The CBD Dosage differs for different people. It is confusing, since the FDA has not yet given a recommended daily allowance, so there isn't an official dosage size, but today I'm going to explore what dosage would be best.
People with a higher body mass will need more CBD to fully experience its effects. A good rule to follow is 1-6mg for every 10 pounds of body weight, so 20-33mg would be great for a patient weighing 200 pounds, while 15-25mg would be best for a 150 pound patient.
Start Small and Increase
While this is a good system, it isn't the best, since every human is different, and every human has different substances in their body, so what works for you may not work for someone else.
If you use this dosage initially, you can check how it does for you and then increase it until you get the perfect dosage.
If you are in doubt, the best thing to do is consult your GP. Doctors don't know everything about CBD, but should be able to work out how the CBD is reacting with your body.
How Do You Accurately Measure the Dosage?
While we now know what dosage we need, we need to know how much dosage we get. While it seems easy with the strength on the packaging, you're not likely to have a whole bottle of CBD oil at once.
CBD Tincture Oils
These CBD oils are easily consumed by using a dropper to place the oil under the tongue, and leaving it there for 30 to 90 seconds before swallowing. The dropper usually holds 1ml of liquid so, if you know the full amount of oil in the bottle, you can work out the strength with this simple equation.
[Total CBD in Bottle] ÷ [Number of Milliliters in Bottle] = MGs of CBD in a Dropper
So if you had a 10ml bottle of Intense CBD Oil by Somnio, you would do:
1500 ÷ 10 = 150mg of CBD in the dripper.
Like with CBD oil, you will start by working out how much is in the dropper. Once you know this, you will know how much you are putting into a single tank. Keep your eye on when you refill the tank and how many times you vape during the day.
If your proper dosage is 25mg, and you are using a 1000mg bottle of CBD, a single tank would contain approximately 33.33mg of CBD. To get the correct dosage, you would vape a single tank periodically through the day.
An Accurate Way
While the above systems are good, they are only semi-accurate. For a completely accurate way to get your dosage, take CBD capsules, since they provide you with an exact amount of CBD. If your optimal dosage is 16mg to 25mg, simply get a bottle of 25mg CBD capsules.
Other ways of getting an accurate amount include CBD edibles, CBD gummies or CBD beverages.
