CBD Dosage: Does It Differ Per Person? 

Posted on December 23rd, 2020 to AroMed CBD & Aromatherapy Blog

If you ask a hundred people now what they would say is the most important thing in the world, a good many of them would say health. Recent global events have proven that neither fame nor riches can take the place of having a strong and healthy body and mind.

With the continuous pursuit of health and wellness at this day and age, people are switching to more natural ways of maintaining their overall wellness. CBD has been at the top of people’s list because of its many benefits.

For those considering incorporating CBD products such as oils and blends into their regular health regimen, the first thing you should consider learning is proper dosage.

Why You Should Know the Proper Amount or Dosage

Because of its meteoric rise in recent years, people including non-experts offer recommendations or estimations on how much CBD should be consumed. All the more reason why you should be well informed about proper dosing for various health conditions.

While the FDA has not yet approved any medical intake of CBD, the list of approved cannabidiol substances for medical uses includes Epidiolex (for seizure treatments), Marinol and Syndros (for therapeutic uses), and Cesamet.

As with any drug or substance, and even other substances we consume such as food and beverage, knowing the dosage or quantity is important since ingesting too little will not create the desired impact for our bodies, and taking in too much or overdosing will be risky, if not harmful.

Different Doses for Different Medical Conditions

It is important to note that there is no generic dose because consuming CBD depends on the patient’s anatomical makeup. When determining the appropriate dosage, a doctor will factor in weight, age, lifestyle and any underlying health conditions.

Another important thing to watch out for is the mixture and concentration of the CBD since there are different variants and forms available in the market. CBD products come in oils, blends and extracts, so always apply due diligence by getting your products from a trusted store that even offers guidance in proper dosage and intake of the CBD products you purchase.

Mayo Clinic recommends the following CBD dosages per medical condition:

Condition

Dosage

Remarks

Epilepsy

200-300 mg of CBD by mouth

Up to 4.5 months

Sleep disorders

40-160 mg CBD by mouth

Glaucoma

a single CBD dose of 20-40 mg under the tongue

Doses beyond 40 mg might increase eye pressure

Chronic pain

2.5-20 mg CBD by mouth

average of 25 days

How New Users Should Take CBD

Those who are new to taking CBD should start with small doses and gradually increase over time. When we introduce new substances to our body, smaller doses can prevent any untoward anatomical or biological reactions from scaling up or going full-blown.

Observe how your body responds to CBD. On the onset, it may make you feel more relaxed and ease the tension from your body. As you slowly and intentionally increase dosage, you will see how it will impact the targeted health condition by following the recommended dosage, duration and frequency of intake.

Essentially it is still best to take CBD products in harmony with your physician’s advice. Since they have knowledge of your medical history, they will know best how to treat reactions to CBD and manage any symptoms or side effects, although these cases rarely happen. Coupled with a healthy lifestyle, taking CBD will be a natural complement to your routine.
