If you’re new to the world of CBD and aren’t sure where to start, fear not! We’re here to answer your most common questions in order to make CBD dosing simple. With the sheer variety of strengths, forms and flavours on offer, it is easy to see why you might be feeling overwhelmed. But as long as you purchase your CBD from a safe and reputable brand, you can feel confident knowing that what you’re consuming is perfectly safe, legal and won’t get you ‘high’.
So now you’ve shopped around and found a high-quality CBD brand you can trust, let’s move onto dosage.
How much should I take?
Since everyone has a unique experience with CBD, there is no one-size-fits-all recommended dosage. The amount you should consume depends on a variety of factors, including:
- Your age, gender and Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Your CBD tolerance and body chemistry
- The concentration of CBD in each spray, drop, capsule, gummy or piece of chocolate.
Discovering the right dosage for you will require an element of trial and effort. You may need to tweak the amount each week until you feel you have the right dose for you.
Can I take too much?
While CBD is shown to have a good safety profile, even at high dosages, we recommend introducing it into your daily routine gradually. So try starting with a mild-strength concentration, such as Love Hemp® CBD Liquid Oral Oil Drops 300mg, and a low dose – such as 10mg per day - to gauge your body’s reaction. After a week, you can consider doubling the dose to 20mg per day and increase as desired up to a maximum daily dose of 70mg.
What is split dosing?
Split dosing is when you take half of your daily dose in the morning and the other half in the evening, giving your body a steady dose of CBD throughout the day. Try incorporating it into your normal daily routine, such as with your morning coffee or after your evening workout. That way, you’re less likely to forget to take it.
