How much CBD should you take?

The right CBD dose for you can depend on a few factors, including your weight, any other health conditions you may have, and medication you’re taking for those conditions. It also depends on your personal body chemistry and sensitivity to CBD. When determining your ideal CBD dosage, your goal is to find the lowest dose that provides the benefits you need with few or no side effects.


Using the dosage chart below, start with the lowest recommended dose for your body weight, and gradually increase from there until you feel the desired effects. Once you’ve found that dose, you can stick with it. Studies show that people do not develop a tolerance to CBD the way they do with other cannabis products like marijuana.

The standard recommendations is to base your CBD dose on your body weight. Take 1 to 6 mg per 10 pounds of body weight. We’ve done the calculations for you, so you can find the lowest starting dose for your body weight in the chart below:

For example, if you are living with extreme chronic pain, you will likely require a higher dose on a daily basis than someone who takes CBD occasionally to cope with situational anxiety.
