CBD Dosing: How to Maximize the Benefits of CBD

Taking CBD to achieve the most benefit is very individualized.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, a network of cell receptors. CBD has a wide variety of benefits for numerous conditions with an excellent safety record. For many, CBD doses as low as 5-10 mg show benefits of improved sense of well-being & mental clarity.

While higher doses may be required when treating chronic pain, inflammation, and anxiety, most people do best by taking CBD twice daily, in the morning and evening.

A mid-day dose may be needed on more difficult days. Ramping up your dose slowly will help you determine the right dose without taking more than is needed. While more won’t hurt you, it may not be necessary.

Start recording how much you take and how well it works when you are trying to find your perfect dose.

  • Use a standard pain scale to rate how you feel before taking your CBD.
  • Record what dose and route of CBD you are taking.
  • Use the same pain scale to record how you feel after you take your CBD

Make sure you give your CBD a chance to work before you rate the effects. Stay on the same dose at the same times for at least 3 days before increasing your dose to give your body a chance to adjust.

Tracking your progress is an excellent way to help you adjust dosing. This guide is also helpful to bring with you when you see your healthcare professional so they can see your progress and incorporate it into your health routine.
