Trying to find the perfect CBD dosage to meet your needs? CBD dosage can be confusing to new and existing CBD users and with no set dosages, it can be hard to calculate what’s right for you! Regardless of what you are using CBD for, an adequate dosage is essential to make sure that it works.
Although there is still a lack of research in CBD, existing research suggests that taking CBD is relatively safe, as long as it’s taken properly, and responsibly. It is advised to always consult your GP before taking CBD.

Research and experience has found that there is no universal dosage for CBD. As everybody is different, there are many factors that could impact the recommended CBD intake for the individual.
- Concentration of CBD
- Pain Level
- From of CBD (tinctures, edibles, topicals).
The best way to find what works for you, is to start off with a lower dosage, and gradually increase your intake until you find one that works best for you. Taking too much or too little has been found to be ineffective at working within the body.
Working out the right dosage for you
Our body has an endocannabinoid system, and when stimulated with plant based cannabinoids it helps to regulate functions such as sleep, appetite, reproduction, fertility and moods. Our endocannabinoid system is made up of receptors CB1 and CB2. Although CBD does not fit directly into one or the other, CBD reacts with both of these receptors.
CB1 receptors target:
- Motor Activity
- Short term memory
- Pain perception
- Immune Cells
CB2 Receptors target:
- Adipose Tissue
- Skeletal Muscle
- Immune system
- Respiratory System
- Cardio Vascular System
Overall, due to everybody’s individual body chemistry and needs there is unlikely to be a universal dosage to determine how CBD should be used. With CBD available in many different forms, from edibles, to bath bombs and classic tinctures, it’s all about personal preference and experimentation.
