It's always best to talk to your doctor before starting CBD, and he/she can recommend how much to take. This is particularly important if you're taking meds, as there can be a negative interaction between CBD and prescription drugs.

The general rule is to start low and go slow. In other words, start with a low dosage, and then if you haven't felt a change, gradually up the dose.

It's usually recommended to start with 5mg-10mg twice a day. If you haven't felt any effect after a week, increase the dose by about 5mg. Keep monitoring any effect the CBD may be having until you feel an improvement in your condition. Keep track of how much CBD you're taking and any change in how you're feeling. If you haven't spoken to a doctor, you shouldn't go above 70mg a day.

You may have read about different health conditions requiring a particular amount of CBD, but each person reacts differently to the product. There are many variables that determine the ideal dose, such as your weight, health condition, and concentration of CBD oil. The bottom line is that there are no scientifically calculated dosage guides for CBD, so talk to your doctor.
