The short answer is that it depends on the condition you are treating and also what weight you are.
There is no one size fits all, although there is general guidance that you shouldn’t take more that 70mg CBD per day – but again this really is dependent on your weight and need.
So why is this?
Put simply as with most “treatments” it depends on:
Your Size and Weight
Severity of condition being treated
Your individual body chemistry
Your tolerance to CBD
It’s normally best to start with a low dose and gradually work up until you find the level that is right for you.
How to Calculate Your Ideal CBD Daily Dose
So although the best CBD daily dose is unique for everyone, there are some general rules of thumb we can use taking into account your weight and the strength of the effect you are needing (low, medium or high strength).
This is commonsense really if you think about it – a 50kg jockey will need a smaller dose than a 120kg Rugby player, or someone looking for mild relief from an anxiety won’t need as much CBD as someone looking to treat persistent chronic pain.
As mentioned start low and then gradually increase – if you start to experience any unwanted side effects then go back to the lower dose.
Here’s a simple chart to show how this works out – and we have a detailed calculator below that to allow you to do a more precise calculation
NOTE: These measurements are in CBD mg and not CBD oil – you can use our other calculators to show you how much mg of CBD there are in the various Oils or other CBD products you are using
