If you are just starting to take CBD oil then one question you might be asking is how much you should be taking. If you take too little you might not experience the needed relief. I will give some rough guidelines, based on my experiences and research, but really it comes down to trial and error. Of course, I’m not a medical professional, this is just my experience. For general health, as small as 1 or 2 mg can beneficial, and up to 15 mg a day is considered for general health. For pain or another health concern, at least 20 mg a day is a good place to start. I’ve read about some people taking upwards of 50 mg a day, but that is in very extreme situations. For GERD, I was taking anywhere from 15 to 25 mg a day depending on how I was feeling. So, it really just depends on your condition and needs. I’ve also noticed that over time you can drop the dose Into a maintainence phase as the condition improves. After around 4 or 5 months I was able to only use 5-10 mg a day and still feel well.
Finding out how many mg you need a day will help you decide on the CBD that is best for you. There are many different concentrations of CBD tinctures. One might have 300 mg of CBD while another might have 1500 mg. When you find out what your daily need is, you can buy the CBD oil that is most convenient.
So, pretty much it’s just testing it out with your own body. You may need more or less depending on the condition as well as a different amount of cb1 and cb2 receptors. There is no one size fits all.
