How to Start Using CBD | Dr. Josh AxeApril 30, 2022
CBD (also known as cannabidiol) is the non-intoxicating cannabinoid from the cannabis plant. Learn more about CBD and dosage guidelines here:
CBD Oil Dosage Guidelines:
1. There is no official serving size for CBD — Everyone reacts differently to cannabinoids, so you need to determine what dose works best for you.
2. Less is more — Taking more CBD than you need may actually be less effective. This is why starting with a lower dose and working your way up slowly can be beneficial.
3. Use it daily — To fully experience the positive effects of CBD, it’s best to use it consistently. You can take one standard dose 1–3 times daily or according to directions and/or your healthcare professional.
4. Determine the dosage for you — To do that, follow these steps:
a. Know your goals — establish what you are trying to achieve with CBD oil.
b. Give it time — start with the lowest recommended dosage for your goals and weight. If you don’t notice positive effects within 3–7 days, increase your dose by 1–5 milligrams (or as indicated by your health professional). Repeat this step until you find your personal optimal dose (not to exceed recommended amounts).
