How to Determine the Amount of CBD to Take

August 14, 2019 08:00:24

When people want to use CBD for the first time, they are uncertain about the quantity they should take in order to get the effects they desire, such as pain relief or dealing with insomnia. While there is no clear cut answer regarding how much CBD one should take, the following factors can guide you as you decide the right quantity for your needs.

CBD Concentration

CBD concentration in products is usually indicated in milligrams. The higher the concentration indicated on the label, the less the quantity you may need to attain the effects that you want. For example, you may need to take more drops of a CBD oil marked 10mg when compared to the number of drops that you could take if the product was labelled 50mg.

Your Bodyweight

Like all medications, how much you weigh will determine what quantity of CBD you need for your condition. Individuals who are heavier generally require a larger quantity of CBD when compared to those who are lighter.

You may therefore read the product information and determine how much to take based on the guidelines that are provided for people of different weights.

The Desired Effect

The purpose for which you are using CBD could also play a role in determining how much CBD is sufficient. For example, someone who is using CBD to deal with chronic pain may need more drops when compared to another person who wants to relax and have a good night’s sleep.

This information is usually given to people who buy their CBD products from marijuana dispensaries, so you may need to do your own research about the quantity of CBD required to trigger the specific effects that you desire if you are getting it from another source, such as a gas station.

Your Tolerance Level

When people take CBD for the first time, the effects will show sooner with just a little of the substance consumed. However, as your body becomes more accustomed to CBD, you may need to take more and more of it in order to achieve the same results.

This is similar to what happens with other substances, such as alcohol and marijuana. Individuals with higher tolerance levels require larger quantities than those who are still new to the substance. Where do you belong on the CBD tolerance continuum?

Each of the four factors above exerts its influence on how much CBD you will need. To avoid having to do the complicated math of how those factors interact, find a simple online calculator and enter information in the available fields so that you get advice on how much CBD to take. It is better to err on the side of caution by starting with smaller quantities and work your way up if results aren’t forthcoming.
