CBD Dosing Guidelines

CBD Dosing Guidelines

CBD-rich hemp oil comes in various concentrations and forms. Gentle Hemp offers oils, capsules, creams, edibles and terpenes in different milligrams of CBD per package. Here is a general guide for CBD dosing. When it comes to CBD, start with the lowest dose possible to assess how you feel. Consult your physician if you are currently taking pharmaceuticals as some effects can be amplified or dulled when taking CBD.

Every Body Is Different

What you will find on this page is meant to be a guideline, a starting point of reference. The fact remains that everyone is in a different place and will react differently to their CBD dosage. As serving size or dosage of CBD differs for each person,it is best to start small and gradually increase until you experience the desired result.

CBD Oil Dosing

Concentrations vary between preparations, ranging from 1 mg per dose to hundreds of milligrams. This makes it easy for
consumers to get the dosages they need in a form they find easy to use. The thing to remember is to look at the TOTAL
CBD mg on the label. That total is divided among the serving per package so you know just how much you are getting per
serving, whether it be a pump of cream, a gummy, a capsule or a dropper of oil.

CBD Dosages

Mayo Clinic suggests CBD dosages on scientific research, publications, traditional use, or expert opinion. Cannabinoid
dosages and duration of treatment depend largely on the disease.
