matter how you introduce CBD into your body, it’s always a good idea to start with a small amount, and slowly increase over the course of a few months until you feel that your symptoms are relieved.

CAN I OVERDOSE ON CBD OIL DOSAGES?

A further benefit of CBD oil is – based on current research – that there is no dose that is lethal to humans. There have been occasions where an individual has taken 1500mg per day, with no serious side effects other than light-headedness, tiredness, dry mouth and other minor inconveniences.
However, the Indiana University Department of Medicine found that if CBD products are taken alongside a number of prescription drugs, the time it takes the liver to metabolise these drugs can be heavily affected, and so it is important to check with your GP, or a medical marijuana expert if the drugs you take already could be affected.

IS CBD OIL ADDICTIVE?

CBD oil is not physically addictive. In fact, there are many studies being carried out around the world which intend to evaluate the usefulness of CBD oil dosages as a method of addiction cessation.
It is, however, important to remember that humans can develop habitual addictions towards activities such as food and exercise amongst others, so it’s always a good idea to be aware of how you incorporate the use of CBD oil throughout the day.

SO, CBD OIL DOSAGES – HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?

For pain relief or anxiety, clinical studies have recommended that you start off by taking a dosage of between 2.5mg to 25mg of CBD per day, although experts always recommend that you check with your physician before doing so. If after a week or two you feel no effect, then you can increase the dosage in small increments until the desired outcome is attained.
In regard to the more severe conditions that CBD has been credited with reducing the symptoms for – such as multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and nausea due to cancer treatment – it is always advised that you consult an expert as many of these conditions have, anecdotally, been aided with varying amounts of THC included, and would require a medicinal marijuana prescription from a GP.
