There is no scientific data that says any particular amount is optimal and, by FDA guidelines, no one can say that any amount of CBD will cure, help or treat any health condition.
But, here’s what can be shared. Consider two things: your weight and the severity of your condition. The bigger you are, the more CBD one typically has to take. And, the more severe the situation, the more CBD one typically has to take.
The following chart may help in determining a “STARTING POINT” of how much you might want to take per day initially. Again, there is no scientific statement as to what is right, the following is a “best practices” guideline put together for your help:
The approach we recommend is to begin taking a particular amount twice a day for the first 3-4 days to build it up in your system and so you can truly see what it’s doing. After this amount of time, increase or decrease the amount you’re taking based on the results you’re seeing.
Increasing the dose will not always give a better result. An animal study published back in 1990 found that low to moderate CBD doses reduced anxiety, but CBD’s anti-anxiety effect disappeared at higher doses. Importantly, the authors note an inverted-U response to CBD. Out of the four doses tested, the lowest dose had a moderate anti-anxiety effect, the second-lowest dose had the greatest anti-anxiety effect, the third dose had a moderate effect, and the highest dose had no effect.
Here are some examples of dosing calculations:
1) If you want to take 15mg per day and your product has 0.83mg per drop, you would take 18 drops per day or 9 drops morning and night. (18 x 0.83 = 15mg)
2) If you want to take 15mg per day and your product has 2.5mg per drop, you would take 6 drops per day or 3 drops morning and night. (6 x 2.5 = 15mg)
3) If you want to take 15mg per day and your product has 4mg per drop, you would take 4 drops per day or 2 drops morning and night. (4 x 4 = 16mg)
